You need to elaborate more on your problem. Not that it takes crummy pictures.
Are you using the pop-up flash or mount flash. etc.

Pop up flash never did work good. I only use mine in emergencies.
The D700, D3's don't even have a pop up flash... they use flash like I do, either the SB800 or SB900. SB600 is pretty good too.

Setting are important such as your ISO speed. How about white balance?

This is just a personal observation. The Nikon P-90 does rather well outdoors. However, indoor shots become progressively poorer in image quality as the Flash Range (the distance, measured in feet, between the camera and the subject) and the ISO setting is numerically increased.

The ISO is best kept below ISO 400 to prevent image graininess. Any action photos indoors, requiring use of the P-90's small, weak built-in flash unit, tend to blur very easily.

Try using a manual white balance/gray card. It's what I found to be the best solution in tricky indoor lighting.

Default Nikon P90

I have a Nikon P90 which I am quite happy with. My only concern is when I take photos indoors using the inbuilt flash. If the camera is on automatic mode I tend to get camera shake. I noticed that the shutter speed is set at 1/30. Could this be the reason? Has anyone experienced this problem? How have you solved it?

Reading the manual now while waiting for the battery to charge.

I would have gotten the Nikon P80 last year, but Sony had the tilting 3" LCD and that was the deal breaker. I have a huge post/threads on that camera in the sony area - 10 pages / 199 repies / 33,035 views!
I will start one here for the Nikon P90.

I was picking between the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1, (since I had the Sony H-50) and the Nikon P90. The deal breaker this time around was the PRICE! The Sony is $100 more and both cameras are about dead even, with the exception that the Nikon has a 24X zoom opposed to Sony's 20X zoom. Another deal breaker.

Here are a couple links on it so far that I've found at this point and time:
http://www.steves-digicams.com/pr/ni...09_p90_pr.html

http://www.dpreview.com/news/0902/09020303nikonp90.asp

Those were to the two that convinced me to run down to Best Buy to try the Nikon P90 out.
I spent a couple hours playing with it before deciding I had to have it.

How many have the Nikon P90 so far?

If you have any questions about this camera, post it here!
