Nikon D7000 Review

The Nikon D7000 is a 16.2-megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR) announced by Nikon  September 2010. At the time of announcement, it replaced the outdated D300/D300s & D90.

And I have one. In fact one in use in my camera bag as of now, plus one as a spare (in case of breakage/loss and high costs to repair). 

My first Nikon D7000 with a lens bundle at the time came at a price of around GBP £2000 but I've seen body + lenses new as at time of writing for around £500. In my opinion - buy new not used rather than taking your chances, this still is  a great camera and can now be picked up at a sensible price point 


Tech stuff
Full 1080p HD video capture, dual memory card slots, 39 auto-focus points, a new colour-sensitive meter, a near 100% viewfinder, and in-camera editing round up just a few of the extra features found in the Nikon D7000. I'm not going to list line after line of spec tables, there's plenty of info out there 


Pros
I've always found it good at night, fast for sports, easy to handle, all the buttons in the right place, not too heavy

Cons
The menu did (at first) put a strain on me(!) but there's plenty of shortcuts to discover

Images
Here's a selection of images taken with the D7000, the first was a long exposure (on a tripod) at night over looking this pool in Morocco. The next 2 taken in Cinque Terre, Italy
