"Why is the D7000 not on the list for NPS ?"


Windsor, CA
          

I am wondering why the D7000 is not on the list of qualified Cameras to apply to become a NPS member.
The D300 is on there and I understand 100% that the D7000 is considered more a consumer camera where the D300 is considered a professional camera .... but lets be realistic here, the D7000 is over 2 years newer than the D300 and out preforms the D300 in almost every way !

If you were to make a list of the best Nikon cameras on the market today the D7000 will be above the D300 for sure.

Just wondering why Nikon would not have the D7000 in the list as well, they can probably remove it again after the D400 is released because I am sure the D400 will be better than a D7100

Sounds like you understand how it works, you just want to compare two different generations of cameras. The D200/300/400 line is Nikon's cutoff point.

The design of the camera, where you won't find a mode dial on D300, there are only three buttons, QUAL, ISO, and QUAL on the left side.

Also, the mode button and layout of other buttons are favourable to experienced photographers, who know exactly what to do in choosing shutter speed, aperture, ISO, WB etc.

I find it awkward to change ISO on D7000, because I have to press the ISO button by moving the camera away from my face. If it were on top of the camera body as the professional series, it is easier, I guess.

D7000 is classed as a consumer camera by design, however, I am sure it outperforms D300!

ISO can be set with the back dial while in Aperture mode. See "Easy ISO" in the menu.

On the D7000 you can have two wheels (front and back dials) controlling any two sides of the exposure triangle, and having the third side picked automatically by the camera All this selected solely by the mode wheel

Can't get any better than this!

1. Good content, good aesthetics and good tecnique. On that order.
2. Light is more important than glass and pixels.
3. In the digital photography process, software is as important as gear.

I don't get too caught up in whether a camera is labeled as 'professional' or not. If the d7000 is outperforming a d300, and serves the pro's function, what's the problem? they're both crop sensors. I adjust ISO without having to look at my camera (at times) and have no problem. Being a pro-photographer (to me) has nothing to do with being able to shoot shots without looking at the back of my camera. Taking rapid fire shots (for my type of work) means I'm not thinking about composition.

But i understand that everyone's work requires different things.
