Nikon D90 Released

Posted: August 27, 2008 in Photography

The Nikon D80 I asked my friend to buy for me is still with him in Tokyo. Actually I asked him to send to me through a friend of mine visiting Cambodia since last week. I am supposed to meet her and get the camera the day after tomorrow; however, he could not meet her as he got an urgent trip to Nagoya. And today, 27 August 2008, Nikon released D90 as a replacement for the D80, even before I can get my D80 in my hands. A little bit shock. I did not expect it to come so soon.

Some of the improvements the D90 offers over the D80 include 12.3 megapixel resolution and live view capability. The D90 is also notable for being the first DSLR to offer video recording, with the ability to record HD 720p videos at 24 frames per second.

    Actually I have already bought the D80, though it is still with a friend of mine in Tokyo. He said he will ask his friend to bright it here this late September.

    こんにちは Bong Phal!久しぶりですが、お元気しているでしょうか?

    たまたまの暇時間でクメール学生のブログを読んで、突然Bong Phalのブログを発見しました。

    ちなみに、来年の春から僕は株式ニコンに技術者として働くことになりますが、まったくニコンカメラのことは知らなくて、Bong Phalの記事を読むと自分が恥ずかしいと思います。:)

    I know how you feel. I got my D300 in April and then in just a month or two, there was a rumor about D700. I was a bit pissed; but then I thought it’s alright technology always evolves and changes. If we keep waiting for the best one to come, we might end up waiting indefinite. When I was visiting Japan this August, I bought the PSP 2000. Guess what? On my return to Sydney, Sony was planning to release PSP 3000. Grrr…

    By the way, I wish I could read those kanji and hiragana posted in the comments above.

    Hi Kenno. Thank for dropping by. I can see that you really love gadgets and you must have spent your fortunes on them. Surprisingly my friend Chanty Rotha commending this post above was offered a job as technical engineer at Nikon Corporation. He will start his job from next Spring.
