  • I need the camera first!!

  • I’ll have to teach myself all about it until my body arrives…

  • I´m in Brazil, my body will just arrive in one month =(

  • haojz

    Amazon said they haven’t got any shipment in yet.

  • I wonder who will be reading all 348 pages of it! 😮

    • Anton

      Obviously the people that didn’t get their camera yet. 🙂

    We’re writing to let you know there’s been an unexpected delay in shipping your Nikon D7000 Digital SLR Camera.

    This camera has proven to have an extraordinary demand and we’re shipping orders as quickly as possible. At this time, we’re not sure of the exact date your camera will be shipped.

    We’re very sorry about this, and to make up for the inconvenience, we’d like to offer you a $25 discount. You don’t have to do anything; the discount will be applied to your account when your camera ships.

    We look forward to seeing you again soon.

    • I was just about to post that too! And also, Amazon shows “Temporarily out of stock.” for the D7000

  • JB

    I got one of those emails too. Going to wait it out.

    • jenna

      Got the exact same email, AND I ordered within the first few hours of pre-sale on September 15th!!! So frusturated right now!

  • mikeydeezey

    I also just got that message from Amazon. They musta just put it out to all the customers. btw- I ordered my d7000 body about three hours after the announcement on Sept 15th.

  • They’re offering the discount to prevent customers from cancelling all their orders and jumping over to Best Buy! 😮

    • edgar

      Too late!

  • I went to my local Best Buy here in Austin today, just to see if I could lay my hands on one, even though I knew I wasn’t going to buy it yet. At first the guy in the photo department had no idea what I was talking about, but then he checked the computer and said they had 10 in stock, and asked if I wanted him to pull one for me from the back. I declined, since they only carry the kit, and I have no need of that lens, but it seemed easy enough to snag one if I wanted it.

  • JB

    I don’t want the kit lens, there will be quite a few for sale pretty quickly 🙂

    The body typically trails the kits by about a month. But in this case, I’d be shocked to see any reasonable amount of D7000 bodies showing up before mid December. I hope I’m wrong, but one poster commented that Amazon had 2000 on pre-order before they changed the status to “out of stock”.

  • Funduro

    Thanks NR one more time. Will DL that puppy right now.

    • Funduro

      Page Xii Do not look at the sun through the viewfinder.

      It’s going to be like this until I get my body.

      Inserting the memory cards upside down or backwards could damage the camera or the card.

  • Funduro

    Oh look I found my favorite group u2 on the mode dial.

    Must call Doctor and order something for the separation anxiety.

    Any one got the address of someone that got their hands on one? I’ll pay good $ for the lead.

  • Fenst


    still no russian one?

    • Anton

      Once all the bugs are fixed, Nikon will release a perfect russian revision of the camera.

  • Dreuben

    Well what do you know!, page 155, interval timer… didn’t know that…

    • WoutK89

      Was already known to me from the day it was announced.

  • Karlosak

    According to the manual all the video frame rates (24p/25p/30p) are available in 1280×720, you just have to switch from PAL to NTSC and vice versa in the Video mode setting – this is good to know for European customers! See pages 60 and 237.

    On the other hand, it seems that the U1/U2 modes don’t remember shutter speed and aperture, what a pity… Could any of the fortune owners of D700 confirm this?

    • WoutK89

      If it doesnt remember, thats a thing right? So if you make a change to your favorite setting (by accident?) You still have your setting you like it.

      • WoutK89

        good thing*

    • tschaffan

      Karlosak, I might not understand your question. But when I save a favorite setting on U1/U2 it does remember shutter and aperture.

      • Karlosak

        Let me explain – I would like to quickly switch from e.g. 1/50 sec at F/2.8, ISO 800 to 1/2 sec at F/5.6, ISO 200. I would like to simply flip the mode dial (U1/U2) and be there – no fiddling with the aperture and shutter dials. Is that possible? Thanks for answer.

        • fordstr

          That is precisely how the U1 & U2 settings work. You set everything how you want it on either the M, A, or S selection, then save it to either the U1 or U2 spot. When you change the dial to your saved selection (say U1) it recalls everything as you set it. If you then change say the shutter speed, and flip back to one of the M,A,S, or P modes then turn back to U1, it recalls the settings as you SAVED them, not as they were last left. So if you save 1/60 f8 @ ISO 200 on your U1, then while shooting change it to 1/40, when next you come back to U1 it will still be 1/60 f8 ISO 200 until you save it differently.

          • Karlosak

            Thanks, good to know!

  • Kris

    I’ve read you can’t change aperture while in live view.. (p57)
    Somebody can confirm this?

    • fordstr

      While in Live View (in aperture mode) spinning the sub-command dial did alter both the aperture number and the shutter speed. However, the changes did not have any effect on the video, which leads me to say it cannot be changed. Need a non-G lens (with aperture ring on the lens) to change aperture while recording.

  • Greg Ferris

    and the HDMI doesn’t spit out a clean 1080 signal by the looks of it…

  • one question about the memory SD card to be used with the D7000, will a Class 4 card keep up with the 1080p video recording?

    • Funduro

      Class 6 or higher SD cards is the recommended min. for video otherwise recording can stop. Saw that note on a Nikon web page somewhere. Having two SD card slots and programing which and what for each is a excellent feature. I’ll be buying one class 6 16MB and class 4 32MB to start. Class 10 cards get into the hundreds easily. 🙂

  • Bryan

    So.. it does NOT look like the d7000 has the focus micro-adjustment options. Thats really really sucks. I cant find it anywhere in the manual. Chase Jarvis noted that his version did have this. Other sites have made reference to it. I see it no where in the manual. This is really really crappy news.

  • Bryan

    sorry.. i was wrong. its in the camera setup screen.. page 246 shows its there!


  • Phil hall

    Anyone know yet when they’re actually going to ship the D7000? I ordered mine 3½ weeks ago, and the retailer first told me it would ship in early October; then mid-October, and now they’re saying late October. I don’t think they really know for sure; they’ve just got their fingers crossed. Nikon has let the Fall foliage season slide by; what are they waiting for? Halloween? Thanksgiving? Christmas?
