Review

When Nikon introduced the D7000 back in 2010, it was their second camera to offer continual autofocus during video recording. The company was the first to tackle the technology, introducing it with the D300S a few months earlier. The question for the new camera was whether or not its price tag is justified by the additional features it had; one that's still being debated two years after the D7000 hit store shelves.

At a resolution of 16.2 mp, the D7000 is a bit shy of the 18 mp found in the Canon EOS 60D. But it does have a larger sensor. Compared against the Nikon D90, they both have the same size sensor but the DS90 resolution is only 12.3 mp. We say all that to say you get very good image quality with the D7000 -- even in low light.

The new body is also a step up from previous models. Nikon decided to use a magnesium alloy case and a profile that was redesigned to make it a bit more ergonomic. It also feels plenty hefty; that's something advanced amateurs and professionals looking for cheaper alternative will appreciate. Along with that slightly redesigned profile are a set of newly designed controls and digital menu systems most will find very efficient.

If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the D300S you'll probably find the D7000 attractive. However, if you're happy with your D90 we wouldn't recommend spending the extra money on this one.

Advantages: continual autofocus during video recording; great ratio of sensor size to resolution; redesigned profile more ergonomic; great picture and video quality; dual storage slots.

Disadvantages: a bit too expensive for our tastes; minor saturation issues; minor noise issues above ISO 800; autofocus sound can be heard on video clips.
