Panasonic DMC-FZ150K 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom (Black)
1.  Panasonic DMC-FZ150K 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom (Black) by Panasonic
The list author says:
  "The FZ150 is a versatile camera that takes pictures and HD video. It features a swivel screen, external mic jack for better audio recording quality, a hot shoe, an improved sensor, and a lightning-fast burst mode for photos. Panasonic super-zoom cameras aren't the best in low-light situations, but they're great carry-around cameras and shoot great video."

5.  Seidio Innocell 3500 mAh Extended-Life Battery for HTC EVO 4G - Black by Seidio
The list author says:
