Cameras

Canon

The EOS 1500D just dropped in March and is the most affordable Canon DSLR yet, at only S$729 with an 18-55mm kit lens. It shoots with a 24MP sensor, comes with built-in Wi-Fi and NFC, but only captures Full-HD video. Comes with a free 16GB SD card, 32GB microSD card, camera bag, and tripod.

The EOS 800D is an upgrade option if you want something more than a beginner DSLR but don’t want to splurge too much on one. Canon’s excellent Dual Pixel AF lets you capture shots easily, even if you’re shooting through the LCD screen. 45 cross-type AF points help you nail the shot when shooting through the viewfinder. But like the EOS 1500D, the 800D only shoots video in Full-HD. 

You can grab the 800D at S$899 for the body only (price after cash back, U.P. S$1,049), at S$1,099 with a 18-55mm kit lens (price after cash back, U.P. S$1,249), or at S$1,449 with an 18-135mm kit lens (price after cash back, U.P. S$1,599). Comes with a free 16GB SD card, 32GB microSD card, camera bag, Google Home Mini, tripod, LPE17 battery, and S$150 cash back.

The EOS M100 is the most affordable mirrorless camera in Canon’s stable. At S$699 (price after cash back, U.P. S$799) with a 15-45mm kit lens. Go up a bit and you can get a dual lens kit bundle at S$849 (price after cash back, U.P. S$1,078) with a 15-45mm and 22mm lens. Comes with a free 16GB SD card, 16GB microSD card, LPE12 battery, camera bag, and S$100 cash back.
