Great camera. Easy to use and pictures are sharp and clear.

  • Summary: My teen granddaughter is very interested in photography. I purchased this camera as a starter camera for her. She has made some great pictures and is learning how to use the features of the camera. She is 13 years old, and has made some great portrait and landscape shots. She made prom pictures for her older sister, and everyone thinks they were professionally made.

  • Summary: I purchased this camera for me as a gift, but my wife swiped it away. We enjoy it when we are traveling, taking pictures of our grandkids and and the critters out the back door. The price was real easy on the pocket book too.

  • Summary: It does everything I wanted and expected; it is as simple as I want it to be... point and shoot... or it can be complex ie. WB bracketing, completely manual etc.

wife loves it

  • Summary: This was a Mother's Day gift and turned my wife into a full blown digital scrapbooker. It's hard to take a bad shot, and has enough settings that the amateur artist can experiment easily/quickly with f-stops and shutter speeds...without wasting a ton of film. There is no video capture, and the small screen is okay for reference but nothing fancy. It will capure using the RAW format, but my wife prefers the largest jpeg for file size issues.

  • Summary: The camera seemed o.k. couple little issues with condition, but no manual. I am a novice slr user, and am lost as to how to use this thing. Asked seller to send manual, but still haven't heard. Will have to buy one for $10.00. Oh well.

  • Excerpt: My husband bought me this for Christmas last year and I love it. Last year I had absolutely no clue what I was doing, but after sitting and reading through the manual that came with it I slowly learned what each thing did and how to go about taking good pictures. The lenses that come with it are okay, but I'm itching for a 50mm lens for portrait work. It's a strong, sturdy camera. I've had no issues at all with dust on the lens. I love it!

I love this camera.

  • Excerpt: After doing months of research and going between the Nikon, the Canon and the Olympus, I found this camera to be the best and give you the most bang for your buck. The kit lenses are great. The only down side I have found is that all the manuals and books are really geared towards the other two cameras. It is difficult to figure everything out from your manual only. I ended up taking a photography class to learn all the manual settings.

  • Excerpt: I like the feel and weight of this camera, a little slow in when attempting to take action and fast changing subjects. I've taken some very good pictures with camera, for low light you will need a better lens than what comes with this camera. The camera is user friendly, and comes with loads of functions.

Easy to use, worth the price'

  • Excerpt: Easy to use.  Has all the options you could want at more resonable price than the competition. I like the fact that it uses a compact flash instead of an sd card, its less expensive and takes a lot more pictures.  The popart setting also makes for great fun photos.
