Chase Jarvis and the Nikon D7000

September 14th, 2010



YouTube Preview Image YouTube Preview ImageRemember back when Chase Jarvis launched the Nikon D90 campaign? Well Nikon and Chase Jarvis have done it again with the new Nikon D7000 project. The first campaign they did was extremely successful and led the way for future campaigns by companies like Canon to do the same. I don’t doubt that this one will be just as successful if not more.

Nikon called up Chase Jarvis and said, “Chase-san. We have a new camera…” (I got a kick out of the “Chase-san” part the first go-around, and I’m definitely laughing about it again). They gave him cameras, the creative freedom and a budget to work with. Chase grabbed his friends and team and took to the road to make it happen. I’m especially blown away by the images that were produced from this shoot. Almost all of the images have a beautiful and tasteful sun flare which really makes me melt.

You can check out some images of the camera here, here and here. Below are a few of the D7000′s key specs for you camera geeks:

    I’m loving those sun flares too.

    It blows me away how much freakin light the DSLRs bring in for video, Benevolent Mischief looks like it’s pretty much just natural light, even for evening and dim indoor shots. That’s freakin awesome, natural light is the coooolest.

  3. The price of D7000 with body only at $1,200 is considered quite steep and there’s not much improvement as compared to the D90.

    I will still stick with my D90 for sometime.
