    Yeah I guess. I was thinking more about the tripod the bag and the film camera body since I dont have one. Is that flash crappy too?

    I don't think that's a good deal, either.
    Film cameras are insultingly cheap, and you can get some wonder (far better than a Rebel X, if you want -please, no offense) plus a nice lens for that money or easily even less. Yes, you won't have all that stuff, but that you'll have you'll keep, which wouldn't happen with the one included in the offer.

    Probably the numbers say great offer, but then things you'll have, don't

    Really, I can see no point in buying a film SLR new at this point. Used ones are unbelievably cheap on eBay. Today I picked up a very good autofocus 35mm SLR body for what I guess equates to about $40, and that was in a camera store (which usually overprices used cameras). So I don't see any need to buy new. And really, the rest of the stuff in that bundle is not very good. $300 can go a suprisingly long way - but not there.

    If you want to buy a good (not great) quality 35mm slr to putz around with go minolta. They are giving them away these days. Lots of cheap glass in the manual focus lenses as well.

    yeah quantaray is pretty cheap brand- but keep an eye out for things on ebay for sure. for $50 i got a film SLR (which is pretty much just for collection now :p) but it came with a Tamron 70-210mm MF zoom and a regular Nikon 50mm MF f/1.8. and both lenses have worked well for me so far. i have like NO money to spend on camera stuff *sob* but i'm glad to have found what i did rather than have nothing but the kit lens.
