NikonNikon D5000 SLR camera test : Digital SLR cameras are driving the current digital camera industry. Whereas compact cameras did this in the last few years, we see this role being taken over by the DSLR. At the time, I remember Nikon vouching for the DSLR camera - they saw themselves having a greater chance to differentiate in this segment than in the compact camera segment. Nikon has proven that it had the right vision. And once again, with the introduction of the new Nikon D5000, Nikon is in the limelight.

Nikon D5000 review - SLR body
The design of the Nikon D5000 has not been redesigned completely and it fits perfectly in the Nikon assortment, which is what we would expect from Nikon. It comes down to the fact that the Nikon D5000 is very similar to the current Nikon models within the DSLR assortment. No daring design changes were made which is not odd by any means since the design, and with it also the ergonomics, have proven themselves over the last few years. However, the D5000 DSLR may not be the most compact camera; cameras such as the Olympus E-620 are visibly more compact but once you've held a Nikon DSLR in your hands; you'll feel how it fits like a glove. Its hand-fit is simply perfect, a feature that is typical for a design that does not need any changes.

Nikon D5000 reviews - Dust redution system
Upon activating the camera, the built-in Dust Reduction system starts doing its job. However; if you want to start shooting right away, it only takes a brief touch of the shutter release button to be on your way. The Nikon D5000 features a dual Dust Reduction system. In addition to an electronic sensor cleaning, the inventive Airflow Control system ensures a dust-free image sensor. This extra measure is also found on the D60.

Nikon D5000 review - 12.9 Megapixel DSLR
The Nikon D5000 is a 12.9 Megapixel CMOS digital SLR camera with a vari-angle 2.7 inch LCD monitor including video (720p) support. The vari-angle LCD monitor is a novelty for Nikon and video capture support is continuing the trend that the Nikon D90 initiated. Additionally AF-tracking and 11-AF points support for 3D tracking (Nikon D3 technology) is added to Live View. The continuous speed of 4fps is average and the powerful EXPEED processor enables extra functions, such as image editing inside the camera among other things. In short, the new Nikon D5000 makes enough claims for interesting specifications to test the camera thoroughly. Read on for our findings in the following Nikon D5000 review.
