DSLR DEALS

It was a mix of old and new goodies in the big box sale circulars this week, with Circuit City offering one DSLR deal on a brand new model, and one deal on an older high-performance model.

Nikon D80

Nikon D80


Circuit City has the Nikon D80 with an 18-135mm wide-range lens for $899.99.. Also get a free printer, DSLR book, leather album, and Firedog remote training with purchase.

Circuit City has the Canon Rebel XSi body with an 18-55mm image stabilized lens, a 75-300mm telephoto zoom lens and XSi starter kit – including a bag, battery and UV filter – for $929.97.

Just need one lens? Circuit City has the Canon XSi body with the 18-55mm lens for $729.99.

OUR TAKE: "...the XSi will unquestionably win converts to Canon with its (still) excellent AF system, super-smooth CMOS sensor with very impressive high ISO performance, and (for some users, at least) reasonably functional live view system." (DCR Review, 5/1/08)

Nikon Coolpix S210

Nikon Coolpix S210


OfficeMax has the Nikon Coolpix S210 for $159.99. Features include: 8 megapixels, 2.5" LCD, 3x optical zoom, and SD memory card compatiblity.

OUR TAKE: "While it's the low price leader of the new Nikon S series offerings, the S210 also promised 'high performance' and 'ease of operation.' It delivers a taste of the former and loads of the latter." (DCR Review, 4/17/08)

YOUR TAKE: "Compact, Easy to use and great photos. For the price this camera rocks!" (submitted by 2KuriousKat)
