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.
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: 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.
Summary: I am an amateur photographer. I just wanted a good point and shoot with specific features. The most important feature I wanted was a great zoom. The 24x is awesome. Clear, crisp shots from soooo far away. My second must have feature was a large LCD screen.
Summary: This is the second P90 I bought, because my wife want this camera too. It's very easy to use and for me and my wife the picture quality is good enough, though I know the reviews from people complaining about the picture quality.
Very good Camera overall but with some limitations.

Summary: I have had many cameras and use a pro SLR for most of my photography, I needed some thing to carry around when I dont want to haul the SLR/lenses. This camera is not the smallest and does not easily fit in a small bag, definitely not a pocket.
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.
Excerpt: I love this camera. I am a grandmother who loves to scrap, and create art from my photos. I am also a nature lover who loves animal and bird photos. I find this camera is perfect for me. It is light and very easy to use.
