Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor (new feature!)
At the heart of the D7000 is a DX format image sensor of 16.2 effective megapixel CMOS, optimally designed to gather more light quality by NIKKOR strong. With 14-bit A / D (12-bit selection) operating in the sensor gives stunning pictures D7000 which are richer in tone and detail than previously possible DX format without sacrificing speed or the recording efficiency. Combine these with agility to the DX-format and signing of 1.5x Telephoto Lens potential focal length, and you can begin to see how this kind of power shooting can take you.
New image processing engine “EXPEED 2″
D7000 uses a new image processing “EXPEED 2″. This is achieved through the most effective noise reduction, better color reproduction, image processing speed and better performance with film processing and efficient energy-saving chip smaller engine than the D90. And there is no loss of burst frame rate even with high ISO noise, or D-Lighting enabled.
Wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 6400
ISO sensitivity range of the D7000 is wide, from 100 to ISO 6400 at normal setting, and may be increased to Hi 2 (equivalent ISO 25600). It delivers sharp images with minimal noise while preserving the resolution even at high ISO settings. The D7000 can choose a shutter speed and expand options for creating low-light situations and scenes of sports without worrying about noise in the image-degrading.
Active D-Lighting with refined image processing
Nikon’s exclusive Active D-Lighting helps preserve detail in highlights and shadows of images taken in high contrast scenes, such as those that are backlit. ADL levels can be selected from Auto, Extra high “,” High “,” Normal “” Low “and” Off “. The D7000 uses a new system image that produces less color phase shift, even if the level is increased ADL. In addition, he is ready to high speed, real-time processing with high accuracy in the imaging pipeline. The D7000 also allows you to mount up to 3 photos.
