  • Summary: There are two ways to look at the Nikon D90. It is either a Nikon mid-range DSLR or a DSLR with movie recording capability. The good news is that, whichever way we look at it, this is an excellent DSLR. On the still photography side, the D90 is fast, responsive and produces high-quality images with little noise, great dynamic range and reliable exposure.
  • Pros: Lower image noise than most competing DSLRs, Fast except for live-view focusing, Better than average dynamic range, Reliable metering, Limited movie mode in a DSLR, Good ergonomics with comprehensive controls, Top-notch LCD display, Great Battery-Life, Solid build quality, In-camera RAW conversion
  • Cons: Noticeable NR softness starting at ISO 800, Poor white-balance under artificial light, ISO only selectable in 1/3 stops, Focus misses in low-light, Auto ISO deep in menu, remains active in M mode, Some control oddities, see

  • Pros: Solid image quality. Excellent color fidelity. Low noise, even at high ISOs. Shoots HD video.
  • Cons: Controls aren't very intuitive. Relatively low still-image resolution. Video features are limited.

11 August 2009
  • Summary: The D90 represents is a brilliant upgrade on the D80, worries over dynamic range need addressing but this is a new Nikon certainly capable of stunning results. In terms of pricing, looking at the body only price, it also represents stunning value for money too.
  • Pros: Build and handling, Superb image quality, Ease of use, Screen size, AF performance (non-Live View), White Balance control, EXPEED image processing and noise control, HD movies.
  • Cons: Live View AF, SD card port, VR kit lens barrel and pincushion distortion, Loss of shadow detail (dynamic range issues), SD cards held very tightly making safe removal awkward.

  • Conclusion: Nikon D90 digital SLR camera Nikon is treading the war path at least that is what it is starting to look like. One after the other DSLR is being introduced, all of them equipped with the many renewed features or innovative image solutions. It's a tough struggle to conquer a much desired market share in the DSLR market.

Nikon D90 Review

Digitaltrends
16 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The D90 as a camera is terrific. It focuses quickly, has zippy 4.5 fps burst mode, has more adjustments than you could possibly handle in a lifetime plus it takes fine photos with barely a hint of noise. As a camcorder, the D90 doesn’t make it. Yes it can take a fairly decent clip but they pale in comparison to a true HD video maker. And the lack of auto focus is a real inconvenience. I can easily recommend the D90 as a top-shelf 2008 D-SLR.
  • Pros: Wonderful quality stills; minimal noise at high ISOs: great burst mode; excellent kit lens
  • Cons: No AF in video mode

  • Summary: Building on the incredible critical acclaim of its D80 camera, Nikon is set to add a new model to its D-SLR line. After nearly two years in development, the Nikon D90 is finally ready for release, and it will be the first Nikon D-SLR model to support video-movie capture to go along with its digital picture taking.

The first SLR in the world to record video

Good Gear Guide.au
5 August 2009
  • Summary: As the first SLR to shoot video footage, Nikon's D90 is certainly an appealing product. The video mode itself still needs some work but it is fine for casual use and the still image capabilities are top notch as always making this another impressive, feature-rich mid-range D-SLR.
  • Pros: First SLR to shoot video, great noise control, feature-rich, brilliant screen
  • Cons: Live View autofocus is still slow, video footage suffers from wobbling and contrast issues

Nikon D90 review

Digital Arts
8 December 2008
  • Excerpt: The D90 replaces Nikon’s hugely popular D80, and has many of the improvements you’d expect. As well as another two million pixels, and the switch from CCD to CMOS, the D90 adds auto-sensor cleaning and a superb high-res three-inch LCD, Live View, ISOs up to a native ISO 3200, along with one-stop expansion and bursts up to 4.5fps.
  • Pros: Excellent stills with low noise; good build quality; excellent viewfinder and AF system; responsive with 4.5fps burst option.
  • Cons: Rolling shutter is prone to skew and wobble; video compression artifacts; mono sound with no additional input option.
