I've just spent the last three hours test the 36mbite upgrade on the D7000. The 7000 is my third camera body so I decided I could take the risk. Well at 24fps 1080P it is now as good or better than the D7100. I was using the Nikkor 12-24 set at 18mm to test the two cameras. I test the 7000 with the standard codec and the NikonHacker codec against the D7100 (no hack available) at 24 1080P. The standard D7000 codec reports about 3.75 for the video data rate while the Hacker reports 9.375. It is significantly sharper when compared side to side in a video. I would not recommend doing this unless you can spare your 7000 as with any upgrade if your batter dies you will brick your camera. That being said I have done at least 8 upgrades/restores while testing with no issue. The files with the hack are larger (depends on the detail in the scene) and your recording time drops from 20 minutes to 17 minutes. But IMHO the increase in sharpness (detail) is worth it. It is now actually slightly better than the D7100 24 1080P in detail.
