Canon 650D price glitch?
on: March 29, 2013, 17:27:53 PM
Just spotted this offer: http://www.ebuyer.com/494861-canon-eos-650d-body-eos-650d-body?%20tricks%20for%20students

Can anyone tell me if they think this is a) a genuine offer (whether a price glitch or not, I mean more in terms of being ripped off) and b) if the camera is actually any good.

I have a standard lens for my 350D, so I'm assuming I could just use that rather than fork out for a new one

Thanks!

The lens would be interchangeable yes. Looks like a price glitch though!

They took it down as quickly as it went up I think, it wasn't even on HUKD as far as I could see. no chance she would have got it at that price though.

£30 or something daft like that, they'd obviously dropped a zero somewhere.

you'd be better off thinking about buying a new lens over a new camera body since you've only got the kit lens at the mo

if you want something inexpensive I'd recommend getting a nifty fifty... it's cheap, plastic and a prime lens (so you'll have to zoom with your feet)... and yet its, in some senses, one of the best lenses cannon make. You can get some really nice sharp images, you can shoot in low light conditions without having to ramp up your ISO settings, you can play around with the wide aperture/shallow depth of field....

more bang for your buck than any other piece of equipment you'll ever buy IMO
