Thanks, Jack. I'm finding that this is going to be a great "carry-around". I may regret purchasing an Oly E-410! heheheh maybe :-)

I sold my Olympus E-510 outfit to get the Nikon P90.... with no regrets!

I got real tired of packing all the gear around and losing shots because I had to change the lens etc.

I sold an Oly SP570UZ. The E-410 will be my welded-to-a-tripod-pointed-at-the-wildlife camera since it has no IS. :G

I hear ya with being a pack mule! :-) That's one of the big things that has deterred me from getting a dSLR the past couple of years. However, I got an exceptional price off Craiglist and the P-90 is the ideal carry-around camera for me. And, if I don't like/use the E-410, I *know* can sell it at a profit.

Jack,

Is there a way to review what settings were used for a photo after it was taken?

Shane
Yeah, if nothing changes see what the display says too. Later you can right click then click properties to see the settings.

BTW, If that is your fiance, she is a gorgeous lady.
I really like that lawn shot of the blooms and White House too.

It was a sunny day here again, so I took some pics of our new forester.
That is the fiance. Thanks for the compliments. She cooks too! Sorry, no sisters

Hi Jack-

You have made an excellent beginning. Good Work! I own the Nikon P-80, and frankly i have not been blown away by the p-80. The camera does well outside and with the flash, but it is a real slug at increased ISO settings above ISO 400.

Perhaps the P-90 is somewhat better. I am still having fun with the Sony H-50 and Panasonic FZ-28.

Good to hear from you Sarah! Back home from the cruises?
How many cameras you have anyway? LOL

I think you have to have a DSLR before you see good resolutions past 400 ISO.
Most of these SuperZooms are NOT very good past 400 ISO.

GJToth, how far away is that bird feeder from where you are taking the pictures? I cant seem to get that close even with the zoom all the way. (I have digital zoom off)

It's about 20-22' away. I don't use digital zoom either... have it turned off.

Hi Jack-

As you know, I am indeed a Digital Camera Instructor, so I have lots of cameras. Your P-90 photos are impressive. Just like the P-80, it looks like the P-90 does well at low ISO settings. Where the rubber meets the road is when you increase the ISO, particularly above ISO 400.

Yes, I also have 6 DSLR's as well as the digicams, as I also teach DSLR seminars. But, to tell the truth, Jack, I love super zoom cameras. So, I will follow this Nikon P-90 thread, at least for awhile. We head for a cruise ship in South America on the 10th.
