Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera Single Lens Kit with 18-105mm Lens

Description

The first thing that will amaze photographers about the D90 is its stunning image quality, which takes its inspiration from Nikon s flagship DX-format digital SLR, the D300. The D90 s image sensor and 12.3 effective megapixels combine with Nikon s exclusive EXPEED image processing to deliver outstanding images featuring fine details, smooth tones, rich colours and low noise across a wide ISO sensitivity range. The D90 is equipped with an innovative movie shooting function that delivers genuinely cinematic results, enhanced by the creatively shallow depth of field made possible by the DX-format sensor. This is further refined by the optical quality and broad selection of NIKKOR lenses the same lenses relied upon by professional photographers the world over. Thanks to the D90 s large image sensor, D-Movie images exhibit less noise than those of a typical camcorder, most notably in low-light situations.

When mounted on any DX-format Nikon digital SLR camera, the picture angle is equivalent to that produced by a 27 to 157.5mm focal length lens on a 35mm-format film camera or Nikon FX-format camera. An ultra-compact Silent Wave Motor (SWM) built into the lens body ensures fast, quiet and accurate autofocus operation and complements the compact design for superb handling.

Nikon s VR (Vibration Reduction) function, specifically engineered for each NIKKOR lens, gives photographers the ability to shoot handheld at shutter speeds up to three stops slower than would otherwise be possible, thereby minimizing image blur caused by camera shake and delivering dramatically sharper pictures, especially in low-light conditions such as in interiors and at twilight.
