I took @jasonjclement‘s Nikon D90 out for a video test drive yesterday. It performed very well, I must say. Certainly a huge jump for someone who is used to inferior optics when it comes to video. Even using expensive video cameras, even HD cams, I’ve thought a million times (underestimating, actually), “Man, I wish I could get the optics of my DSLRs with video capability.” And that’s just what the D90 is. Shot with a Nikon 18-200mm f1:3.5-5.6, no color correction. While I like it immensely, and believe Nikon is a superior camera for still, all reviews say that the Canon T2i is a better fit if your sole intent is shooting HD video (which is what I’m doing), so I’ll be purchasing that unit, and likewise plan on reviewing it. For a full review on both cameras, read the best one I’ve found on the web to date here. ch:
