Nikon D90 DSLR images and specs leak

Ewdison Then - Aug 25, 2008

Nikon’s D90 looks to be all but officially confirmed, with all-round press shots of the DSLR emerging together with what are being described as “100-percent legit” specifications.  The 12.3-megapixel camera will have an ISO range of 200 to 3.200 plus Lo1 (100) and Hi 1 (6.400), a 3-inch 900k pixel LCD and GPS, together with video recording and playback via the built in microphone and speaker.

Nikon have included Live-View, AF contrast and face detection, and the autofocus is 11-point; there’s also a matrix sensor for metering 420 pixels RGB.  Target’s online store briefly listed the D90 as pre-release, but the page has since been taken down.

  • AF-S DX 18-105 mm f/3,5-5,6G ED VR
  • 15 elements/11 groups
  • 1 aspherical
  • 1 ED
  • 1 Hybrid Asph.
  • Minimum focus: 0,45 m
  • Diaph. blades: 7

An official announcement is expected this Wednesday, August 27th.  No word on pricing or availability, however.
