    • EaGle1337

        What got me was the title – “D5000 DOCUMENTARY”. It seems we went from ad, to info-mercial to an outright lie by calling an ad a documentary. A real documentary would have black tape over the brand names etc.

    well aren’t you guys jealous of 6 years olds running around with D5000 prototypes? 😛

    • yeah, did nobody see those kids?

      • NikoDoby

        Come on NikonRumors, those kids were your inside source for all your info weren’t they!

        • yes, I bribed them with candy 🙂

          • Marc W

            Does this mean it’s a kids camera? OOHHHHHH

  • Newbie

    I’d like to see video of the Dubrovnik dude.

  • Bob Agens`

    The video still does that jelly thing…

      if that really bothers you, buy a sony HDR-FX7 for god’s sakes. only $2,000 USD and have manual controls ((focusing, aperture, shutter speed, WB, everything))

        Why shouldn’t i want a decent video from this camera? It is part of the feature list, it is sold as a video-capable camera and Canon somehow solved this issue.
        Just because it’s a new feature i have to close my eyes to the fact that it sucks?

        • When did Canon solve this issue? They make great video cameras, but even some of their video cameras have a rolling shutter/jello cam issue. And the 5dmkii certainly does too. Where’s this Canon solution?

          You know what bothers me more than that? I can hear the VR running on my 70-200mm lens. Now THAT is a usability issue.

    • So it’s offering basically the same rolling shutter problem as the D90 has. Wow, way to go Nikon!

      I’m developing a batch program for Nikon D90 (and the upcoming D5000) movie clips which will remove the “stair-stepping” and minimize the rolling shutter lag, outputing a lossless video file for further post-processing.
      Currently the main features are:

      Nikon D90 Stair-step and Rolling Shutter fix batch script
      – Batch processing of all video files in the working catalog
      – Stair-stepping removal acc. to Lee Wilson’s fix
      – Specific rolling shutter fix – (yet to be optimized)
      – (Optional) stabilisation to eliminate shakiness when hand-held
      – Output in lossless (Huffyuv) video codec – (yet to be optimized)

      Test 1 – Before and after:

      I would need some original short video clips for testing and optimizing. More info here:

    I just almost believe that Nikon D5K is waterproof! Ha~ it can be thrown into sea water and brought back in a good shape!

    • Dweeb

      Arrrrh, surely you mean, “Walk the Plank, matey”?

  • Siletto

    Hmmm, what lens was the kids using? I’m pretty sure it’s not new, just wondering. 18-200?

    • fry26

      Definetely not a zoom – lens has only one ring. Never seen a Nikkor lens of that shape especially not with a golden ring. Looks like a non G-type.

      • fry26

        could be the 105 mm f2.8 macro lens

  • Ian Dudley

    Whether or not the video is any better than the D90, which seems unlikely, the promos shown here are simply a disgrace, and are typical of the negative, trendy-but-pointless style of young media types today. This is Nikon, makers of the world’s best SLRs for 50 years, yet the video shows idiot film-making skills, which would not sell me anything. Kick out the marketing team and go back to emphasising core values – quality, quality, quality.

    • Agreed. Especially with the grainy hot-spot covered pics as samples. I can’t believe that a production model would take pics like that.

    • Joergen

      Agreed, something just broke inside me……, I will try to forget what I saw today….

  • Erik

    Lol! The kids are acting a part for the 2nd commercial viedo. Look at the lips from the girl at 1:18. How can she know the text ;). Hope that there isn’t everything played by script.

    You ever feel like you just got kicked in the gut by the big bully on the playground

    I’m certainly not buying this camera. In fact, I am seriously thinking of switching to Canon.
    I recognize the consumer market is far larger than the professional market and that segment drives sales. However professionals still want and frankly demand good products. Good images are what I (we) want and frankly I cant stand shooting with a DX sensor anymore.
    What I was hoping for here was Nikon’s answer to the 5d MkII. Looks like that aint happening anytime soon.
    Bye, Nikon.

      The consumer market of canon is also large. I think your just a megapixel-junkie because the D700 havent enough for you, right? 😉

      • Bill

        I’m not a megapixel junkie. I still shoot Tri-X if thats a sign of much I’m NOT a MP junkie. There are just certain tools out there (like a good hybrid dSLR) that make life easier for professionals. The news and how its delivered to consumers is changing dramatically. A hybrid dSLR makes that delivery easier.
        This camera might appeal to my Mom and brothers. A lot of my colleagues who shoot Nikon are wishing there was a serious reply to Canon’s machine.

  • Nikon

    Bye, Bill.

  • Ben O.

    I wonder how many of these they went through to film this extravaganza? I wouldn’t let those kids anywhere near my gear. Running around in the sand and the water – wave bye-bye to that lens.

  • xd
