D5000 uses an automatic shutter speed to shoot videos

You would get even more speed with firmware 1.2


I just tried it.

About 50% faster in tele-end focusing.

And 90% less likely to lose focus.

I mean the resolution of the LCD is too low.

In / Out focus objects do not make much difference on the LCD.


For still picture MF, I am perfectly OK using the viewfinder.

Anybody manage to perform MF in D5000 Movie LV mode on the 230K-pixel-only LCD ???

I find it impossible.


For all my lenses, including the largest aperture 70-200mm f/2.8

you simply cannot tell if the subject is in focus or not

I have no idea about modifying the sharpness without your consent.

But the resolution of any upload images is limited somehow to VGA (640x480).

Neither my D7000 nor P7000 could view the so-called "standard" JPEG of each other.

The biggest problem of adding an audio track in post-editing is synchronization.

The audio recorder's clock may not be the same speed as the D3100.

Especially for lip-sync'ing speeches.
