P.s perfect for a starter and a great price, start with this, purchase a xouple of lenses when u save up nifty fifty 1.8 first, then maybe a zoom or macro lens depending ob ur persuasion... But an ideal starter set up id say, additional lenses with canon are about as cheap as they get due to the brand popularity... Rempted by this but like i say wiuld need to get paid first :P good find op, havent dver seen this so cheap, and im the type to take a chance on refurb.. Manufacturer refurb is as good as it can get i suppose :)

You forgot to add P&P price.

**** camera, anyways. ISO sensitivity is crap, noise is too high in low light situations because, in my personal opinion, the sensor is CDMO, and no vid (at times, you'd need it even if you are interested in just taking pics). Better off paying a bit more and getting 500D or anything above

Thanks for the feedback, i'm relatively new to DSLRs so was not sure if its a good deal or not.

At this price it is amazing value, I had this camera for about 6 months, took some great shots with it and it really ignited my passion in photography. 6 month ownership is due to outgrowing it and upgrading, but without owning this camera first I never would have been happy spending the higher amount for my 500D.
So if you are already properly into photography and know all about the manual settings, then skip this model and go for a higher one. But if you are new to photography and want to give it a proper go without spending a fortune, this is perfect.

Been thinking about getting a DSLR for a while, and im just back from a holiday and sick of crap photos!

For still photography, this is perfect and will meet all your needs.

The only comment above about noise is pretty wide of the mark. Bearing in mind it's a 4 year old camera, it was better than it's peers for noise (though if you ask me it's a bit too digitally processed in that respect).

The comment about video is quite accurate though. DSLRs are now expected to take high quality digital and for me I'd not consider one that didn't. Of course, I've got two kids who's every second apparently needs to be documented and then stored digitally for ever (so my wife tells me). YMMV

Is this better than the Nikon D3000?

Me too if I hadn't bought the admittedly brand n ew and excellent Lumix G10 I would have snapped this up. Ah well. By the time I get better with photos, the Canon 600D will be this price ! X)

Bloody typical that this comes up after buying the Panny G2 from Tesco.

Might order this and consider my options later.

its a decent camera - i still use my 400d and with my 24-70 lens it takes pictures that my sony nex3 can only dream of

i think the 400d is equivelant, the 1000 is an odd one from canon and imo a step down from the 400d
#14
bit cheaper than the D3000 though
#15
Good camera if you're just starting with DSLR photography. I started with it 3 years ago, but I would still recommend it for beginners. Although there's a newer model out, the 1100D, this price is outstanding...
#16
Exelent price. Price was always like £280 - £320 so this is real BARGAIN!!!

Having a DSLR doesn't make you a better photographer.

I disagree. I've recently gone from using auto mode on a point and shoot camera to auto mode on DSLR. My pictures are a lot better so in that respect it has made me a better photographer as my output quality has improved. The auto mode is a great place to start for beginners as you slowly learn the functions of the camera.

Your response is a good one, but iNfy is still correct - the DSLR hasn't improved your photography skills.

It is definitely an enabler; but working with cheaper, older, more limited equipment can also be good as it forces you (if you have a genuine interest) to learn techniques to minimise those disadvantages - you then become something of a superstar when you upgrade to top-notch stuff.

In fact, I would say a newbie can improve the quality of their output more by learning technique than upgrading to a DSLR.

Great deal though.

Rather odd option to add a 1 year warranty for £35 on the page - anybody tempted to do that "for safety" should note the warranty policy linked on the product page means a years warranty is included, IANAL, etc. Perhaps its an additional year?

So that's cheaper-than-Gumtree price, including a years warranty from Canon.
#22
Its decent, but if you have a little extra to spend, get the 500D

The price is stonkingly hot, as mentioned its perfect for beginners and yes it has a few downsides, but compared to a point and click its miles better.

The warranty option was introduced by Ebay last year. This is useful if you purchase an item from a seller who offer minimal warranty. Canon Outlet offer a 1 year warranty which is offered as a Canon standard warranty.

Depends on your requirements, portrait use you get some rather nice shots from EF 50mm f1.8 prime at just under £90. On this camera it will actually be 80mm.

Wildlife shot or where you will need a zoom, the EF-S 55-250mm IS is a good budget lens which would suit this body well, with image stabilisation included too... They are around the £150 mark. Found Simply Electronics offer good prices on Canon Lens. Check out Camerapricebuster.co.uk for prices too.

You will hear everywhere that Lens / glass is your best investment, so if you have some money burning a hole in your pocket get something which grow with your abilities. FYI in case you don't know - EF-S lens are for APS-C cameras only so will fit on xxD xxxD and xxxxD but EF is for 35mm sensors such as xD (there are a couple exceptions here now thanks to Canon fragmenting things!) However EF lens fit on all Canon DSLR bodies.

Excellent price.
#29
Perfect option to see if you will get the best from a DSLR. I got mine 4 years ago for over £300 and am awaiting delivery of my 7D now. Takes great pictures for the price. 10MP is fine for most people unless you do some serious cropping. ISO options are good for entry level and you can easily learn the basics. Build up your lenses and they will be transferable to another Canon as long as you don't go to full frame.

Hi guys,

I have a Digital Rebel (300D). Other than upping the pixels, is there any new features present do you think?
I have some decent pro lenses but the camera I feel is not making full use of them.

I have the white dot (I forget the two types) type macro lens but the rest are red dot... Will these all work?

Thanks in advance for any kind responses.

You can probably get some decent features on your current 300D if you use this:

I have a 300D but too much of an amateur to require any of those features, so I haven't tested it myself.

Do any of you know how much time does this take (as in seconds) to click a picture....i am just asking this because i have a Fujifilm bridge camera and after i press the button to click the picture it takes about good few seconds to capture the pic.....so wondering if this could be quick? thanks...

The white dot (EF-S) lenses will work on all canon EOS 1.6x crop sensor cameras, which this is. The red dot (EF) lenses will work on al EOS canon cameras so no worry about compatibility there.
300D is old but still not a bad camera itself. The more useful screen on the back is likely to be the thing you notice most if you did 'upgrade'

Canon's warranty support is very good as well so their warranty means a lot over a random second hand purchase. The SX200 I bought from the Canon eBay outlet developed erectile dysfunction, they told me to send it to one of the Canon approved service centers, came back as good as new in about a week. Heat added

I had a Fujifilm bridge camera before and regret wasting money on it. Too slow taking pics and saving them compared to almost any DSLR. My 300D is very snappy compared to my old bridge cam. In terms of saving pics more quickly, always go for the faster rated memory cards.

This would be a good price for just the body, but with a lens this is a cracking deal.

I was tempted, but I know that at some point I would have to sell it again, and buy a better one.

DSLR's have virtually no delay from pressing the button, it is only the number of times you can take a picture a second that is a noticeable difference
