Novice who didn't spring for the DSLR
on November 13, 2012
I am enjoying the camera very much. I am a mother of 3 and a teacher. I contemplated getting a DSLR Nikon or Canon as that is what most of my friends use. However, I have limited "learning time" and came aross this camera as it was a lightning deal on Amazon. I ordered it after reading the reviews, thinking I could return it if it was a lemon. I am so glad I took the chance. I see that this camera has many of the same features as a DSLR just in a smaller and easier to handle package. I am just getting acquainted with the basics but I am also learning how to adjust things manually by getting on Pinterest and looking up things like "white balance" and "ISO". I think I'm going to get a lot of use out of this little camera. The pics. I have taken so far of my kids and pets are above and beyond my expectations. I had a little compact digital camera from Panaaonic before and this one blows it out of the water! If you are looking to move forward in technology but don't want to lug around a larger DSLR (or spend massive amounts of time learning how to use it), this camera just might be for you.
