Black Friday is just around the corner but if you're looking to get your holiday shopping in early, and have a digital SLR to pick up, Black's is giving you the chance to buy early to avoid the rush. Until November 22, you can pick up the popular Canon EOS Rebel T4i with 18-55mm IS Kit Lens for $679.99 -- down from a MSRP of $899.99 and a good price for the 18MP shooter. Though obviously not as compact or subtle as a new mirrorless or 4/3's camera, those who still prefer the tried, tested and true interchangeable lens system will want to jump on this one.
Those with a T3i or even T2i might not find much here to upgrade to but if you're in the market for your first digital SLR, this is a very good price on a newer Canon model. Some of its main selling points include:
- 18.0 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) Sensor
- Canon's DIGIC 5 Image Processor
- High-Speed Continuous Shooting at 5.0 Frames Per Second
- Enhanced EOS Full HD Movie Mode
- 3" Vari-Angle LCD Touch Screen
Last holiday season, the then new Canon T3i went on sale as low as $650 so it's unlikely we'll see a better price on the newer T4i this year. Though it is possible to see a further price drop, quantities for a special like that would have to be very limited so you can save some time and peace of mind in buying now.
The deal is live now but expires on November 22.
