Was looking at this from a beginners view. Can you explain the difference between the standard lens and the VR lens?
Thanks

You need to understand how the combination of Apperture / Shutter Speed / ISO works. In short VR will compensate shaky hands for lower shutter speed.

Not to savvy myself, but google is my friend:
VR stands for vibration reduction and is what Nikon calls it's version of optical image stabilization. Image stabilization basically counters the camera shake you get from holding the camera, making it so you can use slightly faster shutter speeds than without it. Non-VR lenses do not have this feature, but cost less than VR lenses.
I hope that helps

A general rule is when you take a picture that will be correctly exposed.
To negate movement of the camera you try and use a shutter speed the same as the focal length of your lens or greater.
So a 100mm lens, shoot at 1/100th of a second shutter speed.

VR helps allow you to use a longer shutter speed to gain the same image but typically in lower light. This helps compensate for no tripod or lower end lenses that let in less light. It does not help on moving objects but it is worth having. £20 in this case becomes a £300-£1000 difference on higher end lenses to put it in perspective

Slower shutter speed, surely?
This or canon 1300

Slower shutter speed= more light, more motion blur.
Faster shutter speed= less light, less motion blur.

This is the better overall camera by some margin, while the 1300D has the advantage of having access to Canon's extensive range of excellent and affordable STM lenses, letting you try new kinds of photography or build a versatile kit for comparatively less money. If all you're interested in is taking out the a camera with one all-purpose lens, the D3400 is definitely the better choice, and to be honest I'd sooner buy a used camera from Canon's *00D ranges than the 1300D.

Additionally, with this being a crop sensor camera, the Reciprocal Rule requires that the crop factor of 1.5 (for this camera) should be taken into account, making the example used 100mm focal length and 150th of a second shutter speed.

So, for instance, if a lens has two stops of VR, you would theoretically be able to shoot 100mm at around 1/40th of a second handheld, though that would seriously be pushing it for many of us.

There was me thinking they made virtual reality lenses

VR is much more important with longer focal lengths of 200mm or 300mm as it will allow you to use faster shutter speeds and reduce any image blurring. I have a non vr 18-55mm lens and most of my shots are very sharp. It can help when the light is a bit lower though. It’s worth saving for a 35mm f1.8 or 50mm prime though, (both of which are non vr lenses).

great camera but again go for a vr lense you want regret it

Same thoughts,
Nikon D3x00 ranges have options for VR and non-VR bundled lens for a usage/economic reason.

If you worry enough about low light and blur, because you do these shots, put the £20 towards a prime 35mm or 50mm prime lens which are bright lenses. You will do yourself much greater favour than spending £20 extra on VR for 18-55mm lens as this is f3.5-F5.6.

But if you got shaky hands with up to 55mm Nikon DX format and the bundled lens is what you will ever have (equivalent old school 82mm angle of view on 35mm format) then get the VR lens. You can test how steady your hands are.

£20 extra for the VR version of the lens is the better deal IMHO.
Just tried to buy this but it says code has expired. Anyone know of any other camera deals? I’m looking at a starter DLSR.
