The Chronicle Project over on Vimeo took Nikon’s latest DSLR, the D90, and pitted its HD video capability against a true, $5200 high-def camcorder, the Panasonic HVX200. It’s a tad surprising that while the HVX does beat out the D90 in resolution and clarity, the D90 has better color depth and an overall fine picture. Camera geeks will point out that both pictures could be better with proper white balancing, a lens hoods, and a VR lens on the D90, but you really should check out the video ’cause it does a great job illustrating the point of these new DSLR’s can record great HD. Jump over to Vimeo to see the HD version – after all, the video is comparing HD cameras.
