Excellent entry DSLR 11/12/2009
This review is from: Nikon D3000 Black 10.2 MP Digital SLR Camera w/ 3x 18-55mm Zoom-NIKKOR VR Lens
Everything you need and could want in an entry level DSLR. I went from a point-and-shot to this and the difference goes beyond staggering. Very useful settings and a button that gives you information on whatever menu item you've selected (Ex. If you're adjust the ISO, you can press the ? button and it'll explain what adjusting the ISO does.) It's conviently sized and the weight is very comfortable when held. Takes excellent pictures.
This is en ENTRY level DSLR. That means if you have already owned a DSLR, this won't that step-up you might be hoping for. That said, if you have a D40 or older, the D3000 offers some newer, much nicer features, imo. The only con I can honestly think of is not knowing how to use all the settings on this camera, aha.
My camera arrived and would not focus properly under Autofocus. The focus bracket, as seen through the view finder as [ ] around a focal point, was strictly off to the right. Ended up the focusing centers had become misaligned. I can only imagine it might've taken a little bang here or there during the shipping process, but NewEgg's customer service very, very quickly remedied the situation and I have a new one on the way. Newegg's customer service is, as always, beyond expectation.
