It has absolutely everything you need, except the camera bag is too small; you must invest in a larger one to hold everything. The manual is pretty good but I need to use the download software provided instructions more because they are clearer and more user friendly. (Try bringing those 300 pages printed on vacation or to a site. LOL I haven't had it long enough and am still fumbling with the settings. The auto focus is great ..........when it is sunny; but when in grey skies or rain, all I got were black silhouettes against grayness. I know it is my fault; but wish I could use manual settings to get a picture! For someone who knows about these things, it is a super camera.

Wow, this is a camera! I will spend many moons learning about all it's features. Image quality is superb. With Pentax in general, I can buy the necessary lenses without having to get rid of them if I upgrade the camera. That was my primary reason for buying a Pentax. I like the automatic features with the ability to control the lens. If I want to take my time, there are all the manual possibilities. H ave yet to learn what all the numbers mean. Only wish the manual was more elementary since it's touted as an entry level SLR. This is a serious camera, and the next step up from a 'rebel' type which I owned previously. I'm excited about this as I use a camera as a reference tool since I'm an artist.

The camera and attachments were actually beyond my expectations. I've taken high speed photos and they are wonderful. It does take a bit of reading from the manual and then some experimentation but once you get the hang of it it's easy to use. Canon has gone to great lenghts to provide you with plenty of options to get your questions about camera use answered. The best part is that you can delete the "experiments" and just keep taking photos.

I have had many cameras as a photographer, actually started out with Pentax, went to Nikon and now Im hooked on Canon products. They just seem to get it right every time. I had this camera with work for about a year and it's the best one I have ever used so I bought one for myself. The video is remarkable, 60 frames per second and you can watch it in slow motion right one the view finder. The photos are great. I am a manual shooter, I don't use the sports or other settings, so I can't say much about that. I came from the film days where we couldn't look at our shots when you took them, you just hoped when you developed them they were good. But the manual setting is perfect, white balance is spot on. I also bought the battery grip for extra battery life. Last forever on one charge. Highly recommend it. I will keep this camera forever, with 18 Mega pixels, that's about all you need. At my job, my photo was blown up and put on a Semi Truck and it looked great. It's the size of a Billboard. No need to go with higher Mega Pixel, 18 is plenty. My first magazine quality camera was 6 Megapixel and it still looked great on print. So don't be fooled by those higher Mega Pixel cameras, just stick to the Canon 7D.
