16.2 megapixels & EXPEED 2
Rich in details and smooth tones under any lighting
• Lens: AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR • Image quality: 12-bit RAW (NEF) • Exposure: [M] mode, 1/160 second, f/4.5 • White balance: Direct sunlight • Sensitivity: ISO 640 • Picture Control: Neutral ©Chase Jarvis
Stunning image details: 16.2 effective
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.
The A/D conversion happens within the
sensor, thereby maintaining exceptional
image integrity without sacrificing shooting speed or energy efficiency. Combine
these with the agile DX format and its signature 1.5x focal length telephoto potential
and you can begin to see where this kind
of shooting power can take you.
Improved image quality and speed:
EXPEED 2 image processing engine
Sometimes you want to capture the subtle
tones of a sunset. Other times you want to
freeze the action. The D7000 delivers both,
thanks to the newest generation of image
processing engine, EXPEED 2, which performs 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.
Shoot continuously at
approx. 6 frames per
second so you can capture the action you’ve
been missing.
Standard ISO 100 to 6400, expandable
to ISO 25600 equivalent
With improved pixel quality of the image
sensor comes a wider ISO range from the
DX-format — 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 minimised colour noise. And thanks to
the higher processing speed, you can keep
shooting continuously without stress, even
when high ISO noise reduction is activated.
Quality high-ISO performance can also
enhance a lot for movie shooting, allowing
you to capture the mood of a scene using
only available light.
Capture full HD 1080p D-Movie with
full-time autofocus and manual exposure
The D7000 welcomes in a new era of
movie capture: Full HD 1080p and movie
editing functions for exceptional cinematic
reproduction and quality. In addition to
smooth-moving images, the camera can
compensate for distortion and other
image-degrading problems. Besides auto
exposure mode, the D7000 offers manual
exposure mode, which locks in the exposure value when shooting scenes with
varying contrast levels, such as when
panning from a bright window to a dark
interior. Aside from a built-in monaural
microphone, the D7000 incorporates an
external microphone jack for high-quality
stereo sound recording options.
Improved quality in highlight and
shadow: Active D-Lighting
Nikon’s exclusive Active D-Lighting offers
the ability to preserve details in the highlights and shadowy areas of images shot
in high-contrast scenes. Whether you’re
dealing with bright skies and a dark foreground or deep shadows where you
can’t use a flash, the EXPEED 2 image
processing engine renders those scenes
with smoother tones — even at its highest
settings. Simply select Auto in Active
D-Lighting mode and the camera can adjust
to the scene’s contrast levels or bracket
them into three frames of varying strength
levels. Even when Active D-Lighting is activated, you can
still maintain
the continuous
shooting rate.

Now even more precise: The Scene
Recognition System
The D7000 incorporates a built-in exposuremetering sensor with a far larger pixel count
than any other D-SLR camera before it. The
2,016-pixel RGB sensor reads the scene’s
brightness and colours more
accurately, and then applies
this reading to optimise not
only auto exposure, but
also autofocus, auto white
balance and i-TTL flash calculations — all
in mere milliseconds prior to the actual
exposure. With more pixels, the D7000 can
recognise even smaller subjects — both
moving and stationary. The newly improved
Scene Recognition System delivers better
photographs in every way.
Wide-area coverage, powerful
39-point AF
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
utilise powerful cross-type sensors —
especially useful when you need pinsharp focus such as with
portraits and macro work.
And unlike other manufacturers’ systems, the
D7000’s 9 cross-type
sensors work with all AF NIKKOR lenses
f/5.6 or faster. The D7000 offers a variety
of AF area modes, including dynamic-area
AF using 9, 21, 39 points. Switch between
the three, depending on the predictability
of your subjects’ movement, and the
selected AF point and surrounding points
will track your intended subject automatically. There is also 3D-tracking, which continuously follows moving subjects within
the 39 AF points, indicating the activated
AF point in the

lighting colours
AF properly judges the main subject
within 39 AF points and focuses on it.
Therefore, no matter what the situation
or composition calls for, the D7000’s
autofocus system will be ready to meet
your focus needs.
Sophisticated AE with 2,016-pixel RGB
After the incredibly accurate 2,016-pixel
RGB sensor reads a scene’s lighting information such as brightness and colours, the
D7000 cross-references what it sees
with imaging data from a large selection
of real-world shooting situations. This way,
the renowned 3D Colour 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.
Informed auto white balance (AWB)
Based on its massive collection of shooting
data compiled from various light sources,
the D7000’s intelligent AWB algorithm
renders white as truly white — even
when shot under a wide range of light
sources, including the difficult mercury
vapour lighting. The D7000 also carries
another AWB mode that maintains incandescent warmth in your images.
Contrast-detect AF for Live View and
Live View and D-Movie users can rejoice,
because with the D7000, contrast-detect
AF is now faster than ever. Moreover,
face-priority AF can detect up to 35
people. For moving subjects such as pets,
subject-tracking AF keeps them in focus.
Normal-area AF is recommended for pinpoint focus and wide-area AF for handheld
shooting. All are effective both for Live
View shooting and movie recording.
More responsive power mechanism
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.
* Based on CIPA Guidelines.

An ideal view in a rugged build
Rugged and protected: compact magnesium alloy body and
sealing against dust and moisture
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.
921k-dots, 170-degree viewing angle,
7.5 cm (3-in.) LCD monitor
The D7000 features an expansive 7.5 cm
(3-in.) VGA LCD monitor with reinforced
glass. Its approx. 921k-dot resolution
assures clear, detailed display of images,
which proves invaluable when confirming focus or assessing image
sharpness. The wide 170˚ viewing angle and bright display make
it easy to review images or confirm menu settings when shooting
Approx. 100% frame coverage
With approximately 100% frame coverage
in the viewfinder, what you see is what you
exactly 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.
Electronic Virtual Horizon
Especially useful for landscape shooting,
the virtual horizon indicated in the LCD lets
you know when the camera is level. It can
also be displayed during Live View shooting. Additionally, you can confirm whether
the camera is level via the optical viewfinder with the Viewfinder
virtual horizon.
Precision and durability: 150,000 cycles
tested shutter unit
The D7000 has a shutter speed range of
1/8,000 to 30 seconds, with a top flash
synchronisation speed of 1/250 second.
And just like with professional models, the
shutter unit is tested for 150,000 cycles in severe conditions, proving
precision and durability.
Double SD card slots
Two memory card slots offer a number of
advantages: sequential recording; recording
the same images simultaneously on two
cards; recording RAW and JPEG separately
onto two different cards; and duplicating
images from one card to another. It’s also possible to designate a specific card with more memory for use at the time of movie recording.
Intuitive operation: strategically
located dials, buttons and switches
Each and every control on the D7000 has
been strategically placed for streamlined
operation. The mode dial and release mode
dial are stacked on the same axis for easier
access. Two new user settings can be assigned to the mode dial.
The release mode dial now offers a quiet shutter release mode for
near-silent operation. Its intuitively designed switch and button structure makes movie recording smooth while allowing for one-touch
activation of Live View.
Intelligent power management
After carefully scrutinising every aspect
of the camera’s circuitry, Nikon engineers
have designed the D7000 for maximum
performance with minimised power usage.
With the newly designed Rechargeable
Li-ion Battery EN-EL15, up to approx. 1,050 frames* can be taken on
a single charge.

Nikon Creative Lighting System
The D7000 has a built-in pop-up flash that covers
a 16mm lens perspective without vignetting. The
flash is fully compatible with the Nikon Creative
Lighting System (CLS) and delivers well-balanced
flash exposures thanks to the innovative i-TTL flash
control. The built-in flash also offers commander
mode to trigger remote flash units when using
Advanced Wireless Lighting. The dual advantages
for i-TTL technology and wireless capability make
sophisticated remote flash control simple and inspiring. One simple remote flash from the side using the
SB-910 or SB-700 creates more
