Nikon D5000 DSLR arrives


Nikon is at the top of its game with the latest DSLR from the company, the highly vaunted D5000 that looks set to blow the rest of the competition in its class away. Why do we say so? It comes with a robust feature set as well as simple operability that is backed by Nikon’s superlative technology, making it the perfect choice for folks who are about to enter the DSLR game for the first time as well as those who want to upgrade and purchase a digital SLR which matches their experience level in order to reach greater heights of photographic expression whenever they press the shutter button. Check out the impressive list of specifications and features right after the jump.

The D5000 first of all comes with a versatile Vari-angle LCD display which can be viewed from a standard position flush against the camera back, but depending on the situation you’re in, you can opt to have it swing out or rotated/tilted to suit you and your subject. This unequalled freedom of movement will be able to further increase the type of angles you can make in your shots. When not in use though, this monitor can be stowed away with the LCD panel facing the camera’s back to protect it from any accidental knocks. It measures 2.7″ across diagonally and comes with a 230k pixel resolution.

Other features include a 12.3 effective megapixel CMOS sensor, Nikon’s very own EXPEED image processing system, a wide range of compatibility with a comprehensive selection of NIKKOR lenses, smooth tonal gradation, outstanding color reproduction, and low noise courtesy of a wide ISO sensitivity range. In addition, the help of Scene Recognition System with Face Detection and Active D-Lighting will reproduce even more vibrant images. Would you pick this up as your next DSLR upgrade, or will you choose something else?
