I don’t like my camera beeping at me. The D5000’s beeping sound is quite audible. In fact, it sets up a harmonic resonance with the bones in my skull and causes my eyeballs to vibrate. However, you may like it.
The D5000’s self-timer Beep function is used in a couple of ways. One is to let you know when the self-timer is about to fire. It counts down the seconds with a beep or two per second; then at the last moment, it doubles the beeping frantically to say “Hurry up!” The other is when you are using autofocus in some of its modes, like AF-S and AF-A.
