The screen itself has had an upgrade, it has increased from 2.5 inches (from the D60 model) to a jaw dropping 3 inch screen display. As with many other Digital SLRs, the resolution of the screen stays at 230,000 pixels.

The viewfinder however stays the same size which has 95 percent coverage, magnification of 0.8x. Taking one look through the viewfinder will reveal one of D3000’s significant improvements: 11-point AF system.

Unlike the previous models that came before it the D3000 does not have an in built AF motor which would allow the camera to drive old lenses. This means that lenses that don’t have in built focusing motors can only operate with manual focus. You will need AF-S lens that are offered through the Nikkor series which will allow you to utilize autofocus.

The main headline grabbing function offered by the D3000 is the Guide Mode feature. This allows newcomers to DSLR photography to select a desired shooting mode and get the outcome they want. Nikon’s Digital SLR range were very newbie-friendly to begin with but this innovative addition allows it to be even more accessible to newcomers.

Even though the Nikon D3000 Digital SLR camera is without the Live View feature, it is still an ideal camera for the newcomers into the DSLR arena or newbies who would prefer to have guidance in the beginning as well as potential to improve with time.

The D3000 DSLR is primarily aimed at consumers who want to go from high level point and shoot to Digital SLR photography. This D3000 with its features allow the newest arrivals of photography to get into the Digital SLR arena.

In terms of build and design the Nikon D3000 DSLR looks almost same as the other DSLRs that are offered by Nikon, and only different to the D5000 and D90, which both are more advance models. Nikon D3000 measures in at 5.0×3.8×2.6 inches whereas Nikon D90 measures at 5.2× inches. The D3000 weighs slightly less (1lb 1oz) which makes Nikon starter to pro level Digital SLR cameras almost the same in size, appearance and shape.
