A superb camera, with minimal faults
Member Name: will_he_wont_he
Advantages: Compact for a DSLR, light, good screen, lovely resolution.
Disadvantages: Flash isn't brilliant, video can be jumpy, struggles in low light.
I purchased this camera around a year and a half ago in order to upgrade to something more than just a "point and shoot", and to that end, it has certainly fulfilled everything that I've asked of it. It's well made, which for someone as clumsy as myself is always a handy benefit. Quick to turn on and shoot, thus for any fleeting moments, I am normally able to capture them with little difficulty.
The screen on the back of the camera is superb; a bright screen with good resolution - far better than any camera screen I've seen. The viewfinder is good, I can have few quibbles.
My only problems with this camera are that in low light, it occasionally struggles to focus. This isn't a massive issue, but if I'm trying to take a quick photo, it's hardly ideal. Also, the flash is a little harsh, although this of course could be rectified by using a flash gun - but still, an additional cost.
Finally, the video recording function is good; a little jittery, so it helps to use a tripod if shooting something that you want to look professional(ish)
So, for someone who's certainly not a professional, but a keen photo enthusiast, this camera is superb. Any issues that I have with it are only noticeable to the pedantic and fussy, so I'd have few regrets in recommending this camera.
Summary: A top product worth the money for someone who wants a well built, lasting DSLR.
