Summary: The camera is a great item. 5 star for the camera. The kit said it had a aluminum case. They ran out of them and could not them. The seller offered to give me several memory cards instead. I took them since I was going to buy a different camera bag. 4 star. I did not receive the warranty cards with this camera and lenses. The seller told me that they keep them for service. Why would they do this. 1 star.
Excerpt: Nikon --- a world leader in camera quality and technology has created a great quality camera in the D90. It has outstanding picture quality. The auto focus is quick. It has an unlimited amount of options and settings. BUT, beware it is heavy to carry around at a photo shoot or taking on a day trip. It is not balanced well and after positioning it you have to be careful because it tips forward.
Excerpt: My brand new Nikon D90 running on original battery shows no battery meter . When I went to check it in the menu the Battery Info is disabled it says cannot view info in these settings . Later I checked on the info screen found out an AC Indicator instead . Please someone who has faced this before can help , or any suggestions . Thank You ! Regards Nevon Problems: NO Battery Indicator !
Summary: the battery used in this as told by a professional nikon spare parts retail shopkeeper are not original. I had to give the camera for a cleaning as the shutter kept closing every now and then.The tripod included in the kit is trash and doesnt hold good for even a week. The rest of the kit seams ok but not of the best of best quality. I given this as a gift to my sister and it was not worthy.
Summary: We have not been able to use them to much yet. From initial impressions, the camera and lens'are nice, but the other products were not as nice as the were described or as they appeared. The batteries are nice to have and the more we use it the better deal we may feel we received.
Excerpt: This camera does it all, and it doesn't cost $10,000.00 either. So you have to make the choice, are those other cameras worth another $9,000.00 to you? If not, buy this camera, and take very good photographs as well as movies.<br /><br />On the other hand, if you are a perfectionist, and can't stand the fact that there maybe a better camera on the market and you can't live with yourself till you've spent the most extreme amount of money possible.
Summary: I bought this at the same time as my Nikon D90. This actually arrived before the camera itself. I read the PDF version of the manual (from Nikon) before the camera arrived and I was pretty well prepared. I only needed a few days with the camera to get to know a lot of the functions that I will use. I also read the D90 guide from Ken Rockwell for some tips based on his actual usage.
Pros: Takes excellent photos .. when I am not trouble shooting the err message Feels solid in hands when shooting .. when I am not trouble shooting the err message Lets be honest .. looks sexy ... when I am not trouble shooting the err message
Cons: The Err message ... something has to be done! My d90 is with Nikon as we speak ... I hope this issue is remedied
