Review:
This camera is an excellent value – 8 megapixels and packed with features, including the wonderful supersonic wave filter (which removes dust from the digital sensor). The camera is quite responsive and you will not notice any shutter delay. This camera is quite user friendly, easy to use and control. It is of comfortable size and fairly light in weight even with a zoom lens on. While the camera is light in weight the materials used do not feel cheap and it fits well in your hand. Auto focus works well in every condition. Images will be well exposed and colour reproduction will also be very realistic. The camera has better pixel count and image stabilization. The camera has an excellent low light performance also has great ISO controls which provides the ability to limit ISO range and still use auto ISO mode. This DSLR has just as many features to produce excellent pictures.
