If you’ve been looking for a high-end point-and-shoot camera, today would be an excellent day to hop on over to QVC, of all places. Today’s “Special Value” item is the Olympus SZ-31 MR 16MP 24x Long Zoom Digital Camera for just $200 (plus $9.72 S&H, hello arbitrary number). Still, for $210, you get a pretty fancy camera, so I went looking to see if this was really a good deal or not.
Well, the same camera is $400 at Amazon, plus it averages 4.5 stars in the reviews. Not bad.
I wouldn’t recommend this as an impulse purchase, nor is this a good “throw it in my purse” kind of camera, but if you’re in the market for a point-and-shoot that delivers quality similar to an SLR, this may be the deal for you.
