This light weight and durable magnesium alloy body employed Nikon D7000 is a DX-format CMOS image sensor with 16.2 megapixels, wheedled to gather more quality light through sharp Nikkor lenses, which will produce stunning images that are richer in tone and detail which was previously possible in DX format without sacrificing its shooting speed or energy efficiency. This is also equipped with the new image-processing engine which is “Expeed 2” featuring a higher performance noise reduction, improved color reproduction, high-speed image and movie processing, and efficient energy saving.
It has also a wide sensitivity ISO range from 100 to 6400 at normal setting and can be rasie to ISO 25600 also known as Hi 2. You can maintain a high ISO setting and would still get sharp images with less noise.
Its auto focus system featured a high density focus of 39 focus points and has a multi-power battery pack MB-D11 and Double SD card slots which is SDXC compatible.
A great body, but I am still waiting for the selling price in the market. Rumors have spread that this is the replacement of Nikon d90.
