I recently took 300 photos on a single battery. I took 297 pics on a single charge, 3/4 of them were on one day and the rest over the next week just playing with the camera and such.

Thanks a lot Shane!
That put all my worries to rest...until....until I read about this new kid on the block...Sony HX1. Lolz and that confuses me even more. It's light (like P90)..though it only scales up to SX10 IS (and hence falls short of P90) on many fronts but then it has got a CMOS sensor (much like the bloody expensive Canon SX1 but it's mighty cheaper than it), has a sweep panoramic mode (catchy!) and has this new feature called Twilight mode which works awesome under low light conditions.

Ohh man...I guess I'll wait for a while before the dust settles down (the irony is it's stupid to wait in this fast moving world where things become obsolete within months. You either buy things or keep waiting till eternity).

I've an upcoming 5 months Euro-tour this autumn...so still have a couple of months. Am in no hurry and as Jack said I gotta try them out on my own...
Now the duel is b/w P90 and Sony HX1 :?

I considered the Sony HX1 as I had a Sony H50 and really like that one. But, I didn't feel like paying $100 more for the Sony over the Nikon. The $100 difference and the longer zoom range of the Nikon (24x) swayed me that direction. (Sony's zoom is 20x)

Thanks Jack



Looking at taking shots when its overcast, dusk and dawn and indoor shots with and without flash.

Also at night with just street lights and no flash.

I've been following your review with interest.



Many Thanks

Here are some I had already. The overcast day was the Football burst ones I shot and that was pretty darn good for zooming in too.

Here is candle ones:




These are shot inside my home where the light is so-so. Partially zoomed and cropped. No flash.




I have other indoor shots, such as inside the catholic church and car show room in earlier posts if you want to check them out.

I'm new to this forum as my Nikon P90 just arrived yesterday. After looking at the camera in stores last month, I was finally able to order last week. Anyway, I'm wondering has anyone else noticed the lens assembly moves around a little within the camera body? I don't remember this when I was in the store. The camera I received seems to work perfectly but I'm concerned it may have been knocked around in shipping. Or is the movement of the lens assembly in the design?

Thanks,

:-)My came in the UPS truck today. I will find something to shot at this weekend and see if I like it as much as everyone else here.:-)

By the way, I got 14% cash back from MSN Live.com, you will need a paypal and a Windows Live acct. The discounts changes, it was 8% than to 14%, now back to 8%.

Hope you will save a few bucks like I did.

My lens moves around a lot too. I figured it was part of the image stabalization. If you move the camera, the lens kind of floats and stays put.

I'm going to start comparing SuperZoom & DSLR photos here just for fun. Different situations.
I have the Nikon P90 SuperZoom & Pentax K110D DLSR w/ 28-300mm & 18-55mm lenses.


These two were taken at the same spot and edited the exact same way in photoShop:
Nikon P90 SuperZoom


Pentax K110D DLSR w/18-55mm lens


I think you can agree that the SuperZoom can hold it's own with these kinds of shots.
