Nikon COOLPIX P90 12.1 MP Digital Camera - Black

The Coolpix P90 is a compact digital camera model that offers extended reach, wide-angle coverage, the intuitive ease of advanced shooting functions and outstanding performance. Incorporating the precision optics of a NIKKOR lens and the image quality benefits of Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image-processing concept, the Coolpix P90 brings greater versatility and fun to the art of capturing precious moments.A 24x Zoom-NIKKOR lens for the Coolpix P90 covers a broad focal range of 26mm wide-angle through 624mm super-telephoto (35mm format equivalent). The clarity of these precision optics combine with 12.1 effective megapixels of sharp resolution and advanced Nikon digital image-processing to faithfully reproduce fine details and subtle tones, and to maintain image quality when taking advantage of extended light sensitivity settings as high as ISO 6400. Image sensor shift VR image stabilization adds extra reassurance of sharper and clearer results.Further extending its potential as a versatile photographic tool, the Coolpix P90 features a 3-inch high-resolution vari-angle LCD with anti-reflection coating that can be tilted as much as 90 degrees upward or 45 degrees downward. This enables photographers to shoot from higher angles or from the hip, and to thereby make best use of the superior reach and range of the 24x zoom lens.
