sensibill, DP Review
16 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The D5000 really delivered on so many levels - DR rich, great control of noise at higher ISO, solid long exposure performance and it introduced the swivel screen to that range of Nikon DSLRs. Also pretty quick, although LV mode was lacking for AF and was more of a novelty than anything, something that flew in the face of that flip out LCD. PROS: - Fast performance, DR and IQ on par with the more pricey D90. - Swivel LCD allows great flexibility with composing.

Great Camera with a Hot Pixel Problem

Michael P. Kukielka "BORG", Amazon
13 December 2009
  • Summary: Other reviewers have done an excellent job reviewing the features so I would simply like to caution buyers about a problem they should keep an eye out for. I'm a loyal Nikon buyer, making the D5000 my 3rd camera after the D50 and D60. This will be the first Nikon I will have to return due to a significant "Hot Pixel" issue.

Good, but should have went w/D90

J. Wattenbarger, Amazon
5 November 2009
  • Summary: Great camera, but I personally feel I should have went w/the Nikon D90 for the better quality view finder. I believe when judging the quality of the image on the VF- will make a difference in better photographs, either portrait of field work, in post.

Your mileage may vary

  • Summary: I have been using Nikons for over thirty years. I am a great fan of Nikon although the price point of some of their products does not alway reflect actual quality compared to other vendors and Nikon has the same problems with production quality control as everyone else. I knew this camera had a tiny, dim pentamirror viewing system but based on its size and sterling reviews of its D90-like auto-focus I purchased it anyway assuming I could rely on the autofocus.

Good entry level DSLR, but entry level is the key word

Doctor C, Amazon
20 May 2009
  • Summary: Some background, I owned a D40 and later upgraded to the D90. I got a chance to play with the D5000 recently and have to say it's no D90. Sure they have the same sensor and the image quality is GREAT especially in low lighting, but it's definitely not what I would call an upgrade for the D40.

The D5000

tebster, Camerasdirect
9 November 2010
  • Excerpt: The D5000 takes a bit of a different step to the previous digital SLRs from the Japanese brand. From the front the camera looks the same as older models like the D60, but cast your eye around to the back of the unit and things begin to look a little different. The first thing you'll no doubt notice is the 2.7-inch LCD screen, which pops out (more on this later), and the button configuration has been tweaked slightly from older models.
  • Pros: High quality, Durable
  • Cons: Difficult to Use

Nikon D5000: a lungo andare una delusione

Eclaet, Ciao
4 November 2014
  • Summary: Non sono una fotografa professionista ma tempo fa ero seriamente intenzionata a diventarlo, per questo avevo deciso di fare un investimento alto ma non eccessivo: circa quattro anni fa questa macchina costava 800 euro completa di due obiettivi. A quel tempo mi sembrava fantastica anche perchè poteva fare i video, ma a distanza di qualche anno - sorvolando gli aspetti tecnici più professionali - posso dire che anche gli aspetti più grossolani mi deludono, non è una...
  • Pros: E' bella, fa i video
  • Cons: L'audio è pessimo, in generale la qualità video

  • Excerpt: За такие деньги, конечно, о хорошей цветопередаче говорить не приходится, но при плохом освещении цвета даже в фш плохо выправляются, низкая насыщенность цветов. Довольно удобное управление, кроме управление на мануале диафрагмой, нажимать на кнопку и крутить колесо одновременно не всегда удобно, второе колесо бы не помешало, отсутствие отвертки мгновенно сокращает выбор оптики. Удобный экран, иногда снимаю с земли, очень удобно.
  • Pros: Цена, универсальность, простота управления, режим live viev, поворотный экран, надежность.
  • Cons: Ужасная цветопередача, отсутствие отвертки, иногда глючит замер экспозиции, скорострельность.

Grip para Nikon D5000

LUCIANO BLUES, MercadoLibre
16 May 2013
  • Summary: O grip para a câmera é uma boa aquisição para quem quer mais estabilidade na hora de tirar fotos sem tripé, mais facilidade nas fotos em ângulos criativos e autonomia de energia.
  • Pros: Melhora a 'pegada' da câmera, dando mais segurança e firmeza, Aproxima suas dimensões da das câmeras profissionais, Dá maior peso e diminui o índice de fotos tremidas, Aceita baterias OU pilhas, pode ser prático em certas horas, O botão extra facilita muito as fotos verticais
  • Cons: Meio frágil quando não está na câmera, O cabo que tem que ligar entre as partes para se usar o segundo botão deveria ser desnecessário, mas aí é coisa do projeto da câmera, não do grip.
