Refurbished Canon SL1 with 18-55 IS STM and 1-YR warranty for $350

Another “take pictures with” kit among the refurbished Canon DSLRs that might be of interest for a first DSLR, perhaps for kids/teens since it is a bit smaller than the typical DSLRs, is the manufacturer refurbished black Canon SL1 with 18-55 IS STM with a 1-year Canon USA warranty going for $350 with free shipping. You also get a free badget bag and 16GB memory card. The white color scheme is out of stock.

PS: they also have an option with the 70-300mm non-IS non-USM added for $40 more, but how much that makes sense on a smaller DSLR without in-body IS, is up to the buyers to decide 🙂

    I can recommend this deal personally. About a year ago, I ordered an SL1 refurb, body only, from Canon for $330. I wanted a second body. I considered that a very good buy then and still do. Looked and worked like pristine, brand new. The current deal with kit lens thrown in is even better. The bundle with 18-55 kit zoom and 70-300mm telephoto is also a good deal, IMO, even if the buyer doesn’t bother using the 70-300 that lacks image stabilization unless or until he/she has a good tripod. At the long end, in my experience and with my hands, a tripod, bean bag or other prop is a good idea in any case.

    Also, anyone who gets one of these as a first DSLR or first non-smartphone camera should take a look at David Busch’s encylopedic Canon EOS Rebel SL1/100D Guide to Digital SLR Photography, about $25, and his Compact Field Guide for the Canon EOS Rebel SL1/100D, $14.39 (at Amazon this moment). Anything you want to know, anything you need to do, will be explained in detail — often elaborate, wordy detail in the former book, and with blessedly quick-‘n’-dirty brevity in the Field Guide. The latter is also small and thin enough to tote in a medium or large gadget bag, and it lays flat. Really good deals all around.

    • indeed! new photographers these days have it so good! abundance of cameras at affordable prices, lots of educational material easily accessible, and so on! Back in our time…
