Nikon D7000 review by White Wedding Photography

The Nikon D7000 is a great camera. I’ve recently invested in one and the quality is simply outstanding. Without a doubt it’s Nikon’s best DX on the market today. It’s a crime that Nikon are still charging more for the D300s! The above test shot was taken at F5, ISO400.

There’s a lot of features to love about the D7000. Straight off the bat it is one of the highest resolution Nikons with a 16.2 megapixel sensor. It has two fully configurable SD slots, allowing you to back up or increase storage capacity. There’s a variety of release modes to choose from including continuous shooting (up to 6 frames per second) and a new quiet release mode for candid snaps. It has a fast 39 point AF system with an impressive 3D tacking capability. It’s live view mode is particulary useful as it allows you to get a real time impression of the effects of exposure and white balance before capture. It also uses Nikon’s new 2016-pixel RGB metering system to ensure accurate exposure. What a camera!

As a wedding photographer, there’s a couple stand out features that really makes this a great choice. One of the best features of the D7000 is how well the camera deals with digital noise at higher ISO’s. It has a standard range of 100-6400, with extendible settings up to 25,600. Up to 800 is very clean and you can still get great results up to IS0 3200. Ken Rockwell has even claimed that the D7000 is the world’s cleanest camera at the sky high IS0 of 25,600, even surpassing the D3! This is great for the wedding photographer is it allows us to shoot without flash in low light conditions such as churches and wedding receptions.

For it’s spec it’s also relatively light weight coming in at just 0.78 kg. Anything you else you could expect to to use in a professional context is much heavier and cumbersome than the D7000. This allows the photographer to be more mobile and more discrete when getting those golden reportage shots. Despite it’s light weight it’s still durable, boasting a magnesium alloy top and rear covers and eviromentally sealed joints to protect against dust and moisture.

The other outstanding feature of this camera is it’s 1080p high definition video capability! The D7000 has a dedicated full time autofocus feature with a variety of settings for wide angles, movement tracking, and face recognition. All you need to do is attach an external microphone and you’ve got yourself a high def video camera. As a wedding and event photographer this little extra is the icing on the cake is it means at the flick of a switch I can essentially become a videographer!

This is a really, really good camera. I would definitely recommend it to any professionals looking for a dedicated DX camera for event and wedding photography.
