Tiptee:

Two ways you can take B&W photo with the D-90 SLR.
One is before taking a picture push "MENU" on the left side of the camera back. Select "SHOOTING MENU" then with right arrow by the "OK" select "SET PICTURE CONTROL". Push the right arrow again by the OK on the right of the screen. Push down arrow to highlight Monochrome, and push OK. Now you can take Monochrome pictures.

Or after taking a color picture, go to "MENU". Select "RETOUCH MENU". Push arrow down to "Monochrome" and push OK. Select picture on the screen that you want to change to Monochrome and push "OK". Then "OK" again to confirm change. You will have a made a second copy in black & white of a color picture. You will still have the color copy also. Hope this helps you.

You can scroll through the menue, Camera, Set Picture Control, Monochrome, Toning-B&W.
However, you are probably better off taking the photo in Color and changing to Black and White in post with software.

Have your image displayed on the LCD display and press the OK button in the center of the multi-function button. Select monochrome from the menu that pops up, then black and white. Although I prefer to convert to B&W in post processing such as Lightroom, Photoshop, Apeture etc. Hope that helps.

Press the MENU button on the back of the D90. Using the arrows around the "OK" button, select "Shooting Menu", which is the second menu down (it looks like a camera), select "Set Picture Control", and select "Monochrome". Press "OK', and you should be set!

You don't. Sensor get light from your lens and capture the image. It comes in color right? :)

Then you grab your image (JPG or RAW) and turn it into the B&W snapshot. You can do it on your computer: iPhoto on MAC or Photoshop on PC. But you can do it right on your camera. On d90 hit the menu and then select Retouching (square with the brush) and choose Monochrome. Then select 1 of the 3 options and it will load your image list from your SSD card. Select image you like to turn B&W (hit OK) and BAM - you got 2 copies - colored and monochrome. Enjoy!

Two ways:
1. You can take your color photo and edit it in your favorite photo editing software.
2. You can push the "info" button on your D90. This will bring up the information screen. Push the "info" button again, and it will highlight the items on the bottom of the screen. Move the highlighted area to "Set Picture Control", and choose "Monochrome." Your photos will now be taken in black and white.

Press the Menu button, then press the navigation buttton left (left of center OK button). Then move up or down until the Shooting Menu appears. Scoll through the Shooting Menu to find "SET PICTURE CONTROL". Press OK and scoll down to Monochrome. In case you are interested, you will notice an OK at the right, but if you hit the right button instead of OK, you find some interesting options not available for color. You can choose a whole series of tones to apply. There are specialized filters and if you have not chosen Active D-Lighting, full control of contrast (Ansil Adams, Eat your heart out). If you often return to the same places that have consistant lighting, you might want to save the set-up with MANAGE PICTURE CONTROL. Then when you return to that location, just choose the C1-C9 that you have saved. I hope that you can save PRE White balance settings in there

To Shoot B&W with the D90. Do the following. Open MENU to SHOOTING MENU(first item). Go to Set Picture Control. Push the OK button and slect MC*Monochrome* push OK again. Close MENU. Once set you can start shooting B&W.
Another way is go ahead and shoot in color then convert to B&W. Then go to MENU again open RETOUCH MENU and pick Monochrome then you can choose B&W or SEPIA or Cyanotype. then you pick the picture you want to convert to B&W push ok then save. It will create a new B&W picture. You do not lose the original color picture.

Nikkor FX and DX series, FX series are professional ones and you can use them with Nikon FullFrame Digital SLR cameras like D700 and D3 series. But working with DX series are easier because of AF and Image Stabilizer on it.

Thank you for your question. Since the first Nikon Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera was produce they have used the same bayonet on all their lenses. That means you can use any Nikon SLR lens on any current and/or older camera body. But be aware that the older lens do not have motors built-in to the lens and they will require that you use the manual setting on the camera body to determine the correct exposure and you will be required to manually focus the lens.

Any of the newer Nikon lenses will work great. There are also some other lenses made by Sigma, Tamron and Tokina which will work fine. I recommend using the stabilized lenses. Nikon recently introduced some fairly inexpensive VR lenses. (One being the 55-300mm) If you can afford the 70-200 f2.8 it is an awesome lens. I have also taken some great photos with the 70-300 VR. The 50mm f1.8 is extremely sharp and very inexpensive.

I use five different lenses. 1) 11-16mm Tokina f/2.8, 2) 18-105mm Zoom Nikkor VRII, 3) 70-300mm Zoom Nikkor VRII, 4) 50mm Prime f/1.8D Nikkor, and 5) 35mm Prime f/1.8G Nikkor. This group gives me the versatility I want from ultra wide to a long reach telephoto zoom. The 35mm Prime for normal range low light indoor shooting and the 50mm Prime for portrait shooting.

This page is for the D90 body—no lens is included at that price. The Nikon Store doesn't have any D90 kits right now, either, but it does have a D7000 kit that comes with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm lens.

Check your local retailer. If they have a kit, it likely includes the 18-105mm lens.

I have been using Photoshop CS5 but I think the method will be the same on CS3. Camera Raw is a program used to open and process NEF files (and other brands' raw files) and is a part of Photoshop CS. You have to make sure your version of Camera Raw supports Nikon D90 (to check, go to Adobe website). To open and process your NEF, simply open Photoshop, go to File - Open, locate your NEF file and double click to open. The file will automatically open in Camera Raw.
Hope this helps.

Try updating your complete CS3 package which includes Camera RAW, the component necessary to open RAW images. Its probable that you are using a Adobe Camera RAW database that doesn't have the D90.

Each new camera is different from previous models, so software to read the newer files would need to be updated. Please contact the third party software vendor to see what update options they offer to read images from newer cameras in their software. Of course, for the best quality NEF conversion we recommend the use of Nikon Capture NX 2 or View NX 2.

Question

Is the D90 MS Windows 7 compatible?

I'm contemplating moving into DSLR cameras from several years of Canon P&S. All my 35mm film cameras were Nikons and I want to keep using my existing Nikkor AF lenses. However, we just got a new computer with Windows 7 (64-bit install) and I just need to know if the D90 would be compatible. Thanks!

If your question is whether the camera itself is compatible with Win7, the answer is that any camera is compatible with any operating system, since you're shooting either RAW or .jpg files. If nothing else you can pull the memory card and use a card reader (most newer laptops come with a built-in SD card reader), but Win7 recognizes my camera when I plug it in just fine.

If your question is whether the software that comes with the D90 is Win7 compatible, the answer is yes, it is. However, there are better alternatives for working with, storing and organizing photos.

If you want to check compatibility, you are probably talking more about software than the camera itself.

If you are shooting JPEG, probably any Windows / Linux / Mac / iPad will handle your photos wether it is connecting the camera directly to your PC or by inserting the SD card using a SD adapter / Slot.

The problems comes when using the RAW images. In that case I know that Adobe Bridge (Photoshop) and Adobe Lightroom are more than capable to open the RAW images coming out of the D90.

Yes, you'll be able to work with the D90 on your Windows 7 computer. The D90 ships with the software and cable you need to import your photos. And even if it didn't, there are plenty of free applications that manage photo importing from D-SLR cameras.

Also, the D90 is a great choice since you already have NIKKOR AF lenses. The camera has a built-in focusing motor, so you can use both AF and AF-S lenses. (AF lenses rely on the camera's built-in focusing motor, AF-S lenses have their own internal focusing motor.)

Enjoy!

No. In fact, since the camera has to be on while it's connected to the computer to transfer files, it drains the battery. Use the charger that's supplied with the camera.

I don't believe that's possible. The battery charger is certainly the way to go here, and to tell you the truth, you would be better off buying a small card reader for image transfers to the computer. Going through the camera uses battery life, and worse yet, is slow when compared to the card readers. Card readers can be bought at any Target or Wal-Mart store for under $15.00...thins is cheap enough where the increase in speed makes it worth while to get one.

My D90 does NOT seem to charge in camera, I guess adding charging circuits would add weight. I wanted to be able to charge on-the-go. On ebay a found a 120v wall charger with a USB port and 12v car cord and it came with a 2000mAh battery for about $22. All works and I can charge while driving but I do prefer to use my official Nikon Batteries, nothing is wrong with the ebay battery I just trust Nikon much more.

No, but since being connected to the USB port drains power more quickly than shooting, the EH-5a power adapter can be purchased to power the camera while tethering it.

Depends on the kit. Right now, Nikon isn't selling any D90 kits in its online store (it's selling D90 bodies only), but it is selling a D7000 kit that includes the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens—a great all-in-one zoom lens. Check it out below.

If you're set on a D90 kit, check your local retailers. I've seen the D90 packaged with that same 18-105mm lens.

i would go with program mode and take a few test shots to check how high you should go with the iso. of course you want to keep the iso as low as possible to prevent excess noise. this will allow you to use it as if it's in auto but you can do it without the flash more easily

I'm assuming you have the 18 - 105 kit lens that came with the camera. If they allow flash, and you have an off the camera Nikon flash (SB600 or higher), you can put it on P and leave your ISO setting on Auto for up to 3200ISO and you will get good pictures. Because of ambient lighting at the play being mixed with the flash, I would leave the white balance on A. If you don't have an external flash, I would try and get as close as I can with the pop up flash. Definitely under 30 feet if you can. If you can get there a little earlier before the play starts, take a few shots of the stage with these settings and see how they come out as far as exposure is concerned. I would use the AF-A autofocus and the grid screen focusing screen. If this is confusing use the Auto on the left dial and let the D-90 decide. It does amazingly well.

First of all, please take some spare time (if you have any) & read your book. Want to know what's really great? Nikon has an online tutorial for the D90. I found it very enlightening. In addition to that, notice the dial on the left side of your camera. It will have your scene preference modes such as sports, close ups (the flower), & portrait.
You also have your manual, aperture priority, shutter priority, & program modes.I also recommend a good quality Nikon flash for your camera. It will help keep from draining your camera's battery when taking flash photography (indoors & low light conditions).

you can go into full auto mode until you start to feel comfortable with the camera. It will adjust everything for you and you will get good quality pictures from auto. Once you are used to how it feels and seeing what it does in auto start to play. :)

Best thing is to find a college or university- maybe even a local school who offer a basic course in SLR photography. I took one as a refresher and it was great.

Some of the best advice I had when I read about DSLR is to set your camera up on a tripod and start taking pictures - changing the settings as you go, and then checking the differences out when you have played and played with them. The best part of digital- you only pay for what you print- all the rest are great practice.

Yes there are standard settings. There is the basic "point and shoot" setting, like in most (if not all) Nikon cameras. There are also some presets as well. I generally use the aperature selection setting that allows you to select the aperture. Generally I think that using the f-stop 8 is great for nature photos. Alot of the great photos also depend on the lens that you use. While the kit lens is quite good, there are great lenses out there that will reduce the geometric distortion and color aberations. You also will need to make sure that the ISO setting is appropriate for the amount of light. I generally keep the ISO at 400 and auto, whch means that it will prefer 400 but can change this if 400 is not going to expose properly.
In general, if you are a beginner, try to use the automatic presets until you feel comfortable and little by little begin to experiment with using manual settings changing things one by one to see what they do.
Also, remember that you can take an image and save the NEF and the jpg together. This will allow you to edit the NEF and perhaps make some corrections. I use capture NX2 for this. Aoot of the images that you will find on the web have probably been "corrected" -- this includes sharpening and color correction, white balance, and correcting the lens distortions and the color aberations. This is why they look so good.
Finally, when you really get used to the camera, alot of these corrections can be made during capture time. Of course if you save the NEF, you can change even these corrections. You can manually determine the white balance, and add sharpening and noise corrections and many other things that will happen during processing. This will allow you to be in a situation where the editing that you need to do will be minimalized.
I hope all this is clear. Good luck, you have a great camera.

I use shutter speed priority set at about 1/30 sec. along with an ISO of about 800. Using a VR lens produces nice results for me. Shoot a few test shots to see that the exposure graph is fully used without crowding either end of the graph. Use the ISO to adjust the basic exposure level to get full usage of the low light ability of the D90. (If there is a chance to shoot a dress rehearsal, you can quickly find the needed settings for the full production)

If you are shooting at high speed and fill the buffer up with max size raw shots and then turn the camera off it will continue to load the shots from the buffer to the card. Even using max speed cards the access lamp will remain lit until the process is complete which, I have found can be from 5 to 10 seconds. If you are using slower speed cards the lamp can remain lit even longer.

4. Turn off your camera, remove battery, charge it to full charge and remove the memory card.
5. Put the card and battery back and see. If the problem is still; check the memory card compatible with Nikon D90. Good Luck.

Perhaps you are tatking so many pictures,Are you shooting burst speed? Time is needed to write them to memory. perhaps upgrading your memory card to a card with more speed and GB ability might be all that you need, Something along the lines of a SanDisc, Kingston, or Lexar 16GB. NEVER SKIMP , buy the best memory card with a minimum of 8GB extreme III.

Good luck!

Nikon has two sensor sizes for their DSLR's: FX = full frame (larger), and DX = smaller than FX but larger than a point-and-shoot type of camera.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "full sensor metering," if you mean is there a metering mode that goes off of the light exposed to the entire frame (your whole scene), yes there is a setting for that. I don't use it, but it's there. I don't have the manual handy, but it's online. Look at the section on metering modes.

If you mean 'Exposure' metering, yes. But there are several modes of metering to choose from. Some modes use multiple areas on the sensor, or all of the sensor to meter the shot at one time, others intentionally use specific areas only.

But...
If that wasn't your question, and you wondered if this is a "Full Frame" camera, utilizing a sensor size equal to 35mm, the answer is no. This is an APS-C sensor. But then, I'd suggest two things - one your question was off kilter, and the 2nd answer is well known to most Pro-sumer Nikon buyers. Suggesting this camera may be more than you need.

It is "Cropped". The effect is 1.5 x, so a 300mm lense would be a 450.

Its an APS sensor. Smaller than a full frame sensor such as in the DX3 but much larger than a point and shoot camera. More than enough even for a poster size picture. Unless you are cropping 200% and then expecting a sharp picture it is perfectly acceptable.

If you want a prime and not a zoom lens, i recommend the nikkor 50mm f/1.8 or 50mm f/1.4. The 1.4 is better for low light but the 1.8 is adequate in most situations. I have heard it termed "the nifty fifty". I own one in 1.8 and wouldn't trade it for anything. on the zoom side, the nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S DX VR or even non VR is nice. I own this one also.

I'm assuming that you want to do this without flash. A 50mm 1.8 lens would be great even with existing light photography. Fast, sharp, can be used with big aperture for shallow depth of field for portraits if needed. Because of the APC sensor size it is approximately 80mm perpective. Ideal for portraits. Very inexpensive lens and good value.

I would suggest that you save some more coin and if serious about close up, portrait, indoor work go for the gusto and reach for the AF DC Nikor 135 F/2D. This glass is AWESOME for that type work. Unfortunitely this was one that was stolen with much of my other Nikon equipment. This is a super piece of glass. These are pieces of glass that is lifetime. You can't go wrong with this lens.

An 18-55 mm lense should be sufficient & cost is reasonable. I actually paid under 200
dollars for an excellent 50 mm (Nikon!). It works great with my D90 & is ultra fast. Its fastest aperture is a whopping F1.8. You won't find that in zoom lenses without paying
a hefty price.

The 'nifty fifty' 50mm 1.8 is absolutely perfect for close-up indoor portraits on DX. And it's cheap! If you need to go even closer you need a macro lens, but I doubt you want to go that close for portraits.

ah... $230 is not nearly enough for all this. indoor photos: unless you have a big space, you'll need a wide lens. portrait photos: you'll need a moderate tele lens, the brighter the better. close up: you'll need a macro lens. my suggestion: decide which situations require autofocus, and buy an autofocus lens for that, and buy used, manual focus, bright (f/1.8 or f/2) fixed lenses for the others. or: use a kit lens (18-xx) for the wide shots, and buy a used 55mm nikkor-micro for portrait and close up work.

There is no way to accurately tell the total number of times your camera shutter has released. While there are third party software applications designed to read a cameras shutter count, this number is not always accurate because the shutter release times may be reset by firmware updates, or reset in the Service department if certain parts are replaced or other operations are performed. The D90 has been tested to over 100,000 cycles.

As far as I know, HDMI is only for displaying pictures and movies on video devices, modern flat-screen TV sets notably. The images look fantastic when I do this with my D90! Transferring video to a computer is done the same way you transfer photos, either with the USB cable, or with a memory card reader.

You don't use an HDMI cable to transfer the video. You can use a standard micro-USB cable to transfer the files to manipulate them on your computer.

The HDMI cable would be used to interface with a TV or monitor, to view movies or pictures, but it's not a data transfer cable.

Incidentally, the D90 uses a Mini-HDMI port, so you need a cable with a Mini port on one end and a standard port on the other. I don't recommend using an adapter, because that puts stress on the connection and will wear it out prematurely.

If your HDTV has an extra HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) input socket, you can connect the D90 and other recent model Nikons directly to the TV. The D90 has a socket on the side for an HDMI cable. The only thing to keep in mind is that a regular HDMI cable will not work, as the socket on the D90 body is a little smaller than a regular HDMI input. You will need an HDMI cable with a Type C mini-HDMI connector on one end and a type A standard connector on the other end.

No problems using the mac/apple products. Remove the SD card from the camera, insert it into a card reader(must buy it separately) insert reader/reader's connection cord in the computers USB slot. Start iPhoto or Aperture(I perfer aperture) and import photos. Word of caution if you shoot allot of photos, predetermine you filing sequence and folder names so that you can find you photos easy. I use this folder configuation: YYYYMMDD-DD "ID name", for example "20110415-16 Car photos". In the 1 1/2 years I had the D90 I shot 15,000 photos and deleted about 3000 of them to end up with about 12,000 photos and its tough to find things if they aren't filed user friendly. With the above format If I know the approximate date or subject I can narrow it down.

If your question is, "Can I import photos from my D90 with my Mac?", the answer is yes. Your Mac likely has an application installed named Image Capture. It will import your photos straight into iPhoto if you want. Just plug in your D90's USB cable and open the application.

IMO none of the above... The D7000 would be best. It is a more professional build, weather sealed, and accepts more lenses than any other model you are considering.

That really depends on your needs and wants in a camera. The D90, in my opinion, is the most versatile. It can auto focus lenses with built in motors (af-s) and the older screw style (af-d). It seems to have less noise at higher iso ratings, making image quality better in low light situations. the d5000 is the only 1 of the 3 you list with a swing out lcd (nice, but only in certain situations), The d3100 has more megapixels, more does not constitute better, than the other 2 you mentioned. The d90's 12 mp's is capable of producing stunning enlarged canvas prints up to 30 inches (so could my 10 mp d60. it all boils down to what you want and can afford to get. I chose the d90, bought a d60 to go with it, and have sold the d60 due to the lack of a built in focus motor. lens compatibility is key for me, but not for others.

I only got to use the D-90 for a short period of time. It performed as expected. Was pleased with the results and I would recommend this body for anyone considering getting into photography. I am replacing my equipment slowly that was all stolen from me in 6/2010. Looking at the D-90 as a possible replacement for my N-80 film body.

After reviewing all 3 cameras, I could recommend the D3100 as a good choice, but the D90 well worth the extra money if you can afford it. It allows you a wider range of lenses
to choose from without giving up your autofocus abilities. This includes older & newer lenses, & 12 mega pixels is way plenty to work with!

either d5100 (same sensor as the d7000, which i own and is grrrreat, very good low light work, beautiful images all around) but then you lose autofocus on older, non af-s lenses; or the d3100 if you can settle with a little bit less low-light performance (but still very good). unless you are really serious about getting into photography, i don't recommend the d7000 (it's not a beginner's camera, it's way too good for that, and way too expensive), d90 and d5000 have both been superseded recently.

If you are going to play with old AF lens, D90 or the newer D7000 is you minimum, I don't know about the D5000 but the D3100 will lock up the shutter if it can't find a newer Nikon g lens(Build in motor lens). And the user interface on the D90/D7000 is a lot better(more button), save you a lot of time when you need to change you camera setting.

Gav,
Thanks for your question. Since the first interchange lens made by Nikon until today Nikon has used the same bayonet so all Nikon lens will mount to any Nikon body. The lenses you used on your F2A do not have motors to allow for auto focus and you will have to manual meter and focus your lenses.

I'm not a professional, but, I would guess no. Easy way to find out...take your lens into a good camera shop and ask a pro.

But keep in mind, there is a huge tech gap between 1971 when the "F2" was released and even if it did fit, you would be negating all the positive advances in that tech. If you are looking for a fast way to cool digital style, I think you will be disappointed. Shoot the film, have a developer get it to digital format.

Otherwise get the D90 with a nice AF/MF anti vibration lens and you will be set.

You should be able to plug your D90 into your computer. If your computer does not recognize it, it (your computer) will ask if you would like to find the drivers online.
The Nikon store also has software you can buy online or will refer you to a reliable website offering what you seek.

Why do you need the software? With a Mac everything's built right in to OS X if you're running a current version.

For best results and the least amount of $$, I'd recommend running Snow Leopard with a copy of Aperture from the Mac App Store for just $79 - sweet deal on one of the best photography applications you can buy!

Yes, there is a setting to set how long the LCD should remain on within the menu. There is another option for how long it will preview an image after you take it. With a DSLR most users will only use the LCD to preview an image rather than compose and shoot with it. Especially since it is hard to see in daylight and will decrease battery life considerably.

The rear lcd or top lcd? The rear will diplay a photo after capture for a pre-determined lenght of time before going back to sleep (can be adjusted in camera settings). This does not occur when using live mode but I believe live mode has it's own time out setting as well. The top lcd will display information until the toggle switch is moved to the off position, even then it will continue to diplay a number in, i believe, the bottom right corner

there are timers in your CSM (custom settings menu) which you can set. if you set those, the LCD (either in playback or info or live view) will turn off after that many seconds that you specified. so it's perfectly normal, it's there to save you battery time.
