Nikon D5000 Review

I use this camera all the time... it's a VERY good camera. You can print very big images with this camera. The vari-angle LCD screen is very nice, excellent for macro (which I love).

PROS:

12.3 MP CMOS sensor

Vari-angle LCD screen

Optical viewfinder

Built-in flash

1280x720p video, more than enough for me (I don't do much video)

Live View

EXCELLENT battery life, lasted me about three months, maybe using it about 1 hour a day.

Very wide range of lenses to choose from

CONS:

No microphone input

Not a very big screen (2.7 inches)

No screen on top, I'm a very big fan of those.

Overall, this is a great beginner/ intermediate camera, good for parents who want to take pictures of their kids.
