Nikon D90 Goes 3D

StereoPortraitProjectRig-nikon-d90

That’s 2 Nikon D90s rigged to be about the same distance apart as the human eyes.

The Stereo Portrait Project was put together by Alex Fry and Jamie Nimmo.  These guys assembled the custom rig shown above to capture Anaglyphic 3D images.  They’ve even put together a book featuring their 3D images.

Head over to Nikon Rumors for a full rundown of the setup and art behind the Stereo Portrait Project.

Nikon D90 Image Leak?

Is this an image of the new Nikon D90? It’s the best one I’ve seen so far. What do you think?

UPDATE: Thom Hogan says: “The picture is accurate and appears to be real (and NOT the pictures I have).” [via]

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?

More Nikon D90 Rumors, By the Numbers

Thom Hogan may be having a little fun with us based on info that he’s received from sources within or close to Nikon.  In a recent forum post, Thom threw out some numbers while discussing the rumored Nikon D90.  These were tossed around by Thom in response to a silly lottery number question.

Try something like 12, 4.5, 3, 11, 90, and 105. For the bonus number use 1080.

While it may seem rather trite, Nikon Rumors has read a little deeper into these and given us their interpretation of the winning numbers:

12mp, 4.5FPS, 3″ LCD, 11 point AF, D90, 105mm lens and 1080 video recording.

I think Thom is enjoying himself (and probably passing along good info too).  Kudos to NR for reading between the lines.  I remain a bit skeptical on the 1080 video “recording”.  I would expect if that number is for real it has to do more with the interface and compatibility with high-def devices – much like Sony has done in recent history.
