DSLR DEALS

Here are two great SLR deals this week but there were several sweet deals this week, so shop around for your favorite brand if not listed below.

Canon Rebel XSi

Canon Rebel XSi


Circuit City has the Canon Rebel XSi body with an 18-55mm wide-range lens for $729.97. Get the Rebel XSi starter kit (includes Rebel gadget bag, UV filter, battery pack) and SanDisk 4GB Ultra II SDHC memory card for free with purchase.

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)

Nikon D60

Nikon D60


Best Buy has the Nikon D60 with an 18-55mm Zoom-Nikkor Lens and a 55mm-200mm High Performance Zoom-Nikkor Lens for $849.98.

Circuit City has the Nikon D60 with just the 18-55mm Zoom-Nikkor Lens for $699.99.

OUR TAKE: "The D60 (like the D40 and the D40x) is reasonably priced, robustly constructed, incredibly easy to use, and most important of all produces great images, even for absolute beginners." (DCR Review, 4/21/08)
