The Nikon D90 is a 12 megapixel Digital SLR with a CMOS image sensor. The sensor unit has a built in cleaning mechanism to minimise the effect of dust.
To improve the dynamic range of the D90 there is an Active D-Lighting feature that helps retain extra detail in both the lightest and darkest areas of your shots.
ISO settings are available up to ISO 6400. This gives you extra options when shooting in lowlight or capturing motion.
The D90 incorporates a Live View mode. This allows you to view scenes on the LCD screen and can help you compose your photographs. The LCD screen is 3 inches in size. Alternatively there is a 19.5mm pentaprism viewfinder.
A new innovation is a movie mode. This records movie footage in JPEG format.
The D90 is compatible with Nikon’s NIKKOR range of lenses.
There is an 11 point Auto Focus system. Focusing options include 3D-tracking AF, which lets you adjust the composition of an image after focusing on your subject.
