The EXPEED 2 image-processing engine combined with a 14-bit Analog / Digital conversion brings a new level of even tonal gradations while managing color, contrast, exposure, and noise resulting in brilliant image quality. EXPEED 2 also manages the D7000’s speedy 50-millisecond shutter response, blazing AF speed and rapid six frame-per-second (fps) burst speed for up to 100 images.Building upon the popular D90 D-SLR, the Nikon D7000 captures breathtaking full 1080p HD movies with full-time autofocus and manual exposure control. To keep critical HD focus, users can choose to engage a variety of AF functions, including face priority to track up to 35 human faces, subject-tracking and normal or wide-area autofocus.The D7000 D-SLR contains many features that empower the user with creative freedom including the ability to process RAW images directly in the camera, and add in special effects using the retouch menu. Among the many editing options are color filters, distortion control for a fisheye effect, perspective control for a miniature effect, or a new color sketch filter that creates a sketch-styled image. As always, manipulated images are saved as copies while the original is retained.Features:High Resolution 16.2 MP DX-format CMOS sensor for large prints and tight croppingHigh Speed 6 frames per second continuous shooting up to 100 shots captures the most fleeting actionGround-breaking 2,016-pixel RGB (3D Color Matrix) sensor delivers more accurate control of light metering and optimizes the Scene Recognition System for exposure, white balance, focus tracking and iTTL flash controlEXPEED 2 image processing and 14-bit A/D Conversion provides smooth tones, rich colors, and fast camera performanceLarge Bright Glass Pentaprism Optical Viewfinder with approx. 100% frame coverage and approx. 0.94x magnificationTwin SD Card Slots with SD, SDHC, SDXC memory card compatibility gives you options to keep on shooting or separate your NEF (RAW), JPEG and movie filesBuilt-in Speedlight flash with i-TTL and Wireless Commander support so you can light your subjects any way you likeOptional MB-D11 multi-power pack further expands your shooting time and battery choices while adding a vertical shutter-release and control dials to your cameraTwo User Definable Settings (U1, U2) right on the Mode Selector Dial let you store most camera settings so you can go back to them at anytime without the need for further adjustments or menu settingsPicture Control lets you choose from Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, or Landscape to apply a personal look and feel to your picturesVirtual Horizon Graphic IndicatorBreathtaking Full 1080p HD Movies with Full Time Autofocus and external stereo microphone jack to record cinematic-quality movies up to 20 minutes all enhanced by NIKKOR interchangeable lens quality and versatilityDynamic ISO range from 100 to 6400 expandable to 25,600 (Hi2) lets you shoot in near darkness or slow down the actionCustomizable 39 point AF System includes nine center cross-type sensors that operate with every AF NIKKOR lens so you can focus on making great imagesCompact but durable with magnesium-alloy top and rear covers, superior weather and dust seals and a 150,000 cycle-rated shutter system providing reliable operation3 Inch, 921,000-dot Super-Density LCD Monitor with 170 degree viewing delivers bright, crisp image playback, and precise Live View and Movie shootingFast Start-Up time of 0.13 sec and Short 50ms Shutter Lag so your camera’s ready to go when you areCompact EN-EL15 Battery lets you shoot over 850 shotsBuilt-in HDMI Connection lets you connect your camera right to your HDTV and playback with most HDTV remote controlsActive D-Lighting restores picture-enhancing detail in shadows and highlightsVersatile Scene Modes lets you choose from Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close-up or Night Portrait for stunning results in otherwise challenging conditionsIncludes:D7000 DSLR BodyAF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lensEN-EL15 Rechargeable Li-ion BatteryMH-25 QuickChargerDK-5 Eyepiece CapDK-21 Rubber EyecupUC-E4 USB CableEG-D2 Audio Video CableAN-DC1 Camera StrapBM-11 LCD Monitor CoverBF-1B Body CapBS-1 Accessory Shoe CoverViewNX 2 CD-ROM

Review 1 for Nikon D7000 16.2MP DSLR with 18-105 VR Lens
PostedJuly 11, 2011
from Chapel Hill, NC
My D7000 from Calumet has performed really great so far. My only problem was the internal means of changing the AF-S & AF-C, was difficult to adjust to coming from the D200 and then D300. In time I hope to master the controls...
Pros: Excellent Image Quality, Great for Video, Great Battery Life, Quick Start-up Time, Good Low-Light Performance
