Record Screens & Menus
Above you can see the D7000 in the Live View function, scrolling through the display options. Here you have a variety of options to choose what information you would like displayed while photographing.
This is the D7000 recording a movie clip. You can choose from four different resolutions; 1920x1080(24fps), 1280x720(24fps), 1280x720(30fps), or 640x424(30fps). Each clip can be up to 20
minutes long or 4GB. Nikon claims this all depends on the write speed of your memory card.
