Nikon Cashback for Christmas offer

As is usual, in the run up to Christmas, the major camera manufacturers announce special deals on some of their product range. Nikon has announced that it is offering cashbacks worth up to £40 until 31 January 2011 for UK and Eire customers on the purchase of the D3100. Claims must be submitted by 28th February.

This seems to me to be a little mean, considering that Sony is offering the VAT back on some of its digital cameras. Visit www.nikon.co.uk/cashback for more information.

The D3100 is Nikon's replacement for the D3000 and comes with full HD capability (1080p), a 14.2 MP sensor, live view and a more ergonomic design, according to Nikon. It also has an 11-point AF system, ISO range up to 12800 and the new EXPEED 2 image processor.
