Summary: Very good camera for the price. I paid only $350 for the used camera with 2 lenses and a camera bag. I bought it for my trip to Japan and used it along with 32GB SD Sandisk Extreme card. I was shooting RAW+JPEG and was stunned by the quality of my pictures. I was thinking about selling this camera after the trip but decided to keep it and just ordered an extra lens for it.
Summary: I have owned this camera for three years now and it has been great. As an amateur landscape photographer and a professional forensic photographer this camera has held up to the test. it is rugged enough I can take it out on my hiking trips and get great pictures of the landscapes around. it is professional enough that when photographing crime scenes your photos will hold up in court.
Excerpt: This is a review from a total amateur for other amateurs. To be honest, when I decided to buy a camera , I asked my friends who were into photography and when they explained to me all the technical stuff with those unfamiliar terms to me, I realized those were stuff I did not really care about. All I wanted was a pretty good camera with video recording ability under my student budget.
Summary: I bought this as an astrophotography camera. I sent it off to be modified to see more red, like in the Orion nebula. I like it because it is relatively inexpensive but is light and performs well. This camera is made for lenses with built-in motors, so the body is light. But it accepts older Nikon lenses with some loss of functionality.
Summary: This is a great camera . It's way better then the nikon d80 I have plus it has video that is pretty good. I have already made some short videos with music . One thing is I didn't research before I bought it so I didn't know it wouldn't auto-focus with my 50mm f1.8 lens. it's hard to get manual focus shots clearly in focous from a distance unless I push the picture zoom in button then focus when it looks clear then take the picture but that's still difficult if the...
Summary: I love the quality of this product, the photographs are sharp and all the buttons work. When in Automatic very sharp. Easy to use. The screen had no scratches and came in a very well shipped package. Everything that was that was included with the camera body was there. I would recomend this product to others. It was also shipped very fast and came before the estimated mailing date.
Summary: I needed an easy to operate yet high quality camera for business and personal use. This camera satisfied these needs. The camera has an easy to use auto focus setting that anyone of any experience can operate. If you have more experience or wish to experiment, you have the ability to easily adjust your own settings. I also have the ability to take high quality videos.
