  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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: It’s not perfect, but as an all rounder it’s hard to fault the Nikon P90. It’s only really the price tag that I can see being a deterrent for anyone interested.
  • Pros: Handling, articulated LCD
  • Cons: No Raw mode

  • Summary: The 12Mp Nikon Coolpix P90 upps the resolution and focal length of its predecessor, the 10Mp P80. The new model gains some interesting features, but unfortunately the basics let it down.

  • 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.
