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
Great Starter DSLR! I bought this camera to learn photography with and it has never failed me...ever!! I have traveled frequently with it in cars/trucks and on ATV's!! Great starter DSLR! The options offered are great for learning with as the camera just can't do some things the higher end cropped frame sensor DSLR's can do. It has never failed me. It still works I just upgraded to the 7000 after 2 years owning this I have just out grown it. I keep it as back up equipment and I would still be using it if I didn't purchase a new 7000 recently! GREAT BUY! (Images uploaded were shot by this camera and the stock 18-55mm lens) May 26, 2013

Answer: 
Depends if you are looking to stop the action or show the movement. Use a faster shutter speed to stop the action, a slower shutter will "blur" the motion or background if you are following the motion.

Answer: 
Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D3000 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

Answer: 
If you are on M, manual mode, then the flash would not pop up unless you have it set to auto-flash mode, which can be changed by pressing the bottom left button (I think...). Personally, I hate flash, so I turned the mode off right when I got the camera.

Answer: 
That's a bit of a vague question. If you asking where it is and how to use it, then I know how to answer your question. When looking at the dial of options for your camera (Auto, Manual, Portrait, Kids, etc) You'll See an "A" for aperature, and an "S" for shutter speed. If you want to manually adjust your aperature, you select the "A" Then, near the top of your camera, to the top right of the screen you'll notice and unmarked wheel. You turn that to adjust, same thing for Shutter speed. And for Night settings, there's actually a setting on the dial on top of your camera for that. It provides flash, to get the objects, landscpae, whatever in front illuminated, and it keeps the night time look in the background, without it being over exposed or under exposed. My best advice is to just play around with these settings and get a feel for it.

Answer: 
The D3000 is the most basic DSLR Nikon make. You can pretty much use it on auto most things. It isn't as good as the D3100. The main thing with the camera is that you have only get the kit lens with the camera, any other lens you have to buy separately. It takes much nicer photos than a compact. I don't think it is too complicated to use, though it will only Autofocus, with newer Nikon lenses.

Answer: 
No, there is no focusing motor in the D3000 body. The lens must be one of the newer AF-S lenses to autofocus on this body.

Answer: 
there is no autofocus motor in the body that is why you need to use lenses with the AFS motor in them or if you are buying off brand like Tamrom they use BIM motor, Sigma has there own

Answer: 
I personally use a 50 1.4G but it will cost you around $400. It is their best low-light 50mm lens. If price is an issue you can get the older version 50 1.4D lens for well under the price of a 50 1.4G. What type of photography are you doing? Street? Portrait? Landscape?

Answer: 
The D3000 and D3100 is a beginners camera and is very good for anyone coming into photography. It is a very basic DSLR which does all the basic things that a camera of its type should do.

You will be able to learn to use Aperture, Shutter and manual controls with the camera. Be able to set up the white balance, EV and change your ISO. Don't worry if you don't know what white balance, EV or ISO are, it is all part of the fun of learning You will probably want to just start off taking photos and learning how to compose the image, which you can do in auto and program modes. I do suggest that you try Aperture and Shutter priority, as this is really the beginning of the learning how to do proper photography. You can pick up some very good books on learning the basics of photography and also there are lots of guides on places like YouTube which explain what different setting do, which can help allow you to understand what you are doing.

There are a few things to bear in mind about the D3000/D3100. Lenses come at various prices, you can pick up a 50mm 1.8G for not to much money but very good lenses generally cost more. Also with the D3000 and similar Nikon cameras you will not be able to autofocus with all Nikon lenses. If the lens says 'AF-S' or 'AF-I' then it will autofocus, if it has just 'AF' it won't.

I hope this answer isn't to confusing and I wish you all the best with your photography. :D

I've been doing photography for a few years now, and I bought the D3000 about a year ago. I have an 18-55 VR (came with) and and a 55-200 (not VR) lenses. I take mostly nature shots but I often get called to take photos for indoor events, and other events that are often low-light. What lenses and/or other accessories should I get from here?

Answer: 
For a d3000 look into the 35mm 1.8. It's affordable and great in low light and very sharp, not a very far focal length though.

Answer: 
When inserting the SD Card in the D3000, make sure that the notch on the SD Card is pointing up.
Also, have a look at Page 20 on Insert a Memory Card in your user manual.

Hope this helps,

Answer: 
Probably because the D3000 does NOT have video mode. That would explain why it does not say anything in the manual. However, there is stop motion editing in the camera.

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.
