This is a great deal (some have slapped QVC as not being so dependable, but others have said they've had no problem with them):
Olympus SZ-31 MR 16MP 24X Long Zoom Digital Camera with Software
Specs are below from the page. I'm definitely tempted to get one, especially with Discover's 5% back! Good only through tonight at 11:59 p.m. ET. Here's Amazon's link for comparison and CNET's 8.3/10 review.
Think thin, zoom in. With its ultra-long zoom capability, the sleek, easy-to-carry Olympus SZ-31 digital camera lets you capture great images and videos from almost any distance. You get high-tech, DSLR-quality features at an amazingly value--you simply don't want to pass this up!
What makes the SZ-31 digital camera so special? No matter how experienced you are in photography, this 16MP camera makes picture taking a breeze. Its 16 scene modes allow you to have the perfect lighting and situation for every shot, while the 24X optical zoom and 48X super resolution zoom means no distance is too far. Plus, 12 Magic Art Filter modes present plenty of options when you want to flaunt your creative side.
Is it easy for me to use? You'll take great shots straight away. Its CMOS sensor and SLR-quality TruePic Image Processors come together to bring you incredible low-light images while compensating for blur, shadows, and more. This means that even amateur photographers can capture the perfect picture. And because it's so slim and portable, you can easily bring it with you anytime you want to capture life's special moments.
Can I shoot movies with it? Yes! This camera offers amazingly crisp 1080P full HD video that you can shoot at the touch of a button. HDMI output and control makes playing back videos on an HDTV a breeze. And with multi-recording dual TruePic V technology, you can capture HD videos and take 16MP still images at the same time. Think of the possibilities!
What's in the box?
