lol added to your other deal

Too late the 10% voucher has expired,

I dont think any of the lenses have Image Stabilisation (IS). It would be very useful for the telephoto zoom.
#5
wasn't this posted yesterday?
#6
This is an outdated camera now and lenses aren't the best - there are better deals out there.
#7
better deals? where?

They both have IS - that's why it says image stabilisation in big letters on the telephoto lens in the photo...

Brought this camera with the 18-55 lens from canon outlet for £360 a few months ago and its a great camera. Yeh its a generation behind but that doesnt mean it's a bad camera at all infact far from it. For anyone who isn't "Pro" then this its a great camera for those who want to go from a point and shoot too more control.
#11
Corking deal, got one last week, on the same deal. Doubt they'll have too much trouble shifting these at this price. Corking camera, persuaded me to jump (back) into the SLR world.
#12
Personally I wouldn't be drawn into this offer. A 2nd hand 500D is around £300 nowadays, stick a tamron 17-50mm 2.8 onto that for another £200 and you'll have an awesome and lightweight setup.

However for the camera and gear in the OP, it is a good deal.

Slightly misleading description. The camera isn't EF-S mount, these cameras accept EF and EF-S lens. It may give the unaware readers the impression they must specifically purchase EF-S lens for their camera's and any already owned EF lens may not work, which is not true.
#13
Agreed about the comment, used is always better but this is a good new and still a good camera, I've done paid jobs with a Canon 350D, its more about being able to use it....

Someone who knows how to use a SLR would get better images with a £150 350D than a beginer would with a £1000 7D.
#14
Not really an amazing deal, if anyone is half serious about photography they will find themselves upgrading the lenses relatively soon.

Nonsense, Yes it's a few years old but not at all outdated and makes a great first SLR especially with the additional 55-250m lens. I have both and am very happy.

Of course they're not the best, that's why this is a cracking deal at this price. So what's this better deal you refer to? The 550D for £200 more? Think before you speak please.

I have used a 450D for a good few years before buying a 7D a few weeks ago. I have still kept the 450D. Nearly all the pics on my site http://www.perfectlight.co.uk were taken with the 450D.

Spending on kit is relative and some pros who use 10 x 8 sheet film cameras would say that's the way to go if you are 'half serious about photography'. Cams on mobile phones can make absolutely terrific images - it's nearly always about who's using the device that counts in the end.
#19
I have the same camera and got it few years back when it was around 400£ Dixons duty free deal. haven't seen it cheaper since then. Lenses are not good, and most probably most will get changed, but you can still sell them on ebay and get some good lenses. At the end it is not the camera that makes good pictures ;)

Do you mean the non-VC version?

yep, non-vc is widely regarded as better and more value for money. I personally owned two of them.

Fair enough. I decided for the VC version as it was better then Sigma or Canon had to offer. Slightly off topic ;)

Yeah but I'm just concerned that these may not even be the IS versions of the lenses (well 55-200 only comes with IS AFAIK). They are shown in pictures as IS while no mention of that in description, while it doesn't say that pictures are for illustration purposes only you never know. As for the camera itself there's nothing wrong with it (especially if you don't need video), hell I'm still using Canon 20D and it's true that it's what behind the camera that matters. No matter what equipment you use, they won't improve your composition and use of exposure/lighting, etc etc..

Anyway getting back to the deal I'm just not sure this provides such a good value for money as a package. For a beginner who probably won't be upgrading for a long time, Pentax K-x provides better value for money (cheaper, has video, good ISO performance).

there are better value deals out there if you wait for them to come along, this one for instance that i got a few weeks back:

Hmm, not sure if I would buy Sony photo equipment again. Had few Sony cameras in the past and was only unhappy with picture quality and surprisingly build quality as well I copmared them to Canon or Panasonic pictures from similar models and always competition was way better. Have to add it that I never had Sony SLR nor DSLR...

The 55-250 is only available as IS version
The 18-55 given with this model was always IS as well. Haven't seen non IS sold with 450D

Comparing Sony and Canon SLR's is like comparing Sony and Onkyo hifi.....(waiting for :p comments)

It's personal preference though, you need to go to a shop and hold these things in your hands, and see if the button layouts good for you

Seems to be a lot of baffling posts on here, people who seem they would ONLY buy based on spec... End of the day I'm sure if your a skilled photographer you will be able to produce stunning shots with this camera. End of. I can guarantee a decent photographer will take better pics with this than a newbie learning the ropes with a 550

And the 550d is £650.....£300 more than the Sony so yeah, I'd hope it's better!

Then why do you compare brand new camera with old one?

Sorry to disagree but the 55-250 is a cracking lens. Read all the reputable reviews on the net. I've used it and it produces quality pictures

Because the Sony deal was considerably cheaper than this cannon deal and the specs are better, this is a deal website and so most peoples main priority on here is a low price
#38


This was a cracking deal, I was very tempted on this one but had recently bought a Sony twin kit deal from best buy
#39
Going to throw this in the mix... Yeah its not a DSLR... but it'll take DSLR lenses with adapters or Oly/Pana micro 4/3 lens straight on... has in-body stabilisation... is small... and image quality defo good enough for a lot of people.. also has vid

At this price its insanely cheap IMO

Olympus e-pl1 body

Still, you need to put your mind into it. If you like Sony, fair enough. Sony wins only 1 point, and at the end of the day you need to decide what is more important for you.

Having one extra slot or Slightly larger viewfinder is not a big advantage, but having bigger screen, fps or CMOS sensor would be for most people. Also not entirly true comparison, as canon can have stabilization, but it would be lens based. End so on...
