Nikon D3000 Digital SLR

 

Nikon's newest entry-level DSLR comes under the spotlight

The Nikon D3000 is pretty much the perfect entry-level DSLR. It offers robust build quality, excellent handling, superior performance and good image quality, while leaving out superfluous gimmicks like video and live view. The Guide mode will help...

Nikon D3000 review

 

Nikon's latest entry-level DSLR is aimed at noobs and novices. Is it a good first buy or a useless simpleton?

Nothing truly mindblowing here – just another very capable entry-level DSLR that’ll suit first-timers to a tee

Nikon D3000 DSLR camera

 

With digital SLRs well within the realm of mass-market affordability, what's to stop every family from owning one? Financial penury aside, a perceived uphill learning curve perhaps, and that's where Nikon's latest 10-megapixel entry-level model, the...

Small, lightweight yet sturdy construction, reliable results and responsive in operation, intuitive to use with or without Intelligent Guide deployed

No Live View option, no movies of any description, no built-in anti-shake

Though this DSLR offers a top resolution of "just" 10 megapixels, we found very little difference comparing results with that of a 12MP model. Indeed the D3000’s combination of lens and sensor provides detailed and crisp results for those looking to...

Nikon D3000 review

 

Probably the most beginner-friendly DSLR on the market

User friendly ; Feature-rich ; Great ISO performancel ; Sturdy build ; Excellent value

Guide mode needs improvement ; No Live View ; No decent video features ; No ISO button ; Sluggish image preview

Nikon D3000 18-55 VR Kit review

 

The D3000 is Nikon's latest entry-level SLR, replacing the D60. A £30 cashback offer (valid until 10 January 2010) makes it one of the cheapest DSLRs currently available. It inherits an 11-point autofocus system from the pricier D90 and D5000 models,...

Beginner-friendly features, but it fails to provide efficient controls and competitive image quality for when the beginners become more demanding.

Nikon D3000 review

 

The Nikon D3000 is an inexpensive digital SLR camera with manual features, but it also packs a useful Guide mode that you can use to change the camera's settings for different scenarios.

The Nikon D3000 isn't designed to 'wow' people, but instead to teach people. It's a digital SLR camera with in-built guides that can help novices select the appropriate shooting mode and settings depending on the style of photo they want to take. It's...

Nikon D3000

 

Review It's all very well having a decent printed manual along with your camera, but the 10.2Mp D3000 is the only DSLR to offer a user guide built in to the camera. Flick the mode dial on the top to the Guide position, press the Menu button, and the...

For beginners, the Nikon is a superb choice. Its built-in wizard is extremely useful and offers a huge amount of scope for learning. And, for those who quickly outgrow the basic kit lens, Nikon's range of pro lenses will surely satisfy, for a price....

Nikon D3000 v Samsung NX10

 

Digital SLR v hybrid camera

Panasonic and Olympus have been leading the hybrid charge with their Micro Four-Thirds cameras and are now joined by Samsung with its NX10. In this month's main camera test, we chiefly look at the Samsung NX10 but use it alongside the similarly-priced...
