Preview: Nikon D5000

Today, Nikon Europe announced Nikon D5000: the first Nikon DSLR with a swivel LCD screen. (It is also available on Amazon now).

It seems to inherit most of the features of the Nikon D90, EXCEPT the weight, pentaprism (D5K has a pentamirror it seems), the second command dial, ability to add a secondary battery pack, and the in-body focus drive for lenses that lack focus motors.

There seem to be some improvements too though:

– Swivel LCD
– Live view subject tracking
– 3 video modes
– 2 more options for in camera post-processing
– 19 automatic scene controls

We will see how it matches with other models and the Canon’s recently announced T1i. I will add a preview of this camera here soon, do keep watching this blog!
