Adobe Photoshop is great photo-editing software, but sometimes it can seem inaccessible due to its price and features. Photoshop Elements is a simpler, cheaper version that's beginner-friendly without skimping on the essentials. Newegg currently has a deal for the newest version for Windows and Mac that comes with free shipping. You also have the option for a downloadable version.

Thru Oct 07, 12:00AM

We recently reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II—the second generation of the already superb Sony Cyber-shot RX100, which is one of the best compact cameras on the market. While the update gives you WiFi connectivity and an improved sensor, if you want to save money, you can still get a great deal on its predecessor, which is part of a discounted bundle at BuyDig until October 7. Along with the camera, you get a Sony 64GB high-speed memory card, a copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements 11, and free overnight shipping.

Deal: Nikon 1 J2 at Amazon


regularly $549.00

Buy Now

The Nikon J-series is a tiny step up from the classic point-and-shoot. Customers get the feeling they're using a simple, $200 device, but are actually getting the image quality expected from a compact system camera. We reviewed the Nikon 1 J3 and found that while it had solid image quality, it also had useful shooting modes, accurate autofocus, and speedy continuous shooting. It's pricey though, so if you want the same experience, you might want to look into the Nikon 1 J2, which is on sale at Amazon in multiple colors for about $300 with free shipping.

It's pricey for some general consumers, but offers enough power and quality for enthusiasts and professionals. If this isn't for you, there are a number of other models on sale.

Deal: GoPro Hero3: Black Edition at Cabela's


regularly $399.00

Buy Now

GoPro is one of the leading manufacturers of adventure cams and the Hero3 lives up to the name in many ways. It has a slew of features including built-in WiFi, different frame rate options, and still photo modes. It's not the best adventure cam out there—it has disappointing battery life and isn't as durable as the competition—but it's lightweight and durable enough for most trips. The deal through Cabela's cuts the price to $329 and is eligible for free shipping and other rewards.

Groupon also provides free shipping and the option for free returns along with cutting 50 percent off the list price.

Thru Sep 29, 12:00AM

We gave the Panasonic Lumix FZ200 one of our "Best of the Year" awards in 2012 thanks to the lens being able to maintain a f/2.8 aperture across its long focal length. It doesn't have many features like GPS or built-in WiFi, but for just taking pictures and video, it does it well. Since the FZ200 is last year's model, you can now get it for $100 off the MSRP at Amazon, along with free shipping.

The Pentax K-30 is a weather-sealed, inexpensive, and basic DSLR that was released back in 2012, so the significant cut in price is standard. However, this bundle on sale through BuyDig for the camera in white comes with two kit lenses—an 18–55mm and 50–200mm zoom lens—and includes free shipping. Using the coupon code "LaborSaving15BG" at checkout takes an extra $15 off the list price and brings the final amount to $584.

Thru Sep 29, 12:00AM

The Panasonic DMC-G5 isn't the best compact system camera that the manufacturer has put out, but it has a lot of great qualities that might justify a purchase. It has some manual controls that other lower-end cameras don't have, along with honest color reproduction and the ability to take decent video. Its MSRP is high, but this deal through Amazon brings it down to $347 with free shipping, putting it more in an acceptable price range.

The good days won't last forever. While summer comes to a close and the cold, dark nights are just around the corner, you wonder if you'll see the sunlight ever again.

You can preserve the memories of summer with any of the cameras that are on sale this weekend during Labor Day. Some major retailers apply big discounts to top-notch cameras and camcorders, so it'll be one of the best times to get good deals before Black Friday.

Sony Alpha NEX-5R with 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6 kit lens

We gave the Sony NEX-5R an "Editor's Choice" award thanks to its surprisingly great image quality. Considering it's billed as an entry-level camera, it has strong noise reduction, resolution, and dynamic range scores. Our imaging experts are big fans of Sony's interchangeable lens cameras and were excited about this deal over at Adorama. Adding it to your shopping cart cuts the price down to $439 for the body plus the kit lens, along with free shipping.

Nikon D3200

You can do better than this DSLR if you want a full-frame camera, but the Nikon D3200 is easy to use, takes decent pictures with strong color accuracy thanks to its 24-megapixel sensor, and is light enough to not weigh you down on photo excursions. Now you can get it through Dell Home's labor day sale, which discounts the camera down to $549 with free shipping.


Canon Vixia HF R400

We haven't yet reviewed this camcorder, but the similar Canon Vixia HF R40 delivered great quality video for a low price, so it's safe to assume this deal isn't a bad one. It's on sale through Dell Home for $279 with free shipping. Sure it's only $20 in savings, but it has a 53x advanced zoom, making it good for capturing each moment as it happens.


Olympus PEN E-PL3

This Micro Four Thirds camera from Olympus is a couple years old at this point, but it's a unique option for people who want DSLR quality in a smaller package. We haven't reviewed this camera, but you can either spend close to $649 on a newer model or spend nearly $400 less on an older cousin like the E-PL3. Newegg newsletter subscribers can use the coupon code "EMCXMTX86," which drops the price down to $219 with free shipping.


Samsung NX2000

We haven't yet reviewed the NX2000, but we did test its sibling: The Samsung NX1000. We found that while it scored high in sharpness and image quality, it lagged in color accuracy. Both the NX1000 and the NX2000 have built-in WiFi that you can use to upload photos immediately to your favorite social networks and to the cloud. This deal through BuyDig also gets you a free 32GB SD memory card, Adobe Photoshop Elements, and Premiere Elements 11. Using the coupon code "NXSAVE100" cuts it to $497 with free shipping.
