Nikon unveiled today the Nikon D7000 DSLR Camera. The Nikon D7000 is a new mid-class DX-format camera with a compact body loaded with a number of advanced functions.
As the D-SLR market expands, D-SLR users are becoming more diverse to include those who demand the ability to capture images with greater definition and image quality, those looking for more advanced shooting functions, and those looking for the ability to record movies with the rich power of expression that is only possible with SLR cameras.
The 16.2MP Nikon D7000 is a high-quality mid-class D-SLR that responds to user demands with a variety of the latest camera technologies and functions for high-quality, high-definition shooting, all in a durable, high-performance, yet compact body. Among its features are a new DX-format CMOS image sensor, Nikon's latest image-processing engine, EXPEED 2, a new 2,016-pixel metering sensor, a new AF system that utilizes 39 focus points, and the D-Movie function that enables recording of full HD movies.
The Nikon D7000 is already on sale on Amazon for $1,499 instead of $1,690 with 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR ED Nikkor Lens. This is still a pre-order, but Amazon has apparentely already cut the price. The Nikon D7000 Body only is on sale for $1,199.95 on Amazon instead of $1,350.
