    Smile Side by side: D5000, D90 quick comparison

    I did a very quick comparison of the Nikon D5000 and Nikon D90. If you are wondering how they compare in weight and size, buffer, shutter sound, LCD quality and how they actually look sitting side by side, check it out. Hopefully this clip will provide some useful information to those who cannot make it to the local camera store and handle both cameras.

    top entry.
    Thanks for looking. All questions and comments welcome.
    Forgot to mention the memory cards used in both cameras are Class 6 SDHC.
    Cheers,
    Mike

    I noticed in the beginning of the video you said both cameras have an FX sensor.. That is incorrect. They both have DX sensors.

    What kind of lenses do you have on those bodies? Never seen anything like that before.

    No sound here at work but it looks interesting.

    Do you own both? I'm curious why somebody with a D90 would buy a D5000 if that's the case.

    r3g, did i say fx, grrrr. wishful thinking, sorry for the mistake. lensbabies, manual focus and no electronic communication whatsoever. lots of fun. only the center is sharp :O) one can move the sweetspot around by tilting the lens elements.
    cheers, mike

    What did you see in the D5000 video mode that made you buy it just for video?

    jcon, the video mode is basically identical to the D90. Just the swivel LCD. makes it much easier to shoot video.

    I know its identical, thats why I asked your reasoning for buying it for that purpose.

    Just curious, what do you plan to record with it?

    thanks mike. nice comparison and some beautiful images. thanks also for showing how video in a dslr can be useful to people and indeed adds another dimension of creativity. the way you used video is exactly the same way i have been looking at using it. short, simple clips allowing me to use one piece of equipment with outstanding results. The L train is brilliant.
