The Canon direct store is offering some great deals on several refurbished products. Refurbished Canon products are usually new or just like new, so there is nothing to worry about when making these purchases. I have personally bought five Canon refurbished products and never had any trouble. The cost savings are usually significant.
The first offer I want to highlight is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 110 HS for $59.99 with free shipping. I personally bought one of these cameras for myself and one for my dad. I’d always wanted an ELPH for their combination of tiny size and great picture quality. A few years ago these cameras were consistently in the 300+ price range. God bless the ever falling price of technology. Compared to other cameras in this price range, you can’t go wrong.
- 5x Optical Zoom
- Comes in multiple colors (black, red, gray and blue)
- 16.1 Megapixel
- 3 inch LCD screen
- Refurbished like new
- 1 Year Warranty
Here is how my receipt looked for the 110 HS.
The second deal is for a refurbished 50mm DSLR lens f/1.8 for $70 shipped. This is my favorite lens for taking indoor shots. The image quality is significantly better than lenses I have that costs several times as much. This should be the first lens anyone buys when they take the leap to digital SLR cameras.
Like all refurbished Canon products, this lens comes with a full 1 year warranty.
Finally, you can buy a refurbished T3i 18 megapixel starter kit with an 18-55mm lens for just $336 with free shipping. This is the body that I currently use most of the time I’m just walking around taking pictures. It’s a hell of a bargain that is certain to not disappoint anyone on a budget. This body will launch you into the Canon ecosystem. This is an important first step since Canon and Nikon make the best consumer grade DSLR cameras out there. Other companies make perfectly good cameras, but I wouldn’t want to be out buying Sony or Samsung lenses. I just don’t have as much faith in the brand as I do with Canon and Nikon.
