I rarely miss the zoom etc from my old bridge camera (panasonic fz200). My nikon d5500 is so much nicer to use with far better IQ. But its personal choice of course. I would probably favour a compact with large sensor over a bridge.
I agree: if you can sacrifice the zoom the RX100 Mk3 ( 4x zoom) is a good compromise in the range between the pricier newer models, and the lower spec older models. It is lightweight and portable, has a large sensor, a viewfinder, a tilting screen and a quality lens. Ideal for backpacking, or a phone with a highly rated camera is always an option of course. A smaller camera is also more readily concealed too, an expensive looking DSLR can draw the attention of the local thieves, wherever you are.
It will be an issue for small claims court, but it will cost hundreds more before resolved and even then they’ve breached the data protection act by sending a company laptop to a scumbag tech site (lol) will probably be years before it’s dealt with- until then I’m down a laptop and hundreds on top. The worrying thing is from reviews I’ve read- I’m not one of a handful of people (seems to be pretty common with argos)
That's bonkers! Cant believe they've got away with this. Can't think of who could help...trading standards?
i have got a D3100 NIKON , will this work with all the kit i have ? ie, lens and flash and so on ? ty for any info
Agree worth checking to save a trip back but there should be no issue returning for full refund within 30 days if not satisfactory. Had loads of camera gear bargains in Currys over the years they've never quibbled on stuff returned even when I just changed my mind after buying on impulse.
Let me guess, you’re a Sony user.
wow. fantastic price.
They do. if you want a proper camera you should stick with a VTech

Great price! I went for canon eos sl2 (200D) recently. If only nikon had been posted earlier...
The Bluetooth is painfully slow and not proven to be reliable. It is still easier to use a card reader moat of the time
Great price. I picked up the predecessor (D3300 with VR lensfor £250 a could of years ago). The big advantage this has is Bluetooth for connecting/transferring photos to a phone. I've got the WiFi connector but it's very temperamental. If people are new to photography it's well worth doing a night class (or two!) to learn how to use it; even budget DSLRs are immensely powerful and versatile. Shame not a VR lens but you get can pick up additional ones reasonably cheap of you don't mind grey imports (I got a VRII 55-200 for £95 delivered - I'd post a link but it falls foul of HUKD). Prime lens is next. 7dayshop is good for spare batteries and accessories. EDIT: with respect to the Canon Vs Nikon debate, I don't think it really matters, just get the one you like the look/feel of (I've got a Nikon, but Canon have slightly more 3rd party lens). Also, don't get hung up on the number of megapixels - it's all about sensor size. A 18mp budget DSLR will annihilate any 20-30mp camera phone in lower light conditions.
This seems like a great website for comparisons. I often find it when I am googling cameras. I think any SLR is good as long as you are getting out there and taking photos.

Anyone recommend a good case/bag for this camera and VR lens??
I still have my D50 I got a 50mm prime for it when I bought a d5100, which I am finding limiting and seriously considering the d500 now The 3xxx series are nice cameras I think it was worth getting a 5xxx due to the fully articulating screen, been very handy
Can anyone link a decent carry bag, not too bulky? Extra points for Amazon or Argos, need it before Tuesday to take on hols. Cheers
Looks like a fair deal. Ordered the VR. My little TZ60 got sand in the lens last month forcing a replacement. I'm going for a bigger camera this time, hopefully it will not be a mare to use! If any one can link a newbies guide to dslr cameras, please do! Heat added

its arrived just charging the battery, whats a cheap/decent longer lens around 200mm for it please?
Just received an email saying it’s been dispatched and will arrive today Sunday. Was initially Tuesday but I’m not complaining Update Mine has arrived (highfive)
True, I was slightly swayed by the better controls of the d7000, as I find the menu diving of entry level models quite frustrating. But, the camera is for my soon to be 9 year old son and the d3400 will be more than enough for him. I cancelled the D7000 :)
D7000 is only 16.2mp the D3400 is 24.7mp
Same here, got an email saying it would be here on Tue, cracking deal for £306. Was literally on the verge of paying Currys £430 yesterday for it but it was oos

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.
£20 extra for the VR version of the lens is the better deal IMHO.
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.
great camera but again go for a vr lense you want regret it

those that aren't going to buy another lens would generally be better served with a quality compact but you know someone is going to jump in and shout NIFTY FIFTY a few times so i'm sure a prime will be an option before long an occasion in the dark says people to me, shutter speeds suitable for people dont need vr at these focal lengths not everyone wants to lug a tripod about and not everyone wants to pay and extra 20quid they dont need to not sure if this camera does multiframe but i'll assume not as you ignored that - can obviously do in post if needed though
That's great for you then, but not everyone wants to lug a tripod around with them to any occasion taking place in a dimly lit room or after the hours of 8pm. Getting a couple of extra stops of exposure without having to bump your ISO into the range where noise creeps in is a genuinely useful tool in a great many situations, people who already know they're going to use a prime or tripod don't really need to listen to my advice about VR but for the new buyers these entry level DSLRs attract who may never buy another lens or accessory for the whole time they own the camera, the extra couple of notes is a no brainer.
well i'm more a use the right tool for the job kind of guy its easy to handhold that focal length at certain speeds but those speeds aren't any good for any motion if there is no motion then i can use a tripod or multiframe shoot or use a prime or whatever
So I'm guessing "shooting in less than ideal light" has never entered into your shooting habits.

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.
Whats the difference between VR and none VR? Looking at getting it from Argos due to discount through work.

What is the point in posting "I got XXXX for £XXX" without any further information? :/ Guess what I got a Gold Plated Bugatti Veyron for 50p once.
They have always been good in-store, if you google it though, it seems if they make a mistake with their pricing then they do not honour it. I've purchased from Wex and Amazon before where they have done the same and both have honour their prices, even though they had made a mistake. Really good trade in allowance from Wex also, they will collect your old camera free of charge and if you are not happy with the offer they make then they return it free of charge also.
ok thats a bit crap but doesn't automatically make them worse than wex
Wasn't so much screw up, just bad customer service. Purchased a camera through them as it was a bit cheaper than elsewhere. My order was promptly cancelled, with the excuse that my card didn't meet their security requirements (never had problems anywhere else). They advised that I could order over the phone instead. I rang them up, I was then told the camera I had ordered was out of stock, but they did have another camera I could order instead. This was the exact same camera but with a different stock number but at a higher price. As they wouldn't honour the price they had advertised I went elsewhere. A better company such as Amazon or Wex would have honored their price (can vouch for this, having dealt with them before).

I agree...but it's such a close call. Canon 1300D and lens are cheap (body+18-55mm, 70-300mm is less than £400; the next alternative is NIKON D3400 with just one kit lens that's around £378 + 70-300mm lens is around £100+. I am migrating from NIKON D3100. So you can imagine it's quite a complicated choice even after consulting lots of comparison websites.
thats one - there were at least 4 things mentioned why not look for yourself if you dont believe the posters are giving you a comprehensive roundup?
Yes but it may be inferior in one but not in all category. Like I don't care whether D3400 has a microphone port or not which D3300 clearly has!

May get cancelled if it does come in stock it’s £289 for me.
Well I've now got a delivery date of Friday. They also seem to have removed these from Amazon's inventory so no more Nikon D3400s for cheap.
Ordered one of these on 16th November and still out of stock. Reckon I am wasting my time keeping the order open?

Has anyones that was out of stock arrived yet ?
The big thing about the 7000 series is the focus motor. Opens up a world of AF-D lenses, some of which are cheaper and better than their AF-S counterparts.
Yes the kit lens stepper motor is impressive with its silent operation, which makes it good for video. Image quality is on par with the d7200 in similar conditions after running both side by side. Had not noticed the lack of mic jack personally. Didn't notice this is the vr version, not sure how much difference that makes to video but does allow a little more shutter speed / less iso in lower light shots.
￼calibranat wrote: No ois but does 60fps at full hd for 30 mins VR is built into the lens and the lens has a stepper motor, so silent zooming. Only thing is, no mic jack on this, strangely the older D3300 has a mic jack. D3300 & D3400 image quality quite a lot better that D3200 (no anti-aliasing filter).

"Ranting"? (lol) It takes a disproportionately HUGE amount more than a mere comment from a stranger, regarding the colour of a camera to cause me to even consider losing my cool; maybe you took offence when none was handed to you? If you stop and think about it, offence is EASY to find when you're out there looking for it and over-analysing simple comments. Remember - just because YOU don't agree with what someone says, doesn't mean they're "wrong" or that they're "ranting" - it merely indicates the obvious; this is a text-based medium with no tone of voice - I am sorry you took offence, it wasn't on offer, sincerely. Take it easy, have a lovely weekend :)

This is a great price for the camera with the VR lens, most this price don't include VR. I'd rather buy through Jessops or Currys though because ive heard of them. Any experience with this company? Would John Lewis price match??
Any reviews on Camera World? Any good?

£10 more in camera world with the VR lens and John Lewis have just agreed to price match and include the free bundle! Wow!!
Probably the Panasonic G7, it has 4K and a sharp kit lens: http://www.camerapricebuster.co.uk/Panasonic/Panasonic-G-System-Cameras/Panasonic-Lumix-DMC-G7-Camera-with-14-42mm-Lens . It's currently £400 with £50 cashback (£350 total price). The canon quoted above is good too, but I'm not a fan of the tiny viewfinders on the lower end Canons.
Look out for a deal on a canon 200D, was £439 yesterday (body+18-55mm lens). Dual Pixel Autofocus can't be beat+ the lens has optical image stabalization and is silent (STM). [Edit] The body also has 5 axis digital stabalization and you get a fully articulated lcd screen
Can you recommend a camera thats good for video too? Budget £400
I'd imagine that without image stabilisation it would be super shaky / jittery.
