Savvy piece . I was enlightened by the specifics - Does someone know where my assistant could possibly access a fillable permit search version to edit ?

At about £10 more from Clifton Cameras I'd go for a D5300 with 18-55mm lens. https://www.cliftoncameras.co.uk/Nikon-D5300-18-55-VR-II-Kit/Colour/Black
With the D5300 you get a larger, fully articulated LCD with higher resolution, more focus points, AE bracketing, built in GPS as well as more built-in effects such as HDR and time-lapse recording.
Does the D3400 have a microphone port? The D3300 didn't but I'm not sure about the new model.
D3300 has a stereo mic jack. No mic jack on the D3400.

The D5300 is a bit heavier than the D3400 and the battery life is much improved, but in most other respects the D5300 is either as good or better for not much more money.

EDIT - Actually D5300 even cheaper with AF-P 18-55 just £385 + delivery at Hdew: http://www.hdewcameras.co.uk/nikon-d5300-kit-af-p-18-55-vr-4216-p.asp - that is a way better deal.

Edited By: Spod on Sep 06, 2016 15:14: Found better & cheaper option.

Regardless, this is still an £80 saving over other retailers.
The higher ISO capability on the 3400 may also be useful
whats the link for the D3300 at £280 ish with the VR lens? mostly 300 - 350 as far as i can see.

At jessops for £329.99

fantastic to start off

Good price but the 75-300 lens is a pile of pants. I'd suggest either:
a.) Get this deal, sell the 75-300 and buy the far superior 55-250 lens.
b.) Get hiyathere's £329 deal (above) and buy a 55-250, as this will give you three good and varied lenses which cover most situations.
100% agreed !

looking for a decent entry level dslr having just gotten rid of my eos_m with this telephone lens, the noise did completely ruin videos and the auto focus was terrible but that could've been the camera

I've recently purchased the canon 700d which came with a 18-55 stm lens and it is silent.Also I was lucky enough to buy a new 55-250 canon stm lens from Amazon for £112 and canon are offering £20 cash back,so it will have only set me back £92.Again that lens is silent and the auto focus is fast.

That said if you don't want to record video and you would use a tripod then this deal is an ideal starter kit.

Price isn't anything special......
I bought this watch last month. It was £66 on Amazon and i bought it through Flubit for £57..... Its a nice looking watch but its big at 49mm, doesn't bother me though as i like big watches. White hands can be lost against the white face, sometimes hard to see the time. Bracelet cannot be changed for a different strap, as it doesn't have conventional spring pins but the bracelet is decent quality. Also main second hand only moves when using stopwatch function.
I dont think its worth more than £60.
£60 each
Bought this 3 years ago nearly to the date. Actually bought 2 from Amazon for £60 delivered. One for myself and my best man at the wedding. Don't let the price take it away from the watch. Cracking solid piece of kit. Got plenty of compliments when I wore it but do be awry as the outer edge of the face tends to fade and become discoloured. Worth the £75 but no more

£179 is the cheapest price for the 55-200 (unless you are talking grey imports).

70-300 is much better I agree but is currently £419 on it's own.
nikon d 3300 camera and 18-55mm lens is made by Thailand , 55-200mm lens is made by China , both lens also not VR
No vr? On a telephoto lens?
Sure, I have money to throw away
TK42
D3300 + 18-55mm = £279
55-200mm Lens = £179
= £458
Saving = £78.

£180 for the 55-200mm lens? Gedoudda here...

I would advise anyone looking at this to wait and go for a slightly longer telephoto - the 70-300mm is amazing and really worth the extra money (I got an open box one from Currys Ebay for £200 a little while back).

this or a canon 700d for video?
All the reviews I have read, (majority were comparing the Canon 700d & the Nikon D5300) have stated the Canon with the STM Lens is the winner for video as the lens is a lot quieter when focusing.
I opted for the Canon in the end and bought it last week. Not had ample opportunity to test the video capabilities yet but initial opinion on camera is superb. My first DSLR so I can't comment with any great informed authority but I'm absolutely delighted with it so far.
700D was on at £399 with Argos last week with free bag, also £40 cashback from Canon with their summer promotion up until end of August. So all in for £359.99 in the end.
Worth noting- John Lewis price matched for me so went with them instead (just personal preference) and Jessops also offered price match a few days later but I'd got it by then
This one with the free bag here:http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4447346.htm
Is £689.99.
But this one here:http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/1024470.htm
Without the free bag is now rather £399.99.
Which of the 2 was it?, as the difference in the prices of the 2 is quite significant ..... thanx.
Hi sorry missed your question. It was the 2nd one with the 18-55mm lens

John Lewis refunded the difference within 5 days & Canon cashback took about a week.

Edited By: portreekid on Aug 13, 2016 10:53: Additional information
Re Nikon D3300 / D5300: For video you need the new AF-P Lens (with stepper motor), most reviews will be with the older lens.

Wow, what a price. I bought mine from Amazon a couple of months back and love it. Make sure you get a good prime lens as well for the perfect combo (I've got the Nikon 35mm one). The Nikon 55-200 is a great lens as well to go with this. Along with the kit lens it gives you good options for different scenarios.
I've been looking at prime lenses for once my other half as got over the shock of this purchase. I've heard good reports over the 35mm and the 50mm. Any recommendations for one over the other?
I recommend the 35mm for a mixture of everyday use and standard casual portraiture. I went around all of South America and Europe with a Tokina 11-16mm and the Nikon 35mm as my two travel lenses and wasn't disappointed. I tried a 50mm but it just felt slightly too long for everyday use, although it was possible to make shots look quite intimate using it. Best way to find out which one works best for you might be to stick the kit lens on the focal length of each for a day or two.


I agree i own both those lenses and they are pretty much all I use.

Try not to all laugh at once.... but I currently own a Nikon D80. I really want to upgrade to this (especially as I'm going to a wedding this weekend and was planning on taking my D80) but I need to justify to myself the cost of the upgrade opposed to waiting.... someone persuade me?
Nothing wrong with a D80 mate, Im still using a D90 my next upgrade is with going to be the D7200 or I might go mirrorless, but i wont be doing that for a while. its prob worth investing in lenses than a new body, unless the body is not allowing you to achieve what you need.

Where does it say 1 month warranty with amazon ?


Might have got that wrong. Marketplace place items are not covered by Amazon at all, they would need to be returned directly to Proking in Hong Kong .
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=1161010
Where does it say 1 month warranty with amazon ?
1 month warranty with Amazon and then 11 months with Proking who are in Hong Kong. With the previous deal the warranty would have been with Nikon UK for 24 months.

PS If you are not worried about the warranty then you can buy this cheaper from e-global for £107.
No Warranty.

It's the one sold by Amazon (bottom right, says Sold by: Amazon). Looks like it has gone up to £177.65 now though. May pay to wait a few days as Amazon prices do fluctuate somewhat.

Are you sure you got lens for close ups? It's a telephoto lens which is best for shooting from afar..? As far as I'm aware of course. No expert. Just enthusiast.
It works great for both in all honesty. I am as you mentioned also no expert but learning with each set of photo's I take in RAW and editing.Have a look at these
I was under the impression for a few weeks that the 55-200 was only for distance shots until I came across the above.
I rarely use the 18-55 now
Oh wow okay, gotcha. Thanks for that. Really interesting. Think I'm going to have to try this out!

I'm guessing if it will fit a D3200, it will also fit a D5100 ?
Yes no problems with D5100, fits any Nikon DX body.
I'm guessing if it will fit a D3200, it will also fit a D5100 ?

Yongnuo YN-568EX II TTL Master HSS High Speed Sync Flash Speedlite for CANON
Thanks @Wentoabetterplace that is the Flash that I have.
I also have a mk 1 Canon 430EX and a 430EX II
I have had the Yongnuo for a while and it performs as good as my Canons in every way.
I also have a couple of Sigma 500s which i have had for quite a few years and they still work fine.
I just have no need for a manual flash I guess. But for a £20 saving it just doesn't seem worth it.

It's a shame Yongnuo don't make a compact Speedlite to compete with the 90EX or the 270EX II. I imagine there must be a very healthy market for such flashes - especially as the Canon ones are relatively pricey.

I'll probably just get another 90EX from the Far East for my EOS M, and just stick on a diffuser. Not ideal - but better than nothing (and cheap :) )!

why would anyone want non-TTL flash - I really don't understand it. Another 20 quid buys you a Yongnuo with all singing and dancing TTL - wireless, etc and a manual option too!!
I have 2 TTL flashes so added this as a off camera option and serves that purpose perfectly.


​maybe handy for off camera flash??

Which model of Yongnuo are you referring to?

Probably this one as it's £20 more than the one in the deal;

E-INFINITY £843, used them before.Excellent.
It's a Grey Import so not the same deal as posted. Deal posted will come with Nikon UK Warranty and support.
As I can't find a UK registered address fro E-Finity or a VAT number on their website, I presume that it is a grey import.

The price above as far as I am aware is for a registered UK supplier.

I won't get into discussions on Grey import vs non as it has been gone over many times before all over the web.

Yes you can get cheaper via grey import, the question is whether it is appropriate for the individual concerned.

For a UK market lens, in my opinion it is a very good price.

Only problem with grey imports is you have to send the item back to the original country to get a repair.. After being stung myself I wouldn't buy grey imports for things like cameras and phones.

I can see that, but in my experience the amount I've saved on very high-end lenses means I can afford to drop it once (and have!), pay for the repair and still have paid less than I would have if I'd bought in the UK. I've never had to send a camera or lens back for a fault.


​I totally see your point and it's all down to the sums. Personally if you do your research and hunt out the deals in Europe and UK you end up finding official imports almost as cheap. Plus buying when canon have cashback from authorised sellers means you get extra off anyway.

Plus, IS wont help much with a moving subject.
Oh yes it will, I use a 5D III and IS really comes into it's own with rally cars for example.

And you're recommendation? Don't day a 6D because that's my back up body and in a lot of respects that's the same.


Oh god no, not a 6D for sports!

Assuming you're not wanting to spend 1 series money, then it's a 7D (Mkii) for pure speed and the crop factor actually becomes an advantage.

Don't get me wrong, the 5D series are wonderful. Just not a sports camera.

Got this from Canon.

Thank you for your request and for contacting Canon.

In reference to your enquiry regarding the EF 70-200mm f/4L USM / EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM, we can provide you with the following information.

Our promotion indeed only refers to the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM. Sometimes retailers have special promotions, which are not directly related to Canon. For this reason, we can recommend you to further investigate on this with the retailer. We do apologize for any inconveniences.

The (official) current cash back promotions can be found by referring to the link below:

http://www.canon.co.uk/cashback/current-cashback/?WT.mc_id=web_display:cuk:summer-cb:banner-promopage:link#eligibleproducts

Once again, thank you Mr. ____ for contacting Canon. We trust this information is of use to you. Should you have any further questions, then do not hesitate to contact us again by replying to this e-mail or by contacting us directly on +44 (0) 20 7660 0186, mentioning the service request number on the top left of this e-mail.


Yours sincerely,

J.Porras
Canon Services & Support
Sorry, the link didn't go to the 'Sold by Amazon' page. If you search that lens and then filter the seller to Amazon, it will show the cashback at £110
As above, has been listed wrong. I guess its up to someone if you want to take the risk and see if Canon will honor or if Amazon will substitute the difference.
It would have been a cracking price for a great lens. The IS is nice to have however they are over double the price, for this price it is a fantastic lens.

There are other lenses that have been incorrectly indicated as being on the cashback list. I wouldn't want to chance it.

This one is showing £110 cashback Here

Risking 'troll' accusations, but...

... Amazon are selling the camera at the same price, but with a VR (not II, as far as I can tell) lens.

I am not familiar enough with the Nikon range to judge as to which is the better option.


Fair play. Was more about those that just come on and moan rather than show a better deal. And the Amazon deal is better as the VR lens is definitely worth getting especially at the same price. Amazon dropped the price to compete and it's a great deal. That said, thanks for the post rubberbullets, until the Amazon deal, this was best available
Great find!!!

Taken from Amazon:

"VR is 60g heavier, ~3mm longer
"VR really works. I get about two stops of improvement"

[...]
Although the non-VR is just ahead on-axis at the wide end and full-open,
the VR beats it for transmission, distortion and aberration (but not vignetting) across the range."


I would definitely say the VR if it's going to be handheld.

Sounds the same as Refurbished..
"‘RENEWED' is just a generic term used to describe something that can’t quite be sold as brand new. In most cases it’s just an item that has been returned after a change of mind, maybe after stern words from their better half when they got home. Usually the only sign is a slightly marked box.

Cheaper now than previous deal :p
Ricoh GR is the only real alternative if you want something RX100 size with an APS-C size sensor that fits in your pocket. Slighty better imo but a lot of people prefer the Nikon colours.
One other possible option could be Fuji X-M1/A1/A2 with 27mm prime.

Costs more if both new but can get used for about £300 total. Same sensor size, good image quality and lots of lens options. Trade-off - slower auto-focus I guess?
There's a test of the two here for comparison...

haha! I've had so many refurbs with very hard to spot problems, you need a few days to mess around with it... The old Sony Outlet (and Canon eBay Outlet) used to give you a month and free returns. I wouldn't risk this tbh, Fuji are similarly tight with their returns. I probably ended up returning 50%+ of the gear I bought due to none-obvious issues.

You'd probably be okay with Paypal but life is just too short for messing about putting claims in and waiting for refunds.

Ok, understood. Focus on Nikons re video is rubbish. Temporary spot focussing on something that is the right distance away is the best practice with the D5300 or go completely manual.

I understand Canon may have cracked it on their newer DSLR's, particularly on the new 80D. But nonetheless the D5300 is a great little video camera if you accept it's limitations.
I'm using the vr 80-200 most of the time, but its the focus while videoing that's been a bit rubbish... As you say lenses are important and great lenses aren't in my budget :-(
Forgot to mention D5300 footage grades quite well. It holds quite a lot of info from the shadows. Watch this video from my D5300 to see what I mean: https://vimeo.com/93628154
Don't be too hard on yourself. Some of my lenses are the likes of the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VR (approx £1200) and allow me to get that really nice shallow depth of field. That said a cheapish lens like the Nikon 35mm f1.8G (£150) will get you most of the way towards that.

The biggest mistake folks often make is buying a DSLR with the 'kit' lens. Then they think the photos/video they are getting from this combination is the best the camera can achieve. In reality a kit lens is a bit like a Swiss army knife. It's intended to just 'get you by' in a 'variety' of situations. But much like you wouldn't do DIY with such a knife, you won't achieve great results in many situations with your kit lens..... only mediocre results. To be honest it won't be a lot better than your £100 point and shoot camera with a decent zoom lens.

So if you want those great results, I'm afraid you need to spend money on good lenses.

Here's something I made entirely on my D5300 (audio aside): https://vimeo.com/148279180
So video capability is pretty reasonable. The codec isn't great, but that's true of all DSLR's re video.
Great video, shows the reason I'm getting rubbish video is ... Well me.

put 100 extra and get the whole kit with the 70-300 lens, case, extra battery, and so much more stuff from ebay...
​I am guessing that it will be the 70-300 f/4-5.6g , which is bad optically and will not autofocus with this camera. YOU NEED A CAMERA WITH AN INBUILT FOCUS MOTOR!!!!!! IT IS A CON.

What's wrong with focusing manually? Haven't used a DSLR for a while and now looking to get back into it but from what I remember it's not hard to focus manually. ..


​I'm not saying that it is however this lens is crap on a camera with a bigger viewfinder , I know I own the lens. Add a smaller viewfinder no autofocusing, you have a recipe for bad images. either buy the 55-200 or spend a little extra on the body to get something like the d7000 or d300, which you will actually be able to manual focus with thanks to the big viewfinder and also autofocus.

There is a Tamron lens 70-300 which works fine with this camera - you can get one in a bundle from Jessops
