I bought this about three weeks ago, and cannot put it down! The images are amasing, it is light for a DSLR, portable, and easy to use. I have used it both indoors and out doors with beautiful results. I took pictures of my daughters beauty pagent, and her dance class class, as well as her gymnastics class, all with great results. I love the posibilitys aforded with all of the different settings. The sport setting worked great for her dance and gymnastics classes and I loved being able to control my depth of field during her pageant. I would recomend this highly to anyone looking for an affordable DSLR. Image Quality I have taken 1, 679 pictures with this camera in the past three weeks and have not been disapointed by any of them. The images are bright, crisp, and clear even when enlarged. Performance It dose everything I wanted it to do and more. It is also easy to use and fast. Ease of Use A child could take great images with this camera. Durability I have only had this for about three weeks but it seems to be very well made, I am not worried about it braking down. Battery Life I have not charged it since I first bought it 1, 679 images ago! Portability It fits nicly into a camera bag and is fairly light.
