With a zoom range of 18-200 mm you'll be prepared for most shooting situations. Whether it's a tight space you find yourself in or there's a somewhat distant subject that you want to capture, the 18-200 mm lens provides you with the flexibility to do so. Other highlights of this 18-200 mm lens include the AF-S Silent Wave Motor for fast, quiet, autofocus performance and the VR II Image Stabilizer for handheld shots at speeds up to three stops slower than would normally be possible.

The Nikon assures that the D7000, "concentrates primarily on image quality above all else", giving the DSLR photographer and filmmaker what the company calls "a new class of Nikon camera". So, when it came to video recording, Nikon didn't skimp out on capabilities. The D7000 boasts 1080p HD video capture, while providing a number of other recording options including manual exposure control. Capture video with the cinema quality 24 fps or record Internet-friendly video at 720p in 24 or 30 fps - up to 20 minutes per clip. To enhance your video utilize an optional wireless or hot shoe mounted microphone using the stereo mic input. The camera also features, full time autofocus and Live View for video capture.

The 16.2 MP DX-format CMOS sensor and Nikon's proprietary EXPEED 2 image processing engine help you to make beautiful, engaging, gorgeous and bewitching RAW, JPEG and RAW+JPEG images. It's true! You'll have enough pixel-power to make wall-sized murals of - well, anything really - if that's your sort of thing. But even if it's not on your agenda to make photo wallpaper, the D7000's imaging capabilities give you the tools you need to create detailed, bright and pro-quality images.

Helping the sensor and processor take those stunning photos are functions like Nikon's RGB 3D Matrix Metering System, the built-in i-TTL flash with Speedlight compatibility and a 39 point AF system. The latter just so happens to make the D7000 compatible with over 60 NIKKOR lenses. Other helpful functions include: 14-bit analog/digital conversion, a 100-6400 ISO setting, 6 frame-per-second burst speed for up to 100 images and numerous other features.

No matter - video or still - as mentioned above, the D7000 records to durable and easy-to-use SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. The camera has twin memory card slots - meaning there's no need to change media mid-shoot. Just move onto the second card without interruption. For those who choose to purchase this particular camera bundle you'll even get a 16 GB SD card right out of the box, so you're ready to begin shooting immediately.

The camera also gives you its Picture Control system. Choose from scene settings like vivid, monochrome and landscape. You can also utilize scene modes with names like child, close-up and night portrait. Other creative controls include in-camera RAW image processing and the ability to add in special effects like fisheye and a miniature effect.

Excellent camera!

By

from San Diego, CA, USA

I have used the D7000 for 10 months and it is incredible. The 39 AF points in 3D AF mode is incredible for tracking action. The 16 megapixel sensor is very sharp and captures every detail. The ISO range is good and I am able to use it confidently up to 4000 ISO. The video is average but for the quick little videos it works great! I love the D7000!

Absolutely Great!

By

from Strasburg, Colorado

I've owned Nikon products for most of my adult life. Started with a Nikkormat when I was a teenager. I've worked professionally and semi-professionally as a photographer. Nikon products have always been excellent in quality and value. I started with DSLR's with a D3000 DSLR then went to a D5000 DSLR with a battery grip. I just purchased the D7000 from Amazon, got it and the MB battery grip slapped on a Nikkor 18-70 mm zoom and shot my oldest daughter's track meet yesterday. The camera handled like a dream shooting with Aperture Priority. Photos were crisp, well saturated, and the continuous drive at 6fps worked flawlessly. Over 1,000 photos later, I imported them into Apple's Aperture software as well as Nikon's Capture. I cannot say enough good things about this camera. It responded much more quickly than the D5000, and the features on it make photography a whole lot of fun. I'm still on the learning curve, but will undoubtedly learn to love this camera more as time goes on. We're off to another track meet next week and I can't wait.

A Five Year Old Powerhouse

By

from North Dakota, USA

I've been shooting for almost a decade now, and I love the Nikon D7000. It's quick, has excellent image quality (with the right glass), and good durability. The fact it's still selling strongly after nearly five years is a testament to its quality. Add a much lower price tag, and you've found a deal that cannot be beat. Reviewers may complain the video quality isn't good enough or it doesn't have newest fads built in such as GPS, wireless capabilities, etc. Call me old school, but the point of a camera is to take photos. If you'd like better video quality, there are plenty of camcorders available. And yes, wireless, gps, and such is great, but then again you're paying a premium for it. What photography boils down too is having a solid, reliable camera that can grab the shot you want. This is wha you'll find in the Nikon D7000.

Full Featured, Compact, High Value, DSLR

By

from San Diego, California

The Nikon D7000 is an excellent, well built, compact, and high value DSLR. Its size, when coupled with Nikon DX lenses, makes for manageable transportation yet brilliant photographic results. Below is a photo of a Golden Eagle taken at a shutter speed of 1/400 of a second, an aperture of f/5.6, an ISO of 1000, Auto White Balance, and Center Weighted Metering.

Returned D7000 to buy newer model

By

from Bay Area, San Francisco  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought the D7000 to replace my D90. I didn't find a substantial enough difference and returned the D7000. Took same shots of same places. Disappointing results. I will upgrade instead to the newer model. I bought a D3200 at the same time as an ever present camera pocket camera and I liked the quality of the images better than the D7000 -- although the D3200 lacks some powerful features I value and need.

An exceptional package for creativity

By

from Ascoli Piceno, Italy

I've been a long time Nikon user through the "F" series and then digital starting with a D1. Nikon has done a masterful job of advancing the technology including relative ease of use. The addition of the "U1" and "U2" settings feature has been a Godsend in speeding use in the field. The reduction in size of the frame is impressive and very helpful in our being very much on the go. It is hard to see how this cane improved on but knowing Nikon they will find a way. But for the foreseeable future, I'm more than satisfied, I'm very enthused about this camera.

love my D7000

Upgraded from D200 and fell in love with its smaller, lighter size and ability to increase iso without noticeable noise which my old D200 struggles to do.

Solid Performance!

By

from Eastern Sierra, CA

Great camera at all levels. It has taken a beatin' and keeps on ticking. I've taken thousands of pics over 2 years and have been very happy with the results. Much better camera than my old D90. Post processing in LR4 and have been happy with output other than noise above ISO 800. I have recently purchased the D7100 with the improvements that will make it the new DX top dog. Nikon fixed one of my issues with the D7000: the mode dial on the top left would get accidentally moved too frequently and I'd starting shooting not realizing that the mode was switched. The D7100 now stops those slips. Still going to keep my D7000 because everything including the battery are interchangeable between D7000 and D7100 and it has proven itself over and over again as being fairly rugged and reliable. Even managed to come off a horse with me with no ill affects.
