  • Summary: The Nikon D5000 DSLR camera is a camera that generated a lot of buzz upon its release. After I had a chance to review the D5000, I can understand the reason for the buzz. My Nikon D5000 review shows that it is one of the best entry-level cameras I've had the chance to use.
  • Pros: Image quality is excellent, D5000 provides great mix of manual control and ease of use for a DSLR, LCD can twist and swivel away from the camera, Battery life is good for DSLR camera, Good collection of printed materials - quick start guide and user guide
  • Cons: Learning the function of each button could be time consuming, Autofocus can be slow, especially in low light, Experienced photographers will want more features, LCD could use more resolution

A fully featured Nikon D-SLR that's easy to use

Good Gear Guide.au
27 November 2009
  • Summary: Nikon's D5000 is an easy-to-use digital SLR. It's not a big camera, so it won't be too hard to carry on outdoor adventures and overseas trips — unless you also pack plenty of lenses and accessories. We recommend it for anyone who wants to make the leap from a compact camera to a digital SLR.
  • Pros: Excellent Live View implementation, useful scene modes and shooting hints, comfortable to use, fast shot-to-shot and burst mode performance
  • Cons: No dedicated aperture dial, no shortcut for ISO setting, videos were jumpy, no external microphone jack
