Stunning image details
16.2-megapixel CMOS sensor
you want to make large prints or crop tightly in an image, the D7000
delivers the resolution you need. At its heart is a DX-format CMOS image
sensor with 16.2 effective megapixels, optimally engineered to gather
more quality light through sharp NIKKOR lenses. Coupled with 14-bit A/D
conversion (12-bit selectable), the D7000 produces stunning images that
are richer in tone and detail than previously possible in DX format.
A new era of movie capture
Breathtaking Full HD 1080p D-Movies
D7000 is equipped to help you create impressive cinematic masterpieces
with Full HD 1080p and movie editing functions for exceptional scene
reproduction and quality. In addition to smooth video, the camera can
compensate for distortion and other image-degrading problems. Aside from
a built-in monaural microphone, the D7000 incorporates an external mic
jack for high-quality stereo sound recording options.
6 frames per second continuous shooting
farewell to missed opportunities. The D7000 incorporates a new driving
mechanism to conduct its remarkably fast and precise mirror movements,
giving you an approx. 0.052 second release time lag and an approx. 0.13
second start-up time. What’s more, you can continuously shoot at approx.
6 frames per second at both 14-bit and 12-bit A/D conversion for RAW
Crisp photos in any light
Wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 6400
100 to 6400 has now become standard with the D7000, enabling you to
handle a wider range of lighting situations: from the bright and sunny
outdoors to low-lit evenings and interiors. Nikon’s renowned noise
reduction technology has been upgraded even further. Throughout the
range, the D7000 delivers sharp images with minimized color noise.
Quality, high-ISO performance can also enhance your movie shooting,
allowing you to capture the mood of a scene using only available light.
More accurate control
Ground-breaking 2,016-pixel RGB sensor
the incredibly accurate 2,016-pixel RGB sensor reads a scene's lighting
information, the D7000 cross-references what it sees with imaging data
from a large selection of real-world shooting situations. This way, the
renowned 3D Color Matrix Metering II delivers exposure results that are
faithful to how you see light and shadow interplay, even in difficult
lighting situations. This intelligent metering technique also delivers
exceptionally accurate i-TTL flash exposures, and it all happens within
milliseconds for both speed and precision.
Powerful, wide-area coverage
Customizable 39-point AF System
D7000's strategically positioned 39 AF points cover a significantly
wide area of the frame, giving you flexible compositional possibilities.
The 9 AF points in the center utilize powerful cross-type
sensors—especially useful when you need tack sharp focus, such as with
portraits and macro work. The D7000 offers a variety of AF area modes,
including Dynamic-area AF using 9, 21 or 39 points. Utilizing Nikon's
Scene Recognition System, Auto-area AF properly judges the main subject
within 39 AF points and focuses on it.
Improved image quality and speed
newest generation image processing engine, EXPEED 2, is capable of
performing multiple tasks with more speed and power. Expect smoother
tonal gradations, even in difficult shadows and highlights, for a
greater sense of depth in your images.
Rugged and protected
a top and rear cover of durable magnesium alloy, the D7000 is ready for
the outdoors. Nikon engineers paid meticulous attention to where
exterior parts join by employing durable sealing against moisture and
dust. The compact body has also undergone severe environmental tests to
prove its rugged reliability.
100% frame coverage
approximately 100% frame coverage in the viewfinder, what you see is
exactly what you capture. The specially coated glass pentagonal prism
and precision-crafted finder screen offer not only a bright viewfinder
image, but also enable you to easily confirm when a subject is in focus.
Rich image previewing
D7000 features an expansive 3-inch VGA LCD. Its approx. 921k-dot
resolution assures clear, detailed display of images, which proves
invaluable when confirming focus or assessing image sharpness.
