Nikon guides the way with the launch of the D3000

Nikon UK is pleased to announce its simplest, most accessible DSLR to date, the D3000. The new model is packed with user friendly, intuitive features which have been designed to guide DSLR first timers towards capturing professional looking images at the click of a button.

 

DSLR, pure and simple

The D3000 is designed for anyone who wants to take pictures without worrying about settings. You can select the type of subject or scene and the camera will do the rest, ensuring the correct parameters are set for the perfect shot, and the instant response time means you never miss a moment. The 11-point autofocus system ensures everyone is in focus, and the bright viewfinder means you get what you want, when you want it.

Great pictures, automatically

The 10.2 megapixel sensor, powerful EXPEED processing system and brilliant NIKKOR lenses ensure excellent pictures wherever you are, whatever you or your subject is doing. The comprehensive exposure metering system, ISO 1600 sensitivity and built-in pop up flash make light work of dark places.

Guide the way

The new intelligent Guide mode demystifies the often complex world of digital SLR photography by helping DSLR first timers to get the most from their images by recommending the appropriate settings for their subject or scene. The visual demonstrations help you to pre-visualise the end result and teach you how to improve your photography skills by clearly identifying the settings used to achieve the image. Once you have mastered the basic skills you can take your photography to the next level by testing out the more creative options within the guide mode.

 

3-inch LCD screen

The 3-inch LCD screen means you can share your efforts with family and friends and makes retouching your pictures in-camera great fun. Beyond the Guide mode, the GUI menus are larger and simpler to use thanks to extensive use of visuals instead of text. The wide variety of exciting in-camera processing effects means you can get really creative with your pictures and share them with friends and family.

 

Anytime and anywhere

Whatever you do, wherever you go, the D3000 is a must have for any family event or day out. The camera’s comprehensive technologies and tough exterior are ready to handle whatever your free time can throw at it. The exclusive dust reduction system with Airflow control minimises the impact of dust on the image sensor and its compact size and weight – and tough housing – on both body and lens make the D3000 impossible to leave behind.

 

The D3000 will be available to buy from the 28th August.
