There is is still a while to wait until Amazon Prime Day 2019 - but we have just spotted this great twin-lens camera deal at John Lewis in the UK – and just so those in the USA don't miss out, we have tracked down a similarly tasty twin-lens kit at B&H..

The Canon EOS 200D (aka the Rebel SL2) makes a great cheap DSLR camera for anyone who wants to travel light without compromising on features or image quality. Its 9-point autofocus looks a bit basic by today’s standards, but it comes with Canon’s latest 24-megapixel Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor, for live view autofocus that’s practically as fast as a mirrorless camera’s.

With this particular kit you get two lenses in the box – which offer much more telephoto power than the 18-55mm lens that usually gets bundled with this camera. The John Lewis deal offers you the 70-300mm telephoto zoom, whilst the New York B&H deal pairs this DSLR with the 55-250mm IS telephoto zoom. 

This DSLR has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC built in too, so you can transfer photos to your smartphone automatically for sharing on social media, and use your device to control the camera remotely too. 

Round the back you get a vari-angle touchscreen LCD – that makes it easy to get over-the-shoulders or ground-level shots without breaking your back; and it is helpful for selfies and video vlogging too!

Canon EOS 200D DSLR with 18-55mm & 75-300mm zooms£529 

This exclusive John Lewis deal pairs the tried-and-trusted Canon EOS 200D DSLR with its swing-out LCD monitor with both the standard 18-55mm kit lens, but also the 75-300mm telephoto zoom. Now that adds up to a great looking starter kit for anyone who is looking to get into serious photography.View Deal

Canon EOS Rebel SL2  with 18-55mm & 55-250mm zooms $699

This is a similar twin-lens deal, but this time you get the 55-250mm telephoto lens, in addition to the 18-55mm kit lens. The EOS Rebel SL2 is the American version of the EOS 200D - so the DSLR is just the same (and again in the all-black finish). A nice sweetener with this B&H kit is that you get a camera bag and an SD memory card thrown in with the $699 deal. Nice.View Deal
