The Nikon Coolpix P90 was launched by Nikon on February 3, 2009 as an improved version of the Nikon Coolpix P80. It is a 12-mega pixel CCD digital camera with a fixed 24× Zoom Nikkor ED glass lens giving more than twelve times image magnification fully extended. An in-camera feature compensates for lens pincushion- and barrel distortion in the image. The VR in this case refers to the vibration reduction image sensor shift system. The camera has a three-inch (76 mm) LCD display that may be folded 45 degrees downward and 90 degrees upward to facilitate shooting above-the-head or low-to-the ground images as well as traditional waist-level and eye-level viewing. The electronic eyelevel viewfinder has the same resolution as the LCD display. Switching between these alternatives is by simply depressing the DISP button next to the viewfinder.[1][2]

Most of the features otherwise are carried over from the P80 model.

A year later in March 2010, the camera was replaced by the P100 model. The significant improvement is the use of a CMOS image sensor with claimed better light sensitivity and less noise, but with 10M pixel resolution. The zoom range is increased slightly to 26X.[3]
