Already one of our very favourite entry-level dSLRs, Nikon has made its D3100 camera all the more alluring by offering a £40/€50 cashback deal when the camera is purchased in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Billed as the smallest and lightest Nikon D-SLR yet, the compact D3100 is a hugely capable snapper, packing a DX-format, 14.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor, with a new image processing engine doing all the clever stuff behind the scenes.
Running from 1st March – 4th May 2011, the deal is applicable to cameras bought in the UK or Republic of Ireland, and claims must be received by 5th June 2011.
