Nikon has a wide range of dSLRs and professional-grade cameras known for their performance and reliability, including cameras from the entry-level dSLRs to high-end dSLRs such as the Nikon D4. The Nikon D90 stands in the mid-range category – better than the entry-level dSLRs such as the Nikon D5100, but lack the performance of the high-end D4.

DSLRs have always had a rather steep price, especially for the higher-grade models, so most consumers moving from compact cameras to dSLRs would probably find the entry-level dSLRs enough for their photography needs. However, not everyone is happy with entry-level dSLRs and some consumers would prefer a mid-range dSLR as they offer a combination of performance and price. The Nikon D90′s predecessor is the well-known D80. Many consumers wanted a update to the D80, due to the D80′s combination of price and performance. The D90 is thought by many as a befitting sucessor to the D80, with significant upgrades made to the hardware and software alike.

The Nikon D90 has a heavier weight than many other budget dSLRs, but offer rather value-for-money performance than many other dSLRs. It comes with a 12.9 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and a improved user interface. Another feature is the 4.5 fps shooting capability and EXspeed image processing engine.

Overall, the Nikon D90 is an attractive choice for newbies and average consumers alike.
