The first time I used the video I heard loud noises and that was because of the auto-focus servo motor sound with Nikon D7000 continues auto-focus feature when recording. In this case you need external microphones which are available in many stores and Nikon equipped the D7000 with an industry standard, 3.5mm (1/8th inch) audio in jack.
During movie shooting, the Nikon D7000 DSLR lets you record either monaural sound with the built-in microphone, or stereo recording using an optional external microphone. You can also select the sensitivity level for either the built-in or external microphone. Choose from auto, medium, low for scenes in louder environments, such as a concert hall and high for quite environments and delicate sounds of nature. Compare Nikon D7000 prices below.
