Nikon Coolpix S90 and P90

mystique777, Viewpoints

  • 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.

The Good & The Bad

Marilynn Bachorik, Amazon
24 February 2011
  • 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.

"Overall great features but disappointing image quality."

Tall Timbers, CNET
30 July 2010
  • Pros: Of course the 24x optical zoom, but great wide angle as well. Vibration reduction, multiple shooting modes, fits the hand well, powerful built-in flash, tilting display, very fast Nikkor ED lens.
  • Cons: Mediocre photo quality, lousy lens cap, no hot shoe or aux flash capability, can't zoom in movie mode, can't use filters or lens hood, the LCD display is not sharp, can't turn on in playback mode.

Somewhat Disappointed

John C. Smith "The Bostonian", Amazon
16 September 2009
  • Summary: Many of the things already stated (both good, bad, and in between) are there for your review. I wish I had waited longer to purchase this camera and had the insight of the earlier reviews. To the other reviewers' points, I waited months before sharing my opinion so that I tested it vigorously. I READ the instruction manual several times to improve my user experience which did help to a certain extent. In many ways it is a sound performer, but please know the limitations.

Tasses, CNET

  • Pros: Great outdoor and macro photos. Like the pre-set scene selector. Food photos good.
  • Cons: Yellow indoor shots, shaky blur 50% of the time, battery life & type should be better.

User Review

TxSlade, DP Review

  • Excerpt: This is my honest experience with Nikon P90: I am an artist (painter) and needed a high mega pixel camera to photograph my paintings for reproduction. I researched for 3 months to make sure which camera I wanted. I came to the conclusion that the Nikon P90 had every single feature I wanted and within the price range I had. I read some bad reviews but I figured it couldn’t be that bad and I would give it a shot. I received this camera for my birthday last week.

"poor telephoto quality"

verygoooy, CNET
14 July 2009
  • Pros: If you are not using the zoom as in indoors and/or close-up the camera does a very nice job. Nice balance. Very user friendly. Picture quality is ok. Nothing that can't be fixed with photo editing software.
  • Cons: The only way to use the telephoto/zoom is on a tripod. Myself and 3 others all tried to take hand held telephoto shots and could not hold the camera still enough to get any quality shots. We were shooting wildlife. On tripod shots were ok.

Nikon Coolpix P90 review

DP Review
28 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Boy, you look at the specs of the Nikon P90 and it looks perfect. 24x zoom (26-624 mm), 12 MPixels, lots of controls, great ergonomics, about 16 ounces.
  • Pros: Boy, you look at the specs of the Nikon P90 and it looks perfect. 24x zoom (26-624 mm), 12 MPixels, lots of controls, great ergonomics, about 16 ounces.
  • Cons: We bought one and took a few pictures of flowers in our garden. All of the pictures were overexposed and the color rendering was not true to life.
