This weekend is WIRED 25, our two-day live event featuring the ideas, innovations, and icons helping to build a better future. If you’re in the Bay Area, there’s still time tovisit usthis weekend. Many of the people that we spoke to inour November issue, like Eva Galperin and Chris Evans, will be roaming around town and coming to our offices in San Francisco.
But even if you live nowhere near SF, you don’t have to worry. Black Friday is getting closer, and many stores have already started their sales. This weekend, we looked at ongoing sales atAmazonandDell. We’ve also highlighted the rest of our favorite deals from around the web.

Fall is camera deals season. Whether you’re looking to step up from your phone to a still-pocketable point-and-shoot or want to go full-frame DSLR, there are deals for you. Be sure to have a look at our guides tothe best compact cameras,the best mirrorless cameras, andthe best instant cameras.
(Sony RX) III for $ 598 ($ (off):Sony updates the RX 100 line so frequently it’s almost comical . This model is more than a year old but still offers most of what you find inthe latest RX 100 IV, at half the price. You get a top-tier 1-inch sensor, a very nice pop-up electronic viewfinder, a Zeiss 24 – 70 mm F1.8-2.8 lens, and 1080 video (no 4K, alas) in a very compact package.
Panasonic Lumix ZS 100 for $ 448 ($ (off):Panasonic’s compact Lumix ZS 100 gives you more zoom than the competition, going for a full 10 x optical zoom lens. The camera’s 1-inch sensor is on par with some of the best compact cameras and features 4K video and a great touchscreen interface. The newer model, the ZS 200,is also $ 100 off.
Fujifilm XT-3 Mirrorless Body Only $ 1, 299 ($ 201 off):Fujifilm’s flagship DSLR is on sale. The XT-3 has a 26 .1 megapixel APS-C sensor and shoots 4K video at p. It’s big and heavy but well-built. The analog dials give it the feel, and the quick and easy functions, of an older film camera.
Nikon W 300 Underwater Camera for $ 297 ($ (off):Nikon’s rugged W 300 is waterproof to 30 meters, shockproof on drops from up to 8 feet, and will generally take a beating and not complain. It’s not always easy to use underwater, but no camera is, really. We like the extra features in this rugged point-and-shoot, like GPS tracking, altimeter, depth gauge, and more.
