"Now about this Camera."

It sucks up way more battery life than the D7100/D7200. Everything was fine with the kit - great value! The battery that does come with the camera lasts a long time. The LCD screen is easy to see on bright sunny days. The camera is highly capable and flexible.

Nikon Final Thoughts

"Now onto the bundle."

I got it at the best price for this kit. This, in my opinion is a great camera to start learning on. And because it is older, you can get it cheaper. I shot video of my 5 year old son riding his bike today. I take pictures of houses occasionally and this has worked really well.

"Solid deal."

The extra batteries don't work all that well. I use it as a backup camera to my Canon 7D mark II. It sucks up way more battery life than the D7100/D7200. I shot video of my 5 year old son riding his bike today. Very versatile and swiftly configurable.

"On and on."

I mean, I still shoot film with my old F3 and FE and push film. I love this camera a lot so far! I finally decided I liked the features of the Nikon line. It has a great feel, not too heavy but still substantial. I am also a white balance and color nut.

"Great lens!"

It sucks up way more battery life than the D7100/D7200. I mean, I still shoot film with my old F3 and FE and push film. However, once I saw the images files I was hooked. Very versatile and swiftly configurable. It has a very similar look to a high end smartphone screen.

"Low light performance."

This is an excellent camera for beginners. However on contacting Nikon about it, they sent us a memory card. The camera is highly capable and flexible. The colors of course are very good as expected, and here is a surprise. I got it at the best price for this kit.

Nikon 26402 First Impressions

"Shots were FANTASTIC!"

Everything about it is solid and satisfying. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb. In some reviews this Nikon 26402 is said to be heavy. The initial charge using the Nikon 26402 to charge the battery took about 2 hours.

Nikon 26402 Final Thoughts

"Very nice design."

One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over. I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me. I would like a firmware update to fix that. Likewise, don't rule out film.

"It is short though."

So i bought this kit under a month ago and I'm in love with it. Again, slim margins for a lot of money. I have not used the remote yet so I can't comment on that. So pleased with all the features. Works great for my daughter and her film school.

"Awesome performance."

One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. This camera far exceeded my expectations. If you're a casual photographer, you can't beat this price, get it now.

Canon SX510 Final Thoughts

"My girlfriend loves it."

I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen. Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid.

"She swears by it."

Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas.
