Nikon added some more cameras (the initial list was too limited, more cameras are involved). Second,…
Nikon D5000, the bad numbers
In order to complete our previous information about the recall of some Nikon D5000 for an issue of startup lock-down, I want to share with you the data from Nikon Watch. They had the patience to verify full sets of serial numbers to try and find quickly the bad apples (bad serial numbers in need…

Download the Nikon D5000 manual
The Nikon D5000 is the new entry-lelve SLR photo camera from Nikon. But they don’t want to make it easy for you to find its user manual in a downloadable electronic format. So, I got the D5000 User Manual (PDF document) available for download. The French version is also available.

We thought so, but it has now been confirmed by the senior general manager AMC division of Sony’s Digital Imaging Business group, Toru Katsumoto: The inclusion of…

Here comes the Nikon D5000
Finally, with the Nikon D5000, the yellow brand did not announce a successor to the D300 but a new entry-level SLR photo camera with a tilt-and-swivel LCD display. The Nikon D5000 is going to rock the competition a little. The screen probably comes from the success of the Sony Alpha 300/350, but the features are…
Nikon SLR with a tilt LCD
One participant to the forums of Somethingawful otained a full collection of pictures taken in Croatia during the shooting of a commercial where we can see a guy handling an SLR camera. On some images, it is possible to notice that it’s a Nikon and that it has a tilt-and swivel LCD display. If the…
Nikon rumour: Nikon D5000 at PMA09
The nearly-arrived new entry-level SLR camera from Nikon would not be named Nikon D65, but Nikon D5000. This is what seems to become the common consensus. It would be a strong contender with: 12.3 MP (possibly the same sensor that comes with the Nikon D300 and Alpha 700, in its simplified version) No built-in AF…
