The Nikon D3000 is a new entry-level digital SLR camera designed to make photography simple and accessible. This D3000 is primarily aimed at anyone who wants to take photos without having to worry about what the camera is doing. Nikon D3000 is a hard-plastic construction that feels great in the hand. The D3000 Nikon’s newest inexpensive DSLR. It’s a good camera all by itself, but it’s the worst DSLR Nikon has ever made. Nikon D3000 is inferior both in operational speed and ease of use, as well as inferior in technical image quality.
The Nikon D3000 also features a 10.2 megapixel sensor, EXPEED processing system, 3-inch LCD screen, 3 fps continuous shooting and 11-point autofocus system. The D60, which is replaced by the D3000, was Nikon’s best-selling DLSR. The D3000 continues in this mold, but if anything, is even easier to get to grips with thanks to the introduction of a new ‘guide’ mode. The D3000 shares the same 10 million pixel CCD sensor as the D60, and almost exactly the same body and design, but this camera is more than a cosmetic revamp of the older model.
Nikon D3000 spec
The Nikon D3000 is inferior both in operational speed and ease of use, as well as inferior in technical image
quality. Lets take a tour of the Nikon D3000 in more detail. The front is obviously nominated by the Nikon F lens mount, above which sits the built-in flash. More positively the camera is as well made as you’d expect a product bearing the Nikon logo to be, solidly constructed and with a control layout Thank goodness the D3000 has no video mode or Live View. Nikon D3000 has ADR. The D3000 does not automatically correct lateral color fringes as do the D5000 and above. The D3000 introduces a new GUIDE mode, which attempts to help everyone figure out how to use these complex cameras. The best thing about the D3000 is that Nikon gave it one of the best menu systems yet.

The D3000 shoots fast enough. Autofocus is super-fast. The D3000’s speed and ergonomic problems come in two categories. The long processing time for ADR, and sloppy playback speed and ergonomics.

Do all Nikon lens fit all Nikon cameras?
Yes, except for very old models before 1959. It will “fit” because Nikon has the same bayonet mount called the Nikon-F mount. Nikon d3000 lenses will fit in all Nikon cameras.
