"Great camera, super photos, a bit annoying flash" - By sailor (seattle)
So I bought this camera 6 months ago and have used it steadily ever since. I've been a photographer for over 40 years and its a good quality device. There have been no failures and I've had relatively little trouble learning to use it on the fly. (Although I admit I used the instruction manual once!) I've used the camera in below zero conditions in the snow, backpacking, in low light, in the rain as well as in bright sunlight. It performs excellently in all conditions, giving good crisp and clear photos. Of course, this means that you've actually taken the time to compose the shot ahead of time. No camera will compensate for poor set up. It has never froze, or given me an error message. As with any new camera there are some things you have to learn to do differently. I've ... full review
Love this camera right out of the box. It is replacing a Coolpix S8000 (the lens got scratched) which takes amazing pictures. The S9500 does everything the 8000 did and has a few new features that just make it so much fun! If you are used to a Nikon you will find it very easy to navigate. As a point and shoot camera it is a wonderful compliment to a DSLR (I shoot with a D300s). Sometimes you just want to travel light with a small camera that still allows you some control and flexibility. This camera also has a terrific wide angle to zoom lens which allows you to get the shot where ever you go. I haven't used the wifi feature yet but did want to share my enthusiasm for this camera!

"The best camera I've ever own" - By Optional (DC)
I usually don't write review. But I'm writing this now because of the unfair reviews due to user errors, not the camera. I was born in a photography family that has been in the business since the 60s. I do know how to work a camera, I know what a correct setting is for different light situations. This is the BEST camera in its category I have ever own, and I've own a lot: Canon, Sony, Pentax, Panasonic, Nikon all in the same category and price range (at the time of its release). Although it's classified as "point & shoot", there are pre-set settings that you have to know when to use them and when NOT to use them. So this is an advance point & shoot camera which requires user's knowledge to fully leverage its features. If you are NOT generally savvy with electronics & ... full review

"Pleased with the Nikon P90" - By Carol Lugg (Colorado Springs, CO USA)
I had decided to upgrade from the Canon S5 IS, because I really like a point and shoot camera with LOTS of zoom! I have always been a Canon person. My first choice the Canon SX1, but it was going to be expensive, and no one seemed to know the actual release date, so I decided against it. Then, there was the Canon SX10, but it didn't seem like much of a jump from the S5. I not only wanted lots of zoom, I also wanted to be able to take continuous shots rapidly. The S5 IS is really slow in this respect. This was to be my Mother's Day present, and I wanted to make sure I got just what I wanted!
After doing a LOT of research, I began to think the Nikon P90 might be a good choice for me. I had looked at ... full review
If you want to move up from a pocket size point and shoot camera to one with a 15X zoom, this is a good choice. The picture quality equals many point and shoot cameras, and the 15X zoom and anti-shake features allow you a great deal more flexibilty. Without casting any negativity on reviewers who gave unfavorable ratings, I can only assume that they didn't set the camera on 'auto mode' which does permit you to set the flash mode, and allows some white balance compensation. You can also pick Nikon's preset camera modes, but 'auto mode' works best. Does the picture quality equal a digital slr camera? Of course not. Are the quality of pictures equal to my Canon SD1000 point and shoot? Yes. Is it priced like a 15X zoom digital slr? No.
The camera's viewfinder/playback screen is one of the ... full review
Great travel camera, easy to pack with you on trips for those spur of the moment shots. No need for a bulky case, fits in pocket or purse. Good quality pictures for scenic shots and concerts. Pictures may get a little grainy on full zoom, but overall, worth the cost.
