Well, I just bought a gently used D5000 for under $500, so that became my deciding factor. :)

I had a d40 but wanted to upgrade but didn't want to break the bank and hoped. Adding video capability would be nice but I didn't care for the auto focus in the d3100. I rather do it myself. I thought the hd video I saw was pretty impressive. It wasn't the best in the world, but for the odd clip here and there, sure beat my crappy Sony Webbie Hd.

I'm looking at purchasing the D3100 or D5000 as well. I've never used either, but my son plays hockey and I need a camera that can capture some decent pictures. Can anyone tell me what camera would be best? I know hockey arenas are one of the hardest places to take pictures because they're so dark. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

So I am looking at the D5000 Vs The D3100 also......Flat out which one is better??? I used to be in to photography and then fell out of it for a few years and would like to get back in to it.....Nothing crazy, just for family and friends and I have the first gen Canon Rebel DSLR...... Which one is better. We are outdoors a lot, but have a little one now so I will be shooting inside as well.

Bracketing is a feature that takes a series of pictures at varying exposure levels. In the normal settings with a 3 shot bracket, the camera will shoot its metered exposure, 1/3 stop underexposed, and 1/3 stop over exposed. You can do 5, 7, or 9 shot brackets as well as brackets on a single side (only over or underexposed).
It can be useful for HDR imaging or if you're having trouble getting the correct exposure.

Sorry if this makes me sound like a noob, but what is "bracketing?"

The D3100 doesn't bracket?
What? When was this announced?

Doesn't seem to have an external mike input, how much of the autofocus noise will it pick up? Will it be necessary to do double system sound to get good quality sound?

With the d3100 it looks that you will be forced to buy it with the kit lens, at least in the beginning. I wouldn't want a 18-55mm lens as it is too short of a range for a walk-a-round lens. Perhaps the 18-105mm lens would be a better choice with this new camera or the 16-85mm lens if you are willing to spend more money.
