Nikon D700 stock status page launched

With the Oscars and all being today, we issued a "life time achievement" award to the Nikon D700. We couldn't afford a gold statue, so instead we launched a D700 stock status page :)

As usual, you can find all the stock status pages towards the middle of the right sidebar of this blog, and also the main blog. You can also get a list of the stock status pages at the main blog at the stock status page archives.

Price-check: Canon S95 for $370~

After a quick price-check, it looks like the current price of the Canon S95 is around $370~ at Amazon by Amazon and Best Buy which also offers a free 4GB SDHC card and a photo book thing. Not the lowest prices as this camera appears to be popular so there is not as much incentive to discount it much. As you may recall, it almost crashed NewEgg during Black Friday Madness when it was offered for $300 as a true e-doorbuster - it sold out within a few seconds.
