Sun: refurb Canon D-Rebel XS w/18-55 and Extras for $220

Good until Sunday 11:59pm ET, Woot is offering this refurbished Canon D-Rebel XS bundle for $220 with free shipping for Prime members, or flat shipping for everybody else. The bundle includes the DSLR with the 18-55 IS EF-S II lens, two converter lenses, 32GB SD card, camera bag, and lots of trinkety accessories.

Also part of the Woot daily deals is a refurbished Fire and Kindle sale which includes Fire tablets going from $25 to $60 [how tablet prices have fallen!], and a handful of e-book readers as well going from $23 [with or without Touchscreen) to $160 [6-inch Oasis with free 3G). Or the Voyage for $100 if you prefer tactile page-turns [in addition to the touchscreen].

    Ah, it’s oldies but goodies time at Woot! (Is that the Happy Days theme I hear playing in the background?) It was 2008. George W. was laying low in the White House while Hilliary Clinton, Joe Biden and Barack Obama vied for the Democratic nomination as the economy hit the skids on its way to the worst collapse in 80 years. And in June, Canon introduced its newest and quite spiffy entry-level DSLR, with CMOS sensor and 10 megapixel resolution, the Rebel XS.

    Seriously, the price is fair, considering the extras, except the supplementary lenses, and this could be an excellent introduction to photography beyond smartphone snaps for young people. It could also be a good second or third backup camera, especially for someone who has invested in Canon EF and EF-S lenses. And, it could be a good walk-around, knockabout camera for almost anyone. Properly refurbed, I’m sure these will serve many people well for years. So, let the good old times roll. 🙂

    • yeah as long as one does not want the “smartphone features”, the differences between DSLRs year after year now are smaller than it used to be during the early Wild West days!
