WOOT: $139 LUMIX DMC-ZS6 12MP 12x Optical Leica Zoom Lens (Score!)

[Update: the woot cameras are sold out - here's some comparable Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS6 cameras at Amazon]

Right now on woot.com:

Panasonic 12MP Digital Camera with Leica 12x Optical Zoom & HD Video


  • + $5 shipping
1 Panasonic DMC-ZS6 12MP - Leica Lens, 12x Optical Zoom (25-300mm), 3" LCD, HD Video + 2GB SD Card

I just dropped the hammer on one of these. I had been wanting the ZS7 for the GPS feature, but I like that this one uses Motion JPG instead of the AVCHD Lite video codec. And aside from those things, it's the same camera, and it's a very good one... and for any camera with this much optical zoom, the price is great - and they retail for alot more. Stoked to get this - I've needed a new pocket camera for a while, plus it should come just in time for the Steve Martin / Martin Short show in Chicago we're going to in a couple weeks (seats in the front row of the loge). Might get one of those Eye-Fi cards to make up for the lack of geotagging, too.

Also ordered a Wasabi Power Battery and Charger Kit for Panasonic, comes with two Lumix compatible batteries, a euro adapter, and a car charger for $29.99 + free shipping. Seemed like the way to go.
