Of all the cameras introduced over the last few weeks, the most exciting & anticipated new entry would have to be the new Nikon D7000, a camera body that incorporates a 16.2Mp CMOS sensor, their Expeed 2 processor, a  3.0" LCD screen and the ability to record 1080p 24FPS  full HD movies. Initially thought to replace the D90, which has been their most popular DSLR, it's actually an upgrade that fits in between the D90 and their D300s and is priced appropriately (The D90 & D300s will remain in their camera lineup). The D7000 digital SLR camera is designed to fulfill the needs of passionate photographers who demand exceptional performance, reliability and unprecedented levels of control and versatility in a compact form factor. Engineered as an ideal balance of durability and functionality, the D7000 features a multitude of new enhancements and updated Nikon technologies to help photographers produce exceptional photos and full 1080p HD (High Definition) movies. Continuing the tradition of innovative technology that began with the revolutionary D90, the first digital SLR to capture HD movie, the D7000 features a new 16.2-megapixel CMOS sensor with low-light ability 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 groundbreaking new 2,016 pixel RGB 3D Matrix Metering System to deliver amazing image quality in a variety of shooting conditions. Additionally, the D7000 provides full 1080p HD movie capability with full-time auto focus (AF), enabling users to capture their world with both striking still and moving images. Dual SD card slots are also featured for added versatility. We expect to recieve our first shipment of D7000s by mid-October with an MSRP of $1199.95 for 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. We hope that Mike Lopez, our Nikon rep will have a D7000 along with other new Nikon cameras to display when Nikon hosts our last Tent Show weekend on October 22nd-23rd.

With Photokina starting tomorrow (9/21), we anticipate some more new camera intros, and we'll be sharing the most prominent ones with you this coming week.
