Nikon D90

The rumours have it that Nikon is about to reveal the D90 camera. It is said to have the following features:

  • 4.5 frames per second shooting speed
  • 12 megapixel resolution sensor
  • live view with video recording capability (and thus the camera is fitted with a microphone as well)!
  • a new kit lens, 18-105/3.5-5.6G with VR-II vibration reduction capability

I am sure that more information will be hitting the presses soon…
