Nikon D3000

Nikon D3000

Features include easy-to-use Interface, new Guide Mode

MELVILLE, N.Y. (JULY 30, 2009) – Today, Nikon Inc. announced the D3000 digital SLR camera, offering first-time D-SLR users and budding photographers an affordable option to experience the extraordinary picture quality of a Nikon D-SLR. The 10.2-megapixel D3000 has features that make it easier than ever to take great pictures, including the new Guide Mode, which lends a helping hand to new D-SLR users by suggesting, and in many instances making, appropriate camera settings for particular shooting situations, and an extensive Retouch Menu, which enables consumers to edit photos, even when away from their computer. The D3000, which offers an 11-point autofocus system, also leverages proven Nikon D-SLR technologies including exclusive EXPEED™ image processing, and an Active D-Lighting system, enabling entry-level D-SLR shooters to take stunning pictures even when conditions are challenging.

“The D3000 combines the best of both worlds, providing picture takers with the ease-of-use currently offered in point-and-shoot cameras alongside the speed, precision and exceptional picture quality that have made Nikon D-SLRs so popular,” said Edward Fasano, general manager for Marketing, SLR Systems Products at Nikon Inc. “The D3000 offers everyone the ability to discover the superiority of D-SLR photography at an affordable price point. We look forward to enabling more consumers to explore the possibilities of D-SLR picture taking and, more importantly, empowering them to capture life’s memories faithfully.”

Intuitive Assistance On-the-Fly

The D3000 features the all-new Guide Mode with an easy-to-use interface to help new photographers build confidence in using their D-SLR through on-demand, step-by-step assistance. The Guide Mode, easily accessed by the Mode dial on the top of the camera, displays common shooting situations and example images and then counsels the user with the corresponding scene modes and settings on the LCD screen. The Guide Mode also helps users easily review, organize and delete images.

Whether new to D-SLR photography or simply mastering new shooting techniques, the D3000’s Guide Mode assists users in exploring effective picture taking solutions at their own pace to make capturing great pictures even easier.

Small in Size, Big on Features

With elegant ergonomics, softly rounded corners, and a comfortable grip, the D3000 packs powerful technology into a compact form factor. Though the D3000 is tiny when compared to professional D-SLR cameras, it boasts a large, bright three-inch high resolution LCD screen, and now features an easier-to-read text that's 20 percent larger than in previous Nikon D-SLRs.

Quick performance and response are at the core of the D3000’s design and its 11-point autofocus system makes it easy to find and focus on a subject. Also, the D3000 offers split-second shutter response, eliminating the frustration of shutter lag—the ...

Nikon D5000

This easy-to-use SLR offers great image quality and HD movie capability at a knockout price

Click to see how Photo Zoom works This Article Features Photo Zoom . Click on the features of the camera diagram for more details.

Nikon’s second HD movie-capable D-SLR, the economy-priced D5000 shares many of the D90’s features, yet lists for $270 less. Note that like the D40 and D60, the D5000 doesn’t contain a focusing motor and so provides autofocusing only with AF Nikkor lenses that have one built in: the AF-S and AF-I series lenses. This is a concern only to potential users who have an arsenal of older AF-Nikkor lenses, as Nikon currently offers 29 AF-S lenses, with focal lengths from a 10-24mm zoom to a 600mm supertelephoto. This provides the D5000 user with 35mm-equivalent focal lengths of 15mm to 900mm—enough to cover just about any AF photo need.

Nikon D700

First Look: Nikon D700

Nikon's newest SLR offers many D3 features while reducing size and price

For the many photographers with their eyes on Nikon's full-frame D3, but who would prefer less bulk and expense, Nikon has introduced the D700. The new D-SLR shares many of the top-of-the-line D3's fine features, but in a smaller, lighter (yet still rugged) body and at a much lower price. The D700 even adds a few features not present in the D3, like a pop-up Speedlight flash unit and a sensor-dust reduction system.

Other Features

Like the D3, the D700 features Nikon's EXPEED image-processing concept, which improves image quality, operating speed (0.12-second startup, 40ms shutter lag like the D3, fastest for a D-SLR) and battery life (1,000 shots per charge, via CIPA criteria). Your choice of 12- or 14-bit A/D conversion and 16-bit internal processing further adds to the quality and speed.
User-Applied Firmware Updates
D3 and D700 users will be able to download firmware upgrades onto the flash media card and upload it when the flash is mounted on the camera.
