Hello, my name is Collin Clemen, in this review, I’m gonna be doing a review on a Nikon D90 versus the Nikon D300. And what this review is for, it’s gonna be for people who are having trouble choosing between the D90 and the D300. Now I’m not necessarily comparing which one is better and which one is not, what I’m trying to do here is try to get people an idea of which camera might be right for them. There’s gonna be a lot of people out there who can't decide between the D90 or the D300. In this review I plan to help those people out. Now the first thing I’m gonna do in this review is go over the advantages of each camera, the Nikon D90 and the D300. First one I’m gonna do is the Nikon D90, and despite a lot cheaper, the Nikon D90 actually has a lot to offer over the D300, which might be useful to a lot of people. The first thing that it offers of course is the HD video, which not only allows you to just play high quality video on your large plasma TV screen, but because of its large sensor also controls noise a lot better than any other camcorder could. And since it’s a Nikon DSLR, you can use any Nikon lens on the D90, which is something you can't do with any other camcorder as well. For wide angle lens is on it, you can put a telephoto lens on it to get up close to things. And you can even use fish eye lenses on it to get a really interesting perspective as well. Now that’s not all the D90 offers over the D300, the D90 also offers a lot of small features that I find myself extremely useful. For instance it adds a couple of features to its active D lighting settings. It adds an extra high mode, which the D300 only goes up to high mode, and it adds an auto mode, which is something that you can only find in the D700 now. It also adds an info button on the back of the body, which is extremely useful as well. And of course the D90 offers a lot features that are useful for beginner photographers or intermediate photographers. It offers a lot of scene modes that are useful for photographers who aren’t quite use to the manual settings of say the D300, and it also offers retouching modes for people who don’t have image editing software. And of course, the D90 is a lot easier to use than the D300, a lot smaller and a lot lighter as well. And you get a lot more for the price you pay with the D90 compared to the D300. Now I’m gonna go over the advantages of owning a D300, but keep in mind, it is a lot more expensive than the D90. What the D300 mostly offers over the D90 is speed. For instance, with the grip on it, you can shoot 8 frames per second, without the grip it can shoot 6 frames per second, compared with the D90 which can only shoot 4.5 frames a second. It’s got a lot faster processing so those pictures are process really quickly. It’s got a much better autofocus system of 51 point autofocus system, that’s properly more accurate and a little bit faster, especially in low light. It’s a lot more durable than the D90. It’s got a much better build. It’s got magnesium alloy on the inside, and it’s got rubber sealing all over the little buttons parts, so dusts can't get in, which is very useful for outdoor photographers who face harsh weather conditions or a lot of dust. The D300 also offers a much larger and brighter viewfinder, which means that those photographers who take pictures in low light, you get a much brighter view of what you’re looking at and just basically for photographers who take pictures all the time, a larger viewfinder is quite a bit more useful. D300 also offers a better metering system, so you get better exposure and better white balance control. And of course the controls on this camera are a lot better for photographers who are more advance to use the camera more manually instead of automatically. Lastly, the D300 also offers 14 bit processing, which the D90 can only go up to 12 bit processing. And the D300 probably offers some other little features that I’m not mentioning as well over the D90. Finally in this last part of the review, I’m gonna go over who the D90 is for and who the D300 is for.
