Nikon D3400 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit - $383 USD No Tax !

Deal Link:
Price:
$383 USD
Retailer:
Eglobal
Seems like a great deal. This goes for $650 + tax normally. I have read reviews on eglobal central and have not come across any horror stories. Seems to be legit!

I pulled the trigger on this (as well as a LG G6 from them). Will update this thread once I receive the items.

Tempted by this, I want a basic DSLR or mirrorless camera for my wife and I to take better indoor pictures of our 3 month old. This may fit the bill.

This, camera would be great for baby pics, but if you were to and a 50mm fixed lens will be amazing.

NOTE: Since the company is probably NOT an authorized Nikon Canada reseller, Nikon Canada will not service the product either in warranty or out of warranty (ie. you pay for it). Have a look at the following link from Nikon Canada on their grey market policy - https://www.nikonimgsupport.com/ni/NI_a ... lang=en_CA

Yeah, I was tempted by the bestbuy a6000 deal but that is now out of stock and this is still a bit cheaper. It is a little bulkier but we would mostly be using it indoors. This is the lens you mean, right? https://www.eglobalcentral.com/nikon-af ... enses.html

Sorry, I meant a 35mm... 50mm is too close for portraits. http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/nik ... 19995.aspx?

Also, I have an old D3000, which is the great, great grandfather of the 3400. Mine (and possibly the 3400, need to confirm) does not have an internal focus motor so standard AF lenses do not work. The AF-S lenses have an internal focus motor within them. They cost more, but your lenses need to have internal motors or the auto focus will not work.

Yes but you need to send it to them and who says that it will be fixed by Nikon?

If you are going to buy from these guys, I would get the MACK warranty that they offer for a few extra bucks so that the service centre will probably be somewhere in Canada (still not Nikon but at least the travel time will be less) and you'll have a 3 year warranty.

Not too bad of a price but no warranty with nikon is a bit disappointing.

I would add the cost of an external flash to whatever your budget is. While higher ISO is not bad with the D3400, an external flash is a much better tool for indoor pictures, imo. Your 3 month old may be stationary now but won't be that way forever. Flash will help you freeze the motion/avoid blur without having to use high ISO.

Also worth noting the D3400 doesn't work with any lenses with an aperture ring.

Just purchased this, paid extra for insured delivery, hopefully all goes well. I'm looking to get into photography, complete novice, and hoping this is a decent entry-level camera.

Mainly want to use it for landscape or food pics. Would this be a better camera or A6000?

This was estimated to arrive yesterday, now there is a customs clearance delay. Hope I don't have to pay more or something...
