Camera Test: Nikon D3000

Pop Photo
12 March 2010
  • Excerpt: You can get a lot of Nikon for your money—the $780 (body only) D90 pops readily to mind as a near-unbeatable deal. But what about the lowest-price entry point into the Nikon system, the D3000 ($550, street, with 18– 55mm f/3.5–5.6 VR lens)?

Digital Photography Interface
10 February 2010
  • Conclusion: By now you would’ve read enough to know that the Nikon D3000 is Nikon’s most basic camera in their digital SLR lineup (and also the most affordable).

28 January 2010
  • Summary: The Nikon D40 was an innovative digital camera, not only for Nikon, but also for the completely entry-level industry of the DSLR industry. What created the D40 so different to what had gone before was its stylish customer interface, which was designed to describe, rather than show, key capturing...

  • Conclusion: Nikon has been raising the bar on their entry-level DSLRs. While the D3000 is intended to be their most affordable model, it is using a variation of the 10MP sensor and the same AF module on the D200, which was a $1699 prosumer model that was in very high demand merely a few years ago back in 2006.

DP Review

  • Summary: The D3000 may not have all the latest bells and whistles feature-wise, but what it does it does extremely well. If you can live without live view and movie modes it's the perfect beginner's camera.

  • Cons: Unreliable white balance under artificial lighting, Slight tendency to overexpose in contrasty conditions, No Live View, Screen resolution slightly too low for checking accurate focus, Very little control over high ISO noise reduction, No front control dial, No depth-of-field preview button, No e...
