Disadvantages Expensive to lose
I have lost a lot of cameras in my time. Anyone who goes backpacking knows what I'm talking about. They get stolen from airports, hotels, hostels, buses, trains and pushbikes, the camera the one thing of value in a rucksack for the quick grab. When it is my fault and I have physically lost them it's usually been spectacular, one dropped in the Grand Canyon, another left on top of a hire - car in Texas in a severe thunderstorm and another I had to leave sharpish as it had naked photos of the bloke's wife pursuing me! From these mishaps I have learnt to take a cheap camera abroad and keep my best one at home. The number of those Kodak and Fuji cardboard throwaway cameras I have had to buy because of camera failures is endless.
The Nikon D3000 is a cheaters camera and aimed at people like me who want the camera to do most of the work, but making you look cool in the process. Rather than packing the camera with extraneous features it simplifies most stuff with fewer levers and gizmos, the guide mode helping you set up the various types of photos you can now achieve in digital. It replaced the D40 which replaced the F range, the F50 my previous digital camera. All you have to do is learn the on-screen symbols and instructions from the excellent 3.5 inch plasma screen stuck on the back of this and point and fire. You centre your image there for panoramic or close up standard shots and 'click'. Obviously you can quickly deleted any shot your not happy with, the big money save with digital over Kodak film.
