Nikon D90 Sample Movies

September 15th, 2008

I’ve been loving this camera since it was announced and previewed: [1] [2] [3]. Besides the upgrades from the D80, the most attractive feature is, of course, the ability to record 720p video at 24 fps.

I’ve been watching some professional and user-made videos today, and a few of them caught my eyes (click on each link for the HD version):

Am I gonna buy it? Probably not, at least not this year (my Nikon D40 is only 6 months old). It’s still the first generation video D-SLR. It will just get better and better with upcoming versions. Auto-focus, larger resolutions, longer recording time, stereo sound, etc, etc.

More videos to watch here:

    Thanks for the post. You should probably amend the “user-made” statement to include these were done by professionals under set conditions, not average users on the fly. As a camera, it sounds like; the video capabilities are intriguing but also somewhat crippled in terms of exposure adjustments, having to manual focus through liveview, and the frame rate which I think causes some of the wobble and shudder I’ve seen in other video samples. Nonetheless, I’m very tempted.
