Nikon’s new D90 takes you to the movies

Hot on the heels of Canon's announcement of the EOS 50D comes Nikon's announcement of its forthcoming D90.

Nikon UK today announces another great step forward in its mid-class DX-format D-SLR range: the D90.

As the world's first D-SLR with movie function, this remarkable camera offers truly cinematic results, stunning image quality and innovative high-performance features inherited from Nikon's new-generation DX-format flagship D300. The D90 will open new doors for photography enthusiasts of any level.

With 12.3 megapixels, the newly-designed DX-format CMOS image sensor and Nikon's proprietary EXPEED image processing concept, the D90 is a quality-guarantee. Advanced features such as Live View, Scene Recognition, Active D-Lighting, Picture Control and an ISO sensitivity range of 200-3200 (ISO 6400 equivalent on Hi1 and ISO 100 equivalent on Lo1), allows creativity in almost any setting. And to ensure all these features are easy to use, they are packed in an ergonomic body with an intuitive operational layout.

Canon EOS 50D announced!

The EOS 50D: Outstanding speed and resolution for the discerning photographer

The digital SLR that photography enthusiasts have been waiting for, Canon's new EOS 50D offers incredible speed and resolution at a unique price point.

An outstanding 15.1 Megapixel resolution allows giant prints and cropping without compromise. This is matched by shooting at 6.3 frames per second in bursts of up to 90 shots[1]. See every wing beat of a bird in flight. Freeze a mid-air leap, or a split-second facial expression. With the EOS 50D, it's possible to capture those instants that slower cameras can miss.

A new high resolution 3.0" Clear View LCD screen provides ultra-detailed image review, as well as accurate focusing when using the Live View mode. Canon's 9-point AF system tracks moving subjects and locks onto stationary objects with equal ease. As night falls, base ISO levels can be pushed up to 3200 – or expanded to 12800 for situations where flash is best avoided. 

Plus – as with all EOS cameras – creative flexibility is assured, thanks to Canon's world-leading range of lenses and accessories.


    * 15.1 MP (APS-C) CMOS sensor
    * 6.3 fps with up to 90 JPEG image burst
    * DIGIC 4 processor

Current iPods seem to be on their way out

Various sources are saying that the current iPod line-up is about to be replaced, with a new version of the iPod Touch being touted as one of the new models.

AppleInsider, for one, is quoting retail sources as saying that all current iPod models have been moved from 'active' status to 'discontinued' by Apple.

Industry analysts are also reporting that Apple needs to act in order to stimulate the market for its ground-breaking music player if it is to maintain its pre-eminent place in the market.

So, its looking like there will be price-cuts to clear inventory in the next few weeks, possibly as soon as this coming week, before a new line of iPods is introduced. The other approach Apple could take of course, is to keep prices the same but increase the specification. However, the current iPod Touch range is looking expensive when compared to the new 3G iPhone, so it will probably see a price cut, even if the rest of the range doesn't.

Product Image
Checking the UK Apple Store, the iPod Classic is still listed as shipping in 24 hours for the 80GB and 160GB versions. I guess this means that they haven't yet run down their stocks entirely yet. If this changes I'll let you know.
