A lot is being made of Nikon’s new D90, out in September. Besides all its up-to-date still camera features (many from the pro-level bodies), it offers movie capture at up to 1280 x 720 (720p) 24 fps with mono sound, a first in a digital SLR.
While the camera is exciting, especially at its price point ($999 body only, $1299 with 18-105VR lens), it really makes me think about this:
if Nikon can build a still camera that takes high quality video, with limitations, how soon before someone comes out with a real, hi-def, interchangeable lens video camera at this same price point? One with a 24x16mm, 12 megapixel sensor? That takes Nikon lenses?
