I know this is not dvd related but it looked like a good deal. I just got an email for a canon digital rebel with lens, 1 gig cf card, tripod (pos that they run on sale for 8$), and a camera case for 800$. I think it is in store only.

Well that may be nice, but I think we need more info :slight_smile:

That page shows the details but not the free accesories. If you go to the main page
http://www.microcenter.com/
and look for the blue bar that says free accesory kit with purchase, it shows the deal right below it.
I didn’t originaly post this as it was an email and I didn’t know it could be viewed online. Seems like a pretty good price. Last I have seen they usally haven’t ran this camera more than 100$ off (not 200 off) and without the free accesories (the 1gig cf card is worth another 50-60$ alone (though they say 87$).
I wish I could afford one. I have been wanting one for a while to replace my aging 2mp and 3mp canon digitals.
