I just bought this camera before the arrival of a new Grand child but I didn't get many pictures due to clarity issues. Of coarse, in the hospital they ask that you turn the flash off which I did and the pictures still came out but almost too bright and this made the pictures kind of blurred. Maybe it's my fault but this is my third Nikon DSLR camera and although I am not much more than an point and shoot photographer this is the first camera that gave me these issues. I will work with it and see if I can master it but it does upset me some that I had to rely on other people to share pictures they took with their phones when I spent so much on the camera just for this event. Others may not have this problem I will have to look at more reviews since there just might be a problem with this one camera and not all cameras from this model.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
OK I’m going to cut to the chase and list some built points for the features I like and the others I won’t use. I like and have enjoyed this camera, the reason for 4 stars is the wifi feature. If they just left it off and included IR remote shoot I would rate it 5 stars. Pros: I wanted a camera easier to use with manual mode, this works. The command diel on the top of the camera is easy to use. The large screen makes it easy to review shoots for sharpness, composure and make sure you have the shoot you want. If you do not want the screen to illuminate, leave it reversed. The touch screen makes it easy and faster to change settings and mode. Pictures are very sharp, good contrast and color saturation. The size and weight of this model works for me. Lighter and smaller than most. Auto focus is fast and accurate, but may vary with lens. I like the live view better than I thought I would. I find situations where you cannot frame a shoot otherwise. It is good for close ups of flowers where you need to be low to the ground. Cons: Not impressed with the wifi features and the fact they choose to leave off the IR remote shoot. I’m just going to bundle all of the wifi features into one and say, Nikon could have invested there time and money in a better way.
