Fast, refined, and flat-out amazing, that's Nikon's D7000 in a nutshell. This capable SLR delivers amazing, detail-rich photos and vivid HD movies with the ease of a top-end professional model, but at a fraction of the size and cost. You get precise, high-speed autofocus and spot-on exposures thanks to Nikon's newly developed wide-area AF system and advanced metering sensor. Critical shooting controls are strategically placed right at your fingertips for smooth, intuitive operation. The cam's lightweight, magnesium alloy body and grippy, rubberized surfaces make it a pleasure to use and hold, whether you're taking pictures at a marathon family reunion, capturing weddings and sports events, or hiking in the great outdoors. The included Nikon VR II image-stabilizing long zoom lens replaces a bag full of lenses with its long zoom range, excellent optics and lightweight form factor.
Stunning 16.2-megapixel image details
The D7000's powerful, all-new image sensor provides beautiful high-resolution photos you can crop heavily and still use to make big, crisp prints. Advanced CMOS technology delivers vibrant images with exceptionally wide dynamic range, allowing you to accurately capture subtle photographic detail on both strongly lit and deeply shadowed areas of your picture at the same time. Extended ISO sensitivity settings let you handle the full gamut of lighting situations — from the bright and sunny outdoors to low-lit evenings and interiors.
3" high-resolution LCD with live view
This camera's bright LCD screen provides a crystal-clear window for reviewing your pics and movie clips. It also boasts three live view modes that let you compose photos and video on-screen in real time. Wide Area AF (autofocus) mode works great for shooting active subjects from tricky high or low angles that make it difficult to use the viewfinder. The Normal Area AF mode gives you ultra-precise focusing for still subjects when using a tripod. Nikon even included a Face Priority AF mode that can detect up to 35 people, and makes it easy to take sharp, in-focus portraits.
Shoot up to 6 frames per second
Nikon's advanced image processor provides near-instant camera startup and shutter response. It also makes it possible to shoot images continuously at up to 6 frames per second. All that speed is great for capturing high-quality photo sequences, like your young basketball star making a game-winning layup or a horse and rider clearing the fence at a steeplechase. The D7000's dual memory card slots store images on optional SD, SDHC, or SDXC cards, and can be configured to store your images in a variety of ways, including separate RAW and JPEG files or movies on one and stills on the other.
You don't have to be an expert photographer to use an SLR they all offer easy automatic shooting. Because of their build quality and the physics of good glass and large sensors, even their built-in automatic settings will get you better pictures than most point-and-shoots or mobile devices. But experienced photographers and budding hobbyists can get more creative by manually adjusting settings like aperture and shutter speed. SLRs let you expand your shooting options with additional lenses and flashes to suit just about any situation. If you'd like to record the occasional video, look for a model with high-def movie mode.
Great product so far. Love the camera, one of the best Nikon out there and a nice upgrade from my 5100. 18-200 lens is a fantastic all purpose lens and is well worth getting. Ordering from Crutchfield was easy and painless. Customer calls to confirm order and shipping almost immediately.
Pros: Camera is great, one of the best Nikon out there. A great camera body for the plethora of awesome Nikon lenses out there
Excellent product., fast focus, easy to hold, sharp pictures.
Ordered on Sunday and it was shipped on Monday. Camera is so much better than my D-80 and the 18-200 lens is great
I went online to find a battery for my Canon S95 point-n-shooter and ended up at Crutchfield buying this package, wow!!!. This is a great walk around package for a Digital camera package.

Overview: The Nikon D7000 D-SLR Kit includes the Nikon D7000 digital SLR camera body and the AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II Zoom Lens. The kit also includes a camera bag, 16 GB SDHC card, Nikon School DVD and book, EN-EL15 rechargeable Lithium Ion battery pack and a battery charger.
LCD Monitor: The Nikon D7000 has a 3" Super-Density TFT LCD monitor featuring approximately 921,000 dots, a 170-degree viewing angle, and adjustable brightness (-3 to +3). The monitor can display shooting information such as shutter speed, aperture, and number of exposures remaining as well as the settings currently applied.
Live View: The camera features One-Touch Live View, which allows you to frame your photographs in the monitor instead of the viewfinder. When the Live View switch is rotated, the mirror is raised and the view through the lens will be displayed in the monitor. The subject will no longer be visible in the viewfinder. The Live View display will show up to 10 items, including shooting, focus, and AF-area modes, along with other status indicators. You can opt to hide many of the indicators, or overlay a framing grid in the monitor.
Optical Viewfinder: The D7000 uses a fixed eye-level penta-mirror single-lens reflex viewfinder with a built-in diopter adjustment to set the viewfinder to your personal eyesight (with or without glasses). The viewfinder's coverage area is approximately 100% horizontal and vertical. During self-timer or remote control operation when your eye does not cover the viewfinder eyepiece, stray light may enter the eyepiece and affect the exposure when the image is captured. To prevent this, you can use the supplied eyepiece cap to cover the eyepiece.
Image Sensor: The D7000 features a 23.1mm x 15.4mm CMOS image sensor with a total pixel count of approximately 16.9 million pixels and an effective pixel count of approximately 16.2 million.
Dust Reduction System: The image sensor is equipped with a low-pass filter to remove dust or dirt on the sensor. You can set the camera to clean the image sensor automatically at startup, or at shut down, or both. It can also be set to turn the auto cleaning function off. The Dust Reduction System also includes Image Dust Off, which allows the camera to acquire reference data to be used with the Image Dust Off application in the optional Capture NX 2 software.
Recording Media: The camera records images on Secure Digital (SD) memory cards up to 2 GB in size, SDHC memory cards up to 32 GB, and SDXC cards up to 64 GB. A 16 GB Class 10 SD card is included with the camera kit.
Dual Media Slots: The D7000 has two slots for Secure Digital (SD) media. When two memory cards are inserted in the camera you have the following options:
Still Image Formats: The D7000 records still images in JPEG and NEF (RAW) formats. You can choose from the following Image Quality and Image Size settings:
|Available Image Sizes||Description|
|NEF (Raw)||4928 x 3264||Raw 12- or 14-bit data from the image sensor is saved directly to the memory card in compressed Nikon Electronic Format (NEF).|
|NEF + JPEG Fine, Normal, or Basic||4928 x 3264||Two images are recorded, one NEF image and one fine-quality JPEG image.|
4928 x 3264
M: 3696 x 2448
S: 2464 x 1632
|Fine image quality, suitable for enlargements or high-quality prints.|
|Normal image quality, suited to most applications|
|Basic image quality, suitable for pictures that will be distributed by e-mail or used in web pages.|
Movie Recording: The D7000 records movies in High Definition in 16:9 aspect ratio and Standard Definition in 3:2. Movies are recorded in MOV file format, with H.264/MPEG-4 advanced video coding, and Linear PCM audio, recorded by the built-in monaural microphone or an external stereo microphone. You can choose between normal and high quality recording. The maximum clip length is 20 minutes. The only metering method available is Matrix. Movies can be recorded in the following frame sizes and rates (NTSC):
|Frame Size (pixels)||Frame Rate (frames per second)|
|1920 x 1080 (16:9)||24 fps (actually 23.976)|
|1280 x 720 (16:9)||30 fps (29.97)|
|1280 x 720 (16:9)||24 fps (23.976)|
|640 x 424 (3:2)||30 fps (29.97)|
Focus Modes: The D7000's lets you choose from the following autofocus and manual focus modes:
AF Assist Illuminator: The built-in AF assist illuminator enables the camera to focus even when the subject is poorly lit. This feature will light automatically to assist the autofocus operation when the shutter release button is pressed halfway. It has an operating range of 1'-8" to 9'-10".
AF-Area Modes: The D7000 offers a choice of focus areas that together cover a wide area of the frame. The AF-area mode determines how the focus area is selected and what happens if the subject moves out of the selected focus area while the camera is still focusing. You can choose one of the following AF-area modes:
Focus Lock: Focus Lock can be used to change the composition after focusing, making it possible to focus on a subject that will not be in one of the focus points in the final composition.
Release Modes: The camera can take pictures one at a time, or continuously as long as the shutter release button is pressed. You can also take photos using the self-timer or with an optional remote control. The camera allows you to choose from the following Release Modes:
Nikon 3D Color Matrix Metering II: The D7000's 3D Color Matrix Metering II evaluates each scene for brightness, color, contrast, size and position of shadows and highlights, selected focus area and camera-to-subject distance, comparing that information against an onboard database of more than 30,000 actual photographic scenes. The result delivers instantly and precisely determined exposures for each scene, even in challenging lighting conditions.
Metering: You can choose from the following Metering Modes to determine how the camera sets exposure:
Shooting Modes: The Mode Dial on the top of the camera offers a choice of shooting modes:
AE/AF Lock: If your subject is off-centered in the frame, it can become difficult to achieve proper exposure and focus. By engaging the AE/AF Lock feature, you can focus and meter on your subject, lock the exposure and focus by pressing the shutter release button halfway, then recompose your shot before taking the picture. You can choose from the following AE/AF Lock settings.
Exposure Compensation: You can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure from -5.0 to +5.0 EV in 1/3 EV steps.
Long Exposure Noise Reduction: This option controls whether photographs taken at high sensitivities (over ISO 400) or shutter speeds slower than 8 seconds are processed to reduce noise before being recorded to the memory card. Noise reduction can be set to High, Normal, Low, or Off.
White Balance: White balance is used to preserve natural colors under different types of lighting. When the camera is set to one of the exposure modes, you can choose one of the following white balance options:
Note: In addition to the the basic White Balance options, the camera features advanced White Balance (color temperature) settings for specific types of lighting. You can choose from Sodium-vapor lamps, Incandescent/Warm-white fluorescent, White fluorescent, Cool-white fluorescent, Day white fluorescent, Daylight fluorescent, and Mercury-vapor lamps.
ISO Sensitivity: ISO Sensitivity is the digital equivalent of film speed. When lighting is poor, the camera will automatically increase sensitivity, permitting faster exposures, and minimizing blur caused by inadvertent camera movement, up to a maximum equivalent of ISO 6400. Using the ISO button and main command dial, you can manually select from ISO settings 100 to 6400, with incremental steps of 1/3 EV. You can also choose HI 1 (ISO 12800 equivalent) or HI 2 (ISO 25600 equivalent) for even higher sensitivity.
Active D-Lighting: Nikon's Active D-Lighting can correct exposure issues due to difficult lighting conditions instantly and automatically while you shoot. Active D-Lighting preserves details in highlights and shadows, creating photographs with natural contrast.
Flash: The D7000 has a built-in pop-up flash for illuminating poorly lit scenes or to fill in shadows and backlit subjects. There are several flash modes available, which vary depending upon the shooting mode selected:
Accessory Shoe: The camera has an accessory shoe for mounting optional SB-series Speedlights. The camera supports the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS) and can be used with CLS-compatible flash units.
Flash Exposure Compensation: In P, S, A, and M modes, the flash exposure compensation can be used to increase or reduce flash output from the level chosen by the camera's flash control system. The flash exposure compensation can be set to values between -3 EV (darker) and +1 EV (brighter) in increments of 1/3 or 1/2 EV.
Virtual Horizon: The camera can display a virtual horizon based on information from the camera tilt sensor. This can be displayed in the viewfinder or on the LCD monitor in Live View.
Histogram: The D7000 features the ability to view a histogram on the LCD monitor screen. A histogram is a graph showing the distribution of tones in the image.
Image Enhancement: When the camera is set to one of the P, S, A, or M modes, you can choose from the following image enhancement options:
Optional GPS: The GP-1 GPS unit (sold separately) can be connected to the camera's accessory terminal to allow information on the camera's current position to be recorded when photographs are taken.
Multi-Language Menu: You can choose from one of 22 languages for display of the camera menus and messages including English, French and Spanish.
