New Top Sellers: Discount impact, SuperZoom Wars, Pre-Orders

We have a new episode of the top selling digital cameras at Amazon, our snapshot-to-snapshot soap-opera in the digital camera marketplace.


Everybody loves a big discount
As you can see in the screenshot teaser above, the limited-time $400 special price of the K2000/K-m triplet has sky-rocketed the camera all the way up to the promised land. The price only lasted for a few hours, but it sold enough units to make this camera a top seller. And who can say no to a DSLR, lens, flash, and camera bag going for $400? Its current price is now at around $530, which is still not a bad price, but not the type of price that causes a feeding frenzy.

Top 25 Vitals
+ five DSLRs
+ four superzooms
+ two RAWsumers
+ three cameras under $100

SuperZoom Wars get fun again
With the two Canon leaders in stagnation, the Sony H50 and the Panasonic FZ28 are trying to launch a counter-offensive. In the sidelines of course are the newer models from each one of the three aforementioned manufacturers. The big question is, will Sony HX1's high-speed mode and new panorama feature be enough to make the camera popular among photographers who were not particularly interested in the previous H-series models?

Top Pre-Orders
1. Sony S950 black
2. Nikon L20 red
3. Nikon P90
4. Sony S950 silver
5. Canon SX200 IS black
6. Fuji F200 EXR
