Christmas Cashback on Nikon SLRs and Mirrorless Cameras

Save up to £55 on selected cameras

Christmas has come early at Nikon UK, with up to £55 cashback on a selection of DSLR and mirrorless cameras purchased at participating retailers before 21 January 2013.

Anyone shopping for an entry-level DSLR may have already seen the Nikon D3100 strutting its stuff in our buyer's guide, where it's currently our "Budget Option". And with £35 cashback, it's even more of a bargain. The D3100 is a good beginner's SLR with picture and video quality worthy of a higher-end model. The camera body is, however, quite basic, and the optical viewfinder is a bit tight. Note too that some second-hand lenses won't work with the autofocus.

More advanced users may be interested in the D5100, on which Nikon is offering £55 cashback. Nikon's D5100 has plenty of great features, including excellent picture quality, a swivel screen, good general responsiveness and a Full HD video mode. However, the controls and menus are quite complicated for an entry-level/mid-range SLR. Don't say you haven't been warned!

Finally, Nikon is giving shoppers £50 cashback on the Nikon 1 J1 and the new 1 J2 mirrorless camera, which we haven't had chance to review yet. The J1 is built with sound technology that delivers good picture quality, responsiveness and great video.

Details of all Nikon's cashback offers and participating retailers (as well as the full terms and conditions) can be found on the Nikon UK website.
