Initial Setup

This section helps you familiarize yourself with the three important controls most used to make adjustments: the multi selector and the main and sub-command dials. You’ll also find information on charging the battery, setting the clock, mounting a lens, and making diopter vision adjustments. If you’re comfortable with all these things, skim through and skip ahead to “Changing Default Settings” in the next section.


Once you’ve unpacked and inspected your camera, the initial setup of your Nikon D7000 is fast and easy. Basically, you just need to charge the battery, attach a lens, and insert a memory card. I’ll address each of these steps separately, but if you already are confident you can manage these setup tasks without further instructions, feel free to skip this section entirely. While most buyers of a D7000 tend to be experienced photographers, I realize that some readers are ambitious, if inexperienced, and should, at the minimum, skim the contents of the next section, because I’m going to list a few options that you might not be aware of.
