    Isn't the D90 maybe $300 more? I'm looking for more of an entry-level DSLR. Although the D90 does look nice.

    Ron: No you don't. That Sony Full Frame is a piece of shit, made of horrible plastic, and will maybe last you a year.


    Tnx Greg. I really can't afford a new camera anyway but the review was pretty good.... cr****

    yes the price difference isn't much. down the line you will want more features. features that you could have gotten with the d90 had you NOT gone with the d5000. the subject has been beaten to death online google some info and see if its worth the extra 300$ for you.

    Oh boy.

    Now that I've researched it more, I do really want a D90. I do still like that the D5000 is lighter weight, has an articulated LCD screen (good for shorties who sometimes need to hold cameras overhead at shows), and can do interval timer shots. But it sounds like the D90 is a more solid camera so it can take a bit more of a beating for frequent travelers, and would give me more functions to grow into so that I won't want to replace it as quickly.

    Darn it. I'm really not any good at being fiscally responsible.

    Then do not get the D5000.

    You are much better off spending a bit more on the D90, or find a good refurbed D50 or D80 for much cheaper (maybe).

    Then spend a little on some nice glass - remember in the end, glass is the key and the D90 and above, will be better at handling a better lens for a number of reasons. As you upgrade your gear, you'll want the flexibility of those better cameras.

    Also you mentioned the weight of the D5000. The D5000 is a lighter weight because it is made cheaply, the over-all plastic feel of it is a deal breaker to me, but then again, I'm lugging around heavy metal body cameras. Also that screen is a repair waiting to happen.

    Oh, i' gonna create a thread for this just to get as much of our picture takers attention:

    Billboard Photo Contest

    Unfortunately i just found out about this and the deadline is Friday. The pictures need to have been clicked between May 1, 2008 and Sept. 19, 2009. Legal crud too.

    These are the ones i am trying to pick from.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Out of the 5, i like Refusal. It's a nice energetic moment from Morrissey and the added rebellion of "refusal" makes for a cool music moment.

    Some people have brought up good points about the theme of the contest being that "moment". Out of all the pictures i put up, the strongest for me was Amanda Palmer doin "Creep" at Coachella. i might just have to go with 3 entries (NIN series, Amanda aaaannnnnnndddd.......maybe MIA....still got to get solid on that).

    Wow... kind of a Zen Arcade look. What is the name of the effect used on this? Or is it kind of a process?
