"My first SLR and I love it!"5.0 starson by mommacrystal
Pros: I did not need live view or video. After weeks of research fro something within my price range I was thrilled to find the D3000 was right there. I take loads of pictures of my kids, sports they play in and this camera hasn't let me down.
Cons: The ONLY thing I can think of is that when your looking through the viewfinder your nose is against the LCD, but I can definitely live with it!
Summary: I searched for weeks for something in my price range and I so wanted to step up from my point and shoot. Don't get me wrong, it's a great camera and fits in my pocket on the go. But I always dreamed of owning a Nikon so when I came across the D3000 I was excited. Photography is a passion that I indulge in quite often. I take walks with the kids, camera goes too. I even did a friends wedding with my D3000. Bottom line is that you have to explore all the settings to get a feel for it and honestly, it's not the camera who gets great shots, it's the photographer. Have you taken any great shots today?
