If you’re pondering weather or not to take your first steps into professional photography and are looking for a great budget-deal for your first DSLR camera, you’ll be glad to know Canon and Amazon are providing an exceptionally good deal on a Canon EOS Rebel kit. The retailer is now offering a Canon EOS Rebel T5 body, accompanied by a Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II zoom lens for the attractive price of $399.
Not only that, but if you go one extra step and add the free accessories option available, you’ll also get a 16 GB SD card and a camera bag, which is pretty much all you need to go out into the world and start shooting photographs. Granted, the EOS Rebel isn’t the best body out there, but for the price, there aren’t many options that come even remotely close. The EOS Rebel is equipped with a 18 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor powered by a DIGIC 4 image processor and is perfectly capable of recording 1080p video footage too. Considering that the above mentioned items would normally set you back around $600, this is one bargain deal indeed.
Additionally, if you want to go the extra mile, you can also purchase a 75-300mm lens to go along with the starter kit for an extra $100, meaning that for a total of $499, you’ll be getting a capable budget body, two lenses, a bag and a (admittedly small) 16 GB SD card. Not too shabby, especially if you’ve been interested in photography but your smartphone’s camera just isn’t doing the trick for you. You can find additional details about the discount and the package deal on Amazon’s official website.
