I shoot strictly as a hobby. This camera is amazing. 16.2mp, 1080p HD, manually adjustable, 39 focal points, in camera photo editing/effects, finger friendly controls, new camera wheel with sub wheel, two SD cartridge slots, both customizable with JPG* or RAW*, simply WOW. Its my first day with the camera and I haven't been able to put it down. At a very reasonable price, I strongly recommend for the intermediate/pro photographer. Thanks Nikon!
