D5000 I borrowed this camera from a friend to photograph a wedding and I fell in love with it! I went out the next day and bought one for myself. I'm currently a photography student, so I wanted a reliable camera for school. I've been using a D80 for the past 5 years and I figured it was time to upgrade before I leave. The D5000 takes phenomenal photographs, I used the 50-200 mm telephoto lens for a majority of the wedding. I only had to switch out the battery once, and that was after having it on and shooting for 9 hours. I haven't done much with the video yet, but I can't wait to try a few time-lapses here and there. July 11, 2013
Great D-SLR I am a happily retired senior and have been a 'serious amateur' photographer since the early 1950s. I have owned and shot many brands of 35mm SLR cameras and tons of 35mm film. I was slow and hesitant to switch from 35mm film to all digital and my Nikon D5000 is my second D-SLR that I have been shooting for ~ 4-5 yrs.. I've never had a problem with my D5000 and the D5000 recall was a minor inconvenience that Nikon corrected rapidly and efficiently and I have never had any problem with my D5000 before or after correction. My only criticism with the D5000 is no motor in the body and not all Nikkor lenses will AF, otherwise the D5000 is a wonderful camera, very user friendly, reliable and versatile. Just make sure you own/purchase lenses that have AF motors and will AF on the D5000 body OR purchase the Nikon D90 body which has an AF motor and will AF Nikkor lenses w/o AF motors. I would recommend the Nikon D5000... It's worked very well for me. July 4, 2013
Beautiful photos and simple to use I have had the camera since June of 2010. I originally bought it for a family vacation and battled between the Nikon and a comparable competitor. One of my friends suggested the Nikon D5000 and another had the competing camera which they offered to sell to me so that they could get the Nikon. After putting both cameras in a toe to toe comparison and the recommendations, I went with Nikon. I am glad I did because I love the photos I have taken with it and the camera has made a novice photographer look like a professional. I only came to this site because I was looking at the wi-fi adapter and seeing if it is compatible with my camera. Sadly it is not, but I am so pleased with my D5200 that I won't be upgrading anytime soon. January 20, 2013
Wonderful Camera I have had this camera few years and I love it! The picture quality is great. Its easy to use and I haven't had any problems with it. January 2, 2013
Funcionalidad al 100 Desde que compre mi nikon, nunca me ha fallado, su funcionalidad es excelente y permite tirar buenas fotos. June 29, 2012

Please verify that you are using an approved memory card and format it in the camera, since it could be that the memory cards are corrupted. Also download from our website the latest version of ViewNX 2 in order to transfer the pictures from your camera to your pc. See links below:

Answer: 
use aperture up to 8/11, anything above that will not yield good results due to diffraction. and it's simple: the lower the focal length and the higher the aperture the more depth of field you have. at 18mm you'll get a very deep DOF even at 5.6.

Answer: 
SB 16 is just the flash body designation, there are two couplers AS8 and AS9, AS9 is for hotshoe mounts and the SB16 with that coupler is designated as a SB16B, this will work with a D3000. The AS8 coupler is for older F3 mounts. So it depends on which coupler you have.

Answer: 
Yes, but not made by Nikon. Theres to common ones: Vello BH-3 and Zeikos ZE-NBG. The first one doesnt requires that cable, but only works on infrared. The second one from Zeikos need a firing cord to actually, shoot.

Answer: 
Is this with all lenses or just the lens that comes with the camera? If it is the lens you have with the camera you might have set it to manual. Look at the swich on the side of the lens which says 'M/A' or 'M' if it is switched to 'M' then have set the camera to manual focus. Another reason it could be is that the camera has no internal focus motor and you have an older lens which doesn't have a motor, like the 50mm 1.8D then the lens won't be able to autofocus.

Answer: 
The D5000 has been replaced by the D5100 which is much better. As for accessories for the camera, it depends what kind of thing you want to do with it. It takes an SD card, I would suggest buying a class 10 card which will allow you to record HD video. You can buy lots of lenses for the camera, though it doesn't have an internal focus meter, so you will only be able to focus the lens manually. These are generally older lenses, there are lists about as to what lenses work on the camera. You can buy a flash, which is good for certain things and a tripod. though these 2 things are not essential.

Answer: 
A lot is down the kind of money you want to spend. I suppose the traditional focal length for portrait lenses is around 70mm to 135mm. Though you can use a 50mm (all this is 35mm without x1.5 crop). So For a 50mm 1.8G or 1.4G (75mm crop) should work as a nice portrait lens. Unfortunately the Nikkor 85mm 1.8D (127.5mm crop) won't autofocus, when used on the D5000 (though it is a wonderful lens, when fixed to a DX camera). As for zoom lenses the 24-70mm 2.8mm is great (36mm-105mm crop).
