Summary: I found that writing the Nikon Coolpix P90 review to be one of the most difficult camera reviews I've ever written. The P90 has a lot of nice features, including a 24X optical zoom, a tiltable 3.0-inch LCD, an easy-to-use interface, and a light-weight design that makes it easy to use.
Pros: 24X optical zoom is great feature, Tiltable LCD is a handy feature, Handgrip is very comfortable to use, Can use live view or viewfinder to frame photos, Very easy to use - contains few buttons
Cons: Close-up focus should be better, Overall image quality should be better, LCD can be tough to see in sunlight, No possibility of using interchangeable lenses
Conclusion: The Coolpix P90 is Nikon’s latest offering in the super-zoom camera arena. It may have one of the largest zoom lenses on a fixed lens camera (24X optical zoom) but that doesn’t make it the best camera out there in the market.
Pros: Image quality is “just” acceptable outdoors; up to medium sized prints/display, Huge 24X optical zoom lens with image stabilization, Large, tilt-able 3 inch LCD with good visibility, Full manual controls, Two custom mode positions, Time lapse feature and built-in help tooltips, Fancy bells & whis...
Cons: High levels of lens distortion and edge softness; visible noise at low ISOs and poor low-light performance, No RAW mode or HD movie capabilities, Not a lot of on-screen information display in shooting/playback modes, Worst-in-class battery life by a far margin, Below average movie mode; no zoom a...
Summary: Take a very wide-angle stabilized 24X optical zoom lens and ad full-manual controls, that is the Nikon Coolpix P90. It is freedom to compose and expose to your liking, from close or far. This is a fun camera but it is not without limitations.
Pros: Very verstatile zoom from 26-624mm, Auto ISO max settable from 100 to 1600, Effective stabilization, Nicely saturated image colors at low ISO, Low optical distortion, Good shot-to-shot speed, Generally responsive, Good AF in good light, Excellent macro focus, Good LCD visibility in bright light, ...
Cons: Above average noise at all ISO settings, Poor color acuracy at ISO 400, gets worse above, Frequent overexposure, Poor automatic white-balance and slow to fix, Focus errors in low light, Strong purple fringing, Incorrect image preview, Too few zoom steps, Not exposure-priority in manual mode, Poor...
Conclusion: 12 Megapixel Nikon Coolpix P90 megazoom digital camera There is a significant amount of mega-zoom cameras available to the consumer. The Nikon Coolpix P90 must therefore really distinguish itself from the masses. Moreover; the expectations of a "real" Nikon camera are often higher than average.
Summary: Nikon’s current flagship in the digital ultrazoom class is the recently available Coolpix P90 , with a 24x optical zoom spanning the 26 to 624mm (35mm equivalent) focal range. There’s mechanical image stabilization for still captures and electronic for movies, a 12.1 megapixel sensor, Nikon’s EXPEED...
Pros: Good image quality, Good shutter response, Fast AF acquisition
Cons: Purple fringing in photos, Limited battery life, Loses some highlights
Conclusion: After checking reputable online sites for prices, we found the P90 for around $360, which on the face of it doesn’t seem too bad. But – and it’s a big but – the Sony DSC-HX1 goes for $50 more.
Pros: 24x zoom (26-624mm); 3-inch vari-angle LCD; accurate colors; extensive feature set
Cons: Relatively slow; no RAW capture; manually operated flash; poor VGA videos
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix P90 is an ultra zoom digital camera capable of capturing good shots with point-and-shoot ease. Its major attraction is its 24x optical zoom: a 26mm wide-angle for large group and wide landscape shots and a 624mm tele to bring far scenes up real close.
