I love this camera!

Comments about Nikon D3000 Digital Camera with 18-55Rmm and 55-200mm lenses:

I totally love this camera and it is a great camera for someone that needs a little assistance from the automatic settings to get wonderful photos. I can't even begin to tell you all the wonderful compliments that I get about my photos from this camera and people asking me what kind of camera it is. The 2 lens sizes are necessary!!!

I really like my Nikon camera!

By

Comments about Nikon D3000 Digital Camera with 18-55Rmm and 55-200mm lenses:

I received this camera as a gift - lucky me! And I have to say I love it! It takes professional pictures, and its has a great zoom with the 18 - 55...although I would like to get closer sometimes. When I have the money, I would like to invest in a higher resolution lens to take even better pictures. As a mommy of two under two, this camera is great for taking pictures when my little ones are running all over the place. It is rather large, and a little heavy though - so be careful when outdoors or when getting close to your children/animals. You can edit all of your pics on the camera, which is great. I am still learning about everything on the camera (I have only owned it for about three months or so). I wish there was a way I could view what I am taking a picture of on the screen, rather than looking through the viewfinder...no live view shooting. I miss that a lot. I also wish that the lens would automatically zoom with a button, rather than having to do it by hand. It takes several photos at once, with very fast shutter speed; and has several settings you can choose when taking pictures. I have to say the flash is very bright...

Best Camera I've Ever OWned

By

Comments about Nikon D3000 Digital Camera with 18-55Rmm and 55-200mm lenses:

I absolutely love this camera! I bought this camera about one year ago and have been in love ever since. It is fairly easy to use, especially if you are familiar with all the bells and whistles associated with SLR cameras. The pictures turn out GREAT! It's lightweight as well and won't hurt your neck or back if you are wearing it on a strap while walking around. The Nikon D3000 features multiple settings which are easy to use and also comes with a downloadable operation manual that surprisingly isn’t confusing. All of my friends constantly comment on how great my pictures are when I use this camera. I can’t take all the credit because the camera does most of the work; I just frame the shot! The price is a little high but if you are looking for SLR camera, you cannot go wrong with this one. This is one of the best purchases I have ever made and would recommend it to anyone – an excellent choice!

        Comments about Nikon D3000 Digital Camera with 18-55Rmm and 55-200mm lenses:

        I recently became a parent and decided to upgrade from my point and shoot in order to get better and faster shots of my rambunctious daughter. This camera was the best choice as far as quality and price. I checked reviews on several cameras and shopped around in the stores before finally choosing this one. 

        The camera features an automatic mode (which I use most of the time) and also has a manual mode in case I want more control. The picture quality is excellent. I get clear crisp images all the time. The shutter speed is soooo much better than my point and shoot. I love the continuous shooting mode. It lets me take several shots in a matter of seconds! Great for taking photos of my little one on the move! 

        The 18-55mm lens that came with my camera is great however, I am more interested in doing close up portrait photography so I got the camera which also came with the 55-200mm lens. Having both lenses has been really helpful. 

        All in all, I love just about everything about this camera. The only drawback if I had to choose one would be the fact that it does not have the ability to view your subject on the screen before you take the shot. You HAVE to look through the viewfinder. I was so used to that on my point and shoot so it took me a bit to get used to NOT having that particular feature. If you are looking for a great camera this one is a really great choice. It doesn't matter if you are new to photography or not. There is a guide mode which will help you along with using it. I am very glad I chose this camera!

        Easy to use, even forbeginners

        Comments about Nikon D3000 Digital Camera with 18-55Rmm and 55-200mm lenses:

        I had been on the market for a DLSR since fall of 2009. I've always owned Nikon point and shoots so when I started reading reviews of DSLR's I obviously leaned towards Nikon. Living rural, I was unable to to run out and handle any cameras right away. I did a ton of my research online and on different photography message boards. Most people spoke of Canons but my experience, again, was with Nikons.

        When I did the opportunity to pick up a Nikon, I loved it.I fit in my hand like a glove. I also had no experience with a DSLR and loved that the controls and functions were much like my point and shoot. I was able to start shooting with it right away on automatic. Once I felt comfotable with going to manual I looked to the manual for help. It honestly didn't/doesn't in my opinion give you the support you need (beginners) for switching over to manual mode. I ended up buying a separate book that explained everything much more clearer.
