Simple design, basic controls

You should know from the get-go that this camera doesn’t have the best feel or design as far as DSLR cameras are concerned, and if you’ve ever held a DSLR before, you’ll immediately notice this. Its body is made out of plastic, with a tough-to-move mode dial at the top, and it has only one control dial for changing the exposure values. More expensive DSLR bodies (usually the ones over $1000) have two control dials, which allow you to more quickly change exposure settings, and their mode dials generally don’t feel so rigid. But these are just a couple of things you notice that are traits of a shooter in this entry-level category. These are simple controls, and will perhaps be all you need at the start of your journey into DSLR photography.

The mode dial at the top is a little tough to move, which is good in the sense that it won't easily move on its own while in your bag, but it's one of the first indications that this is a cheap camera.

Image quality

This was taken in manual mode. We used the flash to brighten the front of the flower since it was backlit. You can see the circular 'bokeh' pattern that the lens renders (this was at 55mm). You can also see that there is a hint of brickwork showing along the bottom edge of the frame on the right side. Through the viewfinder, which has a 95 per cent field of view, this brickwork was not visible and our framing looked perfect.
