nikon's new d90 camera - first dslr with hd video mode

after a few weeks of rumors, their newest digital slr camera, the d90. photography and video forums have been buzzing about this camera not because of a new set of photographic features (which are, as usual, very cool) but because of , complete with sound.

. but they are being drowned out by the excitement of many others who welcome a fun (and useful) additional feature.

for someone like myself who regularly carries around a second camera (even if it is just a tiny canon elph) only for the option of shooting short video to accompany my photos, this is a very exciting new tool. first, the image quality will be a marked improvement. 720p at 24fps means you have HD quality video being recorded at a frame rate that is the same as film (giving a warm, soft effect to the video), rather than video (which always seemed to have a cheapish 80s feel, although better for capturing fast action).

add to that the option to use a bag full of great lenses, from fisheyes to zooms to fast lenses with very narrow depth of field, and you can become a proper cinematographer, controlling the viewer's eye with your creative and stylistic choices.

with companies like pushing the envelope of digital filmmaking, it is not too shocking to see nikon put their toes in the water too. my guess, the next five years will bring some major changes to those who make film.

and finally, after weeks of wondering, you can now to see the variety of videos this camera can generate.

of course, you can also already.

agree. this looks so totally dope.

although, it's a funny trade-off... there are two key things that make video seem really pro or film-like. it's NOT resolution, actually. it's:

1. fancy depth of field
2. good sound

so while the d90 suddenly gives us #1, it kills us on #2.

but who needs sync audio anyway? drop an mp3 onto that clip!
