While the best deal is on the purple model above, the Black/Green Playskool Show Cam is on sale as well for $32.

The Source Canada: $620 Off Canon EOS 60D 18-55 IS Kit – Now $680 (HOT!) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 11, 2015 at 3:43 PM

The Source Canada: $620 Off Canon EOS 60D 18 55 IS Kit   Now $680 (HOT!) (EXPIRED)

Need a spiffy camera? Then hurry on over to The Source because while quantities last, you can get the Canon EOS 60D 18-55 IS kit for just $679.96. It was originally priced at $1299.99, so that puts it at $620.03 off!

A word of warning: while writing this post, the camera seems to have gone in and out of stock frequently, so if you’re interested in taking advantage of this deal, do not wait!

If you click over to The Source’s site and don’t see the yellow “add to cart” button, then try refreshing the page. This little trick worked for me but once it’s completely sold out, then it probably won’t work anymore!

The EOS 60D camera is an 18MP digital SLR camera with built-in flash and features a 3″ LCD screen.

Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

This is not just an entry level camera and nears professional level quality. Check the independent reviews – awesome camera at an amazing price! Thank you, The Source!

Price comparing, I was surprised to find this same camera completely out of stock at Future Shop. Not only that, but it was also more expensive as it was on final clearance for $749.97. Even there though, reviews are fantastic: 20 reviewers gave this camera an average rating of 4.3/5 stars — that’s pretty fantastic! Here’s one such review:

I bought this camera a couple of years ago and i started out as someone with very little camera knowledge and now I can say i take some pretty good shots with this camera. The 18-200 that came with camera is a good all rounder lens but not great in low light condition. I added a 16-35 f/2.8 and this camera performed much better in low light. Though i would love to upgrade to 6D or maybe even a 5D mkIII, but for now, this camera does everything that i need it for. Not a great professional tool but very good for an amateur photographer. Thanx.

With regards to shipping, you have two choices. You can either have your camera shipped to your local The Source store for free or you can enter the Source coupon code TS4411 at checkout to get free shipping. Make sure to enter the code if you would prefer to have the camera shipped straight to your door because if you don’t, a $4.99 fee will apply.

The Source: Fujifilm JX660 Camera Only $65 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 1, 2015 at 6:30 PM

The Source: Fujifilm JX660 Camera Only $65 & Free Shipping

The Source Canada is offering the basic Fujifilm JX660 16 MP Digital Camera for only $64.99 with free shipping. After this promotional period, the cost of the camera will go up to $129.99.

I consider this a basic camera at a good price. While many people are not buying cameras as they are built into their smart phones, I still think a dedicated camera is a good choice. If your kids are into photography, it is far better to give them a $65 camera than a $650 smart phone. If they drop the camera in water, off a cliff, in the toilet, or smear it with peanut butter and try to feed it to the dog – you are not going to mind as much with a $65 item. In addition, cameras are quite resilient whereas when I drop my smart phone a couple feet, it threatens to shatter.

When price comparing this unit, I discovered this is a bit of an older model that many stores no longer have in stock. However, here are the prices from other retailers in Canada:

  • $89.95 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $89.95 @ Future Shop Canada (OOS)
  • $90.99 + $12.06 shipping @ (OOS)
  • $94.99 @ (OOS)

Secondary sellers are trying to sell these cameras for $111 or more at It is easy to see that The Source Canada has the best price by nearly $35.

The Fujifilm JX660 camera has all you need for a simple but useful camera. The 16MP sensor captures good quality images. For video, enjoy HD 720p recording. There is a dedicated movie recording button and you can edit the videos as well (trimming, joining). With 5x optical zoom, you will get closer to your subject without having to shove the camera right up close.

In addition, see everything through a large 2.7″ monitor. I find monitor size integral to good quality images. If I cannot see the picture I am shooting, my photo composition will suffer. Even the width of a hair of movement can turn a good quality picture into so-so if your lighting is not right or you catch the edge of something you do not want in your picture.

This camera comes with a rechargeable lithium ion battery that charges through a USB cable. A two-year warranty from FUJI will give you peace of mind.

As the camera retails for over $20, free shipping to your home is included.

Save 50% On The Fujifilm EF20 TTL Flash Was $200 | Now $98 @ (Expired)

Posted by on February 9, 2015 at 2:40 PM

Save 50% On The Fujifilm EF20 TTL Flash Was $200 | Now $98 @ (Expired)

Photography lovers can save 50% on the The Fujifilm EF20 TTL Flash. This flash was $200 but is now only $98 @ Free shipping with no minimum is included with all orders at Walmart Canada.

I have often considered upgrading my photography equipment to the next level. I currently have a glorified point and shoot that is a step above an iPhone. I like to take pictures of the snow, my garden, my kid and all of the other fun adventures we have as a family traveling. I find that in the wintertime I can never have enough light inside for my pictures. My living room has currently five different light sources to attempt to curb this issue so I do not miss memories.  I still end up with a few dark pictures.

Maybe it is time I invest in something a little more efficient. Check out the Fujifilm EF20 TTL Flash that was $200 and is now only $98. This flash has a neat little design that allows it to fold back into itself. The description mentions that it fits easily into a pocket. I know I am no pro, so a beginner slim fit flash is a good option for me. This flash is powered from 2 AA batteries and has a recharge time of four seconds. While not instant, that is a quick turnaround to ensure you do not miss the shot.

This flash is compatible with the following camera models. The list is pretty long!:

  • FinePix SL280
  • SL240
  • SL1000
  • HS30EXR
  • HS25EXR
  • HS20EXR
  • HS35EXR
  • HS50EXR
  • X10
  • X20
  • X-M1
  • X-E1
  • X-Pro-1
  • X100
  • X100S

Checking around the web at the competitor’s prices, this flash is a great deal. Whether you are buying from a bigger retailer or a retailer that tailors to photographers, Walmart has the winning price with this flash.

  • $174 @
  • $179 @ Camera Canada
  • $189 @ Aden Camera
  • $199 @ The Source

Reviews are good everywhere I price checked this flash. Most people are rating it five stars and say it is perfect for the beginner or intermediate photographer on the go. Here is one reviewer on who seems pretty happy.

Save 50% On The Fujifilm EF20 TTL Flash Was $200 | Now $98 @ (Expired)

If you are considering a flash for your Fuji Camera, or considering buying one of the Fuji cameras on the list, I would grab this flash. It is so useful to have a little extra light when you need it. I hate when I miss the shot because it was just too dark. In addition, with the small size of this flash you do not need to reconsider your whole camera bag setup. The flash can just slip right in your pocket and your camera can go around your neck.

Bargainmoosers, are there any photography accessories you have been eyeing?

The Source: $35 Off Sony Cyber-shot Camera – Now $65

Posted by on December 30, 2014 at 12:42 PM

The Source: $35 Off Sony Cyber shot Camera   Now $65

The Source Canada currently has the best price on a simple point and shoot Sony Cyber-shot DSCW800B Digital Camera. Originally $99.99, purchase the camera for just $64.99 with free shipping (on orders over $25).

While this camera is on sale at many places, The Source does have the best price. Here are the price comparisons I dug up to ensure that you are getting the best deal.

  • $69.55 @ Staples Canada (in-store only)
  • $69.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $75.99 @ Sony Canada

Amazon Canada did not have the camera in stock themselves, but a secondary seller was selling it for $99.99. I also did find the camera ‘cheaper’ at MTC Factory Outlet but it was refurbished, cost $59.99, and you would have to pay for shipping on top of that so it really wasn’t a better deal. Overall, The Source has the best price especially with free shipping.

This camera comes fully loaded with 20.1MP, 5x Optical Zoom, 10x Digital Zoom, 720 HD Video, and a 2.7″ LCD Screen. Your camera also comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery so there is no need to go out and purchase a pack or two of batteries to keep your camera going. Internal memory, as per usual, is quite small so you will need to purchase an SD card if you do not already have one.

I like the shooting features on this camera; it reminds me of my DSLR. You can shoot pictures in high sensitivity, night scene, night portrait, landscape, portrait, beach, snow, gourmet, or pet mode. I have to admit, while the first few shooting modes are quite common, the last few are rather different. I have never heard of gourmet or pet mode before.

The reviews are very positive for this little camera:

I had been searching for a good little camera for a decent price and bought this camera. I got it on sale and it was the best purchase I have made in a long time The Source: $35 Off Sony Cyber shot Camera   Now $65 Pictures are clear and it loads crazy fast.

I remember when you could rarely find a decent point and shoot digital camera for under $100. The Sony Cyber-shot is an amazingly camera that gives you a lot of clarity, depth, and richness for such a small unit.

Samsung Wi-Fi 16.2MP Camera $79.99 @ Future Shop (Save $70) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 12, 2014 at 3:08 PM

Samsung Wi Fi 16.2MP Camera $79.99 @ Future Shop (Save $70) (EXPIRED)

As part of Future Shop’s 12 days of deals they are featuring a Samsung EC-WB35FZBPBCA Wi-Fi 16.2MP 12x Optical Zoom Digital Camera for just $79.99 with free shipping. You save $70 and score a good camera for a great price.

I expected Best Buy to price match Future Shop as they are sister stores. However, that is just not happening on this deal. Check out the price comparisons below.

  • $99.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $149.99 @ Henry’s Canada
  • $157.63 @ Amazon Canada (secondary seller)
  • $95.97 US @

The price at Future Shop even beats the price of the US giant if we lived in the USA and could get it shipped free from them. This is the best deal for this camera that I have found on the net. The camera features:

  • 16.2-Megapixel CCD Sensor
  • 2.7-Inch Display
  • 12x Zoom
  • Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • 720p HD-quality MPEG video
  • Live Panorama mode

This camera really packs many features into its small body. I love the HD video feature. Though I do not record many videos, there are some times when on vacation that only a video would really capture the moment. I regret not using that feature more on my camera. The large display helps you get a sense of what your picture will look like printed out. I find a large display very important for taking good quality pictures the first time. The 16.2 MP and 12x zoom are going to be amazing and really will show you why having a camera in addition to your phone is worthwhile. is a great place to look at reviews like this one:

Really like the camera, fits in your pocket and give excellent pictures. Used on trip to San Juan and loved it, I took my larger camera but found I was using the Samsung more because I could send pictures to my phone and text to friends. Really nice purchase.

That is another feature I would die to have on my DSLR – Wi-fi. It drives me insane that I cannot just send images once I take them. Instead, I have to pop out the SD card, load them onto my computer, and then upload them to an email or Facebook. This camera looks awesome.

Henry’s Canada: Panasonic Lumix FZ200 Was $530 | Now $400 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 9, 2014 at 11:32 AM

Henrys Canada: Panasonic Lumix FZ200 Was $530 | Now $400 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

There are quite a few stores out there having days of deals sales in anticipation of the Christmas rush. Henry’s is one of those stores and today’s deal is sweet! Get $153.02 off the Panasonic FZ200 12MP camera with a 16 GB card. Originally $553.01, and now $399.99, you’ll also get free shipping.

If you’ve got someone’s wish list and on it is a new camera, this is an inexpensive way to fulfill that wish. My son wants a camera, although I think he is just a tad too young for it. I think he would treat it nicely, but I worry about his brothers fooling around with it if he doesn’t put it away. I may reconsider later today and hope the deal is still on, as this is the right price point that I’d like to spend on his gift.

I can let you know all the nitty gritty about this camera, which includes 12.1MP, 12GB SDHC card, 24x optical zoom, 12fps burst rate, full 1080/60p HD video and F2.8 aperture across entire zoom range.

If none of that really means anything to you, you can check out some of the reviews, I found on Amazon:

This camera is just as advertised ! Takes fantastic photos with virtually no lag time. My husband loves his Xmas gift!

This model has a nice long lens and is relatively light.

Of course I also shopped around, to ensure that this is the best deal out there and found that it was. Amazon sells this camera for $523; Vistek sells it for $529 and London Drugs sells it for $529.

I bought my newest camera from Henry’s and found the customer service to be great. I actually have to take mine back in as it is having a few issues, but that could be user error. I’m hoping the Henry’s associates will help me out.

I wouldn’t wait too long, as there are limited amounts of this camera available.

Canon Canada: EOS Rebel T3 with Lens & Kit Only $299 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 24, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Canon Canada: EOS Rebel T3 with Lens & Kit Only $299 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Canon Canada has discounted the EOS Rebel T3 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm DC III lens to $299 with free shipping just because of box damage. This camera retails upwards of $379 at other retailers.

This camera has been down to this price before, but that was way back in March as you can see from Eva’s post. Like last time, quantities are limited. This camera comes with a kit so you are not left out in the cold with your camera body and lens. You will also receive a battery, battery charger, eyecup, wide strap, and interface cable.

I price compared this camera with Canadian competitors. Here is what the camera would cost you if you bought it at any of these fine retailers:

  • $379.98 @ Walmart Canada
  • $449 @ Newegg Canada
  • $446 @ Amazon Canada
  • $399.99 @ Dell Canada

As you can see, you are saving at least $80 off Walmart’s price and maybe even more. It is not clear if Walmart’s camera comes with the kit so you are potentially getting a better deal at Canon. Either way, this is a very nice sale. Even though the box is damaged, the camera itself is in new condition and still comes with the full manufacturer’s warranty.

If you pick up some accessories to go with your camera, then you can use coupon code CANON15ACC to receive 15% off the accessories. You might want to buy a case for your new DSLR as it can be somewhat awkward just carrying it around your neck all the time. In addition, you do not want to scratch up the lens or accidentally drop your camera. You may also want an extra battery for longer journeys where you might not have access to power. We had an extra battery for our previous DSLR and it was a welcome addition to our trip to Iceland. Twelve-hour day trips did not afford time to recharge a battery.

While everyone has a camera in their phone these days, I truly believe in getting a good quality camera for those special moments. A DSLR can capture detail, clarity, and colour that your phone camera cannot. A DSLR camera is also amazing for action shots where other cameras will leave you with blurry images.

The Source Canada: Liquid Image HD320 Scuba Series Underwater Digital Camera Mask (Refurbished) | Was $250 Now $70

Oh hey there, deal hunters! The Source currently has an intriguing deal on a very interesting item today. It’s for a refurbished Liquid Image HD320 Scuba Series Underwater Digital Camera Mask, which you can now buy for just $69.99! This is one super sweet deal, since this product typically retails for $249.95 US at Point Of View Cameras, and a used pair is currently selling for $199 on Amazon! You’ll also get free shipping with your order – very nice!

This Liquid Image HD320 Scuba Series Underwater Digital Camera Mask has some really cool features! While you’re underwater with this specialized digital camera mask, you can enjoy up to a 1280 x 720 video resolution, and get up to 30fps with the integrated HD-SHQ video mode. It has a 2G2P fixed camera lens with shutter speeds of 1/4 to 1/1000 seconds, and also has a 35m (115 feet) depth rating. Best of all, you can store up to 36,800 pictures or 960 minutes of video.

This is the ultimate item to bring with you on your vacation – especially if you plan to swim near some coral reefs! Since you literally don’t have to hold anything, you can conveniently get some intimate photos and videos of your underwater journeys without any issues – I know the feeling, since I’ve used disposable underwater cameras before. While they’re still really cool devices, I found it awkward to hold on to the camera safely while I tried to swim. This Liquid Image HD320 Scuba Series Underwater Digital Camera Mask makes it easy for you to do, which is always nice!

I’ve included a brief review of this Liquid Image HD320 Scuba Series Underwater Digital Camera Mask from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

This mask was easy to operate and performed perfectly. Not only were the pictures and video extremely sharp, but in the video mode it records audio as well.

Like most clearance deals at The Source, this likely won’t be around for very long, so get it now! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

The Source Canada: Open Box Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16 MP Camera | Was $200 Now $80

Good evening, my fellow deal hunters! The Source currently slashed the price on their open-box Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera – normally selling for $199.99, you can now purchase this easy-to-use digital camera for $79.96! Your order will also qualify for free shipping! That’s always a nice bonus, right?

This Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera is loaded with great features – it has a 16mp 1/2.3-inch ccd sensor with a primary colour filter, it can film 720p hd videos, has an hdmi (mini) port, accepts sd/sdhc cards, and has a 30x wide angle optical zoom. This is a great camera for this price!

I’m not entirely satisfied with the camera on my cell phone, so I think it’s important to still have a decent digital camera that you can use during special events. When you’re going to be at a memorable get together with friends or your family, a sports event, or a wedding, you’ll want to use a camera that you can rely on. Plus, you’ll want to be able to take high-quality pictures, and you can certainly do that with this Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera.

On Amazon, this Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera costs $169.99. If you were to purchase this camera from WalMart’s American website, it would cost you $199 US. I’ve listed an informative review of this camera from a customer of The Source below:

A little below in features of the newest cameras. Such as video quality at 720 not 1080. Zoom is not as powerful as newer models.
But it is below half the price of the current models out there and takes excellent quality pictures.

If you want to save some cash on a convenient 16MP camera that can also take videos, then you should definitely check out this deal before it’s gone. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

The Source Canada: Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera (Open Box) | Was $200 Now $100 (EXPIRED)

Good morning, Bargainmoosers! This is a notable deal for a nice high quality camera at The Source. For a limited time, you can get a Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera (open box item) for $99.96. The regular price of this Fujifilm camera is $199.99. Plus, you’ll also qualify for free shipping!

Some of the features of this Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera include a 16mp 1/2.3-Inch ccd sensor, 30x wide angle optical zoom, a 3.0 inch lcd screen, and a 720p HDMI (mini) port so you can check out your videos and photos on the big screen!

Even though many of us already have decent cameras built into our cell phones nowadays, that doesn’t mean that it should be the only camera that we own. On special occasions like weddings, special birthday parties and memorable nights out on the town, would you prefer to take pictures that were 5 MP in quality, or 16 MP in quality like this Fujifilm camera has?

Plus, once you see how versatile this camera is, you’ll never go back to using your cell phone camera (unless you see something hilarious while you’re on your way home from work). Fujifilm has been a reputable name in the camera industry for many years, so this isn’t just some cheap digital camera that you’d order from China on Ebay – it’s a high quality camera that you can get for a more affordable price!

On Amazon, this Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera costs $169.99, and it’s $199 US at WalMart (they are no longer in stock). I’ve included a snippet of a review from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

This camera was attractively priced for the large number of features it contains. It will take me a while to use them all! I’ve done a bit of experimenting in the short time I’ve had it, and it takes nice snapshots and is as easy to use and to learn as any comparable camera. I look forward to using and enjoying this camera for a very long time to come.

Like many deals for open box items at The Source, this likely won’t remain in stock for very long. The price will also be going up before midnight tonight, so now’s your chance to nab it for $100! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

The Source Canada: Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS Now $99.96

The Source Canada has a good deal on the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS Camera. Originally $209.99, the camera is now on clearance for $99.96.

This camera is just on clearance, and does not appear to be an open box or refurbished model. I did some price comparing to ensure you are getting the best deal. I found the camera, in various colours, for the following prices. The same model is $136.26 @, $119.97 at Future Shop (sold out), $149.95 @ Newegg and $151.13 at Hookbag. The Source Canada’s price is the best out there currently.

The camera features:

  • 16.0 MP
  • 8x Optical Zoom(4x digital zoom as well)
  • 28mm Wide-Angle Lens
  • 720p HD Video Recording

It also has a 3.0″ screen to help you see your photos better and help you take better photos. The built in Wi-fi allows you to transfer wirelessly the photos from your phone to your computer. The camera also comes with a rechargeable battery, a recharger, and it appears to come with a case as well if the photos are any indication (as the text does not mention it).

This is a good camera for an affordable price. 16MP will give you good quality images and the 8x optical zoom will bring you in close enough to capture them. The 720DH video recording and the Wi-fi are bonus selling points in my book. I am not much for taking videos, but they often capture a mood or even far better than photos can. I certainly like having that built into my camera. It is also very convenient not to have to connect your camera to your computer each time you want to share pictures. I would love that feature on my camera.

Here is one review of the camera of off Amazon:

Great camera. I love it. The pictures are incredible and clear resolution at 16MP. I also have a Canon T3i and travel alot. But during travels, the size of the Canon T3i makes it very impractical and heavy. So the ELPH 130 is my travel camera. It goes on my hip and takes great pictures. I especially love the CMOS capability, which makes it a very nice camera for close quarters and limited lighting. I strongly recommend this camera to anyone looking to buy a camera that takes professional quality pictures at a fraction of the cost of a large professional camera.

There are tons of reviews of this camera on Amazon Canada, I suggest reading a few to get a good idea of what it does and it does not do. This camera is on sale in grey.

The Source Canada Overstock Sale: $140 Off Nikon CoolPix S9400 Camera – Now $140

The Source Canada Overstock Sale: $140 Off Nikon CoolPix S9400 Camera   Now $140

The Source’s Overstock Sale is now on with up to 60% off plenty of electronics and among these, I found the Nikon CoolPix S9400 camera on sale for just $140.03, down from an original price of $299.99 (53% off).

The CoolPix S9400 digital camera features the following specs:

  • 18.1 MP
  • 4x digital/ 18x optical zoom range
  • CMOS sensor
  • 3.0″ LCD screen
  • 65MB built-in memory
  • Li-ion battery good for about 230 still shots

Reviews are mixed on this camera but if you’re not a photography pro and are looking for a relatively simple and straightforward digital camera to use, then this nifty camera may just be the one for you. On The Source’s page, there are only six reviews with a total of 3.2 stars out of 5, which definitely doesn’t paint the most accurate picture with regards to this camera’s performance because they’re very varied all the way from this 5 stars out of 5 review:

18.1 megapixels, fantastic zoom, and a great price. Small and compact. What more could you ask for?

All the way to this 1 star review:

Received the camera yesterday: can’t charge the battery. And according to the service rep, buying and external charger and/or a new battery might do the trick. I would think Nikon could sell cameras that work out of the box. Very disappointed . Won’t buy a Nikon product any time soon.

But to be fair, that latter review seems like a fluke and one that can happen with any gadget, even the upcoming iPhone 6! The Source Canada Overstock Sale: $140 Off Nikon CoolPix S9400 Camera   Now $140

If you want to skip paying the $4.99 flat shipping rate, then you can ship this camera or any other order straight to your nearest The Source store instead. The way I see it though is that compared to the cost of gas that it might take you or even the bus fare (+ your time), it might just be easier to have it shipped straight to your door. Not to mention the fact that I had an order shipped to my nearest The Source store last Christmas and it took some time for it to arrive, or for them to even call me even though the majority of my order had been sitting at their store for a couple of days already when I checked in. I’m sure it’s different for every store but that’s just my experience.

This camera is one of many other overstock deals and they are all definitely worth a look but keep in mind that some have been reduced due to damage to the box. In these cases, you can rest assured that the products are sure to have been inspected and they will more than likely be completely fine! Other awesome discounts include but are not limited to:
