Nikon D90 - Review / Test Report - Verdict
DSLR Reviews - DSLRs


The Nikon D90 provides definitively "All you need to fuel your passion for photography" and a little bit more. The consumer DSLR camera from Nikon scores already after the first look through the exemplary viewfinder and gives an first impression of the D90 power. Just after the good old Nikon shutter release sound, the big 3 inch high resolution LCD displays a preview of the image taken by the 12.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor with built-in self-cleaning sensor unit and gives an idea of sharp images with a great resolution even in high sensitivity. The terrific dynamic range of the Nikon D90 in combination with Nikon's D-Lightning makes sure that the next shot succeeds.
In continuous-servo AF mode you can confidently concentrate on the scene and delegate the imaging part to the camera and its fast and reliable AF.
The HD video functionality of the Nikon D90 is surely only the beginning of upcoming video functions within DSLRs.
However, the AF in live mode isn't convincing and the x-sync is a tad slow. We would have wished that Nikon included weather sealing for tough outdoor conditions, but you can't have it all relative to the very competitive pricing.

Nevertheless, the Nikon D90 represents an exceptionally sound package all-in-all. Highly recommended!
