Well the battery is at least partially charged-

Traditionally, I always take the first photo with any new camera of my husband of 52 years. So here is my first P-90 photo. It is nothing unusual. More photos to come tomorrow.

folks-

I really was not pleased with my first Nikon P-90 photo.

So later in the evening, I shot a second photo. Perhaps it was a verification. But to be truthful, I honestly wanted a better photo. This is that photo.

A word of caution, please-

Looking at the P-90 LCD, in most cases, I have been very unhappy/dissatisfied with my P-90 photos. However, when I take them to my favorite photo editing program they are actually pretty good photos.

Does that jive with what you have been experiencing? It seems a bit cock-eyed to me. However, when I process the photos, they look pretty darned good. So I have moved ahead and posted those photos with a good deal of success.

That seems a bit strange to me. But then again, that is what photo editing is a about. I will leave it at that and wish you all a very pleasant good night.

That's about right. It is nowhere as bright as the Sony H50 LCD which is the best I've seen to date. However, you can turn up the brightness of the LCD which improves it a lot.

What do you mean by Motion Detection in P90?

How Does it help?

Also it's often recommended that we use it with VR. Why So?

Yea that is probably one of the weak points of this camera. I personally think that looking through the view finder shows a better image. Myself I prefer the view finder to the LCD when taking pictures anyway even on my old diamage Z1 I would use the view finder for photos.

Motion Detection is useful for action shots of any kind. When you have it set on that, it will pick a faster shutter speed to stop action. It helps with VR as that does the same thing, stop camera shake and blurring in action photo's.

Thank you, but there's got to be something wrong with these pics. The P90 can't be the perfect camera? And I'm no photogrpher.
