Nikon’s new D90 digital SLR packs a 12.21 million image pixel CMOS sensor, 4.5 fps still photo shooting rate, LiveView and 720p video capture into a lightweight body with the same dimensions as the D80 it replaces. The new model is slated to ship in September 2008 at an expected street price of US$999.95 in the U.S.
One could suggest that a camera with character is simply the sum of its quirkiness. But, that's not the whole story. It's also those little features or controls that one discovers days or weeks after having read the manual, shot hundreds if not thousands of frames, and when they're uncovered, one is pleasantly surprised.
