Sensors and Sensibility: The Nikon D7000 is a video camera strong enough to keep Nikon a contender in the DSLR filmmaker market.

  • Conclusion: An excellent still camera. An HD camera strong enough to keep Nikon a contender in the market segment Canon owned for some time.
  • Pros: Great sensor; superb auto-focus, customization and ergonomics. Any flavor of HD (compressed to H.264, of course) that you could want.
  • Cons: Has all the same limitations as an HD capture device that all DSLRs have (because video functionality will always be a secondary consideration in designing cameras used primarily for still photography). Some moiré and noise issues.

Nikon D7000 Review

maximum pc
8 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Nikon built the D7000 using a partial magnesium shell (top and bottom) with dust and weather seals. It feels slightly less balanced in the hand than Canon's D60, but this is a minor inconvenience that most shooters won't notice. The D7000’s user interface is easier to navigate than the D60's, but it does fall down a bit in the mode dial. The detent is pretty light, and there’s no lock, so it’s easy to accidentally change modes without knowing it.
  • Pros: 39 focus points; impressive low-light performance; dual SD slots
  • Cons: Mode dial moves too easily; could be better balanced

Digital Photo Review: Nikon D7000 DSLR

Macworld
6 May 2011
  • Excerpt: (1 items) With the release of the D7000 , Nikon created a new category in its broad DSLR line. At $1200 (body only), the D7000 offers a mid-range alternative to the higher end D300s, and the slightly-long-in-the-tooth but more affordable D90 (released in 2008). A full complement of advanced and automatic features, new 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, new 3D color matrix metering, good low-light performance, full 1080p HD video, full-time autofocus in video and Live View, along...
  • Pros: Outstanding still image quality, Sealed against weather and dust, Above average low light/high ISO performance, Dual SD/SDHC/SDXC card slots, Autofocus in video and Live View modes, Very good video quality
  • Cons: New Nikon DLSR users may be frustrated by learning curve of more advanced features, Full-time autofocus in Video and Live View modes not ready for prime time, Bracket button positioned too close to flash pop-up button, Function button difficult to access

Bright Hub
6 February 2011
  • Excerpt: The D7000 offers nothing new or innovative in the way of functionality, but it takes some of the best features of the D3100, D90, and even the D300s, and combines them into a high quality, well-engineered, semi-pro DSLR. The following Nikon D7000 review...

  • Conclusion: The Nikon D7000 is an excellent digital SLR, and an important player in Nikon's digital camera lineup. It's my first choice for anyone serious about getting great shots of their family, a great choice for the enthusiast photographer, and a great starter camera for anyone wanting to get more serious about still or video photography.
  • Pros: Very good image quality, Better than average noise vs. detail handling at high ISOs, Very good dynamic range in JPEGs, excellent in RAW files, Lots of high-end features in a relatively compact body, Attention to detail results in a great handheld experience, Weather-sealed, magnesium alloy construction, Fast access to Live view and Movie mode, 6 fps burst mode doesn't slow down for 14-bit RAWs, Very fast shutter lag, Two custom user settings on mode dial, Full 1080p H...

Nikon D7000 test

  • Conclusion: The D7000 is a great camera for both the enthusiast and the semi-pro, with features that make it both a working tool and a camera with creative options too.Arriving at a similar time to the EOS 60D, it’s natural to compare the two. The Canon has the edge in terms of ease of use and maximum resolution, but other than that, it's the Nikon that delivers more innovation, better build quality and overall, has the slight advantage when it comes to performance.

Nikon D7000 Review

Digital Camera Review
20 December 2010
  • Summary: As the D90 and D300 introduction dates approached two years in the rearview mirror, rumors of impending successors began to fly. It appears the D90 question has been answered by the D7000; those of us awaiting the D400 will probably get our answer in September 2011, but given the impact of the D7000 and its niche in the Nikon DX sensor lineup, the stage could be set for a technology tour-de-force arriving in the form of a full-pro DX sensor D400.
  • Pros: Excellent image and color quality, Excellent high ISO noise performance for a cropped sensor, Fast and accurate AF system, Weather sealed, 150,000 cycle rated shutter
  • Cons: Awkward mode dial - release mode dial interface, 1080 HD video not smooth with moving subjects, A bit more prone to clip highlights than earlier Nikons

Nikon D7000

Camera Labs
1 December 2010
  • Summary: In theory this makes the D7000 one of the most powerful mid-range DSLRs on the market, and one which in some respects even treads on the toes of semi-pro models, including Nikon's own D300s. It is however important to note the D7000 is also one of the most expensive mid-range DSLRs around. Nikon's clearly applied its previous strategy for the D90 here, offering a step-up in features and performance for a slightly higher asking price.
  • Pros: Great quality across its sensitivity range., Viewfinder with 100% coverage and VGA screen., 6fps continuous shooting at all quality settings., Dual memory card slots., 1080p video with AF, manual control and mic input.
  • Cons: Continuous buffer limited in depth., Metering frequently over-exposed in bright conditions., Continuous movie AF indiscreet in use., Back-focusing error on our sample kit.
