Nikon points D7000 camera at high-end enthusiasts

More focus, less noise

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Nikon hauled in London's camera and tech press corps yesterday to show off its latest DSLR, the Nikon D7000. We shall post a review soon enough, but for now, here's a run down of the spec.

Positioned between the Nikon D90 and the D300s, this 16.2mp camera is aimed at enthusiasts who are willing to pay £1100 for a body only or £1299 with a 18-105mm VR lenses.

They get lots of spec for their bucks, housed in a sealed, magnesium alloy "highly durable" compact body.

The D7000 uses a new CMOS image sensor, EXPEED 2, Nikon's new image processing engine, to deliver better image quality with less noise than its downmarket D90 sister.

There's a new colour metering systems and a new 39 point AF system to help keep everything in sharp focus.

As you would expect the D7000 captures video in full HD (1080p) mode - and it has two SD memory slots for storage.
