There's just one shopping week left before Christmas, so if you want to get the best deals on cameras and get them shipped to you in time, you'll need to act pretty quickly. The biggest bargains are starting to disappear rapidly -- as you can see by our extensive list of expired deals -- but a few new ones keep popping up here and there as manufacturers and retailers make their final holiday sales push.

We understand it's time consuming and often frustrating to keep track of these camera deals yourself, which is why we here at Imaging Resource are happy to do some of the work for you. Bookmark this page for the coming week, and we'll continue to watch and post the best discounts and bundles we find on everything from DSLRs to pocket digicams. (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.

Not sure what to buy? Check out the Imaging Resource 2012 Holiday Gift Guide for help. Part One features cameras and lenses that we highly recommend. Part Two covers printers, scanners, accessories, books, software and more.
