So far as of Aug. 2015 yr. This is my All time Favorite Nikon DSLR !

By Love2Photo from Wshington State, Pacific North West on 08/04/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have owned, several DSLR camera's, and just about all of them, have been NIKON's :o) The reason I stick with NIKON, is because, my experience, goes way way back, to 35mm, Nikon camera's, and I have stayed, with Nikon, because, once you get used to the way one camera works, there controls, stay pretty much, standard, for the most part, plus durable, and they just work, I have enjoyed all of the Nikkor Glass, len's too, once you build up a collection of Nikkor len's, its had to switch. The D7000, just works & is super tough !

Excellent camera!

By 123toes from San Diego, CA, USA on 05/10/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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 Spartan51 from Strasburg, Colorado on 03/29/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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 Xavier from North Dakota, USA on 01/16/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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 Scripps23 from San Diego, California on 12/07/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

An exceptional package for creativity

By ExPatinItaly from Ascoli Piceno, Italy on 05/31/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

Solid Performance!

By grclark from Eastern Sierra, CA on 05/16/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

Excellent camera.

By newshutterbug from Texas on 03/30/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've been wanting to go DSLR for some time and just didn't want to make the investment. Took the advise of a friend who has several Nikon's. I've tried the Nikon BDC riflescopes and loved the clarity and good glass. This is truly an amazing camera. A bit much for the beginner but, I decided what the heck, no sense in upgrading later and just went for it. It has all of the features you need to auto point and shoot through the manual operation of zoom, manual aperture, shutter control and much, much, much more. Easy to use, easy to learn. Excellent arrangement of menu controls that are very intuitive.

Still the best DX camera to date 2014

By WeCanDoBetter from Undisclosed on 03/18/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Despite new camera arrivals, I still consider the D7000 the best DX camera to date beating the newer D7100 in the category where it counts (quality RAW files). Great Autofocus, great image quality, a sweet spot for APS-C sized sensors at 16MP, and no annoying lock button on the mode dial. And a reasonable file size. If DX users really needed 24MP files, they would rather have a more professional build like the D300.

A Dream Come True!

By ShutTheBug from Duluth, MN, USA on 02/04/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I waited a loooong time to purchase my first DSLR after a lifetime of shooting film. Yeah...I was a bit of a anti-digital snob. But when I finally (nervously) pulled the trigger, this was the one. It took me a while to immerse myself into the full range of flexibility that digital photography offers, but now that I'm 2+ years into it, I couldn't possibly go back! I love the look, feel, size, and more than anything the incredible capability that my D7000 offers. I knew I had great images in me, now everyone else can see them too. Thanks Nikon for enabling my creativity in a most satisfying way!

d7000

By mojobebop from ny on 01/10/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

excellent camera. used earlier d7000 for a year extensively and for 6 years before that a d200. shooting film since 1970. one criticism, the iso/asa beyond 800 you see degradation. at 6400, or 3200 pretty bad. not like the test results read on ken rockwell. only problems the video switch, which i never use i had to tape off. constantly turns on while shooting stills. the selector on the other side of camera switches programs as well. could not be that much more expensive to add the front magnesium alloy not to do so is negligent. if you shoot every day you will drop this camera. focusing w/the 18-200 can be abysmal. not fast. sometimes cannot achieve focus at all. no, it's not user error. other than that great plastic camera. again very angry they don't add the magnesium front alloy. you drop it and it will break. this must be a marketing strategy. better than the d2oo, 300, but those cameras more durable.

A lot of camera for the money!

By Jake63 from Tarpon Springs, Florida on 01/08/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Will be updating after testing. However, from the get go...Camera is much easier to operate than its rival competitor, Canon and the large assortment of features over the lower price Nikons is outstanding in my book! It took me a while to find one of these brand new....and did I ever jump on buying it! Read most of the review and You tube videos on the camera and was sold before purchasing it. I have made comparison with another nikon zoom lens and the 18-140VR kit lens was far superior in sharpness and hue quality! Good going Nikon...You've done it again! P.S- For over 40 years I was an aerial photographer ending my career into forced retirement 5 years ago (Health issues). When I ended, the D200 believe it or not was the camera of choice! This camera is far superior to me than my D200!

One of the Greatest Cameras Ever Made

By TommyD from NYC on 01/08/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've been in the Nikon family since the film days, using a Nikon FG, Nikon N65, and F100, then moving onto digital years ago using a D100 and D80. When I got the D7000 almost two years ago I was moving towards shooting professionally, doing studio portraiture and then part-time photojournalist for a local newspaper. I didn't have the big bucks for the D3 or D700, so after reading all the specs on the D7000, I figured this was as good as it was gonna get in my budget. All I can say is that this camera has performed magnificently in every way I've used it. I'm sure I'm echoing many of the reviews on this board, but the D7000 is the most versatile, high performing camera I've ever used. -takes all Nikkor lenses -6fps, essential for shooting sports for my PJ job. I also like shooting birds and 6fps is great. -pretty fast AF -lighter than full frame bodies and when I'm shooting PJ for the paper or hours of studio shots, weight DOES make a difference. -colors and detail are so rich, B&W looks like film.....I make 8x10 and 11x14 prints in color and B&W the prints never fail to amazing me. The only somewhat con I would say is the DX format, but that's only because I do make a lot of prints for clients. When shooting DX and printing traditional sized prints, you've always got to remember to shoot with the print crop factor in mind.....not a big deal really. On the other hand, for my PJ gig, the DX format actually works in my favor because I get extra focal length on both my 24-70mm and 80-200mm. If I'm traveling somewhere, I can take off the battery grip, pop on the kit 18-105mm (great vacation lens), and really lighten the load so I'm not bogged down by the heavier body and lenses. Versatile, I tell you! Bravo to Nikon for the D7000!

Big Disappointment.

By Varajuan from Mesa, AZ on 12/18/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this camera to replace my D5100 and have not used it much, but so far I have been very disappointed in its focusing performance. Like others have mentioned, almost all the photos are soft and not very crisp and sharp. I photograph a lot of animals, particularly birds and most often use the single point focus. The D5100 has a single point red indicator which makes it easier to focus on the eye of the subject and get many crisp and sharp photos. The D7000 has a rectangle focus point and it takes in a lot more of the subject, hence a photo that is not in focus to catch the glint in the eye. The D7000 takes in a lot of area instead of a pinpoint for the camera to try an focus. Have used my D5100 on the same subjects and am getting better photos. Will try to use the D7000 in some other situations just to see if I get the same results. I cannot recommend this camera for my type of photography. Maybe it works great for landscapes and still photos, but detail photos, not at this time.

This Camera Makes Me Look Good

By D7000FAN from Los Angeles, CA, USA on 12/10/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought my D7000 camera when the model was first released and I have loved it from Day 1. The D7000 is easy to use, is fast and efficient and the results achieved with this camera draw lots of compliments from my family and friends and make me look way more talented than I really am. Since I purchased this camera, I have taken, literally, thousands of shots and the results continue to please me enormously. As I am a lover of the latest and the greatest products, I have frequently been tempted to upgrade to a full-frame Nikon camera. However, when I review the amazing images that I have captured over the last few years with this wonderful camera (and not being a skilled professional photographer), I have to ask myself, how much better can my enthusiast/amateur results be with a more sophisticated camera?

AF & exposure problems

By Corelli from NJ on 11/16/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

AF doesn't work correctly, pictures come out soft if not blurry. To make sure it's the case I made 2 pics of the same object at the same time with the same lens with my new D7000 and old D80 using "P" (program) setting on both. Old camera made excellent picture, while picture from D7000 was blurry and overexposed, colors seem washed out. I wanted to upgrade from my D80, but it looks like I'll keep using it for now. I'm returning D7000 to seller.

Fantastic camera!

By ClassicDigital from Undisclosed on 10/19/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I own two Nikon D7000's. One I bought used over a year ago and a new D7000 that I bought about six months ago. My used D7000 was like new when I bought it with only 2,300 clicks. It even came with all the original accessories, paper work and packaging. However if your going to buy a used camera I really do recommend that you thoroughly check it out. I took a chance buying used but the camera has been fine. I own two D7000's only because when I shoot at events and such I like the speed and the ability to simply grab another setup instead of switching lenses. This way I'm able to get the shot instead of missing it. The D7000 is a fine camera even by today's standards. Its 16mp sensor captures amazing detail and it's 39 point AF system is both quick and incredibly accurate. The U1 and U2 modes allow you to quickly change settings since you can save specific exposure settings. The buffer on this body is small but its quick to load RAW images to the SD card. If you don't have a heavy trigger finger and have good timing then the buffer really isn't an issue. I limit myself to 4 shot bursts, but the buffer can hold 8 RAW images. I've been able to capture fantastic images of hummingbirds in flight with ease. Once the AF system starts tracking, the subject just stays in focus. I use the 70-300mm VR with my D7000 for wildlife photography. The 39 point AF system combined with the 70-300 VR's super fast AF motor means you won't get stuck with a lens that's too slow to keep up with the action. I use AF-C 9 point mode for most wildlife subjects. For portrait work the D7000 combined with either the 50mm 1.8G or the 85mm 1.8G is a fantastic way to get tack sharp images every time. The detail and Bokeh on the 85mm 1.8G is really something you need to see to believe. The D7000's 16mp sensor combined with the 85mm 1.8G is really able to pickup on every little detail. With this lens you can crop as much as you want and the image will retain amazing clarity (I hate cropping but its nice to know you can if need be). As for macro work the D7000 again scores high marks. You can really pin point where you want to focus. I use the Nikon 85mm 3.5G ED VR macro lens for most of my macro work. The VR really comes in handy and the 85mm working distance helps allot with insects. I often use my D7000's with my SB-700 and SB-600 for off camera flash photography. I use the built in flash as commander which works well. I use Nikon's CLS system for food photography and for macro and portrait work. The i-TTL system does take allot of the guess work out of the equation, but if you want a certain look to your images then you have the freedom to command two groups from the camera. Since I have two flashes I can use one in group A and the other in group B, thus independently controlling both flashes outputs to suit my needs. Overall the D7000 is a body that I would highly recommend. Its a step up from those who are using any of Nikon's entry level bodies or older prosumer bodies. Thankfully Nikon hasn't changed much in the way the D7000 and all the newer bodies operate. So stepping up to a D7000 or higher is really a short learning curve. However if your not used to a complex AF system then you will have to get used to it as I did. The smaller AF points are ALLOT more accurate then any of the older 3 or 5 point systems. Its also different in operation to the way Nikon's 11 point system works. If you want to focus on someones eye then the AF point needs to be on the subjects pupil not the eyelash or anywhere near the eye. The system will focus on tinny things such as eye lashes and pimples. So you must be aware of this. The older systems had much larger points which resulted in larger focusing areas.

poor quality for an expensive device

By Detro from Michigan on 10/12/2013


Bottom Line:

All these reviews about amazing pictures worth nothing if your camera simply doesn't work. My camera's SHUTTER DIED ONLY AFTER 1200 FRAMES and 7 WEEKS OF USE!!! That is less than 1% of that Nikon claims in the camera manual (150.000 frames). Now let's see how the customer service response and how fast/expensive the repair will be.

Awesome DSLR by Nikon

By venkatx5 from Stamford, CT, USA on 07/09/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought Nikon D5000 few years back and it really makes me to stick with Nikon. To upgrade, I bought D7000 and realized how Awesome it is. Everything in the camera is easily accessible. I use it with Nikon 18-200mm VR II. It's an excellent Combo and produce Great Images every time. As everyone say It's Best for It's Low-light performance. Dual SDCard slot is Great when you shot throughout the day on trips. It's bit heavy and I used to it. I wish Nikon should consider Swivel LCD as Serious feature and should release Future DSLRs with Swivel LCD or Wireless LCD is Great.

Huge Disappointment - Focus Problems

By Omar from San Antonio, TX, USA on 05/13/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've been a life long Nikon user and purchased this camera in October after waiting yrs to upgrade. For the last 6 months I've been using this camera on all my trips and couldn't for the life of me figure out why pictures taken indoors under low light conditions were after soft/blurry. It wasn't until I searched for problems associated with the D7000 that I learned there is an apparent autofocus issue with the camera. I can't tell you how disappointmented I am with my camera and of all the bad pictures I now have to serve as memories of some very important trips I've taken these past few months. My small canon powershot take better/crisper pictures. I've lost all confidence in this camera and Nikon.

Two thumbs up all the way .If i was a wedding photographer this would be my choice for backing up a D800 or maybe back up the D7000 with the D800 ! LOL

I've been using Nikon for more than 30 years and have had several top-end film cameras and D1's. When i wanted an affordable upgrade without going all-in on a D4 this one seemed to meet most of my needs. There are a few things I wish it had, like a 10-pin connector, etc. but I realize those are "pro" features. The camera has always delivered tack sharp images when i do my part.

Fine Tuning a Must

By barcl from California, USA on 03/31/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have started with Nikon with a D5000. When D7000 came out I jumped on it, I wanted more from a camera. I loved the feel and the set up of the camera. Downfall, pictures rarely came out focused. My 50mm 1.4 was the worst on the camera. I would focus and the camera would focus on something else in to the left background. I kept thinking it was me having a learning curve. I struggled with the camera for a year and 1/2. I finally after many classes and a professional photographer getting a hold of my camera it was decided I had the internet rage of backfocusing. We had to fine tune all my lenses expect for my 3rd party macro (it was perfect). I do not think for the money I should have to do every lens. Nikon would not pick up the repair costs as I was out of warrantee. I am selling the camera and now have the Nikon D7100. You probably hear me a block away when I took a shot with my 50mm and it was spot on beautiful!. I am giving the D7000 two stars for when it worked it worked beautiful.

Great Camera except some quality control issue

By uttampegu from Udaipur, Rajasthan, India on 03/25/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have been using Nikon DSLR for many years now. I think Nikon quality control has gone down over period of time and this otherwise very good camera D7000 is no exception. Image quality is very good, very good ergonomics. The AF seems to work very accurate. The best thing about D7000 is, its battery life, two user settings button U1 and U2. I have shot 1500 images regularly with one full charging. With U1 and U2 recall buttons, I can quickly come back to shoot bird in flights as soon as I see them! The main problem is its sensor dust issue. Its sensor seems to attract dust all the time. I have to get it cleaned almost twice a month from Nikon Service Centre. Also, Nikon has changed mirror drive once, still I see many dust spots on its view finder! I hope Nikon will get rid of such issue in it updated version D7100.

A camera for the world and pros

By TheMasterofReality from Undisclosed on 03/22/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My camera has already been in a film as I was shot on video while shooting a tribal bikini shoot on some dunes. I shot for six hours for a magazine and clothing line and did maybe two thousand or more shots and the little monster didn't even need to change its battery. The buffer problem is easy to fix with the right card. It is a lowlight champ, and because its saturation, sharpness, is actually customizable, it is a brilliant design. I would only like a bigger viewer, like a 35mm film camera, but overall, it is simply a great camera and with it a talented shooter can take on mightier cameras. It was rated as a backup camera for pros but it really exceeds expectations. I want another one. In Manual settings it just rocks with its two main control spin dials and often I run four different speedlights off it. I use some powerful speedlights and the whole commander system is just great. In studio with the right glass it seizes beauty. I really don't need another camera and if I did it would be for a certain Nikon glass, the legendary 135mm 2.0, and I would go D3x or D4. The focus system is a gift from the camera gods! I would include a photo but that's advertising and guess what I like to do! I could use another one of it as a backup.

not a good camera

By Less than pleased from Undisclosed on 03/01/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is my second review of this camera, I've been shooting this camera since it came out, my opinion has changed. The D7000 has a couple problems. I recommend avoiding this model. If either the camera or the subject are in motion you wont get the shot. The autofocus is terrible. Also this camera gets oil on the sensor. I wish I could afford to replace this camera. It really limits what I can shoot and increases my photoshop time tremendously.

Autofocus Issue Makes This Camera Unusable

By jrudrowww from Undisclosed on 02/25/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am not sure if I received a defective model, but the critical focusing at wide apertures on this camera is unacceptably flawed in the unit that I purchased. The point that I choose to focus on is always slightly blurry with razor sharp detail falling just behind the focus point almost every time. Take, for example, a simple portrait from a 3/4 perspective. The eye that I have picked as the focus point is usually slightly blurry while the further eye/eyelashes/details are in razor sharp detail. This problem extends to use in street situations in which the point that I select to focus is always slightly blurry compared to the amount of detail just behind the person/object that I have tried to capture in exacting detail. My d3100 (which this camera was supposed to replace) suffers from none of these glaring autofocus inaccuracies. I am very disappointed and will be looking to return my d7000 body, possibly switching to a Canon that does not drop the ball on simple autofocus point assignments.

Fantastic DSLR!

By qdawg94 from Undisclosed on 02/21/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This camera has been one of the best cameras that I have ever owned. I used to have a D40, D80, and now this one. Never had a single problem with Nikon. The fact that you can have a DX body with professional features is outstanding. The double SD card slot, 6fps shooting, and 39-point focus system work so well. Thank you Nikon!

Sweet camera

By foodphotographer from Undisclosed on 02/20/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I decided to upgrade my DSLR recently from a very serviceable D3000 and I had a few criteria I was looking at. It had to be a Nikon, I wanted a large, bright viewfinder, I wanted a focus motor in the camera and I wanted good low-light capabilities as well as easier access to full manual control. My plan was to pick up a D90 body after the D5200 was introduced and the price went down, but that changed after I held a D7000. I was ruined. Watching the prices I realized that the D90 was only a hundred bucks less than the D7000 so it wasnt worth considering. Im not going to reiterate everything said in past reviews, so Ill simply reflect on a few features I like so far. The Viewfinder- Bright, large and full of information. I can see what settings Im changing without taking my eye from the viewfinder. Manual Settings- Very easy to access Low Light Capabilities- I normally set it at 160 (reminiscent of Kodak Portra) for normal shooting and have the automatic ISO set at a maximum of 6400 with a minimum shutter of 1/30th. I took a photo of my grandson at ISO 6400 and cropped the image after converting to black and white. Making it full screen on the laptop and zooming in on it to the equivalent of a 16x20. It still looked good with some noise that gave it the look of Tri-X-Pan. Indoor color shots of food (thats my primary use of the camera, food blogging) at 1600 ISO are magnificent. Two card slots- Nice feature. I set it up so I shoot JPEG on one card and RAW on the second. Depth of Field Preview- I missed this feature on cheap cameras. Focus- Many people claim this camera has a back focus issue. I cant say that I have it on mine; I cant say that I do. What I can say is that I find it to be the fastest focusing camera Ive ever had. I also find that it focuses on what I want, most of the time. No camera will ever be 100% accurate. Sharpness- Pictures are sharp and clear. I set the color to vivid for everything but portraits. Live Screen- Nice, but I like the viewfinder. It doesnt like to autofocus as well in live mode as the camera uses a different (more archaic) focus system. I havent used to video mode as yet, it wasnt important in buying the camera. Overall, Id recommend this camera to the photographer who wants superb photos and ease of control.

Glory Be

By Manthony from Undisclosed on 02/19/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Succinctly,this camera means business. If you are shopping for a mid range Dslr I would recommend the D7000 in a heart beat with no apologies to any nay sayers. There is something about Nikon and it's 7s the D70 opened a whole new world to so many ushering in affordable digital slrs for the masses, the D700 is a master piece which helped introduce the full frame sensor and no the D7000 which bridges the gap between Professional cameras and consumer models. This camera keeps up with me, produces amazing images and it is intoxicating to use this marvel.

Love the quality of the camera!

By passionatephotog from Undisclosed on 02/13/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This was a big jump for me- I went from a point and shoot to a DX- and I am amazed at the photos it produces. I shoot completely manual- and love every minute with my camera. It amazes me and it was the perfect fit for me. Perfect for those who really want a big step into photography and want something really good, but not too crazy expensive! My favorite features are live view, because when I have my camera at an odd angle, I can tell if its focused or not; and the two card slots. Love this camera and would recommend it in a heartbeat.

Only one flaw

By Ron from Undisclosed on 02/12/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am completely happy with everything about this camera with one exception. The buffer is too slow for wildlife, especially birds. I know this is a trade-off for the impressive file sizes but every now and then I miss the critical shot. I'm learning to be more discerning and wait which the D7000 allows with it's fast focusing and shutter response. All in all I'd buy it again. One of the deciding features for me is the ability to program in my old Nikkor's and use them with full metering. My 30 year old 105/f2.5 coupled with this camera makes for some incredibly sharp photos.

I like the camera, but I seem to have problems and have had to exchange it.

By Myfirst Nikon. from Undisclosed on 02/05/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the 2 SD slot and I love the 6 frame per sec. I bought the first one and used it a lot. After the first few months, it would say It didn't have a SD card in it after I had taken 400 pictures. It would not shut off either. I had to remove the battery and then it would "fix' it for a while. I exchanged it for another. It started to do the same thing while I was shooting pictures for a gala event. I also realized that even though it was saying it was taking the pictures, It was not showing up on my SD card. It also began leaving weird shadows on the subjects of my pictures, only when I turned the camera in one direction. I have since exchanged it and am going to try it a third time. I am getting ready to go on vacation so I will be using it a lot there and we will see if it does the same thing.

Good camera but has it's faults

By blockography from Galva,Illinois on 01/28/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really like the D7000 and it was a nice step up from my D3100. The low light capibilities are good for a DX camera. My biggest complaint is the back focus issue. I miss focus very often with this camera and after may tests and talking to others I've found it's the camera. I adjusted the AF fine tune and that did help. Overall this is a great camera and for the price it rocks! But the backfocus issue has now pushed me into a D600.

big step up from D80

By AZ Lighthouse from Mesa, AZ, USA on 01/06/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am a part time wedding photographer, doing about 20 weddings a year. This is my 3rd Nikon digital camea. This is an upgrading from a D80 I have been using for about 5 years One of the first things I noticed with this camera is how fast it is. Also most churches frown on using a flash during a ceramony. the 6400 speed alows me to get good pictures durring the ceramony. The D70 Said it could go to 1600 but above 1000 the picture was lousy the D80 was still quite good at 1600 and he D7000 looks almost as good at 6400 as it does at 400. Being able o use faster film speeds helps me keep from over heating my SB 900 flash. PS I would buy a Nikon flash or 2 with the camera if you don't already have at least one. One of my favorite things about Nikon is the creative lighting system. This is my 3rd Nikon with this system, it is great for filling shadows on sunny days or giving a 2nd light source for a dramatic shot. I was planing on upgrading to a D600 or D800 in a year or two but this camera is so good I may wait a little longer. The only down side is the manual is bigger than the camera, I spent a week reading the manual. Once you know how to use it it is easy to get to any feature you need quickly.

Dependable camera

By Charlie from Florida on 01/05/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've used this camera since late 2010, just after it was announced. I've shot 125,000 pictures on it and it keeps moving along. In the past 2 years I've shot political events, concerts, plays, bike races, car races, talent shows, local events, pictures for magazine articles and covers, portraits, long exposures, astrography and plenty of other subjects. After nearly daily use for 2 years, the rubber grip has started to loosen and a piece near the battery cover has fallen off, but considering the exposure to dust/water/heat it's seen I'm amazed it still works. I'm not going to post most of those examples because I don't have consent from the people in them, but my take away from all these events is that once you're comfortable with the camera it's easy to repeatedly nail shots. Here are my observations: Pros: -I've had usable images to ISO 6400, and I use 3200 on a regular basis -Weather sealing seems good enough for the rain I've been caught in -AFS and AFC is fast, covers the whole frame, and works marvelously in low light. -It has a screw moto to focus (loudly) with older AF lenses -Live View is useful to zoom in and verify still life focus -Auto White balance is dependable -Skin tones are natural, colors are usually true to life except in extremely poor lighting -I've never found myself wishing for a faster burst rate -Dual SD slots are great for capacity and backup -Battery life is astonishing, I've gotten 1600 shots out of one charge on several occasions -the controls are well placed and the camera is comfortable to hold and use -the max shutter speed of 1/8000s is great for outdoor portraits with large aperture lenses Cons: -the buffer is tiny, for RAWs continuous shooting slows after 10 images even with my 95mb/s card -the mode dial is loose, you have to check to make sure you're in the mode you intended -the viewfinder cup habitually falls off -after all this time the delete button just completely fell out. It's now being held in with tape. -I've had -.3 exposure compensation dialed in since day one, sometimes more. The metering doesn't always cooperate. -the finish on the whole camera is coming off.

I get the best of both worlds... well almost.. I use my nikon for photography as well as videography.. I love the product in comparison with the 7D which was my biggest fight as I'd already owned the D80 & D90. My biggest cry is the fact that I don't have 60fps in video... If you have no need for 60fps... this is the biggest bang for the buck!!!

Good camera with several major flaws. When is the D400(?) coming out?????????

By wayjeff.com from Colorado, USA on 11/29/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this camera because I'm still waiting for Nikon to replace the D300, which is taking forever. I'm starting to consider switching to Canon because of that delay. It's a good camera overall, much better than the D90. ISO performance is quite good, and color integrity seems to be quite good as well. I also like that it works with the ML-L3 remote. I don't understand why the ML-L3 remote does not work with EVERY NIkon camera. Doesn't make any sense at all. It's a very useful item. Major flaws include: No lock on the mode dial. It frequently gets bumped out of place when shooting veritcally, which is super-annoying. Can't believe it made it through product testing that way. They have finally corrected that problem with the D600. Cache is too small and slow when shooting at highest quality. Miss shots while waiting for the cache to catch up. And, the metal strap holder knubs jam into my hand when shooting vertically, which gets very uncomfortable after several hours. I finally forced myself to place my hand differently when holding it. Canon offers cheaper models with higher resolution and more features, like locking mode dials and flip-up display screens. I would also like to see Nikon add a settings display to the back screen, showing ISO, White Balance, exp. comp, etc. Canon offers this already. Only picked YES for recommending because they don't offer "Maybe"

Just upgraded from my beloved D90 (an amazing camera in its own right). The D7000 has everything I loved about the D90 + more. It's made for MANUAL shooting with very easy to use controls. Very solid feel (although I did add a battery grip for better personal comfort). Fast, accurate focusing. Great resolution. I also like that I can easily meter and manual focus older lenses. Can't wait to put the D7000 to good use. Another great Nikon product.

My First Best DSLR

I haven't owned any DSLR before until my favorite Olympus point and shoot (film camera) got broken. First I was looking at all the semi-pro, beginners, mid-range dslr or whatever you call it, and the D7000 was my #1 favorite. I said I'll try to use it in Auto mode first since I didn't know much how to operate a DSLR so I did. The pictures turned out great like a pro, how much more if i use all the wonderful settings with this camera. I'm very satisfied with my first DSLR.

Best Semi-Pro Camera Out There

By bspoon513 from Undisclosed on 11/01/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Having owned the D50 for many years, and working with the D80 at my job, I was ready to upgrade to something with some more muscle. I did the research, read reviews, and the D7000 was the clear choice. The upgraded sensor and low-light capabilities are just awesome. I've shot at ISO6400 indoors with a 1.8 50mm prime and been astounded at the clarity. I wouldn't make it a habit, but shooting in those near-impossible ISO ranges is no problem at all, especially if you aren't planning on blowing the shot up tremendously for framing. The controls are pretty easy to use, especially if you are already familiar with cameras in the D series. It does way more than I will probably ever learn to use it for. Lots of pros use this as a back-up (or primary in some cases), and you can't find a bad review from anyone reputable. If you're trying to decide on a consumer-grade DSLR and you're somewhat serious about photography, the 7000 is the clear option in my opinion.

Great Value for Money

By Roccco from Toronto, ON, Canada on 10/29/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After many years out of it, I decided to get back in and found the D 7000 the best value for the money. There are so many cameras to choose from, but when it comes down to performance and details, there was no question. I spent a lot of time and energy in researching. Great shoots even in poor lights with great details.

I have had Nikon products for a number of years. D40X, D90, and D7000. I have always been pleased with my Nikon cameras until I got this one.

Faulty out of the box

By Nikonconvert from Etobicoke, Toronto, ON, Canada on 10/19/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is my first Nikon DSLR. Heard alot about how good this model is, so i decided to make the leap into nikon and rebuild my gear(BIG BIG mistake). this camera is very good when it's working right, but my unit had a severe shutter problem out of the box. the camera mirror will lock up and an Err message will start flashing almost every time i use live view or continuous high speed shooting . sometimes taking the battery out and putting it in again will solve the problem, sometimes nothing will work and you just have to wait and keep trying and it will work again when it decides to do so.I've had this for 3 weeks and i've already been to service twice. Extremely disappointed in the camera and i've lost all trust in this model. Now i'm awaiting replacement of the camera by Nikon. To be honest, the only positive thing about the whole ordeal was the service center personnel. They are very professional, polite, and always tried to help as much as they can.

Amazing Piece of Technical perfection!

By fstoppie from Mahwah, NJ, USA on 09/13/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent low light performance, that is up to any professional Nikon cameras(and even better than other brands). The Dynamic range of this Camera is awesome. The viewfinder offers excellent view. For continuous shooting, the D7000 can shoot upto 6 fps. 39 focus points out of which 9 are cross-type focus points, so you can count on D7000's ability to track the subject even if its moving. The D7000 can accept more than 169 Nikkor lenses. Though Video wan not my prime reason to buy this equipment, D7000 is not behind in that faculty too. It can shoot full HD[1080p] @ 24fps(PAL) and 1080p @ 30fps(NTSC).

Big DSLR in a little DSLR body

By Tman from Suwanee GA on 08/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've used a D80 and a D90 for sometime, I thought that without buying one of the highend Nikons, I could still get good shots. Until D7000 no DSLR was better than my D90. I love my D90, this is a very, very good DSLR. Then I met D7000. I am in DSLR heaven. This camera is awsome. The clarity, speed, color....I could go on and on, and still I couldn't say enough about D7000. At first I read all the negative reviews on how it's not a D4 or D800, I was afraid to get one. I decided to check for myself. Well, no it's not a D4 or D800. if you need a D4 or D800, you need to buy one. D7000 never claimed to be either of these "big boys". What it does claim, is that it's a heavy weight among its comparble competition (I'd say better). With the array of available lenses, there's not much D7000 can't do. I will get a D800 or D4, when I can afford one, but that doesn't mean I am short changed with my D7000. With features like EXpeed II, large multi-point metering, D7000 has more than "just adequate" capabilities to complete my photographic work with ease and superior results. Using lenses in the F2 to F1.4 range is really what makes any good camera great!! Superior glass, controlling light, meshed with a great camera is key. Try the D7000 with Nikkors 85mm 1.8, you'll see what I see, D7000, darn good DSLR!!

By Tgaps from Phoenix, AZ, USA on 08/23/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

You've bought your first (or second inexpensive DSLR#. You need or want something better, more capable, a camera you can grow into. This is that camera. Until you feel the jump to full frame and professional DSLRs, this camera will fill your needs and not leave you wanting. I won't go into the technical aspects of this sophistaced, artistic tool, there are more than Nikon lists on their D7000 page, but it trumps every other Nikon in the DX series AND at one attractive price! I started with a used D50 #affordable# then outgrew it. I hemmed and hawed between the D5100 and D7000. The D5100 is a nice, affordable camera but now that I have my D7000... ooh, I wish I had bought it in the first place. ALL of my previous lenses work with the D7000. The manual, Non-CPU lens data is, is, a godsend! I'm not a Pro. I don't make a living #or any dollar for that matter# from my photography. I don't remember, and don't need to, all the info about F-stops, shutter speed, light metering, etc. I shoot b/c I love to AND I'm learning those skills particularly fast with this camera. All the bells and whistles an amatuer or low level pro would need are in this camera. If youlike to learn to control the aspects of your art, this camera will allow you to do so AND still provide those Auto settings for quick, casual shooting. I'd love to upload some shots I have taken but #poor internet connection) I am currently in Peru putting this camera to the test and I am Loving it!

I Love This Camera

By Pattie Pooh from Kansas City, MO on 08/19/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My first DSLR was a Nikon D60 and I later purchased a Nikon D40 camera. After 3 years, I was ready to advance to a bigger and better camera and I'm glad I did. Everything I've read about the Nikon 7000 is true. The weight and balance is just right for my rather small hands and all the features feels like a professional camera. This is the way to go...Thanks Nikon!!

Excellent Camera BUT bad skin tones.

By ProspectStudios from Undisclosed on 08/18/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The camera is fast, great in low light, BUT its hard to get correct skin tones. which is a MAJOR issue. The skin looks fake or plastic most of the time. My last camera was a CCD Nikon D80 and they were 95% right on, this one is hard to dial in the skin tones. I hope there is an update for skin tones. I would get a used Nikon D700 instead if I knew about this problem

This camera has it all, the feel and ease of use is remarkable. For the price, you just can't beat it. This camera has revived my interest in photography.

Nikon D7000

By Nikon Dennis from St. Petersburg, FL on 08/16/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just had it a week and shot a three day corporate event. After 350 shots,battery was still 3/4 charged at the end. Camera handles like a dream, fast autofocus, lightweight, etc. Worked well with my SB-800. Also dropped it from about a four foot height, not a scratch and works perfectly!!! Good build quality. Going to get another body and would highly reccommend this camera.

Amazing photos, great utility, faulty shutter...

By ChattanoogaNikonPro from Chattanooga, TN on 08/09/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've really enjoyed using this camera for events and on location portrait work outside the studio. The images and color depth are great, and the on board editing and review tools are very useful. My only complaint is currently being dealt with by Nikon Photo Service Center in Melville, NY. I was using the camera for a live event and the shutter had a critical failure, with parts actually breaking and coming loose within the camera body. When I removed the lens later to inspect it, the shutter was severely damaged during regular light use and completely inoperable. It appears that there is no damage to the CCD (fingers crossed), but I certainly hope I'm not asked to pay for repairs for this kind of critical failure, especially since I own several other Nikon DSLR cameras and have had no shutter issues with any of them after nearly a decade of continuous use.

D7000

By EQCM P from Pensacola, FL, USA on 08/07/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I would not recommend a D7000. I bought this camera to replace a D90 and have been displeased since I have purchased it. It does not give me consisdently good shots. Out of 100 pictures I will have only a handful that will be in focus most will be a tad out of focus. This happens not matter what type of auto focus setting I am using. I even sent this camera back to Nikon to fix a pixel problem and informed them at that time about the "soft" focus problem....still have it (the problem that is). I feel I have to take three time the pictures to get enough good pictures to use. This camera does have a lot of bells and whistles but they don't mean much when the end product is unusable. 2 pictures attached. I count pictures in focus if I can count the eyelashes (provided they are portraits)

DON'T BUY IT!!!!!!

By CRISTINA from Porto Alegre - Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil on 08/05/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I AM A BRAZILIAN CITIZEN AND, ON VACATION IN BRUGGE, BELGIUM, IN NOVEMBER 2010, BOUGHT A D7000 THAT HAD JUST BEEN RELEASED. THE NEXT DAY, BACK IN PARIS AND AFTER ABOUT 400 PICTURES, THE SHUTTER LOCKED AND AN ERROR MESSAGE APPEARED ON THE DISPLAY. AFTER THAT, PRESSING TWICE THE SHUTTER I COULD TAKE PICTURES BUT THE FILM MODE DID NOT WORK ANYMORE AND SOON I WAS NOT ABLE TO NEITHER TAKE PICTURES NOR FILM. I TRIED EVERYTHING SINCE CONTACTING THE SELLER FROM CONTACTING NIKON BUT THE PROBLEM WAS NOT SOLVED. NOW I HAVE AN EXPENSIVE USELESS CAMERA AT HOME!

The worst Nikon camera I ever owned

By scs_13 from Undisclosed on 08/04/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have owned 5 Nikon DSLRs so far and the D7000 was absolutely disappointing. The camera has a serious back focus problem that Nikon never addressed despite contacting the Nikon help desk. I also had 2 different bodies shipped to me, but both had the exact same problem. Before you buy this camera google ""Nikon D7000 back focus problem". At time of writing 112.000 entries. I since bought another camera and get great, sharp photos with it. Thank you Nikon.

Unreliable camera and Nikon won't effectively support

By disgruntled consumer from Undisclosed on 07/30/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This camera is afflicted by what I have googled and found to be "dead battery syndrome." The camera simply refuses to take a photo, as if the battery is dead (although it is not). More specifically, it appears to refuse to take a light meter reading/focus. I have called Nikon repeatedly about this issue. Each time they tell me all i need to do is reset the camera. That fix works temporarily but not permanently. The bottom line is that this camera is totally unreliable, this appears to be a known problem based on internet research, and nikon refuses to address it. i am stuck with thousands of dollars of effectively useless equipment.

This PRO camera rocks

By Goot from Fresno, CA, USA on 07/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As a Nikon shooter since the 1970's, and amassing a number of Nikkor glass (15 or so), seeking a pro camera that my students at the high school I teach at can use with all this glass, made this choice a no-brainer. This high speed, digital monster will utilize every FINE piece of glass from back then, until today. Nikon RULES.

Focus issues

By Jaime from Miami, FL, USA on 07/22/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I wish I had read all the reviews before buy it, tons of problems with focus. It seems every 3 shots I got one acceptable , when you shoot weddings this is a nightmare. I'm pretty familiar with Nikon systems, Selective focus doesn't work either. My old D80 10.2 mp still having sharper images than D7000. When I purchased this body I got also the speedlight SB 900. Another problem. This flash overheats at full power as soon as 20 shots and shut down itself. Two deceptions one visit to dealer. Just returned the D7000 body to the dealer.

Wonderful Camera

By VanillaDolphinz from Hollister, CA, USA on 07/21/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this camera! It is very easy to use. The features are very simple and straight forward. I used a D60 for 3 years and was very happy with it. Once I saw the D7000, I knew right then and there that I wanted this camera. I was not looking to upgrade because I was and still am very happy with the D60. I kept reading the reviews and seeing the pictures that this camera was producing and could not wait to get my hands on it. The second i was able to afford it, IT WAS MINE! This is the best camera. I highly recommend this camera even if you are a beginner. You will not be sorry!

Nikon D7000

By Long time Nikon user. from Florida transplant from L I on 07/17/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Returned two D7000. I am a Nikon user for 25years. Was very dissatisfied with this Nikon product the first one had a shutter problem unrepairable and the second just, shut down with errr, at that point i had my dealer refund my money for the second time, as of this writing im still waiting for my credit. I purchased it because it had a rating of 41/2 stars if it was not for all my Nikon lens i would look into Canon. I understand they had bad times and i hope this is not an example of thinks to come.

Easy to use for beginners, fun to use for the professional!

By BFPhotography from Newmarket, NH, USA on 07/08/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have owned my Nikon D7000 now for just over a year and I am still amazed by the quality of this product. I am glad I made this purchase after doing a total of 8 months of market research on DSLR's (4 months before the D7000 was available and 4 months after it was released). If you are looking for a good starter DSLR that you can grow into and won't need to upgrade for a long time, this is your camera. I look at this camera as more of an investment more than an expense. Don't get "sticker shock" by the price tag. This is truly an example of you pay for what you get. The quality you get outweighs the cost both for HD video and RAW or JPEG stills.

The best imagining device with a crop sensor

By Am-Expat from San Francisco, CA, USA/St Petersburg Russia on 07/05/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I upgraded from my first DSLR, a D90, after shooting 3 decades with film. After 85,000 frames, the D90 is still flawless and likely to keep working at a high level for years to come. When the D7000 was announced, the specs were quite impressive but I waited for some time before I bought one since the D90 was serving me so well. I've shot with the D7000 for 14 months and find that is an extremely capable camera that should serve anyone who uses Dx format cameras, from beginner to pro. It is easy to use for those beginning in photography with effective automation but is also well suited to the working pro who values control and image quality. I've seen no DX camera with better image quality or low light performance. The most striking performance trait however is not talked about as much as low light work/high ISO, that is incredibly low noise and wide dynamic range at ISO100. Only the $3000 D800 is better in that regard that is so important to landscape photographers. The shadow recovery and lack of noise in shadows needs to be seen to be believed, giving greater post processing flexibility than an other crop sensor camera, and all but a couple full frame sensor cameras, all costing 2-6 times as much. The D7000 is a camera that one can start with and grow in skill over years and never exceed the capability of the camera.

Defective after 1.5 months

By DigitalNoGood from Undisclosed on 06/26/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Was great for a month and a half, and I was really happy with my choice. Now it has the "Blinking Green Light of Death" issue. This is a known issue that apparently has not been fixed by Nikon. Memory card access light blinks when camera is turned off. It drains the battery. You have to either remove the battery or memory cards when you store the camera. Only solution is "send back to Nikon?" That's terrible considering they have already seen the problem and continue to release products with it. Quality and dependability is not the same as my three previous Nikon film SLRs.

Out of the box, needed some fine tuning

By Marley from Undisclosed on 06/26/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have owned the D7000 for one year and one month. I purchased it as a backup to my D3 and to replace my D200. I have only used it for about 5 weddings, one last November and 4 weddings this last May and June. It was two weeks ago that upon a very close review of the images created by my D7000, I noticed that none of my focal points are crisp and clear. At this point, I can manually focus my lenses better than my D7000 focuses itself. Unfortunately, this cost me some very good wedding images. I will send it in for repair with a letter begging for leniency on the one year warranty and providing images that prove that the camera had never performed properly. I believe in Nikon and believe that this problem will be solved. I just hope that it is not at my expense.

nikon d7000 - great product

By tom from tennessee on 06/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

the strap holders should be a the bottom, back of the camera body because with even a small, long lens, the camera hangs awkwardly in front of your body - if the holders were on the back it would lay comfortably - for quicker wildlife/sports photos, would really like to see a camera body that that three vertically aligned knobs for instant acess ie, shutter speed, aperature, iso so in anything but auto mode you don't have to go back to the menu screen to adjust iso - i currently use auto iso because you simply don't have time to adjust these three basic tools in most situations - would also like to see exposure compensation in increments of 0.2 up to about 2.4 rather 0.3 up to 3 .0 - might be easier to fine tune - would also suggest in the manual a clearer definition of/between center weighted average and matrix - went from the d90 to the d7000, love it - it's a great piece of equipment for the money - don't know why but when using the nikon 300,f2.8, vr2 lens the photos appear to be more crisp than the d90? - would recommend this camera for any level of user

D7000

By Nikon user for 3 years from Undisclosed on 06/21/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I pre-ordered the D7000 in the Fall of 2011. Loved the camera until I started seeing "dust spots" on my pics. Luckily, I purchased an extended warranty from the store. After 3 attempts to clean the sensor and have the right sensor replaced, the dust spots came back. After replacing the camera, I noticed spots on the new camera after only taking 100 pics. I researched on the Internet to find out it was probably oil spots on the sensor due to the shutter and that it cannot be cleaned. I have the opportunity to take back the camera and buy a Cannon 7D. What would Nikon due to keep me as a customer?

D7000 Headache

By Keenanrocks from Memphis, TN, USA on 06/12/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I Just came back from Ukraine shooting for 2 months with my D7000.. I wish I could say all was perfect with this camera but I can't. I already had it worked on while under warranty .It came back without any kind of explanation if it was fixed or not,It wasn't fixed....Shame on you Nikon... Even if it was a Nikon Authorized Repair Station I should of been told exactly what they looked at.. I asked about this the day I picked it up and the man told me that Nikon never sends back a note saying what they did or didn't do.. If that is true or not I don't know but I know they did not send anything with mine..And on top of that I still had to pay shipping costs! It's the preview button,sometimes when I press it to view it will not work,I have to change angles of the camera so it will come on..Sometimes when I press to view it will even take a photo,or the Illumination light will come on.. Matter of fact I am curious to see what surprises are waiting for me next time I go out and shoot..On the bright side I shot 17,143 photos in Ukraine covering all aspects of life there and D7000 walked like a trooper.. I have always owned a Nikon and never had any troubles.But the fact I did send it in under warranty and it came back to me still the same problems and without any kind of explanation saying that they even looked at it is what's upseting me.. And if Nikon won't fix it for me I will make sure the word gets out around the world.. And if I knew that shooting video would involve all the lens focusing noise I never would of got this. External Mic helps but the input for the plug does not make a good connection or it could be the mic itself.. And I also could talk about the inability to actually shoot 100 continuous frames.. I would get maybe 30 and I am not going to change a setting that will cause me to lose quality of the images

The camera that keeps surprising me

By Former PH2 from Photographer and Video Editor on 05/20/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was introduced to Nikon cameras in the early 80's while a Navy Photographer's Mate. We used the Nikon F3 with the MD-4 Motor drive while shooting intel photos of the Soviet Navy in the Black Sea. The camera was a real tank, virtually indestructible. I had used nothing but Leica's up til then . This camera, and my F-4 and F-5 in later years , made be a believer .When digital cameras were introduced, I wasn't as enthusiastic. I waited until 2006 to buy two D 200s and was pretty happy with them. Last year i needed to replace them. i found myself needing a camera that could shoot available light indoors for sports and weddings. I bought two D700 bodies and thought " thats it , this is all I need". Enter the D7000. A friend bought one and I used it for a " behind the scenes " video camera on a 35mm film shoot. I was able to shoot video and shoot Production stills with this little camera, with no flash, at 5k iso, and get some remarkable images that ended up in the final edit. The production company intercut the video I shot with the 35mm film shot that day, and used the still photos for their web page. I was so impressed with images the D-7000 made I bought one with the 18-200 VRII. I am still using the D700 bodies for work and use the D 7000 as my personal camera, but I have used it many times on projects that require a smaller camera with the 10mm Fisheye. i used DxO software, to convert the shots back to something we can intercut with video shot in cars and other tight places. I am very happy with this camera. I was surprised with this cameras IQ and battery life. The EN-EL 15 battery lasts all day for still photos, and does pretty well with video. I bought two back up batteries for video shoots. Did not buy the grip for this camera. Just didn't need it.

Perfect camera for my photographic needs!

By JimR from Undisclosed on 05/13/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have a D5100 camera the I have nothing but good things to say about, but the D7000 is just a fantastic camera and a real bargain in terms of features and performance. My wife pretty much took over the D5100, so I purchased the D7000 (rather than another D5100) because I felt I was ready to move up to a slightly more advanced camera. The D7000 has surpassed all of my expectations with regard to image quality, ease of use and quality of construction, as well as the aforementioned features and overall performance. I had read Ken Rockwell's articles and tutorials prior to purchase, and that (I believe) helped me a great deal with the use and setup of the D7000...... and enabled me to take great photos from the very beginning. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase of this camera!

Takes Horrible Pictures

By Work & Fun from Indianapolis on 05/10/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Don't buy this camera. I had a D50 for many years that took stunning photos, but lots of noise in low light and not enough MPs for business wall size prints. I thought getting the top Nikon DX format would guarantee even better pictures, plus give me all the features for manual adjustments I often use. I have yet to take a picture with the D7000 that is better than my D50 photos. Colors for the D7000 are terrible, and over exposed. If I need a quick switch to Program mode, it used to guarantee good pictures with my adjustments. Not with this camera. None of the manual modes are good, but are blown out and/or weak colors, even when trying a saturated setting. I have been forced to shoot in Auto, which I hadn't used in 10 years. I haven't taken a sunset picture I've liked with this thing. I even quit my part time income of architectural photography because the D7000 takes such terrible pictures. If I wasn't having problems with my monitor on my old D50, I would use it instead. I can't believe how much money I wasted. With all the money I've thrown away on this D7000 I feel like I should have gone with Canon from the start. I have lost all respect that Nikon can produce quality cameras with this purchase. I've gone from being known for stunning photos to barely shooting at all with this purchase. It's an expensive lemon, and extremely disappointing.

Amazing Features! Features right at your fingertips!

By MFPhotog from Salt Lake City, UT on 05/04/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I upgraded from the D3000 and this camera has everything! Great image quality and everything right at your fingertips instead of having to go to MENU>SETTINGS, etc. They call this a semi-professional camera, but as a professional photog, I think it is amazing! I was debating between this and the D300 and chose this in the end for it's better performance and new technology. I have had so much fun with this camera and would recommend it for sure. It is pretty user-friendly, especially to those who are familiar with Nikon cameras. I did a quick-read of the manual and was able to fully use the camera the first day. Took me a minute to get used to how different it is from the D3000, but not long! This camera rocks! I don't regret a penny I spent on it. The 18-105mm lens is AMAZING, too!!!!

Soft Focus Issues

By Loco335 from Long Island, NY on 04/19/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was excited when I read the reviews of the D7000. After using the camera I was disappointed by the Auto Focus. I thought it was something I was doing, so I started to pour through the manual, then started basic research concerning Nikon Auto Focus online. Much to my surprise, there are literally hundreds of posts regarding this issue. Simply put, this camera is not ready for prime time. I don't want to have to jump through hoops in order to get something so basic as focus to work as expected. I lost too many images to poor focus in the moment of places and people that will not present themselves again to be happy with this camera's performance. I have been a Nikon fan since the 35mm film days (mid 70s) and have owned 5 Nikon digital cameras since then. I have faith in Nikon in that they will "do the right thing" and fix this issue. At this time until this focus issue is fixed, I would not recommend purchasing this camera.

Great overall camera!

By mpphoto from Undisclosed on 03/22/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really like this camera. Nikon doesn't disappoint. For an APS-C camera, it is one of the best. There are far more things that I could write, so my list is not limited to this. I do think, however, that this DSLR is amazing. PROs: - Durable construction - Really low noise at higher ISO - The dual SD card slots is really nice. I'm glad to see Nikon put this in mid-range DSLRs. - Intuitive controls and easy-to-use settings. - Good battery life. CONs: - No X-sync - The mic isn't very good for video, so I would recommend the external mic if video is the primary use, but for me, it's not. I'm a photographer, not a videographer. - Not much else Overall, I think this camera is outstanding. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Amazing camera

By Hansel from Miami, FL, USA on 03/11/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had this camera for a year and it's been nothing short of amazing for me. I haven't had any problems with this camera and I am going to continue to use Nikon as my primary DSLR choice. I recommend this camera to any avid photographer, as its simple to use yet the high quality of the camera is useful for serious photographers.

AF Issue could ruin my liking of Nikon--the jury is still out

By DavidME001 from Texas, USA on 03/05/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased the D7000 in February 2012 after owning the D60 for 5+ years. I've owned other Nikon film products prior to the D60 and have always been a fan of Nikon (though not too much of the D60). Nevertheless, it served my modest needs adequately. Over the past few years, however, my needs have outgrown the D60 and so I went searching for the next step up. The D7000 seemed the logical choice--huge sensor (second only to the D3x at the time) updated processor, metering, AF, and a host of features I could still be learning how to use for years to come. I purchased this camera for a specific occasion--I was shooting an engagement/wedding for a family member--my first gig, if you will. With only having the camera four days before the first shoot, I noticed some softness in my test shots right away and became immediately concerned. This started me down a looooong path in investigation of D7000 AF issues which I had unfortunately not seen or heard about prior to my buying the camera. Long story short: I've gone through the troubleshoots suggested by Nikon and several third party web help sites. I've carefully tried to calibrate the camera using the AF fine tune feature as suggested by all these parties, but to no avail. So...I've sent the camera in to the Nikon service center in California. I am patiently and hopefully waiting that they will fix this issue.

I LOVE IT !!!!!

By WeQuick from Undisclosed on 02/17/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've always been a Canon man, but one salesman told me about the Nikon D7000 while I was looking at both the Canon 60D and 7D .... I did my homework and watched all kinds of comparisons and decided that the D7000 was the one for me ..... Only problem was that there were none left in North America because of the flood that hit the Nikon factory in Thailand ... Every other salesman tried to get me to go with the Canon, telling me how much better the video quality was and a bunch of other reasons, but every review and video I watched told me the opposite.... Finally one store called me and they had found me one. I've had it just over 2 weeks and have snapped close to 3500 pictures and shot at least 20 videos ... The video quality is AWESOME and in my opinion I would say even clearer then the Canon even though the Canon is capable of shooting more FPS ... The first video that I shot, which happened to be the first video I ever edited was featured in a local paper (The Montreal Gazette) and my video got over 12,000 hits on Youtube the first day! .. Most people commenting on how clear the video was and wanting to know what kind of camera I shot it with !! ... The picture quality from the D7000 leaves the pictures from the Canon looking like it was a throw-away camera bought at the Dollar store !! .... Buy this camera, you WON'T be disappointed !!!

Perfect middle-of-the-road DSLR

By WindyCityShooter from Undisclosed on 02/02/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This camera is a perfect example of why I shoot Nikon. I use it primarily with my Nikon 24-70mm f2.8, 70-200mm f2.8, 50mm f1.4 lenses and the Nikon MB-D11 Battery Pack, and occasionally misc HDSLR accesories. The camera fits perfectly in outdoor settings under low light conditions and is just at home in the studio! The performance at high ISOs completely out performs many other cameras in its category, including the Nikon D90, Canon 60D, and Canon 7D. Not only is there less noise, but as a former film photographer, I was happy to see that the noise actually rendered to look more like film grain, which is a much more pleasing look than pixels. The metering system is also extremely accurate, and works even better with high quality N series lenses. This camera can perform, hands down! Controls are very easy to get a hold of and are quick to learn and adjust. In use with the MB-D11 battery pack this camera gets a full body feel that feels much more comfortable than simply the body, which has a smaller feel for someone with larger hands. Also, additional shutter release and controls make shooting portraits quicker, easier, and more comfortable. Super bright LCD screen, makes it very easy to review and change internal menu options during daylight. However, when using video, I recommend getting a magnified hood-loupe that allows you to view the LCD as an electronic viewfinder, get better stability, and focus more accurately. I could rave about this camera forever, however, there are some things I should point out... The auto focus is very often just slightly off which causes problems at large aperatures with shorter depths of field. This can be corrected though by calibrating the lens through the camera; this takes time and is a pain, but can be done. Also, even with two of the highest performance 16GB SDHC cards I could find, it has some lag after 2min video recordings and when using the Continuous High burst mode. And as far as video goes, it's fantastic for occasional use, but lacks the ability to shoot 60fps @ 720p. Overall, the Nikon D7000 is a powerful force for heavy use not only by a professional, but by anyone who wants superior image quality for a relatively low price.

Additional Camera

By willyj from Iowa on 01/22/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Thought I would purchase this in addition to my D90, works great, but find myself relying more and more on my Trusty D90, My D90 seems to have that extra toughness the D7000 lacks, doing outdoor wildlife photos seem to be the D90's Forte' and the 7000 seems to prefer indoors/studio work. Both Great Nikon Products, but for me the D90 shines a little brighter, even though its an older model.

Excellent buy.

By Kallewille from Dayton, OH on 12/11/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

If you're willing to spend this kind of money, it's the camera to buy. I must confess, I never picked up a Canon to compare, but I have access to Nikon lenses so I stuck with Nikon. Having said that, I couldn't be happier. My goodness what a camera! I own, and still love, the Canon G11, but this is my first DSLR and I don't regret buying it for a moment. I can no longer blame the camera for bad images, it's all on me now. I made the mistake of picking up a coworker's D3 with a lens more expensive than the D7000 on it, but for the money, I don't think you can get any better. If you have the money, you will not regret buying this camera. Should I find myself needing more in 5 years time, I'm sure the full format will be the way to go, but for the price, this quality is outstanding!

Nice Camera

By Akemi-N from Undisclosed on 12/10/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Overall this is a very solid camera, with many things to like. The image quality at ISO 3200, and 6400, is very good and nearly matches the D700. The lower ISO images are nothing short of incredible! I love the ability to use the camera as commander, with my strobes (SB600 & SB700), as part of Nikon's CLS. The integration of the magnesium alloy covers is a welcome addition and adds to the excellent ergonomics. The dual card slots are exceptionally nice, I can shoot all day in RAW and JPG. I would prefer simpler menus with less choices, but I recognize that many enjoy this. My only complaint, and it is not a big one, is the location of the ISO button. I would much prefer the ISO on the top with easy access, and view of the ISO setting in the viewfinder. I would get rid of the AE/AF lock button, and video feature. In 25 years of shooting Nikon (professionally and as a hobby) I have never once used, or wanted either feature. I want a prosumer camera that just takes pictures. If I want video...I will by a video camera. I do understand that I am in a minority on this. Overall, this is an excellent camera and I would not hesitate to use this professionally. If this is your only camera, it should serve you well for many years.

D7000 is just amazing

By AAKAlan from Undisclosed on 11/29/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've owned Nikon bodies since my Nikkormat in the early 1960s. Though generally brilliant, each camera left me looking for something more, a solution for something that just didn't work for me. I've had both prosumer and professional cameras, expensive and reasonably-priced bodies. When I first looked at the D7000, I thought I would be downgrading from a semi-pro body. That is, until I actually had it in my hand. It is an amazing instrument that delivers almost every feature I might ever desire at a performance level that I can't quite believe. The sensor is stunning. Is there noise at ISO 800 and above? Yes. But it is so fine-grained and so even it almost never visible in prints and cleans up beautifully - up to ISO 3200. For the first time, ever, I shoot at ISO 1600 with impunity, and without noise-reduction. And for me, that's important as my main contract is shooting events at the regioinal arena and theater. With two card slots and a battery that never seems to die (I got 1400 shots on one battery recently, and it still wasn't fully discharged - I've never actually run the battery out!!). The weight and balance is perfect. It is fast. The autofocus fine-tuning is invaluable. I have nothing but praise for this amazing camera body. It was not a step down from the D200/D300. It was a major step up!

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Wow, what a great camera! I have a D70S which was my first DSLR (and a bunch of film bodies) and the D7000 is a great step up. I am still working to master all of the 7000's capabilities because I just don't learn as fast as I'd like to. Also, I will probably purchase one of the books or videos available from many vendors. Nikon I love you but your manuals could use some improvement for those of us who are in the western hemisphere.

By Bob from Redding, CA on 11/21/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Being in the market for a new DSLR, I talked to many fellow photographers about their Nikon DSLRs and one body keep coming up as a favorite camera, the D7000. After reading the very positive test results in Popular Photo, I decided on the D7000. I was not disappointed, this is an amazing camera. I love the fact that I can record raw images on one memory card and JPEG on the other memory card. Nikon has also made it very easy to navigate through all the menues quickly.

Great upgrade!

By JMunozPhoto from Yakima, WA on 11/17/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This camera really met all expectations! I had purchased the D3100 less than a year ago after putting photography away for 10 years. I loved the D3100's features as it really helps the beginner enjoy shooting rather than figure out settings. After almost a year I found my self outgrowing the D3100 and marveling over the D7000's upgrades. I bought the D7000 camera about 2 weeks ago and have loved the difference in feel, response, additional features, and of course the admiration from others that know the Nikon line. Cons: The camera strap doesn't have the model on it or is not extra padded (same as the D3100) to support the additional weight of the camera.

Waiting to Exhale

By JCW from East Bridgewater, MA on 11/17/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Being an Nikon Novice and only owning my first Nikon and my D7000 for a few weekdays I don't think I can write a proper review of the product. I want to love this camera but am still getting used to it. I have had a lot of issues with the auto fucos and have not once seen the autofocus assist light turn on once. I am afraid I am either doing somthing wrong or it is not functioning. I want to reccomend this to other users, but I am still learning to use it so I am in a photo limbo. I am planning on keeping it, but I want to learn so much more before making a proper review.

Love camera and scene features

By L3gsd from Port Charlotte, FL on 11/05/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my first D-SLR and I love it! I was concerned how difficult it might be to learn to use after my previous camera (with similar settings, but not a SLR). It wasn't difficult at all (though I'm still learning about photography/settings etc. and probably always will be) and I've enjoyed taking (nearly 3000) photos the past few weeks. I was concerned about not using flash on a baby's eyes, indoor low lighting, and wanting some nice baby pictures. I had only 2 days to start to figure out what settings to use before I took the trip to visit my new grandchild. I've got some fantastic shots of baby and the ones I like best aren't even with flash. The lens I used most for these photos was the Nikkor AF-S 18-55mm. The setting I used most was "P" but I experimented with a few others. Outdoor "fall colors" setting in "scenes" is a great preset feature for the tree photos. It did improve the appearance of fall colors and I can't pretend how to understand it did that; but then even better still when I used a polarizing filter the colors are spectacular. Best "fall leaf" photos I've ever taken. I can't wait to print some of my best shots; I've only printed some small 2x3 size to test quality and color - without manipulating the photos at all in my graphics program. The scene setting for "close up" (displays a flower for an example in the setting) which I used on my husband's face, outdoors, was the sharpest and clearest picture I think I've ever taken . . right down to seeing the pores on his face. And the scene setting for night time scenes that have some lighting in the background, I found worked well for photos of people standing in front of a large window during daytime. I'm SO pleased with this camera and happy that I passed up the small point and shoot cameras. I had started to look at the point/shoot cameras out there and was displeased with the quality of photos on every one I tested in-store. If you want great pictures and great prints and don't mind learning just a little bit about how to use the settings on it, you'll love this camera. It does have "auto" settings ... but if that's all you're going to use then you might want to go for a less expensive model.

One of the Best yet !!!

By Dujeneke from Los Angeles on 11/03/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Up Graded to the D7000 from the D5000 and putting it to the test, Low light, bright sun, inside, outside, still life and action (fast flying doves).Do not miss the tilt back. It does all that I want it to do and more. Leaps and bounds above the D5K and after using Nikon since the 70s this Camera is one of the best yet for Pro or Hobbyist and a keeper at least for me. No complaints at present shooting 3-500 shots a day, Yea Digital.

Soft fuzzy images

By wsblack from Undisclosed on 10/27/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My wife bought this for me as an upgrade to my D3000. She knew I wanted the D90 but surprised me with the D7000 instead. The camera's features are excellent. However, when I took it out for my first real set of picture taking with the family. I noticed the pictures were a bit soft, fuzzy almost. This was slightly noticeable at full resolution and became very clear with even .5 magnification with ViewNX. Since then I have taken hundreds of pictures with three lenses that work perfectly fine on my D3000. I have called Nikon support for help, uploaded pictures, changed every conceivable setting (and some that didn't make sense). Still the same issue. Auto-focus, manual focus, etc. My main gripe is Nikon never calls me back. I have to chase them down for them to do anything with the call. As of yet, no resolution. I have gone back to my 3000 and am hoping this gets fixed. I can't recommend this camera.

features that just don't end

By grschoon from wisconsin on 10/15/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I did a lot of reveiwing before I bought this camera. I had a good Idea what I was getting, but once I started shooting one word came to me, Whoooooo this is great. I did a double take on the model to see if I hadn't picked up a D3x. The D7000 is fantastic and that's selling it short. Focus Fast, Shutter speeds Fast, progams that just don't stop and easy to use.I was really surprised on just how easy this camera is to use. With all these features and ease to use, this is one great DSLR, If your thinking of getting DSLR there's only one way to go NIKON and D7000, great camera and great pricing.....

Old School meets New School

By Old School Shooter from Yonkers, N.Y. on 10/15/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Being an old school film shooter, I finally decided to jump into digital photography with both feet. Having used manual film SLR's since the 1970's, there was some trepidation about buying and using DSLR's. I have used and still own SLR's from other manufacturers, but I never owned a Nikon until now. After talking to friends who are lifelong Nikon fans and researching the Nikon website I settled on the D7000. While the D7000 is an entry level professional DSLR, as an experienced amateur I'm slowly, but surely getting the feel for shooting with the D7000 and so far I haven't been disappointed at all. The features of the D7000 are wonderful as I gain more experience and familiarity with shooting digital pictures. I'll be adding to my collection of Nikon glass and accessories for sure. The lens I purchased with the D7000 is the AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300 f/4-5.6G. I'm also thinking about purchasing the Nikon F6, as I still like to shoot film. Being an aviation professional I enjoy attending airshows, I'll be using the D7000 to shoot some rather exciting photos at these events. It will be exciting to see how the D7000 performs at a fast paced event such as flying displays.

Video almost useless

By Jake from Texas on 10/11/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The live view only for the video is useless for me as I am usually in the bright sun light. I need the view finder. It is also had to focus correctly for video. Also I need a tri-pod for quality video which is not always handy. And no matter how big the SD card is, only 20 minute clips will be filmed. Some of the features are great for stills and some I don't care about. Some are difficult to find in a hurry: info and then have to turn through all the different choices for the scene modes. Absolutely love the great burst. The D50 is much easier to focus than the D7000 (for me)

A Professional Level DX Format Winner

By GES from Sunnyvale CA on 09/22/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased the D7000 camera, as a second partner for my D3100 Nikon camera. The D7000 enabled me to use a number of older classic AI-S series Nikkor lenses, which take great pictures on both bodies, but do not have light metering on the D3100. The D7000 solves this problem in a unique way, by allowing the user to describe the lenses to the D7000, and then selecting those lenses by number. I'm committed to the DX format, and enjoy the sharper central half of the frame area of these classic lenses. The D7000 has a new 16.2 mpx CMOS sensor, and gives even better pixel noise levels compared to the lower cost D3100, which expands the ISO range for DX cameras. The D7000 employs a magnesium body construction which makes it as solid as its more expensive FX format Pro cameras. The polished plastic LCD screen protective cover is a welcome accessory that comes with the camera and is easily replacable if scratched. With these two DX bodies, and a mixture of the older AI-S and newer AFS-G lenses, I have nearly everything I need for great pictures. I keep hoping for DX scaled versions of the highly rated 24mm f/1.4, and the 85 mm f/1.4 FX prime lenses in the G form, or even a really good and sharp fast 10 mm rectilinear prime DX lens, but for now the D7000 gives serious amateurs access to the features normally found on much pricier FX format cameras. And the D3100 makes an affordable second body to go with the D7000. The 17-55 mm f/2.8 AFS-G Nikkor, is my main walk around lens with either body.

Disappointed, Quality?

By D70toD7000 from Chicago, IL on 09/22/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was not pleased with the quality of the photos, as they were not as good as the ones taken with my D70. I submitted a sample photo to the support center. They came back with solutions I knew were not the root cause, but I took more photos with the settings they suggested. There was no improvement, so I sent a new sample. They then came back with If you consider that your camera is not working properly, feel free to send your camera in for service. The if in this statement insinuates that the camera may be ok. It should have been obvious that something was wrong with the camera from looking at the photos. If I send it in, I will miss the fall soccer season entirely. Nikon needs better and quicker support options.

Using the "wrap" feature for sports

By fotofill from Nashville,TN on 09/15/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Often times during action sports, unwanted subjects will pass through the frame between the main subject and camera. Using the wrap feature, the focus remains on the target subject, as they move through the frame.

Perfect for the proffesional in all of us

By Yeeha!Photo from San Diego, CA on 09/11/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This camera will support ANYTHING a pro needs to do, while being easy enough to let anyone get started and grow as far as their talents will take them. Construction: It is sturdy and well built seems to me I will be willing it to my kids (technology will overcome it first). Camera: You want it? It does it! Really! I could describe all the features, but really it can do it. Now, you do need to be willing to learn. Remember this is a camera you can use to become all your talents and training will allow. There is a lot to learn, but the camera is really forgiving and has settings to get your mom/wife/husband the ability to "pont and shoot". The only esception is the DX format. If you don't know what that means, learn it. But you probably can't afford it. If you do want to move to DX, do some research. Video: Allows my kids to make their homework projects with attaching a seperate shotgun mike. Great HD video! Be prepared to get an accessory shotgun mike for the hotshoe. One of my biggest complaints about the whole camera is that neither the ML-L3 wireless remote, nor the MC-DC2 wired remote, activate the video camera on. I really hope Nikon can make a firmware upgrade to resolve this. Reccomend: Get the 18-200 VR zoom lens instead of the kit lens. Get a ML-L3 remote (useful despite not activating video) Get at least the SB-700 flash

Step right on up

By Pictureted from Redwood City, CA on 09/06/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I used to shoot film years ago with some great cameras, but Kodachrome got too expensive. A couple of years ago I saw a friend's D40, got very interested in cameras again and bought a D90. A truly tremendous camera. But... I had several AIS lenses from my early years and wanted the opportunity to more easily use them. When the D7000 came out I didn't really think I wanted it, but some of its feature set increasingly appealed to me. Yes U1 and U2 are useful, dual cards make me more secure, better AF helps sometimes, but what I didn't expect was the improvement in image quality. Since I shot slides for years, I got used to editing in the viewfinder and cropping never played a significant role in my photography. With the sensor improvements on the D7000, I find myself cropping much more because I can. I shoot mostly macro at base ISO, so improved performance at high ISO plays little role in my photography, but finer detail, better color and less shadow noise are significant assets. The D90 is a wonderful camera. The D7000 is better.

Awesome Photos

By chefbilla from Baltimore ,Md on 09/05/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This camera is awesome! I stepped up from a D70 that served me well.There is so comparison though.The quality of the photos with no post processing is awesome.The camera snaps a photo with crisp action, there is no feeling of button delay.The menu is easy to navigate and location of the sub menus is easy to find. I sugest making your first menu adjustments out of the box and then tweak them as you go.I shoot all manual and I had no problems adjusting on the fly. If you can buy this camera and the 18-200 zoom you can go out all day and not change lenses which can save lots of time and dust. It earns camera of the year for Sure!

OMG! Makes picture taking so easy!

By Ray from California on 09/02/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I know it probably sounds counter-intuitive, but this camera really has made photography as simple as pointing and shooting for me these days. All the thinking is done to perfection by the camera! I can focus on the subject matter instead of fiddling with knobs and settings. It's funny, but my D7000 is now my regular point-and-shoot camera with super image quality! Videos are fantastic too - when done right - but not nearly as point-and-shoot as taking stills.

Excellent imaging technology

By UFOwga from Washington DC on 08/31/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am a professional photographer, and have been in the Nikon family, starting with Nikon F. I was introduced to HD digital with the D700. However D7000 is in my opinion: Extraordinary technology! I am more than impressed with the motion picture quality HD video! To me its a souped up camera in a small package! The images and video will blow your mind! Understanding Film, however at 30 frames per second, my video is exceptional! I can say, I have never seen such exceptional video! Not to mention, the images it generates!! WOW is all I can say!

Throws oil all over sensor

By Bucky from Undisclosed on 08/23/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This camera is a complete lemon. Do some research about the oil sensor issue. You don't want this camera - I owned it 9 months and 4 of those months the camera was back and forth to Nikon and they still have not resolved.

Evolution revolution

By elksguy from Santa Maria, CA on 08/18/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have owned a D70, D80, D90 and a D7000. Even though these cameras are consecutive upgrades they are worlds apart from each other. When I upgraded from the D70 to the D80 I noticed a huge difference in performance and handling. There were many more options and a larger color palette in the D80. I thought the D80 was the ultimate until the D90 came along. Another giant leap for me. It was hard to revert back to the D80. The D90 felt worlds above my hard working D80. The D90 felt better in my hand and was even more responsive than the D80. Then came the D7000. I anticipated another quantum leap forward, but I was at first I was a little disappointed. It didn't feel as good as the D90. Close, but just not quite as comfortable in my hand. Clearly better features though and the images were stunning. And the menu options enormous. The more I shot though the better it felt and those marvelous sharp images at high ISO's, incredible. The more I used it the better it felt and the more I appreciated the customization possibilities. I found myself making minute adjustments to color and getting images under difficult lighting that I did not think possible. This camera has come of age and it is spectacular. But you have to work with it and master it. Now It is my favorite and I still am exploring new tricks. The auto focus and focus tracking are superb. I appreciate the dual card slots and the silent mode especially for church weddings. It helps more than you would think. The viewfinder is very bright and works perfectly even though I wear glasses. The battery life is incredible. I don't use live view or video often. It's just not my thing. But its there if you need it. The LCD like the D90's is great. I don't mind the plastic protector at all and it has saved my screen on a couple of occasions. I have the optional battery pack and though much different from the D80/90 it works welll and makes the ergonomics better for my big hands. My only gripe is the mode selector. It does not lock. Nikon, please put a central mode lock button on it. This camera makes my 25 year old 80-200 F2.8 lens look better than ever. I have absolutely no lens compatibility problems at all. I love the fact that the product improvements and technological innovations has made such a differnce. I love all my Nikon cameras and it is fun to use my old ones . But nothing compares to the new tech and the D7000. Great job Nikon.

A wolf in sheeps clothing

By mannypr from Puerto Rico on 08/11/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have a D90 which I bought in order to learn about Digital photography but the more I learn I noticed that the D90 as good as it is lacked some tools I would have liked to have , like mirror lock up and 14 bit processing like the D300s . Along comes the D7000 that had all those things I which the D90 had but didn't.The icing on the cake was that not only did it have all those goodies that a semi pro camera has but on that of that you get a magnesium built , a brand new metering system of 2016 pixels RGB instead of the 420 of the D90 and a very fast autofocusing system with no less then 9 cross type focusing sensors .But all this is nothing if the camera did not perform . I bought the camera and not only does it perform , but it does way above my expectations. Those 16 MP over 12 of the D90 is 33% more and believe me when I say you can see it as added detail . This together with the sensors great dynamic range gives photos added dimensionality with neutral colors . The handling is beautiful as it is almost the same size as the D90 but much more sturdy feeling in had as it is made of magnesium alloy. You can switch between 12 or 14 bit , configure the autofocusing to your hearts content , do in camera raw conversion to JPG in different compressions plus much more. The D7000 has redefined what can be expected in a top level consumer camera , so much so that it could very well be called a semi pro camera with a consumer price , It's a wolf in sheeps clothing.. Highly recommended !

Nice photos while the camera worked

By BrokenD7000 from Neenah, WI on 08/06/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I hadn't bought a nice camera in years. After researching and asking friends, I chose the D7000. I used it for a couple months and started to get comfortable with it, really enjoying the features and photo quality, but then it decided not to turn on. It's now in the shop. It's really disappointing to spend that kind of money and have a camera stop working within a couple months of purchase.

I was planning to upgrade from my Nikon D90 since the product was launched. Now I acquired it in this July. I'm quite happy with the D7000. It's really a great product in terms of Image Quality, Ergonomics, Build Quality, Usability, Low Light Capability; and also a significant upgrade over D90. I love it.

Horrible!!!!!!!

By JDCorr from Green Bay, WI on 07/24/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've had nothing but issues with this camera!! 3 months after purchasing it, I found spots in my pictures starting at f11. I got it cleaned twice by the store I purchased it from, without much success. They said it's some sort of oily substance that is showing up on my sensor. So off to Nikon it went, when I got it back it was good for about a day or two then the spots showed up again. So I called Nikon customer service and they gave me some "textbook" answer to my questions and told me to ship it back once again. This time when I got it back, the first test pictures I took with it still showed the spots!!!! I bought this camera to take pictures of my newborn son and so far, I've been without the camera more then I have been with it. I've missed out on so many 1st with him already!! Unfortunately it's too late for me (I can't return the thing because I didn't find the spots until after having it for 3months) but not for you...don't waste your time or money!!!

Top Two Reasons to Upgrade From The D90

By D7000 Semi-Pro Champ from Killeen, TX on 07/21/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was really happy with my D90 and I still use it for certain things, so why did I buy the D7000? There are many reasons, but the top two are 1) User settings, and 2) stronger, more robust build with the metal alloy body. 1) User Settings. I use this camera for doing macro or close-up work and for landscaping. Both of these require different settings. Ive programmed these settings in to U1 & U2. Also the camera comes with a nifty array of presets that are easily accessed by placing the rotary dial on the left to Scene and turning the wheel on the inside right of the camera you can scroll through them. This feature is very useful in a pinch. These two conveniences alone are worth the upgrade. The U1 & U2 settings are such time-savers in the field that I cant think how Ive done without them up until now. 2) Im rough on equipment and Ive dropped this camera a couple of times, and the body took it in stride, without any noticeable damage. It took a licking and kept on ticking so to speak. Damage to my lenses was more substantial unfortunately. Yes it was worth the extra cash for the D7000, and I wouldnt hesitate to do it again " no buyers remorse.

Great Camera

By BK from Manchesteer, Ct on 07/07/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this camera the past week, it is amazing. I have always enjoyed photography, still have my EM, and N8008 which I purchased years ago. I purchased the D5000 but was unable to use many of my older lenses, takes great pictures, but not all the features I was looking for. I have been going back and forth over the D700, and D7000. I decided on the 7000, due to the availability of the D700. I will purchase a FX model, but have decided to wait till the next model that will replace it is introduced. Many of my lenses are for the FX format and can invest in quality glass. I shot last weekend with my 80-200 2.8 and 85 1.8 prime, The results have been fantastic.

Shoulda Stuck with Canon

By Unhappy Canon Transfer-- from Undisclosed on 07/05/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Received this camera as many reviews talked about how great it is -- well, I wouldn't really know yet, as of picture 16 (first time out of bag) there is already a pixel out! I don't believe anyone should pay that kind of money and then have it not function right the very first time. Then, to get a hold of Nikon took days... only then did I find out other people had problems with Nikon's support. Not a happy customer at all. Now, for this grand amount of money, I get a repaired camera. Great. Just great.

Excellent camera!

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have just begun using the Nikon D7000. I am coming from a competitor that I was having trouble with the product. So far the controls and features are really easy to use. I will be giving the camera a workout this evening/tonight at our local rodeo. I am sure all will go well. I would recommend this camera to anyone looking to go beyond point and shoot cameras. The flexibility of changing lens and a lot more storage just helps on deciding which camera to use. Not to mention Nikons extensive line of lens either. Looking forward to more fun and valuable experience with my D7000.

Just buy now. Don't waste time reading reviews.

By @ryguychiguy from Chicago, IL on 06/19/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What a great camera. I bought this thing a month ago and I've loved every second of it. My skill level would be considered amateur+, and this camera is what i consider to be a "prosumer" device. Its designed for people who know what they're doing, who will be taking lots of shots over the life of the camera, and will be able to use this camera to its full extent. If you will be shooting in full auto mode the whole time, consider the 5100 or lesser cameras, you don't need the impressive firepower this thing has. So let me just talk about the photos. They come out stunningly clear and sharp. The colors pop and are very accurate. The flash is good, and it provides more light, it doesn't wash out the photos or make everything look whiter. The viewfinder is a beauty and the videos are pretty darn good. If you are going to be taking more videos than photos, maybe do the 5100 (it has 30fps, unlike the D7000's 24fps). It has great ISO tolerance too. The white balance isn't always the most accurate on auto, but since I shoot raw I can just change that later so I don't fuss with it while shooting. I did not get the kit lens, i just bought the 50mm 1.8 af-d which is 75mm because of the D7000's cropped sensor. The two storage slots are nice, and overall I can't say enough about this camera. Its not too big, it gets good battery life, the screen is good and it has a good weight to it. The mechanical click you feel is just wonderful, and lettin it rip at 6 frames per second is awesome. The only 2 gripes I have are that it doesn't shoot 30 fps, and its not full frame. But those are two things I knew going into it so its ok. Lets just say, if you buy it and you don't like it, something is wrong with you

By D-Rock from Denver, CO on 06/16/2011


Bottom Line:

I read tons, and did a lot of research before buying the Nikon D7000. It is truly a wonderful camera, easy to use just ask my wife who is not a technical person. Even my 11 year old son can grab the camera and turn out amazing pics using the just the Auto setting. Like any electronic product they do and will have problems. I now have mine in getting a flash and metering issue fixed. Well if you think about it this little thing has an computer inside it. Over all, I would buy this camera again in a heart beat, in fact I have thought about buying another one for my wife. Great camera.

Great IQ

By DWC from Raleigh NC on 06/09/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have one of the first batch of D7000, I purchased it the first day it was available, I had a D300 and D3s as well, 2 months after buying the D7000 i sold the D300, The image quality at ISO 800 is far better than the D300 which is a great camera but i found the images quite noisy even at low ISO, The D7000 has been great and it has traveled around the world and shot in some very bad conditions and worked perfectly, I recently had a problem with the rear dial but Nikon repaired it quickly and without fuss, It would be nice if the buffer was bigger and the bracketing was more than 3 shots which really is no big deal, A live histogram would make this extra special and could be easily done with a firmware upgrade-please Nikon

Absolutely Great Camera

By nervemotion from Los Angeles, CA on 06/08/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this camera for over a month now. I upgraded from a D40, and the picture quality, the way the camera feels, and the fact that I'm able to auto bracket for HDR shots smoothly makes the D7000 a pleasure to use. The layout is easy to learn, and all the controls are laid out to focus on taking great photography. Well done Nikon.

Great camera at a good price point

By Woodenmike from chicago on 06/06/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Extremely well built solid camera body that has sealed construction for protection against rain, dust, and moisture. Too many features to list, but so far it seems well thought out with relatively simple menu and button layouts. I would prefer the attachment points for the camera strap to come out the sides of the body to balance the camera instead of the top when there is a long lens or zoom lens on the unit, but so far my only complaint.

Takes great pictures when working.

By slayer from South Milwaukee, WI on 06/02/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've owned this camera for 5 months. I feel the camera takes great pictures. However I had recently taken a trip to Disney, and on the second day after taking about 100photos that particular day, the camera locks up giving me a "ERR" Message. Sounded as though while taking last picture the mirror locked up. Camera controls will do nothing at this time. Able to review pics thats it. Last pic had a large bold black line running through it. Checked online forums and see that this is somewhat of a common occurance with the D7000. I would guess I have a little over 1000 actuations. Called Nikon and they said send it in. Now I am just waiting. Im a bit upset about having to pay shipping fee even though camera is still under warranty. Im also a bit worried that same thing will happen again if they replace whatever part that is causing the problem. However maybe it will happen outside of my warranty date. Not sure I would recommend this product unless I get reassurance that this problem is resolved.

Slightly crippled but still the best

By HTGamingPC from Undisclosed on 05/26/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So close to being the perfect DSLR. Its almost like they crippled it with a small buffer and a mode dial instead of a mode button. The mode dial seems especially out of place on an otherwise very pro feeling camera. Also, like all other DSLRs, the buttons just aren't customizeable enough. The bracket button should be programmable. The flash button should be able to bring up the CLS menu. The new user modes are handy but could be refined; it would be nice if you could make them recall only specific settings instead of all camera settings. Lastly I'm dissapointed they didn't add something simple like bluetooth or at least improved eye fi support. Just to give a frame of reference, I would rate a D3s or D3x as 4 stars, D700, D300/s as 3 stars and all other dslrs as 2 or less stars

Wonderful Camera

By baseelo from Deabron, MI on 05/19/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I just love this camera. I'm mainly amazed by the pixels which make it the second best, in this aspect, in the history of Nikon, surpassed only by the D3X and it surpasses even the legendary D3s in this particular doman, which is really impressive. This camera gives me all I need in terms of speed, flexibility, pixles and more. When you own a D7000 it is very hard to "upgrade" to anything else. I just love it.

I had read about the Nikon D7000 many months ago and waited to try and find one! It seemed as if they were always back ordered when I was ready to buy. I love this camera and especially how quiet it is. The new U1 and U2 features are especially handy when switching from landscape to people quickly. The skin tones are so natural! Low noise and beautiful dynamic range make this a great choice!

Great Camera

By jacar from Lakeland, FL on 05/01/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I went from the D200 to the D7000 because I could not afford a D700. Was a good move. 7000 is exceptional. Really pleased with lack of noise in high ISO situations. Have to get used to differences in where buttons, settings are compared to the D200. Lighter weight than the 200 is also a great feature. Being able to use my other lens also a plus. Only negative was having to buy new batteries and cards. Liked the 200's larger card & capacity of card rather than the SD cards.

Best APS-C (DX) DSLR on the MARKET Today!

By NikonCoupleSoFlo from Hollywood, FL on 04/28/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

First off let me say, I own the D5000/D90 and just recently sold the D3100 to get the D7000. The D7000 is utterly amazing. I have taken shots at 10,000 ISO which are usable. What other DX DSLR can achieve this? none. I do think this camera really shines with better quality glass/lenses f2.8 or faster. I usually use the Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8 and I am blown away at the picture quality (see below). Granted the D90/D5000 are great cameras - D7000 is just much better. The D7000 is only 1 stop behind the D700 that says a lot too. The metering and WB are much improved over the D90/D5000 as well. The WB for the most shots I have taken are dead on or require slight adjustments again comparing to D90/D5000. The 14-bit RAW loss less compression gives you more dynamic range too. I highly recommend this camera - ignore the rumors of soft images that is mainly due to inferior quality lenses being used and/or operator error.

this is great camera. i've been very happy with it so far. easy to use (like the whole nikon line up since the 60's). battery lasts for ever. i havn't tried the video yet but i hear good things. i got it with 18-105 kit lens. i wish i wouldn't have. i havn't found it not to be up to the caliber that the camera is. i honestly can't get a very sharp picture out of it. get good glass. spend the extra money. it is worth it. i got the 50mm 1.4g at the same time. i use it 90% of the time. incredibly sharp. this is why i gave a 4 star rating instead of a 5. the body is a 5 though.

Reintroduced to photography

By G. Karl from Great North Woods New Hampshire on 04/17/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

For years i was involved with film photography. Work pulled me away from this passion for 12 years. I now have time to renew the passion and moved into the world of digital. I was a Canon A1 film enthusist, so my first thought was to purchase a semi pro 60D. When i began looking at the Nikon D90 as an alternative I was somewhat impressed. However, when the D7000 was introduced I was smitten. I pre ordered a D7000 in November of 2010 and consider it the best photographic move I ever made. This camera is exceptional. Unless you are a 100% professional you will never need anything else. Thank you Nikon.

A great product

By D7000, a great upgrade for DX users from St. Louis on 04/14/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I recently purchased a D7000 to act as back up camera to my D3x and to replace my old and trusty D2x. The D3x can be as heavy a camera as I can carry around for more than 2 or 3 hours, so the light weight of the D7000 was a welcome addition to my camera bag. I have been very happy with the high ios performance of the camera, getting very good results up to 1600 and acceptable results at 3200. I've been using it mostly with a 14-24 and 16-35 and getting great results. I know some of the on line forums have been reporting sharpness issues with the 16-35, but that has not been my experience. I've also printed some of the D7000 files to 15x22 and they look great, requiring very little Photoshop Magic. This camera is a great DX camera and a terrific backup to anyone with a FX system.

Made the upgrade from a Nikon D40X. Like others, I waiting a long time for the D90 replacement. This is an excellent camera and all of the upgrades are fantastic. If you are considering the D3100 I would highly recommend that you go for the D7000. Read all the professional reviews you want...you will be extremely satisfied with the D7000. I've attached a few sample pics that will give you an idea of how great this camera is.

Quick, easy to use, ...

By pbaker1365 from Sorrento, B.C. on 04/14/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Quick, easy to use, bright viewfinder and just generally feels "right". Simply the nicest digital camera I have ever used. The ONLY complaint I have is the feel of the shutter release. It is very light and there isn't enough sensation or feedback. A feature I especially like is the ability to store user settings such that you can essentially set it up to be like two cameras and switch back and forth instantly.

Well placed controls, wide array of menus.

By JB from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA on 04/14/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Nikon D7000 is designed for a serious photographer. The "feel" of the camera, the 100% viewfinder and well placed controls are all important to me. The wide array of menu options allows you to create the camera you want. My best suggestion... study the instruction book to get the most out of this amazing photographic tool.

Lots of hot pixels

By Mike from Undisclosed on 04/10/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I just got a D7000 April 4th 2011. Returned it the next day because of hot pixels and got a new one. It has hot pixels as well. Long exposure on my Nikon D7000 ISO 100 has lots and lots of hot pixels. Anything over a 4 second exposure and they all come out of nowhere. They all show up in the same place at 4 seconds and longer. I estimate at least 100 hot pixels in a frame when shooting over 4 seconds. Standard shooting is fine although I had two hot pixels permanently in the frame but they went away after two days. I am very disappointed and even a little heart broken as this is otherwise and awesome camera. But as they say...only as strong as the weakest link. And lots of hot pixels are a very weak link. With long exposure NR on this is not a problem. But when shooting twilight shots with a blue hour sky I dont really go over 8 second exposures and these little guys pop up all over the sky. I have had hot pixel repairs on all my nikons, the D40, D90 and then returned my first D7000 for hot pixels now Im on my second one with hot pixels, in just one week. I hope Nikon addresses this issue and works with both vendors, retailers, and customers to provide a good and defective free product. Here are some cropped images with hot pixels examples. Some are ISO 100 some are ISO 1600. They appear shot after shot in the same location at different ISO's. I know this is a long rant but I want o inform potential buyers of my misfortune and say if you do buy it find a place with easy returns in case you have the same problems.

Video Feature not that good!!!

By ernie71 from Tamarac, Florida on 04/02/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I been a loyal customer of Nikon since I got my first N60, then I got the D200 whish I update for this D7000. One of the reasons was the Video Option with full auto focus Dont waste your money and make the same mistake that I did like the old saying... Cameras are for PICTURES not Video if you expect to take videos the 1st problem is files are saved in a MOV so for your TV, Bluray, etc play this video you need MPEG. Nikon do not offer you a software to do this conversion, so you going to be stuck with a 3rd party software (more $ to invest) that some times voice and video do not synchronize. BIG disappointment. My advices if you need Video get a VIDEO Camcorder not a Camera. Ill try to return and exchange this for a better one

Awesome Camera.

By Cobra064 from California on 03/19/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great camera. Menu's are very similar to other models which make any learning curve minimal. It's got a great feel to it. Even the sound of the shutter sounds solid. Dual memory cards is great especially since you can make the RAW files go on one card while having the JPG go on the other. I miss the tilt screen that the D5000 has. I wish it had more selections for JPG compression and sizes. It would be nice to see 320x240, 640x480 jpg and other sizes. Having these sizes would be helpful if these pictures are for simple email / online viewing while retaining the RAW full size photo. I also miss the capability to change settings while in the 'info' view screen like in the D5000. That was a great way to change settings quickly.

Yes. It's that good

By Hiwayman from San Francisco, CA on 03/14/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had my camera since Christmas. I read dozens of reviews before purchasing it. Many of the reviews were full of warnings about soft focus and hot pixels. Many, many more of the reviews were just plain over the top with effusive compliments about the camera. I decided to take the chance, knowing I could return the camera if it was as bad as some said it was. I can say, without reservation, that this camera is amazingly good. It's a pro-sumer camera, meaning that it's at the top of the consumer line but not quite a pro camera, but I have shown some pictures I've taken to so pro photographer friends of mine, and they are impressed (not with the composition, which is amateurish, but with the technical quality of the photos). It did take a while for me to get the hang of the camera. It is not simple to use (the owner's manual is well over 300 pages long), but learning how to use it has been a labor of increasing love. I have taken pictures that are tack sharp, even hand-held (thanks in part to the VR technology in some of my lenses). This thing is really, really good. The menus are mostly intuitive (some functions and adjustments are buried in sub-menus, though). There is a "?" button which can help you when you find a menu title you can't remember what the function is. Even the buttons and knobs can be reassigned, and the way they function changed. If there is a set of menu items you use regularly (ISO settings, or white balance settings for instance) you can select them to show up in an area called "My Menu". This allows easy access to things you use all the time. The camera has on-board photo editing and special effects, and if your tastes run differently than the default exposure, flash EV, WB, etc., etc, most of it can be adjusted for new defaults. I personally think the camera has a tendency to over expose slightly on AUTO, and isn't quite as colorful as I'd like. Easily adjusted. But the ISO can be pushed to rediculous levels (above 25K), and with a good, fast lens you can take some amazing shots without a flash. I have taken shots up to ISO6400 with no apparent increase in noise (you can turn on functions that clean up noise, if you like, as well). Speaking of AUTO, if that's all you shoot in, DON'T buy this camera. Go get a good point-and-shoot, or a 3100 for about 1/2 the price (it uses the same lenses). This camera is pretty expensive for mere mortals, and it would be a waste of your money if you aren't going to use the thing to its full capability, which far exceeds simple P&S. I can honestly say that I have the sensibilities of Ansel Adams, but the trigger finger of Aunt Mildred (I have great aspirations). This camera absolutely makes me a better photographer, and teaches me something new each time I use it. If you are an amateur or something a little better, you will LOVE this camera, and you can be sure it will be a camera you will use for years to come. Quit sitting there reading this. Get off your behind and go buy one!!

Love this camera!

By Randall from Pendleton, IN on 03/10/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I did quite a bit of research on this camera before I decided to drop the amount of money required to get it. It is not a cheap camera by any means, but I do NOT regret my purchase at all! It does everything I ask of it and more. I have seen several reviews complaining about the auto-focusing during video recording. While I have heard the motor trying to focus during the video and the video will go blurry during this time for a second I really don't care. If you want to buy this camera for the HD video then I would urge you to think again. The fact that it takes HD video did not even play a part in my decision to buy it. I wanted it strictly for its capabilities as a DSLR. If I wanted a video camera I would have bought a video camera! The pictures that it produces are absolutely stunning! I would recommend this camera any day of the week!

Advanced Technology, Professional at consumer pric

By NikUser from Lawrenceville, NJ on 02/17/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this camera for only a month, but I am impressed and glad I upgraded. It is a substantial camera, yet quite a bit less than the fully professional ones. The pictures are clear and bright and I am very happy with this product. I got to handle this product at one of the Nikon School events, which I highly recommend to all shooters.

Great, but has some flaws.

By CuritibaBrasil from Curitiba - Brazil on 02/03/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Don't get me wrong, this is by far the best camera I've ever had - but it could be better. Instead of saying all the goodies that you already know, I'll mention the flaws that bother me. 1. The memory buffer is too small. What's the sense of having 6fps if the memory buffer can only handle a couple of seconds? 2. Doesn't focus well under extremely low light. Although the D7000 takes the best pictures under low light I've ever experienced, my D5000 focused considerably better under extremely low light. 3. Back display doesn't turn on automatically. There should be an option to turn it on automatically (as the D5000 does), because the top LCD display is really small. 4. Back display is great, but non-swiveling. Again, something the D5000 had, and that could be really appreciated with the D7000's great live view mode. I find the small memory buffer and the poor autofocus under low light very serious flaws in a camera of this price and class. But my D5000 was better all the four mentioned items, for less than half the price. Otherwise, the D7000 is probably the best dSLR camera at this moment, and that includes some higher (and more expensive) models. It's extremely fast, silent, precise, well built, the only 100% view pentaprism in it's class, built-in focusing motor for AF lens, controls 3 channels of Nikon CLS wireless flashes, and the list of refinements really goes on. I hope Nikon eventually considers a D7000 "S" (as they did with the 300 and 3 models), an upgraded model with a larger memory buffer and better autofocus under low light. Would it be too much to ask for a swivelling display like the D5000's?

Excellent, great handling photographic tool

By vraptorr from ohio on 02/03/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Unfortunately, due to supply issues; I was forced to purchase the body with the 18-105 lens which is a usless addition to my collection of lenses. Aside from that and the fact that is uses SDHC cards that seem to have a significantly slower write speed than compact flash cards like theSandisk Extreeme IV, I am pleased with the perormance of the camera. Recently, I shot my grandkids sledding. The autofocus with my 17 - 50 F2.8 lens was very good. The overall fell of the body,specially with the MBD-11 is great, none of the cheap plastic lly feel that I have noticed from some other brands. Like the previous Nikon DSLRs that I have owned, the body seems to be made for my hands. Image quality is fantastic. High speed frame rate is almost as good a my more expensive D300 and the smaller size and lighter weight make it easier to carry for an extended period. I can see body spending a lot of time attached to my 70-200 2.8, my 300 2.8. or my 500 4.5 for wild life photography and sport cars . I would recomend this body to anyone who is interested in becoming a serious action shooter or already is one. LOVE IT

ProSumer Flagship

By divotz from Undisclosed on 01/28/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The D7K has outstanding features and capabilities. Truly a camera for both the avid photographer who demands a lot from their equipment and the photographer looking to take their game to the next level. The D7K has a rugged body and stylish controls. I love the flip-switch to enter live-view shooting mode with a button in the center, adorned with a red dot, to start or stop video recording as well as photographing - this is extremely convenient. The Nikon D7K is a pleasure to use, and it carries on the tradition of the company's very impressive advanced mid-range DSLRs. If you have Nikon glass and are ready to upgrade, you won't regret it.

Returned it

By AJ from Virginia on 01/28/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

After being accustomed to the size and feel of the FA, F100 and D200, which I have owned and enjoyed for many years, the body of the D7000 felt too small and unbalanced with longer lenses. I returned it and will wait for the much anticipated D400.

Disappointed

By lovespics from trumbull, ct on 01/27/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have had a lot of autofocus issues with this camera. Backfocuses alot,hesitates to take a picture and then the moment is lost, has 39 autofocus points but doesn't seem to find them. If i take a group picture there is always someone blurry or not crisp. It doesn't always take continuous photos when in continuous mode, starting to find that the lens has to be at a very particular focus point for it to do this (and when it does it is good). Overall I don't find the pictures to be crisp and sharp. Also had trouble getting camera to fire when I was in a lower light church setting. Would not focus at all on the subjects I wanted.Used the 18-105 kit lens and would only focus for close up (18 or so). Had a D80 and did not have these autofocus issues so I was expecting grand things from this and have not had them yet. The lens does not always stay locked tight, sometimes have to retighted to get a picture...this should not happen! Have called several camera stores and all claim they haven't heard of this. I think I have a lemon and would love to have a replacement. I have not tried other features on the camera because I have been so disappointed. On the positive the features available and body of the camera are wonderful!

Wonky AF. Only a god ...

By disappointed from it doesn't matter on 01/05/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Wonky AF. Only a god knows where this thing is gonna focus, even in single point mode. If it does focus on target, it is reasonably sharp. Colours and contrast are a bit oversaturated in Std mode, more accurate in Neutral mode. A bit cramped feeling compared to a D200 even with the grip attached. Otherwise it is an ok camera

Excellent features

By kubbfan61 from San Diego, CA on 11/17/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The new Nikon D7000 is fantastic. I was afraid all the "hype" would be overkill, but I have found this camera to live up to ALL the expectations. From the metal structure, to the glass pentaprism optical viewfinder giving 100% frame coverage...I just can't say enought about this camera. When I pick it up, it feels right. Fits comfortably in my hands, with a real rubber grip this camera feels great. Something that I would only have expected in the pro FX models. I am very pleased at the image results. Pictures are sharp and crisp. Details are great. Colors are vibrant. The buttons are placed with the user in mind. This is a great step up from the D90. I highly recommmend this camera. I know I sound like some sales rep for Nikon...but I was very pleasantly suprised at this camera. I did not expect it to live up to all the talk. But, within 24 hours of use my mind was completely changed. I LOVE IT!!! I can't say enough. Great job, Nikon!!!!

FF in a DX skin

By Damon from Tahuya, WA on 11/11/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This latest release by Nikon shows years of development right off the bat. Smart control positions, improved design and feel, more rugged and weight-balanced, superior images even at ISO ranges that were normally very noisy; this camera is the be-all and end-all of the DX format DSLR.

It's like a hybrid of D90 & D300S

By Tommy from Pearland, TX on 11/10/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just like I said, a hybrid DSLR of D90 & D300S. Combined both features and even better. Very fast shooting camera. I really like the User 1 and User 2 function on the dial. Moreover, the super nice bonus is the dual SDHC slots. Now, I wish Nikon would ship the MB-D11 battery grip and the EN-EL15 sooner. I would recommend this to any DSLR shooters that just started shooting DSLR or even the Pros would love this camera. A sample a the picture taken with D7000, SOOC.

Incredible imaging technology

By madecov from Houston, Texas on 11/10/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Recently I had become less than pleased with the direction that my chosen system had taken. I decided after some research to switch to Nikon. When the D7000 was announced I knew it just about everything I wanted in a camera. Once I purchased one and got into the camera I was amazed by the features, functions and abilities of the camera. The learning curve is fairly straight forward. Images from this camera are nothing short of astounding. jpg images are really nice right out of the camera. The focus and metering are the best I have ever seen from any camera. The auto white balance gets things right more often than not even under mixed lighting. My old system always needed a custom white balance. It will take me many years to outgrow this camera

D7000 DSLR is an Amazing Camera!

By Mike in AZ from Arizona on 11/10/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

For several months I had been planning to upgrade from my Nikon D70 DSLR to a new DSLR. When Nikon announced the D7000 I knew that I had found my dream camera, at least on paper. When I received the D7000 a week after it started shipping in mid-October, I was quickly thrilled to find that it met all my expectations and even exceeded many of them. I use the D7000 for both general photography and for astrophotography with my 8" telescope. The high ISO settings of 2000, 6400, 12800, and even 25600 have yielded some amazing astrophotos. I hope I will soon receive the extra battery and the AC adapter connection cable that I ordered at the same time as the D7000. But other than those being delayed, I have been totally impressed with the D7000. Is there anything I don't like? Yes, there is. That would be the use of the SD card format. Compared to the CompactFlash card used on the D70, the SD cards seem flimsy and the metal contacts are exposed to dirt and skin oil. But that is really a matter of choice, and other than that, the D7000 is a camera that Nikon should be proud of. I know I'm a proud D7000 owner!

Had to return it...

By returned it from Montana on 10/30/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I had to return mine due to burned out red, green and blue pixels in the video mode. No matter how nice the camera is, it isn't successful as a camera with video, without the video - one really can't have red spots on Sally's face unless she has smallpox, eh? Before you buy and keep your cameras, I suggest you run a simple test of your video. Go to Live Mode and Set the ISO to 1000 and the shutter to 100 and put a lens cap on and take some video. It should be all black. If it isn't. Take off the cap and open the shoot. The spots (colored pixels) will be on your video. It only takes one pixel a in inopportune place to ruin a picture. Unless you do something about this, check it out and if it happens to your camera, and don't return it, it won't get corrected. Black should be black. Color should be recorded as the right color, not with bad pixels over them.

In a word: Excellent

By Newcomer from Madison, AL on 10/25/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am admittedly a newcomer to the DSLR. I had a D2H for a few months, and have used a D3 several times, but this is the first DSLR of my own. I do NOT feel intimidated by the D7000. It is smaller in the hand than the D2/D3, but has a SOLID feel and nice weight that doesn't tire you out. The menus and options, while plentiful, are intuitive and easy to manipulate. I have captured some great photos using Auto and Scene modes, and also been able to flip to Manual mode and manipulate the shots to get exactly what I want. One selling point that really proved to be a wise "test" for a new camera is that my wife, a point-and-shoot veteran but DSLR newcomer, can pick it up, turn it on and literally point and shoot and capture STELLAR images in Auto and Scene modes. Not too many DSLR's can offer that kind of diversity with relatively little user input. I LOVE it and will only like it better as I become more familiar with all the settings and options. The ONLY drawback, and it is a relatively minor one, is battery life. It's NOT terrible by any means, but I feel it could be better. Once I am able to buy a couple of spares, this will not matter.

Excellent beginner or semi pro camera

By Rabid_Clam from Virginia on 09/19/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This much awaited for successor to the D90 has earned deep respect already! The rugged sealed body is a much needed upgrade as is the added megapixel image size. The 150,000 cycle adds longevity to an already pro style body construction. WIth 39 well distributed focus points every photo will be exactly as planned. Adding a second memory card will help insure nothing gets lost and gives the ability to record in several formats instantly and seperately or perform instant back up. The movie feature is improved allowing stereo sound capabilities and also greatly improved lens continous focusing with an AF type lens, a much needed attribute. The D90 was probably the best camera of its class ever built to date but this D7000 adds everything else that ever could be asked for by greatly improving every aspect of every setting and option. It remains perfect for the total amature to the seasoned pro rendering the best photos possible. Very reasonably priced this unit is within the grasp of everyone of any skill and need level. I can find no negatives to offer which is unusual for me to say.
