It seems like having a DSLR is already a stylish trend for youngsters these days. Occasionally during weekends or public holidays, you can see a bunch of people carrying their bulky cameras shooting everything that comes into their sights in the middle of the city. Well guess what? I, too bought a DSLR camera few months ago. It is one of the latest DSLR from Nikon – Nikon D90. I have been thinking of having one quite some time ago until I finally decided to get one recently.
Why Nikon? Because it’s the best! Just joking though. I’ve been asking opinions from my friends who owns DSLR cameras and most of the feedbacks points me to Nikon instead of Canon. A friend of mine even changed his whole gear and all his lens from Canon to Nikon ones just because he felt that Nikon is much better. I believe this is just up to the user experience of determining which brand suits them more though.
So why D90? All because it’s a minor step down from D300. There are a few similarity with the higher level D300:-
Same 12.3 Megapixels image sensor
3.0-inch 920,000 pixel (VGA x 3 colors) TFT-LCD
Video recording (D90 is much better with HD video recording)
Other than that, D90 comes with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR (vibration reduction) kit lens. This lens is equivalent to 5.8x optical zoom which is quite enough for most daily use (although I just got myself a longer lense… will post up next time).
Is this DSLR camera really good? In my opinion, it feels great having this camera. It’s been fun shooting photos around with it and I’m learning more and more about photography every time I use it. This camera is quite pricey but it worth every penny of it.. haha..
