Our Verdict:
Several reviews mentioned that this digital camera is very able to produce good images but it has a bad autofocus and it's bad for video recording. It's a multi award winning and good spec 620g digital camera, with an Editor's Choice award from four expert review websites and 18 further awards from other expert sites. It has a built-in flash and an HDMI, does not have an image stabiliser and features multi burst mode.

Why Has it Scored 75?

reviews indicate that it has very good expert reviews with an average expert rating of 88%, based on 128 reviews. This digital camera has received 22 awards including a "Recommended" award from Akam.no plus four other sites and an "Editor's Choice" award from Photoxels.com plus three other sites.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer cameras with better features are available. However this Nikon digital camera has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
The D90 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Over 90 Different Nikon Lenses Available
Wide range of optical zooms depending on lens used
AF-S DX nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6g ED VR
70-300mm f/4.5-5.6g AF-S VR NIKKOR
Lower than average megapixels
Only 4288 x 2848 pixels image resolution
