@Nelson Solberg

The website below has some good instructions for how to check your firmware version, and update it if necessary :

I also like to know what would be a good wide angle lens for the Nikon D7000.

Hello everyone, just joined the group. I have finally purchased a Nikon D7000 and I'm still learning certain functions on it. I sold my Nikon D5100 for a good amount of money so that I could get this. I would like to know how do I avoid my on camera flash from going off in commander mode with my external Nikon SB-700 ?

OK, Looks like I forgot a "0" on 2 of my D7000 below…..

Greetings D700 users. I just joined the group today. I was just reading about the sensor cleaning from back in November. I was fortunate enough to attend a sensor cleaning class at my local photography Meet Up last year & now I can clean my own sensor. It's not as hard as it seems. I would look into finding someone to instruct you in how to clean your sensor. 

I would like to also recommend a great book to use as a guide in learning more on the D7000. The book is From Snapshots to Great Shots by John Batdorff. He impresses that his book is only a companion book to the owners manual. I have found it a very good tool in learning how to use the camera. The ISBN is 978-0-321-76654-0. I bout mine when it was first published for $24.99; you can find one now for about $16.00-$20.00. 

I've had my D700 for about one year now & I'm still learning about all the functions. LOL

Tony, my basic premise is whatever it takes to get the photo, whether it's auto, a scene setting or spinning the dials, just so long as its a good shot I don't really care how I got there.  I agree with the suggestion about the auto setting, you can always look at the settings and see where a good starting point is from the shot that you got and just improve on that.

Linda Thanks - will try out the various modes - always thought like it was cheating using set modes lol - was trying to use Aperture priority as main one - still better to crawl before you walk lol - nothing wrong with the camera just the person behind it lol 

As per mnsidds re flash i was on TTL but i am sure the ISO was the problem - Thanks for the tips guys especially re the firmware update

Tony, have you tried any of the "scene" settings on your camera?  You might try the "party" scene, I think that's what it's called.  I have found them really convenient and helpful when I'm just not sure exactly what I need.
