For quite some time the Nikon D7000 has been considered one of the best cameras around. However things seem to have changed when Canon introduced the 7d. As you read through this article about the Canon 7d vs Nikon d7000 you will soon see why this is the case.
However before I go into a little more detail regarding the advantages of using these two cameras, lets have a look at some of the features they come with.

Enough about the features now let me explain a bit more about the advantages of having the Canon 7d vs Nikon d7000.
Even though the Canon 7d has been out for some considerable time it does have some more advanced features than you will find on the Nikon d7000. First of these being it comes with the Transmissive LCD screen which enables you to be more flexible when taking shots as it not only provides more information when taking shots but enables you to use more of the cameras features that a traditional focusing screen doesn’t allow for.
Another advantage of using the Canon 7d is that is considerably faster than some other DSLR’s of this size.
As for the Nikon d7000 well there are certain areas where it really is better than the Canon 7d. The first of these being that the metering and AF system employed in this camera is much better. For example when you try out the Canon 7d vs Nikon d7000 you will find that during movie mode with the Nikon model the AF focusing mode allows for autofocus to take place. Certainly for someone who likes to use a DSLR camera only occasionally they may find this the ideal piece of equipment for them.
Having said all this however I still feel that there will be a market for the Canon 7d vs Nikon d7000 because of certain advance features it comes with. Plus it performs a great deal better than the Nikon d7000 and yet this camera is likely to grab a share of the market simply because of the name.
