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.
