Pros: This is an authentic Canon product, which includes instructions and a warranty, so you don't have to worry about compatibility or workmanship issues.
Cons: It's unfortunate that Canon doesn't offer a way to charge batteries and connect a DSLR to continuous power, so you can quickly go wireless without having to turn off the camera, yet at least the camcorders I have owned from Canon can do this, and their adapters were included.
Other Thoughts: Going by the pictures, mine is the exact same one, built in the same place (china) by the same company (Matsumi), but don't be fooled, this is the actual Canon product, I wouldn't want to risk using any third party inexpensive adapters since I've heard a few horror stories. Sadly, I had to buy it elsewhere, but Newegg has the best price at the moment, it's just different stores run out of stock at different times, so if you see it available here, don't hesitate to get it if you really want it.
I'm using it to take very long exposures, and long time lapses that would drain my battery, or might even drain two in a battery grip, so having continuous power gives me peace of mind.

Pros: Well it's hard to dis something that's free. I got this for free with my camera purchase. The cloth is nice and the mono pod is pretty cool. Actually I really like the mono pod. It's light and sturdy and has a nice bag for it I give 3 eggs for the great price and the mono pod
Cons: the bag says it's a medium so I thought I could use it. I can't I couldn't imagine loading this up and carrying it around. It would probably way 100 pounds. I guess it depends what your into

Pros: K-3 camera is excellent, I love it. The kit lenses are good but I'm glad I had prime Pentax lenses in hand. The body and lens are worth the price.
Cons: Everything else in the kit. Tripod too flimsy for the camera ( have a better one anyway) the mini-tripod is a joke, the slave flash is useless and the wide angle and telephoto adapters are worse.
Other Thoughts: I bought the body at lenses at a good price in this deal, but the rest is extra junk to make you think you're getting something. If you do not have existing lenses, consider the 18-135 kit lens instead.

Pros: K-3 camera is everything I expected. The lens are fine, better than you expect with kit lenses. The price was very good and delivery was fast. Included 32gb card.
Cons: Cons: everything else in the kit. The tripod is flimsy, not that I expected much but this one is useless, as is the mini tripod. It might hold a GoPro but who needs it for that? Extenders not much better, the bag is too small for the camera.
Luckily, I just wanted the K-3 and had not found a better price. So I'm happy, it was a good buy.

Pros: Inexpensive great ball head great backpack for light traveling
Cons: Not suitable for high end gear but that's expected Doesn't come with bacon
Other Thoughts: Nice build quality for a small dslr like a Rebel but I wouldn't trust it with my 5d mark iii though. It is also really light and compact great for using it to support a slider on each end. The ball head is my favoite part. It's really great for photography.

Pros: So far bag is good, or it has not fallen apart yet. Not made of the same material the tripod is made of. It's a bag.
Cons: Tripod is complete trash. When expanding one of the legs the clip that holds the leg expanded, just broke off. Another leg just won't expand at all. I thought maybe there might be some quality in this tripod. The head swivels better than any other head less than $100 that I have bought. I don't trust the cleaning kit on my expensive camera because of this poor China quality tripod.
Other Thoughts: Like to have the tripod replaced but I'm not wasting my money and time sending it back. Don't buy this product if you want a tripod that won't fall apart out of the box. Can't guarantee the replacement is any good either.
