By , dealnews contributor

We know it feels like it practically just started, but the springtime will turn in to summer before you know it. To capture all the season's blooms and birds aplenty, you'll want to snap up these digital camera deals and accessories. This week we're featuring an Editors's Choice Canon Rebel T3 at an all-time low price, plus two great bargains on camera bags, and more!

  1. Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2-Megapixel Digital SLR Camera bundled with Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Type II Lens
    Store: 42nd St. Photo
    Price: $379 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $20

    Is It Worth It?: Do not delay on this Editors' Choice, as when we first posted this deal, Fry's Electronics, too was offering this camera and lens for $379, but it has since sold out. Now available from 42nd St. Photo, this setup, which "delivers excellent photo quality" is a steal, as most other stores charge $450 or more. The camera features a 2.7" vari-angle LCD, HD video recording, 3 fps continuous shooting, SDXC card slot, USB, and more.

  2. Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Autofocus Camera Lens
    Store: BuyDig via eBay
    Price: $288 at checkout with free shipping
    Lowest By: $22
    Expires: May 5

    Is It Worth It?: This Editors' Choice lens deal would make a great addition to the above T3 purchase as this 10.2-oz. lens can be used with Canon EF-mount SLR cameras. It's perfectly priced at $288, which is a $11 price drop from last week's mention, to boot.

  3. Tokina SLR Camera Lenses Rebate
    Store: Kenko Tokina USA
    Discount: $30 to $50 off via mail-in rebate

    Is It Worth It?: Looking to improve upon an existing DSLR setup? Then look no further than these Tokina AT-X SLR camera lenses rebates. You'll save between $30 and $50 off via mail-in rebate. It's the first such discount we've seen on these lenses from Kenko Tokina, and it yields several price lows.

  4. Refurbished Canon Powershot ELPH 100 HS Bundle
    Store: Canon
    Price: $77.97 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $39
    Expires: May 11

    Is It Worth It?: This bundle is a bargain! It stars with the factory-refurbished Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS 12.1-Megapixel Digital Camera in Pink. Then add the Canon Deluxe Leather Case and the Dane-Elec 4GB SDHC Class 4 Secure Digital High-Capacity Card, and you've got the makings of a classy, compact photo-video package — and a savings of $21. This 5-oz. camera features a 3" LCD, 4x optical zoom, optical image stabilization, 1080p video recording, SDXC/HC MMC+ card slot, USB 2.0 connectivity, HDMI, and more. A 90-day Canon warranty applies.

  5. Lowepro Edit 140 Camera Bag
