Nikon D3000-D5000 DSLR Starter Kit

Nikon D3000-D5000 DSLR Starter Kit with Nikon School DVD Fast, Fun & Easy III / IV and D-SLR System Case

I do not write many reviews but feel compelled to do so in this case because I found a number of other tests are ambiguous or contradictory. I could not find a clear and simple EXACTLY what this case can easily accommodate, and ended up waiting much longer than I needed before I feel comfortable enough to order this case. I really wish I had not expected, as it turns out that this is a case of Nice, which takes a lot. Hopefully this review will help other people who want a clear understanding of the capacity of the case.

In simple terms, the main compartment of this case easily and fits comfortably: A Nikon D3000 or D5000 with 18-55mm Lens gasket, a 55-200mm Lens and battery charger and cord. All you need do is remove and reconfigure the partitions so that you use two partitions to create three sections within the main compartment. Simple as that. If you do not want to store your camera with the target, no problem, it works pretty well, and even create a touch more space in the main compartment.

The front zippered pocket stores a shoulder camera, video cable, USB cable, and several SD cards. It could contain a little more, but that's all I have in there. There are also two small side pockets can hold extra SD cards or other small items rather flat of your choice. For those who really want to carry the manual around, there is room for it to remain on top of the main compartment. The top of the case will be easily bent over her and closed loop with no problem.

Hopefully this helps. No guesswork, no speculation. Just a factual report of what that case holds comfortably. In short, I think it's a great deal for the Nikon D3000 or D5000. It is well constructed and comfortable to wear, and although I have not yet seen the DVD seems to be a valuable bonus.

Nikon D300 (Body Only) Price

Nikon D300 DX 12.3MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)

Or buy about ... The Nikon D300 was the most cost effective way for a photographer to Nikon digital transition in many of the characteristics of a camera for professional use. Since its inception in the summer of 2007, the Nikon D300 has had some of its amazing features as its 12.3MP CMOS sensor, re-appropriation of other less expensive models (D90, D5000, ok, in fact, they have changed the sensor slightly) and has even been replaced by a slight upgrade in the D300. However, this camera is an excellent choice for photographers seeking to build an enterprise or a back-up able to model, and with the inevitable fall of the prices used, due to the introduction of newer models, it value seems to be an increasingly better.

It beats the Nikon D90 and D5000 in:

1. Build and weather sealing (ie magnesium alloy vs plastic hardened, Yes vs. No)
2. NEF 14-bit against 12 bit NEF RAW
3. Top shutter speed (1 / 8000 against 1 / 4000)
4. Compact Flash Card vs SDHC
5. Better Detection AF (51 points against 11)
6. Viewfinder 100% vs. no
7. Much greater rate buffer (99 vs. 22)
8. Ability to use older lenses manual focus with counters (also requires D5000 G lenses or focusing everything else is manual)
9. Balances, the more heavy pro lenses much better
10. Several checks are on the surface of the device rather than hidden in submenus
11. The life of the shutter (150, 000 hits compared to 100,000 in D90, perhaps less in D5000)

Nikon D90 and D5000 beat:
1. Slightly better sensor performance (much has been made on the subtle improvements to the original probe into the body later. However, it should be noted that most tests online that you read are conducted in jpeg, This defaults to the D300 sensor in 12-bit, as the best measure in the D90 and D5000, in this case, the new probes the more he points out. turning the device into 14-bit NEF improves performance in low brightness, especially in the fight against the shadow noise, which what most tests measure. In other words, the tests usually short change the ability of the D300 sensor for newer models)
2. Enhanced Live View
3. Fashion Video
4. D5000 has a swiveling LCD screen

And this is only the surface. If you've been considering buying one, the best time is when the used prices down by about one third of the original MSRP (my experience anyway, you're more likely to have a camera at the height of his performance, without biting the bullet on costs too).

Nikon D300s 12MP (Body Only) review

Bought this camera recently to replace the many years, but always faithful Nikon D200. Took both a road trip recently and was very please with the Nikon D300. The autofocus was super fast and accurate. The video feature was a nice bonus. Although I did not use it often, it comes in handy when I want to show my friends and families of some scenic views that I meet.

The ability to shoot multiple frames per second and the autofocus system is able to keep with it exceeded my own expectations. The image quality and low noise level is Nice. I was able to fully ISO-1600 which I could not before using D200.

Nikon Backpack for DSLR

Nikon Backpack for DSLR, Lenses, and Laptop

I was preparing for a trip and wanted to combine my laptop and my D70 in a bag unique. I had just ordered a LowePro AW computrekker when I saw this bag Nikon.

I thought I'd have a bag Nikon true for all my Nikon gear so I ordered this bag that I could understand returning the Lowepro.

Even if the bag is well built, lighter and looks great I was not impressed at all with housing for my D300. The storage camera is designed for the body with a small lens, perhaps the 18-70 supplied with the kit. With the 18-200 mounted on the camera just does not fit in the provisioning for the camera.

The rest of the bag seemed awkward to access and there was plenty of room for accessories.

In my opinion, the LowePro AW Computrekker is a lot of far superior. Although it is a little bigger than it's worth its weight in gold. I was disappointed with the functionality of this bag Nikon.

Review Nikon D300s DSLR Digital Camera

Nikon D300s 12MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S ED VR II Telephoto Zoom Lens

This is a great camera, but Ken Rockwell is not really advisable. I am a previous owner D200, but I am very fond of this D300s. I still have much to do with this experiment. I love my custom setups with the lively colors of the landscapes and jewelry, but I always forget to re-set the standard when I'm taking photographs of people. I have not used the video as I want. One draw back I could not edit the video with my editing software Sony Vegas Movie, although it may have an earlier version of the software. Someone could do?

The 18-200mm Nikon lens is best done. Extremely versatile and can be the only goal you ever. I like the new locking system.

nikon D300 Grip review

When using the MB-D10 with the D300, you find that it is a great improvement in the MB-D200 (the D200 vertical grip). For one, it is magnesium alloy, and is much more robust. It is also weather sealed like the D300 body. It fits nicely and firmly, with the D300. It also has a further multi selector, which is a great feature added. MS-D10 (holder for AA batteries) also comes in a bag of very nice. Of course with this improvement is the increase in price as well!

If you want to reach 8fps on the D300, you can use the EN-EL4 / a battery with your MB-D10 or AA batteries (8 pieces). The ability to use AA batteries is a real plus point. Imagine having a long trip in which they can not have access to charge your battery EN-EL3e. Having the ability to use AA batteries means that you can bring a bunch of them and still be able to shoot ... even in the depths of the desert.

Nikon EN-EL3e Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery for D200, D300, D700 and D80 Digital SLR Cameras review

For starters, if you look at this battery, you can get a D200. If yes, you have no choice in the matter. Whether it's 1 star or 5 if you do not buy this battery you have a clipboard of $ 1700 (yes, I am the proud owner of a D200-mode non-clipboard).

Secondly, the battery is not what is at fault. The D200 is a monster of energy. It sucks the poor little guy dry as a starving man at an all-you-can-eat. (This is the price of the incredible features offered by the D200. Bettery If you want longer life, you have to provide much of what makes the D200 the plant it is.) Wonderfullly The EL3e performs in the D70 / 50, providing a period slightly longer than the recall EL3a (the third contact is on EL3e for D200 only. The 70 & 50 times ignore).

Bottom line: There's nothing wrong with this battery. If you have a D70 or D50, you can buy with assurance that it has taken many people on a single charge. If you have a D200, you can buy because you realize then that * you * determine the lifespan of the battery. A VR lens already cut a "short" battery life even more. Thus, you can complain about the battery being the issue or the D200 is the question. Only the latter is correct. If you want long battery life, returning to the D70.

Nikon D300 review

Before the D300 (and sooner rather than later, the D3) I thought the move to comprehensive devices from Canon. I had seen what the Canon 5D could do with sharpness and color - results that I could not leave my Nikon D200. When Nikon announced the D300 and D3, I was skeptical. The D3 was beautiful, but is out of my price range for now. And the D300 seemed, at best, an improved outcome over the D200.

But I have a lot of money invested in Nikon gear, so I thought I would give the D300 a shot. After all, I could always go back to Amazon for a full refund.

First impression? The D300 is anything but evolutionary - it is a revolution for Nikon, and he is forever banished from Canon thoughts from my mind.

Just shooting around the house, I found that the D300 can render colors, even true-looking, vibrant reds, like nothing less than super-best film Fuji Velvia. Soon I'l Turn It Loose in the Garden of the Gods and see what he can really do. Best of all, the D300 can produce wild colors * and * natural skin tones - in the same plane! I do not understand how this is possible, for jacking up the intensity of a color camera is a disaster for the skin of people. But Nikon has done.

I am especially fond of Nikon's menus and user controls. They are much more intuitive than Canon, at least for me. And although there are a host of new features compared to the D200, I managed to discover them all - and learn them all - without ever cracking open once the user manual. Talk-intuitive!

About these new features ... wow! Multi-level zoom on the back screen, so you'll never be certain that your plans are under discussion or not. The screen itself is huge and offers the highest pixel density LCD screen anywhere. Your pictures is great, even before you get prints made. Dozens of other features with varying degrees of usefulness, I leave you in general more involved you say about these.

What counts for me is colorful, great skin care, and a camera that will not ever distract me from my time, forcing me to think about how * * To make the shot. The D300 delivers on all three counts.

Nikon D300s review

Hello everyone, My name is Daniel and I'm about as serious as you can and be considered "amateur". I was taking pictures on SLR since I was 10 years old on a Minolta film and I bought my first DSLR (a Nikon D50) and since then I have owned everything from a baseline Canon XSi all the way to the best camera I've ever handled ... the D300. I made the D3, D3S, D3x and the top of the range professional Canons $ 10k and is still my favorite all around camera. Here is the breakdown for that I love this camera and I'll give you a list of advantages and disadvantages. I love this device for many reasons ... [...]... not many people can not justify spending another $ 4000 (2-3 times more money) when they are looking to spend about $ 1,500 - $ 2,000 for a good digital SLR. So here are the advantages I see in D300 on the other Nikon consumer models.

Nikon D5000 12.3 MP review

Out of the box, my first impression was not the best, the size of the camera and feel more like my D40 entry-level than I expected. Of course there is the mobile LCD screen (which is more useful than I thought) and Live View button, but not much to separate the appearance and feel from the D40 mode.
Then I spent some time setting things up and shooting - and all of a sudden I'm in love with this thing.
- Menus, IMHO, are waaaay better than anything I saw on other Nikons (D40 and D200 main experiment) and making adjustments AUTO ISO in one place, access to the settings info to the screen is really clean and clear LCD is great.
- The performance in high ISO for low light is good enough for my purposes. What you get some noise, but you get the shot - and if you have found the material for the Web and uses simple - it is perfect.

Nikon D5000 12.3 MP DX Digital SLR Camera review

Great Camera. If you're new to the game DSLR (like me) or you update and you can fork up the cash, it has certainly been worth it. It has a very concise, simple and easy to use interface, the buttons are well placed, and the swivel LCD screen is very nice and useful in certain situations (I love how it folds inward to protect the screen). My main purpose of this unit is still photos for the video is cool and a bonus is surprisingly better than I thought (but if you want to make serious HD video, I would go for an HD camcorder or something else instead ).

Nikon D60 10.2MP with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S review

 D60 is the upgrade for D40x which I owned previously. The differences between the two are too small to justify upgrading from D40x. If you own D40 and would like more resolution then D60 may fit the bill. For owners of D40x only real advantage is the VR lens, which is probably only slightly better than the non-VR one that comes with D40x (for the zoom range of 18-55mm). Off course not forgetting D-Lighting, which is a very publicized, but I saw no noticeable difference in quality. Using Active D-Lighting allows the camera to take longer to save the images. Might take a few seconds before you can review photos on the LCD.

Nikon D60 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera review

I've been using Canon PowerShot point-and-shoot digital cameras for the last 6 years, and why are so small, portable, and unobtrusive, I ended up taking a lot more photos that I did, because I had my camera with me. The good thing is that I took pictures a lot more, and most of them were very good (the camera gets most of the credit here). But the bad thing is that I started to reach the limits of what a "point-and-shoot camera can do.

The biggest problems I had with my compact point-and-shoot camera is the delay between shots and generally poor performance in environments with poor lighting. For most of the shots, these were not major problems, but when they were a problem, have been a huge problem, and there is not much that can be resolved without going to a better camera. I do not think I'm the first person to reach a brick wall when using compact digital cameras, which is why there are now some great options that do not cost a fortune.
