If you’re the type that simply must have the latest gadget the day it comes our – you know who you are – then head on over to Amazon to pre-order the articulating screen-equipped and HD video shooting Nikon D5000. Only the kit is available for purchase, but we hear the 18-55mm F.3.5-5.6G VR lens isn’t that bad anyway. $849. → Read More
Yes, dear readers, the D5000 we’ve all suspected existed (as late as tonight, look two posts down), does indeed. Nikon’s new high-end consumer DSLR has hit, and it looks like a serious contender with its wealth of features and sub-$1000 price point. It’s not going to walk on water or anything, but it makes for a very compelling alternative to, for example, my own Canon Rebel XSi.

Well, the rumors about the D5000 have been flying fast and furious, and now it looks like someone at the leak factory let some pictures out a bit early — “early,” that is, if this camera from Nikon is going to debut at their press event tomorrow as we believe.

The supposed spy shots do not reveal much of the D60′s successor (perhaps called the D5000) we haven’t covered over the last few months with the exception of what appears to be a movable, and perhaps live, LCD screen. That is, of course, if… → Read More
According to the rumor, the D5000 will take over the role as Nikon’s entry level DSLR. Details aren’t exactly plentiful, but it sounds like it would be on par with the D90′s image quality, lack a AF motor like the D40/D60 and have more than three AF points. Sounds possible, right? It basically would be a stripped down D90 which would hopefully come to market around the $600 mark. More as we get… → Read More
