First Things First

This section helps get you oriented with all the things that come in the box with your Nikon D7000, including what they do. I’ll also describe some optional equipment you might want to have. If you want to get started immediately, skim through this section and jump ahead to “Initial Setup” later in the chapter.


The Nikon D7000 comes in an impressive gold box filled with stuff, including connecting cords, booklets, a CD, and lots of paperwork. The most important components are the camera and lens (if you purchased your D7000 with a lens), battery, battery charger, and, if you’re the nervous type, the neck strap. You’ll also need a memory card as one is not included. If you purchased your D7000 from a camera shop, as I did, the store personnel probably attached the neck strap for you, ran through some basic operational advice that you’ve already forgotten, tried to sell you a memory card, and then, after they’d given you all the help you could absorb, sent you on your way with a handshake.
