      Though the Nikon D3000 was replaced in August 2010 by the Nikon D3100, it is still a great, low-cost choice for someone just getting into photography. It was my first DSLR, and it has definitely taught me a great deal about how to compose and take photos. There are handy auto and scene modes for when you are first getting into photography, as well as manual, aperture priority, shutter

      priority, etc for when you want to try to get more into the art of taking photos.

      The size of the D3000 is perfect for my small hands, and the image quality is great. The sensor is 10 megapixels, which is perfect – enough for large prints, but not overly much as to create gigantic files. I bought mine with the kit lens refurbished in 2010 for $450, and now that it’s been replaced it should be a great deal less – perfect cost for a first camera.

      The cons of this camera include:

      -no built-in AF motor. If you have any old AF lenses from film SLRs (not a big con as there are many AF-S choices with autofocus), they won’t autofocus with the D3000 – you’d have to manual focus. AF lenses won’t autofocus as they need ...

      a body with a built in motor, unlike AF-S lenses which have the motor built into the lens. If you’re just starting out, this shouldn’t bother you because just about any lens you’d want or need is AF-S.

      - the lack of video. Again, this shouldn’t bother too many people if you’re buying a camera for photography.

      - the ISO abilities. They’re not spectacular, but you can’t expect much

      more from an entry-level DSLR. They’re not terrible, but shooting above ISO 800 gets grainy and I try to avoid it.

      Overall, I give this camera and 8 out of 10. I’ve had the camera for almost 2 years, and it’s still going strong, even after I once accidentally dropped it. My shutter count is over 45,000 and the D3000 is said to have a life of over 100,000, so it will last.
