Simple to shoot! this is my first more hands on camera then just a simple point and shoot, and i find this camera very easy to use and understand... if your looking for a more updated more hands on camera this is the camera to go with... i use it to photograph my clients and i also use it to have fun with my family its an all in one camera.... i don't take very many videos so this camera dose not have that option which i find i can focus more on picture taking with this camera. March 27, 2014
Great starter dslr I had no clue what type of camera to get when I decided I wanted a DSLR so when I asked at the store where I made my purchase, they said this was the best as a starter camera. I took to it like a duck to water. I've taken thousands of pics and received hundreds of compliments on the professional of my photos. The price was low compared to other name brands and I was also given a 200mm lens as part of a package deal. I'm still learning about the camera and hope to take classes to learn more about photography and make it my new life work. December 31, 2013
Entry Level DSLR I bought this camera this year in an effort to deepen my photography skills, (there's only so much you can do with a Point and Shoot). This budget DSLR offers probably the best choice any entry level photographer can have. It's photos are quite good, It's ISO Range and Shutter Speed Range offer a lot of room for young photographers. The truth however is that you will outgrow this camera and opt to buy a more advanced camera that has even better ISO/Shutter Speed. As a beginners camera I wouldn't recommend any other. November 4, 2013
a great product It´s my first camera and I love it. It´s a great camera in few words. October 17, 2013

Answer: 
You should be able to download directly to iPhoto or aperture (if you have it that is). Check your preferences in iPhoto and set it to the default for picture downloads. Or, the camera should show up on iPhoto when you connect.

Answer: 
Nikon has their ViewNX software which can be used, however there are other ways. I pull the card out and plug it directly into my MAC and copy them into Finder. Then I import into Lightroom. LR also has the ability to import directly from the camera or card.

While in manual mode on the D3000, use the Command Dial to change the shutter speed. To change the aperture, you need to hold the exposure button (+/- button near the shutter release) and use the Command Dial.

Answer: 
to change shutter speed while in manual (by default), just spin the dial controlled by your right thumb

to change aperture while in manual (by default), you have to spin the dial while holding down a certain button. That button is by the shutter release, on the right, meaning when you look at your shutter button (the big silver one), there are two other buttons right by it, the one on the right is the correct one.

Answer: 
Not real sure of the in camera feature (will have to review the owners manual), but I use photo editing software and take pictures in the RAW format (NEF). This allows me to adjust the picture in much more detail and I lose very little of the image quality as compared to a JPEG photo.

Answer: 
Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S. I never take this lens off of my camera. It's inexpensive, extremely fast, and extremely sharp around the f/2.8 mark. For the price, it's easily one of Nikon's best and most popular lenses to date. So popular in fact, that you'll have a hard time finding one. If you can manage to get your hands on one, you'll love it.

Answer: 
The time to replace it is when it stops working. Although the shutter count is estimated at 100000 it could go before that or last that long again. If you are a heavy user then it may well not last the distance, the same can be said for and camera, but for the most you will proably upgrade the body long before the shutter gives up.

set your camera to the P setting on the top selector. Now press the flash button on the side and the flash should pop up. The flash will not come up on some modes like the action mode. If you leave your camera in auto mode the flash will pop up only when the camera determines flash is necessary.

Answer: 
the d3000 does not have a body motor which is required to drive the non-AFS lenses focus. the d90 and the d7000 do. so, this is perfectly normal.

Answer: 
If that's with the kit lens (18-55mm) then something's wrong.. If it's not, it might not be an AF-S lens. That means it doesn't have focusing in the lens, so it needs the camera body too. The D3000 doesn't have the focus motor inside, so it needs AF-S lenses.

Answer: 
The D3000 doesn't have the internal motor for autofocus that feature is in the lens. Try a different lens.

Answer: 
are you using a CPU-enabled lens (does it have the little metallic pegs around its rear ring)? if not, don't be surprised; yet, you can still use manual mode.

I just bought ML-L3 wireless remote for my D3000. But don't know how to set it up? Sad that the package doesn't include a manual. I tried by setting release mode to Remote Immediate release mode. But no luck. Yes, I have removed the battery protector cover. But still not working. Somebody please tell me ASAP on how to set it up? I have a photo shoot this weekend.

Answer: 
make sure the ml-l3 faces the grip or has a clear line of sight to it, as it operates with infrared rays

There are 2 options on how to setup the Release mode with the ML-L3 wireless remote control: 2s Delayed Remote and Quick-response remote. Please see page # 53 of the user's manual for the D3000.

I've looked everywhere and can't find the answer. The warranty page just says that all products have different warranties. Not very helpful! And does it still count if you buy it from another retailer like Amazon?

Answer: 
if you buy this camera from Nikon in the box once you get it is a piece of paper that has a warranty that you have to ship in within for the first week that covers damages and the lens that it comes with. hope this has helped

Answer: 
This particular camera came with a 1 year + 4 years extended = 5-year warranty. Product warranty is probably offered with all AUTHORIZED retailers. You might want to verify if Amazon is an authorized retailer for Nikon.
