You end shooting way more movies than with a dedicated video cam because whenever you bring the slr the option to shoot movies is there..no lugging a seperate video cam.
here is a movie we shot the other day with a d5000:

or on youtube (bes sure to click HD on)
my wife gets lots of camera equipment for xmas also!! but she uses it more than me to take baby/kid pics....I sure like to "borrow" the stuff for kiting though
Yeah my wife actually got me a really nice Sony HD Camcorder with 80 GB Flash for my wedding present, gotta love it. I have some video from Maui off it that looks great, I'm looking forward to using it more this spring/summer. I looked at the D5000 especially considering it has a live view LCD with tilt, but I think the Guide Mode on the D3000 will be helpful to both of us.
I can always upgrade the base down the road.
