Summary: My previous camera was Nikon D70s 6megapixel camera. this is a great upgrade. I had the d70s for years and it was a workhorse but sold it when i wasn't doing so much photography anymore. Then i worked professionally in a studio using the Nikon d200 and others. I then purchased a Canon 60d for 1400 dollars. WHAT A NIGHTMARE THE CANON WAS. it was heavy. it was bulky. it was expensive. i hated shooting with it and had horrible colors compared to Nikon.
Summary: This camera package really was a good buy. I was disappointed that the transfer to computer cable was not included. I also purchased the "optional" lens hood for the 18-55mm lens which I thought should have been included. Aside from that, it's a great camera.
Summary: This is my first DLSR camera and I was impressed on how easy it was to take excellent pictures and video with it. It's very easy to use and I do need practice when shooting video with this camera when zooming in on my subject. It's light in weight and fun to use.
