    I have Nikon D7000.

    The problem is that, when I'm RECORDING VIDEO and camera is positioned on one normal-light spot, but when I move it to lighter spot* it flashes and ruin the video for a couple of seconds, and then it brings back to normal , *example: when there is sky,snow,white wall, or just ligter environment...

    Can anyone help me with that?

    So whats the problem, as far as I can see the camera is on auto and adjusting the exposure, it has happened since the first vid cams.

    Use an old manual focus lens so you can manually set the aperture. What lens do you have. Do you at least have one that is not AF-S?

    Not sure how this will work with the D7000 but it should be similar.
    What I do on my d90 is this:

    Just set the exposure lock button on your camera before you roll.... that's what it's there for....

    Page 106 in the user's manual, and note the info box at the bottom of the page - Adjusting Shutter Speed and Aperture.

    If you've lost/misplaced your D7000 user's manual you can download it, and other Nikon user's manuals here: Nikon Product Manuals available for download
