Summary: I love to take pics of my small children. I didn't want to buy a real expensive camera yet because I'm chasing kids around and scared of damaging it. So far it has performed great. I would definitely recommend the sb400 flash to go with it. It makes a world of different for indoor shots.(used in photos below) I really want to take pics with bokeh. The bad thing is the 50mm lens(which is the best for bokeh) will not auto-focus on this camera.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Image Quality, Image Stabilization, Strong Construction
Summary: This camera is great, especially with the helpful instructional DVD's that come with it. We enjoy the beautiful pictures of our young neices and nephews playing sports and everyday outdoor activies. Since we got our camera, we have had 3 friends who have ordered it as well. It is well worth it!
Pros: Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Image Quality
Summary: Couldn't believe the timing and appropriateness of this combo of goodies. As a working photographer this gift to my daughter graduating high school was perfect. She has acquired a feel for photography by osmosis from me and now she has a wonderful tool with which to begin her college experience and keep all those great memories.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Great Image Quality, Image Stabilization
Summary: I take family photos. Scrap booking is more fun with this camera because it takes such great shots. I love having the zoom lens. We couldn't live with out that! Having it makes the diffence in candid, natural shot you don't have to be sooo close just to get the shot! Love it! My brother and his family strongly urged me to buy this. I am so glad I followed their advice!
Pros: Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Image Quality, Image Stabilization, Strong Construction, USER FRIENDLY
