Thanks Mike, for the moving comment. I appreciate the prayers and well wishes.

I still shoot as much as I can, not as much as I wish. My back doesn't allow me the free movement to which I used to be privileged.  Standing upright for more than five minutes is a real chore and exercise in irritable pain. Most of my shooting is limited from a seated position...either in the car or scooter. I can still enjoy the out-of-doors shooting provided it's not too strenuous.

Since I purchased my new D7000 the D90 has been earning a well deserved rest as my standby. I still use it from time-to-time as I am so used to it. I have a custom leather camera strap built by a gentleman in California, that allows me to carry two camera on the same strap. ...very handy at times. I usually configure the D90 with my Tokina 12-24 and the D7000 with the Nikkor 18-200. That's quite a heavy load of glass around my neck, but I manage.

I considered the D7100. But in doing my own research and comments from Ken Rockwell, I opted for the D7000. The additional MP don't mean a hill of beans in my type of photography. You'll only notice those extra eight MP's if you're making prints 10 feet wide or cropping out gnat sized images. On the enlargements I do, you can not tell the difference. The largest I have done in the last few years is 16x20 and you don't need 24MP for that. I can't tell any difference in the images between the D90 and the d7000, just more technology available in the 7000.

Robert:

 

I was moved when I read the article below, particularly the point of your illness. I don't know all the terms, myeloma I DO. It is a terrible word. 

 

How are you feeling? Are you still able to shoot as you wish? Do you still shoot? If so what?

 

I am not outwardly religious, it is a private thing to me. Everynight part of my prayers to God deal with cancer, God please help us find cures for all cancers. In short form.

 

I will now include your name in my prayers.

 

I have never written a note such as this, so not that good at it.

 

I do have a D90 as you, good camera, I also think I have worn it out, and will probably by a d7100. For 5 years I have been taking photos 6 to 7 days a week.

 

Anyway, not good at this as I said, but you will be in my prayers.

 

Mike

I'm a retired professional photography living in Wichita, Kansas. I have been making my living in this wonderful profession for over 40 years. My first (adjustable) camera as a kid, was an old Argus C3, yep...the brick. Boy did I think I was hot stuff owning that. But surprisingly enough, it didn't do too bad of a job on B&W. Color never really interested me until I got the D90.

I have been using the D90 for quite a while now, not professionally, but since retirement, shooting the things I enjoy shooting. I started my digital photography adventure with a D40...great little camera. Then a D200, now, since about a week ago, a new D7000. The D90 will always hold a special place in my heart. It is a fantastic camera, has a great processing engine and, if coaxed a little, will render unbelievable reds, as all Nikon digitals. In my pro digital career, I never opted for the high end, 5K and more, Nikons. To me, they did no better job than the D90, they just had more "snob appeal".

Until I developed Multiple myeloma, a bone and blood cancer, my wife and I hit the road on our Goldwing motorcycle. I had the D90 around my neck and Jeane had the D40. We made a great team. She loved Micro work with her 60mm f2.8 macro, and I loved scenics. I shot many thousand photos looking over the windshield of our bike.

I never found any situation that the D90 wouldn't handle with a little "menu tickling".

I have a PDF version of the D90 manual if anyone is interested!

Hi, I have joined the group just now. Like you all to know that i have been using a Nikon D 90 for a year now, without problems and great photos.

I am a professional photographer in New Zealand and have two D90's that I use for all my work. Great camera's and have stood up well to continuous use. If anyone is interested my web site is www.mccoshphotography.com and if you go to the gallery tab you will see samples of my work all taking with these two D90's (apart from some very early work that was taking with a D70S.

Happy shooting my fellow D90 friends.

John

 

Regards

John

Hi all, I have a Nikkor 18-105mm lense, does anyone know where the sweet spot is on the aperture, Is it f8 or f11?

Tracy:

 

Manuel, go to a good book store and they still might have manuels on the d90, it is a supplement.

 

Call Nikon to order one as well.
