Nikon today announced the new D7000 digital SLR camera, taking its place above the D90 but just below the flagship D300S, in the hierarchy of Nikon DX-format DSLRs.
The Nikon D7000 utilizes a 16.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor powered by Nikon’s latest-generation EXPEED 2 image processing engine. It also boasts a weather-proof magnesium alloy body.
The D7000 features Nikon’s latest 39-point AF system with 3D tracking and 2,016 pixel RGB metering sensor, a 921K dot 3-inch LCD (darn, it does not swivel!) and full HD (1080p) movie recording with continuous autofocus.
The Nikon D7000 will start shipping middle of next month, with a price tag of $1,200 for the body only and $1,500 for the kit that includes the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens.
