My first DSLR ever! Yes, despite being of " a certain age " I decided a little while ago to take the plunge and join the 21st century . Having done extensive research via the internet , library and local camera shops ( particularly Jessops ) I finally narrowed quite a shortlist down to just the Nikon and the Canon 40D . The Canon is a superb and tough camera - to be honest I could barely seperate them . In addition I spoke at length with my daughter ( a dedicated Canon user ). Eventually I chose the Nikon for its bigger sensor and great LCD screen . This particular one came with an additional Sigma 70-300 zoom lens ( with Hoya filter ) and a great Samsonite case . The first owner had clearly looked after all of this kit really carefully (thank you Bernard !) . I am really pleased with the package , it is not as daunting as I had initially feared . It is very user friendly and logically laid out . Yes there is a lot to learn but there are so many help groups on the web , a ( relatively ) new monthly Nikon magazine called N Photo and the likes of the Dummies Guide available . Overall I am confident that I shall master this wonderful box of tricks . I have no hesitation whatever in recommending this camera unconditionally . Roll on 2014 when we intend going to NZ ! Gives me a while to practice and to get a few goodies together . Happy snapping !

Review for: Nikon D90 12.3 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black (Body only)
The Nikon D90 is one of those products that instantly feels right. It's aimed at an advanced amateur/semi pro market. . Its automatic and scene modes make it instantly useable with superb results but it also has plenty of depth of control to truely explore the creative side of this fine camera.

The 18-105mm Bundled lens has an extremely giving you a slightly wider than average to a very useable short telephoto range. I've found it to be very reponsive in most conditions and, with the D90's focus assist lamp (far better than the horrible flash strobing Focus assist that a lot of cameras are opting for) very little escaped the autofocus.

As the D90 has a built in AF motor the range of lenses available is not restricted as is the case with some of the lower end Nikons like the D40 which have to resort manual focus in the absense of lens based autofocussing motors.

Oh, I nearly forgot.... it also has the ability to to record HD quality movies; probably not a facilities that the purists will be too interested in, but quite handy all the same! Although the video is possibly seen as a bit gimicky, it's addition doesn't mean that nikon has compromised the true ability of the DSL functions . If you choose to ignore the video, you are still left with a extremely high quality still camera capable of taking truely stunning images up there with the best.

All in all I find the D90 to be a joy to use with many hidden depths - Highly recommended

The D90 is an excellent camera, but not for beginners.

In film days I was a pro and the D90 menus do indeedtake some getting used to, after stepping up from Prosumer to DSLR digital.

I find D90 images at default settings are soft and recommend that in-camera sharpening is set at +2, which then minimises what post processing sharpening needs to be done later.

My test impressions of the MK2 VR2 18mm-200m lens over the first few days is that whilst it is good, it is a compromise lens that is very good for most occasion.
Sharpness is a bit soft at 18mm and improves from 24mm.
Similarly, I would not recommend working at open aperture unless you have too, where the lens is also quite soft, albeit easily rectified in photoshop or similar.
Every lens has an optimum aperture,and I have found that f8-f11 produces excellent results overall. Please remember that Vibration Reduction (VR) is exactly what it says, it is a REDUCTION system and definitely does not eliminate camera shake if you are over optimistic with low shutter speeds when hand held at longer focal lengths.

Noise is well controlled and can even produce very good images (albeit not noise free) up to 1800 ISO/asa..beyond that is as you might expect.

The Nikon D90 & why it's a real photographers camera...

Created: 09/08/10
Review for: Nikon D90 12.3 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black (Body only)
I've written several reviews and guides for eBay before and I thought it might be a good idea to update some of them.
At the same time, I've decided to review my current camera.

I used an Olympus E-510 (Evolt in the US) before my D90 and upgraded because I found some of the features of the Olympus limiting.
Like many, I had some difficulties in choosing which camera to upgrade to. Do you stay with the same system? If not, which way do you go? In the end, after looking at several cameras , including the Canon EOS 40D and the Olympus E30 I wandered into a shop and picked up a D90. 5 minutes later I walked out with it.

The first thing you notice is the viewfinder, especially if you're coming from a lower level DSLR or bridge camera. It's a proper pentaprism, rather than the cheaper pentamirror. That means it's bigger, brighter, easier to see through and an absolute joy to use.
The next thing is, for me at least, the ergonomics. This is a personal thing but I found the camera a joy to use and everything I use when shooting comes naturally to hand without having to remember where it is (not something I can say about the EOS 40D for example).
And then you start to notice other little things. It's got an autofocus motor built in so, unlike the cheaper Nikon models, it can operate the AF screws in non AF-S lenses. Doesn't sound like a big deal but after a year with this camera, it's turned out to be a real advantage. It's also surprising how useful the LCD on the top plate can be for checking your settings and adjusting the exposure controls.

Of course, the D90 has it's limitations. When it was released it was the first DSLR to have a video recording feature. It's a rather sparse video system really, no aperture control, no autofocus etc. But don't let that put you off (unless you really want to shoot video). At the time of writing (August 2010) the D90 is rumoured to be replaced in the near future and this, if anything, will turn it into even more of a bargain than it already is.

I could list great features about this camera forever... The 3D tracking, 11 point AF system is fast, accurate and hugely customisable. The high impact plastic and metal body is solid and excellently built. The controls are intuitive and easy to use. The image quality is genuinely excellent. The 3 inch, 920K pixel screen delightful to use. The automatic chromatic aberration removal (if you shoot JPEG) is very impressive. The inbuilt wireless flash commander modes are something that Canon has only just begun to catch up on, 2 years later, and on a much more expensive camera.

The camera is so flexible and there are so many ways you can adjust it, it's impossible not to love it (you can even reverse the action of the dials and indicators if you like). When it came out, it was universally reviewed as the best camera in it's class and it still thoroughly deserves that plaudit. This is a camera for photographers. It's not showy or huge but it offers a massive leap in terms of quality and technology over entry level cameras.

The best thing I can say about it is this... it made me want to use it. More and more.

Nikon D90 camera

Review for: Nikon D90 12.3 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black (Body only)
First a bit about me. I ve been a keen amateur photographer for the last 45yrs so know a bit about cameras and photography.(website here www.philcsimages.co.uk )

I recently bought a second D90 body as I found the first one better for me than the Nikon D2x pro body (£3,500 when new)

The camera itself is well made and solid, mid size and weight, and feels good in the hand with all the controls you use frequently in perfect positions. It has two control wheels, one next to your thumb and one next to your index finger so that aperure and shutter speeds can be quickly changed independently of each other. This is much better than a camera with only one wheel.

The LCD screen is excellent, the best I ve seen, bright with very high resolution, its the same screen as in the top pro Nikon bodies.

The menu and setting available are well designed and give you all the flexability you could possibly want to tune the camera to your own liking.

The body will work with virtually all Nikon lenses ever made as it has a focusing motor built in, and it also works as a "commander" for an off camera Nikon flash which means you can be very creative with yours flash pictures if you have one both of which the cheaper Nikons do not have and makes the extra cost of the D90 well worthwhile.

One of the best things about it is the way it handles image noise at high ISO (light sensitivity). There is virtually no noise present at 1600iso which is amazing, and little at 3200iso, this means you can take pictures under poor lighting conditions with out flash or with an off camera flash over 200ft away.

All in all for the money its an excellent buy and if you can t take superb photos with it its not the cameras fault! At the moment its very cheap for what it is, less than £500 as there is a new model coming shortly which will no doubt be a bit better but will also be twice the price.
