I've just noticed in the small print 'offers are valid between 29th October and 4th November'. I've edited my post accordingly.

I got a mini brochure with a newspaper for offers 15th Oct to 4th Nov & it shows this camera for £249.00 on pg 34 of that leaflet.

Can you possibly paste a copy of your leaflet so people can take it in-store ? :)


Camera is £249 until 28/10/08 according to web - so I guess it will go down tomorrow - worth taking a look as this is a fantastic camera for that price.

I think this is the one my brother has & he loves it. Now OP has amended start date I think that'll stop any potential cold voters who click though link - I try to get there first to keep it nice & warm ;-)

Great price..

Great camera as an entry to the Nikon system. However, limited lens capability (and no live view which is essential to me). Hot voted.

Thanks for noticing it didn't kick in until tomorrow and highlighting the Argos voucher offer making the deal even sweeter.
All we need now is the £40 cash back deal to kick in and we'll get the bargain of the year. Rep added.
#8
Quality camera, had mine for about a month but nout used it much yet as not had the time to get out and about apart from taking some shots of the moon a few weeks back
#9
Heat and rep, this is seriously gonna tempt me.
#10
Nikon cash back starts this week end, so it will be a very good deal. :)

Only expired summer offer currently listed on their website, but there was a pdf download to claim £40 cashback. Just need to check if it goes live for Autumn Offer this weekend as < ScurvyDavid > has mentioned >http://www.nikon.co.uk/sites/cashback/default.html
#13
Hmmm so that would make it £184 .... plus the £10 argos voucher ..... is this too good to be true ;-)
#14
COLD, payed £2 less than this a couple of weeks back.

Just kidding, great value from a great retailer!

If anyone has any queries about the camera then just PM me and i'll try to help!
banned#15
You can get it for £209.99 anyway, i'm still happy with the sony a200 deal, better camera i reckon.

Come on Scurvy are you winding us up, or is this a fact + any links please :thumbsup:
#17
Good deal but not a good camera..
#18
Can a Sony really be better? Whats worst with the camera then?
#19
Don't FORGET that Cashbackkings.com will give you 1.5% cashback too.

Its not much but is still better than a kick in the nads.:)

For those that dont know, its very much like quidco and is free to sign up. They make their money by taking the first £5 you earn on cashbackdeals every year. Anything over £5 is yours (my mate has made about £200 so far - I've only amassed £9 to date though !)

Doh! Only bought mine 3 weeks ago, paid £219 which was a good deal but not as good as this :x

For any of you who just have a regular digital camera, the move to a digital SLR will blow you away. Being able to take 3 photos, with flash, in about one second... rather than the usual "point, aim, shoot, wait 3 seconds for 4 or 5 flashes to go off and the photo to be taken, by which time your subject has either moved, trotted back into the forest or put her clothes back on" is brilliant.

And buying from Argos means you can always take it back if you don't like it.
Voted hot. Great price. And a great way to give SLR a try.

Just remember, these are heavier beasts to carry around then your regular cameras. Are you really going to want to lug one around with you ? (If so, get a decent case at the same time.)
#22
nggg this or the amazon sony alpha200? hmm.

i will have to make a choice in the next couple days i think.

There's a linked offer that you can buy the Nikon SLR Bag for half price if purchased with this camera (ie for £20)

Don't know how that compares in price to other retailers :thumbsup:

After spending most of the day researching the net the balance of opinion goes with the Sony, that is unless you are a brand snob then it must be the Nikon

think I will stay with the Sony - ordred last night at £5 more than it is now, and Amazon have canned their price reduction promise :x

just by it online and your covered under the distance selling act :whistling:

Cancellation periods

The regulations give consumers an unconditional right to cancel an order. This is to allow the consumer the opportunity to examine the goods or consider the nature of a service.

If a consumer cancels an order, written notice must be given to you by:

* goods – seven working days from the day after that on which the goods are received by the consumer;
* services – seven working days from the day after that on which the consumer agrees to go ahead with the contract.

If you fail to provide consumers with written confirmation of all the required information, then the cancellation periods can be extended up to a maximum of three months and seven working days. If the missing information is provided during this time, then the cancellation period ends seven working days beginning with the day after the full written confirmation is received by the consumer.

Where a contract is cancelled, the consumer must ensure that reasonable care is taken of any goods received and 'restore' them to you. This does not mean that they have to return them - unless you stipulate this in the contract - only that they make them available for you to collect.

You must refund the consumer's money as soon as possible and, at the latest, within 30 days of receiving the written notice of cancellation. The consumer may, at your discretion, be charged the direct cost of returning the goods, but you must tell them about this in the written information you give them.

If payment for the goods or services is under a related credit agreement, the consumer's cancellation notice also has the effect of cancelling the credit agreement.

Yes maybe if ordered online and delivered, but then only if unused.

If using reserve and collect then DSR do not apply, and most will use R&C

Great camera as an entry to the Nikon system. However, limited lens capability (and no live view which is essential to me). Hot voted.


i got this camera and it is trully great.

about lens: only AF-I and AF-S lens will autofocus because they have built-in autofocus motor. this is one of the reason why this camera is so small and light: no anti-shake, less autofocus sensors, no autofocus motor in the body, no top display.

the camera is compatible with any older nikkor lens but it wont autofocus with them. not a big deal for landscapes, focus manually and look for the light in the bottom left of the view finder. it turns on when you are focused

i dont think someone who buys this camera will ever want another lens but the standard 18-55mm and maybe something like 70-200mm. i made the mistakle to buy a non brand widelens kit on ebay and it actually has a narrowerr angle than the standard 18-55mm nikkor

it is a great camera for people who want to experience SLR. light, loads of auto settings and manual presets, easy to work with even without anti-shake.

i was about to buy a Sony A200 but i went in Currys and I saw what a load of rubbish it is. it is like all sony consumer electronics: big and hollow. i once opened a sony sound system and it was 90% hollow inside. i bet that A200 is the same.

stay with sony mate, although an A200 has better specs than D40 it never takes better pictures, why?
#32
if i ordered £100 in vouchers with cash would i get a £10 argos voucher? If i did this twice i would have £20 in vouchers making camera £204!! When you buy the camera you would get another £10 voucher to spend on something else. If the £40 cahback comes in this weekend then this camera is effectively £164 with a £10 argos voucher!! Am i right in thinking this?

A friend has this Nikon and it is a great camera though I think just about superseded by the Nikon D60. Anyone considering this please don't be put off by the (relatively) small megapixel count because unless you are wanting to print big or heavily crop it won't make any real difference. Another friend I have shoots with a 3 yr old Canon 350D and takes amazing photos - it's not just about the tech specs.

However... the A200 is also a good DSLR (I have it myself) and is most definately not "rubbish". MajorCockUp, I will bet you a million pounds the A200 is not 90% hollow inside - do we have a bet? :)

now you got me scared.
and of course i was exagerating a bit, but play a bit with d40 and compare it with a200. something just isnt right about looks/wight of that camera.
i would like to do a real-life shooting comparison with the 2.

I've just reserved this online for store pick up at my local Argos, it shows up at £249.00, but if its reduced overnight, you pay the price at the time you pay in the store, so it will be £224, brother works at Argos so i get 10% discount and have a £5 off voucher Argos sent me for using my argos card, so all in hoping to get this for about £198.

I was looking at the Canon 450D, but its over £400, so I can't really justify the extra £200+, its my first DSLR, so I think this will be a good entry level into DSLR.

Anyone know the best memory card to use with this? reviews say it takes upto 4 GB SD or SDHC ? was gonna get 4GB, just if SD or SDHC are best for this ? does anyone using this camera know how many pics you can get on a 4 GB card?

I posted another deal here detailing the most interesting offers..
#38
The D40 is a decent camera without doubt but the A200 is in a different league, arguably better than the D60 even. Its won TIPA camera of the year for its class.

If you want the Nikon this is a decent deal but for the same money, IMO, the A200 offer is brilliant.

it takes up to 4gb sdhc. i have a cheap 4gb sandisk SDHC and a 2GB SD Ultra 2 for taking quick shots. this camera takes up to 2.5 shots per second if all requirements are fulfilled (fast memory, enough light, nice smell, wind from behind, no annoying sisters about).
you dont need sd ultra 3, it is too fast for the amount of data this camera can write in one second. unless you want to shoot raw.
