WHAT: Media invited to CompUSA stores to see what's hot this holiday season and learn consumer tips on how to make the best digital purchases.

    Digital cameras and High Definition (HD) camcorders, photo printers and digital photo frames are expected to be some of the hottest items to fly-off store shelves. CompUSA is demonstrating the wide selection of digital imaging technology available this season and providing some shopping tips:

-- Find the right camera based on a user's wants, needs and budget. Stores like CompUSA offer a wide variety of digital cameras, camcorders and accessories for the seasoned professional to first time users. The average picture-taker who just needs to "point and shoot" can find cameras as low as $79, based on features. Higher-quality cameras with larger zoom ratios and more features start at about $249. Families that want to upgrade their digital camcorder before the holidays should consider the new HD models to enjoy movies in the highest quality. HD camcorders are available starting at under $1,000. Pocket-size flash drive camcorders are the newest models and are great for on-the-go use with prices starting as low as $120.

-- Look to see what features are offered. Important digital camera features to consider are resolution/megapixels, lenses, multimedia capabilities, storage capacity and flash modes. The new HD camcorders feature hard drives that don't require tapes or DVDs and enable users to record directly onto the internal hard drive.

-- Show your pictures off with the latest technology. There is a lot of buzz about digital photo frames that enable photos to be stored on a photo frame. For photo lovers who want to carry their precious pictures with them, there is also the Digital Key Chain Photo Frame that can store up to 56 photos on a keychain.

-- Don't forget the accessories to complement a new digital camera. This year there are some fun things to choose from. Portable photo printers enable picture-takers to print 4"x6" and 5"x7" photos while on-the-go and share them with family and friends. CompUSA offers portable photo printers starting under $100. Also, consider purchasing more extra memory cards to gain more memory for a digital camera, as not all cameras come with enough media to ensure plenty of storage. Extra memory cards are available for as low as $10.

-- Fun gift ideas for avid photographers. Another great tool to maximize the digital photo experience is editing software. Software, such as Photo Explosion, makes it easy to edit, organize and share pictures. Another great option for the avid photographer is Scrapbooking software. Scrapbook Factory Deluxe 3.0 provides all the tools to create sensational scrapbooks and other unique photo projects. These software products retail for under $40.
