hold the camera using a 500 mm lens for 3-4 seconds exposure and never show any shake in the finished picture no matter how slow a speed I use---I think this camera will put all other makers out of business ! ! Nikon D90 Specifications Revealed
As many of you know, I have a reliable source inside Nikon R&D. As such, I get detailed information about new Nikon models long before anyone else.

Without further ado, here are the details of the Nikon D90 DSLR, which is to replace the D80.

Universal Vibration Reduction (uVR)
The new D90 incorporates an optional feature called Universal Vibration Reduction (uVR). This turns all lenses into uVR lenses, and offers a 10-stop advantage.

This means a person using a 500mm lens, who would normally have to shoot at 1/500th of a second, can shoot at 2 seconds when uVR is enabled.

The new uVR system isn't sensor based, and instead requires one of the three optional vertical battery grips (see below). In this case, the MB-D90a is required. This grip provides all the normal controls and extended battery life of a regular grip. It also holds 8 EN-EL4a batteries, along with a step-up transformer.

With uVR enabled, the combined power of the batteries sends a current through the step-up transformer. This then delivers a 110 volt shock through metal pads around the grip. The resulting electrical shock matches the shutter speed (maximum of 10 seconds).

The shock causes a very stable clenching of the photographer's muscles while the shutter is open, simulating the stability of a tripod.

Nikon advise that people with rubber-soled shoes, heart problems or pacemakers shouldn't use uVR.

The uVR facility can also be controlled remotely by Nikon Support, via the new Nikon satellite network outlined below. This ensures Nikon Support can intentionally punish users who complain about how the new D90 is missing a particular feature they expected to see.

For example, the D80 didn't feature a military-grade titanium shell with platinum casing, and some people felt this was unforgivable in a camera that costs $800. Nikon Support will now be able to give those people exactly what they deserve


Man, I don't know about that one, I'd probably throw it. Sounds like a good joke on someone though.N/T
