One of the special things about this camera is that it's the first dSLR with a movie mode. This is one of the features many consumers thought dSLR cameras lacked and they'll be glad to hear the Nikon D90 can shoot 360 x 216, 640 x 424 and even 1280 x 720 (720p) video.
In a world first for D-SLRs, the D90 offers a movie function, allowing you to shoot 320 x 216 pixels, 640 x 424 pixels or HD720p (1,280 x 720 pixels) movies at the professional smoothness of 24 frames per second in motion JPEG format. The D90’s sensor, which is much larger than the sensor of a typical camcorder, ensures higher image quality and exceptional low-noise, high ISO sensitivity performance, even during movie shooting. Capturing creative movie clips or the drama of life’s moving moments is further enhanced by the wide selection of incredibly sharp NIKKOR interchangeable lenses that are available, from fisheye to wide-angle to super-telephoto. And Micro NIKKOR lenses bring the magic of extreme close-up imagery to movie making.
The kit will be available for $1,299 in September. More specs at Nikon.
