Summary: This camera is very beautiful. Think flashy red sports car. However, the slick red exterior feels just a bit slippery. Like it will slip out of my hands. I am already getting used to it, but if a good grip is important to you, then you might like the black one better. UPDATE after using it for several months. The red color-though flashy and pretty, is a detriment when shooting close-ups. It can reflect a red color on the subject.
Summary: Not complete information about the product -specifically refund policy One of the items went faulty - did not resolve the situation and mentioned it was me directly to the manufacturing Although the price was great (for this reason score 3 stars) - this article could not return and was to be claimed first with the fire dept - that's ridiculous and does not allow for changes UNLESS YOU IMPROVE THE RETURN POLICY NOT RECOMMEND
Summary: The overall package is really great, and I would have given it 5 stars, except for the very antiquated external flash provided. You can only use the included flash in the manual mode, aka 1970s technology. Do not expect it to automatically work with the capabilities of a full functioning TTL flash. I would rather that Cameta would have substituted the Sunpak PF30X, or similar, that does include i-TTL for Nikon, well worth the $10 additional cost.
Summary: No question about it, I love the Nikon camera and the lenses. I have taken so many great pictures and I am sure there are more to come. I chose this bundle because you get a lot of the things you need, grouped in one order. Not so happy about that ... - the card reader stopped functioning after 6 months - the tripod is not very strong - the extra battery is not made by Nikon and is not an approved one - every time I have an issue and I call Nikon, this is what I hear -...
Summary: I am kind of disappointed with this camera. My D40X was fabulous....great pics and easy to use. Until my granddaughter drowned it in the Atlantic Ocean this summer. Don't get me wrong.....this is easy to use, has a lot of fun features that my old camera didn't have, but I just don't feel that the quality of photo is there. When I shoot outdoors, they are great, but my indoor pics are really making me crazy.
In between a good point and shoot camera and a professional camera

Summary: Updated November 25, 2013 Professional camera reviewer Ken Rockwell suggests that the 5200 body for about $800 can do mostly everything the can be done by the D600 $2,000 body so why pay the difference for some extra dials and buttons? I followed his advice and bought the D5200 and will keep it, but if a good used D600 body were offered for sale for $1,000 I'd gladly swap. While I realize the camera can do a lot, the lack of easy control buttons and extra modes bugs me.
Summary: love the camera and everything about it just that when i received the camera the lens was damaged a bit....kinda found out after few months later when i took a massive amount of photo because i found a weird mark on all the same spots on every picture
