    The new Nikon D90, retailing for approx. $1000 in the USA, can also
    do movies with sound. This means you can use your Nikon lenses from
    Micro to Telephoto and shoot digital videos as well as still images.

    Why did you buy a monitor that's not compliant with a 12mp camera? Do you
    enjoy seeing only 17% of the pixels your camera captured? Or do you enjoy
    scrolling back and forth to see each sixth of your pictures at full
    resolution?

    Alan Browne may be naïve about what he is actually seeing on his hi
    definition television, regardless of whether or not it is rated at 1080p,
    unless he only watches Bluray connected through HDMI. However if he has any
    kind of LCD panel he is not seeing what he thinks he is seeing, regardless
    of specs.
    The 790p video format in the D90 is a logical evolution for any cameras with
    live view.
    Alan Brown is lucky if anything he sees on his hi def television even
    approaches the potential of the quality of the video images the D90 should
    easily be capable of rendering.
    In fact most tests show that viewers cannot distinguish a 1080 from a 720
    resolution image at normal viewing distances. This is why, apart from cost,
    Bluray has been a market dud to date.
    I swore I would sit out at least two generations more of Nikon dSLRs but the
    announced specs of the D90 have definitely gotten my attention.
    If initial reviews of production D90s support Nikon's first published
    descriptions I may not be able to resist.

    Some people find joy, pleasure and happiness. Others find rubbish,
    misery and unhappiness. Unfortunately too many of the latter post
    here.

    "behing"? That's "behind", but I guess you were just drooling to
    get your little missive out and couldn't type patiently.

    What a laugh! Thanks, eh?. :)

    "Consumers" != "Upper End." BD and 1080p displays are still in "early
    adopter gearhead" mode years after introduction. The market for the D90
    isn't going to care about 1080p video, because that market doesn't have
    1080p televisions.

    "Most titles"? You must believe moviemaking started in 2003.

    seen that variant (of the term) before...... :)

    I'll bet the movies for that cost $5,000 each
    Or for $17,000 you can make your own:

    And use your old SLR lenses.

    Your credibility drops another notch, Mr. Mendacity. There's no
    way that you can convince anyone that you were trying to help Mr.
    Trouble save face. Just the opposite, you were trying to insult and
    bait him. You didn't appreciate being told that you were naïve,
    responding with this :
    Not a laugh of happiness, I'd say. Rather your usual smug,
    supercilious reply intended to imply that you know better. Then :
    Do you think anyone is really gullible enough to think that this
    wasn't more of the same? Nope, only someone with a real nasty
    streak would point out a typo this way. Most people would consider
    that to be such an obvious typo as to not be worthy of comment.

    Then your closing comment, complete with disingenuous smiley.
    Yep. That "proves" that you're just being Mr. Nice Guy, doesn't
    it? If you were a nicer guy and had a better attitude, perhaps
    your shootin would be more popular. After all of the insults, this
    would hardly be expected to entice 'trouble' into joining your
    shootin.

    But I do hope it's a resounding success. :)

    [see how that works?]

    I'm glad that nobody spoiled this for you, and that you were able
    to respond in a face-saving manner when That80sGuy graciously
    pointed out your mistake, one which wasn't even a simple typo. :)

    Do you know of any 12MP monitors?

    I just measured that at 646 x 1278 (maximized, turned off scaling, did a
    screen cap, cropped in irfanview). About the same as D90 output.

    I haven't hardly bothered compiling my DSLR time lapse videos bigger
    than 720 wide because it's so demanding to process & play (and because I
    barely have a clue how to work with video :) but I shoot them on a D200
    with the built in timer at 'small' 1936 x 1296 which I thought was
    preposterously too large but I guess not, it's just a tad larger than
    blu ray. I suppose some live video would be fun to include with those
    now that I think of it but it really is tough working with video.

    Nope. It's *you* suffering from an obsession. I notice that
    after making that ridiculous claim about S.I. photographers not
    being good enough to produce a single great shot from 15,000 taken
    at the Super Bowl, you thought it best to hide and not reply when it
    was shown that you took that claim out of context, probably not
    understanding that the article demonstrated the exact opposite. The
    quote above happens to be 100% accurate, and just states the facts.
    Your M.O. is to slyly insult with *really* faint praise. That way
    you can satisfy your nasty streak while pretending to be oh so nice.
    And you don't improve your image by saying "dude", dude. :)

    Well, it's good that you recognize that your conscience isn't
    quite up to snuff, but I was only providing an apt hypocrisy alert.
    I rarely point out typos that I notice, but when I do it's almost
    always when I find some humor in it that's worth mentioning. You,
    on the other hand, used the typo to launch more of your insults, so
    it was fitting that you almost immediately made a mistake of your
    own, and it wasn't even a simple, careless typo. Karma calling?

    Not entirely true. 1080p TVs are only really just taking off, most (my
    plasma 42" included) run 1024x768 or 1366x768. NOT 1080P. Granted
    there ARE 1080p TVs available and they are falling in price all the
    time but check your facts of the HD ready TVs against the Full HD
    (1080p) compliant TVs.

    Don't let statistics interfere with Alan's navel gazing research. Canada

    I was pointing out the stupidity of Alan's post.

    I can do the same for you, though you seem to be handling it well without
    my assistance.
