Nikon D3000 Reviews

image The Nikon D3000 got a review today by the folks at DCResource. The D3000 is an entry level digital SLR from Nikon which, like the D40, D60 uses a CCD sensor and does not incorporate a focus motor. This limits lens choice somewhat.

The Nikon D3000

  • 10.2-megapixel DX-format imaging sensor for prints up to 20 x 30 inches
  • Includes 3x 18-55mm Zoom-Nikkor VR Image Stabilization lens
  • 3.0-inch color LCD screen; 170-degree wide-angle viewing
  • Capture images to SD/SDHC memory cards (not included)
  • Nikon EXPEED image processing; in-camera image editing and Active D-Lighting
“The Nikon D3000 is an easy-to-use, compact digital SLR that won't break the bank. It offers very good photo quality, impressive point-and-shoot guides and help screens, responsive performance, full manual controls and, of course, the expandability that you come to expect from a D-SLR.

While live view can certainly be handy at times, I don't think that the vast majority of people will miss that feature.

"For a great price like $600, the Nikon D3000 is an excellent value, especially if you are ready to move into more advanced photographic waters. Once you start acquiring the lenses, a few years down the road you can replace the body and still have the glass."
