"Document your D7000 settings"


Breitenbach, CH
          

Recently I was sitting in an airport lounge waiting for a delayed flight. As you can imagine, this is really boring. Just for fun I started to put the menu and the default values of the D7k into an Excel table. Later on I started to add the settings of Mike Hagen and Ken Rockwell into the list. I have no idea if this exists already, but if it is of use for you, please feel free to get it from here. So, this became a nice tool for me to compare settings (including my own ones). Probably I'm not going to maintain this for myself, but if you give me a hint for other useful D7k settings I'm happy to update this list for a short period of time.

Andy

Glad to see a spreadsheet with all the settings. It's a keeper.

Thanks,

Last year I adapted a spreadsheet created by Nikonian Scott Winders (and which was inspired by Don McVey) to record the settings for my D300s.

I recently got hold of my D7000 and have completely re-writtten the spreadsheet for the D7000. It is still very much a work in progress, but I am happy to share it with other Nikonian D7000 shooters.

It is a zipped interactive Excel Worksheet (.xls) with a number of tabs that allow the user to set-up and record settings for any of 4 preferred shooting situations, as well as recording the Camera's Defaults and reference links to explanatory pages in the D7000 Users Manual.

Although I believe it is fairly intuitive (at least to me!), it is also quite complicated - as is the D7000 itself - so I would suggest you first click on the "Introduction" tab, which explains how it all works.

If you have any suggestions as to how this can be improved, and/or find any errors, please email them to me on the link which can be found on the "Introduction" tab in the spreadsheet.

I hope this is helpful, but please be aware that any of the "opening settings" in the 4 "banks" in the various tabs of the worksheet are for illustrative purposes only and in no way constitute a recommendation or suggestion as to how you should set up your D7000 - only you can determine the best/preferred settings for your individual shooting situations.

Please click the link below to download the file >>

Enjoy!
