It has every feature needed for a beginner to learn photography. What I have learned in this process is that you need everything manual (not automatic) to truly learn the ins and outs of photography. Otherwise, you rely too much on the automatic features of a camera, and therefore do not learn how to do it yourself.
By the way, this camera comes with the worst owner's manual ever published. The one I received must be at least 12 year old, or older. Hopefully there is a better one to download.
i liked the camera, it looks new and all but the battery cover was 95% broken, and it fell off and i didn't know it can't without cover. it gave me a hard time my first day in class :(. I ordered a battery compartment online but i won't get it for another week which is probably gonna effect my class assignment!!! :( but overall it looks new and good but useless till i get battery compartment (another 10$ expense)
if you are a Old School Photographer ( like me ) you will Love this Vivitar setup. buy it you won't be sorry! nice seller too! john :)
