    With its 16.2MP CMOS image sensor and Nikon’s new EXPEED 2 image processing system, the D7000 DSLR delivers superior image quality with low noise. The EXPEED 2 image processing engine combined with a 14-bit analog/digital conversion brings a new level of even tonal gradations while managing color, contrast, exposure, and noise resulting in brilliant image quality. EXPEED 2 also manages the D7000’s speedy 5-millisecond shutter response, blazing AF speed and rapid six frames-per-second (fps) burst speed for up to 100 images

    Full 1080p High Definition Video Capture with the D-Movie Function
    Building upon the popular D90 DSLR, the Nikon D7000 captures breathtaking full 1080p HD movies with full-time autofocus and manual exposure control using the D-Movie function. To keep critical HD focus, users can choose to engage a variety of AF functions, including face priority to track up to 35 human faces, subject-tracking and normal or wide-area autofocus

    Advanced movie features also allow exposure adjustment on the fly while recording. The D7000 DSLR offers variable frame rates and resolutions, and can record 1080p at a cinema-like 24fps, or a web-friendly 720p at either 24 or 30fps for up to 20 minutes per clip. Once recorded, users are able to edit and trim video clips in the camera to save time in post production. Whether utilizing a wireless or hot shoe mounted microphone, sound can be recorded via the stereo microphone input for professional audio results

    To further simplify movie shooting, Live View is activated by a single dedicated switch, and HD video recording is achieved by pressing a single button. The D7000 DSLR also incorporates a built-in HDMI output CEC compliant (Consumer Electronic Control) that allows users to connect it to a HDTV and playback with most HDTV remote controls

    By adding versatile NIKKOR lenses to the equation, photographers can create a variety of photo perspectives with video such as isolating subjects with a shallow depth of field, and recording in low light conditions. Combining the D7000 DSLR with NIKKOR lenses also delivers the sharpness essential for HD video, and Nikon’s innovative Vibration Reduction (VR) II technology helps to eliminate the effects of camera shake

    Nikon D7000 Review by DPReview.com

    In most respects, the Nikon D7000 is an excellent enthusiast’s DSLR. The camera produces great image quality in most shooting situations, and it shines in low light, providing (just about) useable images right up to its ISO ceiling of 25,600 (equivalent). It feels swift and positive in general use, even in live view mode, thanks to greatly improved contrast-detection AF – not a traditional strength of Nikon’s DSLRs. The D7000’s buffer is decent, especially considering the large size of its files, but not in the same league as the D300S. However, although potentially irritating to a D300S user considering a second body, this shouldn’t stand as a serious criticism of a camera aimed essentially at the upper end of the enthusiasts’ market.

    Canon 60D vs Nikon D7000: Best Midrange SLRs? by lightandmatter.org

    The D7000 provides the metal body, faster shooting bursts, dual card slots, continuous AF for video and a very impressive looking AF system for still shooting, and very similar features otherwise. My only major reservation would be the lower resolution sensor, since I expect that within 2 years, the higher end SLRs will be using 40 megapixel sensors; it’s a shame to be starting off on the low end of the spectrum in that regard.

    Nikon D7000 Review and Impressions by Robert Bromfield

    Pros

    • The D7000 does deliver in a being a better auto focus performer than the D90.
    • The D7000 has a much needed contrast boost in the images.
    • The high ISO performance is better than the D90 but less than the D700, a good compromise.
    • Increased dynamic range versus other Nikon DX cameras.
    • Definitely better auto exposure metering compared to the D90.

    Cons

    • The sharpness of images are definitely an issue.
    • Mushy shutter release button.
    • Peripheral auto focus points that are not the most sensitive in low light situations.

    Nikon D7000 preview by DPReview.com

    Although ergonomically, the D7000 is a very close match for the D90, its overall ‘feel’ is considerably more serious, thanks to a magnesium alloy body shell and thicker rubber coating on the hand grip and rear of the camera. In terms of its specification, the D7000 actually outguns the D300S in many respects, and at 16.2Mp it offers the second highest resolution of any Nikon DSLR, behind only the 24Mp D3X. All of these pixels are packed onto a newly developed CMOS sensor, which is almost certainly the same or very similar to that in the Sony Alpha SLT-A55.
