Default d7000 aspect ratio

Hi Guys,
I need some help, I would like to set the aspect ratio in the camera at 16:9 so I can view pics on a HDTV. So far I have been cropping to that size in PSE.
Thanks,
r.

The Nikon D7000 only captures images with an aspect ratio of 3:2, however, you can use the Trim option on the Retouch menu to crop an image so it has an aspect ratio of 16:9. See page 252 of the D7000 User's Manual.

I too was very interested in getting a camera with a 16:9 setting. After using it for a while, i realized i could shoot full sensor and then crop in post in batch mode. If any of the crops didn't cover what I wanted, i could redo that particular image crop manually. This was better than being restricted to 16:9 ooc. Incidentally, I used Irfanview to batch crop/resize. There are other programs that do the same and more.

I cropped a batch of about 200 images from my D90 to 16:9 in about 10 minutes using Lightroom. I just highlighted the whole group of images and then cropped the first one. This applied the same crop to all the images. Then I individually looked at each image and adjusted as required. Many of the images were fine just the way they were and it was very quick to adjust the ones that needed it.

By cropping your images in post processing, you can't then put them back in the camera and display them on a television. The camera won't recognize them, and won't display them, either on the LCD monitor or on a television.

That isn't a problem for me. I have never used the camera for a video source for a slide show. My TV will accept a flash drive, and that works very well. Also I have Apple TV which will link to iTunes on my computer, and I can show any images I want that way.
