Canon SL1 DSLR with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens + Printer + Paper Promo Bundle - $479.95 at Adorama

Today Adorama is offering the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens, Canon Pixma Pro-100 Printer, and Canon SG-201 Photo Paper for $479.95 after $350 rebate. On Black Friday 2013 Dell offered the same camera and lens with a small memory card and bag for $649.99. The next best price we could find for just the camera with lens was $400 from Nice Electronics.

The Canon EOS Rebel SL1 received 4.7 out of 5 stars with 243 reviews on Amazon. C|net gave it a 3.5/5 and PC Mag gave it a 4/5. For a more in depth look at this camera as well as a comparison to the popular Canon T5i model check out this review from Digital Photography Review. This is a great camera for a young photographer as it is the smallest DSLR offering from Canon. Those with bigger hands may not appreciate this aspect.

The Canon Pixma Pro-100 is a highly rated entry level photo printer. It received 4.4 out of 5 stars with 288 reviews on Amazon. PC Mag gave it 4/5 noting it may be an entry level photo printer but it "still produces photos worthy of hanging in a gallery".

One of the problems that many people run into when they get their first DSLR camera is that they take hundreds of pictures but then fail to follow through with printing any of them. Enjoying them on the computer screen is OK, but doesn't do justice to the resolution most DSLRs are capable of, unless you have a 4K TV. The print quality of many convenient printing options such as Walmart or Walgreens leave a lot to be desired for most people. Same thing with most consumer printers. They were designed for documents with photo printing as an afterthought. Using a dedicated photo printer brings out the real value of having a nice camera. This bundle gives you a nearly complete package to begin taking and printing photos much nicer than your cellphone ever could. It should be noted you will need a SD memory card to take photos as this package does not come with one. This package would be a great starter DSLR kit for anyone, but especially for a young person's first DSLR experience.

Thanks for Visiting and Happy Shopping!
