Released in September 2010, Nikon D7000 is by far the most advanced camera Nikon ever made. In terms of size, it lies somewhere between D300 and D90 cameras, since it is not as huge as the former one and not as lighter as the latter one. Its magnesium alloy body construction, weather/ dust seals and thick rubber coating makes it feel more like a professional camera that also fits well in your hands. With high-resolution 16.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor, ability to make 1080p HD videos and 6 frames per second shooting, this Nikon camera is available for $1,199.95.
