DCRP Review: Nikon D90
4.5 Star Review  DCResource - Sep 17, 2008

The last Nikon digital SLR I reviewed was the D60, and to be honest, it didn't do much for me. My impression of the D90 is the total opposite: it blew me away. In terms of photo quality, manual controls, performance, customizability, and yes, its movie mode, the D90 is a home run. There are a few annoyances, such as slow focusing in live view mode and horrible bundled RAW editing software, but the positives far outweigh the negatives. The D90 is a digital SLR that I can highly recommend, without hesitation.

Nikon D90 Review
5 Star Review  Imaging Resource - Oct 20, 2008

Nikon rocked the DSLR world when they introduced their D90 SLR early this Fall, the first SLR that can record movies. Its video capabilities won't replace dedicated camcorders, but will provide welcome relief for photographers tired of carrying along a pocket digicam just for taking "video snapshots". Its movie recording is only one of the many exceptional features the Nikon D90 has to offer. It also incorporates the chromatic aberration correction capability first introduced in the D3 and D300 high-end models. This feature works regardless of the brand lens you're using, so the D90 promises to improve the quality of most any lens you use it with. Speaking of lenses, the Nikon D90 ships with one of the nicest kit lenses we've seen yet, a 18-105mm VR (vibration reduction, Nikon's name for Image Stabilization) model that delivers very good sharpness, and (thanks to the aforementioned CA-reduction capability of the camera) very little chromatic aberration. The Nikon D90 brings much, much more to the table, though, far more than we can go into here. If you're in the market for a high-end prosumer digital SLR camera, the Nikon D90 deserves to be near the top of your list for consideration. Read our Nikon D90 review for all the details!

Nikon D90 Digital Camera Review
5 Star Review  Digitalcamerainfo.com - Apr 21, 2008

News coverage of the Nikon D90 introduction focused on the fact that this is the first SLR to shoot video, a feature long available on even low-cost point-and-shoots. After working with the camera for several weeks, though, we're less excited about the video than the D90's strong across-the-board performance shooting stills. This 12.3-megapixel camera is easy to handle, scored very well in nearly all of our lab tests, and offers effective training-wheel features for newbies without losing any of the hands-on fine-tuning seasoned Nikon shooters expect. It sells for $999.95 (body only) or $1299.95 bundled with a new 18-105mm VR lens.

5 Star Review  letsgodigital.org - Nov 23, 2008

The image quality is steady as a rock. Excellent color reproduction and superb dynamic range combined with Nikon's 3D Matrix metering ensure an outstanding DSLR. Nikon shows to be able to swiftly integrate innovations coming from the professional DSLR in the amateur market, making this segment also stand out from the crowd. The D90 is definitely worth its money and well worth stepping over to from the D80.

Camera Labs – Nikon D90 review
4.5 Star Review  cameralabs.com - Oct 1, 2008

The Nikon D90 is a feature-packed DSLR which inherits key features from the semi-pro D300, while adding unique capabilities of its own. As the long-awaited successor to the popular D80, it brings that model bang up-to-date with the latest features and gadgetry. So you get the same 12.3 Megapixel resolution, 3in VGA screen and HDMI port of the D300 in a body that shares the excellent build, viewfinder and AF system of the D80. On top of that the D90 features Live View and becomes the first DSLR in the World to boast video recording capabilities, including a 720p HD mode with mono sound. It’s certainly a compelling proposition and as a stills camera, the D90 handles beautifully. The video capability is less consistent though, and there’s also some very tough rivals at the same price point. In our full review at Cameralabs we’ve compared the D90 against its key rivals and fully detailed the movie mode warts and all. You’ll also find sample images and direct comparisons at all sensitivities, along with a demonstration of its highlights – including movie clips – in our video tour.

Nikon D90 Review
4.5 Star Review  photographyblog.com - Oct 13, 2008

The Nikon D90 is the first ever digital SLR camera that can shoot video, in addition to its 12.3 megapixel still images. The D90 records 720p high definition video at 24fps with mono-sound for up to 5 minutes, which can be played back in style on the new 3-inch LCD screen with 170? viewing angle and 920,000 dots. Other advanced features offered by the Nikon D90 include Live View shooting with Face Priority mode, 850 picture battery life, Active D-Lighting, Picture Controls, and an ISO sensitivity range of 100-6400. The price of all this cutting-edge technology is a very reasonable £699.99 / $999.95 body only, or £849.99 / $1,299.95 with the new 18-105mm F/3.5-5.6G ED VR kit lens. We've spent the last couple of weeks putting the new Nikon D90 to the test.

Love this camera!!!
5 Star Review   By JennyP on Adorama - Aug 27, 2013

A nice step up!
4 Star Review   By The camera guy on Adorama - Aug 13, 2013   

This camera was a step up from the D60 and I can see the difference between the two. The D90 is a great camera for what I want to use it for. I do photo shoots for family and friends and with the D90 I can see the difference in the quality of the prints. I am still learning the features of the camera. Starting to shoot in RAW and notice the differences.

Not what I needed
4 Star Review   By wombler on Adorama - Jul 30, 2013   

My impression during the brief period I had the camera was that it takes excellent pictures. I'm sure I barely scratched the surface of its abilities. I used to use 35-mm film cameras (Pentax, Yashica), but for a number of years have carried around the latest incarnation of Casio's pocket-sized wonders, and I soon realized that I simply would not take many pictures with the (to me) oversized Nikon. Adorama's return policy was straightforward and just as advertised.

Very good camera
5 Star Review   By Kenny on Adorama - Jul 17, 2013   

Coming from D40 so this is an upgrade for me. Color is accurate and gives very good image quality. It is fast and very easy to use. The info button is a real plus as it shows you the current camera settings and you can make quick adjustments there too. I don't use the video mode as I prefer to use a camcorder for that purpose. Overall, a very good camera.

Nikon D90 | includes 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S VR DX lens
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Oct 9, 2009

The Nikon D90 is a digital SLR camera made to replace the D 80. But the D 90 is more than just an upgrade. It has been given some of the new features found in the top of the line Nikon D series, one of them the highly acclaimed 3 in. VGA viewscreen. Equipped with Life View with contrast-detect AF that includes Face Detection Technology, the big surprise to some reviewers is that it has the first DSLR Movie mode with HDTV quality. The D90 was built for two markets: as a transition from a compact and as a camera for serious amateurs wanting expert photographic control at a lower cost and less weight than the top of the line, professional cameras. Features 12.3 megapixel DX-Format CMOS sensor Nikons exclusive EXPEED digital imaging processing 3 in. super density VGA color monitor 4.5 frames-per-second continuous shooting In camera pictire editing D-Movie Mode—Cinematic 24fps HD with ... PROS: (1) uses standard SD cards (2) HDMI output (3) large display of high quality (920,000-dot color LCD monitor with 170-degree wide-angle viewing) (4) very fast (0.15ms start-up, 65ms shooting lag, up to 4.5 frames per second) (5) Built-in image sensor cleaning ... CONS: (1) no continuous autofocus for video recording (2) Restricted to record only 5 minutes of HD video and 20 minutes of regular video (3) video recording suffers from"jelly-visio" (4) Bundled Software very limited compared to what one gets with a Canon

D90 SCORES HIT FOR ANNIVERSARY
5 Star Review   By Kathleen on Adorama - Jun 25, 2013   

Now both of us have a D90 to use in our photo-art greeting card biz. It's fast and so easy to use, a real improvement over my former D40 we sold at Adorama. I haven't found anything not so great yet.

Nikon D90
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Image quality, Movie capability

Weakness: Unable to focus while in movie mode.

I just received my D90, purchased through Costco. I opted for the 18-55mm, and the 70-300mm lenses (included). I am over the moon with the quality of the images. As an older "Film" type, there is a bit of a learning curve. I am going to pick up a copy of Nikon D90 For Dummies. The included Nikon D90 manual is (imho) written for people who have advanced technical skills. There is a fairly informative dvd (included). After about an hour, my eyes glazed over, and I was back to page 1. I debated between the D90, and D500. After all was said and done, there is no comparison between these two cameras.

Went to Disney and was able to take a lot of great pictures. I learned as I went and camera was real forgiving

D90 -- Just Buy It!
5 Star Review   By member mourerj - May 29, 2009   

Strengths: D300 Image Quality, High ISO use; gets MANY features once exclusive to >$2,000 models (see Comments); 920k LCD, drive speed (5fps on mine), JPG processing, , 11-point

Weakness: Software for advanced editing is very good but costly (Capture NX2, appx. $150), as is the PC control software (Camera Control 2, $75 or so?). Canon gives similar software for free. Awful bundled apps

For the sake of disclosure, I've owned Canons (30D & 40D, used 5D Mk. II for several jobs) and currently shoot with a Nikon D90 and D700. As the first "2nd-generation" Nikon DSLR to retail for less than $2,000 (See critic Ken Rockwell's fine explanation at www.kenrockwell.com/ni...), you get the best "bang for the buck" with the D90. The power of its Picture Control System (PCS) affords enormous flexibility, esp. when paired with the Fcn button (set for "1st item in My Menu"), as you can switch from "outdoor" shooting to your portraiture parameters **without taking your eye from the finder** PCS includes a set of contrast, sharpness, hue & other settings that can be set & saved to call up individually (9 or 12 can be saved to shortcuts) My opinion is that PCS is more powerful than Canon's Picture Styles. The D90 sports the best APS-C viewfinder you can buy, period. The AF module is superb for this class, using an 11-point, 1-cross (x,y) array that can be set to the usual "single, dynamic, auto" plus a novel 11-pt. 3D subject tracking mode that uses the excellent Scene Recognition System (SRS), which participates in two main functions: metering & 3D predictive tracking. It does this with a 420-segment sensor in tandem with many complex algorithms; Nikon likes to tout the one that compares the real-time frame to> 35,000 stored images (& contour maps) to help meter the shot and/or track a moving subject for 3D predictive focusing, a really impressive feature that calculates the position a moving subject will be in by the next frame and pre-programs the AF point before it's needed; the result is up to 4.5 fps shooting with a subject that remains in focus (even if moving toward the camera and leaving its field simultaneously!). With 11-pts it works well on a tennis player, but a bird in flight hasn't got a prayer; that would require Nikon's top-of-the-line 51-point (15-cross) 1,005-segment 3D tracking (on the D300/D700/D3/D3x). Low light/high ISO work at times superior to the D300 (and even the $4,500 D3 in some cases, according to noted critic Ken Rockwell). ISO 3200 usually looks great; the terrific Auto ISO system adjusts shutter speed and ISO based on your telling the D90 what your max ISO & slowest shutter speed should be (and use it in Programmed Auto "P", or S, A modes). Build quality & ergonomics are great: unbeatable for this class. Speed. I measured 5.06 fps under tough conditions: RAW output & ISO 800 Video is nice to use on occasion, but this is a stills camera first and foremost. Fantastic selection of post retouching/tone changes. In fact, the color control setting is superior to Photoshop CS4's (on the flip side, CS4's Spherize is much better than the D90's Fisheye effect, but CS4 costs nearly as much as the D90!). I use "Straighten" often, a great way to correct off horizon shots & lets you focus on getting the shot knowing it's easily corrected in camera (by +/- 5 deg.). D-lighting is very useful for bumping up dynamic range (this even helps for shots in which the amazing Active D-Lighting had been set -- FYI: Active D Lighting is very different and far more powerful than just "D-Lighting," a post function). Can convert NEF (RAW) to JPG in camera and apply various exposures, PCS sets & more. Same amazing 3.0" LCD as in the $8,000 D3x. Imperceptibly fast sensor cleaning and anti-vignetting feature. There are more, just can't think of them now!!
