Amazon Cyber Monday Sales Include Deals on Canon PowerShot Camera and Sony Vaio Laptop

Cyber Monday deals at Amazon have been rivaling Best Buy and Target, with several deals on cameras and laptops currently available.

For shoppers looking to upgrade their camera in time for all the photos they plan to take this upcoming Christmas, the Canon PowerShot S95 10 MP Digital Camera is available for only $291, which is over $100 off the regular price of $399.

Some of the features of the Canon PowerShot includes a 10.0-megapixel sensor, as well as a 720p HD video in stereo sound. The reviews for this camera are extremely favorable, with a 4.5 out of 5-star average from nearly 400 reviews.

The favorable reviews praised its image-taking quality, as well as the easy-to-navigate controls.

"If you're looking for a pocketable camera that has reasonably high quality images, lets you control aperture, speed and focus and shoot in RAW format, this is it. I bought mine as an upgrade from a previous small but versatile camera, a Canon Powershot S70," said one review.

Out of 17 1-star reviews, complaints were mostly about manufacturing flaws, such as the camera breaking down after a few weeks, which can happen from time to time with electronics, but may not be the norm. However, one unfavorable review said that the camera was a bit too large to fit in pants pockets and there were too many controls on the top of the camera.

"The top of the camera is quite crowded making it very difficult to use your left hand to stabilize the camera. If you scroll over the auto or force flash setting the will flash pop up so if you are used holding the camera there you will have to adjust your style," the review said.

Nonetheless, out of nearly 400 reviews, most were favorable and it appears this is a great camera for the price.

For people looking for a new laptop, the popular 17-inch Sony Vaio is available in the EJ2 Series for nearly $200 off the regular price at $613. The laptop has an Intel Core i5 processor and comes with 4 GB of RAM.

Being a new item, there are only four reviews for this laptop on Amazon, but they are all favorable, with each one praising the screen-quality, as well as the speed of its performance.
