great still camera, but not fully usable as a video camera

Phillip M. Feldman, Amazon
26 May 2012
  • Summary: - As a still camera, this is a wonderful piece of equipment, and I have no complaints. - As a video camera, the D7000 is a continuing source of frustration to me. Key issues are the following: (1) The 20-minute recording limit is a major limitation. This should be increased to the capacity of the card, or at least to 60 minutes. (2) The camera has several microphone sensitivity modes. One of these sets the level automatically, which would be very convenient if it worked.

Excellent photo, frustrating video, bad service

Robert Ward "Bob", Amazon
23 January 2012
  • Summary: Pros: Performance in low light is superb. Build quality is as good as professional level DSLRs. Custom mode dial is very useful. Small changes in layout from D90 are great. Infrared thingy on the back makes using the remote easier. Cons: Video auto-focusing is a marketing gimmick and just does not work in real world situations. In addition, the mic picks up the AF sounds and it is very loud. You would have to use a mic off-camera.

Great Camera - Questionable quality control from Nikon

Anupam Trivedi "Aviator", Amazon
10 November 2011
  • Summary: Firstly, I have to say that I am very impressed with Amazon's customer service. I have been buying from Amazon for several years, but never had to call customer service or return anything until my D7000 purchase. I am very impressed with the ease and transparency of the return process. This is what all online retailers should strive to achieve. Background - I've used a D90 with a Nikon 18-200 lens extensively, and found the results to be excellent.

Another one with focus problems

Mikey likes it, Amazon
11 July 2011
  • Summary: I had a D5100 and exchanged it for the D7000, which was back focusing, making many images (especially those at close range) soft. If the D7000 focused precisely out of the box, as it's supposed to, I would have kept it, since I liked all of the other features it has. All of my photos from the D5100 were sharp using the same lenses, so the lenses weren't the problem.

Camera Freezes

J, J&R
6 December 2010
  • Summary: I like Nikon cameras. I have the Nikon N80, D90 (later stolen), and the D7000. D7000 is the most expensive but with the most problems. Focus tracking in video mode works 70% of the time. Sometimes, there is no focus action at all until I pan the camera away from the subject. In camera mode, sometimes pressing the shutter release does nothing even when the subject is in focus.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet

"Fantastic still camera at price hot pixels are an issue"

Gwilym, CNET
6 December 2010
  • Pros: Great low light performance for the price! (not tested but reviews seem pretty conclusive on this issue), overall photographic performance is excellent from my testing in store.
  • Cons: I work at large a camera retailer and we have had several of these returned because of the hot pixel problems (only in video mode, however).

"Excellent camera, with significant drawbacks"

habubauza, CNET
1 December 2010
  • Pros: Great high ISO performance, excellent build quality, great burst rate, excellent battery life, super bright LCD, extremely customizable, shoots 1080p HD video, very good kit lens, super quiet shutter, dual SD card slots, 3D tracking.
  • Cons: Many stuck pixels when viewing video shot against dark backgrounds and/or high ISO settings. Video record autofocus doesn't work well and is very audible when using internal microphone. You have to use manual focus to get good results.
