Welcome again, It's been while i have not write a new post. I don't know what happen to me but everyday i think i will write a new post. Many ideas come to my mind about blogging or thinking i will write about this and i will write about that but the result is here that so many days gone, without writing any post.

I used to thinking about bloging about Nikon D5000 in this blog. I search many website about Nikon and also see Amazon*. So i would like to share some best part of Nikon D5000.

D5000 has 2.7-inch Variable-angle monitor. You can just flip it, tilt it, turn it, stow it or whatever you like do it. The new Vari-angle monitor adds a flexible dimension to Live View shooting, which vividly shows your subject in real-time. Now with this freely adjustable monitor, taking great shots and movie clips with Live View is easier and more enjoyable than ever. Variable-angle monitor i have see in some other Camera such as Olympus E-620,Olympus E-30, Sony ALFA 300, 350, Sony Cyber-shot DSCH50, etc

As in D90 , D5000 also feature D-Movie high defination (HDTV 1,280 x 720 pixels) Video recording. You can choose D-Movie file sizes from three different file types depending
on usage: for photo sharing web sites and blogs 320 x 216 pixels; for viewing on PCs 640 x 424 pixels and; for viewing on HDTV 1,280 x 720 pixels.

If you simply rate Nikon D5000, it's middle between the D60 and D90 in Nikon's DSLR line-up. The function of Nikon D5000, borrows from both cameras, combining the same 12.3 MP Cmos sensor as the D90 and D300 with innovative, user friendly graphic user interface (GUI) from the D60. But D5000 has Live View feature where D60 doesn't. Live view feature bringing D5000 in line with competitive with the other brands such as Canon EOS and Sony Alfa.

Great post!
Can you preview the exposure in the LiveView?
I heard that its a fake LiveView and that the picture in the LiveView is not affected by the values change in aperture or speed!
Can you confirm that to me, please?

Helder Neves Thanks for your comment,
I did not notice exposure in live view. But it's good information for buyers for D5000. Notice the exposure in live view.
If any other friends no about this hope to share in this blog

Nikon D5000 is a great camera. Way better than the entry level D3000 but just a little bit lower specs than D90. The swivel+tilt screen is the selling point.
