"New D7000 first DSLR"


Oak Foest, US
          

I'm new to the site and have been reading posts on the new D7000 I'm not new to photography bought my Olympus OM2 in 1976 and OM2s later have lots of lenses which can be used on Oly E30 but dont like the 4/3 system. I had been looking at the D90 or 300s but holding out for the D7000 for my first DSLR because I do a lot of high school sports indoor and outdoor where I need high ISO speed I see from reading I will have a big learning curve I like to shot aperature priority. I must say it's a little intimadating all the adjustments that can be made and I know nothing about photoshop editing have been looking into Elements 9. I will be checking this site often for advice

Welcome to Nikonians.

Software can be as intimidating as the new camera, but it does not need to be. We have a number of forums dedicated to software, so whatever product you choose we'll try to help.

If it makes you feel any better, many of us are in the same (or smaller) boat you're in. I had been looking at the D300 before it was released back in, what? 2007 or 2008 I think. I've settled for an upgraded point and shoot, and saving my money.

I love to take travel photos of landscape, wildlife, and some artsy-archetecural stuff and have started (barely) submitting some microstock photos. My basic photographic knowledge is pretty limited (apologies to Nikonians, Ken Rockwell, and Thom Hogan). However, I want to learn and expand my capabilities.

I picked up my first DSLR by grabbing the D7000 kit at Best Buy. We have migrating geese in our backyard and I'm guessing they aren't the best subjects to bolster the confidence of a novice. My first 92 photos (hello! continuous shooting) look fantastic on the 3" camera display. However upon closer review after downloading - not so much. Probably would have done better with my point and shoot to be honest.

Other than iPhoto, I don't have any type of photo software. That's a whole different beast.

Anyway, it's a journey. I've got a Nikon. I've got Nikonians. What more can you ask for?

I only have the kit lens for now (18-105mm). I figure I'll work on getting that figured out before I spend more!!

Good strategy. No doubt you will get more lenses, but in the meantime, the kit lens isn't a bad performer. Sure, not as fast as we'd like, but it has a pretty useful zoom range. Enjoy.

Welcome to Nikonians Ralph and congrats on the D7000!

Do some research on aperture priority and Auto-ISO with setting a minimum shutter speed and min and max ISO. You should find this technique works very well for low-light shooting.
