The D90 also boasts five clever Advanced Scene Modes for ideal settings to deliver the best results in a variety of situations: portrait, landscape, close-up, sports and night portrait.
The awkward conditions sunny days can cause present no problems for this digital SLR, thanks to the Active D-Lighting system which reproduces the details in areas of highlight and shadow to give a truer view of what the human eye can see.
And capturing top-notch, fast-action sequences is also a doddle, as the D90 allows continuous shooting at 4.5 frames per second.
Images are kept blemish free, thanks to the D90’s Integrated Dust Reduction System, and the D90 features a large 3.0” LCD screen for easy framing, review and touching up of photos.
