Ready to save some cash on your tech buys? Then you've come to the right place. Our friends at sister site gdgt track price drops on thousands of products every day, and twice a week they feature some of the best deals they've found right here. But act fast! Many of these are limited-time offers, and won't last long.
Today's top deals include a pair of well-regarded cameras that help casual photographers get professional-looking pictures with ease. The Fujifilm FinePix JX650 is a bargain-basement option, while those looking to spend (and receive) a bit more can opt for the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX80. Hoping to grab one or the other?

What makes a bridge cam? You can use the lens length as a general rule of thumb -- if it's long enough to form a bridge, that model qualifies (full disclosure: we made that bit up, but perhaps it'll stick). Fujifilm's got a few such devices on the CES shelf, and we've dropped by to check them out. At the high end, you'll find the FinePix HS50EXR, which includes a brand new 16-megapixel 1/2-inch EXR CMOS II sensor with phase-detection focusing and an autofocus speed of 0.05 second, along with a 42x (24-1000mm) f/2.8-5.6 manual zoom lens. Next up, we have the SL1000, with its 16-megapixel 1/2.3-inch BSI CMOS sensor and 50x (24-1200mm) f/2.9-5.6 optical zoom lens, followed by the S8300, with a 16-megapixel 1/2.3-inch BSI CMOS sensor and 42x (24-1008mm) f/2.9-6.5 lens. All three are expected to ship in March, with the HS50EXR priced at $550, the SL1000 at $400 and the S8300 running you $310. You can find a few more details (along with a collection of similar models) in our announcement post, but what you're likely really after is a gallery of hands-on shots -- that's waiting just below.

It was only a matter of time before Fujifilm's latest ruggedized shooter, the FinePix XP170, made a quick stop by the FCC offices and, well, it's about that time. The filings don't reveal many details we didn't already know, meaning you're still getting those WiFi sharing features to Android / iOS and that 14-megapixel CMOS sensor with 1080p video capabilities to take on your adventures. At this rate it's safe to say that you better have those 280 bucks ready, as this rugged Fuji's next stop is sure to be the retail shelves. We don't think FCC chairman, Julius Genachowski, would mind you peeking at the black and white files, so hit the source link below if you're interested in doing so.Permalink | | Email this | Comments
