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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Disclaimer first: I am an amateur with a camera, not a pro. Having said that: Awesome camera for the price. Great features. Picture quality is pretty good. I got it mostly for the speed shooting so that I could take pictures of my daughter playing volleyball (and her team, too, I guess.
