I have a D3000 and a D5100. Both are capable of taking excellent photos. The limiting factor is usually the photographer not the camera.I have seen the "worse dslr" comments and wonder what the standard is. The D3000 has fewer features than other Nikons, but it was designed as the lowest level dslr. It filled that role well.I do not use Auto Mode. My normal shooting mode is Aperture Preferred. It provides automation, while allowing me to change settings.Laverne
