"need urgent help!"


US
          

Folks, i just ordered referbished D3100 with 18-55VR for my daughter, it's not shipped yet
some one is offering me for the same price D5000 + 18-55VR
Which one to choose? i can still stop shipping of d3100 if i'll call early enough.

I'm sure she will be JPEG user.
1. i need to know about sensor ISO performence.
2. ergonomics
3. extra feaches that can be usefull.
5. what bothers me is that D5000 too old of generation.

Thanks in advance,
Vlad

Given she'll be a JPEG shooter at the beginning, you can't go wrong with either. That being said, the tilt-swivel gives the D5K a bit of an advantage with unique shots/perspectives that a fixed LCD can't easily recreate.

My Plan:

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.
Pick the right mid-tone this time.

What Armando says is correct, however, I have had the D3100 and my son had the D5000. I think that you are right about the D5000 being old technology, and I would opt for the the D3100 for the better IQ and the higher ISO capabilities. The D3100 is at least a stop better than the D5000.

Hi Vlad,

I would stick with the D3100 kit.
It has better High ISO performance than the D5000.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Thank you all.

Eventually I was able to get D5100 + 18-55VR for $499.


I think my daughter will be extremely happy. I'm planning to introduce her to the forum as independent member sometime next week, when camera will arrive.

Thank you again,
Vlad

BTW, Gerold

Eventually I was able to find a copy of the magazine where my work was published in 1999. I keep it save now. LOL

Best regards,
Vlad
