Glad you have moved from the dark side @rocky819 . Welcome to the light side, welcome to HUKD Deals and thanks for posting.
I'm a Nikon man.....but that is a good deal.

Well done OP xx
Temped for speedbooster and legacy glass
Earlier in the day you got this price plus a free Canon HL100 bag for it worth £28! Sorry I didn't post it at the time. This is still a great price and Currys will price match it if you prefer to use them (I had an gift card for Currys).

I would lose sleep over that!!! hate missing out on bargains!!!!!!
Only thing I dislike is it's not an IS lens. I had a non IS canon zoom once and ended up replacing it, spending more in the end than if I'd gone for it in the beginning
Seems around this price or more second hand, so this is a great deal!
This much of an improvement over a 1100d? I modified mine removing the ir and UV filters for astrophotography and weighing up whether to get another canon (being left outside for 2 years has taken its toll) or a dedicated imaging cam which will have a lot smaller sensor (as im not made of money) but be more sensitive and have cooling. First thing I'll be doing is opening it up...

Where is the d3400 around this price? Unless you mean second hand or body only?

For the genuine photographers, this camera won't be good enough.

For the casual photographers, a modern smartphone will give not dissimilar results whilst being far more user friendly and accessible daily.

I imagine there are an awful lot of low end cannon cameras out there living in drawers gathering dust!

d3400+ KIT 18-55 pops up at 300 mark all the time during different promos, Or.. you can purchase it for 300 any time from HK grey market..
There's no point buying these used when often the used ones go for more than the new ones...
Great price but just bought a mirrorless last week

exactly. canon need to step up their game BY A LOT!
With GOOD light recent phones such as Pixel 2 will be just as/nearly as good as this camera for the casual user (that is - in good light conditions and if you aren't going pixel-peeping, when the light gets iffy -there's no competition... )
I’m a Pentax man myself!!
lol @ the 'genuine camera users' - this camera is above what most will ever actually need
sure you may want extras but the output from these isn't far off any other camera really (pixels peepers need not apply - thats me included) and for a way into quality photography at a low price the low end canons are the perfect way

It's pretty funny you mention DXO Marks in one post, then go on to say that the Pixel 2 is about as good as the sensor of a DSLR like this. They're completely incomparable, except for that fact they both capture images. Don't forget the smartphone has a fixed focal length, too.

I do believe "the best camera is the one that's on you" for sure.
This is a good value deal for someone looking to pursue their photography hobby.
Canon lenses are low price compared to nikon that was the reason i purchased canon and already have two extra lenses.

The 50mm is fantastic, i used it at friends wedding and photos were fablous thats what i have been told.

I have the hk 50mm the copy one.

What the hell is a genuine photographer ?

Sounds to me like a term someone would use when they are up their own arse/think they are better than the next man with a camera !

There aren't any UK sellers at the moment, put up alert here in HUKD and you will receive a notification once someone posts it again..

Mirrorless is way better than this. Video autofocus is unusable on these low end dinosaur cameras. I'm surprised people still buy them.

I guess it's an opinion, but I would say someone who uses photoshop etc to tweak photos is a 'genuine photographer', whereas someone that points and shoots on default isn't. I imagine the amount of people buying this camera in the former category is limited, so my point was those in the latter category probably would get similar results from a decent smartphone. Hence why so many of these gather dust shortly after purchase.

For reference, I use my phone as a camera. You know what they say about assumptions...

I said genuine photographers, as in people that use photoshop etc.

I agree this camera is way above what most people will ever need, which is precisely why I said most casual users will probably get very similar results from a modern smartphone. Myself included.
