You may have already seen Engadget posting reviews from our friends at The Wirecutter. Now, from time to time, we'll also be publishing their recommended deals on some of their top picks. Read on, and strike while the iron is hot -- some of these sales could expire mighty soon.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Digital Camera

Street Price: $748; MSRP: $900; Deal Price: $600

This is the best price we've seen on this camera by a huge margin. It's nearly $150 below its previous best deal. Free shipping is included.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is the upgrade pick in our guide on the best superzoom camera. Amadou Diallo said, "The Panasonic FZ1000's sensor is four times larger (and several times better) than the one in our main pick. Spending the extra money on this model gets you shallower depth of field, less image noise at high ISO settings, and a lens that lets in a lot more light. You do have to settle for a rather limited 16x zoom range, though."

iPad Air 2 64GB

Street Price: $600 MSRP: $600 Deal Price: $475

This isn't the best price we've seen on this tablet, but close. Staples had a couple sales that brought it down to $450. One was around the start of fall, the other recently during Black Friday. They managed to sell out of them during Black Friday, so if you missed your chance to grab it then, $475 is still an excellent deal.

The iPad Air 2 is our pick for the best tablet. Chris Heinonen and Dan Frakes wrote, "The new iPads are always better than last year's, and the newest devices always have a better balance of speed and features than older hardware. Also, the things that have made all the iPads strong tablets — like unbeatable app choices — are still present in this generation of the tablet."

Canon Powershot ELPH 350 HS Camera

Street Price: $200; MSRP: $210; Deal Price: $140

We recently featured a deal on this for $159 that came with a small bundle, which included an alright camera bag and a 16GB SD card. Considering the costs of SD cards and how small this camera is, the additional $20 savings makes for a much nicer deal.

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 350 HS is our pick for the best cheap camera. Amadou Diallo said, "This budget-priced point-and-shoot camera is compact, dead simple to use, and able to take photos that look better than other cameras' in its price range."

Audio-Technica ATH-M40x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones

Street Price: $100; MSRP: $140; Deal Price: $79

Here's a chance to get these headphones at a great price if you missed their Black Friday discount. This deal isn't quite as good, but it's still better than the street price. There's also a deal right now to get these headphones plus a Blue Yeti USB mic for $130, but if all you're looking for are the headphones, this is the better deal.

The Audio-Technica ATH-M40x headphones are the runner-up pick in our guide on the best $150 over-ear headphones. Lauren Dragan said, "The Audio Technica ATH-M40x pair is pretty well balanced for the price, with a crisp, articulate high end (that some listeners might find too bright) and rich bass. The replaceable cable is a nice bonus."

Deals change all the time, and some of these may have expired. To see an updated list of current deals, please go to The Wirecutter.com.
