"A Nikon D300 for everybody......"4.0 starson by sbozzy
Pros: Very similar photo quality/features to the D300
Great sensitivity up to ISO6400 great noise reduction to ISO3200
920000 LCD. Incredible!
Light but not to light.
Great Nikon VR lens
Cons: Video Recording without auto focus or exposure changes for 5 minutes.....weak, Doesnt look any better than DV at best. Needs work. Spoiled by my Sony HDV camera.
Summary: I found the D90 as a very impressive Prosumer DSLR camera, with alot of the great features and photo quality of the D300. Also a 920000 pixel LCD that is as clear as it can be. I was saving to buy the D300, but I think D90 is a D300 in a lighter body. I aways believed that the VR feature was a gimmick, but I have never been able to shoot handheld shots with such a long shutter without smear. Nikon makes the best VR lens in the biz. Im looking for a telephoto Nikon VR ASAP
I believe the video recording needs more work though (auto focus, exposure, and time limit recording) not impressed. But the D90s a great camera. Its definately a poormans D300. Great step up from the D80.
