Bargain!

hot

Cold. Obsolete 1930s tech.

I used to own a 400d but sold it as using my Smartphone camera was so much easier from a practicality point of view. However after recently looking at some pictures I took with the 400d nine years ago I'm still amazed by the clarity and quality of a base spec SLR. Very tempted by this.

Price looks very good, not much spec difference to the previous model 650d which is currently £260 on Amazon. I also have a 400d and been looking to upgrade. The 700d has video which is another tempting option to play with... Smartphones are way more practical and give great results day to day straight from your pocket. DSLR are good if you have an interest and want to put effort into getting some amazing shots, the best of which will blow the smartphone away..... if you put the effort in first! Just my view!

A smartphone doesn't compare to this in any way. I've got the LG G4 and it's the best camera I've seen on a phone but it's stil nowhere near my Canon 70D

£260 for a used 650D or £220 for a new 700D is a bit of a no-brainer though, if you don't mind the higher initial expense. Canon are great for cashback though, I've claimed on it last year and this year and both were paid without any issues.

Usual stupid comment from person who never posted any deal...

How does this compare to the 1200d? I'm looking to get a camera and need a macro lens (100mm) I believe and not sure what to go for. I've also been advised to go for a ring flash too.

Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM is what you want for macro.

Has quite a few extra features, such as articulated rear touch screen (also higher resolution), higher ISO settings, more cross-type focusing points, slightly wider viewfinder coverage. Whether these are worth £40 to you, only you can judge.

Can get a cheap Canon 'clone' ringflash from eBay, e.g. ebay.co.uk/itm…704?hash=item4af5114d38:g:pFoAAOSwwE5WYXFU

The biggest feature that will help with macro photography is the articulating screen, which will make composition easier. In terms of image quality, there won't be a huge difference.

Tempted to get this with a budget 10-18mm wide zoom. Total price will still be less than wide zoom for my Fuji.

What type of macro photography are you looking to do?

got a nikon D3100 tempted to swap for this...

Still waiting on a full-frame deal I can't say no to
..

If you are comparing quality of this with a smartphone then you need a "smarter" user but in terms of convenience then it's another discussion

Cheers OP!

Same price on the official Canon website as well.

It's actually dental photography. Clinical images.
Currently have a old camera and struggling with the focal distance.
John Lewis have a few offers on the 1200d. And have a sigma 70-300mm lens but don't think that's good enough.

Ps I'm a noob as you may realise from the comments above so forgive any incorrect terminology.!

In which case the articulating screen is no real benefit. I get good results with an old Canon 400d, 100mm Canon macro lens and ringflash as given in the eBay link previously. Your 70-300mm lens won't give you great results. Get the Sigma 105mm as recommended - gives you a decent working distance away from the patient, and can be used for anything from close-ups of individual teeth to full face/profile shots.

Can get the body only from Amazon for £199, with £20 Canon cashback to give £179. The John Lewis deal for camera plus 18-55 IS lens for £269.99 is pretty good, but depends on whether you actually want/need a standard lens.

Would highly recommend the free FutureLearn dental photography course futurelearn.com/cou…ice

I already have this might get this as I want another body saves changing lenses while on a shoot. Although may help for my dual view video setup. I was thinking of getting couple of LUMIX 4K cameras though for video. Any suggestions between them for YouTube video

That's a good price drop, especially with the cashback. More than enough camera for most people and tonnes of lenses available.

Cheers OP. How is this not hotter???

HOT! Great find OP.

OOS now

As far as I can see, the canon £319 includes the cashback, which is instant when buying direct.

Yep, out of stock and the Canon website price already includes the cashback so you can't claim separately after purchase. Shame, I could've done with a cheap body as a backup for my main Canon dslr

It only says save £100 and no info on the Cashback.

Weird that you can get to the canon shop page selling the camera from the cashback page yet there is no mention of it already including the cashback. I think it must include it though as other models would be vastly underpriced if you could get the hundred pound cashback on top.

Ah, looking again they must include the cashback taken off as the reductions on each model match up with the cashback amounts available. Shame.

I think it would be very misleading if the canon website included the cashback but didn't explicitly mention it. It did cross my mind though. There is a huge jump from the 700d to 750d and normally manufacturers stores aren't as competitive as independents.

please expire

It looks like the double-cashback items have it pre applied as a "discount" and the single cashback comes off at the checkout.

OOS

can the cashback come from buying this from 'anywhere'? i.e another site?

OOS. Expire
