Full HD movie-recording function: D-Movie with enhanced operability and image quality

The D7000 offers high-image-quality full HD movie recording of 1,920 x 1,080/24p. You can shoot creative and beautiful movies taking advantage of shallow depth of field and a variety of interchangeable NIKKOR lenses. As with Live View, contrast-detect AF is possible. And if you set full-time-servo AF (AF-F) for AF servo mode and subject-tracking AF for AF-area mode, AF area tracks even a moving subject continuously and three-dimensionally.

External stereo microphone compatible

During movie shooting, the D7000 lets you record not only monaural sound with the built-in microphone, but also stereo recording using an optional external microphone. You can also select the sensitivity level for either the built-in or external microphone, choosing from auto, high, medium or low. Select low for scenes in louder environments, such as a concert hall; high for quieter environments, with more delicate sounds, such as a murmuring stream. An external microphone also allows you distance it from any sound generated by the camera such as lens movement during autofocus shooting, or VR operation when the VR function is activated.

In-camera movie editing functions

Easy in-camera movie editing is possible without a PC. You can delete unwanted parts by choosing the start or end point by frame, and save a selected frame as a JPEG image.
