Was looking for an entry level DSLR. Came across this deal.

Canon 1100D with 18-55mm IS lens, 8 GB card, bag, and a filter.

more, quidco 3% is available.

scrolled through the forum, and found camerapricebuster as best place to compare the price.

now the question arises, is this camera any good for an entry level user?

and is buying a filter any good?

The camera can be had without card, bag and filter for £459 at Amazon:

You should be able to pick up the extras for £50, so the bundle is a good price if you want the whole kit.

The filter debate has raged on for a long time but basically falls into 2 camps - those who believe that it's a worthwhile investment because it protects the front of the lens and the others who believe that it reduces image quality so won't use one. Neither side will be persuaded that the other might be right, so take your choice!

Personally I'd reckon that the quality of most lenses and filters is better than the camera can resolve anyway and a few quid protecting the front element is worthwhile - but I'm sure that others will have different opinions.

Yes, it's a good entry-level DSLR. I would also consider the Nikon D5000 kit that's being advertised at Jessops at the moment for about £500. That is a twin lens kit which is very good value indeed.

thank you Spod :)

The link you posted it different to the one i posted. Both are with different lenses. The one I posted is with Image Stabilizer, and that lens is expensive comparing to the normal one.

I think, i will go with this deal because; This is a new camera comparing to Nikon D5000 which Nikon is no longer making it. I'd have something new rather than something about to get obselete from the market.

thanks for your valuable opinion, it was helpful :)

If you can afford a bit more, also consider the 550D:
http://www.warehouseexpress.com/buy-canon-eos-550d-digital-slr-plus-18-55mm-lens/p1519449
That would give you a full 1080 HD movie mode, higher resolution and more facilities, but you still have a green full-auto setting so it's fine for beginners. It would give you more flexibility if you want to get deeper into photography later, but the fully auto mode will let you get great pictures straight away with just a point and shoot.

Another option is the Nikon D3100 - again an excellent spec for a beginners camera with decent HD video capabilities as a bonus extra and quite reasonably priced: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00403MA4M/watersphotogr-21/ref=nosim
