"Quality camera."

If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. A great camera for the money and my needs! But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle. This camera has so many features for its size. Better photos than her XR phone.

Nikon D850 Final Thoughts

"Love this camera."

It sucks up way more battery life than the D7100/D7200. All other cameras in this category are much more expensive. This all with my Nikon D850. Very good camera for the size. Again, slim margins for a lot of money.

Sony First Impressions

"Plenty of features."

The case was good, and the flash drives are good. So, when Sony came, I purchased it immediately. Even with the lens, battery and SD card, it weighs very little. Simply because they just use the kit lenses the cameras come with. The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference.
