Canon 20D dslr camera Beginers

Postby davadvice » Sun Mar 18, 2012 8:33 am

Hi,

Looking for some advise on the above camera. I'm Buying it for my daughter and just wondering if it's worth £200 assuming it works ok?

my daughter is just starting out and i don't want to drop much more in the event that this may be a fad. if it is i can then use the 20D as i'm intrested in photograpghy.

Camera comes with 28-80mm lens and new canon battery grip, two batteries and 1GB memory card.

any advice would be appreciated.

thanks
David

I'd say that a pretty fair price, IF, as you say, it works. The battery grip alone, if genuine Canon, is worth at least £100. Worth a punt, I'd say.

Just out of interest, where did you buy it? I traded one in recently at Merchant City Cameras and am wondering if that is it.
