Recent settings/My menu

To help speed up the use of such long menus, the D7000 allows fast access to commonly-used menu options, either by keeping track of recently used settings or through a user-defined 'My menu.' Leaving the camera set to show Recent Settings can be a good way of seeing which menu options you regularly use, when you're deciding how to populate the 'My menu' option.

In the 'Recent settings' mode, you see the most regularly changed settings, plus 'Choose tab,' the ability to Add, Remove and Rank items only appears in 'My menu' mode.

I recently upgraded or downgraded "depending on how you look at it" from the D3200 to the D7000. Although I lost MP, I gained a lot more features. My first D7000 had serious focus, back focus, and pixel issues. After contacting the seller and receiving another one, I finally had a good one and was very pleased. Years ago I had a D5100 which is said to have the same sensor as the D7000, but I find the D7000 images to look much better. I would recommend the D7000 to anyone serious about photography but not able or willing to spend too much money. Be sure you use a good prime lenses like a Nikkor 35mm f1.8 or the 50mm f1.8. Otherwise you will be wasting your time and/or money.

It took me a while to get juse to the d7000 the ergonomics are just fine only lighter body after my d200 which was outdated a long time ago on which i got
great foto's only the colors are very different from my old d200 which i liked a lot never thought about the 10 mp


Very subjective to speak to responsiveness as it depends greatly on the skill of the photographer, subject matter, time of day/night, etc. However, the Canon 60D and other Canon products are quick, but they have far less keepers as the AF module is not as accurate as the Nikon family of DSLR’s.


I think that this camera takes exceptional photos, I chose this model over the newer D3200 just for the additional photo taking features rather than the new user features. Kit lens is great for beginners and takes decent photos.

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 ?
