Nikon recently released what we thought was going to be the D500. However, we were surprised when Nikon unveiled the D5000. Other than that, everything was pretty much what we thought it was going to be. HD video capabilities, 12 mega-pixel sensor, and an over all good camera! One thing that we were not expecting was the flip-out LCD. I’m not positive if I like this addition or not because sometimes the flip-out LCD looks improfessional but I think it’s kind of cool how it flips out from the bottom. Overall I think this was agreat release by Nikon!
