Summary: There are lots of excellent cameras to choose from and simply throwing a dart at a board with Canon and Nikon DSLR's will get you a great camera. But for the "crop sensor" shooter looking for great performance this is arguably the best option. Technically its sensor is the highest rated (DxO Labs) but in practice I don't see dramatic or even noticeable differences in image quality between this or any other current DSLR camera. They all capture great images.
Summary: I got my Nikon D7000 about one year and a half ago - Amazon... This week taking photos at a museum the D7000 made a strange noise, it disengaged sending an error message. I turn off the camara and turn on, the message disappeared but when I tried to take another photo, the same situation... The internal mechanism of the camera was totally out... the camera died in my hands... I contacted Nikon... Let see what happen...
Excerpt: Nikon has released the this digital SLR with 16.2 MP CMOS senson for faster shutter speed and mde this camera ready to go wherever your photography or cinematography takes you.This is one of the best fit for taking pictures in games like my son's baseball game. I just took some shots las t week and it came as crystal clear like some professional took it. Even I got some complements from few of my friends their kids also were in the game.
Excerpt: . Nikon DSLR with model in the "hundreds" e.g. D700, D300s are usually the professional and semi-professional models. And models numbers in the "thousands" e.g. D3100 are usually the consumer grade DSLR. There comes D7000. Don't let Nikon's model naming fool you. D7000 is actually the successor of D300s. It is for sure better than D300s in every way. D7000 has a super low noise sensor. It also has 1080p video capability. Dual SD slots.
Excerpt: Just purchased this camera in a bundle package. The best camera I have ever had. It was well worth the investment. Takes excellent, high resolution pictures. I would recommend this item to anyone who truly treasures his pictures and wants them to last for a lifetime.
Excerpt: I love Nikon! Period! I have been using the Nikon D80 for the past 2+ years, until I upgraded to the Nikon D7000. I knew SOMETHING was up when the new D7000 was hard to find in stock! I have now owned my D7000 for a full month, and I am blown away at the difference. I am a portrait photographer, and I am often faced with situations where I need to shoot in low light. (Weddings, Baby's Birth, etc.). The ISO abilities are incredible on this camera!
Excerpt: The Nikon D7000 is a top of the line mid-range DSLR camera. With thirty-nine focal points and programing features to allow you complete control of your desired photographing climate this camera produces crisp and vivid photographs that are very pleasing to the eye. Along with a great focus this camera also has a five to seven click per second speed. Allowing you to capture every moment in the blink of an eye (literally).
Excerpt: I bought this dslr for dirt cheap new ended up selling it because I didnt need it. The pros of this camera is it has HD Video capability. The first time ever as lugging a huge dslr which all it could do was take photos. Im glad nikon stepped up their game and offered video recording. The only caveat with the video recording on this camera is that it records only in 720p which is good but not as good as 1080p.
