Nikon (http://www.nikonusa.com) has introduced the D7000 digital SLR camera, which can take 16.2-megapixel photos and full HD (High Definition) movies. It sports a new 16.2-megapixel CMOS sensor with low-light ability that the folks at Nikon say have never before seen in a DX-format (APS-C) camera.
The new EXPEED 2 image-processing engine fuels the enhanced performance of the D7000 along with a new 39-point AF system and 2,016 pixel RGB 3D Matrix Metering System to deliver high image quality in a variety of shooting conditions. Additionally, the D7000 D-SLR provides full 1080p HD movie capability with full-time auto focus (AF).
The D7000 D-SLR camera will be available throughout the U.S. beginning mid-October at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$1,199.95 for the body only and $1499.95 for body and lens outfit that includes the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens.
