Old enough that its price has dropped substantially -- putting the body-only model within gifting territory for more generous givers -- this remains a great camera for someone who wants to shoot sports and other fast action, or just an all-around great camera. We recommend that you also include a 95MBpsec SD card with it if your giftee likes to do a lot of continuous shooting.

Starting at: $599.00
The good: Excellent performance for its class; great viewfinder; control locations and operations streamlined over previous Nikon dSLRs; double SDXC-compatible card slots.
The bad: No 1080/30p video.
The bottom line: An excellent dSLR for experienced shooters or Nikon professionals looking for a relatively cheap option, the Nikon D7000 delivers on almost all counts, including the company's best shooting design to date.
