Released in August of 2008, the Nikon D90 DSLR raises the bar with a plethora of digital photography features, including:

  • The first DSLR to record video
  • Live View mode
  • Face priority auto-focus for razor sharp portraits and candids
  • Large 3″ LCD screen with 170 degree viewing angle
  • Active-D Lighting Control for on the fly tone correction in high contrast situations
  • ISO range from 100-6400, auto selectable or manual
  • Sensor Cleaning Technology
  • GPS port for geotaging images as they are shot

I was given the Nikon D90 and a Nikkor 18-105mm DX lens with image stabilization to take for a test spin and review around the lovely island of Whidbey in Washington State.  As is typical of Washington in the winter, the day was overcast with a bit of fog lingering throughout which meant some really nice, even light.  This is also the first Nikon I’ve used in quite a long time.  For full disclosure, I’ve used Canon DSLRs for over 6 years but I don’t give in to the blind brand loyalty some profess.  I’ve chosen Canon simply because those are the lenses I have.  So I was excited for the chance to try something new and review the Nikon D90.
