How much resolution do I need? 21 Nikon D-SLRs compared

Welcome to another round of comparison on this website. A while ago, I compared 21 Nikon D-SLR bodies out of my personal interest. How much resolution is necessary with the usual output devices and print sizes. Of course the level of post processing impacts results. As those requirements vary widely, I decided to upload all NEF files from the cameras, so that every interested reader can download the files from cameras he is interested in and apply his very personal post processing and scaling to the size he needs/wants. And THEN assess if he really needs the next resolution level.

I’ve tried very carefully to use the 21 bodies in similar ways in a stable setup to make the comparision as valid as possible. Covered bodies: D1, D1H, D1X, D2H, D2X, D3, D3S, D3X, D40X, D50, D60, D80, D90, D200, D300, D300S, D700, D3000, D3100, D5000, D7000 and as a special guest – P7000.

First Impressions with the D7000

This posting is a rough translation of several comments I wrote in diverse internet fora about my first impressions with the D7000. The camera arrived on Nov 5th and in the following 3 weeks, I’ve basically “blogged” in the german NFF forum about my experiences with the newly introduced camera. Others from the english speaking community asked about a translated version of this. A good opportunity to start my small project over here. I love to learn and I love to share. Maybe some people find the content useful.

With that, enjoy my first article about the D7000, (watch out it is rather long)
