If you're curious about buying a refurbished Canon camera, we don't blame you. A refurbished camera will offer exactly the same specs as a brand new camera, but it'll come complete with an often significant discount. If you're tempted by the saving, but apprehensive about buying anything other than brand new, we're here to put your mind at ease. 

One of the best aspects of buying a refurbished Canon camera is that it comes with an identical one year warranty to the new cameras. This means that you have exactly the same protection as if you'd bought an 'ordinary' camera.
