My Canon PowerShot SX110IS ran through AA batteries at a slow rate.. But still were inconvenient when they did run out.

That is, until I started buying the Ultimate Lithium batteries. Don't let those prices scare you, I spent exactly $9.04 at Target for a 4 pack.. And they last months. Well, the 4 pack does.

Then, when they stop running the camera, they make AWESOME back up batteries for our remotes and my laptop wireless mouse. Worth the extra 3 bucks, IMO.

That's the same camera IronMan has, I think.

OK-- I did the unthinkable, but since it's not for ME (lol) I'm giving myself a waiver.

I investigated Wal Mart. I ALSO investigated the GREEN BAY walmart, as what good does it do to have the online deal (which is MOST of them, btw)

IN STORE DEAL IN STOCK at GREEN BAY STORE

Starting 2 hours and 17 minutes ago (From Green Bay Walmart flyer)

Package deal :

Samsung 12.2 megapixel
5x optical zoom
Camera case
2 gig card

99.99

Camera ALONE regularly 149.99

Walmart

The package deal is on page 2 of the flyer


The camera details:

Samsung SL502


THAT is a great box store deal, and you would have it in time for the game.

The battery is rechargeable. Sorry. (Gimme a break, I'm kiddin' ya, and this was a pain in my ass to research, lol)

That's the one I liked the most, in my price range, but it was at WalMart and I'm not too fond of buying electronics there. I have, but just uneasy. I also get a 10% discount on items there too. I know someone who works there.


Thank you for the research. I really liked that camera when I was playing with it earlier.

I only went for the best one before interchangeable lens...It needed action shots something like 20 shots n 2 seconds for soccer games, long video for kids concerts and excellent night time for concerts


If you recall my Packer Viking pics, I was in north endzone and zoomed into south endzone at Woodson and you could see his 6 pack

But again the camera I had before this one was a GREAT one...

I agree with the rechargeable battery..

You can find a GREAT dig cam for 100 bucks EASILY...

A Kodak Easy Share...Great battery life they were rechargeable, would hold a charge for HOURS...Would do videos and shots at concerts and still have power..

for what you want it for I would say anything in the 3-5 zoom, and 9 or 10pi xshould be enough..

Can you get one that uses either rechareable or regular batteries?
That way, in a pinch, you can run to the store and buy some if your rechargeable dies.
I still shoot the old 35mm SLR.
If you can afford one that you can change lenses on, like Dod said, thats the best. Gives you alot more possibilities.
But for $100, i bet you won't get alot nowadays.

It is absolutely incredible what you get for that 100. Alan

I was looking at the specs on my 4 year old digital camera ...

Which is now in my trash can.

100 bucks then. I won't go into it all, but I cannot but wonder how awesome the 100. camera will be 4 years from now.

How quickly do they become obsolete? My camera arrived Tuesday. If Zero takes my advice, he will have gotten .2 more megapixels and 1 more x of optical zoom for 2 dollars and change more. In 4 days. lol

Shit.

Hit us with the list of stores and your "I'm squealing at the the out-the door number cash layout wise)

They listed it as in stock at 2:30 AM -- I sensed that as a possibility.

Best buy on Pilgram way. Pages 20-22 Some bundles. Not QUITE as good as that Wal-Mart deal, but close. I know you hate best buy, but you are the one that procrastinated, lol You are taking that ticket? Who is doin' the "chat" ?


Dhazer would be my vote

Target&lt;------No good. They have a couple, but you could do better at Best Buy or Wal Mart

I have a headache. Someone else's turn, lol. I WAS looking at the local ads for zip code 54301, which got me all the Green Bay stores.

Looks to me like Best Buy, Zero. Since you have been to Wal Mart a couple of times, I think you will be able to do some good comparisons.

IronMan,

No one is saying (at least not me) that Wal-Mart doesn't sell anything worth a damn. I'm simply saying that I dislike Wal-Mart and would encourage anyone to spend their money elsewhere, especially with electronics. I'm not going to go into why I dislike Wal-Mart, but that's why I said "ewww."

I will try to spend my money almost anywhere else except Wal-Mart at all times, for anything. Although sometimes it is a necessary evil.
