    Hi I want to buy my first fancy camera and I've seen the 600D for about £350 there whereas it's £450 on amazon. The catch with digital rev is that it's not an official canon warranty.

    Would you recommend I buy from digital rev for my first DSLR or should I stay safe and go for Amazon?

    Subbing, looking at a lens that's about £50 cheaper at Digitalrev so will be interesting to hear if anybody's had any experience with their grey imports :holmes:

    I've spent about £2k with them in one go. They were fine. My dad has used them too without problems.

    Took about 6 days to deliver direct from Hong Kong, well packaged with metres of bubble wrap. Was marked as a digital camera (true) and valued at £52 (far from true, made me laugh at the time). You get a warrenty that works through digitalrev rather than through Canon.

    Only issue I had, the charger supplied was an american 2 pin style, and while an adapter had been included in the box, it didn't fit properly, I bought one from Maplin for £5-£7 and its fits perfectly.

    Also look up HDEW cameras, another grey import, but with a UK base and some things can be cheaper although it has less choice to start with (saved close to £500 on one lens from there).

    At the end of the day, I'd use both DR and HDEW again.
