What have been the best-selling cameras thus far this DSF?

As we at Jacky's kicked off our 16th edition of Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) deals, we took a few minutes out earlier today to actually have a look at what have been the best selling products thus far since DSF 2011 started and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, we've listed out the best selling cameras thus far in DSF 2011 below.

1. Nikon D3100 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-55mm lens + 55-200mm lens

This DSLR camera is the replacement of the popular D3000 camera, which was one of 2010's best selling cameras.  This new 14.2 megapixel camera had got a 3.0" LCD screen, live view mode, 3 frames per second continuous shooting and a guide mode.  Price attractively at Dhs. 2,999, it comes bundled with the standard 18-55mm lense and an additional 55-200mm lens (which is worth Dhs. 1,499).  Apart from this, we've got many other freebies bundled in which you can find out more about by visiting any of our retail outlets or sending us a message on twitter @jackysuae.

2. Nikon D90 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-105mm lens + 70-300mm lens
This has been one of the top sellers in the DSLR category, especially amongst professionals.  It is a 12.3 megapixel camera which has got live view mode, active-D lighting, 4.5 frames per second continuous shooting and a 3.0" LCD screen for Dhs. 4,999.  Again, many freebies have bundled into this offer as well.

3. Canon EOS550D DSLR Camera with 18-55mm lens
This 18 megapixel DSLR camera has done exceedingly well because it is one of the highest megapixel cameras available on the market.  Priced at Dhs. 3,599, it has shoots continuously at 3.7 frames per second, can record full HD video, has a digic 4 processor, an ISO of upto 6,400 and movie cropping.  It comes with a standard 18-55mm lens and again lots of freebies bundled with it.

4. Canon IXUS-130
This has been a very popular point-and-shoot compact camera since it is very sleek, stylish and is available in many colours like black, silver, pink and orange.  For us, we've found the silver to sell the best with us but the other colours have had their own fans as well.  Considering it is a 14 megapixel camera, it's been very aggresively priced at Dhs. 699.  It has a 28mm wide lens, 4x optical zoom and can record HD movies.

5. Sony DSC-W570

Sony has been the first to launch a 16.1 megapixel compact camera and has some unique features like sweep panorama which allows you to takes several pictures as you make a panoramic sweep and stitches them together to create one panoramic photograph.  With most cameras, you'd take several pictures and have to combine them on your PC using software like Adobe Photoshop (For more details on sweep panorama, click here).  It also has a 5x optical zoom, 2.7" LCD screen, 720p HD movie recording and comes in various colours like black, silver and pink.  This camera is priced currently at Dhs. 699 with many freebies also bundled into this.

With DSF 2011 ending on 20th February, 2011, there is still time to make your purchases whether at Jacky's or the retailer of your choice and whatever you decide, we hope you enjoy capturing all your memories on it.
