Nikon D5000 announcement clippings

The D5000 inherits the same brilliant image quality from Nikon's highly regarded DX-format digital SLR, the D90. Featuring a 12.3 effective megapixel CMOS sensor, Nikon's exclusive EXPEED image processing system, and compatibility with a comprehensive selection of NIKKOR lenses, the D5000 produces highly detailed images that exhibit smooth tonal gradation, outstanding color reproduction, and low noise across a wide ISO sensitivity range. EXPEED also contributes to streamlined handling of advanced imaging features such as Nikon's original Scene Recognition System with Face Detection and Active D-Lighting.
The D5000 features a versatile Vari-angle LCD monitor that can be viewed in normal position flush against the camera back, or swung out and rotated and/or tilted. This unequaled freedom of movement adds a unique level of creativity to Live View shooting, allowing easy viewing from virtually any perspective. When not in use, the monitor can be stowed with the LCD panel facing the camera back, essentially becoming its own rugged monitor cover. Measuring 2.7 inches with 230,000-dot resolution, the monitor provides 100% scene coverage in Live View and assures accurate image review.
