I want to get some DOF shots. Mainly shooting weddings. Would need these shots during bride getting ready or couple doing photo shoot. I am torn between getting a 35mm adapter like Brevis35 MP.1 (non flipped) for my HMC150 and the Nikon D90. I shoot 720p/24. I already own a Nikon D80 with a lots of lenses. Any input would be appreciated.

For weddings I'd buy a D90. You can intercut it with your HMC and not loose shots due to bad focus, changing lenses, or out of alignment ground glass. Since you're shooting live, I'd be more interested in getting the coverage than making 3 or 4 stunning shots per gig and having nothing to cut them with. Besides, a "non flipped brevis" would make your rig too heavy and too cumbersome for handheld work.

If you don't like the video of the D90, you can still use it to double your still image capabilities.
