Following the news of Nikon’s new midrange DSLR the D7000, the new camera finds itself coming up against Canon’s recent new addition the EOS 60D. It also comes up against the Olympus E-3 since it has been superseded by the E-5.
Janice Chen of Zdnet is reporting that although all three cameras are priced reasonably close together the Nikon D7000 easily beats the three year old E-3, and also gives the 60D a run for its money. The new Nikon can’t match the 60D for video recording, but offers manual exposure control and continuous autofocus while shooting video.
The body of the D7000 is compact but a sturdy design, and is also like the E-3 in being dustproof and splash proof. The Nikon also has slots for two memory cards, where SD/SDHC/SDXC can be used. The Canon has the nice articulating LCD offering more flexibility when framing shots, but the Nikons optical viewfinder is superior to the 60D offering.
