I've been looking for a DSLR and this deal looks good from Currys with a free case and extra battery. Quidco also have 10% this weekend for Nikon purchases from Reserve and Collect Currys purchases so possibly £27.90 cashback on this.

Hi!
I am not a tech person. Could anyone please tell me what lens is this? is it AF-P or VR|| and which lens is better. Thanks
It doesn't mention VR in the info and the lens in the pic isn't VR, I'd go in store if you can and see for yourself, they may have used a stock pic.
this is not the vr kit. I asked in store and they stopped retailing the vr kit before xmas
still a very good deal, great camera for the money
Gutted my son bought this on wednesday and there was no bag with it from currys. Looked online and theres one in next town to us. Is it possible to return to currys and buy from another branch?

Easiest way to return the item would be to buy the camera and case from the Currys in the next town, return to your local Currys with Wednesday's invoice and return the unopened camera you just purchased.

Honestly, the bag is trash, i saw it in costco

Honestly, the bag is just fine. I've owned it for over 6 months and it seems OK.
Great price. My D3200 and kit lens was £400 alone at the time.
Price is pretty much on the money

- the accessories give this the edge over others - own a D3100 and a D3200 so this has to be better ?!?

- another advantage of buying Nikon (or Canon) is that the lens mounts are substantially the same as the old 35mm jobs, although auto-exposure and auto focus almost certainly won't be compatible

-good if you happen to have some old "film" kit
- added advantage being the 35mm lenses give a longer equivalent focal length (a 70-210 appears 105-315)
- disadvantage if you're looking for wide angle, your 28 becomes almost "standard" 42mm)

If you want extra batteries, be aware (on D3100 and D3200, and so probably the D3300) it *may not* recognise it as being "genuine"
- I had to "flash" a patch on my cameras before it would use ones I'd bought on Fleabay, this will of course goose your warranty, but you'll pay a tenth of the cost for the pirate cells.
Nikon D80 used, about 100£ anywhere. Nikon 50mm F1.8 80£ new. Bonus: option to use any Af or AF-s lens. minus: no video (who ueses it anyway).

The trend we see in new Nikon bodies is dumbing down and adding useless features while they scrap compatibility with AF lens

Sorry i shouldnt have said its trash, i meant i wouldnt chase getting one returning kit just to get a deal with the bag. It is fine im sure, but a good camera bag has padding and a rain cover, the nikon bag a asthetically good and serves well as an none bulky carrier im sure.

​Any suggestions please on a reliable site where I can purchase used cameras for a decent price? Thanks
Personally I would go for the Jessops deal, for another £10 you get the new af-p vr lens, as well as the nikon bag, spare battery and lens cleaning pen. Still a great price though!

I've currently got a D5100. Worth upgrading to this? How useful is the guide mode for a newbie? I've bought books for my 5100 but I generally find easier to learn by doing than reading.

There's not much to gain really, image quality may be a bit better but you'd see a more pronounced difference by putting the money you'd spend upgrading into saving up for a new lens instead.

Yes you do get the extra 12 months with Nixon as long as you register within 30days of purchase. Just registered my sons.

The issue I have is that I'm still relatively inexperienced when it comes to cameras. I'm still on camera phone (albeit a rather good one). I do have a visual arts background having studied it at degree, but photography was not my specialism. I want to get much more into it as I'm frequently envious of all the excellent photos I keep seeing and want mine to look as good. As I say, I have books I use for my d5100 but I don't manage to retain the information I get them from easily. If guide mode is good for beginners to dslrs then that to me is worth the price as I don't tend to use my 5100 much as I get frustrated easily when I have no idea what the settings do or how much I need to adjust each one.

Taking great photographs has very little to do with the camera and much more to do with the one holding it. I'd suggest you try one of the online photography courses (there's a few good ones to choose from and are in the region of £0 to £30) . I use both a dlsr (d3200 actually) and a point and shoot (Sony RX100) and some of my favorite shots are taken with the point and shoot because that's what I had on me at the time, a good photograph is more about good composition and interesting subject matter. I've seen pictures taken on iphones that have blown me away, I wouldn't up/down grade from a D5100 to a D3300 personally.
Why are people getting this and not the Jessops deal?! I'm wanting to buy but, Jessops appears a better price. £289 with a VR lens.

Frequently have I taken really well composed shots, only for them to come out incorrectly exposed or blurry due to the wrong settings. I've read countless books, manuals and even attended reasonably expensive courses. Nothing has helped and from what I've seen of guide mode this may well be the one thing which helps.

A lens with VR will give you better images (reduces blurring due to handshake) at slower shutter speeds (i.e. in low light) so is therefore more flexible and if the price diff is marginal i'd go with the VR lens. you could also look at a site like dxomark.com/ and compare the different lenses you are considering.

You could I suppose, go into a shop and try out the guide mode see if it does what you need but I'd strongly recommend you save your money and join a local camera club or sign up to a good online course with practical photo assignments or even just watch some youtube tutorials about the different camera settings. If you rely on guide modes or auto modes you'll never really learn why some shots work and others don't. Either way - Happy snapping :-)
