Seems like Nikon had a great idea with D-Movie but their initial attempt with the D90 is a bit lackluster especially with all the hype they put out. BTW, I loved the hype, just wish they followed through a bit more seriously. Basically, here's what I've gathered from the trailing end of the DVXuser.com thread. -Rolling shutter(google it if you need to) is a huge problem. Way more pronounced than dedicated consumer cameras. This is the jello effect BTW. -Exposure can be locked but shutter speed can't be set manually. In order to get a specific shutter speed, you have to compose the camera at a light/dark source and then lock the exposure which locks the shutter. Not sure if its even possible to check the value of the shutter that is locked. The rear LCD shutter speed reading is apparently for still shooting and not representative of the value used during movie recording. -Aperture can be changed but you have to exit LV, change and re-enter LV. All in all I think Nikon has a lot of work to do but considering its all software related, its not that bleak of a situation. I just hope they have the initiative to fix things.
