The Nikon D5000 has a 12.3-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and an EXPEED image processor. It has 19 scene modes to try out if you're not accustomed to changing manual settings. You can select a preset mode depending on what you're shooting, be it a night portrait, food, a landscape shot or a sunset. There is a D-Lighting setting, too, which helps bring out dark areas in backlit photos or photos that are shot halfway in the shade and in sunlight. It analyses the entire scene and adjusts the luminance of the darkened areas to make them stand out. It's like a form of built-in HDR (high dynamic range) photography.
