Summary: My first SLR camera -- took it on an 18-day Amtrak Adventure and got familiar with camera by taking over 2000 pix en route (about 75 will end up in the slide show).

Summary: Really like the camera but there are some features that are not intuitive. You really need to read the instruction manual. Had great fun taking pictures with this new camera and look forward to more as I learn more about its capabilities.
Excerpt: Works very well, takes good quality pictures and video for prosumer purposes. Great for the price. Some of the menu navigation can be tedious though, and not having a physical button/dial for aperture is annoying.
Summary: great set for someone starting in photography. the body of the camera feels a little smaller for my hands but nothing I couldn't adapt to. also its so light that makes it easier to carry around without that neck pain that comes with bigger cameras. quality wise its great!
Excerpt: It's my first DSLR. I'm reading the manual about how to begin shooting movies. B&H has very helpful videos about all that kind of stuff. The delivery came fast, and in perfect condition across 3000 miles. I'll be able to give a better review after I try my first project!
