@ the_drew

Do you realise that this camera and the "D800" by which I imagine you mean the D700 replacement are completely different cameras.

You wrote:
The camera is pretty much perfect for my needs except for the buffer problem.


Meaning that the D700 probably isnt the right camera for you. That sounds like the D300(s) is the right camera to be honest.

Also, I wouldnt wait on a camera. If you want/need a camera now, buy one now. I wouldnt expect a D700 replacement to come out before a D3S replacement as presumably they will share a sensor. And the D3s replacement is scheduled for August. So the "D800" fairly likely in my opinion wont be released in 2011.

:roll: Why do people still say that a D4 + D800 release can not be combined. There are two completely different markets for a D3 and D700, so why would this be different with a D4 and D400 release? I would even say that a D800 NEEDS to come out with a D4 release because people wanting such a camera will only get more angy that they can not get their wanted camera. They will probably not buy a D4 in the mean time. The longer you keep them waiting the more sales you lose.

And indeed, on topic, the D800 is a whole different world from a D7000 and D300(s), so I would never have said the camera is right if you actually look for a D700

I agree with you Wout, however judging from the style of previous Nikon flagship releases Id be very surprised if the D800 was released with the D4. Too much market overlap.

Looking back at the history, there isnt much yet to say for FX. And now the DX line even got refreshed bottom up, if we take the D5100 (same sensor as D3100) and D400 (same sensor as D7000) will arrive this year.

And that market overlap you speak of, I am not quite sure if it really is that big. The D700 is still a way different camera besides the AF sensor and 12MP sensor compared to the D3.

By history, Im taking into account 35mm bodies as well. Nikon isnt only as old as its FX line.

I do agree with you though about the market overlap, but Id still be still be surprised if the D800 is released before the D4. Unless it is just a D700S or D700X with the D3s or X respectively's sensor. But I thought that might happen last year.

It wont be called a D800 before a D4 as Nikon is stubborn enough to have their cameras named either on an even or odd basis leading from the flagship.

Ie going back in time:

Flagship D3 - Line up is D3000, D5000, D90, D300, D700, D7000 (all odd)
Flagship D2 - Line up is D40, D80, D200
Flagship D1 - Line up is D70, D100
Flagship F5 - Line up is F100

etc I cant remember

Anyway back on topic...

Is it harmful to take back to back 20minute 1080p videos clips?

Depends on the outside conditions. If it is a warm temperature outside you may cook your sensor at some moment and thus creating hot pixels. But I think you should be capable of doing a couple of 1080 videos in a row at ISO 100-200.

I'm considering the D7000 now to replace my Olympus. It's a pity I have to buy new lenses as well and that's something that makes me doubt.

The 16-85 would come close to what I have now, but for tele I'm not sure yet.

The back focus issue annoys me a bit as well, even though it can be corrected. A camera with this price tag simply should not have any issues like this. I have to check if the camera remembers the adjustment settings of several lenses.

you can set it for separate lenses or body fixed. Back focus is highly depending on body and lenses used, not all D7000's and lenses react the same.

Issue: My D7000 doesn't autofocus beep in PASM mode, but will beep in AUto mode.

It's turned on int he menu and I even see a little music note in the LCD screen. Any idea what's going on?

You dont have the AF setting put to AF-Single (Don't know if it should beep in AF-Auto)

Does the D7000 (or d3100) overheat when in movie mode like the d90 did?

I'd really like to know and can't find my answers anywhere on the web.

I think I read it can record for up to 20 minutes but whether that's a limitation due to file size or sensor heat I don't know. I'll see if I can cite that.

I've had no problems with overheating before, but so far my longest videos have been 5 minutes or shorter.
