|Get ready to snap beautiful photos and create enduring memories with the Nikon 35mm F90X/N90S film camera. Equipped with an AF sensor and a cyan-lit LCD, this classic takes high-quality photos even in dim lighting. The camera features a built-in shutter to block excessive light from the viewfinder, thereby protecting your photos from overexposure. Noted for its remarkable autofocus speed and high-speed motor drives, this 35 mm SLR camera is well-suited for personal and professional photography endeavors. Exploit a myriad of choice photo-capture settings, such as portrait and landscape, to embellish your photos. The camera is enhanced with an excellent mirror box, an improved viewfinder, and a sturdier frame. Although the Nikon N90S is a design marvel, you do not have to be tech savvy to adjust its settings; just use the user-friendly Sharp Wizard Organizer to customize it.Compared to similar film cameras, the Nikon N90s/F90X has all the features you need. It has a rapid motor driver, matrix metering, fast autofocus, and top flash capabilities. With the matrix metering, you can set it for a center-weighted or spot exposure reading. All you need to do is add a lens to this body. If you already own Nikon MF lenses, they are used with the N90s in Manual and Aperture Priority modes. You don’t lose the autofocus functions or the camera’s exposure metering features. In the Manual mode, you have full control of shutter speeds and, of course, have the capability for manual focus. If you need to purchase lenses, Nikon’s AF “D” lenses allow you to use the N90 to its maximum capabilities. These lenses send information to the N90's microcomputer for the 3D Matrix Metering. Be sure you are using the AF “D” lens by looking for the letter “D” which will be after the aperture information.This Nikon F90x also has fantastic flash capabilities. Use the inexpensive SB-23 set to Program mode and know you get excellent results. Additionally, the camera is great at fill-in flash when shooting outdoors for exposure compensation. Slow-sync the flash to keep those indoor background details sharp. For natural looking blurs, use the rear-curtain flash. The Nikon N90s is synchronized with the flash up to 1/250 shutter speed, giving you lots of options even when using Manual mode. The autofocus tracks subjects even if they are moving away or towards you. The feature also monitors the speed of your subject and estimates where your subject actually is when you fire the shutter. In tracking mode, you can fire off a bunch of frames and be confident that they are razor-sharp. You have the option of setting the Nikon N90s for two or four frames per second. If there is a moving subject, set the camera to shoot, after pressing the shutter release, only when the subject is in focus.This SLR device takes 4 standard AA alkaline-manganese, NiCd, or high-performance manganese batteries. The camera has a battery strength checker, so you always know when it is time to swap them out.|

Good image quality
Not up to the latest technology, but hard to pass up at current prices!
Nikon's film camera technology reached its peak with the F100, N80/F80 and of course the F5 and F6. The N90s/F90x isn't quite up to the level of those cameras but it still has a lot to offer the serious photographer who wants to shoot film, especially at the prices they go for these days! If you want the latest whizbang, the N80/F80 or the F100 are the way to go for "prosumer" gear, but you'll pay more. In some ways, you'll get less, too. The build quality of the F90/N90 series is definitely higher than the newer models -- less plastic in critical places (like the rewind fork) make it clear that these cameras were made for serious work. They've got the heft and feel of the pro F4 and F5, while the N80/F80 feels like a D90 (which it resembles in many ways.) The D90 is a fine camera, it just doesn't feel as solid as I'd like. The F90s/N90s definitely feels solid. The F90/N90 series also had problems with the rubber coating, especially on the film door. It quickly got gummy and sticky, or just started to peel off. I've found the best solution is to remove the door, then remove the rubber coating with a paper towel soaked in rubbing alcohol. It takes a few minutes, but if you don't mind the feel of plastic (as opposed to "rubberized" plastic) it's a permanent solution. On the "pro" side, these are reliable, use standard AA batteries, work with a wide assortment of Nikon lenses, support most pre-iTTL strobes and have a very good user interface. On the "con" side, they are heavier than the later "prosumer" models from Nikon, noisy (but accurate and surprisingly quick) autofocus, and the viewfinder isn't quite as bright as, say, an F4 or F5. I'll take one of these where I wouldn't necessarily want to take my F5, and it'll do pretty much everything I need it to do under most circumstances. Yes, it only has a single AF zone, but I can live with that (and often prefer it.) It has matrix, center-weighted and spot metering, also surprisingly accurate, and easy access to exposure compensation. In fact, most of the useful controls are right where you'd want them to be. Definitely consider this for a backup or "dangerous assignment" body if you have an F4/5/6. I find it good enough to be my regular "walking around" camera. It's that good.
A great 1990s pro film SLR
This camera has the pro-level build quality associated with Nikon's F series, but is not so big or heavy. Its motor drive is suitably fast, but it doesn't matter, as no one uses film for fast sports any more. The ergonomics are better than the F4's for small or medium sized hands. The camera is rubber-wrapped metal alloy; it is much more solid than lesser cameras, such as the N65, N80, etc. It doesn't have a physical control for every feature, like the F4 and previous pro cameras, but the menu system is only one layer deep: For example, to change the mode, press hold down the MODE button with the left hand, then turn the click dial with the right hand while watching the LCD. This allows the N90s' body to be clean and uncluttered due to the lack of switches, but yet to not have a complex menu system at the same time. I like shooting with my manually-wound, manually-focused cameras, but I'm amazed at how much quicker I can make a nice photo with this one. If you like 35 mm film, but don't want to have the family waiting for you when you're out with them, this is a fine choice.

I have never owned a film Nikon AF camera. My digital is a D40 and my film cameras are the mecahnical and manual focus Nikkormat FT, FT2 and FM. I love my mechanical and manual focus cameras.I heard that N90s is a good camera, and decided to own one AF. It would not mount mine non AI lenses as the spec said, but I would not mind since i have a couple of AI lenses. I tested the N90S with the 50mm f/1.8 AF, 18-55mm AF-S D, 55-200mm AF-S VR and the image came out reasonably good. I am satisfied with what I purchased for that price USD51. Drop it once from my bag, and there was a crack at the edge but still works wonderful. The AF on film is a good backup if I want to travel or on the move and want to capture images on film without manual focusing on FM or use the digital D40. It serves its purpose, but personal preference is still the old manual FM and FT. The images produced by these old film cameras are much nicer, i do not know why, can't compare with my FT2. Pro: AF on film, fast AF, Cons: Cannot accept my old non AI lens, not as well bult as Nikkormat or FM. It is plastic.Image produced not as good as Nikkormats or FM.
A piece of photography history
Actually, it is a Kodak NC2000e. It was part of the first digital cameras in the market (1994). The NC abbreviation is often referred to as News Camera. Kodak collaborated with the Associated Press to create a digital SLR that met the needs of photojournalists. Based on a Nikon N90 body, the 1.3-megapixel camera had removable memory cards and enough sensitivity (ISO 1600!) to shoot in available light. The Vancouver Sun became the world’s first newspaper to convert to all-digital photography with theses cameras. Original price: $17,950, but discounted to $16,950 for AP members.

Reached within the time limit. Packing for 5+. A concomitant I would say not 5 but 4+. There are batteries inside, the filter on the lens is very cool. Technically everything works. The back cover is not tested. Lens and filter were in the sand or dust, had to be cleaned. And somehow he came with on! Funny. In any case, all good, foto cool.
