Strange choice of lens sizes
Edited by: "Dave_dave69" 1st Apr
Good lens for beginners?
Bargain the 10-18 is worth 200 alone

nowt strange about it
I'd rather pay this money to get a used 750d if paying this kind of money

Well, £240 if you buy from Argos !!
This deals a far better choice than the other 1300D with the 70-300mm lens
And you can get around £40 back by selling the 'Share Station' on ebay - technologically redundant

Good lens for beginners?


I had the 600d with standard 18-55mm lens. Also bought the 50mm 1.8 lens at it does great portrays shots. But when i go weddings (not as a professional) I have to take the 50mm off and put the 18-55mm back on to take group shots. Otherwise on 50mm of have to stand really far back and lens also only focuses on an individual and blurs people behind.

I'e decided to now sell the 600d and buy the Nikon d600 full frame camera. Have 50mm and a standard lend but it looks so much better. Went to a restaurant opening the other day with my friend who' a photographer he let me use his sigma art 35mm and 85mm lenses. Picture were so nice and crisp. He carries the 85mm and 35mm lenses and says they cover everything blue needs to do.

So 35mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.4 are on my list

You can Google any lens Flickr gallery to see the shots people took and see if you like them.

Here's an example

Looks like a good bundle. I'm looking for a camera but really am a newbe so no idea. Prefer to buy from Amazon right enough for their easy return policy

Do you think this is a good deal for someone new trying to get into the camera game!?

The 10-18mm lens is an STM Lens, not sure they’ve done another version
Brought this today and can confirm the additional lens is the 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM (so the latest version). All came well packaged in a big brown box - inside had the Connect Station (in retail packaging - good if you want to sell it on) and the camera in a dual-lens kit box.
How does this compare with the Nikon D3400 is it a similar level budget DSLR?
Are Cannon generally regarded as better DSLR for like to like models off Nikon cameras?
No mic input otherwise would have snapped this up..heat added

Neither brand is definitely better than the other, it varies entirely on price point and the buyers needs. The D3400 is the better camera in this instance, it sits roughly in between Canon's four digit (e.g 1300D) and three digit (e.g 200D and 700D) models in terms of market placement. The big advantage here is the additional lens- the 10-18mm is an exceptional lens for very little money.

One of Canon's biggest draws for beginner and amateur shooters is their collection of excellent and affordable STM lenses, they have a sub-£200 ultra-wide (10-18mm), tele (55-250mm) and a bunch of primes (24mm 2.8, 40mm 2.8, 50mm 1.8) that are all tack sharp.

It depends what type of filming you are looking to do, but it doesn't give you much flexibility with frame rate - if you want to go slower than 24/30fps you need to drop down to 720p, and even then it only offers 50/60fps

I'd rather pay this money to get a used 750d if paying this kind of money



Would the 750d come with 2 lenses? A body does not make a camera.

"18-55mm & 10-18mm Lens"Strange choice of lens sizes



Not really. 50-250 and 70-300 lenses tend to be the normal kit lens. Which means there are plenty about to add to your bag pretty cheap. The 10-18mm is less common so a more expensive additional purchase.
This is a pretty good deal, as mentioned, the 10-18 is an excellent lens. I sold one recently and even second hand it went for £155. Really sharp and punchy lens. Bit of a shame the 18-5 isn't the IS version, but that's not a massive deal. The camera itself, although Canon's starter range, is so good that the rate limiting step in quality of images will be the photographer, not the camera. A more expensive crop sensor camera might give more facilities but won't actually take pics that are a appreciably better - the only way to do that is with a full frame camera, which would be massively more expensive, and also a good bit heavier to lug around.

The only real limitation with this camera, for some users, is that they won't take an external mike for video. The built in one is OK, but it's optimised for voice, so a video for music will sound a bit flat.

If you want to use video autofocus then forget SLR cameras. Go for mirrorless instead. Sony are good.

As above, go for something mirrorless if video is your priority. Sony and Panasonic are particularly good for video usage.

Or compare New 1300d with nearly new 750D. So A grade £370, 18-55 £40 and 10-18 £175. £575 not so good an option now.
Grade A 1300D with 18-55 and add the 10-18. Is £275+£175. £450 used!!

Arguments in favor of the Canon EOS 1300D:
  • Less heavy: Is lighter (by 70g or 13 percent) and hence easier to carry around.
  • Longer lasting: Can take more shots (500 versus 440) on a single battery charge.
  • More affordable: Was introduced into a lower priced category (40 percent cheaper at launch).
  • More modern: Is somewhat more recent (announced 1 year and 1 month after the 750D).

Reasons to prefer the Canon EOS 750D:
  • More detail: Has more megapixels (24 vs 17.9MP), which boosts linear resolution by 16%.
  • Better video: Provides higher movie framerates (1080/60p vs 1080/30p).
  • More detailed LCD: Has a higher resolution rear screen (1040k vs 920k dots).
  • More flexible LCD: Has swivel screen for odd-angle shots in portrait or landscape orientation.
  • Fewer buttons to press: Has a touchscreen to facilitate handling and shooting adjustments.
  • Faster burst: Shoots at higher frequency (5 vs 3 flaps/sec) to capture the decisive moment.
  • More heavily discounted: Has been on the market for longer (launched in February 2015).

You don't have to shoot the 50mm wide open, I tend to stop it down whenever I take group shots and it copes admirably. Of course, its forte is the beautiful bokeh you get when used wide open with portraits.

Do you shoot in auto? I would usually shoot in aperture priority mode so I can control and use a higher f-stop, if the camera was deciding to use 1.8 at all times it'd result in blurred backgrounds without a doubt.

I guess what I was trying to say is that the CS100 is no longer available from the Canon store, the latest update was June 2017. The deal is a deal even if you ignore the inclusion of the CS100...

Yes. I put dial on P. Worked for me most of the time. Always required me to put the flash on though to stop pics being blurry.
On the Nikon d600 I can take pics without the flash and still get great results. I have the 50mm 1.8 now but ordered the 1.4 so I can use use in even lower light condition and still get great results

I haven't played around with those settings. Lol. I was going to swap lenses on the d600 too. But as you say if i do learn the stops I can do it all with one lens. I hear some people just use the 35mm or the 85mm lens on their Nikon cameras
Check for best camera prises in
eglobalcentraluk.com
Delivery fast, no duty and customer service ok . My self i saved at least £500 in last two years. as i like new technologies and i change my camera twice already .
If any one know cheaper place than eglobal pls write in a coments . Thank u
Would this be ideal for someone just starting out, not sure if photography is for them, just wanting to get their feet wet? From some of these comments selling the station & 10-18mm lens would make it around £200, could perhaps then get a cheaper lens to play around with as well as the other one that comes with it, 18-55mm
