A WHILE BACK, a reader wrote me for a recommendation on a camera under 69 bucks. I couldn’t help him much at that price point. But now there’s a one-day-only sale at 59 bucks on a Kodak EasyShare that looks pretty good. I’ve got a Kodak (here), and it’s a nice, reliable little camera that takes excellent pictures. And did I mention that this one’s only 59 bucks? There are better cameras out there, but not at this price.

UPDATE: Reader Ross Hardy emails: “I have to say that I am very grateful that you posted that link on your website. My current camera is three years old and an 8 megapixel (also Kodak). Even though I got a good deal at Wal-Mart for it ($100) and it still works fine, I just couldn’t resist buying the newer 12 megapixel for only $59. Thanks!” Yeah, you can’t beat that price.
