Pros: just about everything
Cons: shutter speed could be better
I recently upgraded from the D70 and I've never regretted it. The video mode is incredible, the view screen is so much better.......and the quality of the pictures? WOW!!! I make a lot of posters for my business. This camera is excellent for creating quality shots for extremely large prints. Even after 3 years of owning a Nikon, I've still got a lot to learn, but the quality of my photos have really set me apart from my competition in sales. Even if you've never owned an SLR, this is a great camera to buy because it's so easy to learn the basics. I was taking great photos from the very first day. I've researched a lot before forking out another thousand....there's just nothing out there that can touch this camera in just about any price range.
Pros: Everything is excellent about this camera
Cons: 4.5 frames per second
Ever since the D90 came out this september, I have been debating with myself whether I should upgrade to the D90. I have read the specs on this camera and compared dozens of reviews from different websites and blogs. I was originally going to upgrade to the D300 but the main thing that held me back was the price. The D300 and the D90 are both 12 MP but the D90 was definitely cheaper. So I now have a D90 and I love everything about it. Even the video mode is really good. Low light video on the D90 is way better than my Canon FS100 video camera.
Pros: Easy to use, does everything with style
I have photographed with many cameras and formats. This camera with the 18-105VR kit lens is nothing short of fantastic! Within the 18-105 VR range the lens is very good. It also has the lens advantage of only going to the 105mm which may the the practical point to switch to a different lens. I actually am hoping when the Nikon D400 comes out it has this same lens! For what you pay this camera and lens it delivers! Not one feature will hold you back. Couple it with a 70-300 VR and you can shot great detail, tonality, with speed and precision. I own some expensive equipment but this one makes me think that some cameras are really special! I recommend it to all categories of photographers!
Pros: The best DX camera.
Cons: Not a standard HMDI interface, but the cost of the cable is insignificant.
The Nikon D90 is Nikon’s successor to the fabulous D80, but is more similar to the D300: and adds some unique capabilities of its own.
The D90 has the excellent body, viewfinder, and AF system of the earlier D80; but has a better sensor with live view capabilities, larger and more detailed 3in VGA screen, quicker 4.5fps continuous shooting, HDMI output, a GPS option and movie recording – a first for DSLRs!!
As a stills camera, the D90 handles beautifully, just like the D80.
The D90 feels solid and confident in your hands, and all of the controls are comfortably positioned. The AF speed, accuracy and handling are as good as any DSLR.
Pros: Great Quality Camera at a Low Price (comparatively)
Cons: fairly low # of shots / second
My last camera was a sony cybershot i bought about 2 years ago. I liked the qualits of day shots but being a college student in chicago i hated the poor quality nighttime cityscape shots i got out of it. I decided to get a new camera better than the point and shoot i had and not as bulky as a SLR. After lookin at the cannon G9 & 10 i decided on the nikon. it had a much higher iso, lower price, and when the camera autoformats the photos i don't believe the extra 2MP on the G10 is worth the extra sixty dollars.
This is definitely an unprofessional opinion but i can say it is a great camera to learn with. the settings are so easy to change i can just sit and toy with the setings all the time, and it goes back to its original settings as soon as you change photo modes.
Pros: Take Good Pictures
As this is my first DSLR, I am shooting in Auto mode for the time being while at the same time I am learning each of the features slowly. This camera is easy to use and it takes great pictures.
Pros: Value & performance
Cons: shutter speed
I have a Nikon D50 previously so I must say this D90 is much much better in terms of performance and stuff. Since I acquired this baby, I must say I really fell in love with it. The only thing is the shutter speed of 4.5fps not appelling to me but nevertheless it doesn't hamper the overall performance. What I like most of it is the handling of digital noise even you pump up to 1600 ISO in very low lighting conditions. The In-camera picture enhancement also gives you better options in dealing with your pictures promptly. The price is not an argument since this is the first DSLR with video capabilities. Overall, excellent DSLR for semi-amateur photographer, value and performance wise.
Cons: cannot do more than 3 multiple exposures
Being a Nikon fan I had to see what the rave of this camera was. I sold my old Nikon and purchased the D90 w/18-105 VR lens. The lens you get it with is great. I work have worked with all different kinds of cameras. I must say this so far this is my favorite. If you think the D80 is a good camera you need to definitly check out this camera.
Pros: handling, image quality, high iso performance, live view
Cons: not compatible with AI or AI-s lenses, no quiet mode, shutter time limit of 30s without remote
Before I dissect the features of this camera, let's be completely clear about one thing: I love this camera! I upgraded after my D70 got stolen. The D90 has an outstanding set of features that allow for extremely versatile styles of shooting that allow you to easily adapt to any change of settings you may encounter. The primary reason for this is that this is an extremely intelligent camera, but maybe equally important is the ease of access to important control settings that the D90 grants to its user. With a programmable function button conveniently placed where my middle finger rests when holding the camera with my index finger on the shutter, I can easily access what Nikon calls "My Menu." Here I can place all the features that I am likely to want to change. As I have learned more about the camera, I have customized it to fit my typical shooting challenges.
The camera has very reliable metering, and leaving the camera on Program mode, with Auto-ISO enabled up through 3200, you can take very usable pictures in an extremely wide range of settings on the fly (especially with a fast f/1.8 35mm or 50mm lens), leaving you free to think about your compositions. This is especially enhanced with the 11-point auto-focus system with the 3D-tracking. I can actually get pictures of my dog in focus while she's running circles around me, even if I can't keep the camera up to my eye. The camera follows her through the frame and keeps her in focus. Wow!
No matter how smart the camera is, there are going to be times when a creative photographer is going to want to take over control. That is extremely easy with the D90. Spin the settings dial to either Shutter or Aperture priority, or Manual, then one touch of the function button, and I'm ready to set the ISO to my preference, and I'm back in the pilot seat. Two spin dials placed ergonomically for your thumb and index finger let you control aperture and shutter speed instantly, while changing ISO remains only one button touch away.
The LCD is amazingly sharp and bright. While I never use the video mode (I read that it's not that easy to use due to it not auto-focusing during shooting, but that's not why I bought the camera), I frequently find the live view mode very useful. Over an almost 180 degree viewing angle, it never blacks out, letting you compose shots even with the camera held way over your head above a crowd or down on the ground. Another benefit is that in live view mode, you can zoom in to 10x, letting you get precise focus even with narrow depths of field.
So, now the cons. If you want to save money and buy an older AI or AI-s lens for macro photography, or what have you., you won't be able to meter with the D90. It takes a step up to the D300 for those lenses to meter. Also, it would be nice if they would have included a mode to dampen the mirror movement to reduce the noise for quiet situations, but the D90 is not any noisier than what you would expect a normal camera to be. And lastly, the shutter time limit is a little annoying if you're trying to shoot night shots, forcing you to self-meter anything with an exposure longer than 30s, and then only if you have the remote to control the bulb function of the camera. A very minor drawback for most photographers.
To sum it up, this camera has tons of great features, many I haven't mentioned for sake of space. It is extremely easy to use and to customize and it takes great pictures, even in challenging situations. I love it.
If you want an SLR spend the extra bucks and get this. My D60 I made the mistake of buying first doesn't even compare.
