"I Just Bought The Nikon D5000(EXCHANGED IT FOR A CANON REBEL 500D) HELP"


US
          

i was very impressed the rebel canon but i was doing research on youtube and i just like the nikon videos better, maybe because it captures a little bit more frames.

I have a few problems with the Nikon Camera

if i buy a bigger SD Card (8 or 16gb) will i be able to record videos more longer than 5 minutes?

in the canon rebel while i was recording i can do an autofocus(focus on certain objects) but while im recording in the nikon d5000 i cant switch focus's...but as i watch on other youtube videos other people do it

example:

how am im able to do this feature?


while im recording in my room everything is fine on the lcd screen but when i upload it it has distorted lines. is there a way to get rid of this? i dont see it being a problem with other peoples videos
do i need to change my shutter speed?

Hi David, and welcome to Nikonians.

Not sure about the video on your D5000 but enjoy the camera anyway, it is a brilliant camera..

hi there. i too have a D5000. its a fantastic camera.
i got myself D5000 from snapshots to great shots. this has a chapter all about video. main thing wth it is you have to use manual focus when using video mode. and no matter what you do 5 minutes is the longest you can get.nikonians do a superb book too. not really done a lot of video but as a dslr it is a great camera.
