The 18-55mm bundled with the more basic D3100 and D5100 feel somehow limited offering roughly 3x optical zoom. Video recording was one of the cool new features of the D90 - it could shoot 720p video, the new D7000 is more up-to-date with its 1920x1080 recording capability, at 24 fps.
Now space for two memory cards
The D7000 adds two SD memory card slots, so you can shoot more and not have to shuffle between memory cards. There’s also the 3-inch display that’s handy while focussing during photo and video shooting. There’s also a top view display that lets you quickly access controls and settings without having to look back at the larger display over and over again. In terms of connectivity, there’s a mini HDMI port, a microphone in port and even one for an external GPS module. File transferring is done using the mini USB port, but if you buy an Eye-Fi capable card, you’ll be able to transfer data over Wi-Fi.
An additional ring for choosing shooting styles on the left
The controls are a bit more complicated. There’s the standard mode selection dial, which includes the PSAM (program, shutter priority, aperture priority and manual) shooting modes, along with a second dial that allows quick switching from the single shot mode to the burst modes, and so on. This is bound to be a tiny bit confusing at first, to any entry-level DSLR user. In the long run, however, switching to different shooting modes becomes simple. The primary mode selection dial has two settings reserved for customizable settings.
Pretty identical to the D90 on the rear
Operation is relatively simple like it was with the D90. The two jog dials make switching parameters and settings easy. The menu itself is colourful and self-explanatory. There’s also a neat little Help button on the side, which lets you get a quick brief of each feature. There’s plenty of firepower as far as effects and filters are concerned.
Video shooting is simple. The settings for the video recording appear in a separate camera menu, but the shooting can be started by simply pressing the dedicated video record button. There’s also a notch, which lets you turn on and off the Live View feature.
