The Nikon D3000 has a 1.5x crop factor.
Knowing the crop factor is helpful for determining what angle of view will be captured when using a full frame lens. This is because APS-C sized sensors cover a smaller area than full frame sensors. That smaller area is the same as if it was "cropped" from a larger image.
To get the same images from the Nikon D3000 with a 50mm lens, a 75mm lens would have to be used on a camera with a full frame sensor. For more information there are the best Nikon D3000 lenses.
