With advances in imaging technology coming so fast, manufacturers of digital cameras are constantly offering new models. One way you can sometimes get a good digital camera deal is to buy a recently replaced model.
The key feature change is often resolution… and you may well be able to do quite well with the lower resolution of the old model. For example, if you don't print (or order prints) larger than 5” x 7”, a 3 or 4 MP (megapixel) model will provide ample resolution for your needs.
While not all retailers offer discounts on discontinued models, some do… especially those who sell online. When their stock of a discontinued model gets low, it often winds up in the clearance section at a substantial discount.
