I certainly do agree, Jack-

The Nikon P-90 has been excellent and the many photos in your thread aptly demonstrates that fact.

Thanks a lot Geoff K.
I have been searching on this for quite a while. I got a 8GB card free with the pack and I think its enough for a amateur.
Thanks a lot again.

Dont rely on the presets too much.
Sorry if it sounds silly, but what do you mean by WB. And how do you set it in the camera.

WB stands for White Balance. You set it in any mode other than Auto in the menu section. It is in the top menu, I beleive. The great thing about it is that, as you change the WB setting, you can look through the view finder and see the affect of it on the image.

WB is White Balance and you set that up by pushing the "menu" button, then highlight the "P" (top left) then scroll down to "White Balance" and set what you want there.

And a bit further on the WB issue:

A Manual WB is where the camera is aked to analyze the light within the photo scene and to compute a specific WB for that particular proposed photo scene. A Manual WB is especially helpful when you have mixed lighting sources.

Its not possible to move the spot meter from the center of the screen is it? I was playing earlier and trying different focus points in a scene but wasnt able to meter the scene the way I wanted. Also, if not, is there a way to set the meter and then lock it no matter where you move the spot? Thanks!

I do it by holding the shutter button half way down on what I want in focus, then moving it to where I want and then depressing shutter fully. Pretty easy. You might be able to do something in the "menu/P/AF area mode. I haven't tried that one yet.

I thought I'd add that this is where the DSLR's shine as they give you more options.
