The D3000 has been designed for point-and-shoot enthusiast photographers looking for an easy introduction to DSLRs. The camera, which will replace the D60 when it is released in late August, features an interactive guide that can be accessed using the camera's mode dial. The guide features tutorials explaining the camera's features before taking pictures.
The camera sports the same 10.2 million pixel sensor as the D60, a step down from the D5000 released earlier this year. However, it features Nikon's Expeed processing system, has an ISO sensitivity range of 100-1600, expandable to an ISO3200 equivalent on Hi 1.
The D3000 has an 11-point autofocus system, a 3-inch LCD monitor, a dust reduction system, and is compatible with SD and SDHC memory cards. It will be available from 28 August at a retail price of £430 body only and £500 with the 18-55mm VR lens. For more details, visit nikon.co.uk.
