Re: A baby D3s? British Journal of Photography review D7000

PS there are some interesting comments regarding the 12mp cameras and in the Q and A at the end an interesting comment about D200 and updated software.

Re: A baby D3s? British Journal of Photography review D7000

Thank you for posting. Interesting article and comments, as I just purchased a D7K two day ago.

I am quickly getting the settings adjusted to my liking. I will be using it for it virgin-busting first event shoot next weekend.

Again thanks.

Re: A baby D3s? British Journal of Photography review D7000

One interesting thing is his constant stating that the D7000 is "as good as the D3 BUT..." I'm sure the D7000 is a nice and capable camera but from this review at least, it's not a "baby D3."

The review sounds like it's written by a person who's a writer first and a photographer second.

One point I would agree to, though ...

It could be said of the D7000 that it shares one treat with the D3, which is a to small buffer size in relation to its frame rate capability

(Which was fixed in the D3s, btw)

I would agree on that.

If being baby-anything, the D7000 is more of a baby-D700 (which make the numbering all the more interesting ...) After all, the D700 is a high end, but all out full stop pro model with FX, the same could be said of the D7000 and with DX. Both are sort of "high end enthusiast" models for their respective sensor size. A future D400 would on the other hand be a much more likely "baby D3/D3s" candidate.

From the history cabinet: When releasing the D3 and D300 back in 2007 Nikon actually at several times during the press event mentioned the D300 being a "baby D3" and said that this relationship was much stronger then between D2x and D200 (where the latter eventually got the nickname "baby D2x").

I think it is because everybody is tired of waiting for the Baby D4 and then the D7000 will be the baby's baby???

Ah, we are getting into grandchildren now ... Then which models are cousins, nephews, aunts etc?

Tired of waiting? A D4 and very probably a D400 (or whatever they choose to call them) is rather likely to appear in August, right on schedule so to speak (judging from Nikons model history throughout the digital era).

August is a good month to be born, I will have to photograph the happy event with my D200!!

Surely it's a baby D3x

The resolution of the D7000 is closer to the D3x than any other nikon camera. It's high iso performance is close too along with it's af performance. At least that's what I found when comparing it with the D3x and D3s for bird photography.

The D7000 seems to be a fulcrum for debate. What's in a name? A name by any other... -Bill S
