Is D7000 full frame?(9 posts) (9 voices)
No. It is DX = 1.5 crop.
The D700 is full frame. And for Canon, it's the 5D.
^^"D" is used as Prefix for all Nikon Dslrs, and D is used as suffix in all Canon Dslrs
the big question should be : why is full frame important to you?
is it that the salesperson is trying to sell you a particular camera and is telling you that full frame is better.
full frame cameras ar bigger, heavier has less DOF and more expensive, and for most people, the advantages are not used. Features that are considered advantages could also be considered disadvantages.
as a matter of fact, the advantages and disadvantages of full frame [Fx] and APC [DX] depends on the type of photography you do most of the time, and even though people who are into FX would tell you that it is the better system, again, that is dependent on your type of photography.
I think it also depends on what lenses you own.
I know im looking forward to getting into Full frame for the following reason: I own a lot of old glass from my Nikon Film and early DSLR days (a lot of the lenses I bought when i had and used my d2h aren't DX), and ive always been annoyed by the cropping factor. On the other hand, the cropping factor is often what people are going for, so it absolutely depends on your type of photography.
I have owned camera format way beyond full frame 35mm DSLR. I think you are being seriously misled. I would take a very close look at casperwb's post in this matter. One beautiful thing about Nikon Rumors is that there are some very astute photographers here that do really see the whole picture and I for one owning a full frame DSLR (D700) with very large lenses end up using my DX format cameras a LOT more. In fact usually I see NO REASON to step beyond say a Nikon D7000. That camera is a fantastic bang for the buck! mirtos's post though does as casperwb answer should be very carefully evaluated for what you do or intend to do.
For my own use I would take the lighter and more capable camera in the field almost EVERY time. Therefore to saulty I am saying.....maybe you are being sold full frame when that might not be the ticket. Just take a look at the projected price of the upcoming D800! $4,000 for a body? No thanks I'd go for the $1,199 body of the D7000. There are some very nice lens to pair up with either the DX format or the full frame (FX).
The cheapest Fullframe is a N80 (and Fuji reala) Get a 14mm instead of a 21mm.
Not to be rude, but if you don't know the difference then you probably don't need either. And where did everyone come up with this advice?? They just asked if the D7000 was full frame, which it obviously is not. I was sure Niko would have locked this one down by now :)
Google can be peoples friend as well. 3 minutes on the Nikon and Canon sites would have told the OP the answer.
