I currently own a D200 and it has served me well the since 2006. I've been looking at the D7000 for a while now and everything was looking great, that is until I read that it can only bracket 3 shots with a max of only one stop.
Did I read this correctly? I hope not, as I use exposure bracketing all the time with my D200 which as we all know will bracket up to 9 stops.
If it could at least bracket 3 shots, 2 stops apart, I might be able to live with it, but only 3 shots with a max of only one stop is a show stopper for me. How could Nikon limit such a promising camera to only 3 shots in bracketing mode? Haven't they heard of HDR?
Is it possible that a future firmware upgrade might fix this unbelievable omission?

You are correct that the D7K only brackets 3 shots, however the max is actually 2 stops. So that might work for you.
This is one of the limitations of the D7K which otherwise I find to be an excellent performer. I do shoot some HDR and have to resort to manual exposure bracketing if I want 5,7 or 9 shots - which can be a problem in limiting movement in the scene.
I do not know about the ability of a firmware update to change this - it would certainly be welcome ... as would some other "fixes"!

Thanks for the quick reply. Its good to hear that it will do two stops, I guess I was misinformed. I do a lot of stitching and I usually incorporate HDR as well, so yes, 3 shots two stops apart would work.
