Best Nikon D7000 Memory Cards

Best Nikon D7000 Memory Cards

A great number of people were caught off guard when Nikon launched the D7000 in the month of September.

Although a replacement for the D90 had been on the horizon for some time, what was unexpected was the degree to which the new camera would turn out to be comparable to the D300S in terms of the specifications it offered. As a matter of fact, the D7000 really outguns its (said to be semi-pro) cousin, and thus presents a tempting upgrade choice to owners of both the D90 and the D300S, despite the fact that it is officially located between the two in Nikon’s current array of cameras.

Because of its magnesium alloy body shell and slightly thicker rubber covering on the hand handle and rear of the camera, the D7000 has a far more serious ‘feel’ than the D90 does, despite the fact that the D7000 is very nearly identical to the D90 in terms of ergonomics.

The D3X has a resolution of 24 megapixels, making it Nikon’s DSLR with the greatest resolution available; the D7000 has a resolution of 16.2 megapixels. All of these pixels have been crammed onto a recently created CMOS sensor, which is almost definitely the same as, or extremely similar to, the sensor that is found in the Sony Alpha SLT-A55. The new sensor provides a higher standard ISO spread of 100-6400, which can be expanded up to the equivalent of ISO 25,600. This is in addition to the increased resolution that it provides.
