Awesome Camera

It is a good camera for one level above starters. The features are ought to be learnt. I would suggest you to visit for learning about the camera or visit your local photo studio and ask them for help. It is an absolutely less complicated camera. It doesnt take more than 4-5 learning sessions to understand all its features. The camera has too many features which we hardly use, but if you need to know the basics of the camera so that you make use of it then I strongly suggest you leanr it as soon as you buy it. and even youtube has many videos to teach you stuff.

Good lens and must one for DSLR

The canon is lens I have bought just started using it along with my new camera Canon 600D. Lens is very good with its image stabilization. The kens is very useful if you want take pictures from distance, landscape, playing kids. I feel the 55-250mm lens is required apart from Kit lens that is 18-55mm. I analyzed so much before buying 55-255mm, decided it is required as I keep travelling and I always like to take pictures of kids, landscape.

Canon -EF-S 55-250mm

I got the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS from Snapdeal. After experiencing the clarity and using the zoom of the lens it has been hard to switch back to my old lens. Pros -Long Distance Zoom -High Clarity Cons -Heavy -Does not fit in a traditional Canon DSLR Camera Case. -High Memory Usage Overall I have found it to be very useful in clciking pictures during my trips. I would recommend this to any amateur photographer or traveller. I hope you found my review useful

Useful !!

The lens sent to me was a kit lens but in any case it is a good deal. If you only have 18-55 lens in your bag, this is a must have. Once you start using, it is realized what all was being missed!!

Good Product - Warranty only an issue

Product - Nice & genuine product, a must buy product for a DSLR beginner Warranty - Didn't get the warranty for 2 years as they promised when tried to register through Canon India Website, also while registering the warranty - found that the warranty is actually for an camera kit (this lens was maybe a part of that kit)...

Good Lens but had problems with wrong supply

Canon Lens are worth the buy and this is a good one for nature and wildlife pics. The more you pay the bigger lens we get. But as a beginner trying to get the hand on photography it is worth the buy. Clear and crisp images are always a part of Canon Lens. Only thing that gave us problem was the wrong supply. it took us more than a week to get things back in place and repeated calls to the Snap deal customer care was required to get the issue sorted out. However once the issue got sorted, the pick up of wrong supply and re-delivery of the lens was quick.

Bang for bucks

I have received the within 3 days of ordering and received very well packaged genuine product. Snapdeal is giving the kit lens that comes with Canon 1200D where the original separate lens is sold 17,000 at the market. So, 7,999 is a very fair price for this product and the lens is brand new also. So, I am happy with Snapdeal.

Good purchase....

A good purchase. The lens is good for zoomed photos and good IS. Received it in a white box so probably was a kit lens extracted from some kit. Still ok.
