Eh??

Quick look at the Nikon site says "Nikon UK today announces the launch of its new spring cashback promotion of up to £75/€100 for purchases on any new D40 or D80 camera kit, until June 30th 2008".

Not a massive range of autofocus lenses for this and also only 6 megapixel.

I got this camera on a previous deal and I have to say that so far I am really impressed. Very easy to use and the image quality is excellent. The automatic fill-in flash is very good - no read eye, indoor pics look great. I think there is a very noticable difference between pics from this and a compact (even a good one). It is 'only' 6 mp but I don't think people will be disappointed. It is light but a bit bulky (it is an slr), but still feels fairly solid.

If you have used a compact digital, then I practically guarantee you will find this camera easy to use. A great way to step up to digital slr. I haven't used this company though, but hopefully someone will be along to okay them.

Hot, ordered and can't wait to receive. Now need a zoom lense.........

I was thinking who marked it as expired / spammed.

I would recommend the Nikon 55-200 VR lens, it is an excellent addition to the kit lens, you get 15% off this as well :thumbsup:

It has expired because the camera is no longer in stock so the voucher can't be used .

Only valid for instock items
#23
Awh, damn. I've been sat waiting for a new good price to come up on this camera for ages, and it gets posted AND expires the one weekend I'm not online.

Typical...

scroll to the end of the page mate to find the button to buy
#29
Nope, theres no buy button for it - sure you're not looking at a cached page?

If you do a search On their site for it, it doesn't come up - so I'm guessing that even if i did get the button I wouldn't get the camera...
#30
THIS IS NOW IN STOCK AND AVAILABLE ONCE AGAIN!!
don't forget cashbackkings 6.5%!
this gives a total theoretical price of:

£242.43 - £30nikon cashback - £15.30 cashback = £197.13!! I'd be quick because it will probably sell out again quickly

toby

not showing in stock now, no delivery date available!!!!!

ok not in stock, my bad! what i really mean is that it's available to order once again. at a pretty amazing price too (£197 once promo code, cashbackking cashback and nikon cashback have been applied. pretty firey i hope you'll agree!
#33
Before any leaps at this offer (like I nearly did), you should read t_e_b's other thread...

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/174032/nikon-d40-18-55-kit-lens-212-43-inc/

I'd agree with the posters there, that while its a little odd, their 15% off voucher is for items marked "In Stock" (no doubt they are wishing to clear out stagnant items, rather than simply offer good prices on stuff they'll then need to order in.)

As such, the price on here is comparable to Amazons, except for the potentially good cashback sites options.

Personally (as I was intending to buy this camera today regardless), I think I'll go with Amazon and have it with me by tomorrow, rather than waiting an indefinite time for delivery and paying an uncertain amount with the Digi Camera Company.

There's always the chance that with the ever shrinking price of this camera, that there'll be an amazon reduction soon for claiming back on (you can but hope...!)
#34
Just a word of warning to all those that have ordered and received a cancellation notice. They have still debited the full amount from my card and so I now need to chase them for eiither a D40 or my money back.

I'd check your accounts....
#35
They have also declined my quidco, even though it tracked and i havee received the camera
#36
digital camera company now have 30% off, some pretty good bargains to be had, they have quite a few lenses in stock

Not meaning to scare anybody but caught this post today and thought 'even better bargain' until someone added that The digital camera company went bust today!! Yep liquidation!! Just thought I'd post on here in case anyone has items outstanding. The link via cashbackkings.com has also disappeared!!! Sorry to be bearer of bad news!

Please see the posting above................get moving quick or it could be costly!!
#39
Phew , glad I never went ahead with anything .

Hope no-one loses out to a truly dreadful dodgy company if they have been trading openly knowing that closure was on the wall !
#40
Hi,

just to confuse things - as i had heard on here they gone into liquidation so I checked with Companies House at Isle of Man and they confirm the Digital Camera are completely up to date with all thier paperwork and that CURRENTLY THEY HAVE NOT FILLED FOR LIQUIDATION OR IN ANY PROCESS.

IF YOUR UNSURE BUT THINKING OF BUYING RING COMPAINES HOUSE ON 01624 689389.

I not sure who first said they gone into liquidation but be useful if they coud offer some proof...!!
