I've had many SLR cameras in the past [35mm, Digital] and Video Cameras as well. I, by far, am NO pro user . . . just a casual photographer. This model seems to be the "Best of Both Worlds" [still photography and Video] for me. On vacation I would carry a still photo camera and a separate video cam as well as accessories for both. This model is compact enough to do the deed of both. I also have other Nikon lens that I can use on this model also. At 24 mega pixels and more features [than I know what to do with . . .] as well as price, I consider it a VALUE purchase that is hard to beat, not to mention being a genuine NIKON.
