after 14 years coolpix 990 still rocks

vsc632, Ebay

  • Summary: I love this camera. Yes it is only 3.3mp, old, somewhat slow, and heavy. I Just recently bought it at eBay for only $22 in great shape. And it works as well as my first 990 that I bought for $900 when it came out in 2000. It broke about 4 years ago and I missed it since. I still have every possible accessory for 990 and finally I decided to get it from eBay. What I was missing the most was incredibly sharp and crispy macro shots.

  • Summary: Great back up camera for web photo's. Excellent close up pictures. Purchased for almost nothing. Battery door is prone to be broken but can be closed by piece of flat metal and 1/4" screw. Cheap fix but effective. Very small view screen makes it hard to see. Small MP.

Best camera for close-ups ever! Non moving lens zoom is a great feature

  • Summary: This is THE camera of choice for laboratory users. Especially if you need close up shots like of coins or through a microscope 1. it lets in MUCH more light than many of the newer smaller cameras-- important for high magnification shots, 2. Also very important: the Lens DOES NOT MOVE When you zoom it; so you can keep every thing in position or attach it ti a microscope. 3.

1st class!

  • Summary: Boasted as first reasonably priced digital camera to take 100ASA equivalent images(3.1 megapixel). This one is 3.3, so just a little finer than 100ASA. Hybrid from the fact of using a totally mechanical lens/leaves, superb glass ground lens married to a digital processor, W/auto focus. I bought mine new for around 1,000$ way back when. Have never had a problem(knock on wood). Not even the battery door some complain about.

Great camera from back in the day...

nanettestore, Ebay
20 March 2011
  • Summary: If it were 6 years ago I would rate this as excellent as it was way ahead of it's time when 3 megapixel was the current, "Hot thing" but no we are in the 12 to 14 range so the 990 falls into a cross between a usable digital camera and a modern collectable. One dawns the corner of my shelf along side the Polaroid PDC-3000 as things that I enjoy looking at but see very little use.

for IR photos its great

cyber115, Ebay

  • Summary: All I needed was a cheap way to get into digital IR photography and the Nikon Coolpix 990 was it. It uses AA batteries and CF cards so it's easy to refill. Plus it has a swivel in the middle. So I can point it anywhere.

Awesome with only one issue

shop4meplz, Ebay

  • Summary: I love this camera. I would have rated it excellent, except the battery door, after use, will not stay closed. I loved this camera because of ease of use, very good pics, and great macro closeups (which I use mostly), and the size is just right, not to big or small. I loved it so much I bought a newer model with 10 Megapixels thinking I would get much better pics. Not so, did not look better, but worse, the macro close ups were terrible, and hard to take.
