After showing up in Circuit City’s inventory, it didn’t take long for an industrious Best Buy employee to capture this screenshot of the Nikon D90 in Best Buy’s inventory. It appears to offer the same specs and pricing revealed by the Circuit City leak a couple days ago. [via endgadget]

Nikon D90 Confirmed, Priced at $1299.95 With 18-105mm VR Kit Lens

Nikon Rumors received a tip from a reader that Circuit City already has the Nikon D90 listed in its inventory system.  The tipsters stated the following:

I have some D90 info. I work for Circuit City. While checking our DSLR inventory I noticed that the Nikon D90 with an 18-105mm VR lens was listed as an active SKU in our system. The price came up at $1299.99. I started a ticket and it was actually letting me special order the camera. The Web ID for the camera is NIK D90KIT18105VR. I don’t know if this will stay in the system but anyone should be able to special order a D90 from a Circuit City store using that SKU if it doesn’t change.

Muller Photo, a French electronics seller, has posted product pages for the Sony A900 and Canon EOS 7D.  While neither page divulges anything regarding the cameras’ specifications, Muller Photo lists prices for both cameras.

  • Their price for the Canon EOS 7D is EUR 2990 (Source).
  • And, their price for the the Sony A900 is EUR 2490 (Source).

Whether Muller Photo knows something the rest of us don’t remains to be seen.  Muller Photo could just be capitalizing on some free press by listing these product pages.

Nikon D90 Specs – Solid Info

Thom Hogan is feeling pretty confident on his information and has posted what are believed to be the actual specs of the new Nikon D90, which is expected to be announced shortly.

The Nikon D90 will feature the following specs:

  • 12 megapixels
  • 4.5 frames per second
  • Live View with VIDEO (and audio) CAPTURE – yes, you read that right
  • HDMI connection
  • GPS connection
  • Kit lens is an 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G DX VR (28-150mm equivalent on 35mm)

Clearly, Nikon is aiming to one-up the previous generation DSLRs with specs like these.  The video capture will surely be a big selling point in the consumer market.

I’ll withhold my thoughts for know, but I want to know: What do you think about video capture in the Nikon D80 replacement?

Photography Bay will stay on top of the news and rumors to the bitter end and beyond.  Stay tuned.
