Summary: We have had this camera now for over 3 years and have taken thousands of photo's. We absolutely love it. Not only is it nice to look at but it takes great pictures and great videos (in good light).
Summary: I was an imaging professional during my working career own mostly Nikon systems at home and Canons in the office. Two years ago, I needed to decide on a new DSLR for my own personal (travel and daily) use.
Summary: I caught the camera bug as a 12 year-old and after quickly progressing from a Yashica rangefinder which I had inherited to a very primitive Praktica 35mm SLR, I set my sights on what was then the most popular camera in existence, a Canon AE-1.
Pros: Absolutely reliable. Mechanical functions--will continue to work (sans light meter) even if battery fails.

Summary: The operation of this is complicated, but worth learning! The photos it takes are outstanding. It has features that my old fashioned camera required me to carry around, but here, with the click of a button, I have filters and exposures -- and I love that it is RED - I never leave it anywhere!!
Summary: I love this camara. The only thing is that the shutter is a bit noisy to be close to the objetive we want to take a picture a bit close and go unnoticed. Nice cámara for a principiant, to get used with a reflex.
Excerpt: Bought this camera for my work, after reading all professional excellent reviews. Very disappointed with the performance. It just can’t produce decent pictures. I get a lot better pictures with the Fuji S100FS that I own private.
