No but, but bits of it were, it says something along the lines of "nikon d90 D-video" when it is d90 footage, it did look good though. And there is a "D-Movie Demo" vid on the nikon d90 page

I saw the sample videos on Nikons D90 site, but it seems like they're trying to hide the audio from the videos. I don't think the audio will be too good. hmmm....

I was suprised to see that the 4-way control rocker, takes after the d3/d700, instead of the d300....as the d90 has the center "OK" button (even though the d300 technically has a center button)

I'm pretty happy that Nikon released this level of camera.

Chase Jarvis really seemed to like the functionality of the camera, and did I hear him mention the ISO performance was good at 3200??


:lol: Definitely a strong upgrade from the D80, and a great camera to hit the market.

Looking at this D80/D90 side-by-side comparison it looks like the only thing not changed is the auto-focus system.

I like the fact that the dimensions are the same as the D80, but it's a little bit heavier. I still use my D80 purely because I love the size and compactness of it. To think the D90 has the IQ of the D300, but in the D80 body is pretty amazing!

I've never had the inclination to shoot video before and I like the D300's auto-focus system, but down-grading to the D90 looks tempting.....never thought I'd say that!!

Anyone want a D300??? :lol:

From the tech specs on Nikon's site, it says:

Storage system: Compressed 12-bit NEF (RAW)

That doesn't sound so good. What happened to lossless compressed?
