the remote shutter release lets you trigger the camera without hitting the shutter button, good for long exposure shots. If you get the IR remote shutter release, it is good for self portraits.

The circular polarizer is good for bring out the blue in the sky. Most effective if you aim the camera perpendicular to the sun. Only use it on a sunny day.

Since the D90 has HD and a 4fsp burst rate, the higher class card will allow you to take more photo before shutter lag slows down the camera.

Hot shoe level is just a camera level that makes leveling a camera on a tripod easier.

Best way to dust of a lens or sensor is a rocket blower. You do not want to use compress air on a sensor.

beside the flash and not including the bag and circular polarizer. The rest of the items are pretty inexpensive on ebay. Just look up the options on the nikon website, and do a search of that model number and you will find most of them on ebay. Just couple of dollars.

The hot shoe level work on any camera that you can add a flash to.

Just do not get a sdhc card from ebay, way to many fake memory cards there.

Why do you want a filter?

I am from the school, that you do not need to put one on, it may degrade the image. I would make sure to put a lens hood for added protection. I think they sell the filter protector just to make money, they really do nothing for the shot. As as mention it will degrade image.

But if you get a filter protector, get a good one.

In general, protecting a lens is a good idea, but very often filters hurt image quality in one way or another. A protection filter can create vignetting in wide angle lenses, and can degrade image quality because of less than perfect optics and even flare.

But if you've got a good lens, protecting it with a good filter is a good idea.
