The story here is that I want to get into photography and am looking to get myself an entry-level camera. The two I had in mind were the D3000 and D5000, I've been running around asking people about this camera and was wondering if you have any advise on which to go for and why?
I know the D5000 has HD recording and Live-view(which I've been told only works with video recording), and has a bit better photography at night due to higher ISO range, but is that really worth spending $400 more on it? The option of going for Nikon D90 is not open, its just too expensive for me.
So all in all I am just looking to get one of the two camera's that come with a starting twin lens kit for general photography(I don't know much about photography so I am just learning). Any pointers towards any other model is also appreciated.
Thanks in advance
