Canon Rebel Kits at Amazon as Good as Most Black Friday “Doorbusters”

Canon Rebel T3

As I have been perusing through the Black Friday ads this week, the one thing I’ve noticed is how underwhelming most of the DSLR “doorbuster” deals have been.  And how Amazon’s ordinary prices are inline with these Black Friday deals.

For instance, almost every major brick & mortar retailer is selling the Canon Rebel T3 at $479 as some kind of huge deal.  It was $478 on Amazon earlier this week and is $468 at the time of this post.

Amazon is offering a free basic backpack and an 8GB memory card with several Canon Rebel kits (e.g., T3, T2i, T3i), most of which are already cheaper than what’s you’ll find if you happen to make it into a store at 4AM and find them in stock.  Throw in the Transcend 8GB card and basic camera backpack, and you’ve got all the more reason to stay inside on Black Friday.

Canon Rebel T2i Review

The Canon Rebel T2i (aka 550D outside the US) is the follow-up entry-level DSLR to the great Rebel T1i. Even though the T2i follows just one year after the release of the T1i, it is not the typical, incremental upgrade you might expect. The Rebel T2i packs a whole lot of firepower for both still and video shooters. To see whether the performance matches up to the spec sheet, read on. [Read more...]

Canon Rebel T2i Availability Update: In Stock

Canon Rebel T2i

The recently announced Canon Rebel T2i is currently in stock at B&H Photo here.

It also looks like Adorama has the Rebel T2i in stock.  Amazon is still showing it as a pre-order; however, that should change soon if both B&H and Adorama have it on hand.

This is the first shipment of the Rebel T2i since it was announced, so it may not last long.
