This is the deal we have been waiting to go live... and now it is here! There have been some great Amazon Prime Day camera deals so far. But this looks like one of the best offers anywhere on the US site, though, as the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 with 18-55mm lens is to have its price dropped by a massive $165, to take this DSLR kit down to a record-breaking low of just $384

Canon EOS Rebel SL2 with 18-55mm lens: $384 @ Amazon
The Rebel SL2 is one of our favorite DSLRs for beginners. Canon has just added a newer SL3 model, but is keeping the SL2 going as a cheaper alternative – and this amazing 45% discount makes it almost too good to miss. You can buy the SL2 body only, but we recommend it with this EF-S 18-55mm STM lens as a kit.

The Prime Day Canon EOS Rebel SL2 deal...

Canon's pint-sized DSLR punches well above its weight. It's a great camera for those beginning their photographic journey, but it's also the perfect partner for travel photography – particularly with the 18-55mm STM lens, which is neat, fast to focus and delivers good performance.

Boasting a 24.2MP sensor and 1080p video recording, it also comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth built in. Photographers new to DSLR shooting will appreciate Canon’s guided shooting mode – it's so user-friendly that we think it's the best Canon camera for beginners… and we even rate it as one of the best cameras for kids.
