Now I finally have auto exposure bracketing (for much easier HDR images)! Even though this camera makes HDR really easily, I’m sort-of glad my first DSLR(D3100) did not have AEB, as this taught me to really plan out my HDR images; not everything should be overly processed. Still, I’m super excited about an easier way to get bracket photos.
Also, I’ll admit that I never really used Manual mode on the D3100, and spent most of the time shooting Auto 🙁 , with a little bit on Aperture priority or Shutter priority. Transitioning to the D7000, I am making it a point to almost exclusively use Manual mode on this camera, as a good way to get better at learning photography (probably what I should have done a year ago).
^ I should point out this camera has TWO rotary dials: one for aperture and the other for shutter speed, which I love and have already found invaluable in Manual mode. ^
This camera makes me happy. There are many new features of the D7000 I have yet to discover, and l am excited about the learning experience ahead! As always, keep an eye on these albums for new photos: Google+ | 500px
Update 01/12/13: I just discovered lynda.com as an amazing collection of video tutorials on using the Nikon D7000 and all its features – I would definitely recommend checking them out!
