My first DSLR

Amazing value. The kit lense was great for learning how to use all the settings, and when combined with more specific use lenses gives stunning results.

Bracketing function is useful, as is setting the timer for a series of auto-shots.

Also when using live-view to take a phone, you can digitally zoom in.
This helps adjusting manual focus, to give pin-point accuracy for shalllow field depths.

Video recording very useful, and powerful tool with a DSL, and this camera gives great results.
Particularly on a tripod.

Also battery life is extraordinary!
Weeks of frequent use before a recharge. Not even exaggerating. (But I have an externally powered flashgun)

Problems:

Standard problem of max shutter time 30s, so a remote is required ideally for bulb option.
