Its image sensor and 12.3 effective megapixels combine with Nikon’s EXPEED image processing to deliver fine detail, smooth tones, and low noise across a wide ISO sensitivity.
Auto focus, exposure and white balance are also features of the new camera, which are provided by the company’s Scene Recognition System. Live View mode allows shooting while confirming the subject on the large 3-inch, approximately 920k-dot, high-density colour LCD and offers three contrast-detect AF modes to allow photographers to focus on any ponint in the frame. In addition to wide and normal area AF, the D90 offers face priority AF in Live View mode for even sharper pictures of people.
The D90 has a precise eye-level pentaprism viewfinder with approximately 96 percent (centred) frame coverage and an easy-to-view 19.5mm eyepoint. The built-in 16-frame superimposed grid display can be activated to assist in the creation of better-balanced compositions.
A new optional GPS unit offers location information such as latitude, longitude, altitude and time, which is automatically recorded to each image’s EXIF data.
