What Nikon D90 Owners Are Missing Out from Nikon D300

Thought of doing this trivial article for a long time but never got the chance to do it until today - compare Nikon D90 against the Nikon D300 from the functional perspective (not image quality perspective).

Here's a complete list of what we, Nikon D90 owners do not have on our camera

1. 1005-segment RGB sensor
2. Lens data input capability of non-CPU lens for color matrix metering
3. Up to 9 frames bracketing capabilities between -5/+5 EV
4. 51-point CAM 3500DX AF module
5. 1/8000 second shutter speed
6. 150,000 shuttle life
7. 100% frame coverage viewfinder
8. 14-bit file format
9. 6 to 8 FPS release mode
10. Tripod Live view Mode
11. Ten-pin remote terminal
12. Weather-sealing body
13. Magnesium Alloy construction

For all that, you will need to pay an additional $400 from a Nikon D90. Quite neat if you think about it...

There's always a better camera out there. That's the problem with this hobby / profession. Tough not to get caught up in the hype.
