NikonNikon D90 digital SLR camera review : The D90 as a possible successor to the D80 was a consistent rumor in the air. Yet two years would pass by before the Nikon D90 was actually here. The moment we held the Nikon D90 in our hands for the first time, we had to search for the differences in the design, though. Minor adjustments of the design with neater and clearer curves, confirm it is indeed the new Nikon DSLR. Naturally, the main changes are found inside the camera. Here, Nikon has altered many things to enable the D90 to connect to the line of new DSLR cameras such as the D300, D700 and D3.

Design of the Nikon D90 SLR camera
I still find it striking having to conclude that every Nikon body feels solid. Whether it's an amateur DSLR or a high-end professional camera, the selected material for the housing always has a high quality feel to it. This is also the case for the Nikon D90; a camera that looks very similar to its predecessor and feels fine from the very first instant. It offers a strong handgrip, excellent hand-fit and a practical weight that makes the D90 fit perfectly in your hand, or at least, in my hand. It may be clear; Nikon has its own ideas of what a DSLR-housing requires and keeps quality on a high level.

Creative photography with the Nikon D90
However, you don't just buy the Nikon D90 for its beautiful appearance only. Besides high expectations about the image quality, the average user is up for the occasional creative shooting as well. Preset scenes can be directly accessed through the large command dial. Every one of these scenes puts emphasis on a specific feature of the image. One step further, you might want to try the (S) shutter speed priority, or (A) Aperture priority, a semi-auto action at which it is fairly easy to influence motion and depth of field, among other things.

Nikon D90 review including a DIWA Lab test
The Nikon D90 is equipped with the latest technique, combined with innovations coming from Nikon's higher segment. Yet the D90 does not aim at the semipro market, instead it aims at the amateur market. The operation of the Nikon D90 is therefore kept as simple as possible, in order to ensure that the beginning, not so experienced photographer will be able to work with the menu of the camera fast and effortlessly. We were given the opportunity to use and test the camera in practice and in addition, the Nikon D90 was extensively technically tested in our DIWA Lab. Both tests resulted in this full Nikon D90 review.
