The Nikon D3500 is one of our favorite cameras for beginners, and the one that we tend recommend to everyone who asks us what to buy a college student that is getting into photography. This is a great DSLR, and gets you into the Nikon camera system. This kit from Amazon UK with the basic 18-55mm non-VR zoom lens is now being sold at its lowest ever price - just £289.99. Now that is a perfect last minute Christmas present for anyone who wants to take photography more seriously in 2020.

Nikon D3500 with 18-55mm kit lens £289.99

This is the latest in a long line of superbly built budget DSLRs from Nikon - and the perfect camera for students and beginners. This deal is £190 under the recommended retail price, and the lowest we have seen this combination at since launch last year. UK dealView Deal

This combination is around £10 cheaper than it was over Black Friday - but if you are looking to spend a bit more, then also look at some of the great twin-lens kits that are being offered on the D3500, that gets you a telephoto zoom as well as a standard zoom (see table below for current pricing)
