Believe it or not, there are still great bargains to be had on digital cameras -- even though the two big shopping holidays are now in our rear mirrors. You can find deals ranging from nice discounts ($50 to $100 off, typically) on some of the hottest pocket cameras and DSLRs, to outright steals on older, still-excellent models.

We here at Imaging Resource are keeping our eyes open for the best deals, and keeping track of them for you right here, all in one place. (Note: we're only listing deals for cameras we've reviewed or would recommend to our friends, family members and, of course, our readers.)

The following holiday shopping deals are sorted from the most recent at the top to those that have expired at the bottom. We've also provided links to our in-depth reviews and previews of the cameras on sale to help you identify the biggest savings:

If one of these cameras is on your must-have list, don't hesitate -- as Christmas inches closer, deals will disappear fast. And if none of these tickle your fancy, be sure to check back often. We'll be updating the deals page regularly as we find new deals and expire out-of-date ones.
