Nikon take the lead with the introduction of a new feature not available in similar models from its competitors. While Nikon UK admitted that the firm will gauge interest from professional photographers before expanding the feature to more professional cameras, the D90 is expected to gain greater interest from enthusiast photographers.

The 12.3 million pixel resolution DSLR features a newly-designed DX-format CMOS sensor, which coupled with Nikonís Expeed image processing system provides a higher ISO sensitivity that ranges from 200 to 3200 (expandable to an ISO 6400 equivalent on Hi1 and ISO 100 on Lo1).

The Expeed technology also allow for better performances in Live View mode and with the newly-introduced Face Detection System, inherited from Nikonís Coolpix point-and-shoot cameras.

The D90 also shares some of the Nikonís D3 and D300 flagship camerasí features, such as the Scene Recognition System that uses a 420-pixel RGB sensor to analyse scene and colour information of the subject photographed. Based on these readings, the camera optimises its focus, exposure and white balance just before the shutter is released. In addition, in the cameraís 11-point AutoFocus mode, it uses the subjectís colour information to maintain a sharp focus as the subject moves in the frame.

But maybe the D90ís most surprising feature is the introduction of video capabilities. Claimed to be the first mid-class DSLR to offer a movie function, the D90 can record up to five minutes of high definition 720p, and an additional 15 minutes in other modes. The video mode is compatible with Nikkorís range of lenses from fisheye to telephoto glasses. The D90 can also record sounds in mono.

The camera also features a three-inch LCD screen with 170į viewing angle. Autofocus can be controlled in Live View mode with three options available Ė face priority, wide area and normal area.

The D90 will retail at £700 (body only) and £850 with the new 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens.[img][/img]
