My first DSLR after graduating from the P & S grade. I found it easy to use and fairly rewarding when you get good light. The proce means that there are certain sacrifices you make on features and one shouldnt expect the D3000 to perform like a D3X. It is a great entry level camera to use to learn. Yes, it does have a short curve, which means you will outgrow its limited features in 6 - 8 months of use, but unless youre going pro, it will work through a couple of years. The 18-55 kit lens is ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
Nikon user for 45 years. Incredible for the money. Picture quality is excellent up to and including 800 ISO. 95% of what I need can be done with ISOs 100 to 800 and one kit lens. Add the 55-200mm and you have 99%. All my old AI lens work fine, they just don't meter. With the sweet 16 rule and all the features; meter don't matter. I don't use the Guide, but it's nifty. It frees me to make better photographs. I leave it on "P" and ISO 400 and go from there. Problems: It is not as rugged as my ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
If you don't need video and the idea of slow live-view is counter-intuitive to an SLR, this smaller unit rocks. With a few configuration tweaks (especially make that self-timer button an ISO control!), this camera delivers enormous bang for the buck.View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
I just read the other comment saying the D50 its better ! and i had a D50 and this one is so much nicer ! the pictures are really nice sharp colorful ! this camera is great ! so i guess the other person had a bad camera because i just compared my d50 pics and the d3000 pics and the 3000 is the winner ! i do recommend this camera to everybody. i dont believe much what other reviews say. because there is lots of different opinions. Problems: no video !View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
Having owned a Nikon D50 for three years I was expecting great things from this new camera and eagerly awaited it arriving at my local shop. The plan was to fit my Nikon 18-105mm lens to the body and enjoy years of taking my camera everywhere but sadly this was not to happen as I returned the camera back to the shop after using it for a week and taking just shy of 500 JPEGS. And why did I return it? Simple, the answer was the image quality. Yes the camera is well built with a good menu set-up ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
The stupendous success of D40 and D60 has made Nikon raise its benchmark for beginners SLR. Under its new nomenclature, the D3000 is set to take on the challenge. A host of user friendly features, robust body and vibration reduction lens in the kit, the D3000 is a serious contender for new comers in D SLR photography. Lay your hands on it and feel the experience. The results are amazing! Pros: 3” large LCD, 11 AF points, Very fast shutter response, superb manual focusing, Quick setting info ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
