D7000

Postby Andy » Sat Aug 18, 2012 4:42 pm

While I was in Grand Teton NP, I had a minor heart failure/moment, when my beloved D700 started acting up. It turned out that the aftermarket batteries I had purchased were the culprit. But with no other camera (other than my P&S), I had nightmares of 3 full days in one of God's most beautiful creations (after Vermont, OF COURSE), without a camera. So, I immediately came home and explained to my wife how important it was to have a backup camera.

After lots of research and thought, I settled on the D7000 which is a theoretical "step down" from the D700 "pro" model I carry. But based on my research, the most important part -- the "power plant" (sensor/processor combination) is pretty darn impressive, and I bought it as a backup. This morning, I finally got out and got a chance to "fumble" around with it. I was reminded how important it is to thoroughly familiarize yourself with the equipment before an important shoot. Here's a result I kind of like. This granary and barns belong to one of my largest, best and favorite farm clients here in Michigan:

I am pretty impressed with its general capability. Will be interested to check on how it works in low light situations

Your wife didn't just offer to buy you some extra batteries? Man, you are good!

Nice picture and let us know how the breaking in period goes.
