Our heads are still spinning from all the major camera and camcorder announcements at last week's Consumer Electronics Show.

Our heads are still spinning from all the major camera and camcorder announcements at last week's Consumer Electronics Show. Despite the hubbub, you can't actually buy the majority of those just-announced products yet.

Fortunately, that gives you a bit of time to start saving up, and thanks to the list below, you'll know how much money you'll need to stow away by a certain deadline. Here are the release dates for the major cameras and camcorders we saw at this year's show, along with the pricing information announced by each company; keep in mind, both pricing and release dates are subject to change.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
