Excerpt: This camera is everything it claims to be. Good entry to mid level DSLR. Image quality is excellent. Auto focus and vibration reduction works well with included 18-55mm lens. I also run a 55-300mm lens that has great image quality but a little slow on the auto focus with faster moving objects. I have worked around this issue by tracking the subject while shooting. The video function is somewhat disapointing. Auto focus is very jerky and noisy while taking video.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality
Summary: OK so i'm a high school student who was interested in photography ever since i took my first photography class. I loved all the things relating or about photography. I always used to use some point and shoot camera but not anymore. I BOUGHT THIS CAMERA and couldn't be more happier. This is a superb DSLR for the money. It has FANTASTIC & CRISP IMAGES. I can't afford a 1,000+ DSLR so i bought this one. This still is a great DSLR.
Summary: - Since this is my first D-SLR, I didn't know the body and lens was made of plastic which is really cheap but I guess it's to make the camera lightweight and because it's an entry-level D-SLR. - I had to buy every other accessories that were necessary for a D-SLR like a manual air blower to blow my lens, lens hood, lens filter, and screen protector just to protect my new D-SLR.
Pros: - Newest model of the Nikon D3000 series - Has auto-focusing while recording movies - Great entry-level D-SLR for beginners like me
Cons: - Lack of screen resolution compared to other similar priced D-SLRs
