How do you prepare for the trip of a lifetime? In this installment, Nikon Professional Services team and David Adams review the equipment he will take on location. The Nikon D7000 features both high quality stills and HD video – giving the documentary filmmaker/photojournalist new creative opportunities.

The stealth that you get when it looks like you’re shooting stills, when you’re actually shooting HD video, is great.

The two slots for SD cards (one for stills, one for video) gives the filmmaker the freedom to capture the action without swapping from a stills to video camera, or worrying about running out of memory at a crucial never-seen before moment.

‘Having a reliable kit on the road is essential. ’As a photojournalist, most of your time is spent getting the shot as it actually happens’ says Adams, a Nikon photographer for more than 20 years ‘You don’t have time to fiddle around with aperture or f-stops, you just have to trust the equipment.’

Stay tuned for the next installment as Adam’s pushes into new frontiers with the Nikon D7000.
