Weekend Shopper: 4gb SD for $10, bags, Sony A700H, and more!

It must be Friday, because it's time for the Weekend Shopper! Hide your wallets now! These deals are too tempting to pass up :)

We start with a popular deal from last week making a comeback: The 4gb Sandisk SDHC SDSD4GBHC memory card is on sale for $10 at Abe's of Maine. This special price is good until Sunday night, then it returns to its regular price. This puts the price at a $2.50 per gigabyte. Also at $10 they offer a Sandisk 4gb USB drive.

Fizzle the temptation! The Panasonic TZ5K is now down to $260 at Amazon, a drop of about $17 since yesterday when we posted the Top Seller Charts round-up.
It's not shipping yet, but if you have your eye out for the silver Panasonic FZ28, it is currently on pre-order sale at Amazon for $365, down from $400. This comes hot on the heels of its review at Trusted Reviews. Discussion at RAWsumer.


Sony-Minolta fans are eagerly awaiting the announcement of their highly anticipated Alpha A900 flagship, but you can't take pictures with future-cams. Those looking for something right here, right now, may be interested in the newly discounted Sony A700H (A700 + 18-200 Sony lens) going for just $1300 at Sony Style. For a list of A700 reviews, be sure to check the DSLR Reviews Organizer Map.

Next we move to Adorama where we find two nice camera bag deals, good for the whole week. First the Lowepro SlingShot 350 AW Backpack which has an all-weather cover and hypalon SlipLock loops on sale for $145 and with free shipping. There's enough room for a 15.4" laptop in there, but you probably won't be able to fit in a Lenovo Thinkpad W700... That's for the big stuff, how about the small cameras? There's the black Lowepro Slider 30, a padded pouch for small compact digital cameras. The price is $7 plus shipping.



You may find their TV commercials annoying, but their prices are not: Buy.com offers the folded optics Optio Z10 from Pentax for $140 with free shipping. If you are not familiar with this camera, be sure to check out the different reviews. Folded optics usually mean trade-offs and compromises... Meanwhile the gray Casio EX-Z1080 in on sale for $170 + free ship. And by "ship" we mean shipping, you don't get an actual ship :)

This post will be updated throughout the weekend as we find more interesting specials. Be sure to bookmark it for quick reference!
