I enjoy the camera a lot~! It is pretty easy to use for beginners and there are some features I haven't quite figured out. I'd recommend it for anyone! I'd also suggest getting the Double Zoom Lens Kit ~ It's fun working with two different lens and being able to take pictures of things very very far away~! ^-^ I bought it for my boyfriend and he hasn't really put the damn thing down :3 A great first camera for people getting into DSLR.
