  • Truly amazing

    This Nikon camera is all you would ever need. It has blue tooth, wi-fi, cloud based, easy operation. I would highly recommend this camera. I bought it for my son and he loves it. Uses it all the time for photoshoots of my products. It was a game changer over his Iphone photos. We bought the deep rich red color and's beautiful! Buy this camera. You won't regret it.
