Hereâ€™s whatâ€™s supposed to be another bit of good news on camera price reductions. Fujifilm USA says effective September 2, they have reduced the price of their SLR-style FinePix S700 digital camera to $230, according to a post at Imaging Insider.
But a quick check of some sellers of the camera indicates that the price of this piece of
junk camera has always been at that level, with some pricing it even lower.
Itâ€™s $204 at Beach Camera, $211.65 at Dell Small Business, $200 at J&R, $230 at TigerDirect and $212.43 at Amazon. At the time it was announced in Feb2007, its price was hovering around $220.
So what are we talking about here? Ya pullinâ€™ mah leg, baby?
