In today’s “Deal of the Day” (http://amzn.to/1voFslh) you can get Nikon’s outstanding D7000 camera with 18-55mm lens for $300 off. This brings the total price to $649, an excellent deal for a top notch DSLR kit. We have carried a D7000 on our RV travels and have been very pleased with its performance.
The Nikon D7000 is an enthusiast level DSLR. It contains an excellent 16.2 MP DX image sensor, boasts a body made of magnesium , and is weather sealed to protect against the elements. This weather sealing helps give the body exoskeleton a rubbery grip.
The Nikon D7000 is a substantial piece of equipment that feels great in the hands. This is not a chunk of lightweight plastic; it’s an impressive photographic tool that’s crafted from metal.
With a high speed setting of frames per second, the Nikon D7000 offers continuous shooting up to 100 shots. This makes it useful for taking pictures of wildlife.
Want to shoot video? The Nikon D7000 shoots beautiful video in full 1080p HD. The camera offers a form of full time autofocus. However, be aware that autofocus on a DSLR can be a little noisy during video. It’s not exactly the same as autofocus with a dedicated video cam.
Many photographers consider the Nikon D7000 to be a modern DSLR classic. It’s the type of camera that many place in the “prosumer” category since it offers many nice features that originated in Nikon’s professional cameras.
This kit includes the 18-55 lens, which is an excellent walkabout lens with a useful focal range.
