  • Nikon D3000

    Hi everyone,
    I've been looking into cameras to take on travel trips, and I came across the Nikon D3000. It looks like it has good reviews, but I wanted to see if anyone else knew anything about it? Thoughts? Or other suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Any suggestions besides the Nikon D3000?

      I really want to get a Canon Rebel XS. I've heard from many people that it's a good camera. Now if I can only find it for a reasonable price.

        A few friends of mine have the model the D3000 replaced, the D40. And they LOVE it. One of my mom's friends has the next model up, the D5000, which she also loves.

        Whenever I can afford an SLR, I'm going for the Nikon D3000 if they still make it at that point.

          Thanks for your responses! The Nikon D3000 looked like a nice camera too...I saw it at Best Buy. And they were sold out, so that's a good sign.

            Haven't looked at the D3000, but I've got a D5000 and it's great. I've heard that I'm part of a large crowd of people who really like the Nikon menuing, over other brands. Nikon really did it right.

            Good luck getting your camera! Photography really is a lot of fun.

              I own the D3000 and I can tell you that its an excellent camera for people new to the SLR world (which I was). It gives you a lot of creative control but be careful because its not the camera that gets you, its the lens you'll want to buy after you get it.

              However, I will say that aimsters suggestions for the next series up comes with video, where the D3000 does not have that. If the money isn't an issue, I'd get the next step up for more bells and whistles.

                Thank you! I went back to Costco again and looked at the D90...it's huge, but looks like a really great camera. I'll check out the D5000 as well.

                Thank you...I know the D90 has video options and the one from Costco comes with two separate lenses.

                By the way, do you use the D3000 to take pictures like the one in your siggy?
