A CAMERA!!!!!!

It's been over three months now that I have been without a camera.  After months of researching, I am pretty sure that I have decided the Nikon D5000 is the camera I want to buy. This will be my first-ever SLR camera, my first-ever Nikon.

D5000 

Does anyone else have this beauty? Any thoughts on Nikon Vs Canon? I have been a longtime Canon user and I am seriously considering this big switch…… (Hopefully I can save enough money to buy it sometime next year)

I am curious to know what camera everyone else uses around here, so please enlighten me by sharing in the comments.  Thanks!

  1. I have a Canon 40D and I love the hell out of it. I’m a big time Canon fan, but there are just as many people who love their Nikons.
    Using a DSLR makes the whole photography experience so great. It gives you so much control!

    I worry about the size & weight of an SLR too, Greta.  I will probably end up getting my Canon G series for a point & shoot (awesome camera that I loved!) after I buy the NIkon SLR

  7. I don’t know anything about that camera but I did do a lot of research on Nikon’s and Canon’s in general and while I was set on Nikon, I changed my mind that I would go with a Canon….when that day comes that I have enough money to purchase one! I hope you get what you want for Christmas!

  8. Oh, it is absolutely beautiful!! I hope you’re able to get it … and soon. I’m a Canon 20D user. I have two friends with the same one. So, I like that, but I know so many people who are Nikon fans and think they also make great cameras. All that matters is that it’s a good fit for you. Happy wishing! You better be good so Santa delivers!!

  10. Nikon huh? Trader! Just kidding. I don’t know anything about that camera. My best advice though would to buy the body only and buy a 50mm lens, it’s my almost always lens, next to the 85mm.

    I might just buy the camera body now and buy the lens later, but we'll see!  Is the 50mm lens for zoom or macro?

  12. Hello, why doesn’t this stupid comment show up?

  13. The 50mm lens is great for portraits but rarely leaves my camera since it’s also just a great overall. It’s a prime lens (no zoom) so you “zoom” it by moving your body 🙂 Get the 1.8 to start (about $100 fir the Nikkor brand) or, if you can afford the jump go for the 1.4. Either are great for indoor, lower light shots without a flash. You won’t regret it – huge difference over any kit lens.
