Panasonic DMC-FZ150K 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom (Black) (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
"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."

Seidio Innocell 3500 mAh Extended-Life Battery for HTC EVO 4G - Black
"There are all kinds of awesome smart phones out there, but a common drawback is dismal battery life. What I like about the Evo is that you can buy this huge battery for it and actually use the phone's outstanding features the whole day. Seidio makes batteries for other phones, too."
