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.

This is a shortcut to any specific option, instead of searching through all menus to find it. This also has a feature to select and save many of the settings last used for photographing.
