Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Can use as simple point and shoot or full manual. Ease of access to various, including manual, functions. Good colour and clarity of images.Fairly compact.
Bad points:
I haven't found any yet. However, my previous bridge camera with a fixed zoom lens was very convenient when travelling around. There is no doubt that having to buy, carry and use a number of lenses means that I am less inclined to have the camera with me at all times just in case an unexpected opportunity for a good photograph occurs.

Alan, Bridport Retired designer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Camera & Lens package was good but the camera bag was rubbish - too small and inflexible. The camera, as you would expect from a Nikon, is first class. Easy to use but lots of features that take a bit of getting use to, especially if you've never had an SLR before. I once had a Minolta, but back in the eighties, so things have changed a great deal since then. The screen is clear and, once you get use to it, is fairly easy to understand. With more regular use I'm certain it will be a breeze. There were two lenses supplied as part of the package; one is a Nikon 18-55 zoom and the other, a 70-300 zoom lens from Sigma. Both operate as expected with as expected results. The Macro on the Sigma Zoom lens is brilliant and I have already managed some pretty good shots of bees and butterflies.
Bad points:
None, really. Just the useless camera bag that came with the package. And the battery charger is poorly designed. It's limited to a UK type three-pin plug and it would have been a big benefit to have a USB-type charger, so Nikon are a bit behind the times with that.
