Astounding Price for Full-Featured 3MP Camera! (Kodak DC4800) (UPDATED)|
(Friday, March 2, 2001 - 23:27 EST)
At the recently lowered price of $599, the Kodak DC4800 was a nice 3MP camera at a good price. At $499, it's an amazing deal! (Click on the "more" below for all the links!)
This is in the almost-too-good-to-be-true department! Kodak recently dropped the list price of its DC4800 digicam to $599, making it the cheapest fully-featured three megapixel camera on the market. Not content with that, they've just announced a mail-in $100 rebate coupon for it. Given the prices the camera is being sold at, this brings the net cost comfortably under $500 for a genuinely excellent 3 megapixel camera. (Read our review of this camera for all the details.) This is a really incredible deal on a very nice camera! Frankly, we thought $599 was a pretty good price for the DC4800: At $499, it's an outright steal.
This offer is valid for cameras bought in the US between March 2 (today) and May 5, 2001. (For our Canadian neighbors, our friend Steve Sanders of Steve's Digicams found this link to a $150 $CDN coupon, good for purchase made between March 4 and May 5.)
UPDATED 2001-03-16 21:30ET: A note from IR reader Charlie Wallace points out that this rebate is not valid for the DC4800EZ bundle, only for the original DC4800 bundle...
