Capture the best (the ugly sweater holiday party) and worst (the fruitcake, of course) moments of the upcoming holiday season with the help of a new camera. These deals on digital cameras deliver great-looking photos without over-exposing your budget. But if these setups aren't quite right, check out our other digital camera deals for more.

  1. Nikon 1 V1 10.1-Megapixel Mirrorless Digital Camera bundled with the Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens
    Store: B&H Photo-Video
    Price: $299 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $41
    Expires: December 31

    Is It Worth It? This DSLR-like camera "offers a combination of speed, portability and image quality that should easily satisfy its primary target consumers," according to Photography Blog. And it does it all for $299: $50 under our mention from three days ago and the lowest total price we've ever seen for this camera. It also features a 3" LCD, shooting modes from 5fps up to 60fps, 1080p video recording, USB connectivity, simultaneous movie and photo capture, and more.

  2. Pentax Q 12.4-Megapixel Mirrorless Lens Digital Camera bundled with the Pentax 5-15mm f/2.8-4.5 Zoom Lens
    Store: newegg
    Price: $279.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $67

    Is It Worth It?: At $19 under our mention of two weeks ago, this Editors' Choice camera is among the world's smallest and lightest digital interchangeable lens cameras, according to Digital Photography Review. It also features a "newly adopted CMOS image sensor and an upgraded algorithm to provide users with improved performance, including higher quality images and faster autofocus (AF) operation." Additionally, this DSLR-like camera features a 3" LCD, red-eye reduction, face detection, 1080p video capture at 30fps, microHDMI port, USB, Memory Stick Pro Duo/SDHC card slots, and more.

  3. Pentax K-01 16.3-Megapixel Mirrorless Digital Camera Body
    Store: Adorama
    Price: $316.95 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $32

    Is It Worth It?: This Editor's Choice Pentax camera is available in Black (pictured) or Yellow and features a 3" LCD, 1920x1080 (1080p) HD video recording, SDHC card slot, USB, HDMI output, and more, though it lacks a bundled lens. This camera's "strengths lie in its use of existing standards; it's designed to use older K-mount lenses without an adapter, and uses Adobe DNG as its raw format," according to CNET. To boot, it's $30 under our mention from four weeks ago, providing the lowest total price we've ever seen for this camera.

  4. Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 14.1-Megapixel Digital Camera bundled with the Panasonic Lumix Case
    Store: Walmart
    Price: $99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $27

    Is It Worth It?: Although we saw this camera for $19 less in our expired mention a week ago, it didn't include the case, which is crucial to protecting this "speedy little camera with a long lens." Features include a 3" LCD, 10x optical zoom LEICA DC lens, 1080p video capture, 70MB built-in memory, USB and PictBridge connectivity, 4GB SD card, and more.

  5. Nikon 1 J1 10.1-Megapixel Mirrorless Digital Camera Bundle, the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T 10.1" 16GB LED-Backlt Google Android Tablet and an $11 Adorama Credit
    Store: Adorama
    Price: $559.95 in-cart with free shipping
    Lowest By: $125

    Is It Worth It?: This Nikon digital camera comes with the Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 Hybrid Lens in White. But that's not all. Customers will also bag the 1.4-lb ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T 10.1" 16GB LED-Backlt Google Android Tablet, and an $11 Adorama credit. Without even accounting for the credit, this price is $125 less than the lowest total price we could find for the camera and tablet when purchased separately elsewhere.

    The camera features a 3" LCD, 1080p HD video recording, SD card slot, USB 2.0, and more. But the real value may come in the other items it's bundled with. The tablet features an NVIDIA Tegra 3 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 10.1" 1280x800 IPS multi-touch LED-backlit LCD, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal flash storage, 8-megapixel back-facing camera, front-facing camera, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11n wireless, SD card slot, gyroscope, light sensor, Google Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and more.
