GEAR I USE
I had an opportunity to use this at the 2015 College Football Playoff Championship Game when it was newly on the market and was incredibly impressed. This is the first year that it's been a regular tool in my arsenal. I utilize it primarily as a video camera to produce game day featurettes and documentary work. The flat color profiles grade beautifully in post production and 1080 60p recording is essential for stylized slo mo work. It may not shoot 4k, but it's quickly become my flagship everyday shooter.
We employ this camera as a secondary body and it consistently delivers. Solid build quality and incredible images, there's not much to say about this other than it delivers when you need it to.
It's a bit long in the tooth, but this is my personal everyday shooter. It's small enough to not burden me when walking along a boardwalk or busy street fair with my family and yet is able to produce high-end, professional work when my other two cameras aren't available. This was the camera that cemented my love affair with Nikon. I have shot a wide variety of cameras from a wide variety of brands, but the D7000 just feels like home.
