As I learn, there are a few drawbacks to this one. In manual mode, I have to go through the menu to adjust ISO. There is no button for this on the camera. I am mainly on aperture priority mode and don't have to worry about it, but it was very frustrating for the nights I tried to get shots of the full moon. It just isn't intuitive. If I were someone who adjusts ISO regularly, I would probably have to upgrade to a fancier version.
But, overall, my pictures are clear and I have found a great new hobby!
This camera is an amazing value when you consider cost, features and quality. I can say without a doubt it is one of the best camera purchases I have ever made. Because it was a fraction of the cost of my D750 (more than 4 times less) I feel comfortable taking it everywhere without worrying about it as much. I had considered buying a higher end point and shoot without the interchangeable lenses but this camera turned out to be less expensive and much more versatile.
There is a reason for all the positive reviews on the 'net'. This camera is a purchase you will not regret.
The only thing I didn't like is that the cd drive that comes with it for software, is pretty much useless because it is too old. You have to go to the software website and download a more updated version. Another thing I didn't like about the software is that when you edit a photo and click save, your edited photo disappears and all you see is the unedited version. Also, sending an edited photo is a nightmare. Maybe I just need to learn more about the software, but it is not very user friendly.
Another thing I have noticed, for anyone debating between camera brands, is that nikon seems to have less and more expensive third-party lenses available in comparison to Canon.
In terms of battery life, I found that it does last a long time. So far I've only charged it once and I've used it about 3 separate times and it still has battery left.
I love that it has a microphone jack that you can insert a microphone to if you want to record video with better sound, which was actually my final deciding factor.
Overall, it is a light-weight, great beginner camera.
Performs well for my level of expertise so no complaints. I'm still learning the nuances of having complete control of shutter speed, aperture and the works and I feel this is a great way to get started without being overwhelmed with too many buttons/features. The battery life is great, I haven't used it in cold weather for prolonged periods of time but obviously the battery would struggle in that regard. The body is well built and I love that its super lightweight but at the same time doesn't feel cheap. I've only used the 18-55 kit lens that comes with it so I can't comment beyond that.
Overall I give it a positive recommendation for anyone looking to up the quality of their photos without spending a ridiculous amount of money on a camera they don't need or know how to get the most out of for that matter.
This is my first DSLR and I was very happy to finally bring up the courage of buying one. I had a friend teach me some basics on a Canon, and some of the knowledge translated here. I found this Nikon to be extremely user friendly (especially to new users) as it pops up hints as you go. All in all I am pleased with this purchase and hope that it goes a long way.
- In my opinion, price is very good for a camera of this quality
- Photos come out nice and there are a lot of materials to study from (ex. online tutorials) about the use of this camera
- Compact enough for my use, I did not want to lug around a huge camera
- Extremely "nooby" friendly, has picture examples to help pick ISO levels, and tells you when your subject is too dark
- Missing a couple features from more professional cameras (support for wireless flash, built in AF motor, etc.)
The camera is easy to use and the instructions are easy to follow. The battery life is good. The image quality is excellent.
Only downside was the quality of the pictures in low light environments, which sometimes seemed a little blurry.
