quality of even tone gradations whilst still maintaining color,
contrast and noise.
With corresponding features such as 6FPS burst shooting, a
39-Point AF System and autofocus fine tuning, every accurate detail
is wonderfully captured. These innovative operations allow
photographers the option of employing active dynamic or single
point AF, which is configurable in combinations of 9, 21 or 39 or a
21 point ring to match a variety of shooting styles and settings.
Users can also activate 3D tracking, which continuously follows
moving subjects within the 39 AF points, highlighting the activated
AF point in the viewfinder. Imagine witnessing that first
fearful flight of a young bird; imagine having a camera that will
reproduce the magnificent moment; the dream becomes a reality the
second you pick up the D7000.

Autofocus functions including face tracking, subject tracking and
normal or wide area Autofocus. The impressive combination of the

D7000's ability to demonstrate awe - inspiring movies and as always
