Nikon D3000 Review
3.5 Star Review  Imaging Resource - Oct 30, 2009

The Nikon D3000 is the replacement for the Nikon D40 and D60 digital SLR cameras, inheriting some features from each, including a 10-megapixel sensor, a simplified control interface, and a small body. The Nikon D3000 kit includes a Vibration Reduction zoom lens in place of the older ED lens that shipped with the D40. The D3000's special Guide mode is designed to make shooting in special circumstances a little easier for novices, and the Nikon D3000 includes an 11-point AF system for better coverage of the image area. Small and affordable, the Nikon D3000 takes up the mantle of one of Nikon's best selling digital SLR cameras, but does the mantle fit? Click for our full review of the Nikon D3000 digital SLR.

Camera Labs – Nikon D3000 review
4 Star Review  cameralabs.com - Oct 25, 2009

The D3000 is Nikon’s latest entry-level DSLR, featuring 10.2 Megapixels and an easy-to-use control system aimed at beginners or those upgrading from a point-and-shoot. It’s the true successor to the popular D60 and positioned below the D5000 in the current Nikon range. The D3000 inherits the sensor and body of the earlier D60, but increases the screen size to 3in and grabs the impressive 11-point auto-focus system of the higher-end D5000 and D90, not to mention their viewfinder guidelines. It’s a solid budget specification and the new Guide mode genuinely makes things easier for beginners, but the D3000 is up against tough competition in the form of Canon’s EOS 1000D / Rebel XS and Sony’s Alpha A230. In our full review of the D3000 we’ve directly compared the design, build and image quality of all three models, to help you make the right choice. So if you’re shopping for a budget DSLR, check out our Nikon D3000 review and HD video tour at Camera Labs!

Nikon D3000 (with 18mm-55mm lens)
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Sep 24, 2009

THE GOOD: Beginner-friendly Guide mode; nicely laid out interactive control panel; solid photo quality up through ISO 1,600. THE BAD: Extremely basic feature set; annoying multiselector switch. THE BOTTOM LINE: Its feature set is basic even by entry-level standards, but the Nikon D3000 delivers the photo quality and performance you expect when stepping up to a dSLR, with an optional interface thats very newbie friendly.

Nikon D3000 | 10MP - 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX VR Nikkor Zoom Lens
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Aug 19, 2009

The Nikon D3000 is an entry level digital SLR camera released in August 2009. Physically, this DSLR is compact and lightweight, making it more convenient to carry around than a conventional SLR. The D3000 borrows several features from its predecessors; a 10.2 megapixel CCD sensor and 3fps continuous shooting from the Nikon D60, plus an 11-point autofocus system with 3D tracking from the D90. This camera has a comparatively larger LCD screen at a full 3 inches. Another new feature is the guide mode, which teaches beginners how to properly use the D3000, and how to get the most out of their new investment. The D3000 uses what Nikon calls “EXPEED” image processing, which allows the camera to automatically adjust internal settings based on the shooting environment. More experienced users can manually adjust a variety of camera settings including the flash, white balance focus and exposure. Features 3” TFT LCD display ... PROS: (1) large " display (2) great price for a first time DSLR buyer (3) utilizes easy to find, affordable and capacious SD/SDHC storage (4) Not very heavy (5) ISO sensitivity up to 1600 ... CONS: (1) not a very big upgrade over the previous generation models (2) slow buffer

D3000 a excellent FOREVER camera
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Extremely easy to use. Compact, feels good in my hands. As easy as point and shoot.

Already have used my new D3000 several times and the picture taking is a complete pleasure. The only bad one s were my own fault. The kit lens can be used in most indoor photo sessions. And the touted 55-200mm for most outdoor situations.. However, I ve found that using the Tamron 18-200 has given me a single lens that can be used in a wide variety of shooting conditions. Should have just gotten the D3000 body and the Tamron lens..

the D3000 Nikon SLf
5 Star Review   By member wade5533 - Jul 7, 2010   

Strengths: Simplicity

Weakness: a wee bit heavy

I purchased this camera as I was about to leave for a 10-day vacation in Switzerland. This camera did not disappoint me; it was simple to use; took absolutely beautiful photos. I especially like having to use the view finder instead of the display to shoot the pics. Displays have always presented problems for me especially since I am near sighted with an astigmatism. So pleased I made this purchase, but I do not like the Nikon DX zoom lens I purchased with this camera. It is just not do the job.

Bad Photo
5 Star Review   By member grandfanale - Dec 8, 2009   

Strengths: You can't take a bad photo unless you forget to remove the lens cover!

Weakness: It makes you look so good your always taking photo's while everyone else is eating pie.

The photo's are sharp wide and as a non expert I leave it on Auto mode and point & shoot. It's user friendly and as you feel like taking on more it guides you thru with ease.
