Nikon D7000 Time-lapse

Recently I managed to get my hands on a Nikon D7000. I spent every waking minute getting to know this camera.

The D7000 is said to be the next version of the D90. For the least part it is targeting the same market. The D7000 comes with a 39 focus points, which is a great deal more than the 11 that is set on the D90. The D7000 comes with a newly developed DX-format CMOS sensor.

Two huge features for time-lapse photography on the D7000 are the double SD card slots, which means more images can be captured across two cards, and the built in Intervalometer. Both of these features were missing on the D90. With a built in intervalometer, this means you can perform time-lapse photography right there on the camera for the D7000, such a handy feature with no need to use a camera remote or tether to a laptop.

The D7000 has an amazing picture control feature allowing you to set various adjustments to pictures right there on the camera. The D7000 also carries your standard D-lighting adjustments onboard the camera.

Video on the D7000 is impressive to say the least. Although the auto focus while filming a moving subject is not the greatest. Hopefully they will fix this with some firmware upgrades.

Having trouble viewing the video, view it here.

    Do some research before you buy. Emerging issue with oil spots on the sensor. Have had mine to Nikon 4times and still not resolved. They even replaced once and it happens in replacement unit

      Wowsers, never experienced that issue.

  3. […] is just a short touching base on the HDR aspect of timelapse on a D7000. The good news is it can all be done on the camera of the D7000. Combine the bracketing and the […]
