Excerpt: I bought this camera because I was going to be traveling to South Africa, and I wanted a good camera to take some amazing photos with. I’ve only ever used one of the more compact cameras before this (a Nikon Coolpix,) so I was completely blown away at how easy it was to use this camera. This is an amazing camera for those new to photography, but it’s also a fantastic camera for those with some experience.
Summary: Great buy, i have this camera still and while photos aren't the greatest you can get out of a dslr, it is the best for the price. anything after 15MP, photos really depend more on who's taking the picture. so if your photos dont look that great maybe take some online lessons because i have had 2 numerous compliments on photos and almost won a couple awards. Video?? The BEST. you really can't beat it for the price.
Summary: This is a relatively compact and lightweight SLR which takes great images up to ISO 1600. Above ISO 3200 the images were very grainy to my taste. The LCD is great... it is bright. The only problem I had is the small grip (i'm a 6' with a rather large hand) so using a battery grip is highly recommended. All-in-all, a great performer for an entry level SLR...
Pros: Feature-packed, image quality up to iso 1600, bright LCD
Cons: small grips (for my hand), no advanced customization
Summary: I love this camera. It is easy to use and I get awesome photos from it. I wouldn't trust anything but Cannon for all my family photos. I find this camera works great in low light settings (like theatre or sporting events) as well as out in the great outdoors. Very sharp nice looking photos. Highly recommend.
