The majority of that looks like a press release to me... :(

From what I can tell, only the first sentence serves as a review (and only a review of its features at that).

Thanks for this great post. I still have to decide which camera I am going to try to get on BF. I have never had a digital camera and DH has been really wanting to get one before the baby comes (due 2/7/6) so I thought Santa might put it under the tree for the whole family if he can find a deal on one.

How do you guys find out before the ads are in, what Best Buy will have. I had asked them, and they told me the flyers for the ad are under a sealed box. Do you really think they will have the Kodak 360 for 129. Judy

I need to know which is the better buy. The HP Photosmart from WM or the Kodak on sale @WM.com for 98.84, or the HP Photosmart E217 at Staples for 79.98? I know nothing about them so any help would be appreciated. TIA!

Its 6mp with 3x optical zoom. It can be had for $240 so its about $40 cheaper on BF. I think the Canon A520 is a better option unless you need the extra 2mp, which most people do not.

The scans are real, they will have the C350 for $130.

Agreed. If you plan on PRINTING most of your pictures then higher MP is better.

Otherwise the Canon PowerShot A520 is a superior digicam:

The Kodak C360 for $129 would be a steal. On sale at Walmart for $244.54 right now according to Steve's Digicam.
If that price is right I will be in line as early as it takes. :)

Do you plan to try to PM at WM? Because, from what I can see, the deal is at BB and not WM.

Then why not buy it today, Saturday, Nov 12, at Officemax? Avoid the long lines and get a free 256MB card instead of 128 for the same price.
I don't have enough posts to post a link :mad:
I know this A520 was on sale from dell for $135 within the last month.

Well, I don't know your budget. Always get Kodak over HP though. If you can, check out a Canon in your budget.

Depends what size you print them out at. If you're printing 4" x 6" prints, get the Canon A520. It can be had now for $155 from newegg.com. This is $45 cheaper than any store on BF.

Kodak Z760 Digital Camera with Docking Cradle - $199.00 Does anyone know anything about this camera?


I personally own the Kodak Z740, which is a step below. Mine is 5mp and I think the Z760 is 6pm. It's a more professional looking camera and you can get quite a few lens adapters. The buttons and features on it are VERY easy to use. Also it fits great in your hand. The only downside (which I don't mind at all) it's a tad heavier than most digital cameras.

I absolutely LOVE my camera. I got it a while back for $379, it wasn't on sale, but it did come with the printer dock.
That's a great price. I would definitely buy it again.
