New Nikon D3000 entry-level DSLR

Nikon has now launched a brand new entry-level DSLR, a camera that will become the sidekick of the D5000. The camera is expected to come out in August with the standard DX VR kit lens for $600. You can now pre-order it at Amazon.


Main Features
+ 10mp APS-C DX sensor (megapixel restraint a plus!)
+ includes standard 18-55 DX VR lens
+ 3-inch fixed LCD display
+ 3fps
+ 11-point auto-focus
+ 3D Color Matrix Metering II
+ no movie mode


Podcast
Nikon's own Podcast #23 talks about the new cameras. The link is to the website, not the mp3 file which you can download to your PMP or PC and listen later. The D3000 discussion starts at the 9-minute and 45-second mark.
