Summary: I bought this camera as a gift for my wife. It has excellent picture quality and lots of options so you can get the perfect shot. If you prefer, there are lots of preset conditions: panaramic, indoor party, night landscape, portrait, and fireworks to name a few that allow you to quickly and easily set up for the most common conditions. Very sleek and comfortable - we love it.
Summary: The camera takes great pictures in the outside daylight and inside if the lighting is good. The zoom works really well on far away objects when you are outside. The pictures are below average in low indoor lighting. The flash helps a little but not enough to make the pictures clear. The pictures also become blurry and sometimes have a yellow tinted background when taken indoors in average lighting. Overall it is a good camera. It is very easy to use and sharp looking.
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. Outside on a sunny day, pictures come out ok, but its performance indoors is dismal. On default program setting, the pictures are blurry and ISO setting above 400 is noisy and useless.
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. I zoomed in just to see what I could get. When I opened the pics in iPhoto, I could read the logos on their clothing! That's some zoom capability.
Summary: For me this camera is near perfect. It is an awesome stepping stone toward a DSLR and allows you to play with a plethora or features. I am a beginner (about 8-9 months) and had been wanting to upgrade my camera for a while but didnt want to take that big step toward an expensive DSLR. For me it was between the P90 or the P100.
Summary: This camera is the last generation before Nikon apparently changed their processing and image capture hardware. Since I couldn't find the P90 any more on the market, that's why I searched Ebay. I'm glad I did, the camera is great, does still shots like I want (the newer version is optimized for video capture) and has been a great replacement for my P80.
Summary: Due to non-delivery by the seller, I wound up with a Nikon P90 instead of the L110. As a long-time photographer, this camera is absolutely delightful. With very little self-training, it does about 99% of what I expect an SLR and a suitcase full of lenses to do. Everything but fish-eye wide-angle. The images of both still photos and videos are nothing short of a delight for their clarity, exposure and brightness in all sorts of bad lighting situations.
Excelent camera for a novice or back up for a pro.

Summary: Some times you look at something and don't see the real thing. That it what happened to me. I saw this item here and thought I was getting a DSLR camera. That is what it looks like. But I did not read the info as in depth as I should have. BUT(here's the good part) it didn't matter. A friend asked me to set up a "photo both" type of thing for his wedding and take the pictures.
Summary: I'm moving from a Kodak 6mp Point and Shoot Digital to this camera for a better quality image in low light situations in close range. I picked it because a few friends I know that do a lot of work with cameras and in photography studios use Nikon and love the brand. I love their work and decided to research the company, and fell in love with this camera.
