Description

The Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera boasts an extensive array of sophisticated functions to help you achieve superior results. It as a 12.3 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and Nikon's EXPEED image processing system which will offer you absolutley outstanding image quality across a wide ISO light sensitivity range. High ISO (200-3200) light sensitivity, extendable up to ISO 6400 (equivalent) and down to ISO 100 (equivalent), enables faster shutter speeds, significantly reducing the risk of blurred images when you shoot fast-moving subjects or take pictures in low light.

The Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera's Live View mode will let you compose/shoot via the high-res 3" monitor. Three AF modes are supported, Face priority AF for portraits (detects up to 5 faces in a frame), Wide area AF for handheld shots and Normal area AF for shots with a tripod.The Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera also as a advanced Scene Recognition System and AF performance which will help capture your images with pin point accuracy. Advanced autofocus performance with versatile Multi-CAM100 11-point AF system offers fast and precise autofocus coverage across the frame. AF-area modes handle most shooting situations and include 3D-tracking AF, which lets you adjust the composition of an image after focusing on your subject.

Moving images can be creating in Motion JPEG format using the Nikon D90's innovative D-Movie function. The Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera's large image sensor gives fantastic movie image quality and incorporates Live View mode with Autofocus making it easy to compose images using the 3-inch, 920k-dot, high-resolution LCD monitor. The monitor also has a 170-degree viewing angle.

Active D-Lighting in the Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera retains details in highlights and shadows for stunning images with natural contrast. It can be activated manually or automatically and features four levels, including Extra High and the picture controls enables the images to be customized, to personalise the look and mood of images. Choose from six settings: Standard, Vivid, Neutral, Monochrome, Portrait and Landscape. Scene Recognition System with Face Detection System combines data from Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera metering and AF sensors to deliver precise exposures and sharply-defined images, and recognizes human faces for portraits or group shots with natural-looking skin tones.

The bright pentaprism viewfinder on the Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera offers approximately 96% frame coverage and 19.5mm eye point for precise composition and the quick response with an approximate 0.15-second start-up time, 65-millisecond shutter release time lag and 4.5 frames per second, means no shot will be missed, however fleeting. The extensive Retouch Menu on the Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera is a useful tool, as the original image stays intact and the camera quickly and simply creates a duplicate image ready for editing and enhancing within the camera software.

Extensive playback functions including Pictmotion built-in slideshow, a 72-frame thumbnail display, calendar playback and a histogram display that offers histograms of magnified sections of an image.
