Nikon D90 Malaysia: A Step Ahead in Photography

One of the most prominent things to take into consideration when regarding the Nikon D90 and its predecessor, the D80, is the new CMOS sensor. This particular sensor is able to produce D300-par quality output up to ISO 6400. It is a small trickle down compared to higher models but it works its magic in comparison of the D80. Along with the sensor, you are open to gander at the highly acclaimed 3.0-inch VGA screen whilst taking and browsing through pictures. In essence, higher Nikon D models lent several of their prominent features to the D90 and you know what they say about big things coming in small, compacted spaces.

Getting Your Pictures Right and Crisp with the D90

The Nikon D90 camera sports 12.9 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor with 12.3 million effective pixels at the disposal of the handler. It is also equipped with Live View along with contrast-detect AF and face detection—so getting a group picture or a portrait should be a walk in the park. You are also able to capture videos up to 1280x720 24 FPS with mono sound, making the D90 an all-round camera to have. With other features like expeed image processing engine, 3D tracking AF up to 11 points, 96% improved viewfinder, an optional compact GPS unit that could fit on hot shoe, vignetting control in-camera, and an extensive in-camera retouching including raw development and straightening. The D90 is a wholesome camera on its own and a great improvement from its direct predecessor, the Nikon D80.

Should You Own It?

This question can be answered in 2 ways; one being if you want an improvement from previous Nikon D models and the other if you want a wholesome camera that embodies all the nice and prominent features of higher-grade models in a compact manner. Adding to the fact that the Nikon D90 has Active D-Lighting and Automatic Chromatic Aberration Correction, you can settle with this camera and be happy with all the pictures and videos you are able to take. Taking into affect that this camera also house other features like faster continuous shooting and a larger buffering period with a wider ISO range, upgraded AF system that consults 3D tracking and face detection, the Nikon D90 is a camera to have if you are looking for one to exploit every little photography opportunity and moment.
