($680)

Built for true photobugs and serious amateurs, the D5000 is a fantastic mid-range digital SLR. Photo quality is, of course, tremendous, which you’d expect with a 12.3 MP device. The flip and swivel LCD screen is a nice touch, too. The improved autofocus system helps guide beginners who are still learning the ins and outs of SLR cameras. Video quality is acceptable, if a bit disappointing; it only shoots at 720p, while several much cheaper pocket cameras can shoot 1080p.
