Nikon D90 test photos

Photokina report
Monday 1st, September 2008
Posted by: Dennis Hissink

As far as we can see, the first test samples offer high image quality. High ISO can be used with excellent results, through which Nikon continues its success that started with the introduction of the Nikon D3 and D300, and the Nikon D700 soon after. The user-friendliness for the Nikon user is superb as always and everything looks very familiar. These test photos have been taken with a full production model, meaning that this model is equivalent to the model that will be available to the consumer in September. The location of the pictures is the Amsterdam Zoo, called Artis, in the Netherlands.

Nikon D90 photo editing functions
Once you’ve got the composition you want, the Nikon D90 incorporates image-editing functions that make it easy for users to enhance images within the camera. There are several new retouch options: ‘Distortion Control’ adjusts lens aberration, ‘Straighten’ corrects the inclination of the image, while ‘Fisheye’ produces optical effects similar to that of a fisheye lens. There are also ample options for viewing and selecting the right shot, including 72-frame playback, calendar playback and histogram display for a magnified portion of the image.

Nikon Live view
The Nikon D90 has been designed with an eye-level pentaprism viewfinder, offering some 96% frame coverage. Yet, when looking through the viewfinder isn’t practical, simply press the Nikon D90’s Live View button and the 3-inch LCD with 170˚ viewing angle and approx. 920k-dot LCD support your Live View shooting with three contrast-detect AF modes: Face Priority, Wide Area and Normal Area. And when you’re not sure which camera settings are appropriate, try the advanced scene modes like Active D-Lighting and Picture Control for beautiful, crisp images every time.

Nikon D90 HD video
Capturing motion pictures with the Nikon D90 cannot be compared to the way you capture these with a camcorder. To begin with; the camcorder is built especially for capturing video and is therefore ergonomically well thought-out. The video function the Nikon D90 offers through the DSLR system is significantly different. First of all, capturing HD video without the use of a tripod is somewhat awkward and the auto focus is not available when filming. This is a real lack and, in my opinion, for a large part of the amateur target group, it means a diminution of the innovation. Check out the Nikon D90 Gallery at LetsGoDigital.
