D5000 4.7 5 1579 1587
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

Hi, I purchased the Nikon D5000 about 3 years ago and have been using it since as my main shooter at local shoots. I just got back from a big wedding and was pulling up the camera to view the photos I had taken, after taking photos I view them on the LCD to make sure how they look before I go on to the next photo. I am overly upset because I went to check the photos and over 100 of them are gone, and not in a row all over the time frame I used to take the photos which was 2 days and 2 nights. I am missing all of the father daughter dance photos and some other very essential photos. I have none of the father daughter dance now and am totally at a loss with this job. My couple will love what I do have but not when they see there are important parts I missed completely. I can not figure out how this happened, I have never had this happen before and am not sure what to do to ensure it wont happen again. Please reply ASAP and help me with how to make sure it wont happen again and maybe also why or how this did happen now??

I have a Nikon d5000 and cannot figure out how to keep the shutter open longer than the 30 second shutter speed programmed. I know it has a bulb setting, but from what I can tell I must keep my finger on the shutter release...which of course is not practical or effective for getting crisp night shots. Help?

Thanks!

Hard to tell without camera in hand but a brief checklist:

Manual auto switch on lens set to M/A
F stop on lens set to red number.
Last, try cleaning the electrical contacts on the lens and camera.

The auto focus seems to "grind" to a halt. It almost seems as if the motor isn't strong enough to "drive" the focusing mechanism.

Which Lens is Better for D5000 ? (AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4D or AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G)

I have D5000 DX body and planning to buy a fast lens. i'm stuck to choose between "AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4D" and "AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Lens",
i was quiet leaning towards 50mm f/1.4D as i had plans to upgrade to FX camera body next year. But now lost interest in upgrading to FX body.. willing to wait for good Mirror-less camera with bigger than CX sensor to come from Nikon, which i think might be around 2 yrs more wait.
So my Confusion now is, to get good image quality and sharpness (for portraits and closeups) thro my DX body, which lens shall i choose from above two ?! as the picture angle is 31° 30′ in 50mm for DX body and 44° in 35mm. but the lens construction is better in 35mm.

my main concern is image quality and sharpness (AUTO FOCUS AF-S is not a concern for me i guess ?! even thou some say 50mm if hard to focus manually ) .... any Help appreciated. Thank you.

When I turn on my D5000 the monitor displays camera settings instead of displaying what the lens sees. It used to be that my monitor acted as a viewfinder when the camera was turned on; I composed all pictures by looking at my monitor and not at the small viewfinder. I only pressed Live View when taking videos (I hardly ever used Live View). I reset the camera to its default settings but I've not been able to fix this problem. Please assist! This started happening about 3 months ago (bought camera in June 2010)

Your statement is confusing, live view is using the monitor to compose photo, the viewfinder is not live view. push LV if you want to use the monitor, push again to use viewfinder.

Answer: 
The D5000 doesn't have the feature for Infrared Photography. All digital cameras are sensitive to both UV and IR radiation but since capturing these spectral ranges can lower the image quality of visible light images, they are filtered out in the camera.
However, many of our cameras can still be used for this type of shooting. For IR shooting you can use an "87c" type filter to prevent the exposure of any visible light and just expose IR. While we can't offer any support for this type of shooting there are many third-party web sites which discuss in-depth IR/UV shooting.

Answer: 
Since the D5000 doesn't have a commander mode feature with the built-in flash you'll need the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander in order to trigger your speedlight wirelessly. Also, you can use the SB-700 mounted in the SU-4 (will convert the speedlight into a slave) and trigger it with the flash from the D5000. Please note that pre-flash may occur if there's low light condition for metering.

The compatibility chart on this model is ridiculously confusing and no help whatsoever. Every lens I find has one of the letters in it that won't work, including the AF-I and AF-S.

Will the Nikon Normal AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Autofocus Lens work with the D5000? A site I found selling this say the AF mode won't work? Why? What one does? Please clarify. Is Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor Lens the same lens but a different description? The more I look at these the more confused I am. Is the 35mm AF?

And what is the difference between AF-I and AF-S? Then what do the G or D AF mean?

It would be nice if there was some simple reference page explaining what all these codes mean for someone who just wants to take decent pictures. Or is there?

I am shooting some very small objects for a catalogue and need to pick up the details of these items. I tried my 18-55mm lens and it does not cut it. Can someone recommend an affordable macro lens that is compatible with the D5000?
