The New Nikon D90!

On 27th August 2008, Nikon has announced its new camera that takes DSLR technology a step further. It is Nikon D90; a 12.3 megapixel DX camera that able to record 24-fps HD (up to 720p) video with sound. Yes, HD video recording capability. *grin*

Now, there have been arguments about combining DSLR and video recording is a bad move by Nikon. Some people said, only point & shoot should have that feature. I say, why not? Just look at handphones technology. Most handphones come with a built-in camera (some even come with high megapixel built-in camera) that enables users to take photos and record videos. I think you can draw your own conclusion by now. *grin*

The video recording capability is not a compulsory for users to use. It is an additional bonus. If you want to use it, just turn it on. If you hate the feature, get another model; or get a Canon. From the rumors, the replacement model for Canon 5D will come with video recording capability as well but it is only rumors. No one knows when Canon will launch even though there are some Canon fan-boys already wet their pants with the rumors.

Anyway, if you are interested to know more about Nikon D90, you can head to these sites. Enjoy! *grin*
