I've been using a Canon PowerShot S2is for years and became frustrated with the indoor flash or low light picture quality. My son's recommended the Nikon and I've been pleasantly surprised with the picture quality. I used it at a friends wedding and the pictures were great. I'm older and new to a DSLR. There's a lot to learn (and remember) with this new camera but I'm getting there with my son's help. Also the BuyDig's price and delivery was excellent.

I returned this camera. The included 18-55 mm lens was useless, it was very heavy, and had an awkward design.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love this Camera!
from Pittsburgh, PA
I was using a great point and shoot camera for years and wanted to upgrade to a SLR one. After reviewing many different ones, I decided to go with this one and am very glad I did. I found this camera pretty easy to use right out of the box on the auto setting, and have slowly been going through all the different manual settings and so far its been great. My 17 year old son also likes photography, and he's been using this camera more than I have! He's gotten some really nice shots up close of the buds in bloom in the back yard. Very pleased with this purchase. I am looking forward to purchasing other lenses and accessories for this camera.
