If you're in the market for a new camera and want as much megapixel bang for the buck as you can get, Micro Center has the 10-megapixel GE E1030 on sale for just $129.99. (Yes, General Electric makes cameras--who knew?) That's a good $50 less than you'll pay elsewhere.

The E1030 features a 2.7-inch LCD, 3X optical zoom, and automatic face, smile, and blink detection. It offers a dozen scene modes and can record 25-fps VGA movies. It can also stitch together panoramic shots right in the camera. The camera has a paltry 26MB of internal storage, but supports SDHC cards of up to 4GB.

As savvy camera shoppers know, more megapixels don't always translate to better pictures. I did a little recon and discovered mostly positive reviews of the E1030, including an average user rating of 4.5 stars at Yahoo Tech. Thus, if you're looking for a slim, affordable pocket shooter, this could be a fine choice.

Thanks to reader Brian for sharing this deal!

Update: According to a GE rep, the E1030 has only face detection, not blink and smile detection. Clicking the Face Detection icon on the product page leads to a feature page that describes all three features, which strikes me as a bit misleading. In any case, I apologize for the error.
