no. once you have the camera and start looking through the viewfinder you really shouldnt be dissappointed with it. it seems very nice. the problem comes when side by side comparing it to something else, such as the D90.

Can't I tell the DOF from looking through the optical viewfinder (excuse the stupid question)?


no, you can't see DOF in the viewfinder, because the camera has the lens in its widest (smallest number, 1.4; 3.5; 5.6 for instance) aperture except when taking the picture (one of the noises when making a picture is the aperture snapping into the setting chosen).

People might hate me for saying this, but Ken Rockwell has a really good step by step guide of all the menus and how he likes them set

there are some settings that will slow down continuous framerate. i think these are flash (obviously), noisereduction (will happen automatically at high iso even when turned off), active d-lighting and of course you cant have a very long shutter speed.

Stunning! 8)

The D5000 is the choice of my mid-range DSLR , too bad it doesn't have built in motor to AF older lenses , other than that , it's good for me.

:idea: :wink: :D :shock: :)

Hail to D5000's interval shooting :D

http://karol.mozdzierz.com.pl/foto/thunders/ - take a look what was I able to capture :] 46 thunders caught during one storm, and it was not a very hard task :]

here's an example:

Image

Most of them were 15 seconds/F7.1/Iso 500, interval set to 17 seconds.

~Buffer began lagging today on continuous release after 4 - 5 shots, on a weak battery. Recharged - same results: indoors - outdoors, variable light, shutter, ISO, etc.... slow
SanDisk 4GB Extreme III class 6 card is writing like a class 2..... works fine in another camera....?!

Has now slowed down to a crawl as if it's laboring and can barely muster enough power to flip the mirror in any shutter release mode
