The first D-SLR to offer HD video capability, the Nikon D90 joins the D80, and in doing so, has elevated the performance potential of the “hard-core photo-enthusiast” model in Nikon’s D-SLR lineup. (The Canon EOS 5D Mark II with HD video capability was introduced a few weeks later.) The D90 has a lot to offer the outdoor photographer in addition to the ability to record movies with sound and capture excellent 12.3-megapixel still images. Combining high performance and ease of use, the D90 is a fine camera for everything from landscapes to wildlife action.

    The D90 is a well designed camera with an interface that is very intuitive. The sensor and processing system produce superb image quality and the kit 18-105 VR lens is a very good value. Check it out at a local store. I think you will be impressed also.

    I am amazed by the intuitive placement of valuable controls in the D90. I handed down the D40X with glee when i got my hands on my new system. Compairing it to the Big Brothers D3 D300 and D700 the D90 really isn’t that much of a “little Brother” other than by mere size. All of the functions I need for the work I do and a few more just to make it interesting and fun to play with.

    I bought this camera to come into the DSLR age, as a stepping stone to a D300. After seeing what it can do, and how logically and easily it does it, I’m staying with the D90.
