My New Camera: Nikon D5000

I finally bought my first DSLR camera! After spending tons of time researching and comparing not only prices but camera features I decided to purchase a Nikon D5000, sorry Canon lovers, I'm officially a Nikon girl.

Well, since I'm not that experienced at using a DSLR (yet) I started off by purchasing the basics and B&H Photo and Video not only made this purchase easy but also affordable, so much so that I've already started my wishlist with them (hint-hint)!

Here are some of the many features that I personally love about the Nikon D5000:
  • 12.3Mp DX-format CMOS image sensor High-resolution imaging sensor for sharp images and the ability to output poster-size prints.
  • Vari-angle LCD The Nikon D5000 is the first Nikon DSLR to offer a Vari-angle, 230,000-dot color LCD that allows you to compose still and video images from most any angle and shooting position.
  • 19 Auto-exposure Scene Modes Choose among 19 pre-set exposure modes designed to deliver optimum perfect exposures under a variety of common shooting situations, including a Food Scene Mode.
  • Advanced Auto-Focus Modes The Nikon D5000 incorporates an 11-point AF system with Nikon 3D Focus Tracking and advanced Face Detection to ensure the sharpest possible pictures.
  • Low-noise ISO sensitivity Low-noise images can be captured under the most challenging of lighting conditions at ISO ratings ranging from a native 200 through 3200, and can be expanded from 100 through 6400 when needed.

Congrats on your purchase, welcome to the Nikon Club :)

Congrats! This is what my boyfriend shoots with for work (he's a county detective) and fell in love with Nikon and plans to buy one for personal use. I played around with his D5000 for a day and fell in love, but I refuse to touch it again, because I don't want my Sony to get jealous.

Have fun!!!

Adriana said...

Kimberly, I really love it, I haven't even touched my Canon digital camera since I got the Nikon, but I definitely need to take some classes, I'm clueless! LOL

Veronica said...
