A new idea for D-SLRs, the D90 offers a movie function, allowing you to shoot movies in three different motion JPEG formats: 320 x 216 pixels, 640 x 424 pixels and 1,280 x 720 pixels. Now you can capture life’s moving moments with added drama by using many of Nikon’s NIKKOR lenses, including the AF DX Fisheye 10.5mm f/2.8G ED and the Micro-NIKKOR lenses. The shallow depth of field can give your movies a more creative and emotional impact. An additional benefit is the D90 image sensor, which is much larger than a typical camcorder for higher image quality and exceptional high ISO performance during low-light shooting.
*Autofocus is not available when recording movies. Matrix metering is used regardless of the metering method selected.
Thanks to the D90’s exceptional high ISO performance, you can shoot beautiful night scenery, which can be difficult with typical camcorders.
One of the benefits of shooting movies with D90 is using the shallow depth of field to show off the main subject.
