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.

One of the best values even in 2015


from Houston TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

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.

A Five Year Old Powerhouse


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


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.


Great Upgrade!


from Santa Monica, CA  -  Casual Photographer

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!

Nikon D7000 Digital SLR Camera


from Brockton, MA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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.




from Undisclosed

I like the camera because it is shape and fast and vary easy to learn and use.


Returned D7000 to buy newer model


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


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


from Undisclosed

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!


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.
