Best value for Nikon DSLR
This Camera is ideal for that, and with the rubberized hand grip I can hold it with one hand. Anyway don't let the more modest size fool you. This camera is full of features that make it expansive on execution. I love the variety of modes for different situations, the ability to have full manual control, ease of using flash or not, and the picture quality is outstanding. Exactly what I was looking for!! Precisely what I was searching for!!
