Excellent from start to finish

I have owned the D90 for several years, having owned earlier Nikon SLRs. The D90 performs flawlessly under all conditions. I have used it for portraits, landscapes, and sports, and I hang my best pictures throughout the apartment, printed as large as 19x26 inches. (I seldom take video despite the camera’s capability to do so.) A month ago, we travelled to the Galapagos; at the end of the voyage the ship’s staff showed pictures taken during the trip. My fellow travelers, numbering around 90, were amazed. I had clear pictures of perching and flying birds, close-ups of sally lightfoot crabs and of plant life growing from the lava, detailed pictures of iguanas, penguins and other sea life, and even a nice movie segment of a slow-walking tortoise. I confess that the camera is somewhat heavy since I always use a Nikkor 18-200 mm lens, but I appreciate the flexibility that this lens provides and the fact that I don’t need to carry 2 lenses. I recommend this camera for any serious amateur.

Nikon D90

I am a convert from the D50. This camera is superior in too many ways to list. If you have read a review on the D90 you can trust when it says it is a great Mid DSLR. Big screen, easy menus, clear pictures! Walmart had the lowest price of trustable on line sources. No shipping charge and camera arrived a day earlier than the projected date.

Very very good for serious enthusiasts.

I have been using D90 for 7 months now. The things that I like about the model are: 1. Good grip....comfortable in hands. 2. Easy access to on/off switch. 3. The LCD screen is too good. 4. Two different wheels for aperture and shutter speed are extremely useful. 5. The kit lens covers a very good range and performance of the lens is good. 6. Autofocus capability is good. 7. D-lighting is a useful feature. 8. Battery performance is good. What can be improved: 1. No dedicated button for switching between auto and manual ISO. 2. Personally I don't like the Movie feature much....movie quality is not as per its still picture quality. But may come useful in certain situations. 3. Kit lens has a tendency to give flare. 4. Colour reproduction is not perfect. I had to adjust the white balance to get proper results. White balance seems to have a cool(blue) tone....a little warmer(yellow)tone would be better. 5. Manual pre-set buttons could be a valuable addition.

Great camera, but...

I love my D90 because, having waited years for an affordable digital SLR, I experienced a huge improvement in picture quality, flexibility, and handling pleasure over my Olympus digital compact and old (year 2001) Minolta Dimage7 ZLR. Since I already owned a pro-quality 80-200mm f2.8 lens from my film days, the D90's ability to autofocus with non-CPU lenses was a very important feature. I was quite disappointed to learn, however, that the camera will not only not support autoexposure, but even manual metering, with AI-S lenses like my 50mm f1.4. Come on, Nikon, my F4s film camera provides full metering and exposure functionality with my old manual-focus lenses! Why won't the D90? A few other nits: The ability to shoot video with the camera sounds swell, but without autofocus the feature is considerably less valuable. The user manual could do a better job explaining focus point selection. There may be an upgrade to something like the D7000 in my future.

A great camera, but not perfect

Pros The same ISO capability of the D300. Intuitive layout that Nikon is famous for Fast - focus, frames per second, and card access First DSLR to have video, but . . . The D90 has the same sensor (or greatly similar depending on the source) as the D300 which means it shares the same great ISO capabilities. 1600 looks fine and you can definitely get usable small prints from even 3200. There are some reviewers on other sites claiming that the D90 has better noise reduction than the D300. Combine that with the the new Nikon VR lenses and you can shoot in low light at ridiculously slow shutter speeds. I've always hated using a flash and this camera is going to allow me to avoid using it in situations I never dreamed were possible. I took a shot in a dimly lit room at night and this camera picked up details I couldn't see with my own eyes! Cons Video has poor audio quality and no AF Overall this is a great camera and it is, minus the lack of weather proofing It does have its flaws, however. Thus the 4 star rating instead of 5.

Great Camera / Ok Video

This camera was a significant upgrade from my D50 and I'm still digging into some of the bells and whistles. The picture quality is outstanding. I am not a pro by any means, but I receive a lot of compliments from my shots - bright colors, clear, crisp images. The video is a little less than great - the actual video quality is fine, but the time limitations are a problem. My goal was a still camera - I've simply played with the video a little and I'm disappointed. I tried to video a friend in a band, but it shut down before the end of the song - in both HQ and standard formats. Granted we were outside and it was warm, but my iPhone would have easily captured the event - hence I'll probably use it for video more than this camera. All in all, a great camera. Not quite all the consumer gadgets of the current SLRs, but certainly all the tools I need and then some. Above all, it has the high quality of Nikon images which I have enjoyed for 30 years.

A year later and I have a photography website...

After shopping for a few weeks, and asking many photographers, I decided on a Nikon D90. I started at ground zero in May of 2010. Experimenting, trial and error, and thanks to the many features of the D90...even the "errors" turned out better than I ever imagined. It took about a week of using the camera in full-auto mode...and then I started branching out. Aperture priority on depth of field shots, then macro, then night shots. Rather than see it as a challenge, it was much more fun than anything else. I'd say 95% of what I've done is just self-taught, a few camera books (more for ideas than technique), and the rest is just shoot, shoot, shoot. All the gifts a gave for Christmas of 2010 were photos I shot and framed. It's very satisfying to see them in homes and businesses around town. It is still just a hobby, but it motivated me to launch my own website. It's my artistic outlet from my business life, and very fulfilling. Thanks Nikon!

Fantastic for wildlife!!!!

Since first using my D90 for wildlife photography I have been amazed at the quality and ease of use. I have been shooting pictures of birds in flight and am especially pleased with the results when shooting at the full 4.5 frames per second. It allows me capture those unexpected and unanticipated fractions of a second which would otherwise be unimaginable. For example, I found in reviewing photos of a Great Blue Herron in flight that I had recorded the fraction of a second when its wing tip touched the water as it flew across a pond. The D90 also has an excellent exposure sensitivity. I have used it to take shots of a Great Blue Herron as it stood poised to strike fish in the water with the sun reflecting off the water behind the bird, illuminiating the bird and the surrounding branched and leaves from below. This was accomplished while still allowing excellent detail of the bird. I am not a pro, but the D90 makes me feel like one!

Fun and useful camera

Just back from shooting on the beach in Jamaica with this camera. Over all it did well. I let the camera do 98% of the work by choosing the auto mode I felt would work and had 80% of the images come out such that very little post processing was needed. Not bad! I now know when I need to take over more when working on travel and resort work. A few times I was shooting and stopped shooting stills, hit the live view and OK for short video clips. What a great feature to have. I have stills that look like stills from a movie, a movie and then finished with a few stills. The mic did much better then I had thought it would as well. I will have my mono pod and tripod with the kit all the time now as this feature will be used often. The client loved them. Camera fits well in my hand and will most peoples hands. I have had the D300 in my hand and will add that or the D700 to the kit now that I have had some shooting time (over a year) with the D90, my first DSLR. Yes, I am one of the old guys who have film in my blood and training that was slow to switch over.

This camera is just plain fun

I have had my camera just over a year and have shot a little under 30,000 images and have looked at every one of them. It's my first DSLR and I love it. I have learned to shoot manually in almost any situation. I shoot a lot of sports [3 grandsons] and love to shoot nature [flowers and bugs especially]. I use an 18-200mm F3.5-5.6 and a 50mm F1.8 Nikon lens with various filters. The camera has taken some effort to learn what it is capable of but is richly rewarding. I gave it 4 stars only because it is not a full frame sensor. Shooting raw makes it simple to achieve the images I desire and to control the exposure values necessary to bring out detail in challenging situations. I have also bought my grandsons Nikon point and shoot cameras and am very satisfied with their quality also. The D90 is an excellent product that will richly reward the small effort required to learn how to mine its depths. Highly recommended.
