For a great bargain on a digital SLR, check out the Nikon D5000 DSLR camera. The big camera store Abe's of Maine has it on sale for $697, but a $57 discount available at checkout drops the price to $640. That's a total of $110 off the original list price of $750.
The Nikon D5000 has a 2.7-inch tilt-and-swivel LCD screen to give the photographer a wide array of creativity in angles and shots. It supports AF-S mount lenses, and you can expect the battery to last for about 500 shots. The Nikon D5000 has some great features, but we rated its auto-mode images as below par, so you may want to think again on this model if this is your first DSLR.
This deal includes an 18-55mm VR lens, a Nikon gadget bag, and a how-to DVD about using your new DSLR.
