Summary: photos really pop, shine, however you describe it, nikons in general have excellent image quality. not very good battery life, buy another battery or two. auto focus is kind of slow and squirrely, build quality is cheap but great pics. it is 2+ years old and i paid half what they want here but go for it, it is a great camera.
Summary: She searched for the longest time and all she wanted was THAT camera. She knew just what she was looking for and she got it. I'm not a camera expert but for what she told me, it's PERFECT. I try to use it w/o reading the booklet and it was OK, but still need to go deeply into it. For me a camera is a camera, but when looking at the pictures, you can see the difference in the product. Hope we can enjoy the camera for a long time.
Summary: I bought this camera as a back-up to my D7000. It is much lighter/compact, which is great when i want to use the camera for personal use/family outings. I both love and hate that the display screen folds out- its great for live view when i do high angle shots (i'm super short, so i have to hold it above my head) and I can still see what i'm taking a photo of. what i hate about this screen is that its either out/open to the side, or closed and you cant see it.
Summary: I was sent a USED camera! No doubt about it. The flip-out screen looked like someone's sticky fingered child had gotten a hold of it. Smear marks and scratches all over it. Additionally, the recess where the screen docks is filled with enough dirt, dust and grime to fill someone's rolled up blue jean cuffs. Looks like it had been on a nature hike. It's going back, TODAY! A VERY BIG DISAPPOINTMENT, AMAZON!!!
Summary: This camera is small but packs a punch!! I am a professional photographer and I use this camera as a remote and a backup!! I got the 50mm F1.8G for it and it is a beauty!! This would be a great camera for Mom or kid. I am also a photojournalism teacher/ Instructor and I would recommend this setup for any of my students/ adults/ kids wanting to learn photography.
Summary: Love this camera, and it came in a timely fashion. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a Digital SLR camera, do your research and see which ones you like. I looked at both the Canon and Nikon cameras, and they are both really good cameras. It comes down to your preference for how the set up is and layout, and what options come on the camera. I would say that the Nikon is not as amateur friendly if you are new to a digital SLR camera.
