Nikon Announce the D90 – The First Digital SLR Camera With HD Video

Here comes the Nikon D90, a camera that manages to outshine features from its current professional line-up as well as claim the honour of being the first digital SLR with HD video recording capabilities.

Nikon D90


Not happy at showing off with its 12.1MP it shoots continuously at up 4.5 frames-per-second. With an impressive power up in just 0.15 seconds and a shooting lag of just 65ms this camera sits at the forefront of the camera world just now. The new HD video party trick, called D-Movie Mode, allows snappers to capture 720p video in Motion JPEG format at 24fps with sound. The camera has low noise ISO sensitivity from 200 to 3200 and there’s a 3in 920,000-dot LCD display with 170-degree viewing angle.


Other key features include built-in image sensor cleaning, 11-point AF system with face priority and fast auto-focus, one-button Live View, 5 scene modes, in-camera image editing and GPS geo-tagging.


It’s not as highly specified as the Canon EOS 50D but then it is cheaper, with a US price tag of around £500. There’s also a new lens, the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, and the kit price is around £650.


Obviously, those prices will inflate the closer it gets to its UK "expected" release date of September 5th but, it also means that the existing D80 will be getting a serious price cut bargain hunters.-Martin Lynch

Charge whilst you walk

1220020800.gif Saw a VERY interesting article at jkOnTheRun that mentions the scenario of converting your everyday movements into charge for your mobile phone battery, awesome! Read on for more info!

The project sounds to be in it’s infancy, but from what I read – sounds VERY promising! Imagine going through your everyday routine: shopping, vacuuming, washing dishes, just playing with your children and at the SAME TIME, charging your phone battery in the process.

Xperia X1 what is going on

image When this device was announced way back in February this year it looked like this could be the phone to have in your pocket, great enhancements to Windows Mobile 6.1 matched with great specifications. Now nearly 7 months later it is looking increasingly likely that we will not be seeing this device at all this year or ever for that matter. According to Engadget who were talking with a Sony Ericsson representative at the IFA show the device will be delayed until December 2008 at the earliest.
