Combining 12.3-megapixel image quality and 24fps D-Movie mode, the Nikon D90 embodies the hopes and dreams of passionate photographers everywhere! The DX-format CMOS sensor, coupled with EXPEED imaging tech and NIKKOR optics, brings you breathtaking images with amazing clarity. Shoot up to 4.5 frames per second! With less than a 15 millisecond power-up, and a 65ms shooting lag, you can capture the hottest action and the best moments with ease. This is the world's first DSLR with an HD Movie mode that records movie-quality clips with sound up to 720p HD (1280x720 pixels)!

The D90 feels solid and confident in your hands, with all the comfortably positioned controls and the Quick Access bar at the bottom of the review screen makes changing key settings a snap. The AF speed, accuracy and speed of handling are as good as any DSLR in its class, and the boost in continuous shooting is a real benefit to action photographers. The VGA screen is remarkably easy to use, showing fine details in playback showing clear fonts in the menus.

With a wide array of features that place it above and ahead of its predecessor, the D80, the D90 is a great semi-pro camera designed to delight the senses and give you a whole wide world of photography to explore.
