Excerpt: Gift for my son. So far we have taken several hundred pictures. Camera has been easy to learn and takes nice sharp pictures. Only downside we have discovered is when in video mode the the noise of the auto focus can be heard in the sound track but the cameras primary role is to take stills.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
Summary: So far this is working good. Still not a pro but if i have enough tome to set it up i usually end up taking good picture. Definitely not a point and shoot kinda thing but it gets the right shot when configured correctly.
Excerpt: I am a photographer and I was looking for an inexpensive option to carry around with me for day-to-day use. This is a great value and for a beginner easy to use. Price point for a new DSLR with two lenses is excellent and with a bit of Lightroom 5 action these pics are almost as good as the ones I take with an expensive camera.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
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.
