Same price as the D60 package sold last week on argos ebay outlet and still non VR lens,

still a good price though!
#2
Looks like a good price for a nice bit of kit, VR is not essential on a lens that length, its good starter set. H+
#3
Those that bought the D60 might be a bit upset.

This is sooo tempting, but I really want liveview...

S9600 is superzoom.

This has far less zoom, 3x zoom kit lens included. If you're willing to settle for lesser zoom, you're fine with this; if you really need further zoom, Nikon 18-200 lens isn't cheap, something FZ38/45 is better on budget.

Thank you people for your info . I had a S5800 for a short while then bought the S9600 after a few months I sold it yesterday to try another camera. Still finding my way in the photography world. Kind off missing my S9600 already :( as it had a nice feel and some features I liked.

You can't dismiss the D3000 purely on zoom. They are completely different beasts. No, the 18-200 isn't cheap, but the 55-200 is reasonably priced and gives a good range alongside the 18-55.

According to DPreview, the Nikon D3000 has a 23.6mm x 15.8mm sensor giving 12.3 megapixels whereas the Fuji S9600 has a 7.78mm x 5.83mm sensor giving 9.1 megapixels. That means the Nikon sensor is slightly higher resolution but on 8x the area of the Fuji one - so there will be less interference - and that will result in better pictures.

The D3000 is going to be a bigger beast to carry around. The Fuji is definitely more compact. The Nikon (or ANY DSLR) is going to be better suited if you want to take your photography more seriously and start taking control over your settings.

Don't get me wrong, the D9600 is a great piece of kit - but it won't match the D3000 in picture quality.
#11
Sorry, got the megapixels count wrong for the D3000 - it's 10.2, not 12.3. Still a bit higher than the Fuji but it's the physical sensor size that really makes the difference.
#12
Woah scorching price! Tempted to buy one since my G10 went kaput. Nice find :)
#13
Haha another 3 sold since last checked.

As someone else has pointed out, you could get the D3000 and add a 55-200 to give a decent range of zoom but I don't think the D3000 can shoot video. But if you want to get more into photography a DSLR is the way to go.

If you need the big zoom range but also need video then a Panasonic TZ38 or TZ45 would be a better option and represent an upgrade from your previous camera.

Choices.............

For video the new D3100 is a better bet - but that's why the D3000 is being sold off!
#16
Must be good value ,someone bought 20!
#17
Very hot :) I bought my d40 for this price a couple of years ago.

I take it this isn't the one with HD Video recording capabilities?
banned#18
The VR lens camera kit is £60 more at amazon, I think I'd prefer that personally...

Its Crazy how the prices are dropping... its a excellent buy. If you need VR you can sell the stock one online and get a VR kit one for pretty cheap.

I saw the D7000 specs and wanted one so bad! Hope the D5000 will drop in price soon.. thats the one I am keeping my eyes peeled for. The CMOS sensor on that is the same as the D90 and its got all the bells and whistles like live view,HD video, higher ISO, and a swiveling screen

as for this D3000- AWESOME price
#20
I have this camera and love it

Great price (£3.99 delivery also)
#21
saw the last one the other day....look at confirmed sales or whatever its called on ebay...look at the speed the last ones sold at on the last day..(11th sept)...I thought it was dodgy!haha! It was on sale for a couple or 3 days and the last day the last 40 or whatever go with seconds apart.

Really good camera for the price but the only downside is it's not too good in low light situations . This pic was taken indoors in daylight at iso 800 with flash and you'll just get away with it for average size prints. For an SLR the grainy noise in the darker areas is quite poor performance. ISO 1600 is worse especially with no flash! Best to limit the max iso to 800 in the settings and it it's fine for most situations the amateur user would throw at it.

Can't complain at the price as i paid £349.99 from Argos a month back. This is far better than the D60 as it has 11 point autofocus and active D lighting to brighten up darker areas of photo's. (Turn off active D lighting in darker situations to reduce grain slightly in poor light)

ISO 800 indoors with flash.

Far better in bright daylight.

Why would you want a D60 over this?
#24
I'd kinda like this, but dunno whether to shell out over £270.00.

Good price, don't expect them to be around too long.
#25
just hanging on for argos to sell off the D5000

This camera is a steal at £270 and it's not to be missed. Even if you don't like it and decide to sell it, second hand ones have been going for around £300 on ebay.

Yes the D5000 has far better low light performance but the video capability isn't up to much apparently. I wouldn't pay £464 it's at now unless the price drops considerably.
D3100 is also apparently better but £579.

The D3100 has better spec than the D5000? - http://www.dpreview.com/previews/Nikond3100/

Apart from the bracketing.

I'm taking my first step into DSLR, the low light performace is an issue, as I take alot of pictures indoors using a lightbox set-up, are there any entry level cameras that outshine the rest in these circumstances?
#28
Good price for the D3000, but the D3100 is just round the corner with live view and 1080p autofocus video.
#29
yup D3100 is double the price...

No

when asked the age old question of "should I buy this" on the internet...never commit to a yes and a why thus leaving you open for litigation in the event the item self destructs and takes off the buyers left arm, eye and pet hamster.
when a buyer cannot give more details and simply begs the world to answer their quandary I find it helpful to simply give them a solid answer, doesn't matter which, as they did just do the equivalent of yelling in tesco "should I buy this?" which would usually just get funny looks and the crazy people answering

...I'm the internet crazy



...but it's a great price, voted hot! :D
