We've just posted our first set of test shots for the Nikon D7000 digital SLR camera, straight from the lab!
The heart of the Nikon D7000 is a newly developed, DX-format CMOS image sensor with 16.2 effective megapixel resolution, coupled to Nikon's latest-generation EXPEED 2 image processor. The pairing allows the Nikon D7000 digital SLR camera to provide ISO-equivalent sensitivities from 100 to 6,400, expandable as high as ISO 25,600. The D7000 also sports a newly developed 39-point autofocus system with nine cross-type points, and a new 2,016 pixel RGB metering sensor. The Nikon D7000 offers Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) movie recording with external stereo microphone connectivity, and a viewfinder said to provide ~100% coverage. Power for the Nikon D7000 is supplied by a newly specified EN-EL15 lithium-ion battery pack, and the D7000 is also compatible with an optional MB-D11 portrait / battery grip. Images in RAW and JPEG formats, and movies in .MOV containers, are stored on dual Secure Digital card slots compatible with the latest SDHC and SDXC types.

Stay tuned for more test shots in the coming days!
