Hi all.
remember me?
I posted here about 2months ago about the fact that I couldn't decide
on which camera should
I get.
Well I am glad to tell you all that I decided and bought a brand new:
Nikon D7000 with 18-105 MM Lense and an SB700.
So far I am very happy with it.

Jsut one question about the auto focus:
can I change the frame of the auto focus points?
I don't mean the system it self , 39 ,9 ETC..
I mean the frame where the auto focus points are at.

Heey, glad you made your decision!

You can't "move" AF sensors about though, it's a fixed grid, and you can select which ones you want to use.

Congrats on the purchase, not sure what you mean by "can I change the frame of the auto focus points?" you can change the point of focus by using the centre control to any point, to bring it back to centre press ok.


Cheers,

Congratuations! I want to buy Nikon D7000 as well, but I don't kown is the quality of it is good or not, now as if you bought it, maybe you can give me the answer.


I really love the Image quality in the D7000 and I love how good the metering is, and how accurate the colour reproduction is on the camera.

My only dislike which is borderline hate - which made me return my D7000 after 3 hours of use and get a 7D was that its useless for Sports.

In RAW - it only gives you 2 seconds of burst mode at 7fps before it changes to 1 frame a second
In HQ Jpeg it only shoots for 4-5 seconds at 7fps before it slows to 1fps.

The buffer is a joke and makes the 7fps of the camera pointless.

BUUUUUUT

OMG the Image Quality is so good. The low light ability is GREAT. The High ISO ability is GOOD! The LCD screen and the menu system, is great... Just, dont use the High continous shooting mode too much. If you dont shoot high speed, then get it.

Sorry to hear of your disappointment, someone here posted a report of faster speed on the D7000, the conclusion was the type of card used, he used a class 10 for the test. I imagine this would be the same for all makes of camera. I personally found shooting athletes with a class 10 card, 6fps was to fast as there was practically no difference in the burst.


Cheers

Im not talking about the burst, Im talking about hte buffer.... and yes I had a class 10 card. I think Gordon talks about this huge oversight in his test. Otherwise, Fan-bloody-tastic camera.

If the D7000 did not suit you, you have resolved it, have fun with the new camera.

Cheers
