With school just around the corner, it’s time to gather up the necessities for a fun year – computers, notebooks, and of course a camera. When it comes to finding the right camera at a great price, the TechHUB has got you covered with the Olympus FE-3010 bundle that includes the camera as well as a case and XD card for free.

The camera itself is small and light weight with a 2.7” LCD screen on the back. It features a 3X optical zoom, and more importantly shoots at 12 mega pixels – unlike many other cameras in this price range which only shoot 10 mega pixels. The camera also comes with Auto Intelligent Mode, a mode that automatically detects if you’re shooting portrait, landscape, outdoors, at night or a sporting event, and adjusts the picture settings accordingly. Face detection makes for better focus when taking pictures with friends, and if a picture doesn’t quite look right the camera comes with in-camera editing to do basic touch ups and cropping.

The TechHUB’s special price for the Olympus FE-3010 with case and 2GB XD card (worth $33.00) is $139.00. A similar product in the Cannon PowerShot A480 runs at $129 – comes with no case or SD card, and only shoots at 10 megapixels.

If you need a camera for the upcoming school year, the Olympus is definitely the cheaper alternative for you. However, if you still need to go cheaper, check out this bad boy.
