Nikon has announced a new mid-range dSLR — the Nikon D5000 sits somewhere between the Nikon D90 and the D60 with an effective 12.3MP CMOS sensor.
12.9 MPDX-format CMOS sensor (12.3 million effective pixels)
2.7″³ LCD monitor (tilt and swivel)
720p video capture at @ 1280×720 (24 fps)
IS0 Range between 200-3200 range (100-6400 expanded)

It will retail for an estimated US $730 (~Php35k) including the AF-S 18-55mm VR kit lens. No detail on when this unit will be available in the Philippines though but expect to see them first in the streets of Hidalgo in Quiapo.
