affordable price great quality My first proper camera and I love it. I thought it would take me ages to learn how to take great pictures but with the built in help guide after only a week I've got some amazing great quality pictures that look really professional. I chose this camera after a lot of research and if your a beginner that wants great pics of family, holidays, parties , wildlife etc without years of training at an affordable price then this is the camera for you. 10 March 2015

Lens aperture

2 weeks, 6 days ago
I'm used to film cameras so maybe I am not understanding your max and min apertures ratings. You state that the min aperture is 2.8 and max 5.6. But on a film camera F2.8 is way bigger than 5.6. Also a typical min aperture on a film camera would be f11, f16 or even f22. I guess its different technology but could you explain please.
