Nikon D90 DSLR Camera

Today, Chris Hardwick gets all foamy about the Nikon D90 DSLR camera, and gives it a good once-over to see if it's worth taking on vacation, or wherever else you might want to take pictures.

What You Need to Know

  • It's heavier than the D60, but still comfortable
  • The grip is conforming and the extra weight isn't too much of a big deal
  • It's also larger than the Canon Rebel XSI we reviewed, but the amount of features included makes it worth it
  • Each button has a dedicated function, and these are the things you use the most, like continuous mode, delete, live view, etc.
  • The scroll wheel located at the right of your thumb makes changing options really easy
  • Nikon hasn't changed anything about the directional pad and menus, which is fine with us, but the LCD is bigger and brighter
  • Overall, they made a camera with more features just as easy to use
  • Video recording is in 720p, but you're only allowed 5 minutes of footage, and it's mono audio
  • You have to manually focus while shooting
  • The image quality is really good for a camera, but it's still limited in your video options
  • Normal light pictures look incredible
  • Face detection in live view mode works together with the 11 point auto focus for fast and accurate snapshots
  • Low light looks great with little to no grain up to ISO 800
  • You can't beat the quality, but we would recommend this for those who want to take a step up from a D60 or XSI


  • $1,300
