Buyer beware!

JJ, Nikon
7 August 2012
  • Summary: Many of the D90s, mine included have developed the "blinking green light of death (BGLOD)" where the memory card light keeps flashing (even when the camera is off). Consequently, the battery becomes dead in a very short time. My D90 developed this problem after owning the camera for approximately 2 yrs, during which the camera was used very lightly.

Junk is right, Trash From Sunset Electronics

HotRod, Amazon
17 October 2011
  • Summary: Yes your right, great camera but I purchased the 2x high Definition Crap Filter, and wide angle filter. Like everyone else, I am looking for a nikon camera, but not from Sunset Electronics Crap Cameras. I am looking at best buys, i will spend a little more but at least i know what I'm getting.

Bad lens body connect

Brad, PhotoAlley.com
6 March 2010
  • Summary: There seems to have been a manufacturing flaw during some time frame. I returned my first package to [...], and ordered a second from Ritz. I am going to return the second to Nikon for repair. For each case the lens will not make a good contact with the body, thus disabling the ability to take pictures. The lens must be removed and replaced, or jiggled to make a solid contact. This doesn't work well with any sports/action scenario.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality
  • Cons: Bad lens to body connect

I love Nikon, but this camera is TERRIBLE!

FLPhotographer, Bestbuy
6 August 2009
  • Summary: The Nikon D90 has a known issue with the sensors melting down if used for any length of time or while shooting video.
  • Pros: Nothing, it's an expensive paperweight
  • Cons: The fact that I paid $1199 for the camera and $200 for the service plan and do NOT have a working camera.

Good camera, bad software support

Lon, Abes of Maine
30 June 2009
  • Summary: As many other reviews confirm, this is a good digital camera. After buying mine, however, I was disappointed to find that Nikon provides very poor support to users who do any kind of software post-processing with their pictures. Nikon again changed the file format for this camera versus older models. As a result, most of the software you have probably won't work.
  • Pros: Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Great Image Quality
  • Cons: Software support

Quality, Nikon customer service a no-go

Ole Sojur, PhotoAlley.com
27 April 2009
  • Summary: Ex-pro photographer and retired Army LTC. Use it as replacement for D70. Shoot nature, grandkids, and anything I like during travels. Video clips OK (don't have to carry my HD video camera). Picture quality not all that good (must use iPhoto or Photoshop to improve all shots); D70 actually better. Menus fairly easy to navigate. Picture quality on par with poor electronics and rotten Nikon customer service.
  • Pros: Acceptable video clips, Good ergonomics, Relatively easy menus
  • Cons: Bad electronics, Nikon customer service, Poor construction quality
