Nikon D7000 review

For the opportunity Nikon D7000 Review many thanks to Igor

Review of the Nikon D7000 body. Near Vega-11U.

Review of the Nikon D7000 body. Near Vega-11U.

Nikon D7000 is a very unusual digital SLR camera. On the one hand, it has some indicators better than professional cameras Nikon D300, D300s, on the other hand: Nikon D7000 does not reach the professional level. Historically, the Nikon D7000 is difficult to attribute to one of two categories, therefore, I will dwell on this in more detail.

Signs of a Nikon D7000 indicating a professional level:

  • Compatible with old manual (non-studded) lenses AI-S. The camera works perfectly with any manual lens, even with non-native AI compatible.
  • The presence of two slots for memory cards
  • Save option 14-bit RAW File
  • Dustproof and waterproof
  • 100% frame coverage in the viewfinder, a clean viewfinder
  • The presence of over short excerptsequal to 1 / 8000s.

Signs indicating that the Nikon D7000 refers to amateur (amateur cameras)

  • At the camera part of the body is made of plastic. The case is not all made of metal alloy, as in older models D200, D300, D300s.
  • The camera does not support quick cards CF
  • Frame buffer total 9 (maybe 10) RAW shots
  • The burst speed is fixed and does not expand with the booster
  • Well, of course, the presence of automatic modes of use, as in a number of models Nikon D80, D90.
  • Camera does not allow saving uncompressed RAW file

I stand in solidarity with Nikon, which classifies the Nikon D7000 as an amateur camera. It so happened that the line of professional cameras is Nikon D100, D200, D300, D300s, D500. In turn, the range of cameras Nikon D70, D70s, D80, D90 has been improved and supplemented by Nikon D7000 cameras, D7100, D7200, D7500. You can see for yourself composed by me Nikon camera geneology chart. Therefore, the Nikon D7000 is simply an improved level of advanced amateur cameras, but not a professional line.

Review of the Nikon D7000 body. Redesigned shooting mode selector.

The most important thing in the Nikon D7000 for the photographer:

1. CMOS sensor in 16.2 megapixels DX format with crop factor 1.5x. The same matrix is ​​in Nikon D5100. The same number of megapixels in the flagship Nikon D4. The number of megapixels is not so importantbut the working range of ISO is 100-6400 and expands to 25.600. Believe the range ISO 100-25.600 - this is already serious. Moreover, we can say that at ISO 3200 you can very often get a satisfactory result. Funny, but Nikon released an amateur Nikon D3200which has as much as 24MP. True, the quality of pictures at high ISOs is much worse than full-frame cameras, such as D700, D3 etc.

Very similar to the fact that Nikon D7000 uses a matrix that Sony produces, the same matrix is ​​available in cameras

2. Burst speed 6 fps. It is worth noting that the D7000 did realize fast shooting with 14 bit RAW without losing the shooting speed. D300(s) loses shooting speed at 14 bit RAW, in fact D300(s) speed with 14 bit RAW is poor 2.5 fps. 6 fps for the Nikon D7000 is very good. I do not recommend chasing a rapid-fire camera, very often the rate of fire is not important at all. For example, in a studio, flashes are sometimes recharged within one second, and few people shoot faster than 2 fps. For home and leisurely photography I have enough Nikon D40 and 2.5 fps. But high shooting speed is important for reporting, unfortunately high speed requires a good buffer size. The buffer is where pictures are stored in the camera before being written to the memory card. An analogy can be drawn that the buffer is the camera's RAM, and the card is its hard drive. The Nikon D7000 has a small buffer, see below.

3. The number of frames in the buffer depends on the image recording format. What interests me most is the buffer when shooting in RAW format, and for maximum 14bit RAW quality with lossless compressionhe makes up 9 frames. With a shooting speed of 6 fps, the camera starts to slow down after the second second of shooting. You immediately understand that the D7000 is far from a professional camera. Here are other buffer metrics:

  1. JPEG maximum quality, quality priority with disabled ADL, Noise reduction, High ISO Noise reduction, etc. - 15 frames.
  2. JPEG maximum quality, quality priority with ADL, Noise reduction, High ISO Noise reduction, etc. - 11 frames.
  3. RAW 12bit lossless compression - 9 frames, the file weighs about 12MB
  4. RAW 12bit normal compression - 9 frames, the file weighs about 11MB
  5. RAW 14bit lossless compression (the absolute maximum quality for Nikon D7000) - 9 frames, the file weighs about 20MB
  6. RAW 14bit normal compression - 9 frames, the file weighs about 15MB

Frame buffer is one of the most important indicators of camera speed... Even my old lady Nikon D200 squeezes 21 frames of continuous shooting and gives as much as 4 seconds of shooting without brakes in a series of 5 fps. The camera buffer of the Nikon D7000 in RAW mode greatly disappointed, I don’t know what those who say about the professionalism of Nikon D7000 think.

4. Nikon D7000 has convenient help with tips, different shooting modes like “night portrait” or “sports”. The camera has a convenient photo editing system. For those who are too lazy to mess around with editing programs on a computer, the Nikon D7000 has an excellent image editor built in. Also, in addition to JPEG processing, the Nikon D7000 camera supports RAW processing.

5. The display of the camera is excellent, with 920.000 pixels. The display is very large and bright. Viewing images on the display is a pleasure. The same display is on Nikon D90, D300, D300s, D700, D3 etc.

6. The ergonomics of the camera is excellent. The additional display helps a lot. It is very convenient to configure the basic parameters for an external monochrome display. The external monochrome display has a backlight. U1, U2 modes allow you to save all the necessary settings and quickly switch between the settings of the camera U1 and U2.

7. Nikon D7000 supports AF lenses without built-in focus motor. For example, Nikon D7000 will work fine without motor cheap and high quality lenses. Nikon 50mm F1.8D, Nikon 85mm F1.8D, Nikon 70-210mm F4.0AF etc. And also, Nikon D7000 gives the chance to work with AI, AI-S and any other old lenses. For example, the camera can easily make friends with manual lenses Nikon 50mm f / 1.2 AI-s Nikkor, Helios-81H, and Nikon 100mm F / 2.8 Series E etc .. If you specify the parameters of the manual lens in the camera menu, then matrix metering will be available exposure... The camera can store 9 'non-CPU' lenses (the same number in the more serious D300s / D3s / D3X). Only the following DX cameras could work with old lenses: Nikon D200, D300, D300s. Nikon D7000 uses a unique focus module Multi-CAM 4800DX with 39 sensors (9 cruciform)which is the same as a full-frame camera Nikon D600... 39 focus points are enough for any kind of photography. Focusing accuracy and speed are highly dependent on the lens rather than the focusing system. And the camera has a new one 2016 pixel RGB sensor measuring exposure.

9. Viewfinder 100%. This means the following: what you see in the viewfinder when you zoom in is fully consistent with what will be in the photo. Typically, coverage is 95% of the frame. For example, Nikon D90 also 95% and often at the edges of the photo extra details appear, since they are not visible in the viewfinder. A trifle, but very nice.

Example photo on Nikon D7000

10. The camera can shoot video with a maximum quality of Full HD 1,920 X 1,080 (24p), while using a mono microphone (for stereo sound, you should buy a separate stereo microphone). The camera has automatic focus when shooting video, which they could not Nikon D90, D5000. The video is of sufficient quality (according to the reviews of my colleagues, I myself am not strong in video analysis). The maximum length of a video is 20 minutes. Of course, the camera has a Live View mode. In this mode, focusing is performed in contrast and is much slower in speed than normal focusing using the optical viewfinder and phase sensors. The Live View button is combined with the video recording button. In focus mode AF-C and with Live View turned on, the camera automatically monitors focus, even if the shutter button is not pressed.

11. The flash can work in command mode on system Nikon CLS. When using external flash units SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910 (or from third-party manufacturers) quick synchronization with shutter speeds up to 1/8000 is possible, this is very important when photographing with flash at slow shutter speeds.

12. A bunch of pleasant things: the shutter withstands at least 150.000 operations, the camera has a gyroscope, the ability to shoot at intervals, alignment (adjustment) of precise focusing and many others.

Personal impressions:

The camera is very good. The camera menu is very large, it is not so easy to figure it out. In the review, I touched only on vital points for the photographer, if you need to find some trifle in the settings, then the instructions will help.

In many ways, the Nikon D7000 is one of the best DX-format cameras. When they ask me which advanced camera I recommend, then Nikon D7000 is the best option.if the issue price does not play a role. In my hands, in my opinion, the camera looks more like Nikon D90than on Nikon D300s. Image quality: at a high level, however, you can only talk about matrix noise, color reproduction, etc., since the image itself forms the lens and at low distinguish one camera from another. Some of my colleagues video operators shoot video on the Nikon D7000, and it is for the sake of video that they take this camera. Also, very often the Nikon D7000 is very popular as a second camera with professional photographers.

Comparison with other, similar in functionality, cameras from Nikon

Nikon D90 VS Nikon D7000

The Nikon D7000 has a step higher ISO, and two steps higher maximum (extended) ISO. 4MP added. The viewfinder covers 100%. Support for manual lenses has been added, autofocus has appeared when shooting video, video quality has reached Full HD, and the shooting speed has increased by 1.5 fps. Another slot for memory cards has been added; the Nikon D7000 can use more capacious ones SD XC cards. The number of focus points has increased, exposure metering has improved, and a virtual horizon has been added. All in all, D7000 all better for the Nikon D90. Ergonomics and overall functionality are very similar. I do not recommend changing Nikon D90 to D7000.

Nikon D7000 VS Nikon D300, D300s

The D7000 beats the D300s at 6 fps in 14-bit RAW mode versus 2.5 fps in 14-bit RAW mode on the D300s. Also, the D7000 has 1 stop higher ISO sensitivity, better video with autofocus. But the D300s has a more robust body, more focus points (51 versus 39), support CF memory cards, higher burst speed, larger buffer and professional ergonomics. Nikon D300 performance is better for Nikon D7000. I do not recommend changing D300, D300s to Nikon D7000, and vice versa, D7000 to D300s.

Nikon D7000 has a younger brother, the continuation of the line - Nikon D7100.

In general, a review about Nikon D7000 can be written endlessly, the camera is simply full of different functions and settings. There are few photos in this review, since while I was testing and delving into the settings, the battery ran out and the charging was not given to me. Please note that the quality of photos depends very much on the lens and other important things when shooting.

  • Ivan

    Thanks for another interesting review. Now I know for sure that the d7000 is amateurish, but in the redone Nikon line.

  • Novel

    Nikon D300 VS Nikon D300, D300s
    The D7000 outperforms the D300s at 6 fps in 14-bit RAW mode versus 2.5 fps in 14-bit RAW mode on the D300s. Also, the D7000 has 1 stop higher ISO sensitivity, the best autofocus video. But the D300s have a more reliable body, more focus points (51 vs 38), support for CF memory cards, higher burst speed, larger buffer and professional ergonomics. I do not recommend changing D300, D300s and vice versa, D7000 to D300s.

    slight typo in the beginning

    • Arkady Shapoval

      corrected

  • River

    thanks for the review. reading such reviews thoroughly familiar with photographic equipment.

  • Vlad

    Nikon d300 is already the last century with its noisy matrix

    • I-79

      By the way: the matrix of the D300, despite the lack of video recording in the camera, is less noisy and has a higher DD than its successor D300s. “The last century” - unfortunately, neither what nor who stands still. But its capabilities (except for the sensor with 12 MP, which affects when printing on large formats and only) are still at their best. Even the D4 and Canon's flagships (apart from their excellent new FF matrices), the technical stuffing has not advanced far ahead of the outdated D300.

  • Grey

    And the fact that with the help of the booster does not increase the rate of fire_this is not so. +2 frames per second only if you use finger batteries and not native Akum.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      I apologize, are you saying that with the help of the D7000 booster it can squeeze 8 fps? I have not tried the booster, but at the office. site not a word about it.

      • Grey

        I watched reviews on YouTube. now I wanted to throw off the reference. I can’t find it as evil….

  • Alexey

    Honestly, a couple of months ago I was faced with the choice of buying a device, the D90 or D7000, but after reading many interesting and scary stories about color rendition, the D7000 still took the D90. For me personally, the video is not critical, but what is missing is the compatibility with manual glasses. Thanks Arkady, for the quality reviews of the equipment, and most importantly quite objective. For me as a novice user they have become very useful, and I think for many. Thanks again )))

    • Arkady Shapoval

      IM trying thank you.

    • Grey

      Well, I don’t know .. I am the owner of this device. and I do not agree with the problem of incorrect color rendering. it depends on the photographer. And how do you configure it, then it will show))

      • Arkady Shapoval

        I don’t worry about it at all. I still have to calibrate the printer.

    • Sychev Vladimir

      At first, after buying the NIKON D7000 I had to tinker, it is more complicated than the D80-D90, but now I am not overjoyed. Only one function of fine adjustment of autofocus lenses is worth something. And the multi-point focusing system is good when used properly. The picture is much more detailed, allows you to “sprinkle” without loss of quality. Noises are another story. Manages to get acceptable footage at ISO25600. Think about it: 25600. But you need to expose the frame well with exposure compensation +1 or more and set the white balance, since at these ISO colors the colors go to red. About poor color rendering - complete nonsense. In the settings it is necessary to set “AUTO 1 WITHOUT SAVING WARM TONES”. A bunch of settings for camera JPEG. There is one BUT: it is demanding on the resolution of lenses. Whale 18-105VR - no longer pulls. I bought fixes and 70-300VR - the picture is just a song. It's a pity to attach a file. As a result, we bought the SECOND NIKON D7000 carcass for PROFESSIONAL WORK.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        Thank you for sharing your experience.

      • Violetta

        Hello. I am looking at the D7000. Already read a lot by me. Can you explain what it means to demand the resolution of lenses?

        • for

          Violetta, forget about inexpensive zoom lenses with this camera. Or "fixes" or something from the latest zooms.

    • Anatoly

      the truth is that the Nikon D7000 has poor color rendering. or you’re still a beginner and haven’t set up the camera. just ask with that reason sana’s just wanted to buy this device.

  • Sergiy

    14 bit tse plus. And from the visibility of unconstrained RAW - minus. Vlasne, I'm streaming my D40 for the new one. I do not reject anything superficial.
    One hundred percent of the quality of the image. Batching unimportant photos on the D700 does not look like unmistakable photos on the D40 with a kit. And also take pictures on the D40 with a good view of the ... it is important to navigate the bulo to see the D40 can also.
    Hundreds of Soviet societies. Mayu Gelios-44, ale me, it's just scary to bring him to my number! Win such a brute vseredin! What is there only dumb: drank, mastilo, wind the little pieces of fotoplivki there know. If you know the boat without thinking about it, but now the word drank has become so scary.

  • Seryozha

    Good afternoon Arkady! I am the owner of this model, everything suits me in it since the 1st DSLR. Competitor to him with Kenon 60D or 7D?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Both devices compete, just like the D300s and D90 with the D7000

  • Gregory

    I recently bought D7000, I will say this, if you have creative ideas, a desire to embody them and a drop of brains)) this camera will help you capture the photos of your dreams. We are people who take pictures, not cameras ...
    The device is demanding on lenses. Have to fork out because whale is good only to understand what exactly you want to shoot.

  • ark57

    Thanks for the quality review.

  • Sasha

    and what kind of terrible stories about the color rendition of the D7000?

    • Sychev Vladimir

      About poor color reproduction - full nonsense or the machinations of competitors, set the correct white balance. But on the CANON 50D all colors are cold, like in a morgue. Someone like them.

  • Sasha

    is it worth selling d7000 and buying d300 well, or d300s please tell me please

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Do not be.

    • Ю

      D7000 is a toy with a good matrix and dull autofocus.
      D300S-device that does not fail, although the matrix is ​​worse

  • PP Vanya

    There are firmware + ext. settings.

    I have a booster, if very good. Interested in shooting a couple of times for the bill.

  • Orward

    Arkady, what is the real working ISO of the D7000? Those. then the highest value at which the camera is still able to get a normal picture without any noise?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      "Working ISO" is a very subjective measure, for some it will be 6400, and for someone already at ISO 400 there will be a lot of noise. 1200 is completely working.

      • Alexander

        please tell me And if we compare your opinion about the working ISO for the D7000 1200ISo, then what is the working ISO for you for the D90? I’m so - for myself, I estimate how much 7000 beats the 90th in noise. Thank you (all the same, I'm going to switch to 7000 - because of the much better exposure metering, autofocus, and also because of the working ISO - this is the main plus for me)

        • Arkady Shapoval

          D7000 with ISO is much better than D90

          • Alexander

            Well, if you draw an analogy, you said that for you 1200 is for 7000, and what is D90 for you? (I want to feel this “much” literally) thank you for your help

            • Vladimir

              The D90 has a working ISO 400, then noises that after 640 begin to kill any commercially oriented picture.

    • Sychev Vladimir

      I am satisfied with ISO1600, but enter a little exposure compensation at +0.7 - + 1

  • Lena

    Please tell me if it makes sense to change the D90 to 7000? Or is it better to wait and save up to 700?
    On d90 I do not have enough focus points, and it confuses that basically the maximum ISO 1000
    Of the lenses I use 18-105 / 3,5-5,6 and 50 mm / 1.4
    Already tried and I want to continue in the direction of shooting children portraits, weddings, reports (christening, holidays)
    Is it worth changing the camera or is it better to buy a good fast lens (can you advise which one)

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Not worth it. Better to buy a lens. I advise you to look towards 85 1.8 D \ G, 85 1.4 D \ G

  • Tatyana

    Tell Arkady (by the way, thank you very much for your work, interesting and instructive) I want to buy the first DSLR in my life. I just dream !!! I even graduated from photography courses. The first step. I plan to continue. I re-read the mountains info (probably like everyone who buys for the first time) I like Nikon D90 and Nikon D7000. I would like to master the camera and work as a photographer in the future. Like many people I have money (enough for d7000) Is it worth buying a d7000 or will it stop at d90? release. Sometimes I think. if zerk LCA first, what difference how to master the more advanced (and younger)))), or am I wrong? There is not much money to experiment and buy one or the other. I want one and for a long time. Thanks in advance for the answer.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      If there is no money, then D90 and a couple of decent lenses, if there is money, then D7000 and a couple of decent lenses.

      • Sychev Vladimir

        A very clever line. With two hands "FOR"

    • Sychev Vladimir

      Sorry for the lecture, but: prepare yourself for a decent cash investment to work as a photographer. Very soon you will realize that you need a decent camera flash, preferably with support for high-speed sync and TTL mode, a fast fast zoom lens like the SIGMA 17-50 / 2.8 with stabilizer, a simple fixed lens 501.8D or 35 / 1.8G, a pair of tripods (one for the camera, the other for an umbrella with an optional slave flash), good UV filters for lenses, a spare rechargeable battery, spare quick memory cards, lens cleaners, a handy photo bag, etc., etc. In total, you need at least 40-45 thousand more money. If I am not telling the truth, let them correct me on this forum.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        There is one amendment - this is not a forum, but just an article about the D7000. Thank you for your good advice.

      • for

        Vladimir, do not confuse a person 40 - 50 thousand, if not rubles, may be enough for all of the above. And if in rubles - one flash or a good (not even top-end) lens.

  • Orward

    Arkady, hello!
    After purchasing the Nikon D7000, there was a problem of quick automatic adjustment of levels in Capture NX 2. The program simply distorts the color gamut, leading everything to red. The latest version of the program.
    The most interesting thing is that Photoshop CS6 does this much more correctly than Nikon's native software. When I used the D80, it worked only in Capture NX 2, the main work with adjusting the photos was done in it and everything was a bang! And now I can not trust the automatic adjustment of this program. I put together a test collage from the pictures, please see:
    http://s017.radikal.ru/i421/1206/f4/dbe0d0aacb5f.jpg
    Maybe tell me what's the matter? I really liked the NX 2 program, I want to figure it out.
    Enclosed EXIF ​​snapshot:
    http://s61.radikal.ru/i171/1206/58/98a85a951e2f.jpg
    Thanks in advance.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Thanks for the well-prepared question. As far as I noticed, ViewNX2 does not amplify red, but simply shifts Tint towards violet colors. Tint is very strongly associated with BB. Play around, if the pattern in each photo is the same, then just find how much you need to correct Tint and apply the correction. Such a program’s work is most likely connected with the usual algorithms that were sewn into it, and for D7000 it performs just such an adjustment. All the best.

  • Orward

    Arkady, thanks! I'll try.
    Here on the forum I was advised to do this:
    https://nikoneurope-ru.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/51877/kw/Выбор%20процесса%20воспроизведения%20цвета%2C%20используемого%20в%20программе%20Capture%20NX%202
    I have set the option "Always use the latest color reproduction process." After all, it seems like according to the description, the D7000 was released before December 2011. But this did not correct the situation, besides, as far as I understood, this amendment relates generally to the work of the “Picture Controls” module and has nothing to do with Jpeg processing.
    Now I took the camera in my hands and went into the “SHOOTING MODE MENU”, there I selected “White balance”, the default value was “AUTO1”. There you can click on OK and we get into the deep settings of the BB, where a colored table with the coordinates of AB GM appears. The default value of these coordinates is 0-0, the adjustment box in the color table is in the center. Where to move? This is the question. I wouldn’t twist even trickier;) Yes, here's another, I noticed that when choosing ready-made presets (Flash, Incandescent lamp, Daylight ... etc.), after selecting, you always get into this setting table with these coordinates AB GM, where always everything is zero and the square in this table is always centered, is this normal? After all, it seems like I choose a different preset, but the values ​​are always the same.
    Now back to the color gamut, the fact is that when shooting indoors, I would not say that the picture is green, well, yes, there is a flash, but if I make an adjustment to the “AUTO1” value, it will affect the work indoors! ? How to be and set up correctly in this case?
    Thank you!

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Cameras have the property that a single automatic BB will not work equally well in each of the specific cases. No wonder the camera has so many different BB presets. If you select BB using the multi-selector on the monochrome display, then there is no square with the temperature correction, only the correction + and - in cold and warm tones. If you choose WB through the menu, then the camera offers you to fine-tune the WB, indicating which side of the color temperature you need to move the WB. Just up / down is a warm cold adjustment, and left / right is a Tint adjustment. How exactly to set up your camera is up to you and only you.

    Those. when the square is in the center, is any BB preset in the default settings?

  • Orward

    I'm talking about the fact that if you do not move the box (always in the center), do the BB settings change anyway, if you change other presets?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Yes, they do. The square shows the fine tuning for each preset individually. Unfortunately, there is no way to check for sure, since there is no such camera at hand. And yet, I highly recommend that you find this item in the instructions for the camera, and also, when viewing the menu, you can press the “question mark” button and get a short hint for almost all settings.

    Active D-Lighting AUTO - should you use in settings?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      If you shoot in JPEG, then Active D-Lighting AUTO or Active D-Lighting normal, high, medium will allow you to extract information in the dark and parts of the image. But Active D-Lighting itself often gives unnecessary overexposure, more details here https://radojuva.com.ua/2012/01/hitrosti-na-nikon/

    Should I switch from d3100 to d90 or do I save it on d7000?
    The D3100 is embarrassed by the low synchronization speed with puff.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Depending on the needs. You can squeeze the maximum out of the D3100 in shutter priority mode S, setting it to 1 / 200s.

  • Dastan

    as a person who had 90, 300,300s and now 7000ku - I declare the latter many times better :)

    if you are not going to hammer nails with it, this is the best option price / quality
    for the money that it’s better to d300s better dig up a used d700 fx shnoyu

    • Arkady Shapoval

      800, although I took good shots a couple of times on ISO 1600, but with this iso, the composition of the picture only saves.

      • Alexander

        is that you answered me yes? at the expense of the analogy of 70000 and 90

        • Arkady Shapoval

          yes, I missed a little. now 7000 is Nikon's best crop - no options.

          • Alexander

            thank you very much ... nevertheless I decided to change my 90th to 7000th (there is no money for FF) because I don't like the exposure metering of the 90th less than its working ISO, I don't know autofocus - but still it seems to me that it is better than that of the D90, although it very rarely let me down at the 90, but the ISO and exposure metering fail (most of all ISO) constantly

            • Arkady Shapoval

              I think with a large viewfinder you too will be pleasantly surprised. DD at 7000 is even higher than at 700tk

    I am using a SanDisk Extreme HD Video SD SDHC 16GB Class 10 memory card. I am shooting RAW.
    After completely clearing the memory card by formatting, the counter on the upper LCD display shows that 449 frames are available.
    I'm going to shoot ... At the end of the shooting, the counter shows the remainder of 128 pieces.
    I come home, copy the footage to the computer, it turns out 590 pieces.
    The question is, how so? After the format, 449 frames are available, but 590 + 128 = 718!
    I already noticed this, thought it seemed, now I thoroughly checked everything, indeed, the frames are somehow considered strange. What can be wrong? How then to navigate, why the counter is lying?
    A friend of the same girl d7000, also lying.
    What do you think about this?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      It's pretty simple. The camera calculates the amount out of the maximum image size. But, chances are, you are shooting in RAW compression mode, and each shot actually weighs much less than the camera suggests. After filling up a part of the memory card, the camera still calculates the number of frames leaving the available space and the same “reference” image weight. The same feature is found on all Nikon cameras.
      Another example: Nikon D40 thinks that a RAW file will weigh 7.1MB (the maximum size when you shoot a super detailed picture), but in fact, due to compression, RAW files weigh 5-6MB each, and the camera has to recount the number of remaining frames per memory card.

  • Orward

    And how then to calculate the available space?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      The place is not calculated, it is fixed by the volume of the card, or by the available volume on the card (the entire volume minus the amount of all data on the card)
