Nikon Coolpix S4300 Digital Camera Review, Sample Images, Photos in NYC

The new Nikon CoolPix S4300 is a ultra-compact point and shoot with a slim design and a touchscreen interface. This pocket-sized and highly portable digital camera is less than 1 inch thick and weighs less than 5 oz. It has a modern design and a sleek rounded body available in 5 colors – plum, red, black, white or silver (the silver has more of a champagne color finish). While it would make a great accessory for the ladies, it isn’t so overtly feminine as to classify it as a female-only camera.  As far as appearances are concerned, it has mass appeal!

A main feature of the Nikon Coolpix S4300 is its bright 3.0 inch LCD touchscreen interface. Personally, I’m not a fan of touchscreen interfaces on cameras but I can usually deal with it if the camera makes this function optional. Unfortunately, with the S4300 the touchscreen interface does not come optional (it’s touch or nothing) and I had to clumsily work my way through it. 

On the other hand, the Nikon S4300  redesigned its menu so now its touchscreen offers big icons rather than scrolling lists. One of my contentions with touchscreen only cameras is the difficulty of usage when wearing gloves in cold weather. While Nikon’s change to icons instead of scrolling eliminated this issue, it actually created an entirely different problem that I discovered when exploring the Nikon S4300 scene mode menu. 

For example, when accessed the Scene Selector menu, my immediate inclination was to skim through the various icons displayed on screen. This desire to scroll through the various options was because the icons were just images with no text and many of the icons were unfamiliar to me.  I made the mistake of pressing one of the icons thinking that some sort of information about what the icon represented would  appear on screen. Instead, it closed the Scene Selector menu and immediately adjusted  and applied my cameras settings to whichever mode I pressed.  
Basically, if you are not familiar with what each icon represents you have to press the “help button” (the button with the question mark on the top-right hand side of the scene menu) which takes you to the Scene Selector Help Section.  Once in the Scene Selector Help Section, you have to individually press each icon to find out what it is and how it works. To add to this inconvenience is the fact that you cannot choose the Scene Mode you want while you are in the Scene Selector Help Section, you can only find out what the icon represents. In order to choose the Scene Mode you want, you would have to go back to the Scene Selector Mode.
And yes, some of the S4300 Scene Mode icons are self-explanatory but I’ve tested many point-and-shoots  and some of the S4300 scene mode icons were unrecognizable to me. Chances are that if you do decide to purchase the Nikon CoolPix S4300, you will eventually familiarize yourself with each of the icons and their functionality.

However, for the eager point-and-shooter who’d like to buy and shoot in a matter of minutes, you are better off using the first button on the Scene Selector Mode – Scene Auto Selector – and the Nikon Coolpix S4300 will automatically and intelligently select the optimal settings for whatever scene you are shooting in.

In addition to touchscreen settings and controls, autofocus and metering options are combined into a Touch AF/AE mode, which uses the touchscreen to place the autofocus and metering point pretty much anywhere in the frame (the outer edges aren’t allowed). Power, shutter release, video record/pause, shooting mode and playback have dedicated hardware buttons, and there’s the usual zoom lever on the right hand side of  the camera for the generous 6x optical zoom function – another desirable feature the Nikon Coolpix S4300 comes equipped with.

The Nikon Coolpix S4300 performance is pretty good as well. There is a bit of a response delay when changing between functions such as from video to photo (and vice versa) and even when turning the cameras power on. Despite this minor lag time, the S4300 works like a charm. 

Another notable Nikon Coolpix S4300 quality is that while other manufacturers claim all you have to do is point and shoot to take great looking images with about virtually every camera they put on the market, the Coolpix S4300 actually proves this to be true.
On the day I tested the S4300, I wasn’t exactly in the photography spirit and yet, I still managed to get a variety of aesthetically pleasing shots even if my composition wasn’t the best. I accredit this to the Nikon S4300’s  high resolution 16 megapixel CCD sensor paired with its 6x wide-angle optical zoom NIKKOR glass lens. Additionally, Nikon’s true glass lens boasts a focal length from 26-156mm, a versatile range that can zoom in for portrait shots and has a wide angle to cover beautiful landscapes. 
Additionally, The Nikon S4300 has 20 Scene Modes, including Scene Auto Selector, so you can leave it to this intelligent camera to automatically determine what type of photo you’re taking and adjust the setting to assure a flawless photo.

As a avid fan of macro photography, I am always eager to see how well the macro capability is of the new camera I’m testing. To my dismay, the S4300 had a difficult time focusing even when trying both of its macro mode features – Close-up Scene Mode and Auto Mode with Macro Function enabled. The flash being on, off or on automatic made no difference in the clarity of the close-ups either. It was frustrating especially in comparison to the point-and-shoots with superb macro functionality that I’ve been testing recently.

Close-up Scene Mode

Auto Mode with Macro Function

In-camera image editing, special effects and scene modes are among my favorite features of point-and-shoot cameras. The Coolpix S4300 includes 7  in-camera editing functions including Crop, D-Lighting, Glamour Retouch, Quick Retouch, Rotate Image, Skin Softening and Small Picture. 
Scene modes include Back Light, Beach, Close Up, Copy, Draw, Dusk/Dawn, Fireworks Show, Food, Landscape, Museum, Night Landscape, Night Portrait, Panorama Assist, Party/Indoor, Pet Portrait, Portrait, Scene Auto Selector, Snow, Sports, Sunrise.

These features enhance and add a edge of creativity and style to your shots. Below are several Nikon Coolpix S4300 sample images using some of its various scene modes and filters.
An oddity I observed while using the Nikon S4300 was when using certain scene modes/effects such as the Sepia filter, my subjects would appear blurry when viewing them through the LCD screen. However, once I pressed the shutter button and captured my image, my images would appear vivid and clear on screen.

The Nikon Coolpix S4300 also comes equipped with 720p HD video mode which was clear even while zooming. However, the first time I attempted to zoom while video recording, there was a slight jolting that occurred but after that firs time, video recording was smooth sailing.

The Nikon Coolpix S4300 takes a SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card (sold separately) and is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (included with camera). 
Overall, the Nikon Coolpix S4300 is a decent compact digital camera. Although there were a few functions I found fault with, the Nikon Coolpix S4300 has key features like a 16 megapixel image censor, 6x optical zoom and touchscreen capability that make it well worth its already budget-friendly and affordable price.
The Nikon CoolPix S4300 Key Features:

  • 16MP High Resolution CCD Sensor
  • 6x Wide-Angle 26-156mm (Equiv) Zoom Lens

Wide-Angle, High Power 18x Compact Zoom-NIKKOR Glass Lens
Producing precision camera optics is at the heart of Nikon’s proud photographic heritage. The COOLPIX S9100 is no exception. Its high quality 18x wide-angle optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens offers impressive telephoto coverage (25-450mm) with outstanding color capture and razor-sharp results. This is the only lens you’ll ever need for exacting portrait studies, scenic panoramas, and challenging compositions. Plus, we realize that shooting from the roof of an SUV, a gondola overlooking the Swiss Alps, or a whale-watching boat in Iceland can get bumpy. That’s why we’ve included a five-way, Hybrid VR Image Stabilization system with the COOLPIX S9100. It uses sensor shift in combination with electronic stabilization features to minimize the effects of camera shake, so you can say goodbye to unwanted streaky or blurred images.
Bring Back Full HD (1080p) Movies of Your Treks Around the World
Sharing your travel adventures-or posting them on the Internet for friends and relatives-is even more exciting with full HD (1080p) movies. While the COOLPIX S9100 can capture hundreds of memorable still images for you to easily print and save, its moviemaking features bring a safari, ski trip, cruise, or balloon ride to life. One touch of the movie recording button and you’ll be shooting 1080p HD movies-complete with stereo sound. Plus, optical zoom and auto focus functions will bring you close to the action. You can even shoot still images while recording movies, or experiment with special effects like fast or slow motion. When the time comes to share your movies, simply use the in-camera playback feature or the convenient HDMI-CEC output for quick hookup to an HDTV or computer.
Create a Scene and Get the Most Out of Every Shot
Choose one of 19 Scene Modes to assure optimized camera settings for specific scenes. Or, with Scene Auto Selector, the camera automatically selects the most appropriate mode from among seven choices for you. Plus, Nikon’s amazing Easy Panorama mode allows you to pan the camera in any direction as it automatically detects, combines and assembles your shots into one seamless panoramic image.With Night Landscape mode, capture high quality images at night. It shoots a series of consecutive shots and composes them into a single, brilliant image. Night Portrait mode takes outdoor portraits against bright backgrounds and combines multiple shots to capture the essence of night scenes. And, the COOLPIX S9100’s Backlighting HDR Mode automatically provides optimum exposures when you’re shooting backlit subjects.
Convenient Features
You’ll find Nikon’s Motion Detection feature to be important because it identifies moving objects and automatically adjusts shutter speed and ISO to assure crisp, blur-free images. When conditions conspire against you, Nikon’s Best Shot Selector automatically takes up to 10 shots and saves the sharpest image. ISO speeds up to 3200 will help you capture great shots in low-light. Blinking eyes and red-eye can ruin portraits. That’s why the COOLPIX S9100 includes Blink Warning. It also offers in-camera Red-Eye Fix that automatically corrects red-eye as you shoot and Skin Softening that smoothes skin tones. The COOLPIX S9100 also has Macro Shooting for shooting as close as 1.6 inches. And, when you’re in remote regions, you’ll appreciate the camera’s 270-shot rechargeable Li-ion battery.
In-Camera Special Effects That Don’t Require Post-Shot Processing
You don’t want to be hassled with post-shot processing, which is why Nikon equipped the COOLPIX S9100 with in-camera special effects.

Nikon‘s D5100 Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm VR Lens delivers a galaxy of professional features in a consumer digital camera. A high-resolution 16.2MP DX format CMOS sensor and an EXPEED 2 image processing engine guarantee superb quality and high performance. The 3″ vari-angle tilting LCD monitor allows you full freedom in composition with sparkling 921,000-dot resolution. Full 1920 x 1080p video with full-time autofocus (for tracking subjects in motion) and stereo sound (using optional microphone) is always available with in-camera editing and creative controls to bring out your inner director.
The AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens is an ultra compact, lightweight standard zoom lens that has a 3x focal zoom range and is ideally suited to compact Nikon digital SLR cameras with the DX size sensor. Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR Nikkor lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 3 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible. This lens offers the most basic zoom range in the DX lens series, an equivalent focal length in 35mm terms of 27-82.5mm. It will conveniently cover everything from landscapes to tight indoor portraits to standard snapshots.
The D5100’s Effects mode provides a dazzling array of special effects for putting your own individual stamp on all of your images–still photos or video. Selective Color, for instance, isolates any color within a scene, and Night Vision captures details in places too dark for your own eyes. High Key effect will create bright, glowing images filled with atmosphere and mystery, or you can emphasize the mood of a scene using Low Key, or Miniature Effect–which produces a scene that looks like a miniature scale model.
With sensitivity ranging from 100 to 6400 ISO, you’ll be able to make photos and videos that are amazingly rich, even in low light. In-camera HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode will tame high contrast situations by automatically capturing multiple exposures of the scene and combining them for vastly improved contrast and low noise. A blazing fast 11-point autofocus system and split-second shutter response mean that you won’t miss photo opportunities waiting for your camera to catch up. The built-in speedlight has i-TTL for accurate, well-balanced flash every time.
With the Scene Recognition system, 420-pixel RGB 3D Color Matrix Metering II, 16 automatic exposure scene modes, and Active D-Lighting, your control over your photos and movies will be more precise and simple to carry out than ever. The automatic image sensor cleaning prevents dust from ruining any of your images.

Vari-Angle LCD Monitor
The new, large 3.0″ (7.5-cm) vari-angle LCD monitor opens horizontally up to 180˚ and flips up and down from +180˚ to -90˚. Now you’re ready to view, shoot and record your subjects from unique perspectives. Try a high angle for overhead shots, waist level for candid Live View and movie shooting, or a low vantage point for a look from ground level. You can also place the D5100 on a tripod or other stable surface and still see yourself while composing self-portraits. Thanks to high-resolution (approx. 921k-dot) and a wide viewing angle, the vari-angle LCD monitor lets you check your composition comfortably while using Live View or full HD movie.
Image Quality in a Class of Its Own
Incorporating the latest Nikon D-SLR technologies such as the 16.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 2 image processing engine, the D5100 delivers outstanding image quality.
Create Incredible Movies–Full HD (1,920 x 1,080/30p) Movies
The D5100 delivers exceptional D-Movie performance with its full HD capability, full-time-servo AF (AF-F) and precise exposure control. In-camera movie editing and sound recording capability (stereo with optional microphone) are also provided. Together with D-SLR advantages like beautiful background blur, high ISO sensitivity performance and extensive NIKKOR lens compatibility, movie-making potential reaches impressive new levels.
Instant, In-Camera Post-Production
The D5100’s numerous editing functions include Resize, NEF (RAW) processing and Filter effects, such as Skylight, Warm filter and Cross screen. Along with Quick retouch and Edit movie, there are additional features such as Distortion control and Fisheye.
11-Point AF System
The D5100’s 11 focus points, including a crosstype sensor, widely cover the frame and capture the subject sharply. When using 3D-tracking (11 points) mode, the camera works together with the Scene Recognition System to keep your main subject in focus even if the composition changes.
Exquisite Detail in Both Highlights and Shadows–HDR (High Dynamic Range)
When shooting extreme contrasts such as sunlit clouds and a foreground deep in shadow, it was once quite difficult to render both textures equally. Not anymore. With the HDR setting, the D5100 takes two shots within a single shutter release: one overexposed and one underexposed. The camera then combines the two images to reveal an extremely wide dynamic range, but with less noise and richer color gradation than ever before (use of a tripod is recommended).
Clean and Clear Images, Even in Low Light
The D5100 provides all the technologies you need to achieve excellent results even when available light is scarce. Its CMOS sensor offers a remarkably wide ISO range (ISO 100 to 6400) with reduced noise. This enables you to shoot at faster shutter speeds and capture scenes and subjects with less blur. Even handheld shots and full HD movies come out looking great in low light.
Intelligent Auto Pop-Up Flash
Vital for dark or backlit subjects, the D5100’s built-in pop-up flash automatically brightens your subject. Expect natural-looking results thanks to i-TTL flash control.
Selective Color
Select up to three colors to show in the image, and the rest will remain in black and white.
Autofocus for Sharper Subjects
The D5100 helps you focus by offering a choice of focus modes to match your subject matter – even when using Live View or shooting full HD movies. Simply use AF-F mode to keep the camera focusing automatically while recording. A new switch beside the mode dial activates Live View, and to start movie recording, simply press the dedicated button located next to the shutter-release button. You can do this while keeping a steady view of your subject.
Optimized Camera Settings
The D5100 has Scene Modes that match a diverse range of scenes. The five most popular modes can be found on the mode dial, while others can be selected by setting the dial to SCENE and rotating the command dial. Once you’ve decided, the camera automatically chooses the camera settings that will provide the best results. With Nikon’s Scene Modes, you will never have to worry about complicated camera settings.
Scene Auto Selector
If you are shooting still pictures using Live View with Auto or Auto (flash off), Scene Auto Selector will automatically select the most appropriate Scene Mode, choosing from Portrait, Landscape, Close up, and Night portrait. Leave it up to the D5100 to deliver optimum results, leaving you more time to concentrate on the shot.
Miniature Effect
Make distant subjects appear like miniatures by strategically altering the focus area. Miniature effect movies play back at high speed.
High Key
Create bright, glowing images filled with atmosphere.
Color Sketch
Make your images appear like colorful drawings. Movies shot in this mode play back like a slide show made up of a series of stills.
Silhouette
Capture your subjects in silhouette against bright backgrounds.
Low Key
Create dark, striking images with prominent highlights.
Night Vision
Take monochrome (black and white) images in extremely low-light conditions.
Balancing Light and Shade Beautifully–Active D-Lighting
Useful in a variety of situations, Active D-Lighting automatically renders the highlights and shadows of high-contrast scenes so that they appear more like how they are perceived by the human eye. Leave Active D-Lighting on Auto for effortless adjustment, or select the strength level according to your shooting conditions.
Clean and Clear Pictures–Nikon Integrated Dust Removal
Less dust means clearer images. Nikon’s exclusive system helps remove dust from the optical lowpass filter in front of the sensor and move it away from crucial components inside the camera.
Optical Viewfinder
Approx. 95% frame coverage – for a clear view and comfortable shooting without time lag.
Compact, Lightweight Design
The camera’s form fits naturally into your hands, with intuitive controls that make extended shooting easy and comfortable.
Low Energy Consumption
Efficient EN-EL14 battery lasts for approx. 660 frames per charge.
Imaging Toolbox–ViewNX 2
This simple and intuitive software helps you get the most out of your images and full HD movies. ViewNX 2 provides importing and browsing capability while also incorporating image-editing functions such as Resize, Brightness, Crop, Straighten and NEF (RAW) image processing. Its movie editing functions help you create your own original movies quickly and easily, and Nikon’s own image storing and sharing service, my Picturetown, works smoothly with ViewNX 2, allowing you to log in directly from the software for easy uploading without using a browser.
View Your Images on an HDTV–HDMI Output Interface
Enjoy pictures and movies on your television, and use the TV remote control unit to operate playback.
Quiet Shutter-Release Mode
Sometimes the sound of the shutter release may disturb your subject. Quiet shutter-release mode reduces the sound of the D5100’s internal mechanisms, by slowing the mirror movement speed at the moment the image is captured, for example.
Scene Recognition System
With the 420-pixel RGB sensor and CMOS image sensor working together, the D5100 is able to recognize your subject matter and optimize the auto exposure, autofocus, auto white balance and i-TTL flash control. The face-priority AF feature originates in this technology, as well.
Picture Control
Customize the look and feel of your photos to suit your taste with Picture Control. Choose from six settings: Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait and Landscape. You can adjust the settings and save them for future use.
Image and Movie Editing Functions
The D5100’s numerous editing functions include Resize, NEF (RAW) processing and Filter effects, such as Skylight, Warm filter and Cross screen. Along with Quick retouch and Edit movie, there are additional features such as Distortion control and Fisheye.

Nikon Coolpix P7100 Digital Camera Review and Photo Sample Images

Nikon Coolpix P7100 Digital Camera Photo Shoot in NYC From H and B Digital.com

Camera: Nikon Coolpix P7100
Mode: Auto

Product Highlights

  • 10.1Mp Resolution
  • 3.0″ Vari-Angle Monitor
  • NIKKOR ED Lens 28-200mm 35mm Equiv.
  • 7.1x Optical Zoom
  • EXPEED C2 Image Processor
  • 720p HD Movie Capture
  • 4-Way VR Image Stabilization
  • 3200 ISO
  • High-Speed Continuous Shooting
  • In-Camera Special Effects

The Nikon COOLPIX P7100 Digital Camera lets you take your creativity wherever you go. Whether you’re at a party, on vacation, or you simply want a lightweight option to carry around, the P7100 is ready to go wherever you go! While plenty of cameras can do that, they can’t all provide you with the same amazing versatility and creativity options that this compact Nikon can.

Before we even get to the in-camera special effects or the manual options, let’s consider that this “point-and-shoot” (technically anyway) has 10.1Mp of power behind it and a 1/1.7″ CCD image sensor. That sensor, along with the EXPEED C2 Image Processor, works to not only create beautiful and incredibly detailed images; the two ensure a fast and efficient camera. Often referred to as the heart of the camera, these two enable features like high-speed continuous shooting and the noise-reduction filter.
More than a still camera though, the P7100 also captures 720p high definition video with stereo sound. That translates into great looking and great sounding videos on your HDTV for the whole family to enjoy. Additional movie recording features include optical zoom control and auto focus.

Of course, the P7100 wouldn’t get you very far without a stellar lens. The 7.1x Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens doesn’t disappoint. With a 28-200mm (35mm equivalent) focal range you can go from wide-angle to telephoto without even blinking an eye. Those close-up shots and all the sweeping vistas your heart desires will be easily within your reach. The lens also works together with the camera’s 4-Way VR image stabilization system for clean, motion-free images.

While the hallmark of a pocket camera is the ability to shoot on fully automatic, Nikon knows you want to do more than that with the P7100. That’s why they gave the camera versatile manual controls. There’s even a front command dial so you’re fully in charge of operating the camera at all times. Other features, such as an ISO of 3200, bracketing options, and even a virtual horizon, ensure that you’ll get just the shot you want. Of course, the choice of four classic exposure modes (P/S/A/M) is essential to this type of shooting. Add the aforementioned in-camera special effects and other features like macro capture and HDR setting, and you’ve got one great little camera that puts the joy back into point-and-shoot photography.

Your Passion for Photography Doesn’t Take a Vacation
If you’re looking for a compact companion to your D-SLR gear for road trips and vacations, grab the Nikon COOLPIX P7100 and keep on shooting. This portable camera doesn’t compromise quality or creativity, delivering the versatility, performance and speed that keep you in the game. Get amazing photos and HD (720p) movies with intense detail powered by a large 10.1Mp, 1/1.7″ CCD sensor and Nikon’s imaging technology. Process every moment with faster performance-even minimize image blur with VR image stabilization. Then add in-camera special effects to take your photos in a new direction. You’ll keep the photography passion burning
Superior Nikon Image Quality: Large 10.1Mp 1/1.7″ CCD Image Sensor
Perfectly portable, the P7100 delivers high performance to ensure that images and movies astound you with incredible detail and sharpness. A large 10.1-Mp, 1/1.7″ CCD sensor minimizes image noise and faithfully renders superb color in everything from portraits to travel photos. Fast image processing powers through your most demanding needs for capturing spontaneous shots, frame after frame. The P7100 even minimizes the chance of a blurred shot thanks to VR image stabilization paired to a 7.1x wide angle Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens. Keep photography your non-stop passion with a non-stop camera
Capture the “Decision Moment”: High-Speed Performance
As a photographer, nothing is more important than capturing “the decisive moment.” And nothing is more essential than a camera that can grab the moment. The P7100 captures each photo with incredible responsiveness powered by Nikon’s EXPEED C2 image processing engine technology. Fire frame after frame the moment you turn on the camera-compose then shoot. Fast auto focus ensures images are caught in sharp detail. Go ahead, shoot in RAW for greater control. Get high-resolution photos or shoot HD movies with the compact, yet powerful P7100 in your pocket. Heed the creative call when the moment beckons
Pursue Your Creative Vision: Manual Control Puts You in Charge
You see an image a certain way. Pursue that vision. Don’t let your camera limit what you create. With the P7100, you control the camera’s functionality, which means you have the power to customize each shot the way you desire. The P7100 puts you squarely in the driver’s seat via dedicated controls for P/S/A/M and a multitude of camera functionality commands. Every exposure nuance is in your hands. Wish to personalize even more? Consider adding in-camera special effects such as the new Cross Process or HDR
Put Your Vision in Motion: 720p HD Movies with Stereo Sound
Put your vision in motion with HD movie recording, and make dazzling photojournalism, travel movies, even mini documentaries in HD 720p with stereo sound. The P7100’s versatile 7.1x wide angle Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens gives you control from wide angle to telephoto to macro. The director in you will love how easy and fun it is to create productions. Tell your own vision
A New Angle On Your World: Ultra High-Resolution Vari-Angle Monitor
The P7100’s 3″ Vari-Angle (921,000-dot) monitor not only delivers great viewing of in-camera still and movie creations, it also lets you take your creative passion to new levels. Whether working indoors or out, capture what you see from most any point of view. Adjust the Vari-Angle monitor, with its Clear Color Display and anti-reflection coating, to observe what the camera sees-even when you’re in the most unconventional position or stretching the limits to reach a unique angle

D7000 and AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens Kit
         

D7000 with AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VRThe D7000 is a new mid-class DX-format camera with a compact body loaded with a number of advanced functions.
As the D-SLR market expands, D-SLR users are becoming more diverse to include those who demand the ability to capture images with greater definition and image quality, those looking for more advanced shooting functions, and those looking for the ability to record movies with the rich power of expression that is only possible with SLR cameras.

The D7000 is a high-quality mid-class D-SLR that responds to user demands with a variety of the latest camera technologies and functions for high-quality, high-definition shooting, all in a durable, high-performance, yet compact body. Among its features are a new DX-format CMOS image sensor, Nikon’s latest image-processing engine, EXPEED 2, a new 2,016-pixel metering sensor, a new AF system that utilizes 39 focus points, and the D-Movie function that enables recording of full HD movies.

Nikon D7000 Features

 

New DX-format CMOS Image Sensor & New Image-processing Engine, EXPEED 2 – Enabling the Capture of High-definition Images with Superior Image Quality


The D7000 is equipped with a new Nikon DX-format CMOS image sensor and a new image-processing engine, EXPEED 2. The camera offers an effective pixel count of 16.2-million pixels and enables capture of high-definition images exhibiting superior image quality with extremely detailed rendering and rich tones with smooth gradations. With standard sensitivity range of ISO100 – 6400 and additional increases up to Hi 2 (ISO 25600 equivalent), the camera offers improved capability with shooting under dim lighting, such as in the evening or indoors, and also expands possibilities for expression with rapidly moving subjects.

EXPEED 2 is Nikon’s latest image-processing engine developed with the ideas, know-how and technologies regarding digital images that Nikon has cultivated over the years. EXPEED 2 enables faster image processing, a high level of noise reduction, better color reproduction characteristics, and reduced power consumption.

 

A Compact & Elegant Body That Offers Both Authenticity & Flexibility

A magnesium alloy has been adopted for the top and rear covers for increased durability in a size equivalent to that of the D90. All joints on the camera body have also been sealed to ensure a greater level of water and dust resistance.

 

A New 2,016-pixel RGB Metering Sensor

With 2,016 pixels, the new metering sensor developed for the D7000 offers twice the metering pixels as our previous high-end metering sensor. Prior to shooting, the 2,016-pixel RGB sensor acquires accurate information regarding the scene. That information is then reflected in autofocusing, automatic exposure, i-TTL balanced fill-flash, and auto white balance control for extremely faithful images.

 

A New 39-point AF System – An AF Sensor Module with 39 Effective Focus Points

39-point AF system

Adoption of the new Multi-CAM4800DX autofocus sensor module enables certain acquisition and tracking of the intended subject with 39 focus points.
Nine cross-type sensors at the most frequently used center of the frame allow for certain acquisition of the intended subject.
In addition, the number of active focus points can also be limited to 11.

 

Superior Subject Acquisition and Tracking Performance

Depending upon the scene or subject, the AF-area mode can be selected from Single-point AF, Dynamic-area AF, 3D-tracking and Auto-area AF. Wide focus areas containing a large number of focus points work together to accurately acquire and track the subject
