Nikon D90

Price: $850-1200 new and used

Since it was announced a little over a year ago, the Nikon D90 has been one of the most popular digital SLRs on the market. At over $1000 you can’t really call it cheap. But compared to more expensive cameras and considering its features and potential longevity, the D90 is a great digital SLR investment. The D90 (along with the Nikon D3 and D300) established Nikon as the DSLR image quality leader in 2008. It’s a great camera any way you measure it but it really excels at high sensitivity settings (ISO). That makes the D90 excellent for photographers who need to freeze action or shoot in low light. The D90 was also the first digital SLR with an HD movie mode. Whether you want an all-purpose family camera, an upgrade for a serious photographer or you’re getting a student their first digital SLR, the Nikon D90 is a ton of camera for the money – even if you end up having to pay full price.
