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-megapixel 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.
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.
