Is It Worth It?: Not only do you get a Panasonic Lumix G7 16-Megapixel Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless Camera, a Panasonic Lumix G Vario OIS 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens, and an Audio-Technica Camera-Mount Microphone, but you also get to save $249 on this Editors' Choice bundle.

Panasonic Waterproof CameraPanasonic DMC-TS30 4x Zoom Waterproof Camera
Store: Adorama
Price: $94.95 with free shipping
Lowest By: $14

Is It Worth It?: Even though summer is over (so the chance that you're going to be spontaneously pushed into a pool is slim), having a waterproof camera is still a good idea, for those times when you want to take a picture while crying. (Weddings, graduations, those commercials where the daughter comes home from school and surprised her parents by making crummy coffee, etc.) You won't cry over the price, though, as it's the best deal we've seen and a current low price by $14.

Available in in Black, Blue, or Red, it's also freeze-proof to 14°F, shock-proof up to 4.9 feet, and waterproof up to 26 feet. Features include a 4x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilization, 2.7" LCD, 720p video recording, and SDXC card slot.

ELPHRefurb Canon PowerShot ELPH 135 16MP Camera
Store: Canon
Price: $39.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $60

Is It Worth It?: At $60 under the lowest price we could find for a new one, this is truly a small price on a small camera. Pocket-sized and portable, you can alway have this on you as a backup for when your smartphone's battery dies. It's also the lowest price we've ever seen for this camera and $15 under our mention from last month. It features 8x optical zoom, 720p HD video, 2.7" LCD screen, and an SDXC card slot.

Note: A 1-year Canon warranty applies.

Canon Rebel T5TKRefurb Canon EOS Rebel T5 18-Megapixel Digital SLR Camera with Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens
Store: Canon
Price: $199.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $158

Is It Worth It?: One of Canon's "entry model" cameras, it's a great way to see if you like the whole "lens is separate from the camera body" thing, before you really dive into paying a lot for a DSLR. This Editors' Choice deal makes that entry-level price even better, because it's $10 under our mention of a refurb from October and the lowest total price we've seen. (It's also $158 under the best price we could find for a new unit.)

It features a 3" LCD with Live View, scene intelligent auto mode, 3 fps continuous shooting speed, 1080p video recording, mini HDMI output, SDXC card slot, and mini USB. A 1-year Canon warranty applies.
