This is a nice entry-level DSLR camera, with an excellent cost-quality ratio and a good set of resources for photographers moving just up from compact cameras but not ready yet, like me, to invest big money on more expensive cameras.
I had bought this camera for college. It's long since gone for a year or two now, but not due to any complications, I had finished college and outgrown it.
It's absolutely a brilliant and well recommended camera for any beginner. Or just anyone who fancies some high quality holiday snaps. It gives a range of options, but doesn't completely drown you in them, keeping it simple yet sophisticated. It feels built to last. Not cheaply made like some other cameras can feel. I practised with a range of cameras during my course, and I would always come back to using my own (this one). The battery life seemed to last perfectly fine, I could take it out for a day shoot, come back and the battery would still be fine.
I can honestly say I personally never had a problem with this camera. Great for beginners, probably not suitable for anyone experienced as it's very simple in any DSLR terms.
