    Moral of the story, if you wanna look cool buy a Nikon. I'm comfy being a loser so I'll stick with Canon.

    They totally could have done a similar ad with a bunch of 450Ds too. Shame on Canon.

    yeah they could have....they'd just need 20 of them to get anywhere close to the fps required...

    I had to stop watching the D90 vid about 1/3 of the way through. It was trying too hard.
    Ouch.

    I don't think I even made it that far. I was turned off by the jerky camera work, the vomit-inducing soundtrack and the guy talking sounded like a twit.

    I personally think the Chase Jarivs and friends video was excellent. I don't think Canon Marketing could come any where near as creative as that.

    I liked the Jarvis video too, but I don't think it was more creative. It was just different, it appeals to a different audience. That's sorta my original point. Nikon is like the Apple of cameras where Canon is turning into the PC. In reality I don't think you can say one is better then the other so they attach coolness to their products to attract buyers or simply market themselves to a different demographic.

    I hope Nikon isn't changing to Apple, or soon we'll see silver/white glossy SLR cameras. Then some time after that, Nikon Nano comes in colorful glossy SLR cameras :P. And months after, the Nikon Touch, with touchscreen LCD and sleek glossy black SLR casing :P.

    Back to the topic, I really liked the video. The final results can be watched here: http://chsvimg.nikon.com/products/im...90/en/d-movie/
