  • Summary: The D3000 is a refinement of the D60 which now sits at the low-end of Nikon's entry-level DSLRs. It improves on the D60 with 11 autofocus points, up from 3 and a larger LCD.

  • Pros: Excellent detail and resolution at low ISO settings (especially in raw mode), Very capable AF system, including 3D AF tracking, on a par with much more expensive DSLRs, Versatile and fun retouch options including in-camera raw processing, Effectively unlimited shooting in JPEG mode (with ADL turn...

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...

Nikon D3000 DSLR Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
22 October 2009
  • Conclusion: It offers the complete gamut of usability from point-and-shoot simplification right through to more advanced manual control and image design expected of a DSLR and produces a standard of image that far outperforms anything a digital compact could produce.

  • Summary: There is something we should get out of the way before going any further though: the D3000 does not feature Live View or video recording. The latter isn’t an unusual omission on a budget DSLR, but the absence of Live View may bother those upgrading from a point-and-shoot.
  • Pros: Very friendly and easy to use., Goal-oriented Guide mode., Decent metering and 11-point AF system., Switchable guide-lines in viewfinder.
  • Cons: No live view or movie mode., Some settings require too many clicks., No exposure bracketing or DOF preview., No AF with older (non AF-S) lenses.

Digital Camera Review
18 September 2009
  • Summary: The Nikon D3000 is an entry-level DSLR, but don’t let the term fool you. When you place the label “Entry Level” on a camera, it might call to mind a camera with no frills, limited uses, and little more to offer than an automatic shooting experience.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Auto modes for beginner, Good in low light
  • Cons: Sluggish image buffer, No live view, No video recording
