This weekend is WIRED25, our two-day live event featuring ideas, innovations, and icons that help to create a better future. If you're in the Bay Area, there's still time to visit us this weekend. Many of the people we spoke to in our November issue, such as Eva Galperin and Chris Evans, will be traveling around town and coming to our offices in San Francisco.
But even if you live anywhere near SF, you don't have to worry. Black Friday is near, and many stores have already begun their sales. This week, we looked at ongoing sales on Amazon and Dell. We also get to know the rest of our favorite deals from around the web.

Fall is the era of camera deals. Whether you're looking to step from your phone to a pocket-and-shoot point or want to go full DSLR, there are deals for you. Be sure to check out our guides to the best compact cameras, the best mirrorless cameras, and the best instant cameras.
Sony RX100 III for $ 598 ($ 150 off): Sony's update to the RX100 line so it's often almost comical. This model is over a year old but still offers most of what you find in the latest RX100 IV, for half the price. You get a top-tier 1-inch sensor, a superb pop-up electronic viewfinder, a Zeiss 24-70mm F1.8-2.8 lens, and 1080 video (no 4K, alas) in a very compact package.
The Panasonic Lumix ZS100 for $ 448 ($ 252 off): The Panasonic Lumix ZS100 compact gives you more zoom than the competition, which goes for a full 10x optical zoom lens. The 1-inch camera sensor is compatible with some of the best compact cameras and features 4K video and a good touchscreen interface. The newer model, the ZS200, is also $ 100.
The Fujifilm XT-3 Mirrorless Body Only $ 1,299 ($ 201 off): The Fujifilm flagship DSLR is for sale. The XT-3 has a 26.1 megapixel APS-C sensor and shoots 4K video at 60p. It is large and heavy but well built. Analog dial provides the feel, and the quick and easy function, of an older movie camera. from up to 8 feet, and generally take a beat and not complain. It's not always easy to use underwater, but without a camera, really. We like the extra features of this rugged point-and-shoot, such as GPS tracking, altimeters, measuring devices, and more.
