Lacation: New York,New York
Type of Sport: Point and shoot cameras

Cost Performace

This is my first DSLR purchase; I use it mainly for nature photography. The picture quality is very good in all conditions with the kit of lenses. I found 3fps burst mode works well when taking sports photos. I got very sharp photos when I took in softball game. It has light weight and low noise on time exposure.
