Excerpt: I've had this camera for over 1 1/2 years. I use Nikon DSLR as well as several other bridge cameras by Panasonic and Fujifilm. I got it for a good price as Nikon was introducing P100 to replace this model. I wish I hadn't bought this one.
Summary: I agree with every one star comment made. I've been using Nikons since 1968(Nikon FTN) I currently use a Nikon D300 and a D200 and a range of Nikon Lens. This is ,witout doubt, the worst camera I have ever used. I bought this for my wife and I use it when I climb.
Summary: There are things about my P90 that I love. I get incredible outdoor scenery shots and can zoom in on objects I can barely see with my naked eye and get detailed clarity. For example, we were at Devil's Tower, and I zoomed in on climbers near the top. They were so high, it was easy to miss them.
Summary: I purchased this camera almost a year ago and I love it but am disappointed in the picture quality of indoor pictures. I was just wondering if anyone else was having the same problems or is it that I have my camera settings wrong for indoor use.
Summary: Do not buy this camera if you want to take pictures of an active child. Most of the pictures I take of my 4 month old are blurry because of her kicking her legs, etc. The shutter speed is just too slow.
Summary: I've used Olympus and Pentax over the years as a hobbist. The Coolpix has so many wonderful features, my pictures now look like a professional took them. I love the large view screen - you can really tell what your picture will look like.
Summary: What a great camera. I had a professional Nikon and finally sold it. I just could never quite take that perfect picture with it. With this one, you have the option to point and shoot or use it like you would a pro. Can't ask for more and the price beats the Digital SLR cameras.
Excerpt: simply horrible .ALL the disappointed owners need to get together. There seems to be something very very wrong with sensor and I mean that with as much intensity as I can place with words. Of all the cameras I ever tried this was the worst.
Summary: I had read many negative reviews of the P90 and I was a bit wary of purchasing one, but my P80 was recently stolen and I couldn't find another to replace it with so I went with the P90. I am really happy with the upgrade. The p90 takes excellent, sharp photos both indoors and out.
Summary: I need a camera that is ready in an instant. When hiking in the back country I don't have time to mess with settings when an eagle fight suddenly happens in the sky above me. This camera is a little slow for this kind of use, it requires settings and knowledge of camera attributes.
