Nikon D3000 DSLR Camera

Nikon D3000 DSLR Camera

One of the most talked-about DSLR cameras around as the gift-giving season draws near is the Nikon D3000, which is ideal for people who are starting out in the photography hobby.  This 10.2-megapixel digital camera comes with its in-camera Guide Mode that serves as the user’s photography tutor.

The Guide Mode works as a series of menus that appear on the camera’s LCD.  The user then chooses the type of scene and subject he or she is about to shoot.  The Nikon D3000 automatically adjusts its settings to provide the best image possible.  This makes photography more fun and handy.

The Nikon D3000 comes with its own 18-55mm AF-S lens with autofocus, while the Vibration Reduction function is its very own image stabilization technology whenever the camera is used in low-light situations, allowing for slower shutter speeds while keeping its focus on the subject.  The result:  Images without the blurry faces and fireflies.  It also has its own image manipulation tools so the user can adjust the usual problems such as cropping images or reducing red-eye, or be adventurous in taking images such as double-exposure effects.

The user, however, must be aware of Nikon D3000’s weak points, which includes the inability to frame shots on display, which means the user would have to keep on peeking through the viewfinder to make sure he has framed everything right.  On a good note, such practice would actually "force" the user into utilizing the camera like an actual, professional SLR.

The Nikon D3000 is available through various online resellers starting at US$498.99.
