Okay, straight up front. My next Nikon will be have video capabilities (all new ones have this B)) and as always I ask here first. Wheatsack has already gave me some thoughts in another posting and many thanks. How is it for my fellow Planeteers? Do u use it and for what? What video editing program do u use? Is manual focusing the only or best way to capture? Can you record lengthy videos? Can u load one for our viewing? Thanks a million for any participation. PJ..The confused video guy.:blink:

I'm getting back into video production (starting to get more requests / opportunities for it). My take - 1. I don't currently have a Nikon that shoots video, but I've used a D7000 and several Canon DSLRs for video, and I will NEVER go back to a standard camcorder again. I love the cinematic look that is much more affordably achieved via DSLR lenses. 2. Most DSLRs limit your recording time to about 20 minutes. Also, I've found that if your files are larger than a certain size, some cameras (the Canons, at least) will split them into smaller segments on the memory card. 3. Continuous recording can cause your camera to overheat and shut down until it cools sufficiently to continue. 4. Use fast (class 10) SDHC memory cards 5. I edit in Final Cut Pro (7) and teach Adobe Premiere. Both have some fine features but I dislike the cluttery interface of Premiere intensely. 6. PluralEyes software from Red Giant is AMAZING for synchronizing footage from multiple cameras (multicam shoot) 7. A couple recent samples - both shot with Canon DSLRs: Walkjoy / Walking Health (medical device) promo: Mercedes Benz 300 SL promo: Hope that helps, Jazzer! J

PJ, I know the D800 has amazing video capability...... I have yet to even run 1 second of video on it. Can you believe it? Honestly, I am interested, have lots of ideas.... But I simply like taking pictures more! I simply do not do video.

How is it for my fellow Planeteers? I love the added video capabilities. I use it to capture special events and concerts (for personal use). Do u use it and for what? See samples of video clips. D800 D7000 video What video editing program do u use? Adobe Media encoder / Windows video maker Is manual focusing the only or best way to capture? Manual focus minimizes the noise the lens makes when using auto focus. It is recommended that you use manual focus to eliminate this. The D7100 has a stereo mic unlike the D800 which is why I use a Nikon ME-1 mic to get a stereo sound. It doesn't require a battery to operate. Can you record lengthy videos? Less than 30 minutes per recording. Once you stop recording, the counter is reset to 29min 59 secs. This is standard with all manufacturers. Can u load one for our viewing? See attached link above. :)

Is there a decent tutorial on using the Video capabilities in the D7000? I have no interest in doing movies or travelogues, but I am picking up a motorhome in CA in july, and when the woner walks me through all the ins and outs of the vehicle, I'd like to record all the details so if I have questions later, I can refer back to the video. I have a great selection of lenses to work with but no external lights.

Chris, that is an excellent idea, good for you for coming up with a well thought out plan. Darrell (DD on the forum) publishes some really good books on how to use the features of your camera. I had his D90 book and now, his D800 book. I believe he did a D7000 book. You can probably pick it up on Amazon. I would say one of those books is your best bet.

In addition to Darrell's book, YouTube probably has a video or two showing the video aspects of the D7000 as well.
