comment How can I take long exposures on Nikon D7000 with a wireless remote?
One does not need a wired remote. See my answer.

comment Does Nikon D7000 exhibit particular backfocusing problems?
Focus shift indeed happens with some lenses, which makes calibration a lot more difficult.

comment Nikon D3100 & Strange lines
I´ve heard every possible excuse, ranging from high ISO noise to slow shutter to SD card problems (that last one made me laugh so hard it hurt) Decided to step up to a D7000; using the same lenses ... no problem so far. It´s sad really that manufacturers can get away with this. Only `solace´ is that a friend with a pro Canon had the same kind of probs and also gave up.

By now, the camera has been back and forth to the techies several times and apparently it is impossible to convince them that there is really something not right with the sensor. Calibrated, re-calibrated, cleaned, etc.

Thanks for all your input, people.Last week got the camera back from Nikon Repair... The say they fixed it, calibrated the camera, etc, etc, etc. Problem solved? No, obviously not.

Grrrr, five minutes to edit comments after an accidental ´Enter´ ... Thanks Stan, slight cropping was done from opposite side of the frame :-) Position and band size is inconsistent, some frames non-existent, some stay close to the edge of the frame, other fill the entire image. No colour artifacts... Apart from the sensor, I was indeed starting to suspect the curtain. Time to see if that will fall under warranty :-) Again, thanks for your input!

Just got a message from a fellow shooter, who saw it a few times with a D7000 and a 300mm zoom, but never with his D3100.

Unfortunately, yes... At first I didn´t notice. It looks like there is some relation to the shutter speed and outdoors I usually got a very high shutter speed considering the Portuguese sun. But that is something I can not test during concerts, unless there is really a lot of stage lighting, which is usually not the case ;-)
