This is one wonderful camera. My last SLR was a (film) Minolta from the 90s, but with the advent of digital I stopped using it and bought a digital 'point-and shoot' Olympus. After 12 years faithful service the Olympus died and, still missing the power and creativity of an SLR, I decided to look for a new one. So, whilst far from being from a pro photographer, I'm not a complete noob either. I was looking for something with full manual control combined with a fair bit of hand-holding.
After reading countless reviews and watching hundreds of YT videos, I chose this...and what a good choice it is proving to be! There are really only one or two competitors in this price range and I must admit that I did a fair bit of procrastinating. But, my final decision was crystal-clear. This is perhaps no longer one of the latest and greatest 'upper-entry level' DSLRs when comparing numbers alone. However, when viewed as a complete, user-friendly package, it is, in my view, still unbeatable. A few pros and cons for you...

PROS
++Probably the most user-friendly albeit complex tech I've ever owned
++Incredibly easy to use; switch it on, select full-auto, take a picture and a beautiful image will be displayed on the monitor
++Full built-in support to help and guide you with every selection and choice (switch-off the help if you wish)
++The design of the camera simply encourages you to move from full automation to full manual control in small (or large if you wish) stages
++So good to use, you'll find yourself picking it up all the time and taking more and more shots of everything from cats to carnations
++The screen, wow, so good, so intuitive, touch-sensitive, clever, you can focus and take shots with you finger if you like! 'Fully-articulated' ie flips-out and swivels, very, very useful, I can't now imagine being without it
++High-quality, silent, fast-focusing 'kit' lens
++I didn't buy this camera for its video capabilities but I can tell you that crisp 1080p video is available at the flick of a switch with decent sound from the built-in stereo microphones. You can plug an external mic in too
++Great ergonomics and build
++Good-quality bundled Canon software including a disc of photography lessons and a program to organise and edit your RAW files
++Lenses; tons of aftermarket lenses are available at reasonable prices

CONS
--I can't really think of anything at the moment. There's no wi-fi or GPS so you may want to bear that in mind. You'll need to budget for a bag, memory-card and whatever else takes your fancy

I'm thrilled with this camera and I thoroughly recommend it

Brilliant camera. So easy to use with an abundance of canon or alternative accessories. Lightweight and durable, I love this camera. I'm an entry level amateur photographer who is very much learning, and I love the flexibility to put this on auto or change differing perspectives. Very good buy

Great camera for beginners and vloggers. The quality of the images this camera catches are great and the flip out screen is very handy.

Great camera even for non-pro. Can't be compared to phone camera. Stability, clarity and simplicity makes this a good purchase for me.
