Non-resolvable error The camera was doing well for me, till I encountered this "Autoexposure error" and the Nikon service center at my end was not able to help me resolve this. This error appears out of nowhere and disappears on it's own. I tried looking for some info over the internet, and I wasn't able to find any solution towards this. I only found a couple of links telling me that the piece might be faulty. This error is the only, but definitely a major reason for me not recommending anyone to purchase this camera, as there is just no help available! And the camera just stops working after one gets this error. Besides, one doesn't know when to expect such an error and no one has a solution to it. Quite happy with the performance otherwise, if only I can get my camera to work consistently. December 28, 2010
Great I really love this camera. I got it recently, and it's my first SLR. It's easy to work with, and it's just awesome! It takes great photos, and I don't know, There's just something about it that makes you never want to put it down! December 28, 2010
I just got the D5000 for Christmas and I am smitten! This camera works like butter. I have been using a lower-end Cannon from my school for yearbook, so switching to the D5000 makes taking pictures feel amazing! I feel like the D5000 is much more user friendly than the rebel. I love all of the options the D5000 has, but also just being able to leave it in auto mode and still get great pictures! I have never been able to get good inside pictures but now with my camera I have been getting great pictures of holiday parties! I also did a photo shoot for my sister and her boyfriend and the camera did a great job. It captured the moment: perfect snow fall, happy subjects, beautiful scenery. I am in love! December 28, 2010
really love this camera I bought this camera to go to Hawaii in a once-in-a-lifetime vacation experience in May 2009 (Yes, the week it hit the market!!). I learned to use it while there. It is easy and intuitive for an SLR beginner. I use it weekly and love its versititility and picture quality. There was a minor set back when Nikon chose to repair all cameras that had a potential defect. I sent the body back to Nikon and they returned it in a matter of days with the issue repaired, thoough I never experienced the issue. The customer service has been second to none - great product, great support, great well earned reputation - Nikon is the best!! December 26, 2010
Great camera! Its a great camera that takes such clear pictures that some look like post cards! I love the fish eye pictures! December 26, 2010
Only had it for a few hours and it worked flawlessly. Very easy to use and lightweight. The photos were clear and clean. December 26, 2010
Phenomenal camera I have been passionate about photography for quite some time, describing myself as a high end amateur. I recommend this camera for any individual who enjoys photography, especially one whom is hoping to improve their skills. To assist with the many features, I did purchase an additional book that assists in explaining the camera features a little more thoroughly, and recommend that a first time user purchase some type of guide as well (I purchased David Busch's Nikon D5000 guide). December 23, 2010
Great Camera, Easy to use, Get it. This was my very first dslr camera and i was in love with it as soon as i took the first picture. Very Sharp quality photos, great zoom for everyday use. Gets the job done, plus some. I would recommend this camera to any person looking for a new hobby, or maybe even a pro just looking for something new. Great Camera. Great Photos. Easy To Use. Get it! December 22, 2010
Camera Broke from Day 1 This camera has been a nightmare, its been broke the entire time I have had it, I sent it to Nikon to have it repaired and it still has the same problem. December 22, 2010
I bought this camera when I traveled to Oregon. I had a huge surprised with it. I took many pictures in rose garden - Oregon. Thank to Nikon, I have many beautiful pictures. December 19, 2010
D5000 Purchased D5000 on Aug 1, 2010. Camera failed in November where the camera would not power on, even with fully charged batteries. Checked the serial number against the Service Advisory, but the serial number is out of range for the advisory. I've used Nikon products for a number of years without issue. To have a Nikon product fail like this is an issue. I would not recommend. December 13, 2010
Excellent for landscape, Very poor for child/sport Camera bought in Mar.2010 and at first I was so impresed with it. After I spent more time trying more and more I found out this camera is nothing else just a trouble. The 4 fps stopped working after a month, I sent to repair and they did great job in not even 2 weeks (paid just for shipping warranty cover repair) Camera is great for outdoor landscape and portrait as well. If you will try to catch quicky when kids start goofy games or they got just that lovely smile on their face the D5000 wont catch it. It’s always to late! Or if you get it it didn’t focus right so the picture is useless. I just upgrade to D7000 and put my D5000 up for sale. Difference is huge the D7000 is a Cadillac to Chevy no question ask. I would never buy D5000 and I just love D7000, now I’m able to catch every kids face smile and anything I want in no time - super fast!!! I hope you think twice before purchase :) December 11, 2010
easy to use A lot of cool features. Easy to use, can open the box and just start taking pics, or u can read up on the camera and then start taking pics. Takes amazing pictures! December 10, 2010
Perfect point and click camera for Civil Air Patrol S&R. Use Nikor DX AF-S 55-200mm VR and A on. Tested at NESA 2009 Mission Scanner, 2010 Mission Observer. Anti vibration lenses negate plane vibration. 9 out of 10 shots have little or no vibration blurr. December 3, 2010
Love the flip out display This is an excellent camera. I love the flip out display. Thank you Nikon. Nikon got me hooked on adjustable displays with the excellent Coolpix 950's rotating body. I don't understand why an adjustable display isn't standard on most cameras. There are shots I get with the D5000 I could never get with conventional display cameras. I have 3 Nikon DSLRs. If the shooting situation is going to be unpredictable, especially if I might need to shoot over crowds, the D5000 is the one I grab first. If you can afford 2 DSLRs this should be one of them. November 30, 2010
Near perfection I have nothing negative to say about this camera, it's pretty much perfect for the price!, so many features and excellent Nikon quality. I actually think this has to be the best camera for money purchase ever. November 28, 2010
Generally Foolproof for camera idiots like me. I ave always used Nikon Cameras due their superior quality and precision results. I have taken numerous photography courses and have prolific library. I am still not comfortable figuring out the specific configurations for a specific photo opportunity. With my D-5000, I set it on Auto or a specific scene and click away. If there is a shot that needs work, the file contains enough data for elements to quickly bring out the vibrance of the subject. The true test is the compliments I get from those viewing my work. All relive all my memories when I revisit the photos. This is without a doubt, the easiest and most effective photo tool I have every had the pleasure to use. November 26, 2010
Good starting point It's very good to learn how to use digital SLR camera using this model. November 20, 2010
Excellent camera for beginers Excellent camera with a lot of features especially the guidance within the camera. November 16, 2010
The D5000 is absolutely perfect From the day I got it, I started using it immediately. The battery life is AMAZING, the pictures are flawless, and the tunable screen is soooo useful. I would recommend this camera to anyone. unfortunately, the kit lens does not go that far so capturing far away pics is super hard with this lens, but you can always buy one so im not worried. I love this camera <3 November 16, 2010
Great camera to own The D5000 is amazing camera to own well worth it for the quality pictures and many features other camera don't have. November 15, 2010
Nikon # 4!! If you are wanting to go from film to digital or point and shoot to a real digital SLR and you are on a budget..... Buy the D5000! The quality of this product and the pictures it takes are wonderful. This is my forth Nikon two film and 1 coolpix point and shoot this is the best one yet. I came back to Nikon because of product quality. I have not been disappointed. The only beef I have is the user's manual. It is fairly complicated but when you don't understand something go to the D5000 digitutor on this website. Within a very short time I was taking spectacular pictures. The Nikon website is a classroom in it's own right. If you are still wondering buy don't buy..... Let me help you BUY IT! November 14, 2010
Great Camera to learn with Iv been into photography for as long as I can remember and this is my first DSLR. I carry my camera with me every where and love it but the first thing that was apparent to me was how heavy my camera was compared to those of my friends. Now originally I didn't understand why, but after a few months of use and seeing what this camera can do compared to the base level DSLR's is incredible. It by no means is the best camera in the world but for what you pay for it its amazing. I will defiantly be buying something more advanced in the future but this camera gives you the chance to learn how a DSLR really works and how to use some of the advanced settings needed for professional photography while still allowing very easy almost point and shot convenience when needed. If you want to learn from knowing nothing to being an avid photographer this is the camera to get hands down. P.S. Get the nikon photography school book on basics it will help you get started. November 13, 2010
Unbeatable for the Price! Very pleased with the features and picture quality of this camera. You can purchase more bells and whistles but this has the same sensor of more expensive models. And if good picture quality is what your looking for at a savings, this camera fits the tickets. November 13, 2010
It's a NIKON, what else can you say. Nikon says it all! November 12, 2010
Awesome photos! I love my D5000. It is so easy to use and so much fun. The pictures ALWAYS come out fantastic. And the options available for different photo formats are incredible and fun to use as well. This was a great investment....although now I'm the official family photographer at every family BBQ. :-D My "shared" photo shows how crisp the picture comes out while my cousin fishes on Kailua beach with his son. My other "shared" photo shows how I can control the camera so I can use the natural light to highlight my baby cousin and her awesome cuteness. November 7, 2010
Black animated blotches on LCD playback My D 5000 is the first DSLR i have bought. I am very excited about it. I am still learning to use it and I have taken some lovely pictures with it. The battery life is superb. My issues are 1. pictures are pale and the picture is not as vivid as I am used to although it is on vivid. Some of my friends little point and shoot cameras seem to take brighter and more vivid pics. The pics are generally soft and I have to use the Nex software to get them to 'my acceptable level'. I have noticed that when I take my pics and go to review them on the LCD, I notice animated black blotches. The pics are ok but the black blotches on the LCD is causing me some concern. Is there anything that can be done about the blotches. I usually print in P mode. The writing across the pic in the picture I uploaded is flashing in black during review on the LCD. November 7, 2010
The perfect novice camera. The Nikon D5000 is my very first D-SLR and I am amazed with it. It is incredibly easy to use with a simple menu and easy shortcuts to make each picture perfect. I also love how it has various autofocuses. I take many pictures of my dog and with the track autofocus even if he moves the picture comes out perfectly clear. I would recommend the Nikon D5000 to anyone because it takes great pictures and makes photography enjoyable. November 1, 2010
Love it! I must admit from the moment I held the camera in my hands I knew it was for me. I had considered other models of Nikon but they felt bulky and heavy, and the D3000 felt much too small. I suppose I had a Goldie Lox moment and the D5000 was just right. I take it out on trails with me all the time and couldn't ask for a better camera for nature photography, Even with the simple flash on the camera pictures come out wonderfully. Even nighttime pictures of people. This is a wonderful camera, and I am proud to own it. November 1, 2010
Shopping site needs more info.... I recently purchased a refurbished D5000. I should have called to get my questions answered in advance, but it would be nice if Nikon would post that the warranty is 90 days on refurbished items and that the return period is 14 days. In addition, nowhere did the site indicate what comes with the camera, i.e., lens, no lens? I assumed none based on price and was correct. My point, the site needs to describe precisely what is being sold. The camera I received looked good cosmetically although the mirror inside was dusty, there was some sticky goo in the battery compartment and the Info button on the back panel was sticky in its operation. I'd expect a higher level of attention to detail from the manufacturer's own reseller. I would not buy a refurb from Nikon again. October 31, 2010

Answer: 
The camera has a close-up scene mode, but for extremely close focus you will need to use a Macro lens. Nikon's macro lenses are called Micro-NIKKOR lenses and most of them will let you get so close that you can photograph objects at life-size. To read more about Macro lenses, read this article: http://www.nikonusa.com/Learn-And-E....

Answer: 
One thing to note about the Nikons staff answer. They are giving the approved list of SD cards able to be used on the D5000. This does not mean that other SD cards cannot be used. Sandisk recommends the 32gb Extreme SDHD which is not on the Nikon list. As far as I know, other SDHC card should work on the D5000, though it is always a case that you should find out as much about the product before you buy. I would first check your firmware first, even if it doesn't work it won't do any harm.

Answer: 
Since it has an F mount it can be attach to your camera. However, not all lenses can be used with a teleconverter. In general wide angle lenses or wide angle zoom lenses cannot be used. Also, lenses with relatively slow maximum apertures (slower than f2.8) cannot be used with teleconverters.

Answer: 
What you need to do to achieve Bokeh in your images is use the maximum aperture on your camera's lens. Lenses that have f/stops of f/2.8 or wider (f/2, f/1.8, f/1.4) are ideal for use with this technique. With the aperture wide open, you can also increase the distance between your subject and the background to make it go out of focus more.
To choose the aperture you want (wide open) use the camera in manual mode - where you will have to manually set the aperture and shutter speed, or aperture priority, where you set the aperture and the camera chooses the shutter speed.
Depending upon how much light is in the scene, you may also have to alter your ISO to be able to achieve the widest f/stop.

Answer: 
Bokeh effect is nothing but the blurred part of the out-of-focus image. This effect is normally seen in the photography mostly around the light sources. This effect helps to focus on the object while making the background visually appealing.

Answer: 
Turn the mode dial from whatever you have it on to the icon that looks like a lightning bolt with an arrow but crossed out. Then flash won't pop up. But if the flash pops up the camera must think you need it, usually your pics will come out better when you listen to the camera when you are a starter.

Answer: 
well, give the A program a try (aperture priority). :) most enthusiast or pro photographers don't use any other program besides M or A. or select one of the modes on the mode switch that shows no flash. (see your manual in that matter.)

Answer: 
Yes- and I would recomend the 32 GB Extreme SDHC Cards. If you were getting a camera such as the D3s, I would recomend the pro one but the D5000 only shoots at 4fps so you don't need an extremely fast memory card. Just so you know the 32GB card will hold around 15 thousand photos on the D5000, I use an 8GB and its 3000 photo capacity is enough for me. Don't forget you can always dump it onto your computer!!

I just got the D5000 and I have been going through the manual but still have a question. How do I get the shutter speed to be as fast as it goes? I have a 5 month old and he moves very quick to get good pictures. I have been playing with the shutter speed for it still is shooting slow?

Answer: 
You go into Shutter Priority Auto on the mode dial (S) and then rotate the dial on the BACK OF THE CAMERA (Not on the top) left or right to select the shutter speed (Which is to the right of the F stop on the display) If you are shooting in low light you will need a high ISO setting and maybe flash. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
if you use the built-in flash, it'll stick at 1/60 in A mode, so either use S mode, or go to a higher ISO and don't use a flash.

Is there a setting so that my D5000 will take multiple shots at one time?

Answer: 
Yes, you just hold down the shutter button when the camera is in "continuous shutter-release mode" To put it in this mode, follow these instructions: When about to take a picture, press the button with an "i" on it at the bottom of the left side of your camera. Then go to the "release mode" setting under the ISO setting and press "ok." Then choose Continuous mode (icon has three stacked frames).
