Chalk this one up as the steal of the day. Amazon has the Panasonic LX5 for $269 in its Goldbox Deal of the Day, but I have a feeling it won’t make it through the day before they sell out of them at this price (retail is $499, and normal street price is around $370).

The Panasonic Lumix LX5 is a 10.1MP advanced point and shoot camera. It features a bright f/2.0 max aperture lens with a 3.8x optical zoom (24-90mm equivalent). The LX5 also captures HD video in AVCHD Lite format and offers a 3-inch, 460k-dot resolution LCD. The LX5 serves as a follow-up to the highly regarded LX3 model.
The Panasonic LX5 should be available in August 2010 at an initial retail price of $499.95.
