Walmart: Kodak EasyShare Digital Camera for $119

Model: M580

Availability: While supplies last

Thoughts: When we looked at the Kodak EasyShare M580 just a few months ago, our reviewer praised its ability to take great photos and liked how easy it made uploading photos to social networks. He was also impressed with its sub-$200 price. Now, this 14-megapixel camera is available for more than $50 less than what it used to cost.

Costco: Kodak EasyShare for $80

Model: M575

Availability: While supplies last

Thoughts: This 14-megapixel camera features Kodak’s Share button, which lets you tag photos for uploading to sites such as Facebook, Flickr, and YouTube. It’s hard to find a good-quality digital camera for a price this low, but Kodak’s EasyShare M575 packs plenty of features. If you're not a Costco member, you'll have to pay a 5 percent surcharge, but the price will still be below the $100 you'd pay for this camera elsewhere.

BJs: Nikon Coolpix for $180

Model: L110

Availability: Price is good indefinitely for members; 5 percent nonmember surcharge is waived through December 20

Thoughts: The 12.1-megapixel Coolpix L110 features a 3-inch display, a 15X optical zoom, and the ability to capture video at 720p. Paying the 5 percent nonmember surcharge would push the price of this camera up, but the total would still be cheaper than the $200 it typically sells for. The Coolpix L110 isn’t a pocket-size camera, but if you can live with its slightly bulky body, this deal will save you some cash.

BJs: Nikon Digital SLR Camera With Lens Kit for $950

Model: D90

Availability: Price is good indefinitely for members; 5 percent nonmember surcharge is waived through December 20

Thoughts: Although $950 is a lot of money to spend, that's about $100 less than this camera typically costs. And that money gets you a whole lot of camera: The Nikon D90 was the first DSLR to offer video recording. It also offers a 12.3-megapixel resolution and a 5.8X optical zoom, and it includes a Nikkor 18-105mm VR Lens.

Buy.com: Canon PowerShot Digital Camera for $337

Model: S90

Availability: Ongoing

Thoughts: The Canon PowerShot S90 earned 4.5 stars (out of a possible 5) in our lab tests; we praised its compact, lightweight design and its outstanding image quality. This camera typically sells for $380 to $430.

Amazon.com: Casio High-Speed Digital Camera for $235

Model: EX-FH100

Availability: Ongoing

Thoughts: The 10.1-megapixel Casio Exilim EX-FH100 offers a 10X ultrawide-angle zoom and a 3-inch LCD. But its marquee feature is its High Speed Burst mode, which allows you to capture 40 images with one press of the shutter button.

Buy.com: Fujifilm FinePix Compact Camera for $220

Model: F300EXR

Availability: Ongoing

Thoughts: Just a few months ago, the 12-megapixel Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR sold for $330; now you can get it for almost one-third off. We like this camera's 15X-optical-zoom lens, and its 360-degree instant panorama mode is impressive.

Buy.com: Fujifilm FinePix Compact Camera for $170

Model: JZ500

Availability: Ongoing

Thoughts: This 14.1-megapixel camera offers a slim design for a pocket megazoom; it's one of the few such models that will actually fit in a pocket. The Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 also has a pet-detection mode that animal lovers will enjoy.

Best Buy: Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera for $319

Model: P100

Availability: Through December 18

Thoughts: The Nikon Coolpix P100 looks like an advanced camera, and it sports high-end features, such as a 26X-optical-zoom lens and full manual controls. Nevertheless, PCWorld's reviewer still found it easy to use, something that both advanced photographers and novices can appreciate.

Amazon: Canon PowerShot Digital Camera for $109

Model: SD1300-IS Digital ELPH

Availability: Ongoing

Thoughts: Amazon isn't the only retailer with a deal on this 12.1-megapixel model: Walmart is also offering this camera, which features a 4X optical zoom and a 2.7-inch LCD, for the same bargain price.

Best Buy: Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera for $90

Model: S3000

Availability: Through December 18

Thoughts: This 12-megapixel camera offers all the basics that you'll need to easily capture photos while on the go. And since it has a slim, compact design, it's easy to take anywhere.

Best Buy: Nikon Digital SLR Camera for $500

Model: D3000

Availability: Through December 18

Thoughts: The Nikon D3000 is designed as an entry-level DSLR, for photographers looking to step up from point-and-shoots to an advanced camera. This price makes taking that leap easier.

Best Buy: Fujifilm FinePix Digital Camera for $100

Model: JX260

Availability: Through December 18

Thoughts: This is a new camera, but Best Buy is already offering it at $60 off the list price. It features a 14-megapixel resolution, digital image stabilization to balance out shaky hands, and a panorama mode.

Walmart: Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera for $139

Model: S6000

Availability: Ongoing

Thoughts: Walmart is selling the 14-megapixel Coolpix S6000 for about $10 less than competing retailers are. And if you're in a shopping rush, you can order it for same-day pickup at many Walmart stores.

Target: Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera for $90

Model: S205

Availability: Temporary price cut

Thoughts: You could drive to the mall to pick up this digital camera--or you could avoid the crowds, stay at home, and take advantage of Target's online-only discount on this 12-megapixel model.
