Right ok but 'how much'?
#5
This is an excellent starter SLR - I can't believe you can enter the real world of quality photography for so little these days.
#6
Just had a quick google about. Am I right in thinking that 1158 points would equate to £11.58 if spent instore and £46.32 if spent on tesco deals?

I also have a D3000, but I find the Nikon software is a ******* to get to grips with - am I doing something wrong ?
#11
really good price!
#12
Great deal. If only the D5000 was reduced by as much. I have the D60 and the D3000 is not really different enough to warrant an upgrade.
#13
I sold an old D70 for about this much last year, so I now know I was very lucky, at least now these cameras have advanced to a stage of maturity where they are cheap enough that you don't suffer massive depreciation because the technology has leapt on and left you with an unwanted antique. I may well go ahead an buy a DSLR again if it all looks like stabilising.

This D3000 looks amazing for the money. The difference between now and about 3 or 4 years ago is shocking.

I have this camera too and I don't think I've even looked at the Nikon software. What problems are you having with it?

I don't use it - I've never used the software that comes bundled with cameras since a disaster with some Nikon stuff years ago! I upload the photos from my mem stick slot in the PC and do basic touch up in windows itself if necessary

Ok i am looking to invest in a entry level dslr.... how does this match up against the canon 450d? I can only spend around £350-£400. Are they are others i should consider? Would appreciate any help from the experts please! :thumbsup:

Thing is, since the D60 / D40, on the entry level DSLRs you are stuck with the new lens technology.

As anyone into DSLRs knows, you end up with lens envy and you get round this by buying half a dozen lenses. With the older Nikons (and the high-end current ones), you can use the old SLR lenses with full auto-focus. WIth the newer entry level ones, you can only use the expensive lenses with the motors built in.

Does this also apply to the low end Canon DSLRs or is this a reason to go with the 1000d, how does this stack up against the Canon generally?

Also for those of us just starting out in SLR photography without a bog of existing lenses is the lens thing a real world issue?

It's a minefield isn't it :oops:
I've also been looking at the Pentax K-x
#22
I ordered one earlier, just had a call from Tesco saying to expect delivery in Mid-May. She said it's popular and a new model..... err no, it's not new, but I think the Tesco website should say delivery in 3-4 weeks!
#23
I am a Nikon guy but if I was buying an entry level camera right now I would probably get the Canon 1000D above the D3000. the Canon has live view which admittedly I don't use much on my D5000 but the D3000 really should have it too. The Canon also has exposure bracketing which is handy for HDRi.

The D3000 is basically just a D60 with a better AF system and the D60 is basically just a D40X so it is the same camera as it was 3 years ago with a new AF system. Lazy! lol

One big thing in favour of the Nikon is that it feels much nicer ergonomically than the Canons do. The entry level Canons feel cheap and plasticky and don't fit the hand well at all.

If you want a good choice of Cheap lenses, the Sony's are the ones to go with.

Sony bought out Minolta and there's hundreds of cheap decent lenses about.

And yes, once you get your SLR with the nasty kit lens, you will be looking around for a nice Macro lens, a decent Zoom lens, a nice wide-angle lens and possibly a portrait lens.

If you are going to be forced to spend £250 per lens then you're soon going to wish you invested an extra couple of hundred quid extra in the first place which allows you to go for the sub £100 lenses which in many cases can be just as good.

As for Canon v Nikon, it's a bit like buying a Ford v Vauxhall - there'll be plenty of people in both camps and some will say one is better than another. Personally, I don't find much in it when you're talking entry level kit - Canon started the proprietary DSLR lens thing so they are in the same camp I'm afraid.

By the way, that's not to say that old lenses won't work on Nikons, it's just that they don't have any autofocus ability because in the newer lenses, the motor is built into the lens and the money saved means that the cameras are slightly cheaper.

yes, it really is that silly - rather than buy a single motor with a camera, you now get a camera without a motor and then each individual lens has one!

Very informative ngm. Repped ya for that mate. :thumbsup:

Considering the 'lens' issue and wanting very good image quality what would your appraisal be of the Sony A500? It's considerably more money than this at £550 but I don't want to jump in too 'shallow' for want of a better term and end up wishing I'd paid a bit more for better quality and more lens availability.

Sony are also offering £80 cash back on this model at the minute.

Thank you in advance of your reply.

Good camera and lens for the money,the vr lenses alone used to sell for over £100 on the bay,shame it has no af motor as you are restricted to the more expensive lenses,the nikon d5000 has a nikon cashback offer when i saw it last week,maybe worth waiting to see if they have cashback for the d3000 coming soon,i remember getting £40 cashback on my d40 bringing it down to £230 with lens.Also nikons have a 2 year waranty which is good.

Too many to mention !

get Adobe lightroom...


I might just o that, I downloaded Picassa 3 which seems to be fairly good :)

Thats put my mind at rest - I've also got a Fuji S8000 (never had any problems with the Fuji software) but as soon as I downloaded the Nikon stuff it seems to have attached itself to it, so I've had to spend hours sorting it all out.

Apart from that the camera is A1 ! :)

This is also a reasonable deal (with a free bag) if you're not into Tesco points :thumbsup:

I like the Sonys. If I was in the market, it would probably be top of the list. You should be able to get it for less than £450 with a lens (£400 without) as Sony are currently offering £80 cashback

My OH has an A300 and a mate of mine has an A200 - between them they have about a dozen lenses and I doubt any of them cost more than £100 (and some of them were £50)
#30
So did anyone else get a call from Tesco saying they won't be delivered till mid-May?
#31
I have never had a DSLR but paid much more than this for many compact cameras over the last 7-8 years. Just ordered

There was £30 cashback on this but that's long gone
#33
its now body only :(
#34
Well that was a waste of time, last week I had a call to say it won't be delivered till mid-May, and now Tesco have called again to say it's a mistake, the product was body only and does not include a lens.

Cancelled.
