My first time buying a camera bundle, I was just starting out in photography and was on the verge of starting a professional photography course.
It was 2009, and I just bought a Nikon D300 bundle, actually the first bundle I came across with. Perhaps it was naivety or too much enthusiasm or both.
But looking back today, I realized just how wrong I was.
While that camera was in itself a great one that I enjoyed using for the following years, the deal itself is something I’d not like to remember considering that most of the accessories I got alongside the camera were garbage, some of which I’ll never even need.
Buying Nikon D5600 Bundles
I’ve bought several camera bundles over the years. I recently bought two Nikon D5600 bundles, the first one as a backup for my primary camera, and the other one for a friend about to start professional photography.
On both occasions. I got what I would call very great deals.
Here’s what I’ve learned over the years;
- While it’s understandable that you’re looking for the best deals, the best Nikon D5600 bundles are not necessarily the cheapest.
- The retailer selling the bundle is just as important as the bundle itself. Buying from the Nikon store or reputable retailers on Amazon and elsewhere can save you money.
- Focus on what’s included inside the bundle and be sure most of these things are what you’ll need. For example, if a bundle contains a microphone and you’re not a vlogger, chances are you might never get to use it.
I got two great deals from a credible retailer.
Many of the accessories also came with a warranty, unlike when I bought the earliest bundle. This way, you know that what you’re buying is original and that even if anything goes wrong, there is a warranty you can rely on.
Camera bundles are great, and I recommend them for anyone who needs them. But one just has to be sure they’re getting value for their money. After all, isn’t the essence of buying a bundle to save money?
