I've always loved photography. Years ago I invested heavily in a top-of-the-line 35mm camera, tripod, lenses, the works, and enjoyed years of going around snapping images and developing my film. But then began the digital revolution, and while I could see the point of being able to directly upload pictures and video to your computer in order to share them with friends and family, the digital cameras available all seemed lacking somehow. They didn't focus right, I couldn't get a clear enough shot, and action shots were out of the question, so I finally invested in a Digital SLR Camera.

After shopping around and comparing the various features, I finally chose the Nikon D5000 12.3MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens.

The Nikon D50000 is compact and incredibly powerful and takes pictures of incredible clarity. The view screen is 2.70", which means you can actually see what you are taking a picture of. The display is LCD and has a resolution of 230000 pixels. I can take JPEG and RAW images and take videos that have a resolution of 1280x720. There are eleven auto focus points, and you can use the automatic focus feature or the manual focus feature with the minimum focus being a distance of 11 inches, which means I can take shots up close and personal. It has a USB port so that it can be connected directly to the computer for easy uploading, and only weighs 1.24 lbs, which makes it light enough to take just about anywhere.

The only down side to the Nikon D5000 is that with its hefty price tag at $849.99, I'm always a bit paranoid about dropping or losing it, but I have no other complaints, and with its included features and outstanding quality, the Nikon D5000 is well worth the worry and the price.
