Nikon D7000: “Consumer” Camera Angles for the Pro Market

Nikon D7000 DSLR Camera (Body)

Until this week Nikon had three different lines of D-SLR cameras. The “consumer” level cameras like the Nikon D5000 and Nikon D3100, “prosumer” models like the Nikon D300S and Nikon D700, and full up “pro” models like the Nikon D3S and Nikon D3X. Of course plenty of pros (like me) use prosumer and consumer models when they are the best fit for a project and plenty of “consumers” own a D3 family camera, but at least the three product lines had a fairly obvious set of distinctions. But with the D7000 Nikon has really blurred the line between consumer, prosumer and pro camera at the same time.

Very Cool (Free) Guide to Video D-SLRs from B&H

The folks at B&H realize how interesting but also how complicated the addition of video to the D-SLR has made our buying decisions and how many new accessory needs it has created. So they've created a really nifty interactive guide to HD-Video D-SLRs that you can benefit from for free. Just click the Start button in the HDSLR logo to the left of this post to get started. And make sure and let us know what you think about their information on the subject.

Canon Announces Canon 60D--Pushing the Envelope for Consumer D-SLRs

In the continuing barrage of new digital cameras, Canon has fired the most recent shot with the new 60D mid-range consumer/prosumer D-SLR--a solid upgrade to the popular 50D. With a stunning 18MP sensor firing away at over 5 frames per second the Canon certainly doesn't have entry level specs. One nice twist (if you'll pardon the pun) is the addition of a fully adjustable LCD, typically only found on video cameras and some point and shoots.

You can drool over the Canon 60D page at B&H, but it isn't expected to ship until September. Canon estimates the sale price as $1099. You can read the full release online.
