The new Nikon D90 DSLR camera has just been announced and definitely will be one of the hottest selling SLR cameras this Holiday season. So it is no wonder that we right away list it in our Top 10 Digital Camera Gift Guide 2008 as part of our 100 Gift Tip Countdown to the Thanksgiving Sales.

The DX-format digital SLR D90 features 12.3MP and EXPEED image processing, which delivers images featuring fine details, smooth tones, rich colors and low noise across a wide ISO sensitivity range.
The Nikon D90 movie function allows you to shoot 320 x 216 pixels, 640 x 424 pixels or HD720p (1,280 x 720 pixels) movies at the professional smoothness of 24 frames per second in motion JPEG format. The Nikon D90's sensor, which is much larger than the sensor of a typical camcorder, ensures higher image quality and exceptional low-noise, high ISO sensitivity performance, even during movie shooting.
Other features of the Nikon D90 include Nikon's exclusive Scene Recognition System, Live View, 3 inch screen, 0.15-second start-up, and 65ms shutter release time lag.

For Whom:
The Nikon D90 is a great gift for anybody who wants to seriously start taking high quality photos with SLR technology. It is not an entry DSLR camera by definition, but it definitely can be the first SLR camera to own.

The Good:
New Higher Resolution
Live View
Video Recording

The Bad:

It is a SLR camera, therefore it does not fit in your pant pocket.
