Now is the time for new creativity, and to rethink what a digital SLR camera can achieve. It's time for the D90, a camera with everything you would expect from Nikon's next-generation D-SLRs, and some unexpected surprises, as well. The stunning image quality is inherited from the D300, Nikon's DX-format flagship. The D90 also has Nikon's unmatched ergonomics and high performance, and now takes highquality movies with beautifully cinematic results. The world of photography has changed, and with the D90 in your hands, it's time to make your own rules.
