The Chase Jarvis 'blog gets da scoop on the new Nikon D90, a digital SLR that also shoots 720p video...
I think a corner has been turned.
In the short term this is a major tremor before some more seismic imaging gear comes down the road.
The D90 will enable photographers to shoot video using their existing Nikon lenses, with all the control over depth of field that they offer...one of the things that tends to hobble existing small chip video cameras, requiring lens adaptor workarounds for that elusive 'film look'.
You'll be burning through a LOT of camera cards, and I'm not sure how good the sound is gonna be, but for photojournalistic short-form web video, this is a total game changer.
