Nikon D7000


There's 1 friend of mine talking about Nikon D7000. At first, I thought it was just another bullshit coming into the photography world. But it is different when I view it. I present to you, Nikon D7000.

The latest digital SLR from Nikon at it stands (supposed to) between the professional Nikon D300S and the prosumer Nikon D90.

Imaging on this camera is full of raw power as it has 16.2 megapixel image sensor and latest EXPEED 2 image processing engine, it does the same stuff with Nikon D90 (continuous shooting frame rate, noise level,  Active D-lighting and high ISO) but with less power consumption. ISO from 100 to 6400 and it can reach maximum 25600. Isnt' that awesome? Not to forget the Active D-lighting technology that helps overcome exposure problems.

For those not very good at setting, the camera will do it for you. With Scene Recognition System, you will always (I hope) get the best setting. Getting the wrong focus? This camera comes with 39 high-density focus point and you can adjust it normally or let the camera does the job for you. Not just that, with 6 frame per second continuous shooting, you can take up to 100 shot non-stop. OMG!

Scared you camera ever broke? This one is not. Made from 1 piece of magnesium alloy, weather and dust won't be a problem at all. Memory full? Since when? With two slot for SD memory and support of SDXC, you will never be at loss. The shutter unit can last until 150,000 and I guess by that time, new camera will capture your mind. Quiet shutter allow pictures to be taken with less sound from the camera. You don't want to scare the birds aren't you? Battery will not be a problem as the newly developed battery can last until 1050 shots. Liveview available will help you in situations when your eye can't fit the optical viewfinder.

Full HD (1920x1080) at 24p is gorgeous. It lets you apply all the manual setting on the camera to capture your video. While other people puts flash on their camera, why don't you put an external microphone? The different one always stands out. Movie editing on the camera is lame with limited function. Better do it on your computer. HDMI connectivity is one of the feature the camera has to offer.

Right now, the current price for this camera is around £1200 but maybe it will get lower in a few months time. Who knows? I'm just saying.

Thanks for reading about this post. Thanks to Azar for introducing this camera to me. You can check out his blog here. See you next time.
