Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video The AE-L button, part of Nikon D7000 Essential Training.
As you've seen by default, when you half-press the Shutter button to meter on…the D7000, as you move the camera around, it will continuously re-meter.…You can of course use the Exposure Lock button to lock your exposure.…You can also reconfigure the camera using a Custom Setting.…I am going to go in here to my Custom Setting menu, into the C category…Timers/AE lock, and the first item Shutter-release button AE-L.…If I switch that to on, then my exposure will stay locked as long as I continue…to hold the Shutter button halfway down.…
So now, if I half-press to meter, I can continue to keep the button halfway…down, recompose my scene, and I won't get a re-metering.…My AE lock button will still work the way it always has.…I just also get a lock off of the Shutter button.…
