Nikon D90 DX Digital SLR Highlights
Nikon Digital SLR image quality
The D90 incorporates a newly developed DX-format CMOS image sensor with technology directly inherited from the D300, Nikon's DX-format flagship. With its 12.3 effective megapixels and extraordinarily high signal-to-noise ratio, the D90 delivers low-noise images with detail and tonal gradation beyond your expectations, while Nikon's Integrated Dust Reduction System works to free image-degrading dust particles from the sensor's optical low-pass filter.
The D90 captures up to 4.5 images per second. Accurate 11-point autofocus is now even faster and more intelligent, aided by Nikon's exclusive Scene Recognition System. The unique Nikon 420-pixel 3D Color Matrix II Metering system, now enhanced by EXPEED image processing technologies, delivers extraordinary exposure accuracy -- immediately evident when reviewing images on the D90's super-density 3-inch 920,000-dot color LCD monitor.
New D-Movie Mode Features 720p HD cinematic quality
A new idea for D-SLRs, the D90 offers a movie function, allowing you to shoot movies in three different motion JPEG formats: 320 x 216 pixels, 640 x 424 pixels and 1,280 x 720 pixels. Now you can capture life's moving moments with added drama by using many of Nikon's NIKKOR lenses, including the AF DX Fisheye 10.5mm f/2.8G ED and the Micro-NIKKOR lenses. The shallow depth of field can give your movies a more creative and emotional impact. An additional benefit is the D90 image sensor, which is much larger than a typical camcorder for higher image quality and exceptional high ISO performance during low-light shooting.
5.8x AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR included
Famous Nikkor optical quality in a compact, versatile design, featuring Nikon VR image stabilization.
Continuous shooting as fast as 4.5 frames-per-second
The D90 captures crucial moments thanks to its impressive 0.15-second start-up time, 65-millisecond shutter-release time lag (CIPA standard) and ability to shoot at 4.5 frames a second for up to 100 shots*.
Low noise ISO sensitivity from 200 to 3200
The D90 gives you the freedom to shoot in a remarkably wide variety of lighting conditions, including dimly lit scenes, without worrying about image-degrading noise. ISO can be raised as high as Hi 1 (ISO 6400 equivalent) or lowered to Lo 1 (ISO 100 equivalent).
3-inch super-density 920,000-dot color LCD monitor
The D90's 3-in., approx. 920k-dot LCD monitor provides unprecedented quality of image display. A wide 170-degree viewing angle makes it easy to confirm focus after shooting or during Live View.
Built-in image sensor cleaning
Effective 4-frequency, ultrasonic sensor cleaning frees image degrading dust particles from the sensor's optical low pass filter.
11-point AF system with Face Priority
Thanks to Multi-CAM 1000 autofocus module, the D90's 11-point AF system has fast and precise autofocus coverage across the frame with the most sensitive AF sensor operating from the center.
In addition, the D90 has versatile AF-area modes to handle most shooting situations. The center focus point can be switched from normal to wide according to the movement of the subject.
One-button Live View
With the D90's Live View function, you can shoot effectively without looking through the viewfinder. Simply press dedicated Live View button for instant access. Three contrast-detect AF modes let you focus on any point in the frame.
Nikon 3D Color Matrix Metering II with Scene Recognition System
Nikon's renowned 420-pixel RGB 3D Color Matrix Metering II, teamed with the exclusive Scene Recognition System, evaluates images, referencing an on-board database of over 30,000 photographic scenes, for unmatched exposure accuracy.
Advance Scene Modes
When you're not sure which camera settings are appropriate, simply rely on the Advanced Scene Modes. Just turn the mode dial to the appropriate icon: Portrait, Landscape, Close-up, Sports or Night Portrait. Unlike traditional scene modes, the D90 will automatically optimize the exposure, image processing, Active D-Lighting, and Picture Control to get the most out of your subject matter. What's more, the D90 has exceptional low-noise performance and accurately adjusts the camera settings whether VR (Vibration Reduction) is activated or not, so you can expect beautiful, crisp images, even in many low-light scenes.
Auto Active D-Lighting
Details in the shadows and highlighted areas of your photos are often lost when strong lighting increases the contrast between the bright and dark areas of your image. Nikon's unique Active D-Lighting technology accurately restores these important details by localizing tone control while you shoot. Choose from four levels, including the new Extra High. Active D-Lighting can be used manually or set to Auto mode. It is also possible to bracket your pictures to get one with Active D-Lighting and one without.
Durable, high-precision shutter
Reliability is not a luxury--it's a necessity. That's why Nikon subjected numerous D90 shutter mechanisms to grueling 100,000-cycle shutter-release tests with the unit fully assembled in the camera.
The D90 is equipped with Nikon's i-TTL flash control, renowned for consistently accurate and balanced flash exposures. The built-in flash has an 18mm lens coverage and works as a wireless commander, controlling up to two independent groups of an unlimited number of remote Speedlights and providing incredible creative lighting control--on location or in the studio.
In-camera image editing
Creative freedom stems from exclusive in-camera image editing, featuring Fisheye effect, Straighten and Distortion Control as well as D-Lighting, Red-eye Reduction, Image Overlay, Monochrome and more.
You can enjoy both still images and movies shot with the D90 via HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) with the global-standard digital A/V signal transfer. HDMI Mini connector is employed.
The optional GP-1 GPS unit provides automatic real-time geo-tagging. See all Product description
Review from Wired.com: Nikon D90 Takes World Champion DSLR Title BeltRead the full Nikon D90 digital SLR review at Wired.com.
Nikon D90: Highly recommended by dpreview.com
The D90 viewfinder is amongst the best you'll find on any APS-C camera and it sits above the highest-resolution screen we've yet seen on a camera of this class. The buttons are well chosen and sensibly positioned, and the two-dial interface is a pleasure to use. (Buyers coming from other systems can even reverse the operation of the meter and dials to make everything that bit more familiar).

I've been using this camera for over 5 years and it's still as reliable as the first day I got it. This was my first DSLR and it was quite easy to learn photography with this camera. This is still a relevant camera even today and I feel is better than even the newer D3xxx or d5xxx in many aspects. It has an internal focus motor that lets you use the older lenses without focusing motor built in. Particularly the older 50mm 1.8 which at around $100 is still one of the best lenses available. It's also more ruggedly built than the consumer level Nikons. I would love to say that I always took good care of this but I didn't. I did not purposely abuse it but it's had it's fair share of mishaps and still performed as it should. I haven't used the newer D3XXX's/D5XXX's but from what I remember those only had 1 dial for aperture and shutter speed adjustments. The D90 has independent dials for those making shooting on manual much easier.
If you can find this at a good price and do not need 1080p video recording or higher megapixel photos (most of us don't), then it is still worth considering.
The beauty of this camera is that it is a tough and rugged camera that will take an excellent picture even in the more difficult environments on this planet, such as a thunderstorm high in the Andes, and nearly 1000 flash photos on one battery. It is a forgiving camera that will do such a fine job of compensating for any shortcomings of lighting, environment or photographer.
One issue I have is that the kit lens for this camera has been maligned by many both here and elsewhere. This lens is a fine lens and unless you need a long telephoto lens. It should never leave the camera. I have shot with other lenses on this camera and I have to say I have found the best results are with the 18-105mm lens sold with the D90. It is very likely that this lens was specially designed to be paired with this camera, as they work so well together.
If you don't need the bells and whistles of a newer camera, then consider my recommendation of the Nikon D90. I have owned mine since Sept 2008 and it has not even whimpered once, and I have not been gentle with it.
It's pretty easy to use, and it has been quite a life changer for me. Since I purchased this camera, I have landed covers & spreads to magazines such as GQ, FHM, Zoo, shot PETA campaigns with this camera & so on. Some other advanced photographers used to make fun of me for using this camera, but truthfully I didn't have much money when I bought it & I never intended on being a professional photographer to begin with.
So I HIGHLY recommend this camera to beginners as well as advanced photographers.
