Best camera I've ever owned! Easy to use and great for shooting any kind of scenery or portraits! August 3, 2014
Not a camera problem but possibly lens problem I too had problem with err messages, but for me the problem was the lens and not the camera. It is a very good entry level camera for new hobbyists. May 31, 2014
Love it!! Does what I want with great results. Never had a problem! May 18, 2014
The first Digital that compares to my F100 I love this camera, and have shot with it for years now. It's the first digital I've worked with that took shops that rival my beloved F100. I've had great success selling my shots even at poster size (18"x30") and the color and detail is fantastic. Battery life is good, the combination of pre-programmed and manual settings allow for a great degree of precision, and it's done right by me. May 16, 2014
Like many others, I hit a lemon The camera itself is good and when it works, it performs very well in both automatic and manual modes. I got amazing shots with a little menu fiddling. So why am I so disapointed. I migrated from Canon to Nikon because someone had told me that Nikon were the most reliable. When we invest in many lens, flash and otehr SLR add ons, it is a commitment. My in-camera flash broke and needed fixing after a month. I had to wait three month for it to get repaired instead of getting a new one. When I did get it back, I started getting the freeze bug everyone is complaining about. Reading everybody's comments, I do not want to try their help desk (tryied everything and I'm still getting freezes) I know if I send it to Nikon, they will keep it forever, charge me some major $$ and return my camera without fixing it. My only question to Nikon, do tehy expect to make long term profits by selling cheap products to their customer and treating them like dirt afterward? My question to the rest of you. What is wrong with us that makes us believe a Sony, pentax or Olympus cannot do better. My only regreat is getting rid of all my great lens. April 17, 2014

Answer: 
Tiptee:

Two ways you can take B&W photo with the D-90 SLR.
One is before taking a picture push "MENU" on the left side of the camera back. Select "SHOOTING MENU" then with right arrow by the "OK" select "SET PICTURE CONTROL". Push the right arrow again by the OK on the right of the screen. Push down arrow to highlight Monochrome, and push OK. Now you can take Monochrome pictures.

Or after taking a color picture, go to "MENU". Select "RETOUCH MENU". Push arrow down to "Monochrome" and push OK. Select picture on the screen that you want to change to Monochrome and push "OK". Then "OK" again to confirm change. You will have a made a second copy in black & white of a color picture. You will still have the color copy also. Hope this helps you.

Answer: 
You can scroll through the menue, Camera, Set Picture Control, Monochrome, Toning-B&W.
However, you are probably better off taking the photo in Color and changing to Black and White in post with software.

Answer: 
Have your image displayed on the LCD display and press the OK button in the center of the multi-function button. Select monochrome from the menu that pops up, then black and white. Although I prefer to convert to B&W in post processing such as Lightroom, Photoshop, Apeture etc. Hope that helps.

Press the MENU button on the back of the D90. Using the arrows around the "OK" button, select "Shooting Menu", which is the second menu down (it looks like a camera), select "Set Picture Control", and select "Monochrome". Press "OK', and you should be set!

Answer: 
You don't. Sensor get light from your lens and capture the image. It comes in color right? :)

Then you grab your image (JPG or RAW) and turn it into the B&W snapshot. You can do it on your computer: iPhoto on MAC or Photoshop on PC. But you can do it right on your camera. On d90 hit the menu and then select Retouching (square with the brush) and choose Monochrome. Then select 1 of the 3 options and it will load your image list from your SSD card. Select image you like to turn B&W (hit OK) and BAM - you got 2 copies - colored and monochrome. Enjoy!

Answer: 
Two ways:
1. You can take your color photo and edit it in your favorite photo editing software.
2. You can push the "info" button on your D90. This will bring up the information screen. Push the "info" button again, and it will highlight the items on the bottom of the screen. Move the highlighted area to "Set Picture Control", and choose "Monochrome." Your photos will now be taken in black and white.

Answer: 
Press the Menu button, then press the navigation buttton left (left of center OK button). Then move up or down until the Shooting Menu appears. Scoll through the Shooting Menu to find "SET PICTURE CONTROL". Press OK and scoll down to Monochrome. In case you are interested, you will notice an OK at the right, but if you hit the right button instead of OK, you find some interesting options not available for color. You can choose a whole series of tones to apply. There are specialized filters and if you have not chosen Active D-Lighting, full control of contrast (Ansil Adams, Eat your heart out). If you often return to the same places that have consistant lighting, you might want to save the set-up with MANAGE PICTURE CONTROL. Then when you return to that location, just choose the C1-C9 that you have saved. I hope that you can save PRE White balance settings in there

To Shoot B&W with the D90. Do the following. Open MENU to SHOOTING MENU(first item). Go to Set Picture Control. Push the OK button and slect MC*Monochrome* push OK again. Close MENU. Once set you can start shooting B&W.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Since the first Nikon Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera was produce they have used the same bayonet on all their lenses. That means you can use any Nikon SLR lens on any current and/or older camera body. But be aware that the older lens do not have motors built-in to the lens and they will require that you use the manual setting on the camera body to determine the correct exposure and you will be required to manually focus the lens.

Answer: 
Any of the newer Nikon lenses will work great. There are also some other lenses made by Sigma, Tamron and Tokina which will work fine. I recommend using the stabilized lenses. Nikon recently introduced some fairly inexpensive VR lenses. (One being the 55-300mm) If you can afford the 70-200 f2.8 it is an awesome lens. I have also taken some great photos with the 70-300 VR. The 50mm f1.8 is extremely sharp and very inexpensive.

This group gives me the versatility I want from ultra wide to a long reach telephoto zoom. The 35mm Prime for normal range low light indoor shooting and the 50mm Prime for portrait shooting.

Answer: 
This page is for the D90 body—no lens is included at that price. The Nikon Store doesn't have any D90 kits right now, either, but it does have a D7000 kit that comes with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm lens.

Check your local retailer. If they have a kit, it likely includes the 18-105mm lens.

Answer: 
I have been using Photoshop CS5 but I think the method will be the same on CS3. Camera Raw is a program used to open and process NEF files (and other brands' raw files) and is a part of Photoshop CS. You have to make sure your version of Camera Raw supports Nikon D90 (to check, go to Adobe website). To open and process your NEF, simply open Photoshop, go to File - Open, locate your NEF file and double click to open. The file will automatically open in Camera Raw.
Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Each new camera is different from previous models, so software to read the newer files would need to be updated. Please contact the third party software vendor to see what update options they offer to read images from newer cameras in their software. Of course, for the best quality NEF conversion we recommend the use of Nikon Capture NX 2 or View NX 2.

Answer: 
If your question is whether the camera itself is compatible with Win7, the answer is that any camera is compatible with any operating system, since you're shooting either RAW or .jpg files. If nothing else you can pull the memory card and use a card reader (most newer laptops come with a built-in SD card reader), but Win7 recognizes my camera when I plug it in just fine.

If your question is whether the software that comes with the D90 is Win7 compatible, the answer is yes, it is. However, there are better alternatives for working with, storing and organizing photos.

Answer: 
If you want to check compatibility, you are probably talking more about software than the camera itself.

If you are shooting JPEG, probably any Windows / Linux / Mac / iPad will handle your photos wether it is connecting the camera directly to your PC or by inserting the SD card using a SD adapter / Slot.

The problems comes when using the RAW images. In that case I know that Adobe Bridge (Photoshop) and Adobe Lightroom are more than capable to open the RAW images coming out of the D90.

Answer: 
Yes, you'll be able to work with the D90 on your Windows 7 computer. The D90 ships with the software and cable you need to import your photos. And even if it didn't, there are plenty of free applications that manage photo importing from D-SLR cameras.

Also, the D90 is a great choice since you already have NIKKOR AF lenses. The camera has a built-in focusing motor, so you can use both AF and AF-S lenses. (AF lenses rely on the camera's built-in focusing motor, AF-S lenses have their own internal focusing motor.)

Enjoy!

Answer: 
Nope. Use the charger that came with the en-el3 battery. If you take over 700+ pictures at a time then get a second spare battery.

Answer: 
No. In fact, since the camera has to be on while it's connected to the computer to transfer files, it drains the battery. Use the charger that's supplied with the camera.

Answer: 
I don't believe that's possible. The battery charger is certainly the way to go here, and to tell you the truth, you would be better off buying a small card reader for image transfers to the computer. Going through the camera uses battery life, and worse yet, is slow when compared to the card readers. Card readers can be bought at any Target or Wal-Mart store for under $15.00...thins is cheap enough where the increase in speed makes it worth while to get one.

Answer: 
My D90 does NOT seem to charge in camera, I guess adding charging circuits would add weight. I wanted to be able to charge on-the-go. On ebay a found a 120v wall charger with a USB port and 12v car cord and it came with a 2000mAh battery for about $22. All works and I can charge while driving but I do prefer to use my official Nikon Batteries, nothing is wrong with the ebay battery I just trust Nikon much more.

Answer: 
No, but since being connected to the USB port drains power more quickly than shooting, the EH-5a power adapter can be purchased to power the camera while tethering it.

But don't buy a kit, choose your camera budy and lenses separately, lenses in kits are not the same good quality as the professional ones!

Answer: 
Depends on the kit. Right now, Nikon isn't selling any D90 kits in its online store (it's selling D90 bodies only), but it is selling a D7000 kit that includes the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens—a great all-in-one zoom lens. Check it out below.

If you're set on a D90 kit, check your local retailers. I've seen the D90 packaged with that same 18-105mm lens.

Answer: 
i would go with program mode and take a few test shots to check how high you should go with the iso. of course you want to keep the iso as low as possible to prevent excess noise. this will allow you to use it as if it's in auto but you can do it without the flash more easily

Answer: 
I'm assuming you have the 18 - 105 kit lens that came with the camera. If they allow flash, and you have an off the camera Nikon flash (SB600 or higher), you can put it on P and leave your ISO setting on Auto for up to 3200ISO and you will get good pictures. Because of ambient lighting at the play being mixed with the flash, I would leave the white balance on A. If you don't have an external flash, I would try and get as close as I can with the pop up flash. Definitely under 30 feet if you can. If you can get there a little earlier before the play starts, take a few shots of the stage with these settings and see how they come out as far as exposure is concerned. I would use the AF-A autofocus and the grid screen focusing screen. If this is confusing use the Auto on the left dial and let the D-90 decide. It does amazingly well.

Answer: 
First of all, please take some spare time (if you have any) & read your book. Want to know what's really great? Nikon has an online tutorial for the D90. I found it very enlightening. In addition to that, notice the dial on the left side of your camera. It will have your scene preference modes such as sports, close ups (the flower), & portrait.
You also have your manual, aperture priority, shutter priority, & program modes.I also recommend a good quality Nikon flash for your camera. It will help keep from draining your camera's battery when taking flash photography (indoors & low light conditions).

Answer: 
you can go into full auto mode until you start to feel comfortable with the camera. It will adjust everything for you and you will get good quality pictures from auto. Once you are used to how it feels and seeing what it does in auto start to play. :)

Best thing is to find a college or university- maybe even a local school who offer a basic course in SLR photography. I took one as a refresher and it was great.

Some of the best advice I had when I read about DSLR is to set your camera up on a tripod and start taking pictures - changing the settings as you go, and then checking the differences out when you have played and played with them. The best part of digital- you only pay for what you print- all the rest are great practice.
