Since I mainly use my D7000 at work for product photos in a controlled setting, I forget how amazing it is for casual shots.

For our Christmas celebration, I set my Speedlight to remote mode and put it on a shelf, pointed 45 degrees toward the ceiling. Put the D7000 in "Auto" mode, used my beat up 18-200, and fired off 100 perfectly focused, perfectly exposed, perfectly white balanced, razor sharp photos. Not a dud in the bunch. People wearing white sitting on a black sofa? No problem. Subjects standing in front of a bright picture window? No problem. Hand the camera to my 12 year old for some shots? No problem.

I didn't think about aperture or shutter speed or ISO or focus. Not once. The camera made every decision and didn't make a single mistake.

These things really are magic.
