Nice camera, skip the kit and buy your own stuff
on November 17, 2014
So far, love the camera, takes great photos, very useful for taking SUPER close up shots of my nscale model train buildings and landscaping work. Probably would have been better off though, buying what extra stuff I needed (individually) for the camera. The battery/charger combo and media card work just fine, and I use the media card holder to carry an extra battery. The holder has three compartments to carry extra media cards, but seems it would be an awfully tight squeeze for three of them after you fold it up. That spindly legged tripod is a pain to adjust "just right", otherwise the camera will tip over. The USB port on the camera to computer card reader is in the wrong position to fit into my computer's front assorted card reader ports---so it's basically useless. Bag is OK, but way too big for the way I travel (as compact and as little as possible). My old camera's bag works just fine, a compartment for the camera, extra battery/media card, and a little pocket for my driver's license, money and credit card. Compact, grab and go. Don't know if I'll ever get around to using the HDMI cable.
The camera and assorted kit stuff arrived quickly, and all appeared to be in it's original packaging. Didn't come with an instruction manual, that can be found on the internet for downloading.
