Gordon,

I just wanted to say I love your multi-location Vimeo HD video review I just watched on the Nikon D7000! It's been a while since I've been on the site and I continue to be blown away by your always excellent video reviews, especially your total and thorough explanations - and now the new(?) format of presentation.

Keep up the great work - you are the beacon of light to us mere mortals out here!

Thanks Thumper!

They're a lot of work with minimal return, so I can only afford to do a couple a year now.

Gordon's reviews are great, in fact, it's how most of us discovered Cameralabs. It takes effort to make them though, that's why (as Gordon mentioned) he only does a few a year.

Gordon,
Just got D7000 so your reviews are terrific for me while getting familiar with the camera. But I have noticed that the camera seems to shift exposures very noticeably. I can even see the shifting in your shot of the hang glider shot from the tram location. Only had the camera for a couple days, but would like to know what settings will eliminate that problem.

Read the review of Thom Hogan for the solution to exposure problems.

Thanks. Read it top to bottom. And while I'm not that technically involved, I did appreciate much of his review.
So I feel pretty good about my decision to buy the camera.
But I must have missed how to fix the tiny shifts in exposure that the camera exhibits while shooting video.
Take a look at the shot in Gordon's review of the hang glider and you'll see the shifts.
Still would like an explanation on a fix. I guess staying on manual everything should fix the problem, but the kind of shooting I do calls for auto settings most of the time.

Just made a small donation via paypal - hope it goes someway to helping you keep up the video reviews.

Cheers

Ian
