Advantages: Easy to use, lots of functions, value for money
Disadvantages: None that I have found as of yet
My wife and I got married back in May of this year and my parents (knowing we like taking pictures of where we have been and the beautiful landscapes we see) thought this would be great for our honeymoon - they were right there!!!
I am by no means a professional photographer, nor even a very experienced amateur (getting there though!!) - what I would say though, is no matter your level, this camera makes it so much easier for you to take the picture you want. The multitude of settings that are preset and the ability to alter different levels for particular shots is extensive.
For our honeymoon, we spent a week on the Isle of Wight at a family apartment overlooking a beautiful view of the sea, so when the sun rises I was out there at the crack of dawn with the new SLR and the results were not disappointing!! Furthermore, we went on to Sicily for two weeks and for one of the day trips we were 10000 feet high virtually at the top of Mt Etna and again the SLR lived up to its fine reputation and more. To be honest we were surprised that the camera managed to cop well with the drastic temperature changes and didn't suffer from misting of the display etc. The wisps of snow in the air were clear captured a sight that you have to be there to see in person and amazingly enough, a picture of a snowflake was inadvertently taken - but the clarity of the snow flake at close range was again amazing.
So, what else could I tell you - I could tell you more about the spec.'s but you will have read about those already, what I can tell you is that the feel of the camera in your hand is comfortable and allows you to keep a steady balance. The magnifying range with lens is fantastic and vast. Playing around with the various settings, whether a seasoned pro, or a novice snapper looking to develop their skills - the menu system is clear and even without reading the manual, you will get to grips with it like a duck to water. Even my wife can use it and she's a complete novice.
The accessories you can find on the market are great complements to a marvelous piece of photographic genius. I know that there are more expensive and advanced items out there, but I do strongly believe you are getting some serious value for money when you invest in this product and it will last for many years to come. In fact, my brother is doing a media course at university and has a similar (but higher spec) model to this - personally I see no difference in the quality of image captured.
Overall, if you are looking to buy your first, or even upgrade from an older SLR type - you will not go wrong by visiting your nearest tech shop and asking to see one of these and you will see exactly what I am trying to convey. Words work well, but images can speak a thousand words.....or in this case 532!! lol
Summary: A good camera for people of all skills and a joy to use, to capture your memories in print
