5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera for the money, March 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Nikon long lens is really amazing. The camera seems to have a huge depth of field on long-lens closeups. I think this is because it has high-quality optics in combination with the high quality CMOS low-light sensor. What this means is that the camera can take long-lens closeups while still retaining a relatively small lens opening. If you take, say a closeup of a bird in a tree using the long lens, the bird will be in focus, but also the background that is at a different distance from the camera than the bird. My experience with SLR cameras employing long lenses is that you could get the subject in focus but the background at a different distance ends up fuzzy. This is a fun camera to experiment with, and in particular to see how good quality point-and-shoot cameras have come relative to the much more bulky and expensive DSLRs. There may be places where a bulky DSLR has an advantage, in particular, in making very large paper prints, but 99 % of photography nowadays is not printed out in 16" x 20" paper. I think it would be fun to take the exact same long-lens photo using this camera and a $500+ DSLR setup, print it out maybe at 11" x 17" and see exactly what the differences are!.
