    Default Digital SLR deals?

    Anyone come across any decent deals on Digital SLR's recently? We quite fancy the Nikon D3100 as it's been recommended by quite a few people and we're on quite a tight budget at the moment. I know there's the D3200 out now but neither of us are bothered about having the latest toy, just something that's going to do the job and last well. Our only must haves are a lens (obviously) a memory card and a carry case.

    Is it cheaper to buy the camera & lens combo then buy a memory card and case from eBay?

    i have the canon eos 1100d got it new £375 with a 18-55mm lens and a 16gb memory card its a ok camera and a lot cheaper than a d3200 ok the 3200 has more options but they come at a price you can get a scandisk 32 gb memory card in the asda for £20 sup it all depends what you want it for what put me of from buying 2nd hand was a hell of a lot that are selleng them dont state or know how many shutter counts the camera has done the av camera will do 150 thou now it may sound a lot but think of it this way depending how old the camera is you go for or who has owned it and the use its had some peeps will take anything up to 200-800 photos a day if there at a motor sport event etc .

    Check Ebuyer, DABS or Amazon for deals.

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    I bought my Nikon D90 a couple of years back as a white box factory refurb with only 1000 shutter activations on it from Ebay. It's basically been faultless except an issue with one of the motors in one of my lenses a month or so ago.

    Only downside to this is you do only get a VERY limited warranty which to be honest I wouldn't trust as far as I could throw.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. I think I might pop into Jessops (or similar) next time I'm passing and have a play with the various brands and models then get onto the price checker sites to find the best deal.

    Does anyone know roughly how many shots you can get per Gb on a memory card? I know it varies depending on the resolution you're shooting, file format etc.. but a rough idea, for everyday photography would be handy as there's no point buying a 1gb memory card if it'll only hold 10 pictures and at the same time I wouldn't want to spend a fortune on a massive stick that I don't really need.

    as said asda are doing a 32 gig card for £20 ok its not a top end card but it will do np for jpeg photos etc also you have to rem its not only what photos you can fit on the card the norm is around 600-800 shots on a fully charged battery but that will drop depending what size of photos the camera is set for and if your shooting in jpeg or raw , and its not all about pixels the lens is a big big factor in it ,also take int acount your going to need editing software ps photo shop aint cheap , gimp 2.8 is free to use also photo bucket do there own photo software and you can use photomania on face book to
