Making a video takes too much time; I do have a DV cam, but in my opinion it takes to long to rewind, connect the firewire cable, transfer the clip to the PC etc. etc. My Nikon D90 also has video capabilities, but I’ve used it maybe once or twice in the beginning. The D90 can shoot 1280×720@24 fps MJPEG movies. I used it a couple of times again while we were on holiday and the results were quite good; although i still prefer my DV cam: focusing is slow and a bit difficult with the D90.
Here’s a small clip of my test with a JeeNode and 4 LED strip remainders i still had from my kitchen LED adventure.
