It’s not only about what you photograph and how you capture it; it’s also about what you photograph with. The Nikon D7000 is a high-resolution, multi-featured camera with 16.2 megapixels of vividly detailed images, a more sensitive DX-format CMOS sensor that delivers high ISO with low noise, and a variety of automatic and customizable settings to help you take your photos and videos from good to stunning. 

To astonish and inspire, shoot at up to 6 frames per second or film every second of the action with full HD 1080p D-Movies using Nikon’s superior focusing technology.

The D7000 has the resolution you need, whether you want to produce huge prints or trim a picture closely. A DX-format CMOS picture sensor with 16.2 effective megapixels lies at the core of the camera, which has been optimized to capture more quality light through crisp NIKKOR lenses. 

The D7000 generates magnificent images with 14-bit A/D conversion (12-bit configurable) that are richer in tone and detail than previously attainable in DX format.


TypeSingle-lens reflex digital camera
Release Date2010-11-31
Body TypeMid-size DSLR
ProcessorExpeed 2

As simple to recommend as a cold glass of lemonade on a hot summer day, Nikon’s top enthusiast digital SLR camera is at least as enjoyable. The Nikon D7000 is an upgrade to the already excellent D90, a redesign that keeps the D90’s tiny, agile body while enhancing practically every significant internal feature. With an output speed of up to 6 frames per second, the 16.2-megapixel sensor and Expeed 2 engine work together to produce high-quality photographs at all ISO settings, from 100 to 25,600.

A few of the additional features featured in the Nikon D7000 are full 1080p HD video capture, twin memory card slots, 39 AF points, a new color-sensitive meter, a nearly 100% viewfinder, and in-camera editing.

Weather Sealing

The Nikon D7000 incorporates environmental sealings on its body, making it a weather-resistant camera and preventing water and dust from getting inside. The Nikon D7000 will serve you well if you enjoy taking pictures outside and want to be able to utilize your camera in challenging circumstances.

With aspect ratios of 3:2, you can shoot at a maximum resolution of 4928 x 3264 pixels. There are also two possibilities with a reduced resolution: 3,696 x 2,448 or 2,464 x 1,632 pixels.

The D7000 features an ISO range of 100 to 6400, which can be increased to 25600, and it can store images in RAW format, which allows for more post-processing options.

The Nikon D7000 does not have the greatest APS-C resolution. The Canon M6 MII, with its 33.0MP sensor, is the class leader.

Nikon D7000 DxOMark Sensor Scores

DxOMark is a benchmark that evaluates the picture quality of camera sensors scientifically. The picture quality of the Nikon D7000 sensor was assessed by DxO Mark and had an overall score of 80. The specifics of their Nikon D7000 analysis may be found here.

In most cases, the Nikon D7000 offers both Contrast Detection and Phase Detection autofocus (AF) systems, ensuring speed and precision of focusing. The AF system features 39 focus points, 9 of which are Cross-type sensors. When compared to single-type sensors, cross-type sensors lock focus faster and more accurately.

Face detection AF is also available on the Nikon D7000, which intelligently identifies and locks focus on faces in the frame.

The Nikon D7000 has a new 39-point autofocus system with 9 cross-type sensors. The bigger the number of cross-type sensors, the better. The Nikon D90, for example, has 11 focus points and just one cross-type sensor, but the Nikon D300s has 51 focus points and 15 cross-type sensors.

There are a variety of factors that impact focusing accuracy, and there are several reasons why photographs from the D7000 may look softer than those from previous generations of cameras. 

Many photographers who are new to DSLRs or who have recently upgraded from an entry-level DSLR such as the D40 to a D7000 lack a basic grasp of how to employ multiple focusing settings to get proper focus.

They merely shoot shots hand-held, expecting the D7000 to deliver tack-sharp images without doing any reading or knowing how to utilize the multiple AF settings on the camera.

There are several shots on the Internet of fuzzy dogs and cats taken in Single Servo (AF-S) mode while moving, with photographers blaming the equipment for the out-of-focus images. In other circumstances, you may hear photographers state things like “my Nikon D40 was much sharper, and I never had any focus issues with any of my lenses on it.” Just a moment. They were previously watching a 6 MP image at 100% on their computer screens, and now they are viewing a 16 MP image at 100% on their computer screens, and they want them to appear equally sharp? They are, of course! However, they do not appear to comprehend the following:

  • Better lenses that can resolve more detail are required for high-resolution sensors. On the D7000, don’t expect your old lousy DX kit lens to produce razor-sharp shots.
  • When photos are seen at 100%, camera shaking is more visible on high-resolution sensors.
  • On high-resolution sensors, even little focusing mistakes are noticeable.

Video Recording

With the Nikon D7000, you can capture films in MPEG-4 and H.264 codecs at a maximum quality of 1920 x 1080 at 24 frames per second. In most instances, the Nikon D7000’s full HD resolution will be enough. However, if you want the highest-resolution movies, check out our selection of the Best 4K (Ultra-HD) Cameras.

A Mono microphone and a Mono speaker are included in the D7000. The Nikon D7000 also contains an external microphone port, allowing you to capture high-quality sound using an external microphone. It does not, however, include a headphone jack.

Although I rarely take video (save for family recordings), the Nikon D7000’s high-definition 1080p video option enticed me to give it a try. I took a few films of my kids inside in bright light, and the video quality was rather nice.

I decided to test my copy of the D7000 after reading several concerns concerning hot pixels appearing in films at high ISOs. When I filmed movies at ISO 3200, I did see a few of fairly huge hot pixels. The heated pixels disappeared once I changed the firmware on the D7000 to the latest 1.01 version.

Aside from that, I had no issues with video recording with the D7000. It’s good to have manual exposure adjustment, however, you can’t alter the aperture or ISO when shooting video, so do it before pushing the red record button.

Thanks to the redesigned lever on the back of the camera, switching between Live View/Video mode is a breeze, and I much prefer it to the “Lv” button on older Nikon DSLRs.

The SD-card door on the Nikon D90 is notably smaller than the card door on the Nikon D7000 to the right. Has the CF card slot been brought back? No, they added two SD card slots in place of that. That is what we mean by an update, my friends.

Both slots accept SDHC and SDXC cards, and the camera may be set up to route JPEGs and Raw files to different cards or to use the second slot as a backup for everything sent to the other card slot. Both slots are compatible with SDHC and SDXC cards. Additionally, you may choose which card movies should be written to and in-camera transfer data across cards.

Flash sync speedX = 1/250 s; synchronizes with shutter at 1/320 s or slower (flash range drops at speeds between 1/250 and 1/320 s)

The Nikon D7000 has a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 sec. and can shoot continuously at a maximum rate of 6 fps.

When shooting action or portraits, the Nikon D7000’s quick shutter sound and brief viewfinder blackout period make it easier to stay in close proximity to your subject. You can imagine how subdued the Nikon D7000 is when you press the shutter if you know someone who never causes trouble but always acts sorry as if they do. While that could be a little irritating to a person, it works perfectly for a camera because it should move out of the way as quickly as possible while making as little noise as possible so you can prepare your next image.

In addition to two new User modes, the Nikon D7000’s exposure modes include Auto, Program, Aperture-priority, Shutter-priority, Manual, Flash Off, and Scene. The D7000’s scene modes no longer deserve separate locations on the Mode dial; instead, they are now grouped together in the Scene mode position.

In addition to the Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close-up, and Night Portrait scene modes available on the D90, there are now Night landscape, Party/indoor, Beach/Snow, Sunset, Dusk/Dawn, Pet portrait, Candlelight, Blossom, Autumn colors, Food, Silhouette, High key, and Low key scene modes as well. Camera settings are stored and quickly recalled for use at a later time using the two User positions.

There are shutter speeds between 1/8,000 and 30 seconds that can be selected in stages of 1/3 or 1/2EV, plus a bulb position for longer exposures. The shutter mechanism in the Nikon D7000 is rated to last around 150,000 cycles. Within a +/-5.0 EV range, exposure adjustment is offered in steps of 1/3 or 1/2 EV. Additionally, the Nikon D7000 has two- or three-frame exposure bracketing with steps of 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, or 1EV.

Sync terminalSync Terminal Adapter AS-15 (available separately)

The Nikon D7000 has an integrated pop-up flash strobe for photography in dim light as well as an ISO 518 intelligent hot shoe for adding external strobes. Nikon provides an optional hot shoe-mounted sync connector adapter for use with studio strobes in place of the absence of a built-in PC sync port. In Auto and most Scene settings, the built-in flash will activate automatically as needed and has a 16mm field of view; in other modes, it can be manually activated.

The guide distance is 12 meters (39 feet) at 68°F (20°C) and ISO 100. I-TTL, auto-aperture, non-TTL auto, and distance-priority manual are some of the flash metering modes that are available, and their availability depends on the flash model.

The Nikon D7000 additionally provides two or three-frame flash exposure bracketing, with a step size between exposures of 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, or 1EV. Flash exposure correction ranges from -3 to +1 EV.

The Nikon D7000 features in-camera support for Nikon’s Creative Lighting System with the built-in flash and with compatible external flashes, as well as support for Auto FP high-speed sync and modeling lighting for all Creative Lighting System-compatible flashes other than the SB-400. Although it can be adjusted to 1/320 second at the expense of flash range, flash X-sync is currently set at 1/250 second.

White Balance

White balanceAuto (2 types), incandescent, fluorescent (7 types), direct sunlight, flash, cloudy, shade, preset manual (up to 5 values can be stored), choose color temperature (2,500 K to 10,000 K), all with fine-tuning; white balance bracketing: 2 to 3 frames in steps of 1, 2 or 3

There are no less than 20 different white balance settings available on the Nikon D7000, including two Auto modes, 12 presets, five manual positions, and a direct color temperature adjustment. With the use of data from the new color metering sensor, the secondary Auto white balance option, dubbed Ambient Auto, renders colors in a warm manner that may be preferable for shooting sunsets, golden hour photos, and other types of natural light. Pentax’s Color Temperature Enhancement (CTE) setting, which debuted with the K-7 model, appears to perform a similar effect.

Live View

Lens servoAutofocus (AF): Single-servo AF (AF-S); full-time-servo AF (AF-F)Manual focus (M)
AF-area modesFace-priority AF, wide-area AF, normal-area AF, subject-tracking AF
AutofocusContrast-detect AF anywhere in frame (camera selects focus point automatically when face-priority AF or subject-tracking AF is selected)

The live view and video features of the Nikon D90 are still supported by the D7000, although with some significant changes. The OK button in the middle of the four-way joystick served as a Movie record button while Live view was in use on the D90, which has a dedicated button for starting and stopping Live view mode. In the D7000, the Live View mode is now activated by a specific selecting lever, and a button situated in the middle of the lever’s pivot point serves as a specific button for recording movies.

The Live View mode of the Nikon D7000 is able to locate up to 35 faces simultaneously, which is seven times more than the Live view mode of the D90, and retains the face identification and tracking functionality of that camera.


Playback functionFull-frame and thumbnail (4, 9, or 72 images or calendar) playback with playback zoom, movie playback, slide show, highlights, histogram display, auto image rotation, and image comment (up to 36 characters)


Video outputNTSC, PAL; images can be displayed on the external device while camera monitor is on
HDMI outputType C mini-pin HDMI connector; camera monitor turns off when HDMI cable is connected
Accessory terminalRemote cord: MC-DC2 (available separately)GPS Unit: GP-1 (available separately)

Numerous connectivity possibilities are available with the Nikon D7000. There is a typical USB 2.0 High-Speed port for data transfer to a computer. Using the Type-C Mini HDMI port or the NTSC/PAL switchable composite port, respectively, videos can be viewed on low- or high-definition displays. The HDMI port overrides the camera’s LCD display whereas the standard-def composite port keeps the LCD active while in operation.

Additionally, it complies with the Consumer Electronics Control (HDMI-CEC) standard, which enables remote control of some playback features using an associated display’s remote control via the HDMI cable. Additionally, the Nikon D7000 has an accessory connector that is compatible with the optional accessories GP-1 GPS and MC-DC2 remote cable release.

The 3.5mm stereo microphone input jack described before is also included on the Nikon D7000.

Instead of using the older EN-EL3e type of lithium-ion battery, the Nikon D7000 now uses the EN-EL15 model. The new battery pack is smaller and has a 1,900 mAh capacity. According to CIPA testing guidelines, the battery should last roughly 1,050 shots. The optional MB-D11 portrait battery grip, which can accommodate either one EN-EL15 lithium-ion battery pack or six regular AA cells, is also compatible with the Nikon D7000.

Nikon also offers an optional EP-5B power supply connector, which is effectively a dummy battery to which the company’s EH-5 AC adapter may be connected, for longer-term power, such as in a studio.
