|Nikon D3000 Digital SLR Camera Body Incredible Pictures. Incredibly Easy. The Nikon D3000 is a high-performance DX-format SLR that delivers superb images and boasts a range of functions which make photography simple and fun. Nikons intelligent Guide Mode offers incredibly user-friendly in-camera assistance enabling even beginners to capture wonderful images. The 10.2-megapixel image sensor and fast autofocus performance ensure precise detailed images. The large 3-inch LCD screen is highly convenient for composing and reviewing images and makes it easy to use the in-camera retouch menu that enables you to modify images without a computer. Key Features: Intelligent Guide Mode In-camera guidance is provided by the new Guide mode which employs an easy-to-use interface that makes it easy for first-time users to select shooting modes. Additionally after selecting an item in Guide mode camera settings can be further adjusted in order to obtain optimal results. Nikon DX-format CCD Sensor; 10.2 Effective Megapixels At 10.2 effective megapixels the D3000 produces high-resolution images that enable beautiful enlargements without loss of sharpness. Normal ISO sensitivity is ISO 100 to 1600 but for added shooting versatility a Hi 1 setting increases sensitivity to ISO 3200. EXPEED Image Processing System The D3000 is equipped with Nikons EXPEED image processing system. EXPEED realizes excellent resolution long tonal scale and superb color while also making possible fast processing of the D3000s advanced imaging functions such as Scene Recognition and Active D-Lighting. Scene Recognition System This feature improves accuracy for exposure white balance and autofocus by analyzing color and illumination over the entire scene milliseconds prior to shooting. It then adjusts the camera settings accordingly for optimal picture quality. Active D-Lighting The D3000 incorporates Nikons Active D-Lighting function which can vastly improve shadows and highlights of high-contrast scenes. Like the Scene Recognition System Active D-Lighting utilizes the 420-pixel RGB sensor to analyze a scene then adjust exposure to achieve images that closely resemble what the human eye sees. During processing this function also restores details in the highlight and shadow areas of the image that may have been lost. 6 Automatic Exposure Scene Modes Just set the Mode dial to Portrait Landscape Child Sports Close-up or Night Portrait for stunning results in otherwise challenging conditions. 11-point AF system with Multi-CAM 1000 Autofocus Sensor Module Employing 11-point autofocus driven by Nikons Multi-CAM 1000 autofocus sensor module the D3000 delivers fast precise focus over a wide area of the frame. Four versatile AF modes are available: single-point AF for stationary subjects especially ones that are off-center; dynamic-area AF for moving subjects; auto-area AF when you want the D3000 to automatically determine the proper focus method; and 3D-tracking (11 points) AF for maintaining focus on subjects even if the composition changes. 3.0-in. LCD Monitor Image playback and viewing menus is now easier than ever thanks to the 3.0-in. 230k-dot TFT LCD monitor. Text size is also 20% larger than on previous Nikon digital SLR cameras. Picture Control System The Picture Control System gives users the ability to customize key digital image capture characteristics to suit personal preferences.Six settings are available: Standard Neutral Vivid Monochrome Portrait and Landscape. In-camera Photo Editing After shooting the D3000s photo editing functions allow for in-camera retouching reducing the need for a computer to enhance or modify images. The D3000 introduces a new Miniature effect under its Retouch Menu that modifies images to look like pictures of miniature models. Each editing function is applied to a copy of the image with the original left unmodified. Nikon Integrated Dust Reduction System Dust reduction is handled by the Nikon Integrated Dust Reduction System. This is a comprehensive solution that reduces the generation and accumulation of dust as well as measures to remove dust. A key element of the solution is the Airflow Control System which directs dust away from the image sensor. The system also includes an image sensor cleaning function that activates automatically when the D3000 is powered on or off. This vibrates the low-pass filter (located in front of the sensor) to free it from dust.
