Dear English-speaking readers, this page is an automatic Google translation from a post originally written in French. My apologies for the weird sentences and the funny mistakes that could have been generated during the process. If you can read French, the original and correct version can be found here:
Argh! That's it, it exists: a digital SLR that also makes video! Like the compacts! ! ! The kind of camera I dream of to accompany me on my travels ... A technomade dream, as my colleague would say Marie-Julie Gagnon. The toy is called D90 and it's Nikon that he has done.
It will be marketed in September, in the 950 €. Well, for that price, I will not be able to offer it anytime soon. Especially that I feel forced to invest at the same time in the underwater box that goes well (and it is not given either, these little beasts).
But if Nikon starts, the others will follow. In a year or two, the technologies will improve, competitors will position themselves, prices will drop, and we can find opportunities.
The thing that hallucinates me is that the video can be in HD quality and benefit from the same optical settings as in photo mode (depth of field, etc.). We really change era, in the field of digital cameras.
