When an automaker rolls a new car off the assembly line, the first
thing they do is call in a professional driver to “road test”
that car. They’re armed with the basic tech specs, but the
drivers aren’t overly saddled with capturing data and providing
computer-style analysis. In reality they don’t care about that
stuff. The care how the car feels.
In the very same way, I got to “road test” the Nikon D7000.
This behind the scenes video (above), this short film Benevolent
Mischief I got to make with the new 1080p HD video (below), and
the still photos I shot after the jump tell my story of getting to
play with this cool new camera.
In short, they gave him the camera and some money and told him to make something cool.
