DSLR DEALS

Canon SLR cameras are on fire this week! Get a good deal and maybe some free stuff when you purchase one of these hot little numbers.

Canon Rebel XSi

Canon Rebel XSi


Best Buy has the Canon Rebel XSi body with an 18-55mm IS lens and a Canon 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III zoom lens for $999.98. Best Buy has the retail value of the entire package as $1134.98 saving you $135.

No need for two lenses? Get the XSi body with just the 18-55mm IS lens for $899.99.

OUR TAKE: "...the XSi will unquestionably win converts to Canon with its (still) excellent AF system, super-smooth CMOS sensor with very impressive high ISO performance, and (for some users, at least) reasonably functional live view system." (DCR Review, 5/1/08)

YOUR TAKE: "The pictures I've taken so far came out really nice, clear, bright... The LCD is huge for the size of the camera. Set up was very easy and very simple to get used to! Highly recommend!" (submitted by newtocasio)

Nikon Coolpix L18

Nikon Coolpix L18


Target has Nikon Coolpix L18 for $129. I did find it cheaper online (Beach Camera: $120.95) but it's always nice to be able to use your camera the minute you buy it. Features include: 8 megapixels, 3x optical zoom, 3" LCD screen, automatic red-eye removal and face-priority autofocus.

OUR TAKE: "The new model does, however, offer face detection, red-eye reduction, and Nikon's D-Lighting technology. Like previous variants in this series, the L18 runs on AAs, and a super-simple Easy Auto Mode returns for the new offering as well." (DCR Announcement, 1/28/08)

YOUR TAKE: "Pics of flowers are better than in magazines. Crisp, clear, pure. Professional looking." (submitted by Tracie)
