    Fujifilm FinePix A500 - $66

    The Fujifilm FinePix A500 It’s hard to believe you can buy a decent camera for $66, but it’s true. Amazon.com is selling this camera “new” and it normally runs for $120 to $200, depending where you go. The FinePix A500 has an incredible amount of features at a very affordable price. It’s easy to learn and operate and offers a compact 5-megapixel snapshooter. For those who want good zoom quality, this is where the FinePix is rather limited. It gives you four scene modes and a 3x zoom range, not to mention a very small 1.8-inch LCD. Still, it’s a handy little camera you can take with you anywhere, weighing only 6.5-ounces and is only 1.1-inches thick – truly, a good choice for an attractive Christmas gift.
