At £309 it's as cheap as it's ever been (not seen it at this price for a while), with the added bonus of £40 cash back claimed through Canon.

**ADJUSTED - CASHBACK ENDED*** Still the cheapest it's been in a while for the body, and the joint lowest price it's ever been.

My bad - it's still showing on the Canon website, which is a little naughty!

eGlobal would have to be half the price for it to be of interest - absolute nightmare of a company to deal with warranty wise (talking first hand here).

​have you purchased from eGlobal before? I have, and I can tell you claiming on warranty is a nightmare. it's not a manufacturers warranty, it's provided via eGlobal. If you're lucky enough to get them to honor the warranty, you have to cover the postage costs to HK and wait weeks for your item to be returned.

I could sell you a broken mirror with a 100 year warranty inc breakages. Doesn't mean I'd have to actually let you claim on it.

Interested to know exactly which bit of its technology you consider 'Extremely' outdated?

For anyone who was thinking of paying a similar amount for Canon's current entry level model - the 1300D, the 700D just about beats it on all meaningful functions >>
Weather sealed
7 FPS Burst
19 Focus Points
Faster max shutter speed
Articulated flip-out screen
Pentaprism viewfinder
Higher resolution screen
External mic jack

Fantastic Camera - had mine for 3 years

And I would also seriously implore anyone buying this to consider Amazons 3 year Accident & Breakdown warranty for just £30

My last 2 cameras broke in years 3 & 2 - got full money refunded & upgraded to latest models both times (_;)

Well when it comes close to a Sony mirrorless or Fuji and they open their eyes to the future like evf and live view then you can argue the point. This is old school digital camera tech. 7fps?!

Mirrorless vs DSLR is an entirely subjective things, each has their pros and cons.

​it's also significantly less than any Sony mirrorless, and equivalent Canon glass is cheaper than Sony's offerings - just to put it into perspective.

I'll agree that mirrorless cameras like the Sony A6300 have some interesting features such as the 4k video & 11fps burst, but its simple tiltable screen is a bit behind the times compared to the Canons fully articulated screen
...and it costs 3 times as much as this deal !!

Or the a6000 which is £450 with decent pancake zoom which makes the total camera minuscule for better Iq and with reference to fully articulated screen or tilting screen, the sonys have remote apps that you can use your phone as a remote screen and shutter release etc so much more independent of the camera than a canon articulated screen

What's video like on this? Also what lens would people recommend? I've heard people say a 50mm 1.8 is good with this camera for filming?

Unless you're invested in the Canon ecosystem, go with Nikon instead. Comparing this to a D5500, the difference in quality is just night and day, especially if you're into tweaking RAW images to get the absolute most out of your shots.

I think you have put the spec for the 70d there? I upgraded from the 700d to the 70d a few months ago. Both excellent cameras.

I'm going to the Arctic circle to see the northern lights, would this be a good buy? I think someone also mentioned the a6000, would that be suitable too or not as it's not weather proof?

​I'd definitely go DSLR there - weather & cold doesn't bode well for mirrorless, and minutes temperatures drain the batteries. Depending on budget, this & Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 would be a solid combo.

I have an omd em-5 (original model) but it started taking black pictures randomly. it was sent to repair but no fault found (now the WR lens had been sent off too!) And I'm loathe to miss that perfect shot hence buying another camera. I'd prefer pentax but they go for silly prices now.

Pentax K-1, 15-30mm 2.8 (10% when purchased with body), 12 months 0% ;-) The value of the K-1 is unreal, but the dynamic AF tracking of moving objects in low light is top priority for me, hence having to stick to Canon...

For what you're doing, lens choice is going to be equally important. What's your overall budget?

Video is solid, and being able to tap the screen to get the camera to refocus on that point. As for lens recommendations, a 50mm 1.8 is great for getting blurry backgrounds and for low light use, but it's quite a tight field of view and the lack of zoom means it's not going to be great for everything, for example filming in cramped spaces.

Putting aside the D5500 costing over £200 more, "night and day" is a bit of an exaggeration. There's undeniably a difference in quality, but people overstate how bad Canon's older sensors are and in the hands of beginner photographers, it's going to be a while before sensor quality becomes the main bottleneck after lens quality and the photographer's own abilities. The most important thing is buying a camera with the features you need and that you feel comfortable using.

A) I owned a 100D, with the same sensor as the 700D, for almost a year.
B) I get to shoot with a D7200, which has the same sensor as the D5500, about once per week.

So yeah, I've shot a lot with both sensors and played with the RAWs from both. The difference is there, as I said before, but it's not substantial enough to dictate the entire camera choice for beginners. There are larger factors than being able to leverage some extra DR in my opinion.

For the sake of showing I'm somewhat objective, I now shoot with neither Canon or Nikon as my personal camera.
