D-Movie a new shooting function
Worlds First D-SLR Movie D-Movie
A new idea for D-SLRs, the D90 offers a movie function, allowing you to shoot movies in three different motion JPEG formats: 320 x 216 pixels, 640 x 424 pixels and 1,280 x 720 pixels. Now you can capture lifes moving moments with added drama by using many of Nikons NIKKOR lenses, including the AF DX Fisheye 10.5mm f/2.8G ED and the Micro-NIKKOR lenses. The shallow depth of field can give your movies a more creative and emotional impact. An additional benefit is the D90 image sensor, which is much larger than a typical camcorder for higher image quality and exceptional high ISO performance during low-light shooting.
When youre not sure which camera settings are appropriate, simply rely on the Advanced Scene Modes. Just turn the mode dial to the appropriate icon: Portrait, Landscape, Close-up, Sports or Night Portrait. Unlike traditional scene modes, the D90 will automatically optimize the exposure, image processing, Active D-Lighting, and Picture Control to get the most out of your subject matter. Whats more, the D90 has exceptional low-noise performance and accurately adjusts the camera settings whether VR (Vibration Reduction) is activated or not, so you can expect beautiful, crisp images, even in many low-light scenes.

Improved auto focus performance
The D90 demonstrates amazing autofocus accuracy by utilizing color and brightness information from its 420-pixel RGB sensor. When shooting in Auto-area AF mode, the camera quickly focuses on the main subject by detecting foreground, background and subject position. When using 3D-tracking (11 points) mode, the camera uses your subjects color and brightness information to keep it in sharp focus as you change the composition.

Newly Developed Nikon DX-format CMOS image sensor
The D90 incorporates a newly developed DX-format CMOS image sensor with technology directly inherited from the D300, Nikons DX-format flagship. With its 12.3 effective megapixels and extraordinarily high signal-to-noise ratio, the D90 delivers low-noise images with detail and tonal gradation beyond your expectations, while Nikons Integrated Dust Reduction System works to free image-degrading dust particles from the sensors optical low-pass filter.

Nikons comprehensive EXPEED technology is engineered to make the most of the sensors rich, 12.3-megapixel data. The result color, detail and high-speed processing inspired by the groundbreaking D300. The D90s image-processing engine produces high-resolution pictures at remarkable speeds, better enabling high-speed continuous shooting. EXPEED also contributes to the outstanding performance of other powerful features, including Live View and the new Face Detection System.

The D90 gives you the freedom to shoot in a remarkably wide variety of lighting conditions, including dimly lit scenes, without worrying about image-degrading noise. ISO can be raised as high as Hi 1 (ISO 6400 equivalent) or lowered to Lo 1 (ISO 100 equivalent).
| || |
Nikons Picture Control System allows you to customize the look and mood of your images. Choose from six settings: Standard, Vivid, Neutral, Monochrome and the newly added Portrait and Landscape. Try using the Quick Adjust* function to easily make further adjustments according to your needs and preferences, then save the settings as Custom Picture Controls.

Scene Recognition System with the Face Detection System
First introduced on the D3 and D300 flagship cameras, Nikons breakthrough Scene Recognition System is also featured in the D90. This unique technology utilizes a 420-pixel RGB sensor to analyze immense amounts of scene and color information in order to understand what the camera is about to shoot. Milliseconds before the shutter is released, the camera optimizes the autofocus, auto exposure, i-TTL control and white balance. The D90 also uses Nikons new Face Detection System to render human faces with a newfound sharpness and accuracy.

Other features include:
Sophisticated Auto Exposure
Nikons 3D Color Matrix Metering II became one of the most highly acclaimed metering systems by delivering consistently well-balanced exposures even in lighting conditions that confuse other systems. Further extending its exposure capability, Nikons Scene Recognition System evaluates each scenes highlights, delivering even more light metering precision. Moreover, the D90 detects faces when using face priority AF, giving you ideal exposures of your human subjects.
Incredibly Accurate Auto White Balance
Auto white balance combines with Nikons Scene Recognition System to analyze each scenes light sources, cross-referencing this information with 5,000 actual picture data examples from over 20,000 images in its onboard white balance database. Even under mixed lighting or difficult light sources like mercury vapor lights, the D90 calculates an ideal white balance for remarkably faithful colors.
Utilizing information from the new Face Detection System, the D90 detects up to ten human faces during playback. Select one face and the D90 zooms in for faster focus confirmation.
Versatile, practical 11 point AF System
Thanks to Multi-CAM 1000 autofocus module, the D90s 11-point AF system has fast and precise autofocus coverage across the frame with the most sensitive AF sensor operating from the center. In addition, the D90 has versatile AF-area modes to handle most shooting situations. The center focus point can be switched from normal to wide according to the movement of the subject.
Large bright viewfinder features 96% frame coverage
The D90 has a precise eye-level pentaprism viewfinder with approx. 96% (centered) frame coverage and an easy-to-view 19.5mm eyepoint (at -1.0 m-1), so photographers can concentrate on capturing the moment. The built-in 16-frame grid display can be activated to align the horizontal and vertical lines in your image or assist in more pleasing compositions.
3-in., 920-dot, high-density colour LCD
The D90s 3-in., approx. 920k-dot LCD monitor provides unprecedented quality of image display. A wide 170-degree viewing angle makes it easy to confirm focus after shooting or during Live View.
Quick responses and shooting at 4.5 frames a second
The D90 captures crucial moments thanks to its impressive 0.15-second start-up time, 65-millisecond shutter-release time lag (CIPA standard) and ability to shoot at 4.5 frames a second for up to 100 shots*.
*Normal-Large image setting, using a Panasonic Pro HIGH SPEED 2 GB SD memory card.
Proven Endurance: Resiliant shutter units
Reliability is not a luxury its a necessity. Thats why Nikon subjected numerous D90 shutter mechanisms to grueling 100,000-cycle shutter-release tests with the unit fully assembled in the camera.
Built-in, pop-up flash commands
Advanced Wireless Lighting The D90 is equipped with Nikons i-TTL flash control, renowned for consistently accurate and balanced flash exposures. The built-in flash has an 18mm lens coverage and works as a wireless commander, controlling up to two independent groups of an unlimited number of remote Speedlights and providing incredible creative lighting control on location or in the studio.
Intelligent Power Management
Because of the D90s highly efficient energy-saving design, approx. 850 pictures can be taken on a single charge of the Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL3e. (CIPA standard, with AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, with 50% of pictures taken with flash)
