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.
Summary: This was not my original choice in cameras. I didn't actually read the reviews on it until after I purchased, which is completely out of character for me. Anyway, some of the reviews I read put me off a bit, but I look at it like buying a car. Your never going to find every single feature you're looking for in one product. There will always be something about another brand that you like more.
Summary: I decided to buy the Nikon Coolpix P90 with 12.0 mps because I wanted a camera with better zoom, higher megapixels (upgrading from a 7.1 mp camera) and overall better quality pictures. I researched and read many reviews before purchasing. The fact that it is a Nikon was also a deciding factor. In comparison to the Nikon Coolpix P80, there's not a lot of differences.
Summary: I've had the camera for a few months now. Took the camera out on 3 occasions. Once downtown to test drive the camera. Loved the 24x zoom. Stood on the 16th floor of the hotel and took shots of downtown New Orleans. Picture quality was awesome. Second test drive was to my daughters fashion show. The outdoor shots were amazing. Indoor during the fashion show was horrible. Not sure if it was me, but I couldn't get any of the settings to give me a decent shot.
Summary: Pros: It has incredible zoom capabilities, and it takes some of it's best pictures in natural light and at night. The colors are vibrant, and vivid. The wide-angle lens is spectacular! MUCH better than Cannons and Kodak cameras. Great Manual flash selection; great macro; light weight; user friendly; reasonable video quality. High ISO and up to 45 FPS in continuous sports mode allows for bright pics of fast action shots in ice hockey rink.
Excerpt: Needing a small camera to carry with me at all choosing the p90 was an easy choice. Rather than carrying a dslr the research payed off under the extreme conditions of winter in Fairbanks Alaska and riding my bicycle while shooting (yes in the winter) it was a good choice. The intentions were to use it for test shots and after seeing the results it soon became the main camera.
Summary: I got this for a gift to a person who is not an ardent photographer. She's certainly enjoying it, particularly for it's portability and small size. The delay when hitting the shutter button to when the picture is actually taken is a bit of learning experience and a hinderance to taking action shots. The action shot setting is okay, but it does take a lot of pics that must be deleted.
Summary: I got this camera for Father's Day after I broke my Coolpix P4. I loved that little P4, but not its big restrictions. Like many other reviewers of the P90, I too am a "Nikon Guy". I have owned Nikon's film based 4004 and 8008's, and used the N90 over the years with great success. I researched the P80 and saw many unhappy and disatisfied reviews, so I held off on buying that, then I saw the P90.
Summary: Always wanted a nikon camera and this is my first .Have not checked all the features but ,as of now I find it a great camera for its catogory. The one complaint that I read before I purchased the camera was about picture quality and that it was not up to par. I find found this not to be the case with what I have seen so far in the photos I have taken ,again ,not alot of varied use to date but if it preforms to what I have seen so far ,I am more than happy with the camera
Summary: I looked at several cameras and read lots and lots of reviews before deciding on the P90. While some of the reviews talked alot about noise in the pictures I had no problems whatsoever. I did have some in the beginning but once I messed around with ajusting the settings it was great, took over 600 pictures on a recent trip to Egypt and very little if any were deleted due to noise. The zoom feature on this camera is great!
