Nikon D90 DSLR Camera Review in India

These three DSLR cameras are some of the best choices from premium digital camera brand Nikon for professional photographers in India.

Nikon D90 DSLR Camera

Even though the D90 is a very old digital camera model now but it is still one best-selling DSLR in market today. The camera was one of the few DSLRs to introduce the video recording and its live view feature blew everyone’s mind at that time. But today after seven years many other DSLRs are available with higher specifications. If you want to buy this Camera, then you would certainly have to spend more money than it is worth. It is currently available for 52,462 INR which I think is quite a lot.

Build and Design: To know what the Nikon D90 DSLR Camera has to offer, we will have to go back to the time when it was launched. The camera is the successor to the D80 DSLR, which is not in the production now. The frame on, which the new camera was built, was exactly the same, but the details differed a lot.

Nikon D90 DSLR Camera Review in India

The Nikon DSLR Camera weighs about 600 grams that give more stability in hand while holding during photography. Further, this is made of a polycarbonate material which provides it a long durability. The camera body is covered with a rubber kind of material that gives a comfortable grip. The battery slot is on the bottom, but is secured with a flap that has a lock mechanism.

The command dialer featuring all the modes is on the left side. If you will look at the front you will find that this camera differs in many ways from the D80. Nikon did some serious experiments with the D90. The “OK” button is moved to the center of the four way keypad and two new buttons (“live view” and “info”) are added.

On the left side is a rubber flap cover. Under this cover, you will find the following connectivity ports- DC, USB, AV and HDMI. The D90 features both finger and thumb dials that make it very easy to change some settings.

Display: Like its predecessor the Nikon D90 DSLR Camera features two displays, a primary 3 inch display at the control region and a secondary information screen at the top. But unlike the D80, the display of the new camera makes the user experience very friendly. The “info” button that I mentioned earlier has various applications like if you will press it for the first time it will show the camera information, press it again and you will be taken to the quick access bar. And, pressing the same button during shooting mode you can go full screen and overlay a grid on the screen.

As the D90 also introduced the video recording feature, a small timer at the top-right corner of the display shows how much recording time is remaining.

The secondary display shows information on the battery status and the selected mode. It is very easy to read information on this display even in the bright daylight. The information that is available on this screen can also be seen on the primary display.

Performance: You might not get much impressed with the performance of the Nikon D90 DSLR Camera, but it was one of the best recommended cameras for beginners just some years back. It used to feature the specs that no other DSLR in its price range offered.

This DSLR features a 12.3 MP CMOS sensor that can generate an image of almost 12.3 million pixels. It was a big improvement over the D80 DSLR Camera that can only generate images of 10.2 million pixels. The Nikon D90 DSLR Camera features an ISO range of 200-3200, this change attracted many people at that time. The shutter speed range of 30 to 1/4000 seconds remains an attraction to this day.

The D90 DSLR is capable to shoot 4.5 frames per second, which is regarded as burst mode in the present day. But the figure goes down if you use the pop up flash. The D80 was only capable of shooting 3 frames per second.

As I have mentioned earlier also that the Nikon D90 DSLR Camera was one of the few DSLRs to introduce video recording feature. The maximum resolution at which it can record videos is 720p, which is not enough according to the present needs, but was more than enough at that time. The live view mode feature was one of the top selling points of this camera. It also allows to auto-focus the subject while tracking his face.

The 11 auto-focus points make it much easier for a user to shoot images. But only the central auto-focus point is capable of focusing the details both horizontally and vertically, the other points can only focus in one direction.

But on the battery front the performance of the Nikon D90 DSLR Camera is very bad. When it was launched everyone was criticizing its battery. If you plan for multiple shoots in a single day, then you will need multiple battery sets as it drains very fast.

A list of Pro Features:-

  • Solid build quality
  • The rubber like sheet that covers the camera body makes it much easy for a user to hold the camera.
  • The Live view mode helps a lot while recording video.
  • HDMI, USB, AV and DC connectivity options.
  • The secondary black and white display at the top makes it easier for a user to see camera information even in bright daylight.

Cons:-

  • It is priced at 52,462 INR which is too much according to me. You can easily get a DSLR with the same specs at much lower price.
  • If your work requires holding your camera in crazy positions then the Nikon D90 DSLR Camera is not for you as its display cannot be flipped out.
  • It was a very good camera back in 2008 but at present there are much better options available.

Nikon D5300 Digital SLR Camera

If you are in the photography business and have used an entry level DSLR like the Nikon D3300 for more than a year then you might want to get a little advanced. The upgrade that you would want might be some intermediate level camera and in this segment the Nikon D5300 DSLR Camera really has much to offer. The interface is so simple and friendly that even beginners can use this digital camera. It is available at the price of 46,878 rupees in online malls.

Design: Like the D3200, this camera, too, features a Monocoque Construction. In fact, the D5300 DSLR was the first camera from Nikon to feature this kind of construction and the benefit of which is that you get a strong and durable body. It is made of out of a polycarbonate material that further enhances its durability while making it lighter. It just weighs 480 grams and if you have used a DSLR like D90 in the past then you would certainly feel the difference.

The Nikon DSLR D5300 is compact and lighter than the D5200, but that doesn’t mean it packs less feature. It even packs more features than its predecessor.

The grip is also deeper than it was in the D5200 DSLR and due to less weight it feels a little uncomfortable. The control dialer above the thumb rest gives much comfort though. Adjacent to the control dialer, you would find two new buttons with Wi-Fi and GPS icon which I will discuss later in this review. The live view button is at the front of the dialer and you may accidentally press it sometimes. It feels quite annoying when you do.

What you will find different in this DSLR from any other entry level DSLRs is the absence of common buttons. This was the result of the introduction of a bigger screen. It may seem great to some people, but it is not. You will have to go a few more steps to do what earlier could be done in just one step.

On the top, you will find a stereo microphone with a lot of holes. It works very well though.

Display: The main attraction of the Nikon D5300 DSLR Camera is a 3.2-inch display that contains more than 1 million pixels. It is a flip-out display that means you can take it out and move it to any direction. This makes taking selfie much handy. It kind of feels awkward when you try to take a selfie in public with a DSLR, but if you want you can do it.

You might accidentally think that this screen has a touch sensor, but it is not the case. You will have to use the buttons and the four way keypad to change the settings. This is not an easy task as there are no buttons on the left side. The Canon DSLRs are ahead of Nikon’s when it comes to featuring a touch display.

One thing that will frustrate you is the fast turn off time of the screen. Just leave the DSLR for a few seconds without pressing any button and the screen will go off. There is no option in the settings to change this function. This is not the case with Canon DSLRs that allow setting the screen on time as “always”. But a few drawbacks don’t make this camera a bad performer.

Performance: The Nikon D5300 DSLR Camera does produce some nice and sharp images that you wouldn’t expect. It was all possible because of the new sensor and the new processor. This DSLR packs a 24.2 MP CMOS sensor in it. The new Expeed 4 image processor makes everything very smooth and you would generally not find any lag. On the video recording side, this camera can record videos up to 1080p at 60 frames per second.

It features a 39 point auto focus system, which is something you only find in a very high end DSLR. This camera focuses on the subject very fast no matter what the light conditions are.

You might get disappointed with Live View mode. The changes made in the aperture and ISO numbers do not appear live on the screen. This can even degrade your video recording experience.

The Nikon D5300 DSLR can prove to be the best camera for you if you are more of a RAW image person. The images shot with it pack much detail, which user can use in the post output processing. You can also set the default 12 bit processing function to 14bit. With this setting, the images may not appear much detailed on the camera but when you will put them in “Adobe Lightroom” or any other software like that then you will see what wonders can be produced.

Different ISO levels have also been improved. When compared with the D5200 DSLR, the images taken with this camera are less noisy and much sharp. In the continuous shooting mode, the buffer has also been improved.

This camera packs the Wi-Fi and GPS features built-in. With the GPS feature, you can tag location within the image itself. This makes it much easier to remember, which image was taken from where. The Built-in Wi-Fi feature enables the user to transfer images to another device without a cable. You can also control the camera using your smartphone over Wi-Fi, but this feature is not much advanced.

A list of Pro Features:-

  • More details in the RAW files
  • 39 auto focus points
  • Flip-out display
  • Improved burst mode

Cons:-

  • Live view mode is not much of use
  • Less buttons require more steps
  • A little highly priced

Nikon D3300 24.2MP Digital SLR Camera

It is sure that you cannot compare one camera with another because every camera has some unique features. But what we can do is choose a camera according to our needs. In the present day no camera is a bad choice, it all depends on your flavor. But flavor only comes if you have already used a DSLR. If you are a beginner then the Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera is only for you. It is one of the best entry-level DSLRs in market at present. Launched last year, it is currently priced at 29,527 INR. Considering this price point, it is a very great camera. This camera is the successor to the Nikon D3200 and is latest in the D3000 series.

Design: The Nikon D3300 DSLR features a Monocoque Construction, meaning that it is made from a single piece of material. This kind of construction makes it stronger, compact and lighter. In terms of weather sealing, the D3300 DSLR does not have a cover that results in either under umbrella photography or closed shutter. If you are planning photoshoot in rainy or mountain area, then you need to think twice before making a decision on the Nikon D3300.

Nikon has tried its best to make the Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera so compact that you can take it anywhere like a point and shoot camera. The result of this effort is in front of us. Although being so compact, the grip is still deep making it comfortable holding and the textured surface makes sure that it doesn’t slip easily from your hand.

It weighs only 460 grams that makes it very easy to carry. But this lightness can also create a problem for you by giving instability while holding the camera itself.

Kit Lens: One of the main selling points of the Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera is the new 18-55mm Kit Lens that comes along with it. In terms of the performance, it is no different from the Kit Lens that comes along the D3200, but what it differs is in the design. As it is clear till now that Nikon wanted to make this camera as compact as it could. This resulted in the introduction of a lock button on the lens that has given much compactness to it. The lens has been made collapsible with the help of a lock button. Before using it, first press the lock button and twist the zoom wheel, so that the lens expands to the normal position.

If you compare the new kit lens that comes along with the D3300 in locked form with the kit lens that comes with the D3200, you will find about 40 % reduction in size.

Display: The Nikon D3300 DSLR packs a 3-inch VGA display at the back. The display does not feature any kind of articulation due to which it becomes a little difficult to get the idea of composition while holding the camera in crazy positions. Unlike the D90, this camera doesn’t feature a secondary display.

The viewfinder has been improved and now has an accuracy rate of 95 percent, but that does not mean you should become careless during shooting. The remaining 5 percent can make a big difference if you start shooting blindly.

Performance: If you look clearly at the specs, you will find that the Nikon D3300 incorporates many features from the D3200 and the D90. But the difference is of the 24.2 MP CMOS sensor that really helps to create some stunning images.

Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera Quick Review in India

The Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera has got a big improvement over the D3200 on the front of low light imaging. It features an ISO range of 200 – 6400 that goes up to 12800 in the “hi” mode. Up to the 3200 ISO, you get very nice and noise free images. A little problem arises when you set ISO at 6400 or above, but considering the price of this camera it is really an exception.

The 11 Auto focus points work very well when you are in bright light, but as soon as you try to shoot an object under the normal light the problems start appearing. Changing the active auto focus point is very simple though, you just have to use the four way keypad to select the desired point.

The D3300 DSLR Camera gives very sharp and bright snaps. One of the main reasons behind this is the absence of low pass filter. You generally don’t get a camera without low pass filter for such a low price.

One thing that made me much disappointed was that this camera doesn’t focus automatically to the subject while recording a video. You will have to do it manually if you want to focus something. One thing that you can do extra is use the live tracking feature. But for that also your subject should have high contrast in relation to the background. The good news is that you can record 1080p videos at 60 frames per second.

The D3300 shoots at 5 frames per second, it is really fast. But the buffer is not far behind, after few seconds only the figure will be reduced to about 1.5 frames second because of it.

Another thing that I like the most about this camera is the guide mode. If you have not used a DSLR in the past then the mode will make everything easier for you.

Some people might get disappointed with the absence Wi-Fi connectivity, but you can use an external module if you badly need that feature.
