I don't think that "inferior" is the correct term. Really they are targetted at different markets. The major advantage of the D90 is that it has an internal AF motor so …can focus on any AF Nikkor lens. The D5000 requires an AF-S lens to do the same thing. Other considerations are more external control buttons and wheels on the D90 and higher shutter lifespan. The one thing that the D5000 has that the D90 does not is the swivel LCD screen. Since I don't use live view at all, the swivel does nothing for me, but someone who uses it, especially for video may find it useful.

The Nikon D5000 is rated as an excellent camera by the major photography magazines online. It is considered an entry-level to enthusiast level DSLR. Costco has a package deal …for the camera body, two VR zoom lenses and a camera bag for 824.99. BHAudioVideo has a very good deal on the body only or with one zoom. A comparable camera, nikon d3000 with a two lens kit is 599.99 at best buy, at least here in our local store. I am wavering between these two but will likely own one of them in a few days. Good luck. oh and they kick a$$ botth of them i sware yo
Yes but older AF lenses that do not have an autofocus motor in them will not autofocus with the D5000.
If you have an AF, or auto-focus lens (like the kit 18-55mm lens) you can focus your lens prior to filming, but cannot auto-focus while filming. To manually focus, switch the …switch on the side of your lens to 'M' for manual. To focus, turn the outer focus ring on the lens until your subject matter is clear.
I agree. I have a d5000 and my close friend has a d3000. They're both great cameras capable of beautiful images, yet the d5000 has seemed so show more depth and just a bit sha…rper of images. It depends on lens and such too, but id go with the d5000 for sure, for only a couple hundred dollars more it is definitely worth the investment.
Too much. Just kidding... =) Go to your local Best Buy for details.
Yes in manual and non TTL auto modes.
Turn the camera on and press the Lv (liveview) button just above the OK button/arrows and to the right of the lcd screen. When you're ready to record, press the OK button; to …stop, press it again. If you'd like to lock the exposure (so it won't change in different lighting) press the AE-L/AF-L button (it has a picture of a tiny lock to the left of it) that is to the right of the viewfinder when recording.
Depends on what your wanting, if you want something more video based, you'll probably want the D5000. But, if you want something more photography based, you more likely to wan…t the D3100. I'm going with the D3100 instead of the D5100 because it looks more video based.
3500 AED. Just checked yesterday.
The D5100, the new edition of D5000 is the best
With few exceptions, you're going to be much better off only buying Nikkor lenses. Stay away from Sigma and Tamron. The D5000 doesn't have a focus motor, so only buy lenses AF…-S, AF-I, or G lenses if you want auto focus. I'll assume you already have the mediocre kit lens (18-55mm). Next you should invest in a fast prime. The Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G AF-S or the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G AF-S are both excellent lenses.
Yes zoom lenses are available for the D5000.
i dont know LOL! do you play starcraft 2?
Some criticisms of the Nikon D5000 are that is small and has less pixel resolution that other models. These criticisms are mainly aesthetic in quality and different people may… view them as positive points in regards to price point or size.
