Could not be happier with this purchase
I am new to photography. I did a little research before this purchase. I stumbled upon the Ken Rockwell page and he gave rave reviews of this camera and buying a refurbished model. So, I took a gamble and I'm glad I did. I can't tell this camera was even refurbished! How I use this product: I take pics of everything: family, pets, friends.

I am new to photography. I did a little research before this purchase. I stumbled upon the Ken Rockwell page and he gave rave reviews of this camera and buying a refurbished model. So, I took a gamble and I'm glad I did. I can't tell this camera was even refurbished! How I use this product: I take pics of everything: family, pets, friends. I'm not a pro photographer, and never will be. So, I use it just for fun. What's great about it: It takes amazing pictures! Isn't that what we all want. Yes, it's a little confusing at times, but it comes with a huge manual, so, I use that as my guide to learn the camera. Having said that, I'm terrible with electronics but I was taking pics in 10 minutes? ( I had AA batteries on hand and that helped, the lithium battery does not comes charged up, have those on hand, newbies). Price: c'mon! This is a great camera at a great price! The 'not so great': So far , two weeks later, I can't find any flaw. If I HAD to say something, I guess that the D7000 has a lot of bells and whistles, wait, is that a bad thing? I guess I'm saying it can get confusing when trying to do new things with it: Shutter speeds, Aperature settings, but, I'm new, and well, not the sharpest tool in the shed. Overall: BUY IT. It's a great camera.

Returned with no problem
The Nikon D7000 refurbished camera I received was heavily used with over 100,000 shutter count. I returned and received refund with no problem. I then purchased a new D7000.

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.
Use camera for Outdoor action, portrait and indoor events. The price compared to performance is perfect. A refurb makes it even more attainable.
I bought this camera as an interim solution till I can buy what I really want. I'm extremely impressed with the build quality, blistering-fast operation, and top-notch images. It has exceeded every one of my expectations. I'm particularly impressed with it's higher ISO performance. I didn't start seeing any objectionable noise till near 6400. The Active D-Lighting almost makes up for the lack of HDR mode. This is the most pro-featured APS-C camera Nikon has ever made (other than it's newer D7100). Perfect for photography students on a budget. Oh, and I can't praise Adorama enough for their superb service, shipping, etc. my used D7000 arrived with nary a hiccup, in perfect condition, expertly over-pack-to-perfection.
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.
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.
I had been wanting to upgrade from my old D80 and now that I have been using the camera for a couple of weeks I am very happy i did. The pictures and screen are far sharper than my old camera and the interface permits quicker, better control while shooting. So far this is a great camera!
Absolutely wonderful camera. 2 card slots allow for raw and jpeg. I am a street photographer so I love the U1 and U2 functions that allow for a change in total camera settings with a flick of the switch. It is also water proof which allows many more worriless days on the street. No issues what-so-ever, the king of the hill for dx format.
I like the camera because it is shape and fast and vary easy to learn and use.
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.
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.
