									Nikon D7000 DSLR Hands-On
Celebrate photography loving people, the new Nikon D7000 DSLR has just been unveiled. With
its glass pentaprism viewfinder that provides 100 per cent and 0.94 x magnification, the Nikon
D7000 DSLR gives you a clear idea of what you shoot while sustainability is ensured by a
magnesium alloy and the rear spoiler. Basic specifications include a 16.2 megapixel sensor
based on Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor, Expeed 2 engine for image processing and the ISO is
now 100 to 6400, expandable to 25600 making the Nikon D7000 DSLR ahead of other digital
cameras.

A 1080p 24fps video recording is also possible using
AVC/H.264 compression, the AF-F system allows
you to concentrate continuously for registration
and there is a stereo microphone for sound. It is
even possible to change the start point and end on
the device, and select an image to use as a still
image.

The new DSLR also provides dual memory slots, so
you can choose to backup storage, or store
different formats on different cards. A key element
is a new measure RGB sensor, which, with 2016
pixels is twice the measure of its pixels high end of
previous measurement sensors, which should pay dividends in terms of focus, exposure and
white balance. There is also a new 39-point autofocus system.
