Best Entry Level DSLR,
This review is from: Nikon D60 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX VR and 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor Lens with 2 Nikon School DVDs (Electronics)
This is the best entry level DSLR for anyone going from a P&S to an SLR camera. The automatic settings are wonderful, and while not always precise, are a good introduction to the exposure triangle for people who have no formal photography training. This camera provides a lot of options for customizing the automatic modes as well as using a fully manual mode (manual exposure) that will allow the photographer to take charge of the entire photographic experience. The self-cleaning system is a great way to keep images sharp and avoid nasty dust spots on images.
The combination of the two lenses is great. Too few kits exist that include multiple lenses. These lenses are some of Nikon's best for this level of product (consumer SLR). The vibration reduction allows the photographer to shoot more frequently off of a tripod. My only complaint with the lenses is the that they have difficulty focusing close and need assistance for close focus, in the form of a close-up filter.
Great product for any new photographer, not great for a professional, but I have no regrets about it.
