Gone are the days that I spend a hard waiting period for a precious roll of film to finish and waiting anxiously for it to be posted and prints send back. Also, the days of dark room guess work, developing chemicals (developer, acid and fixer), photopaper and enlarger is a distant vivid memory.

While shooting, I can change the ISO setting, which is impossible to do on film. A roll cannot have mixed ISO of 100, 200, 320, 400, 800, 6400 etc.

With Nikon D7000, I can shoot and process RAW (NEF) images straightaway. It is a camera bolted on with an amazingly fast and portable studio (darkroom or lightroom).

The EXPEED2 proceesor is amazingly fast. My slow computer needs more than three minutes to process an EV change for a RAW file while D7000 does it in a second or two.

Very please with my D7000, it can do sharpening, monochrome with colour filtering effects, sketching (turning photo into handmade sketches for artist to work) , etc.

It helps me to develop new skills: shooting, processing and cleaning sensor!

The downside is AF finetune issues with my old AF Nikkor lens. The price is expensive too.
