£10 voucher (for £100+ spend) finishes tomorrow (Dec 7).

Hmmm.... Looks like a bargain at first, but when compared to the 450d lacks spot meter, LCD 2.5" vs 3", live view only in manual mode, IS only in lens, etc. I was looking at the Sony A300 from Jessops for £279 after cashback. Tiltable 2.7" LCD, better live view, spot meter, WB visible on screen and IS in camera works with any lens. Can't decide which one.

the sony a200 is a far better camera than the cannon and is cheaper and has really good reviews check here at this link for amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-DSLR-A200K-Digital-18-70mm-F3-5-5-6/dp/B0011U9U9A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1228585435&sr=8-1 and the image stabalisation is in the body i have this camera and i am really pleased having had a cannon eos 40d before i prefer the sony hope it helps

Only difference between this deal and last week's thread is the reduction in VAT. Great camera though. Hard to justify £100+ extra for 450D for relatively minor upgrades. See earlier thread for lots of info. Canon and Nikon do consistently well in reviews (Canon usually wins) whereas Sony gets mixed reviews and some suggestion that reliability is suspect.

Don't forget the Argos gift card trick which can take another £25 off this price!

Both the A300 and 1000D have one purpose, and one purpose only. To take a picture. Make sure you know which one does this best before making your decision..

I know which one I'd choose, and it wouldn't be the one with the tiltable LCD....

I've got the A200 and a ton of Canon gear.

The A200 is most definitely not better. The AF isn't as quick or as accurate, especially in low-light. Its more sluggish in operation and noise is an issue at higher ISO's. To cap it all, the A200 kit lens is probably the worst of its type, while the Canon's IS version is about the best in this range. The Canon is also better built, although to be fair the Sony is good.

The A300 is basically the same plus an effective live-view system. However, the trade-off is a lousy viewfinder in comparison.

If you're comparing to the 450d, there's simply no contest. Thats the best compact dslr on the market at anything like this price. You'd need to go to a Canon 40D or Nikon D90 to get better.

Would not recommend a Sony - get a Canon instead
#9
How does this compare with the Panasonic FZ28, I know its SDLR and the FZ28 isn't, but if I were just to get one or other and not buy any extra lenses how do they compare??
#10
The DSLR will have better low light performance and more flexible manual controls. Putting such a wide angle and wide range zoom in a single lens is naturally going to be a compromise on the FZ28.

In body image stablization is nice to have (since it applies automatically to all lenses) but IS in the lens is better on long zoom lenses since it also stabilizes the viewfinder image.

You had a 40d and prefer the A200? i went the other way around (A200 to 40d) and the canon is light years in PQ, performance and handling.

Im new to the DSLR scene after having a few compact digi's. I've got to say that the image quality and response times are amazing, I was, and remain, constantly blown away by just how good the format is over the compacts!! If money isnt a problem then go for it, other worries like size/ weight etc are soon forgotten when you review your photos!! :thumbsup:

I'd say that a DSLR should take better pictures but if you want something fairly compact, a bit cheaper, and don't want to carry a load of gear around with you the fz28 would do the job - I'm assuming you need the x18 zoom. Having watched a bloke drop his Swarovski scope onto concrete steps because he was juggling with too much gear had made me a bit wary of clutter.

i got some argos vouchers worth £150 expires in 2011 if anyone need them PM me. thanks
#15
There are a few comparison reviews out there, and they usually end by saying the Sony A200/A300 and the various low end Canons (and the equivalent Nikons too) are basically identical in image quality. For example, dpreview is quite good in comparing the Sony A200, the Canon 1000 and the Nikon D60. The Sony has the best detail resolution , but the weakest high ISO performance (mainly due to poor noise reduction, although you can fix all that by going RAW). There are compromises in them all.
#16
If you have a chance to get an A300 for under £300, take it

Good pictures and lenses are pence from that well-known auction site (Minolta)

Just back from Argos and bagged one with the voucher scam, so only paid £228.61. Now thats a hot deal for this badboy!

Are you impressed with it? What comes in the box? What does the 18-55 zoom translate to in terms of optical zoom?

Still undecided as to what to go for!!!

Nothing more complicated than 55/18 = 3.06x :-)

Hehe, it sort of is, but there are complications. When you see 5x zoom on a consumer camera, what it means is 28-140mm, or 35-175 etc etc. However, the widest angle (the lower number) isn't always the same, so just quoting "5x zoom" by itself isn't terribly helpful ....... but it is easier to market :-) Also, DSLR sensors confuse things up a little, you have to multiple by 1.5x, so 18-55mm is really the equivalent of 27-82mm - approximately from fairly wide angle, to a good portrait size.

On top of that, the longer the zoom range the harder it is to make the thing decent quality, which is why a lot of dslr users carry 2+ or more lenses (eg 18-55 for wide angle landscape+portrait, and a 55-200 for telephoto). Half the fun of dslr land is in getting the right lenses for your needs - beware this can be rather an expensive hobby.......

Yes I see what you are saying, might stick with the FZ28 for now!!

Thanks for the advice!

It's better (but bigger)!

Why not look up the reviews instead of asking everyone else to do it for you?

Touchie touchie!!!

I am looking at the reviews but they are all giving the similar scores, so its always nice to ask people on here who are usually very helpful and knowledgable! :whistling:

Any idea how long this offer is on at Argos for?

Someone mentioned a 'voucher scam' at argos to get this for £229.

Sorry to be thick but how does the voucher thing work?

Thanks

Thanks


1/ Go to the counter and ask if they will honour the free £10 gift voucher on £100 spend if the spend is on a £100 gift card.

2/ If they say yes, make 3 separate gift card purchases, 2 x £100 & 1 x £50 gift cards and you'll get £25 in free vouchers

3/ You now have £275 in vouchers to put towards the camera purchase (£25 of which were free). You'll also get an additional £10 Argos voucher when you purchase the camera. A


As long as you remember to get the Canon cash back too, thats a total of £55 off the purchase price plus a £10 Argos voucher - not bad eh?

I tried this in one store and was told it was not possible. Walked down the street to another Argos and they did it for me with no problems.

Good Luck!

Now £342.54 - Expired?

Can anyone advise me - my mrs just got me a secondhand EOS 400d for my B-day from London Camera Exchange - I reckon she paid about £300 ish for it (with lens).

Should I take it back and get this instead? The reviews I have read actually say that the 1000 is lower spec than than the 400d?

Pity the boots one (450d) is out of stock!
