Looking for a great value digital SLR that also takes HD video? Then look no further than the Nikon D90, a 12.3-megapixel digital SLR camera. It has a high resolution 3-inch LCD screen which boasts a 920,000-pixel display and a 170-degree viewing angle. Perfect for photo and video and works great when combined with the Live View feature which offers new face detection technology as part of Nikon's Scene Recognition System (SRS). This also contributes to faster 11-area autofocus performance and controls the white balance.
The D90 itself is comfortable to hold and has a good grip. It is lighter than the Nikon D300 yet it still feels substantial and well-built. Snapping away with the D90 is a dream. There is virtually no shutter lag and it can shoot up to 4.5 frames-per-second. The photographs taken are crisp, clear and noise free. The ISO can increase to 3200 on the D90.
The main appeal of the D90 will of course be the introduction of a video setting onto an SLR. The wait is over! The D90 records video as a Motion JPEG in AVI format at 24 frames per second.
