All similar model numbers and so many released in a small time, its easy to mix a spec up
I love the passion of this community.. like I said there is time. I'm going to be a little snap deprived for a bit. But I want to make the right decision.Thanks
I myself went with a D7000 but that's because I recently got mine for a really good bargain. A friend of mine was selling it and offered me a price I couldn't pass. Needless to say, with all the firmware updates installed, I'm very pleased with this camera
Tammy, sorry about your camera. I think if you go with the D7000 (assuming you can find one for a really good price) you will find some good things about it

I've helped friends with the d5x00 series cameras. Though the swivel screen is nice the added features of the d7x00 series is great if you change settings a lot and need that faster control.
Several years ago I nearly bought a new d5100 but opted for the d7000 due to better weather sealing, and all the other features. I'm glad I did as it was able to do sports fantastically compared to issues when I've tried the d5x00 series. I now have a d600 and that is close to the specs of a d7000 but with a 24mp FullFrame sensor. I love it even more.
For the money a refurb'd / used d7000 is a great deal. I sold mine with the kit 18-105 lens, and the OEM grip for $550ish several months ago. So you can get great deals out there. I found the investment into a book of how to Master the D7000 was the best investment though, as it taught me everything about the camera and how to use it (especially how to understand the user manual).
Thanks.. Im a little shell shocked.. but I guess this happens usually more than once.. Just it was my first Nikon.
I can't weigh in on the Nikon model choice as I really don't know their line any more - however I have to say that the small image in the first post, with the blown out background area, almost looks like you've got white smoke pouring out of your camera! A clear sign of something being wrong indeed
Can I trade you the disposable film camera I've got here for your D610 then?
I do not know about others, but to me the major overriding difference between 5xxx and 7xxx is the size and weight. I prefer a smaller camera, it is better for the way I shoot. Some prefer more substantial bodies. I think it is always worth trying both cameras in the shop and decide which one feels more comfortable. In most other respects all cameras are indeed if not the same but pretty similar to me.
Buy an F5 and a 500ML bottle of Rodinal.
actually A d5100 the metal tape is what that is. And I took that photo with my phone ...still using my camera. But only in a very controlled setting.
A bit too retro for me... ; )
I'm in bad shape today. . Now I took a header yesterday..joy oh joy I get to visit a plastic surgeon Monday. I wouldn't bother but I'm having double vision. The irony is not lost on me. Yes my picture is dark. On purpose. .don't want to scare children right now.
I read that and though, Oh my, it's Gary being Gary again...But then I noticed it said "F5" and not "M3", and I knew instantly it was not Gary, but some other equally deranged filmie...wink, wink!
Sorry to hear about your incidents, multiple, Tammy. Hope you're all better soon.
