Get a smartphone with Google Translator on it, borrow one if you have to. Use the camera feature in Google Translator and point it at the screen. Magically, all the text turns to from Japanese to English when you highlight it. Look for Settings - Set Up - Language or similar.

Which camera of canon KissX5 and Nikon D5100 would you recommend for a first time user?

Neither. For a first-time user I'd recommend something easier to learn to use, either a Canon Kiss X4 or a Nikon D3100 (not the D3200). You aren't really giving up any features, but getting something a bit easier to learn. And saving a little money.

In a year or so, when you're more comfortable with the camera then you might consider moving up to something more powerful. By then any current camera will have been superseded by something new.

Is this a good camera for beginner photo enthusiasts.....want to create books and albums for my journals..use it to tell a story i'm a granny not a techno person but very willing to learn

This is a great camera, fun to use and fairly simple. Yes there is a learning curve with anything that's new (digital). The manufacturer(s) seam to pack a whole lot of unnecessary features into their products to in their minds remain one step ahead of the competition. In a most cases the user becomes intimidated and frustrated. They then just put the camera in "auto" mode and go ahead taking pictures never learning the full potential and creative abilities of their cameras. If you have had previous experience with film cameras then the transition will feel almost seamless. By learning and understanding the features of your camera (learning curve) you will be able to do just about anything you want with this camera from short video clips to beautiful still images and be able to have digital prints made. So to answer your question directly "Yes" this is a good camera for an enthusiast. Cheers have fun with your new camera

THIS IS MY FIRST CAMERA and i dony know anything about cameras

Try to google for your cam model and read the necessary reviews from people that posses a similar model. Also, go on forums related to your cam model and learn from other people experience in order to shorcut the eefort to learn your cam and use it at its most . If you have the cam manual, its a good start to learn the features. Also, try to get on photo techniques sites and learn the art of taking good pics. Profiency comes in time and always by testing. So, my advice, play with the cam :) Cheers

You need to read up or get lessons to learn manual photography. Search 'free beginners photography lessons' on Google and try to find a website which you like, as there are many with lot of great content. Essentially, you would need to learn and practice one manual feature at a time and slowly add more as you get comfortable with the earlier ones. Some of the main manual features are aperture, shutter speed, focus and metering. Start where you are comfortable. Regards Virdi
