  • A. One of the best things bout the Nikon D5000 is the it has Live View!! You can choose to use the viewfinder or with a push of the LV button on the back of the camera (by the screen) you can use Live View. It works in all the modes too that a plus!

  • A. yep. its called live view. It's for use with tripods mostly, as you can't take a very steady photo with the camera being held in mid-air. You need your arms in close to the body and your forhead/eyebrow ridge to make the third leg of the tripod holding your camera. Even with VR you can still overwhelm the vibration reduction with the shaking. The good thing about SLRs is if you have your settings right, the photo looks exactly like it does through the eyepiece.

I've never used these types of cameras before and would LOVE to start learning and using these. I see that people have posted gorgeous pictures using this camera. However, not know much about them, is this camera good straight out of the box? Is the picture quality good? Do I have to purchase any additional items? I would like gorgeous quality pictures without having to purchase additional lens(not until later anyways) or other accessories.

  • A. This camera needs a SD memory card purchased before use. The battery was 1/2 charged out of the box. Although you don't NEED it, I would also purchase a lens filter to protect your lens also. ($15-20 at most).

  • A. So long as you get the camera and a lens, it is good straight out of the box, and you won't need any additional items (I did buy a carrying case). It's a great camera! I'll upload a salamander I shot in low light last week.

  • A. It depends on what you mean by "Gorgeous quality pictures." If you buy the kit, it comes with an 18-55 mm lens. It's the kit lens. Now, With DSLR cameras it's all about the lens. So with time, practice and patience, you CAN produce nice images with just the kit lens, but until you upgrade your lenses, you'll be somewhat limited. Can an 18-55 capture your dog catching a Frisbee in the morning sunlight? Yes! Can it produce "nice" portraits? Absolutely, if you know what you are doing. Can it produce vogue-quality fashion shots, extreme closeups of hummingbirds worthy of National Geographic? Not a chance. As a beginner, you'll be happy with it. Until you learn more. Then you'll want more, and you'll realize you need more lenses. Same goes for the camera body. I use it daily, but as a photographer, do I want more? Yes. If you're just planning on getting "extra good shots" of your kid's birthday... then heck ya, this camera with the kit lens is perfect. If you want more examples, I suggest you go to amazon.com and view the "user submitted photos" for this camera. That should help you out some. :-)

  • A. You will need a memory card. And you'll have to recharge the battery. Other than that it's good out of the box If you want amazing wide angle performance get an FX camera, not a DX. The DX will give you a little extra oomph in the long telephoto. This is a DX The lens is kind of 'meh', but it works just fine. The length isn't dramatic on either end. It's like a car. It'll function off the lot, but if you want it to really perform then you need extras. Here's a short list of good upgrades listed from what I think is most important: -A 50mm or 85 prime lens. -they're fairly inexpensive (for camera stuff that is, $100-$300) and the standard by which cameras are measured. These have the super shallow depth of field that make portraits look awesome -A good tripod. I tried a couple cheap ones but they were just awful. I wasted too much time, money and energy on them -A remote for when it's on the tripod. -A 70-200 high quality lens in at least an f/4. A bit pricey though. The lens that comes with the camera is slow and short. -A wide angle lens. Like Nikon's 12-24 (I think that was it. Might be a 10-22 or something like that) since this camera is a crop sensor you don't get very good wide angles until you get the 10-12mm range. If you're not doing any landscapes then buy the 70-200 before the tripod.

I was so excited to get my new Nikon D5000 Lens Kit. When I got it the packaging was great, the shipping boxes are bigger then i think they should be. When I opened up the camera box it was easy to get to everything nicely packed together but when i pulled my camera body out it didn't have a body cap and it was very dusty/dirty was not happy to see that :( The charger cord that plugs into the charge itself doesn't go all the way in. i dont know if that is how it is suppose to be or what but i dont like it think i have the wrong cord all the time. The 18-55mm VR lens i got with it is great, i also got a 55-200mm VR lens which is great too. i order the Nikon D5000 two lens package. Overall the camera works great so do lens. the only thing i hasn't happy bout was how dusty/dirty my camera body was when i got like i said in the first part of my review. I would for sure recommend this to other. GREAT CAMERA FOR A GREAT PRICE!! :)

This camera has met and exceeded my expectations. I absolutely love using it. In the attached photos I especially loved the way the rays of the sun are picked up in the palm tree shot.. and in the other one, look at all the different colors and activities going on.. yet the camera captured it all including the amazing evening sky with the clouds. That was taken on the streets of South Beach Miami 11/15/2009

This has been, by far, the best camera purchase I have ever made... before making this purchase, I had typically stuck with the usual kodak point and shoot compact digital cameras and wanted to upgrade and treat myself with my first Digital SLR camera. I will NEVER go back to a regular compact digital camera... this camera is very lightweight, easy to assemble and is great for a green photographer, looking for more options than a point and shoot. It has many pre-set features and advance options that I am still learning as I go... and events I have taken pictures at, I've even had people thinking I was the professional photographer, while asking me if I could forward them some of the pics taken. If you're a picture buff as I am, who enjoys capturing every moment and memory, this camera is perfect for you. I have taken pics at graduations, track meets, school functions, family bbq's, etc. It allows you to do editing with the camera without having to download the pictures first... it has video capability... the battery for this camera lasts MUCH longer than did with the compact cameras I've even owned, and I take A LOT of pics... the only thing I would purchase in addition to this camera is the next level lens for more distance photography, though the lens the camera came with was more than suffice for what I've needed it for... I could go on and on about this camera, but I will digress here... point is... you won't be disappointed.

Spent a lot of time going through reviews of other DSLR's of this range and decided on the Nikon D5000. The camera has performed amazingly. Fantastic picture quality in all sorts of conditions (low light, fast moving subjects, etc.). Extremely easy to use for a novice. Menus are easy to navigate and the manual settings are easy to change (and change quickly) for more experienced users. Tilt screen feature alone is worth the price of admission. Battery life has been impressive (as long as you don't use Live View all the time). The VR kit lens also performs extremely well. Fantastic product. No complaints.

I am a student at Indiana University and I am taking a photography class. I have never taken pictures with a camera that has so much potental. This camera was so easy to use. My wife and I both agree that we will never have to pay for a profesional photographer any more. We can do it ourselves with this camera. I would recommend this camera to anyone. Plus the rotating screen makes it great to take pictuers of our newborn son on the floor. Bravo Nikon!

As far as I know about DSLR's this a great camera. I'm not gonna complain but I wish I bought a canon t1i rather then the d5000. But I'm gonna stick with what I already got. It looks great. Very well built. Feels great in my hands. Very easy to use. It has these cool different kinds of scene modes for beginners like myself that help alot. The swivel screen is awsome! Also the first Nikon to do so from what I hear. I don't have any regrets.

I was looking for a SLR for a while and found this deal on Walmart online sale. This is a feature rich very good quality camera. No wonder why Nikon has a great reputation. Fast in consecutive shootings. Taking photos in raw format reveals the most details. Good noise reduction, good AF handling etc. Very satisfied with my choice.
