- Yes, but most people look through the viewfinder. There are many more options available this way.by CameraOwner123412/26/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- 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!by BuTTerFly201011/29/2010Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Yes there is a thing called live view mode, and it will let you see through there, but autofocus takes alot longer than looking through the viewfinder.by wolfecod7/8/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- 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.by ElGordo7/1/2010Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- There is a hardware button that makes it easy to switch from the viewfinder to the LCD Preview. Just to be clear, you can use the LCD screen to see the picture before you take it.by nbreyno4/14/2010Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- 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).by Tongass1/19/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- I took it out of the box, put on the lens and then added the memory card and when right to shooting. You and put it on AUTO and go to town.by FishPics12/28/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Comes with a good zoom lens, you need to buy a memory card. pick one up at the store on your way out - less than $20. Picture quality is excellent.by CameraOwner123412/26/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- 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.by DianeOregon12/13/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- 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. :-)by An anonymous customer11/19/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- you have to purchase a scan disk to put the pics on...other than that you are good to go!by godoodlesnquilt11/8/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- 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.by ElGordo7/9/2010Was this answer helpful? (6) (0)Was this answer helpful?
