No. Without a memory card the camera stores the last picture taken only so you can view it to verify proper operation. It overwrites the previous picture, and it disappears when you turn the camera off.

You NEED a memory card if you want to save the pictures. Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the camera works.

My D3000 focuses, but only black images show up on the memory card. It's as if the images are not being transferred to the memory card


Dropping a D3000 is one to make you you say something bad

Outside of trying different lenses and memory cards, there\'s probably little anyone can tell you that you\'re going to like to hear. If it\'s a problem inside the camera, it should go back to Nikon for repairs. If you obtain an RMA from Nikon and send it in, they will evaluate it and give you a repair price. At that point you can decide whether or not to go through with repairs or cut your losses and buy a replacement.

Good luck!

Which book would be best for a beginner w/ the D3000 to learn the camera


There are a lot of good books. What's best for you would depend on many factors, including how much experience you have or don't have with photography in general and with other Nikons or SLRs.

How to use video option on d3000


Unfortunately, the D3000 doesn't have any video capabilities. It comes with a video cable to connect to a TV, but that's for displaying stills.

Sorry that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

ALL Nikon AFS branded lenses are compatible with the D3000. The AF lenses are usable in manual mode. Sigma, Tokina and Tamron lenses without the built-in motor are manual mode as well.
To be sure, check the manufacturer;s websites.
Hope this helps,

Nikon D3000 Monitor is black when taking a picture - any way to change it?


You can get the shooting information on it. If you're looking to use the D3000 as a point&shoot by viewing the image on the screen, then no, you have to use the viewfinder.
