An array of automatic scene modes make it simple to capture clear images in a variety of situations and a range of retouch functions let you enhance photos in-camera. With so many powerful features packed into its compact, lightweight body, the D5000 offers people on the go a fantastic way to capture stunning shots from any angle.
12.3 megapixels of pure magic A proven performer, Nikon’s DX-format CMOS sensor with 12.3 effective megapixels records all the details of the original scene for breathtakingly lifelike photos. Shadows and highlights reveal exceptional details while a remarkably high signal-to-noise ratio vastly reduces noise — especially important when shooting at high ISO settings.
The excellence that is EXPEED The result of Nikon’s relentless pursuit of excellence and years of know-how, EXPEED image processing system delivers stunning images while maximizing camera performance. This new version of EXPEED — especially developed for the D5000 — works in tandem with the 12.3-megapixel CMOS sensor to produce finely detailed images that exhibit superb color reproduction and rich tonal gradation with minimal noise. Moreover, fast processing makes short work of power-hungry tasks like high-speed continuous shooting, Live View shooting, and Active D-Lighting, providing fast handling that many digital SLRs lack.
D-Movie for Memories that move Make your memories come to life in all the breathtaking splendor of HD movie clips. D-Movie records beautiful videos with sound, expanding your range of creative options beyond still images. It also lets you take advantage of the large selection of NIKKOR lenses to obtain a variety of dramatic perspectives unavailable with typical camcorders. After shooting, you can watch movies clips on the D5000, download the movie clips for viewing on a PC, or connect to an HDTV via the built-in HDMI connector to share with family and friends.
19 Scene Modes for Any Occasion Take the guesswork out of tricky photo situations with Scene Modes. Simply turn the mode dial to SCENE and choose the mode that matches the subject. The D5000 does the rest, automatically adjusting exposure, image processing, Active D-Lighting and other settings for optimum results. Sample photos appear on the display to help you select the right shooting mode.
Live View shooting with the new 2.7-inch Vari-angle monitor When composing through the optical viewfinder is not an option, try Live View shooting via the 2.7-inch Vari-angle monitor. This crisp 230,000-dot monitor with 100% scene coverage gives you the freedom to hold the camera in a variety of positions, making it simple to shoot from dramatic and interesting new angles. Raise the D5000 high to shoot over crowds, or hold it close to the ground for a little creature’s view of the world. Whatever perspective you choose, the Vari-angle monitor adjusts easily to accommodate your creative urges. And when you’re finished shooting, the monitor can be tucked away with the LCD panel facing the camera back — the perfect way to protect the monitor against scratches and other damage.
Keeping dust down and out Preventing dust from accumulating in front of the CMOS image sensor is essential for spot-free photos. That’s why the D5000 incorporates Nikon’s Integrated Dust Reduction System, a comprehensive solution that both prevents and removes dust particles. The system also comprises Nikon Capture NX 2 software (sold separately) for additional dust-reduction measures.
