Why would you care that "the LCD can be swung out to be rotated or tilted, opening the door to all kinds of contorted body positions when shooting images."


Does this mean that the LCD can be used to frame a picture?  Why?!  The whole idea of an SLR (digital or not) is that you  can see what you are taking a picture of through the lens.  Have you ever tried to take a picture with one of those "point and shoot" cameras with only an LCD screen to frame the picture, in bright sunlight?  Good luck!  Sounds like an accessory that is completely useless.

In a bizarre move that shows how little the camera industry understands what it is they've created Canon offers two cameras that shoot HD video at either 30fps or 20fps. As far as I know, there's no 24fps option.

Luckily Nikons do. The D90 shoots stunning professional quality video and give users access to film-like depth of field as well as their whole line of lenses. This is the kind of stuff people pay $5,000 or more for.

Now if they'd only fix that freaking shutter-roll...
