Shooting with the Nikon D7000 digital SLR camera – The author, Ben Long, provides a detailed overview of all the functionality of the Nikon D7000 digital SLR camera. Ben has authored 9 photography training videos for Lynda.com to date. The course starts off with what is a DSLR then moves on to how to attach your lenses, using the different modes, changing image format size, how to use auto exposure bracketing, shooting videos, cleaning your camera and so on. I found Ben’s presentation of this course very easy to understand and complete. After completing this course, you will be able to use your camera and all its functions. Though you may not use every single function on this camera, but by viewing the entire course you will have an idea of what functions are available and be able to determine what are most important to you. I have had several digital SLR cameras and find the best way to get up to speed in a short period of time with these cameras is to view a video like this one on the Nikon D7000. The manuals are nice for quick reference out in the field but, spending hours reading these manuals is enough to put anybody to sleep. So, if you have the Nikon D7000 or would like to learn more about Nikon D7000 try out the video samples below and see if this video tutorial is right for you. The duration of the complete course is 3 hours and 33 min. It was released on 10/28/2011. There are several other cameras available like the Nikon D 5000,Canon 60D and the Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5), These, and many other video tutorials are also available at on DVD at Lynda.com.
