Menus

The D7000 uses the same menu system that we've seen on most recent Nikon DSLRs. There are a lot of functions and options to choose from but despite the comprehensiveness the menus are comprehensible and navigable, thanks to Nikon's sensible categorization and color-coding.

Help pages

Like other more recent Nikon DSLRs the D7000 comes with a help feature: any setting with available help is indicated by a circular question-mark icon (?) at the bottom left of the screen. Press and hold the help/protect/WB button to the lest of the screen to display a context-sensitive help page.

As an upgrade to the D80 , the D7000 is a definite improvement , but build quality is still lacking , next to say, the D300S .

That being sad , the camera handles well ,even if the video function is still an option I scorn .

The main problem I have, is the slow flash sync speed with my SB 600 flashgun - a pathetic 1/60 sec .To utilise the full potential of the D7000 , I need to upgrade my flash gun - not easy when finances are tight .

You never tell us what ISO settings you shoot at in low light mode so how is that helpful ?
