    Thumbs up Can DigitalRev be trusted?

    Digitalrev are selling the canon 600d for 299 or 349 with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens Kit with free p&p!

    Is this a good price?
    Whats the catch?
    & is there a better camera for that price on the market at the moment?

    Literally can't find a better deal in the UK! And from watching their youtube reviews I'd rather buy from them than places like currys and argos etc. Genuine team of people.

    They're based in Hong Kong, so you should legally pay VAT at 20% and you could get stung for that by customs. There's no duty on digital stills cameras but if it was another product you'd have to factor that in too. Also, as it would not have a UK warranty you need to think about the hassle factor if it goes wrong. Canon UK would not touch it. Are you basing your opinion of how genuine they are on the likeability of their video presenter, Kai? He isn't the guy in the shop.

    They are all great until something goes wrong. Although I do buy stuff from the internet, complex expensive stuff that might need back-up is best bought locally from a reputable authorised official dealer or shop imo. Use them or lose them.

    My last two cameras were bought locally. One from Currys which cost about 30 more than the best internet price, which was Amazon not a Chinese based seller. The other was bought from a camera specialist who offered the [not advertised] manufacturer's special offer of a 150 part exchange for any scrap camera, but also paid good money on top for the camera I actually wanted to exchange. You don't get service like that from the chains or internet suppliers and the deal was better than I would have got on the internet.


    I should add that I do support the local shop fairly regularly but bought the one camera at Currys because they had it in stock and the specialist was not a dealer for that brand [Fujifilm].

    I recently bought a Nikon grip from a Hong kong dealer arrived within ten days and was a genuine product huge saving over any Uk seller and no further tax was paid. Should anything go wrong with it there may be problems. But it is a very simple device and should not have been priced at its UK value for what it is.Not an object I wil use a lot so will probably last for ever.
