Same deal that has been posted a few times now. its back down to 419 again, but now a new offer means you can have the manfrotto 393 short photo tripod for just over a tenner which isn't bad, seeing as its normally 35quid for this tripod.


so in total its
£423.53 camera and kit lens + tripod (Before cashback)
£383.53 camera and kit lens + tripod (after cashback)
£419.99 camera and kit lens (Before cashback)
£379.99 camera and kit lens (after cashback)

The ten pound stretch for a decent tripod seems like good value but then again i don't know a thing about tripods so I'll let the more educated members confer and decide in the comments.

if you haven't heard of the canon cash-back heres a link:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_171967167_3?ie=UTF8&docId=1000677383&plgroup=3&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=hero-quick-promo&pf_rd_r=1AVQ30B0Q6T5XKRZXSD4&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=341342107&pf_rd_i=B004MPQXZ0

and heres the tripod offer

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_172494307_4?ie=UTF8&docId=1000688043&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=special-offers-2&pf_rd_r=1AVQ30B0Q6T5XKRZXSD4&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=350315627&pf_rd_i=B004MPQXZ0

The tripod offer spans till the 30th january 2013 and isnt exclusive to just this camera, so check the link for further details.

And for those who arnt aware of the canon cashback, it spans till 24th january 2013 and across a few canon products so check the link for more details.

those who are in the dilemma of 600d v 650d, and your first time buyers wanting to use this for video, then go research magic lantern before pulling the trigger.

anything else i miss please do add in the comments and ill get around to editing the post, THANKS

(UPDATE : Tripod now only £3.50 more!)

Nikon tends to be behind on the technology curve. But they may offer more features at the same price (to compete).

Most people say go with Canon, but it really depends on the offers etc. available.

If you plan on buying a camera and a lens and leave it at that, canon or nikon. If you plan to get a whole load of lenses and upgrade, go with canon. More future there on the dslr side.

You must be joking.
Nikon have been smoking equivalent canons for stills for a while now. Better on high iso, automatically correcting lens errors etc, wireless flash across midrange since 2004 etc.

Canon tend to be better at video though.
Get onto snap sort and do some comparisons.

Both will be very much the top two for the foreseeable in my opinion.

I must be doing something wrong as it keeps coming to £450? - £40 cashback obviously.

I can't see anything being taken off at the checkout.

Canon makes its own sensor for its DSLRs, Nikon does not. Sadly, Sony's sensors has not been too a too good match against Canon's in the past few years, probably due to the sticky financial situation they are in.

There are miles long discussions on nikon vs. canon and even Nikon fanboys agree that technically speaking Canon may have the upper arm, but when it comes to handling etc. everyone has their own preferences.

Which is better for a person is not something I'd like to go too deep as it is very subjective. But objectively speaking Canons are better tech-wise – but again, what one wants depends on preferences and the pricing strategy of the rivals.

Be warned tho, all my friends who ask for advice I tell them the following:
If you want cheap lenses off our local equivalent of ebay, go Nikon.
If you ever want to sell your gear, steer clear of Nikon.

Same lenses for Canon and Nikon mounts: Nikon's can be 30% cheaper because no one buys them. Or, for every 1 used canon mount lens for sale there seems to be 1,5-2 nikon lenses, even though Nikon's marketshare is way lower.

And it's getting worse. Obvious really, just hope that most people don't realise that because that might mean Nikon going out of business and that leaves semi-pros exactly where..?

On that note, buy Fujifilm cameras, I don't want them to go bust. Crappy firmware and poor usability but excellent technology.

nice find. just got a 650d with same lens for 449 via digitalrev otherwise I'd be all over this. If looking at this vs the d5100 also the cheaper d3200 as it's getting very good reviews. I went Canon as loved my old 35mm eos and cheaper as motor is in body. plus magic lantern is out which adds extra features. think in practice there's very little in it. All are great cameras...

Anyone else got this to work? I've tried ordering by adding both from the following URL as outlined by the OP, but it wont take the £25 off even if I go all the way to the end of the checkout -

i wouldnt believe anything snapsort say, they often miss loads of features....it at best gives a very rough guide and is better than nothing

there is very little to choose between canon and nikon, canon has more lens in their range, but then again how many lens do you need, nikon usually offer better deals. if you buy either make you wont be disapointed. to say one is better than the other is like saying my £1 coin better than yours.

i went for canon myself

Thanks for your comments guys, edging towards the D5100 at the moment after watching a few youtube reviews and a comparison made on snapsort.........now to find the best deal.

Cheers and happy new year.

I've just got one of the Amazon online chat guys to add the discount manually.

I already had a 600d awaiting dispatch from Amazon so you've just bagged me a tripod for £3.50, happy days! X)

Thanks lugyno1!

If you've got to wait for payday you can't afford it! Crazy attitude to money.

Magic Lantern can't be beat. ;)

I "downgraded" from 7D to 600D because of ML.

I don't do much video shooting, ML is good for much else too.
