Panasonic DMC-LX3

I don't usually pay too much attention at point-and-shoot cameras nor DSLR cameras but this one truly deserves an exception. A close friend of mine bought one the other day and while listening to his excited tone as he describe how lucky he was to have found one of the last remaining few stocks before this thing gets phased out, I checked it out myself and was simply blown away. This thing has several outstanding features that can turn a non-believer like me into a photography wannabe just minutes after seeing what this baby can do. Did I mention that it was made in Japan? The last time I saw an electronic gadget that was not made in china or taiwan was 10 years ago!

1. Vivid pics even at really low-light conditions.

Call of Duty 4 : Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition with Night Vision Goggles

These are said to be available only in the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game for around $150 (ouch!) and not for the PC. But still, its still worth checking out even if you are not a gamer at heart. As long as its a fully functional night-vision goggles (not military-grade though), I am good with it just sell the game on ebay or something if you like the goggles so much but does'nt want the game itself lying around depreciating in value...
