I was told by a good buddy of my, and he already did this a few times and got the cash back thru his paypal acct.
Here are a couple of links, you can buy things off Ebay also, just make sure it has the GOLD $ sign, and it needs to be Buy It Now.

http://search.live.com/cashback

http://search.live.com/products/page...px?FORM=CBFA01

To get cash back in Ebay, you need to use www.live.com to search for something popular, like iphone for example, you will go to this page and see the Gold $ sign next to iphone and www.ebay.com, which will tell you about the rebate %

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,

I finally had a chance to get down the mountain to compare "lens movement". The display camera felt quite rigid (no side-to-side movement of the lens). I started the exchange process today. It will be interesting to see if the next one (arriving on the 5th) will be with or without the "lens movement". Either way, we are headed for the Yellowstone ecosystem and can't wait to let the P90 rip!

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.
The K110D image seems to have a slight golden tone compared to the P90. Which would you say is more accurate?

This has been brought up a few times. Since I'm hard of hearing, I don't hear anything... but I'm sure it has something to do with the Anti-shake / image stabilization. If you are cleaning the lens (and you should from time to time), you will notice that the inner barrel moves slightly. I would imagine it is fairly fragile so be careful and don't bang it around.

My Subaru along Ruston drive w/Tacoma & Mt Rainier as a backdrop shot with Nikon P90


Now the same scene without the Subaru, shot with the Nikon P90


Now from the same spot... zooming in

Hi Jack,

I have been reading your comments on this Forum about Nikon P90 quite closely. The information seems to be just great and the pics are as good as they can be. And that photo of yours with a bird on the shoulder is just amazing.
I too have bought a P90 just now and wanted to ask you some questions about it.

Which are the best modes to get max shots as I heard max of 200 shot are available on a single charge? Also what is the max memory that the camera supports as there is no mention about this topic anywhere in the specs?

I am finding the operation a slight complex as I haven't been acquainted with super zooms for long. Where can I get a tutorial that doesn't use excess of those technical words?

I know that's to many questions in the first ever mail I am sending you but I hope you answer them as it wont be time consuming for a pro like you.

Thanking You In Anticipation.

Your Admirer,
Nitish,India

Nitish,

I've been getting 250-300 shots per charge.

Also what is the max memory that the camera supports as there is no mention about this topic anywhere in the specs?
I don't really know the max, but i know it takes up to at least 8GBs.

I am finding the operation a slight complex as I haven't been acquainted with super zooms for long. Where can I get a tutorial that doesn't use excess of those technical words?
Just get familiar with the manual, follow this forum on it and then get out and use it. Experiment. That is the best way.

You have a great camera... enjoy using it.

Cheers,
Jack
