              This One is an Excellent camera on entire cool pix range by Nikon. Once who try at least, I think most probably He/She must upgrade his/her  before enter through the DSLR capture zone. I mean to say it might be the final gateway before Dslr. Marvel One,......... In comparing the price n quality in Indian n even global market also,.......///
