Had to buy an entry-level dslr camera for my parent's trip and this specific model was an excellent choice. What really drew me into buying this specific camera was the viewfinder; I like how it can be removed from the body of the camera and can be tilted. This option also comes in handy when trying to capture photos of babies on the floor and you don't want to go all the way down on the floor with them. Overall the quality of the pictures are superb with 10 megapixels per photo. I can zoom into their photos and see things very clearly, not grainy or fuzzy at all. The zooming function is also really great and can go for several meters. One of the best things about this camera is its ability to capture really incredible night shots due to its various ISO options. The menu is quite simple, simple enough that you really don't need to read the instruction manual - you can figure it out on your own just exploring the camera itself. It's a fair and good deal for the price.
