I have been waiting for Nikon and Canon to release their new models during this weeks Photokina event in Europe. I wasn't disappointed when Nikon held a press conference to announce their new D90 DSLR. What makes this particular camera ultra-special is that it will record high definition video as well. See my Tumblr post for more info.
I managed to finally order one this morning and was surprised to find that they are already in the warehouses and prepping to ship to customers on Friday, September 5. I ordered the kit with the Nikon 18-105 VR lens. With overnight shipping, that'll mean I get mine on Saturday.
I can't wait to try it out, especially the HD video. I haven't used an SLR since my old photography days when I had a Nikon FM, FE, and later and F3. I loved those cameras, but they soon wore on me as too much to carry for many events. I have been carrying a small Nikon point-n-shoot that has done a darn good job. But now I want more options and control over the process. Look forward to more postings with photos or photo-related news in the coming months.
