Good for you, Ian: I too have the D7000 and it goes everywhere with me. It is a delight to use and delivers images up to a superb standard in my opinion. I hope you have great fun with it......I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Just a wee point, Ian.

What did you mean by your comment about weather?

Some of the most dramatic photographs are taken during "bad" weather. Don't fall in to the trap of thinking the sun has to be shining.

Good luck with your new camera. Enjoy it! (in all weathers)

HI GUYS - Thanks for your comments - I do have an issue with it thought - I have Adobe Elements 6 and it does not open these NEF Files - with the camera came Nikon S vIEW nx2 which does open files but i dont find it as user friendly as adobe - is there any plugin i can get for the Adobe Elements - otherwise Iam very happy with my new purchase and I will be taking it out in all weathers its just my other doesnt like going out in bad weather when im with camera.

You need to update your Adobe Camera Raw to version 6.3. Just search for it on the net.

Just bought a D7000 myself, I'm using CS4 and I couldn't update Adobe Camera Raw to the latest version to open the D7000 files. I doubt you'll be able to update Elements 6 either (Adobes way to make sure you upgrade to the latest edition). You either need to upgrade your elements to the latest edition or us a DNG converter. I'm currently using Adobe's DNG converter which is a free download from the Adobe site, it converts the D7000 files to DNG which you can then open in your Elements ACR. It's one extra step but cheaper than updating your software.

I assume you're using a PC (as opposed to a Mac), if it's the latter RAW compatibility is built into/updated at system level - which would let you see RAW files in preview or edit them in iPhoto or Aperture (a Mac-only alternative to Lightroom). The latter can be bought on the Mac App store for something like 60. It's a great piece of kit for any photographer as it both catalogues your images and allows quite a lot of non-destructive editing and adjustment of RAW images.

I used to love Adobe as a company, but they seem to have become greedy and sloppy since the company founders retired from steering them.

Sorry you will need to update to a newer version of Elements or get to know the Nikon sw or buy another RAW converter. Or as others say convert to the DNG format. I use Capture1 myself.

The D7000 is great. I suppose you got it with a kit lens - do you plan any others (when finances have recovered!!)
