It seems the buzz is all around the DSLRs these days. However digital P&S cameras still outsell DSLRs by a vast margin. People love P&S digital compact cameras for various reasons: small, light weight, convenient, low cost, both still and video capable, etc. There are some nice features that have been transferred from digital P&S to DSLRs. Live view? Almost all digital P&S have it naturally without the fancy name. Video shooting? It is common on digital P&S but has been mostly a crazy dream until just a few days ago, with the release of the Nikon D90. Read More…

After days of leaked news floating around the Internet, Nikon finally released the details of the mid-range DSLR, an upgrade to the D80. Featuring a 12.3-megapixel APS-C sized (DX format) sensor and EXPEED image processing engine, the D90 is also the first DSLR to feature a moving function that can record up to 720P HD (1280×720 pixels) at 24 fps! Considering the much larger sensor in D90 compared to the tiny sensors in typical camcorders, you could imagine the superb image quality you can get. The D90 inherited many advanced features from Nikon’s flagship DX-format DSLR, the D300. Read More…

Rumors have been floating around for quite a while. Now there is some evidence that the Nikon D90 is coming. Apparently someone (as reported by Engadget) has found the D90 in the UPC database.

Nikon D3 and D700 can switch between DX (24x16mm) and FX (36x24mm) modes to accommodate different lens formats. If “Auto DX Crop” is enabled, the camera will automatically adjust the picture angle (field of view) to DX format when a DX lens is attached, and to FX format if a 35mm format lens is attached.

Obviously, the DX format can use only the pixels in the center of the FX frame on the FX DSLRs. For Nikon D3 and D700, it is 5MP. This is indeed a lot fewer pixels compared to a DX format DSLR such as Nikon D300, but you enjoy the superior picture quality throughout a wider ISO sensitivity range attributed to larger pixel size that yields a higher signal-to-noise ratio and wider dynamic range. Therefore users can actually take advantage of the DX mode when you only need or have the center area of the frame even with a FX format lens. Example of such situation is when your subject is too far away to fill the FX frame. Not only you have smaller file size to handle, but also you don’t need to crop every photo to remove unnecessary pixels. Read More…
