Like this post? Please help us share it

Nikon D90 has finally been announced after weeks and weeks of speculation. A stunning new feature is the ability to take HD720 video @24fps (D-movie). Some advantages of using DSLR to capture videos over camcorders are:
  • the ability to shoot in fisheye, telephoto and wide angle lenses;
  • offering a much larger sensor than camcorders;
  • the ability to capture movies in very low light; and
  • the ability to control depth of field.
