    Gotta admit I picked up a D7000 while waiting for the D3x to come down from the ionesphere. So far finding the images and video to be superb.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Russ, I checked out a D7000 in the local camera store and was also very impressed. My initial response was, “All this just over a thousand bucks?!” For many shooters, this is the no-brainer choice.

  • Amy Kropp says:

    Dan, as I’ve posted on your site before (or maybe it was on Twitter), I own a Nikon D7000, and I love it. I upgraded from the D90, which is also an excellent camera. Before I bought it, I really debated whether I wanted a D700 or a D7000. I chose the D7000 because of the price and the video features, and also, because I’m a serious amateur and not a pro (which makes the higher price of the D700 harder to justify). I take a lot of outdoor photography, and I’m starting to try out the video (I’d love to put together some multimedia slideshows). So far, the D7000 has been the perfect camera for me.

  • Phil Pippo says:

    Dan — As a Nikon shooter (and D90 owner) I enjoyed reading your evaluation. What do you see as the benefits in trading up to the D7000 from the D90? Would you expect to see an appreciable difference in picture quality between the two?

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
