Nikon d5000 Review: "The Nikon D5000 is the perfect camera for spare-time photographers or even just for family. The Nikon D5000 totally uncomplicated which makes it appealing to recreational photographers. It also makes it a great gift for someone who loves to take pictures.
What I love about it is that it even though it has many high quality features yet is less expensive than many top notch models like the d90. This camera has the same sensor and video recording as the D90 yet it cost less."
