First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
The best digital SLRs for beginners
- — 07 September, 2010 13:10
A digital SLR camera is a must-have for anyone serious photography. You can get much better picture quality out of a digital SLR than a compact camera, along with the ability to manually control every facet of the exposure. The removable lens system means you can swap and change lenses as you please; you could put on a big zoom lens for when you're out and about, or you can put on a versatile mid-range lens for when you are taking shots around the house. In this round-up we've selected what we think are the best digital SLRs for beginners from Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax and Sony, taking in to consideration ease of use, price and picture quality.
4 / 5
The Nikon D3000 isn't designed to 'wow' people, but instead to teach people. It's a digital SLR camera with in-built guides that can help novices select the appropriate shooting mode and settings depending on the style of photo they want to take. It's image quality is good overall, but it's no match for a mid-range D-SLR.
