The only real downside is that it doesn’t allow you to live view the picture you are taking on the LCD screen. However, this is an issue with all SLR cameras. Very few have live view options but none in this price range.
This camera is one of the most reasonably priced SLRs on the market, and with Amazon’s $409.99 one-day only price now is definitely the best time to buy if you’ve been considering an upgrade.
Thanks to Savings with Sadie for the heads up on this one!
