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.
Excerpt: I just bought this camera and was surprised when I received it. It resembles a DSRL, but it is also a lot more compact and easy to use. It has 12.1 mp, resulting in awesome quality pictures. A 24x zoom, with Vibration Reduction that allows to get great pictures from a distance. Reading the manual is obviously a requisite, since this camera has many settings that can be adjusted depending on the type of picture desired. Great landscape pictures, and portraits as well.
This takes wonderful photographs and is easy to use.

Excerpt: I LOVE THIS CAMERA WITH MY WHOLE HEART!!!! It is a fantastic camera. I am not the best of photographers yet but, this is a great tool for me to work up the ladder. It is a sturdy camera,it's lens is great, the zoom is awesome, the pictures are wonderful, and you do not have to be a genius to use it. If you aren't into the whole manual focus thing then you don't have to put it on that setting.
Excerpt: We bought this camera 18 months ago and absolutely love it! We have 3 kids under 8 so we take lots of pictures of children and family. The zoom is great - allowing us to take close up pictures of the kids even when they are way back in the yard. I have gotten some great face shots when they didn't know I was taking pictures because I am able to be so far away.
Excerpt: Having a small pocket size Pentax and a full size SLR, I needed something that took good pictures, had a great zoom, versatile, and could be snuck into concerts and shows. I waited for the P-90 having looked at the Canon IS and the Nikon P-80. The P90 was everything I was looking for. I was even able to put it in my shorts at Riverbend in Cincinnati because they would only let shirt pocket size cameras in which is BS, because some of these smaller cameras have 12x...
Nikon Coolpix P90 is a great camera even for beginners!

Excerpt: We purchased this camera in February and have not regretted it! It takes wonderful pictures and even video which is great with our son's sports! It even tells you (on the screen) if someone blinks so that you can retake the picture! We are still learning how to use all of the features but for general pictures there is a setting so you don't mess it up. Also there is a panorama setting so that you can take a series of pictures to put together (haven't used it yet).
Excerpt: I love my Nikon Coolpix S90!!!! I have always wanted to try and take some really nice pictures but didnt want the agravation and expense that comes with the high dollar cameras. I did some research and found the Nikon Coolpix S90.The cost was a little more then i origanally wanted but once i saw all of the features of the S90 i had to have it. One of the best features is the adjustable screen, I have used it several times.
Excerpt: Nikon P90 Coolpix camera is a good camera, looks like a professional photographers camera, has tons of features, has great zoom lens, but has a horrible battery life! Don't expect to take this camera out for the day and not run out of juice on the battery. It doesnt last long at all. If you choose to use the video camera feature on this digital camera, the battery dies even faster.
Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix S90 digital camera is such a great camera for someone who wants their camera to do more than the regular point-and-shoot. It is in between the point-and-shoot and the DSLR type cameras. You have the options to change many of the settings such as aperture and shutter speed. However, if you do not know how to use those settings, you can just use the regular 'auto' setting.
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.
