Inspired performance in a size that keeps you shooting.

Amazing photography isn’t only about what you shoot and how you shoot it, it’s also about what you shoot it with. The high resolution, multi-featured Nikon D7000 gives you 16.2 megapixels of vividly detailed images, a more sensitive DX-format CMOS sensor that delivers high ISO with low noise, plus various automatic and customizable settings to take your pictures and videos from great to gorgeous. Shoot up to 6 fps or record every second of the action with full HD 1080p D-Movies with Nikon’s advanced autofocus system to impress and inspire.

Stunning image details

16.2-megapixel CMOS sensor

Whether 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

The 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.

Remarkably responsive

6 frames per second continuous shooting

Say 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 shooting.

Crisp photos in any light

Wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 6400

ISO 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

After 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

The 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

The 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

With 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

With 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

The 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.

Big 5+ for me This is my first nikon, I've been using canon before this and I'm glad I chose this camera! It focuses amazing it's very versatile and the fact that it is weather sealing is great since I'm a really big out doors type of person! It performs great at low light situations just a little bit grainy after 3200 ISO but the image is still amazingly sharp! I recommend this camera for beginners and starting photographers ! March 30, 2014
Excellent camera. 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. March 30, 2014
Still the best DX camera to date 2014 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. March 18, 2014
Very powerful camera I love this camera. It takes fantastic photographs as well as great videos. It feels substantial in your hands and is very easy to use. February 24, 2014
Superb Excellent camera. More features than D 90. 100% satisfied. Highly recommend this product. February 11, 2014

Answer: 
a white paper will do the trick
for the green cast you can easily choose fluorescent in white balance menu. and note if you use a remote flash to cover it with a green gell cover other wise you may find your picture tone mostly reddish

Answer: 
White balance is applied to both RAW and JPG files.....just to make sure I tested it, but you will see a slight variation between the two. However, there are many settings such as saturation, sharpening, D-Lighting, etc... that are not applied to RAW files....hence why they are RAW.....they contain the original raw data to be manipulated in post processing.
For more information, see the discussion thread on Digital Photography School

Answer: 
Adjusting for white balance and selecting a picture control be will be reflected in both the jpg and RAW files.

But in the case of jpg file, you won't be able to change this once it is saved.
If you save the picture in RAW file, You will sitll be able to change the photo white balance and the picture control
setting in with software which is able to edit Nikon Raw (eg. ViewNX,Capture NX)

Answer: 
My understanding from what I have researched is that as CPU changes are implemented in new products that there is no guarantee that third party products will continue to work. I realize there are a lot of great third party products out there, but that is always a potential risk. Unfortunately he will probably just have to use manual focus.
I always see many discussions on lens sharpness, compatability, etc.... and the best thing I can recommend is to rent it and decide for yourself. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
is it "hunting" for focus (meaning it tries to lock on to a subject but fails) or it's not moving at all? for AF to work you have to switch AF to ON on the lens AND on the body as well.

Answer: 
In RAW it's 14 Bits/channel meaning the 4 color-blocks making up a pixel each individually have 16,384 possible intensities. 2 greens, a blue, and a red means 16384 * 16384 * 16384 * 2 = 8.8 trillion colors per pixel with 16384 levels of intensity between black and white if you just want straight range. Even without Active-D Lighting, the range is pretty high. But an actual HDR effect is not built in; you can get a pretty good HDR from a single RAW but the camera won't do it for you.

Answer: 
Did you really mean D700? This forum is for D7000's. Your camera should have come with paperwork which indicated if it was covered with a warranty. Not all cameras are refurbished at Nikon, so you have to find out who refurbished it, then talk to that company, if you don't have paperwork. I can't speak to extended warranties, but in general terms extended warranties are usually only available at the time of purchase. If your camera was refurbished by Nikon, give them a call.

Camera settings. Which video settings do you recommend? Do video settings over ride photo settings ISO, aperture and exposure? What microphone or type of mic do you recommend? Can you recommend an external monitor or a hood that will let me view the camera monitor in bright day lite--it washes out. I have a Sony stereo mic that works and built a bracket to hold it. I have some issues with wind noise. The built in camera mic picks up servo noise and is almost useless. My bracket has a handle to stabilize the camera but I still have camera shake and it's easy to put camera out of focus on continuous servo . It is also difficult to zoom in and out and get a stable picture. I assume that you have to have the camera on a tripod to get stable video pictures.
I really enjoy the D7000 because it's picture taking capabilities and additional features. It is a large step up from my D80 which is a great camera. Adding video to my still shots in slide shows and on our website is a great feature.

Answer: 
Those questions are hard to answer, since you didn't say what kind of videos you're shooting. Settings for videos for fast-moving objects are different than those for other types. In regard to the question about overrides, the answer is yes, but the camera is sophisticated. The things you set in video mode do not overwrite the still shot settings. Each mode has its own settings. The other responder answered the rest of your questions. The thing to remember about the D7000 is that its primary function is still pictures. The video mode is an added bonus, so the camera's capabilities are focused on still shots. If you surf the web, you can find books on how to shoot videos with DLSRs (well, sections of books, anyway). A book I just bought, which is REALLY good for someone who is more than a beginning photographer, but not a pro, is David Busch's book about the D7000. There's a good-sized section on how to use the video mode.

Answer: 
you need: tripods (the sturdier the better), either good prime lenses or a constant-bright zoom in the lower and higher focus lengths; if you can have lenses with VR, good, since video turns on VR as well. external mic: use something that has a windstopper (like a rode videomic with a deadkitten muffler). use any external HDMI field monitor or an LCDVF (a loupe essentially). don't use autofocus (it's useless), get ready to rack focus manually (you may want to get a 15mm rod kit with a follow focus on it, if you're serious about video).

Send it to a Nikon authorized repair facility, or be very careful if you do it yourself. The built in cleaning system is not always the best solution.

Answer: 
The D7000 has an automatic sensor cleaner that operates each time you use the camera. Under normal circumstances you should not have to clean the sensor yourself. Check your user manual pages 284 and 285 to find out how to set personal preferences.

Answer: 
You didn't really give enough information about what is not working. If you take several pictures of the same subject in the same light, does the unit flash or not flash consistently, or is the flash intermittent, even if no conditions have changed? Remember that both the flash and the camera take light readings as you press the button, and adjust the flash based upon those readings. How do you have your camera and flash set up? What mode is the camera in (AUTO, P, A, S, M). What mode is the flash in?

However, I seem to remember if you have the camera on "AUTO" mode, and there is enough light for the photo, the flash will not operate. This is not a malfunction. Try putting the camera in P or some other mode. Also, sometimes the flash is very brief.....And if you take a series of shots in quick succession, or the batteries are low in the flash, the flash may not have had time to recycle and for the next flash shot.

Answer: 
Nikon cameras are manufactured in several places around the world. Look at the bottom of your camera body. It says the place of manufacture there. Mine was built in Indonesia. It works perfectly well, as you would expect a Nikon to operate. Remember, Nikon doesn't just hand off to factories. They carefully watch the quality and processes to assure that the equipment produced anywhere in the world meet their standards for that particular piece of equipment. Your warranty would be different between pieces of equipment manufactured in various places if Nikon didn't have complete confidence in their manufacturing facilities.

Answer: 
It should not be an issue. Based on this link: http://nikonasia-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6938/~/nikon-d7000-firmware-ver-1.01-download-(windows)

Windows 2000 is supported. You may need the firmware upgrade.

However, we find it much faster and more convenient to use the SD port on our PC, and just take the card out of the camera. If this is an older PC that you don't have an SD port on, you can probably buy one very cheap.

Answer: 
It is likely that your D7000 is too new for Windows 2000. Unlike newer OS's that will recognize and configure themselves for new equipment, Windows 2000 generally requires that you have software you can load which will allow the connection. It is unlikely that this software exists, since Windows 2000 is no longer supported by Microsoft, and Nikon probably doesn't write software for unsupported OSs. An alternative to getting your photos loaded would be to buy a card reader (they run anywhere from $10.00 to $20.00 USD). Plug that into your PC's USB port with the cards from the D7000 plugged into it. This MAY work (no guarantees). The best thing to do would be to upgrade to at least Windows XP or higher.

Answer: 
good news: apart from some very exotic nikon lenses (old fisheyes that protrude in the back so much they'd clash with the mirror) you can use ALL f-mount lenses with the d7000. the ones designated AF will autofocus with the body focus motor, the AF-S ones have their own focus motors, and AI lenses have no AF at all. light metering (and thus A (and possibly S and P) modes will become usable, not only M) is possible even with non-CPU (AI, AI-S) lenses, you just have to "register" such lenses in the Non-CPU Lens Data menu option.

Answer: 
If you buy the camera from Nikon, the price is for the body only. Some vendors offer "kits", which will include compatible lenses, for additional costs. Your question about which lenses are compatible has a lot of answers, but the best way to answer it is to say that any lens from Nikon that has the Nikkor "DX" designation will be compatible. There are other compatible lenses, both from Nikon and from other manufacturers, but a DX lens is specifically intended for DX cameras (the D7000 is a DX camera). If you are just getting into DLSRs a good lens to start with might be the AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G VR. Though it is a "kit" lens, it is a good "do all" lens with pretty good glass and a middle of the road zoom focal length that will let you experiment with various types of photography until you decide what you are interested in. Once you've decided, then you can spend the big bucks on lenses that are best suited for your area of interest. You will get a lot of advice as to which lenses to buy, so read reviews and make your own decisions based on what you know you like to take pictures of.

You camera has Single Point AF (Auto Focus) and Focus Point Selection.

Answer: 
Press the Focus Mode Selector button (this is the button to the lower right of the lens on the camera body as viewed from the front). This button is part of the lever which switches the camera from AF to M. Hold this button down while spinning the sub-command wheel (just below the shutter button, on the top left of the front of the camera when viewed from the front). This will change the number of focal points from 39 through a series of lesser configurations until you reach a single focus point. If you watch the LCD screen on top of the camera as you do this, you will see the number of focus points change until you get what you want.

Answer: 
Class 10 - 8gb are the most reasonable, fastest and biggest storage capacity available. Lexar makes great ones and very reasonable in price. You certainly can tether the camera to your laptop. Bigger faster is better but I would think a minimum would be the Core I3 series laptop with minimum 4G ram and a 500gb hardrive.

Answer: 
Comparing storage between a D7000 and a D5100 is apples and oranges. The D7000 has TWO data slots that can be configured in various ways for your personal needs. The D5100 has only one data card slot. So, logically, for any card type or size, the storage capacity for a D7000 would be twice that of the D5100, if you configured the D7000 that way. According to the D7000 Owner's Manual, the largest capacity card the camera can use is a 64GB card, times two for two cards, which means you'd have a total capacity of 128GB. Of course the class you'd want to get is as high as possible (Class 10). If you're wondering if the cards can accept real time video at lower classes, I have used Class 6 for videos with no problems. As far as connecting your camera to a PC/Mac to have live movie images viewable there in real time, you'll have to check with Nikon. I am not aware of software from Nikon that can do this (but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist). There IS camera control software, but I am not familiar with what it can or can't do.

Answer: 
"Refurbished" means that a product was returned to Nikon (or another company), or used as a demo unit, and then brought back to factory specifications (like new). Each product has a serial number, so it can only legally be sold as new one time. If it has been refurbished, then it must be sold as such. Refurbished products work just like new, but you might expect a small mar or scratch here and there that does not affect the performance of the product. I believe the Nikon warranty on refurbished equipment is usually 3 months, but it can vary. If the product is refurbished by someone other than Nikon, you would have to check with that company for their warranty policy, and understand that if something goes wrong with the device during that warranty period, that company, not Nikon, would cover repairs or compensation.
