Very basic cable, very affordable price for a great quality HDMI. Definitely a great buy for the people who love to connect their HDTV with their computer/laptops. I've had no issues with this cable in over an year of use.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good set, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The set of keyboard and mouse is one of the best that I have used. The hand-grip for the optical mouse is very good, the wheel although not the smoothest is a very good nonetheless. The keyboard is well designed and have a few extra-function keys for everyday use, like the mute, volume up/down, and playback keys, as well as one for the calculator. The keys have a good shape and typing on this is quite easy. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is buying a simple, yet cost-effective set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable gem for learning photography, 26 Aug. 2012
I bought the AF 50 1.8D with my Nikon D7000 (which has an in-built autofocus motor). For the D5100, D3200, D3100, and other AF motor-less cameras, I would recommend to get the 35 1.8G or the 50 1.8G. If you are comfortable with manual focus, and manual aperture settings, you can surely give this a try on the non-compatible cameras, it will teach you a lot in return.

Prime lenses especially the D lenses teach you a lot about photography and the technical side of lenses when you are jumping in with a DSLR for the first time. This lens has exceptional quality in sharpness, is well built (not weatherproof), focuses very fast on semi-pro and pro cameras, has minimum distortion. The closest it can focus is at 45 cm, add a couple of close-up filters and you have your own macro lens. And, it doesn't weigh a ton.

I use this lens in AF-C 3D mode on my D7000 which compensates a bit for the movements between the shutter button half-pressed, and the final click. This is a non-VR lens, so a faster shutter speed, ISO or a large aperture is recommended. Although I never had any problems with it while shooting in low-light birthday parties without flash.

I recommend the use of this lens for portraits, low-light photos, or landscapes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Balance between Entry-level and Professional, 6 July 2012
There are cameras that excite you in the beginning, and deflate the fun by the time you cross the third bridge.

There are cameras that overwhelm you so much, that you don't want to use them at all in the fear of breaking them.

And then there are cameras that excite you and overwhelm you but you never get tired of them, from the minute you hold them in your hands.

As a photography enthusiast if you settle for something less, or if you are new to photography and end up with something you are not really comfortable with, either of the first two statements would be true for you.

The Nikon D7000 is of the third kind. It is a balance between the two. It provides the right features, the right feel (size and weight), and the right interaction (this camera pulls all the right stops, pun intended). I have been with it for almost an year now and am still excited and intrigued by the control it provides, the quality it delivers, and the amazing ability to adapt to my needs.

Digital SLR are bought mainly because of their ability to be flexible without compromising on quality. With the in-built motor, almost any lens of the Nikkor family is happy with the Nikon D7K.

This model is loaded with features, they will be sufficient for any photography enthusiast, even to a begineer it is pleasing to know the amount of things you can achieve with Nikon D7K.

My buying recommendation, if you looking to upgrade to a FX in a decade or so:

Nikon D7000 body + 50 mm f/1.8 + 28 - 300. Both the lenses are FX so will work on your upgrade in the future as well, no need to spend again to switch from DX to FX. The 50 is good for low-light conditions, while the zoom lens is a quality lens, which covers most of the focal length range.

There are a few complaints, about the model, I say, nobody's perfect: (Give Some, Get Some, Let Go of Some). I think the limitations of this camera help you become a better photographer, not just take great images all the time without any effort.

The oil on the IR-Blocking-Filter, due to the mirror mechanism lubrication, can be resolved by spending a few on a Sensor Cleaning Kit, but not all Nikon D7K have this problem. If you are in warranty, Nikon Repair Centre should be able to resolve the issue for you at no extra cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good SD card for a good price, 3 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Class 10 16GB SD at 30MB/s is good for almost all amateur cameras. It works great with my D7000 as a secondary card for JPG and HD videos, to the UHS-I SD 16GB Extreme Pro at 45MB/s.

Since the write speeds are good for both these cards, I do not have to worry about the buffer overflow in Continuos shooting, with both these, I can take 20 in RAW and JPG.

I would recommend the SD 16GB Extreme Pro at 95MB/s for Sports or Action Photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great IR filter for professional/amateur IR photography, 3 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Hoya R72 is an amazing product, it will work on almost all D-SLRs. I have used it on a Nikon D7000 with a 18-55 for landscape and wide-angle shots. It works at its best in broad daylight.

The product itself is packed in a safe filter holder (plastic), it has a metal frame and the glass is Hoya, so no worries about quality.

Set your WB to 2500K, use a tripod for long exposure shots, set the focus little off the visible light spectrum (A Nikkor 50 F1.8D will help with IR focusing).

You can always modify a D70 or D80 by getting the IR-block filter removed, and with this filter on the lens get instantaneous shots.

Use Photoshop or IrfanView to swap the Blue and Red channels to get the "IR Effect".

Get one, even if you are only looking to experiment with IR.
