Nikon 1590 Final Thoughts

"Learn manual focus."

The extra batteries don't work all that well. Love the camera and accessories that came with this kit. He has waited years for this and it was everything he wanted and more! But, others have covered its capabilities far better than I can. This, in my opinion is a great camera to start learning on.
