Nikon D7000 DSLR Announced

By September 15, 2010

Follow me on:

Maybe the DSLR camera isn't going away after all.

DIL or EVIL cameras have grown greatly in popularity in the past couple of years. These smaller, interchangeable lens cameras are very nice additions to the market.

But, with very impressive new DSLRs now appearing, it's obvious the market isn't ready to give up on the DSLR segment. Olympus announced its E-5 DSLR camera yesterday, and, today, Nikon has announced its latest DSLR camera, the D7000.

The D7000 features a 16.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor. When coupled with Nikon's EXPEED 2 image processing system, which allows for fast autofocus, low noise in photos, and six frames per second in burst mode, the D7000 creates high-quality images with impressive speed.

Look for 1080p HD video capability, a 3.0-inch high-resolution LCD, and a built-in flash unit with the D7000, which should be available beginning in mid-October at $1,199.95 for the camera body only.

Thanks for the comment! I agree that the D5100 looks like a great model, and I’m hoping we’ll have a chance to review it soon. I did write a short piece on the D5100 (linked below) a few weeks ago, but I’m hoping Nikon will have a D5100 available to send me to test soon.
