SAVE $12 – APC 2M/6.6-ft HDMI Pro Interconnects Cable – $7.97. This is handy if you’ve purchased a new HDTV with an HDMI interface. many new high-def cable boxes have HDMI connections for the highest quality sound and picture quality.

SAVE $100 – Canon HG10 High Definition Video Camcorder – $499.99: This is a refurbished item. This is a high definition video camcorder from Canon with an internal 40GB hard drive, a great 10x Optical Zoom (in my book, optical zoom is always better than digital zoom because it’s done in the lens and not in the camera’s processor). But if you like the digital zoom this unit has a 200x Digital Zoom range. Great for following tigers and lions on safari.
