With a high end optical viewfinder that provides complete frame coverage, 14-bit analog to digital conversion and the famed EXPEED 2 image capture technology, the Nikon D7000 takes perfect pictures in all lighting conditions. Numerous built-in shooting modes allow you to take professional-quality pictures in controlled settings, and this camera has ISO setting as high as 25,600 with little noise. It is easy to use, durable and lightweight, and can also capture HD video. It is extremely versatile, both in terms of its image capture capabilities as well as its controls and settings, offering wireless commander input.
The one major drawback of this camera is its relatively short camera battery life. Its DX imaging sensor is also on the small side, being slight in size as you might expect from an entry level DSLR camera. Its compatibility with numerous memory cards and the outstanding quality of its images makes up for these shortcomings, though.
