This is my first Digital SLR camera. When researching which camera to purchase, budget was certainly important, value for money and functionality as well as quality. The Nikon D5200 was for me the ideal camera. As an aspiring photographer who has long desired a quality camera and having to settle for compact point and shoot cameras, I knew that I would also need a camera that I could get great shots using the auto function whilst I was learning how to fully utilise the functions of my new camera. The reason I have checked Easy to use under 'Pros' and also Complicated under 'Cons' is that if you set the camera to Auto or just use the Scene option and select your shooting conditions (of which there is an option for everything from Candle Light Dinners to Pet Portraits), then it is a piece of cake to use. If you have time and a particular item you want to photograph, then using the finer settings and getting your image perfect requires reading the manual and if you aren't a professional photographer learning on the run!
The deal I got with the 18-55 lens and the 55-300 lens was great. Teds staff were very helpful, patient and knowledgeable. I never once felt that I was wasting their time or that my lack of camera knowledge was an issue.
So to sum up, Nikon D5200 - Awesome.
Photo quality - Outstanding.
Teds - Great Staff, Great Deal.
Me - Happy as a man with a new fancy camera can be!!
