Nikon D3000 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

Digital cameras are one of those products on the market where price shouldn't be an object. Like a camcorder, MP3 player or smart phone, digital cameras can range widely in price. But, because of the competitive nature of the field, the price will almost always dictate the quality, and vice versa. If you find yourself with a quality digital camera - especially an SLR camera - you will pay for it. But, you will get in return a product that will last many years and one that will provide exactly the specifications that you have been looking for.

For $549.95, the Nikon D3000 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera is average priced for a device of its lengthy list of capabilities. It can be purchased in many places for as little as $448 dollars. Among the specifications available on the camera are an extremely high 10.1 megapixels, a 2.5 inch LCD display screen, an 18-55 millimeter lens, a fast and accurate image processor and a live view function that allows you to view pictures in real time.

The 10.7 megapixels offered by the Canon Rebel is almost double the amount of the 6 megapixels common on other digital cameras - the kinds often sold for around $250. The camera also has its own built in cleaning system, and features a self-cleaning sensor unit and Dust Delete Data Detection that is used to keep the inside of the system clean and functioning properly.

With a three frame per second menu, you can give yourself the opportunity to capture live action in images. Perfect for sports and for facial expression, the three frames per second can capture three phases of a baseball swing or basketball shot, and can also help to find a picture where everyone is smiling or everyone has their eyes open at the same time. The camera also allows you to take still shots from your videos for use as high-qualityy and high-pixeled images.
