Eyeing a new camera? The Canon eStore currently has the refurbished EOS Rebel T4i kit on sale for just $389.99 instead of its original price tag of $499.99. Shipping is free as well.
Just to give you an idea, a brand new version of this camera actually typically retails for 1,159.98, as evidenced by Sears‘ retail price! So even though it’s refurbished at the Canon eStore, you’re still saving money than 50%, which is absolutely incredible for a camera like this one.
Here are just some of the most noteworthy specs:
- 18MP CMOS sensor
- 5.0 fps
- extended ISO range of 100-12800
- hybrid CMOS AF system
- 3″ clear view LCD monitor
- multi-shot noise reduction
- full HD movie mode with continuous AF
It also comes with a Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens. Once you add it to your cart, the following two items will also be included free of charge:
- Camera armor 58mm UV filter: reg. $14.99
- Remote controller RC-6: reg. $27
At Amazon, a non-refurbished version of this camera is actually as high as $734.23 through the marketplace. The reason I bring it up though is that you can read over 750 reviews and the first one posted is definitely worth checking out. It’s rather lengthy but covers all aspects from the look and feel, to the touchscreen, image quality, battery life and other aspects. Not to spoil it or anything but that reviewer gave it a 5/5 star review. It also has a general consensus a near perfect score, so if you’re looking for an amazing camera that is affordable, then this deal from Canon is a worthy contender.
As we have mentioned numerous times before here at Bargainmoose, a “refurbished” status is nothing to shy away from as you can rest assured that the product is in great condition, if not in even better condition than a brand new product. Although the risks of something malfunctioning within the camera are extremely low, anything can certainly happen but you can rest assured that you will be protected for at least a year with Canon’s refurbished limited warranty.
Speaking of reviews, CNET has given the Canon EOS Rebel a 4.5/5 star rating praising the quality of the pictures with the only downside being that: “the feature set remains rather blah, and its photos aren’t as good as the T3i’s at high ISO sensitivities“.
