Nikon D7000

Yesterday I was working myself to come up with reasons I do not need Nikons new 55-300mm VR lens. Today I got myself a much bigger task at hand because Nikon has introduced their new D7000 camera which has everything I miss about my current D5000.

I can’t really cover everything about this camera in this post, but I just wanted to point you in the direction of this baby if you’re in the market for a new DSLR. Luckily, for me, the price tag makes me say “no thanks, for now!”. It’s listed as $1200 at Amazon USA and available for pre-order today.

  • 16.2 megapixel, CMOS sensor, DX format
  • 1080p full HD video (24fps)
  • ISO up to 6400 (25,600 in extended)
  • CLS (Creative Lighting System)
  • Autofocus while video recording in liveview
  • External microphone connector
  • Magnesium alloy construction with some weather resistance

Also you should watch the two videos below by Charse Jarvis who got the D7000 some time ago. The first one is a behind the scenes video and the last one is the actual short film he shot with D7000.

The camera looks great and the price is not to bad. Right know I have a cannon camera is Ok but I’ll trade my camera for this one if I could

Hmm, this babe sure looks sexy.
But i still have my Canon and anyway the price is too high for me right now.
Maybe someday…

I have a Nikon D300s which I purchased to have the ability to shoot good video with. The autofocus is useless in live mode and I wondered if you had tried using the D7000 in live mode and could let me know how the autofocus performs

I love this camera. This was the third Nikon camera I own. There are so many features that I can play around with.
