Nikon D90
12.3 megapixel Nikon DX CMOS sensor; D-Movie mode (with 720-HD resolution); 3-inch Live View LCD; Secure Digital memory storage; HDMI output
By , Last updated on: 5/18/2014

The Nikon D90 is getting on in years, but it's still one of the best dSLRs for under $1,000, particularly for hobbyists with a little bit of experience shooting with dSLRs. This camera is the best of both worlds, taking some advanced features from the upper-echelon Nikon SLRs and mixing them with the user-friendly, approachable design of the entry-level SLRs. Since its release two years ago, it's been a favorite with photography enthusiasts and still holds its own against newer models. Rumors come and go that a replacement is imminent, and the new D5100 certainly could be a replacement, but Nikon has not indicated that they'll discontinue the D90 just yet. With that in mind, however, we've knocked its rating down a peg, since its feature set is somewhat quaint by the most current standards.
