Forget about simik DSLR if you want people to see you 'UP PRO' portrait photographer. Dunno wat not H3D also CMI.
Use this instead: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=682630 and attach a digital back to it.
If your subjects can't keep still for at least 3 minutes while you focus, they don't deserve you! :-)

Use whatever feels comfortable for you.
While it's fashionable to say 'it's the man behind the bla bla bla', working well with human subjects encompass far more than a capable camera and good lens. That's only 5-10% of what's actually required so might as well settle that small percentage and don't let the equipment 'issues' bother you.
A H3D is indeed a scary beast! It's amazing what the imacon based sensor and Fujinon lenses can do! BBB!

Next is, The reason for my earlier post is. When person A buys a 1Ds mkIII but shoots crap. He can still churn up sth in photoshop that looks like an abstract art piece and still sell it to his customers. But the problem they don't see is. As the time goes on, and they improve their photography skills, they basically just killed themselves. Because the customers after going through a million other photographers selling the same thing are now disillusioned that any photographer can produce the same result if its by means of a latest camera and photoshop. Every Visual Graphic is now an amazing photograph! Please take note i mentioned Visual Graphic and not Photograph.
So in simple words. A Major part of the consumer market is changing to not be able to tell the difference between a very strong technically good photograph VS a blah image these days. To me thats just shooting yourself in the foot cos of our own short foresights.
So Back to topic, "Expensive camera needed for Portrait Photography?"
My answer: YES OF COS! the more expensive the better so i can tell my clients that i can leave my camera on the table at the job and stay at home and still produce amazing images.
when you say you want to sell camera, I tot you were him..... lol
btw, I just try to google, but che bo leh, don't know where is he now.
After 90+ posts down the thread, I am sure he wants a D90 and had already decided even before he asked.
So I say go for it.
Revisit this thread after a few months or even a year later and see if the decision is still sound.

i can't say they don't deserve me...haha..since i'm the one asking for favour. Imagine for street photography or other kinds of portrait shoot u keep smiling and the photographer keep taking time to focus...even when he click the shutter the focus could be wrong...haha...
