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.
