D5000 4.7 5 1579 1587
This is a great camera for any skill level. I bought this camera to start up doing fishing, nature and genaral photography and I also wanted a good, well made dslr. I spent alot of time doing research and went with the D5000. It isn't overly complicated for people new to photography but does have the settings that an expert can use. August 7, 2010
This camera is easy to operate, especially for beginers. Wonderful pictures and features. Actually a mini D90. August 7, 2010
great first dslr wish it had auto focus on video!! thats all realy, auto focus on video would be nice, i'm new to dslr's so there is lots to learn and i think this camera will be just what i need for many years August 7, 2010
Photography has just gotten easier I cannot say enough about this camera. This was the first DSLR camera for my wife and I. I did alot of research and talked with a few professional photographers before deciding on the D5000. I told one pro I wanted to take photos as good as his but needed a camera that is idiot proof. He recomended the D5000. We wanted a camera that could handle all of the photography needs we have with as little experience as we had. We do alot of travelling and take alot of photos and videos. On one of our last trips we took a total of 1200 pictures and videos (combined) with the D5000. It worked flawlessly. I would upload the pictures every night to my computer, reformat the disk, and start again. I was also very amazed at how long the battery life is. I completed a 12 mile hike, over approx 7-8 hrs and kept the camera on the majority of the time. The battery still had life, but was fully charged when I started. I do carry a backup battery, but didn't need it on this hike. I post alot of my pictures on a social site and alot of the people who view them ask me if I am a professional photographer on the side. I respond with "I only provide the location, the camera, Nikon D5000 does the rest." I could go on for days about how excited this camera has made photography for my wife and I, but I would just highly recomend you try one out for yourself and you will be more than satisified with the camera and all of its capabilities. Good luck with whatever decision you make. The best one we made was the D5000. August 6, 2010
Its Great I Love it! I was very satisfied with this camera. i wouldn't have chosen anything different. i purchased this camera from cord camera in Lancaster, OH where they were such a big help in getting me the things i need. My favorite feature about this camera is the flip down display screen, it is great for angling pictures and great for storage use. August 6, 2010
Easy for novice users I was intimidated to buy a camera like this for years because of my lack of knowledge, but this experience has been great! The features and controls are intuitive and easy to use and the quality is awesome! I've quickly become the 'family photographer' with only a few months experience... August 6, 2010
Its a great camera. I use it for taking publication photo for my university, I have nothing to complain about the camera. I love the moveable screen that make it easier to taken pictures high and low. August 6, 2010
Great product I bought this camera before a trip to Hawaii, and it was well worth the money. The features are easy to use, no problem switching from auto to manual. Love the swivel screen, very useful getting hard to reach shots. Also got the nikon remote, highly recommend this if you want to get in the shot sometimes. Friends that see my Hawaii pictures are suprised from the quality, Most think they are professionally done. Thats a huge compliment. August 6, 2010
LOVE my D5000 I love the live view articulating display for low shots (I can not bend down very well). I teamed it with an 18-270 AF, zoom with stabilizer lens and they work great for what I need. I am not a real camera buff so I mostly use it in auto without the flash – love it. It delivered what I bought it for. August 5, 2010
Great camera I love my camera! It is fairly easy to use even for a newbie like me. It takes great pictures in all kinds of circumstances. August 5, 2010
Incredible pictures and so easy to use! This is my first SLR camera. I have love how easy it has been to use and the instruction video that came with it was very informative and helpful. I did use a Cannon Rebel 35 mm camera several years ago and enjoyed it, and I have enjoyed my point and shoot digital camera which gave me some pretty great pictures, but everyone has noticed a big difference in the quality of the photos since I have moved "up". My daughter was so impressed with the difference in the photos, she too purchased one and has loved it. There was an accident only a couple of months after getting the camera and I was hit by an object (sports photo) while shooting which shattered my lens and broke off my flash. I was devastated! I mailed it to Nikon for repairs and was pretty skeptical that it would be as good having to be repaired. The lens was gone, but I sent the body in and was extremely happy with the service and my camera is like new again!! Love it!!! So happy with my purchase! August 5, 2010
Nikon D5000 This camera is nothing short of Amazing!! It's so light even with a telephoto lens installed. It's so easy to use, I even figured it out. Lol I downloaded a few Apps on my iPhone and I have answers to anything I could think of and no need to carry the book with me. Buy one today, you will NOT regret your purchase. August 4, 2010
This is the best camera out there!!!!! Makes taking pictures so easy!!! LOVE THE CAMERA!!! Would recommend it to everyone! August 4, 2010
OUTSTANDING CAMERA!!! Love it!!! Love my D5000! I'm a beginner but this camera is so easy to use my pictures look wonderful! Can't beleive how easy it is to use - from taking pictures to editing pictures (via the monitor) and as a huge added bonus the ability to make videos!!! I fell in love with this camera on taking it out of the box... didn't initially notice that it would do videos but WOW are the videos great! EASY, EASY, EASY TO USE BUT A PROFESSIONAL LOOK TO THE PICTURES! THANK YOU NIKON!!!!! August 4, 2010
Great first DSLR Easy to use, and takes great images. This is my wife and my first SLR style camera, and we continue to learn something new with it every day. August 4, 2010
A great Camera, an excellent choice I can't say enough good things about this camera. I have always bought Nikon, and woud recommmend Nikon to anyone. It takes beautiful pictures and videos. With an ISO of up to 6400, and a shutter speed of 1/4000, you can capture any type of picture you can imagine. And some you can't. This is the only camera you'll ever need. August 4, 2010
I've been very pleased with my Nikon 5000. I haven't begun to utilize all of the features of the camera but have made some great shots of my granddaughter and also some beautiful pictures of sunrise at the beach. I especially like the feature that allows you to take pictures continuously while you hold the shutter down. This allows you to get shots that you otherwise would not be able to get. August 4, 2010
This product does everything. I love this camera! It does everything I need it to do, and even more. They thought of pretty much everything from the different focal points on the 'Auto' feature to the different 'Scene' settings that automatically adjust all settings for that given scene. I think this is a great camera for all, from the professional photographers to guys like me whom like to think I'm a professional. I tell you what... thanks to Nikon, when you look at the picture, you wouldn't be able to tell who took the picture, a pro or a guy like me, whom, thanks to Nikon, looks like he is. August 4, 2010
The camera is easy to use and produces very rich photos. There are more features than I currently use but I am sure in time, they will be put to use. The camera fits instinctively in the hand and is easy to steady. This camera had a recall early on but Nikon repaired and returned it promptly and it has worked like a champ ever since. Nikon seems to want their products to match their reputation for quality. Good camera, happy with results. August 4, 2010
The Nikon 5000 has many good features. The Nikon 5000 has many good features. It is quite versatile and I found so far that the camera has meet many of my goals. I have other cameras and it is performing just as good. I would recommend purshasing this camera. August 4, 2010
Best Entry Level DSLR I have nothing but praises for this camera. I have had it for over a year and it performs spectacularly. From Sports to Black and White, it keeps me satisfied with everything I shoot. I very much like the versatility of the screen and intuitive placement of the various user interface buttons on the body. Grip and weight are perfect for keeping the camera steady in low light and lose and light enough to be pulled out quickly for the spur of the moment shoot that you just have to get before it disappears. It is all around great camera, especially if you are interested in moving up in your skill level in regards to your photography skill. It is more than a camera, it is a teacher and a tool to help you in any photographic ambition you have. August 4, 2010
Does not take pix on cold weather. Easy to handle,controls in right places. Problem is it does not take picture on cold weather because the live view function is disabled. Now I have to send it for warranty repair because "live view " is completely disabled. This camera takes sharp and beautiful pictures when it's working. Menu is easy to understand, August 4, 2010
Excellent camera Some of my best shots ever have been taken with this camera. I really love playing with the scene modes to see what comes out in different situations. It takes great shots of many subjects in low light. I've really enjoyed it for shooting my musician friends bands. August 3, 2010
D5000 I have had the camera for about three months and have used it for fun and profit. I bought the camera sight unseen over the D90 because of the vari-angle LCD finder. The camera works great. Almost every picture is perfectly exposed, and as I get used to the autofocus I have more perfectly focused pictures, but only if I use the viewfinder. I have yet to have picture focused using the LCD. I have tried it in many different ways, but it is totally useless and a wasted feature. After getting over my disappointment with the LCD screen, I have come to love the camera. The viewfinder is exceptional, even when wearing my tri-focals. I don't like that the battery can fall out if the door opens, which hasn't happenned unless intentionally. Compared to other cameras, I feel that the D5000 gave me great bang for the buck. I've used the movie mode and am quite happy with it, although my movies have been only used for fun. For one client, who owns a construction company, I took some time sequence shots that I made into YouTube videos that came out great. Overall, I find it a great camera and give it four and half stars. August 3, 2010
Great camera, good value, easy to learn and use This is my first DSLR. After many point and shoots I now realize what I was missing....great pictures. Snapshot mode makes it easy but the multiple scene modes, which are easy to select really "customize" the settings without having to be an expert. The display is bright and all information is easy to see. I have only one caution....I elected the 5000 over the 3000 because of the ability to use either the viewfinder or display to frame pictures...however, when using the display the auto focus is a bit slow. August 3, 2010
Very intuitive; Very fast. As a new user of an advanced DSLR, I am amazed and fascinated with the range of pre-set options and full manual operation. While mastery may take some time, the increase in photo quality and creativity is immediate. A major interest for me at my level of experience is shooting speed - incredibly fast either in single shot mode or multiple bursts. The increased volume of shots of a subject or scene allows for far greater possibilities for "that perfect shot". A superb piece of equipment for the developing amateur. August 3, 2010
Very satisfied with the features for the price. This was my first DSLR. I got it because it had a lot of the features of the D90 without the price, and many more than the D60 or D3000. I am new to taking anything other than snapshots, and am having a blast experimenting with it. My photos have improved so much and I'd recommend it to anybody making the jump from point and shoot to DSLR. August 3, 2010
Awesome Nikon Excellent pictures, nice functionality even for a beginner, and if you take the online course you can get more from your D5000. Very ease to use AFTER you know the buttons and options of the camera. August 3, 2010
The camera has more features than I have occasion to use. It is easy to operate and has help and information guides built into the programs. Lenses are of exceptional quality and available in specifications to meet every need. The supplies 18-55 and 55-200 cover most photographers needs. August 3, 2010
Excellent camera and kit for a very good price. I upgrade from a D70s and I have found the photos with the D5000 to be superior to the D70s. Although there is no body motor, it essentially has all the internals of the D90 for a lot less money. With the 55-200 VR lens, I have been able to shoot exceptional photos on the fly that I couldn't with the D70s and a 70-300 non-VR lens. The resolution increase also provides more flexibility in editing these photos on a computer. August 3, 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.

I have a D3000 (similarly sized) and my case is a Hi-Pro DSLR Sling bag, it works very well. The zoom depends on what lens you have on it, but with the standard kit lens it has about 3x zoom.

yes - in full hd. but only 5 mins at a time (though you can of course make lots of 5 min videos). sound though is shockingly bad (i dont believe you can add a microphone either). just pop it in live view mode and hit the ok button. i would also put the lens into manual mode. the results are pretty good (not that i record a lot of video but it is handy and quality is great

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.

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.)

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!!

Answer: 
Yes, It does. The 18-55mm VR AF-S zoom lens comes with this camera. It is a 3x zoom and the VR means vibration reduction to keep your pics sharp in low light. AF-S means it has autofocus.
