    It's at the very top of the "Newbies Corner", marked with a big red word called "Sticky".

    Cnet is a joke. They are the least knowledgeable people I have ever met, and who have ever reviewed anything. In most cases, they get 5 minutes of testing time and read the brochures. Real photography review sites will give you more accurate reviews.

    anyway, you should read from more sources and not from only 1 source and most importantly . . . go and try it yourself . . . you may wish to go to Nikon Service Centre (NSC) to try it out . . .

    What i like most when you go to NSC is . . . they don't sell to you but you can try all you like . . .
    Shot more cos digital is FREE !!!

    I use these websites whenever I want to find out more info about existing or new cameras.

    http://www.imaging-resource.com/
    http://www.dpreview.com/
    http://snapsort.com/compare/Nikon_D3000-vs-Nikon_D5000
    http://www.steves-digicams.com/camera-reviews/
    http://www.dslrphoto.com/dslr/networ...mode=3&ac=news
    http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/cameraList.php

    Always check more than 1 website for accurate comparison and comments on the cameras.
    And also take all camera analysis and comments with a pinch of salt as the commentators are human and not perfect.

    For you budget a Pentax Kx or the newer Kr will be suitable with little held back in features.

    Pentax was the 1st Japanese SLR manufacturer with many firsts in the industry.
    http://www.photoxels.com/history_pentax.html

    Pentax Kr (Kx is cheaper)
    The price is (based on SLR Revolution facebook page)
    1) Pentax kr 18-55 kit (Pink, White, Black) = $910
    2) Pentax kr 18-55, 50-200 Dual kit (Black) = $1060
    3) Pentax kr 18-55, 55-300 Dual kit (Black) = $1188

    Features include :
    1. On camera Shake Reduction
    2. Very Good ISO 100-25600 performance
    3. Exposure bracketing
    4. 6 fps
    5. 1/6000 max shutter speed
    6. Backward compatibility to all K-mount lenses
    7. Small sized
    8. Fun filters (if you want them)
    9. Bracketing -Check (in camera HDR w/ self align even)
    10. AF motor -Check
    11. Compatible with all K-mount lenses since ~30+yrs till now


    Local review for Kr here : http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=778924


    A small camera. With a choice of colors too.



    and if you ever venture into small lenses (THIS IS the company who makes quite a few of them)

    Seems like all the "what camera should I get?" threads tend to 'deviate' down the same path

    It's getting repetitive. Like a DVD player stuck on auto-replay...
