Nikon D5000 DSLR arrives


nikon-d5000Nikon is at the top of its game with the latest DSLR from the company, the highly vaunted D5000 that looks set to blow the rest of the competition in its class away. Why do we say so? It comes with a robust feature set as well as simple operability that is backed by Nikon’s superlative technology, making it the perfect choice for folks who are about to enter the DSLR game for the first time as well as those who want to upgrade and purchase a digital SLR which matches their experience level in order to reach greater heights of photographic expression whenever they press the shutter button. Check out the impressive list of specifications and features right after the jump.

The D5000 first of all comes with a versatile Vari-angle LCD display which can be viewed from a standard position flush against the camera back, but depending on the situation you’re in, you can opt to have it swing out or rotated/tilted to suit you and your subject. This unequalled freedom of movement will be able to further increase the type of angles you can make in your shots. When not in use though, this monitor can be stowed away with the LCD panel facing the camera’s back to protect it from any accidental knocks. It measures 2.7″ across diagonally and comes with a 230k pixel resolution.

Other features include a 12.3 effective megapixel CMOS sensor, Nikon’s very own EXPEED image processing system, a wide range of compatibility with a comprehensive selection of NIKKOR lenses, smooth tonal gradation, outstanding color reproduction, and low noise courtesy of a wide ISO sensitivity range. In addition, the help of Scene Recognition System with Face Detection and Active D-Lighting will reproduce even more vibrant images. Would you pick this up as your next DSLR upgrade, or will you choose something else?

I have been waiting for an affordable DSLR with a vari Angle screen. While I would prefer that the screen folded out to the side for ease of use, I think I have found my next camera.

Good Day,

I represent the TCB Publishing Group. We are the publishers of Vita Nova, a monthly luxury lifestyle magazine distributed to 10,000 Medical professionals in South Africa. The 100-page magazine is published in a large A4-plus size, printed on environmentally friendly matt paper, and finished with foiling and spot UV varnish on the cover.

We would be very interested to receive more information on Nikon D5000 DSLR, which we hope to feature in the next edition of Vita Nova, in a section titled “Tech Talk”.

I would appreciate it greatly if you can forward me a press release and some high-resolution images on the above mentioned.

If you can add me to your mailing list for future product releases, or simply for products you which to promote, I will make sure that you get regular exposure in Vita Nova magazine, and depending on the product, perhaps also in some of the other titles in our portfolio.

The TCB Group currently publishes 14 titles, including 3 in-flight magazines and the official guest magazine for The Blue Train, South Africa’s iconic and luxurious train that runs between Pretoria and Cape Town.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Kind Regards
