The trick to scoring this Amazon camera deal is to take advantage of Amazon’s “open box” stock. While Amazon offers a number of “renewed” (or refurbished) digital cameras — including a ton of renewed Sony PowerShot cameras in stock — the site’s “open box” cameras are brand new cameras that with packaging that has been slightly damaged or opened. The cameras themselves are brand new and never-before-used. Shopping from Amazon’s “open box” camera inventory will get you prices that are even cheaper than the site’s current discount prices.

In this case, you get a brand new PowerShot SX420 camera that is great for both content creators and amateur photographers alike, delivering vivid 20MP images and full HD video. The powerful 42x optical zoom and 24mm wide-angle lens lets you capture the tiniest details, even from far away, while the high-speed auto-focus lets you lock into your shots quickly, with little to no lag time.

Built-in WiFi makes it easy to share your photos wirelessly, sending them to your phone or laptop for editing and posting. Want to jazz up your pics? Choose from built-in filters like Retro, Monochrome, Special and Natural.

This is a great starter digital camera or a camera for casual use. It’s super easy to use right out of the box, with intuitive controls, a large three-inch LCD screen and a comfortable, ergonomic grip. The PowerShot’s “Intelligent IS” feature helps to minimize shaking, for steadier images and less blurring. “Zoom Framing Assist,” meantime, helps you track your subject easily and lock into it with better focus and clarity.

If you’re a professional photographer, you’ll want to upgrade to the more powerful Canon DSLR models here. But for everyone else, you can’t beat the value and ease of the PowerShot SX420. At just $259, this is the cheapest price we’re seeing anywhere for this best-selling digital camera.

This deal gets you the Canon PowerShot SX420 Camera with wide angle lens, plus a camera strap, lens cap and battery. This Canon deal gets you everything on sale for just $259 right now on Amazon. Snag the deal fast before it ends or quantities run out. See full details here.
