Summary: Without a doubt, the Nikon D7000 is a very impressive camera that is packed with plenty of features to make every photo enthusiast happy. Its high-resolution 16.2 MP sensor delivers great performance at both low and high ISO levels, providing even better details in shadows and highlights when...
Summary: Generally, digital camera producers usually adhere to a well-defined upgrade direction and it is usually obvious which style is intended to be changed by a new one. With the statement of the D7000 Nikon has - to a stage - damaged with this style.
Summary: 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 explores exactly what it has to offer.
Summary: Within the space of about a month’s time, Nikon has introduced latest-generation entry and prosumer DSLR models with their DX (APS-C) sensor. The D3100 reached market in mid-September 2010 and was followed by the D7000 in October.
Pros: Excellent image quality, Excellent at high ISO, Fast, accurate AF
Cons: Some highlight clipping, Awkward mode/release dial, 1080 HD somewhat choppy
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.
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.
Conclusion: Nikon have delivered an outstanding camera with its D7000. With better build quality ever to been seen at this end of the market, some of the best image quality in al l lighting conditions delivered from a cropped sensor, plus an auto focusing system that is fast, efficient and quiet, there is very...
Summary: Price is just as critical as any other element and the D7000’s initial RRP is towards the top-end. To explain: Canon’s 7D plus 18-135mm lens available for around £100 more and Canon’s highly competitive 60D is some hundreds of pounds cheaper at the time of writing.
Pros: Fantastic AF system, excellent picture quality, great battery life
Cons: A little expensive, screen could be higher resolution, kit lens doesn’t show camera’s full potential
Designed for photography enthusiasts this digital SLR camera offers excellent image quality under almost all conditions.
