Yeah, great price.
I've got a 450D, the 18-55mm lens and a 55-300mm. I imagine the 250 is also superb.

Hot hot hot!

Yep the 55-250 lens is a great lens - currently using it on my 550d. The 18-55 is a pretty pathetic lens though. For anyone getting this deal you should then buy the Canon EF 50mm f1.8 II at around £85 it's an absolute beauty of a lens for the price.

Don't forget quidco as well... I bought a laptop from Argos Outlet and got about £4 quidco.

I would also definitely recommend Argos outlet, the delivery is really quick and the items I've ordered have all been brand new rather than refurbished as stated in the eBay listing.

whats a good price for just the 55-250mm?

sorry cold, it used to be cheaper on Argos site. You must be mad to pay fo canon 450D £429 when back to 2008 it was the same price + cashback from Canon. Better stick with Sony.

First of all it has 2 lenses. Second - Sony??!! Really??!! LOL.

P.S. Won't be surprise if people will start posting comparison of 2010 Sony models with 2008 Canon. Just look where Sony wins (useless specs like 2 cards slot )

By the way - HOT.

Good quality brand new boxed equipment won't loose that much in price. Fair enough it ws cheaper with 1 kit lens 2 years ago, but zoom lens is around 170£ itself

Speaks volumes of the ability of the Canon if it can still command the same price.

(Or good marketing)

I cut my teeth on this camera (now have a 7d) and its a really good one to get on with

2 lenses very handy as if you buy a standard kit lens in the 18-55mm range with any camera you will often be a bit disappointed with the "zoom" range you get so the 55-250 to have at the start is very nice.

always going to be better/new much more expensive gear round the corner but this is a good buy

agree with the comment on the canon 50mm 1.8 as well

as for sony - nothing really wrong with going down that route but you are quite restricted with lense options and using your kit in the future - with a canon or nikon there is a lot more you can get and if you ever upgrade to a new or higher end model the lenses / flash etc... will generally be compatible

depends if you need the extra features of the 550d

the photo taking ability of this camera is very good - next step up in real world terms would be a 60d or 7d

Was after the 550d for the 1080p recording too. Am I right to say the 450d does not record at all?

If you want the video i would say 550d - i heard of a way you can ge the 450d to do it (doesnt have the feature out of the box) but really it would be a pain and you might as well have soemthing designed to do it easily

In repsonse to a few points: 450d doesn't record video but is a great still camera and the 550d isn't really an upgrade in terms of image. If you want video 550d is the only option. If you are a novice photographer who doesn't want video then 450d is more than adequate. I'd even argue that in good lighting conditions the 450d and 550d aren't that far behind the 7d purely in image terms, change the conditions and counting the vast array of extra better features, build quality, weather proffing etc then clearly 7d is much better.

Bloke who said get a sony is either having a joke or is a joke. Sony makes a good quality equipment and I wouldn't slate it but there is no way they come close to Canon or Nikon in photography stakes.

Lens - both decent beginners lenses. If you get the bug you will want to upgrade which isn't cheap. A few people have mentioned the prime 50 f1.8. Decent lens but i'd save a few more bucks and get the f1.4 it does make a huge difference. Cost is always an issue but at about £300 its worth the extra. The L series f1.2 probably isn't.

I had to use one of these two shoot a wedding couple of years ago when I had my gear nicked the night before - didn't cause me any problems although high ISO in low-light wasn't great. All in all recommended and good deal.

If youre anywhere near a clearance bargains shop go there. I was in the Stanley store today and saw this priced at £449 - Definately the twin lens set too. Also had a couple of sony dslrs for £300ish cant remember what models.

I feel that I must disagree with this being completely suitable for a 'Novice' (Waits to get shot down in flames :))

If you are a true novice and have only experienced basic £50 digicams then a bridge would be more suitable UNLESS you intend to get into photography in a big way, as the learning curve for a true DSLR (Which this undoubtably is) is quite awe inspiring.

Enough to curtail the initial enthusiasm. (I can only add that you can thank your lucky stars, that nowadays, you don't have the added cost of developing & printing)

It isn't the camera that takes the photos after all, and if you don't have a clue about lighting, for example then your efforts will be a total waste.

Unless money is no object then most would be better advised to start with the mid-range stuff and then progress up to this and then beyond if you feel that you can justify the expenditure.

The recent offer of the Panny FZ38 (£177) would suffice for the majority of novices and by the time you have moved up in ability, the Canon available then will more likely be better than this.

Alternatively a novice would be better served by S/H equipment. (a 40D - 50D for example)

Isn't the point of this site to post the best deal as it is now? Saying it was cheaper months ago is pretty much redundant. If this is the cheapest price you can get this camera right now, then it should be voted hot.

Btw, you said cheaper on 'Argos site', but then link to a thread that links to the Argos Outlet. So was it every cheaper on the Argos site? I doubt it.

I always thought the same on moving to a f/1.2 (I have the f1.8 50 mm prime too and have tried the 1.4). I would say that once you have tasted the 1.2 (Carl Zeiss on a Sony Body ironically!) you start to long for the L glass.

Sony do do some good kit and I have tried a lot of it (through a Sony salesman friend). They have been in digital photography a long time too, please don't forget this! I think that the experienced around here will give their credence for it, but will always vear back to the staples of Canon/Nikon.

I still have a classic/vintage 300D and still actually like the 18-55 stock that came with it (no ISM). It has a marvellous sweet spot around f/11. The fact you can pan to 18 mm is v useful too. Any sort of low light and it dies, as will the 450. You could just get a loan and get a mans camera, the 5D mkII :D

I'd recommend this kit , see if you get the bug and then plug the gaps you see arising: Zoom, profiles, low light, macro, etc.

Thats pretty impressive. But, realistically who wants to carry a laptop, and, a camera to record movies? Presumably if you want sound you would also have to set up a mic to the laptop? I like this deal though so am going to vote hot, this is a great set up for someone wanting to get into DSLR photography, (I have owned both a 450d with the 55-250 lens and its a cracking outfit). The 450d is about 3 years or so old though so if you someone who always wants the latest technology it might not be for you, but for outright photo quality and potential this is a great set up. But pleaaasee dont buy one of these and just shoot in Auto all the time , you miss out on all the potential of the images this camera can produce if you do.....
#34
mmm am just looking at the price of lens alone the 18-55 is cost £69 and the 55-250 cost £125 ( without looking to see if I could get them cheaper) So the camera body only is costing £299 So is it still a good price ?? It looks like a good Buy if you don't want a "gray" camera

Depends what kind of novice you are I suppose. If the only interest is in point and shoot then get something simple. Something like a 450d is great for those who want to learn. I know someone who bought an early DSLR and left the setting on complete auto for six months but then looked at the meta-data after every shot. Once she knew what settings made a good shot, she experimented and started using the P, AV, Tv modes to be more creative. Any EOS cmaera is straight forward but like anything research, reading, looking at other peoples images and simple practice are always going to be the best ways to learn.

I ordered this at around the same price from Argos ebay outlet and am very happy with it. Still trying to figure out how to get the best out of it but that could take years.

For a first DSLR this is a good buy as the difference between the 450 and the newer 500 & 550 isn't enough to justify the extra money in my eyes.
