I have the following problem with my D7000: When I'm using my old,non-cpu lenses, the camera won't let me shoot videos. I checked the lenses and they are compatible with D7000 - I can take great pictures with these. As soon as I switch to SCENE, the screen (if on) turns black. I saved/registered the lenses with the right info and put the aperture ring to the lowest setting before starting.
Despite a lot of research I can't figure out what's wrong and I seem to be the only one with this problem.

As for why the screen goes back in video mode, that I do not understand.
First of all thank you for your comments.
I wasn't able to contact Nikon about my problem yet.
But I found out that it SHOULD bloody work. Here's a girl using non-cpu lenses in SCENE mode (Video mode) - and it works fine:
Will post here as soon as I find out why my D7000 doesn't want to film with my beautiful old lenses...
Thank you all!
The lady in the video above is shooting video in M (Manual) mode, not SCENE mode.
@nanki: You may want to revisit your op and think about the wording Also, you said you have done a lot of research on the subject (lot means hours usually), but not contacted Nikon yet (few minutes) - is this the best approach do you think?
