If you love product from Nikon, you might love Nikon D7000!!!

Although ergonomically, the D7000 is a very close match for the D90.The D7000 has a great body. You may love walking around town, on trips or working, just carrying it around. Very well balanced, very comfortable to hold.The body is the stub below the shutter release to hold the camera up with your middle finger. This makes it so easy to grip the camera and add stability when shooting freeform. The SD card slot placement is also excellent.The grip and SD card slot placement is perfectly suited to do just that. It may go without saying that every aspect of the D7000’s body is intelligently thought of and mapped. Grips are perfectly placed, the two rotor dials are easy to use with a thumb and index finger at any time, all of the buttons are well suited and easy to press.

The screen itself is the regulation 3 inches is a thing of beauty. Looking at a 16.2MP shot on that tiny screen doesn’t do any photo justice, but for real world shots it produces excellent color and accurate tones.  The D7000 simply can’t process that data properly on the small screen, so you have to zoom in until it clears up. Overall, the display is excellent.

Button placement is generally very good. The review button has moved from the most button selector left of the screen to the high left, right next to the trash button. Obviously it’ll take time for anyone to regulate from another system.  The buttons are very responsive and they’re comfortable to press, though they’re also very rubbery. You could press one and not be 100% certain that it was actually pressed.

As the first 1080p shooting DSLR from Nikon, the D7000 has a record button and a digital viewfinder function. To activate the digital viewfinder, there’s a lever kept in place by a spring, which is a strange control compared to the buttons and dials for every other function.

The shooting choice dial incorporates a number of different modes.  There are actually two dials, the shooting mode on top and a shooting type below. Nine shooting modes include the four basic manual modes, auto, no flash auto, two programmable settings, and a scene selection that can be set for a number of different modes like candlelight, pet portrait, food, etc. There are a total of 15 different scene settings. To switch between modes you have to turn the main command dial until reaching the proper setting, and with 15 different modes that can take awhile.
