Nikon D90 Review

October 13, 2008 | Mark Goldstein | PhotographyBLOG | 7 Comments | |

Nikon D90The 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.

"Exposure Delay" means what it means.
This mode leaves a 1s. delay between mirror up & shutter release: the exposure is thus "delayed".

The D90 does not have any hidden Mirror Lock up feature, it just doesn't have mirror lock up.

If you are looking for MLU, you will need to buy a DX00 or DX model.

Al Bator:
The D90 DOES have a mirror lock up feature, it is under SETUP > "Lock mirror up for cleaning". I know because I'm holding the camera in my lap right now.

@John Staley;

Al is referring to the ability to lock the mirror up for taking a photo, not cleaning. He is correct in saying that the D90 does not have a Mirror lock up, but only under the context with which he said it. I know too because I have my D90 mounted to the tripod next to me. I'm glad he mentioned the exposure delay, because that is pretty much the feature I have been looking for but didn't understand until just now.

This is the best writen review of a camera that I have ever read. The writer made the camera and its functions easy to understand; without trying to sell me one. I have a D70 and am going to purchase the D90. Thank you for helping me understand the D90 better.
