If you’re going to pick up the new Nikon D90, you’ll most certainly be interested in this new 18-105 f3.5-5.6 DX VR lens. Designed to go hand-in-hand with the D90, this DX-format, high-power 5.8x zoom lens has a 35mm format focal length equivalent of roughly 28-160mm. Useful in a broad range of shooting settings (from wide-angle landscapes and interiors to portraits and medium-range sports), it features a built-in Silent Wave Motor, giving you speedy & accurate autofocus while keeping you stealthy & unobtrusive. The built-in Vibration Reduction lets you take sharper handheld pictures while you shoot at shutter speeds up…

Not to be left behind, Canon has presented to the masses it’s replacement to the EOS 40D… the EOS 50D (didn’t see that coming, did you?) Mainly targeted against the Nikon D300, the EOS 50D holds quite a few significant improvements over the 40D. For starters, it features a 15.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, as well as a faster DIGIC 4 processor. It has an ISO sensitivity that’s expandable to 12800 as well as a 3″ VGA LCD monitor with a Live View mode that offers 3 AF modes. And since we’re on the subject of the LCD – this one…

The Nikon D5000 is bit of a step up from your standard entry-level DSLR. It has the same sensor size as the D90 and D60 (but with the same megapixel count – 12.3 – as the D90) and features video capture and a spiffy 360-degree twist articulating LCD. So not only can you shoot with the versatility of Live View shooting, you can get a comfortable shot from pretty much any shooting perspective. As with the D90, the D5000 includes Nikon’s D-Movie function that allos you to shoot JPEG movie clips. This particular model captures clips at 1,280 x 720…

When you can shoot HD movie footage with your DSLR (and now even point & shoots have joined the ranks of HD-capture capability), it was only a matter of time before this announcement’s arrival: The first feature film shot on a DSLR. Yep – your heard correctly. Shot on the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Searching for Sonny earns indie director Andrew Disney the right to promote his film with this claim to fame. But Nikon fans needn’t feel slighted – word is, the crew used Nikon lenses with Canon’s powerhouse body.

In addition to its 12.1-megapixel sensor & 3x optical zoom, the PowerShot D10 is waterproof up to 33 feet, cold resistant to -10°C (14°F) and shockproof up to 4 feet (I still wouldn’t recommended dropping it from a glacier face). This little gem sounds like the perfect vacation accessory – regardless of where your passport takes you. The blue faceplate can be changed for one of three replacement front covers that come in orange, gray or a funky camo print. There’s even a handy dandy carabiner strap so you can be hands-free when the occasion calls for it. But this…
