Rob Galbraith: Nikon introduces D5000 digital SLR with vari-angle LCD, 720p video
The club of video-capable digital SLR cameras has a new member. Nikon has unveiled the D5000, an entry-level digital SLR that features a 12.21 million image pixel CMOS sensor, 4fps still photo shooting rate, 2.7in (diagonal) vari-angle rear LCD and 720p video capture in a lightweight body that's expected to sell for US$729.95 in the U.S. when it ships later this month. The D5000 offers pro photographers in the Nikon camp a way to try their hand at digital SLR video, at a price that's even lower than the D90.
