The versatile Nikon D5000 Digital SLR Camera + 18-55mm Nikkor Zoom Lens is a powerful yet easy-to-use digital camera that also records High Definition movies.
This 12.3 mp camera is equipped with state-of-the-art features that help you get the most from your photo opportunities! One of the most significant upgrades from previous Nikon DSLRs is the Vari-angle LCD screen, which flips out from the back and can be adjusted to suit almost any viewing angle. Taking advantage of this display and Nikon D5000's Live View system, you can effortlessly frame your photos from awkward angles, such as shooting from ground level or above your head in a crowd.
The Nikon D 5000 also has an HD movie mode that records 720p resolution video at 24 fps. And unlike most digital cameras with video modes, this DSLR can deliver movies with beautifully blurred backgrounds, just like you see in the cinema!
The Nikon D5000 Digital SLR Camera truly excels in terms of picture quality. It boasts a top-quality CMOS sensor with an ISO range of 200 to 3200, and an extended range from 100 to 6400. Noise is exceptionally well controlled for smooth and detailed images rich in colour and tonality. Furthermore, the Nikon D5000 inherits the 11-point AF system from Nikon's earlier professional cameras, offering unprecedented accuracy, speed, and versatility in this price class.
The kit lens included in this package is a high-quality Nikkor with 18-55 mm focal length, enabling great photos to be taken in most situations. The lens also incorporates Nikon's acclaimed Vibration Reduction (VR) system, which optically stabilises the image at the moment of exposure for pin-sharp results, even in low light.
