The D5000 represents a new D-SLR category to satisfy D-SLR customers who won?t settle for anything less than outstanding image quality-and are drawn to the ease-of-use that Nikon is famous for.

Nikon Digital SLR Image Quality
High resolution, low-noise image quality is inherited from the D90's 12.3-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor. From there, NIKKOR optics and a host of Nikon technologies are brought together to deliver an experience that has made Nikon D-SLRs first in customer satisfaction, two years running.

The D5000?s creative potential explodes with the capability to record smooth, 24 fps motion JPEG sound movie clips. Leveraging a 12.3-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor, legendary NIKKOR optical quality and the one-button Live View function, the D-Movie Mode expands creative possibilities in 720p HD.

Comprehensive Feature Set
Leading the D5000's rich feature set is the versatility of a new 2.7-inch Vari-angle LCD monitor that offers up new shooting perspectives. The screen can even be reversed when not in use, providing the utmost in LCD protection. Fast and accurate 11-point autofocus is teamed with continuous shooting at up to 4 frames per second. 19 automatic Scene Modes are aided by Nikon's 420-pixel 3D Color Matrix II Metering system, linked to EXPEED image processing and Nikon's exclusive Scene Recognition System for exceptional exposure accuracy.

By Bank Lady (DeForest, WI) September 21, 2010
Review submitted for Nikon D5000 DX-Format Digital SLR Outfit w/ 18-55mm VR Zoom Lens (NKD50001855VR)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Quality, Quiet, Easy To Use
Cons: Poor In Low Light
Other Comments: We bought the camera in anticipation of our groundbreaking ceremony -- outdoors, late day. The photos were clear and sharp, but a bit shadowy compared with those taken by others at the event. This was first use of camera, so some research regarding proper settings for use in this scenario might alleviate.

By Sara (NYC) September 19, 2010
Review submitted for Nikon D5000 DX-Format Digital SLR Outfit w/ 18-55mm VR Zoom Lens (NKD50001855VR)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: High ISO Performance, Good Image Quality, Tilt /Swivel LCD, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Quiet, Good Image Stabilization, Fast Shutter Speed
Cons: Heavy bulky, Live view slow to focus
Other Comments: This is my first DSLR. Very happy with D5000 so far. Read lots of reviews before making purchase and chose D5000 because it's supposed to have good low-light/high ISO performance. Have not been disappointed. Lots of controls to play with. A little heavier than ideal but ergonomically comfortable.

Cons: Small LCD Screen, LCD is clear
Other Comments: This camera is more user friendly than the cannon T1i and T2i. Lens are bigger than the Cannon lenses because the focus motor is in the lens. However, the Nikon D90 has the focus motor in the camera.

4 out of 5 stars   Great camera
By COM (Charlotte, NC) September 08, 2010
Review submitted for Nikon D5000 DX-Format Digital SLR Outfit w/ 18-55mm VR Zoom Lens (NKD50001855VR)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Tilt /Swivel LCD, Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Large Clear LCD, Fast Shutter Speed
Cons:
Other Comments: With increasing image quality of compact cameras there should be (in theory) less appeal to choose to carry a dSLR around. No doubt, they are better in more demanding situations. It is really (the entry level dSLR) an outstandingly successful Marketing PUSH to show off. Mom's hoisting a diaper bags and equally heavy camera bags to take pictures in bright sunlight on "auto" ... not the best idea when a pocket point and shoot could deliver virtually the same thing.

Pros: Quiet, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Large Clear LCD, Good Image Stabilization, Fast Shutter Speed, Tilt /Swivel LCD, High ISO Performance, Good Image Quality, Easy To Use

Other Comments: I use this camera for many reasons, one being photos of our turtles and tortosies at our turtle rescue. The detail of the photos is amazing. I would definitely recommend this camera to the semi-pro photographer. Also, buying one of the books available just for this camera has been exceptionally helpful in learning all this camera can do.

5 out of 5 stars   Everything I wanted in an SLR at a great
By Ken G (Philadelphia, PA) June 27, 2010
Review submitted for Nikon D5000 DX-Format Digital SLR Outfit w/ 18-55mm VR Zoom Lens (NKD50001855VR)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Tilt /Swivel LCD, Large Clear LCD, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay
Other Comments: I use it mostly for travel and home photography. I prefer an SLR because of it's superior picture quality. The Nikon D5000 has excellent picture quality, and many automatic features. The large tilt/swivel LCD with live view is also a nice feature. I also like the video feature which is not common in SLRs, although I would not call it HD. It has many useful manual options, but there is a bit of a learning curve to master them. This is as close to a professional camera as you can get, but without high price of most pro cameras.
