Please forgive me if I am getting into a conversation that I obviously have no idea what is being talked about, but that picture you guys are talking about shows the properties.... or am i wrong? i am just learning now about this exif stuff, and i am constantly looking at them

this is what i am seeing

I know I am pretty late to this thread but I was wondering; Is it fairly simple to get good shots out of the P90? I have had digital cameras for years but they were very simple, almost completely automatic cameras. I am asking since I am getting ready to get a new camera very soon and want something that will take good pictures and will allow me to "blow-up" my photos and make pretty large prints, maybe a little larger than 16"X20"

Max, I found it pretty easy to use out of the box, and the longer I've had it, and the more I work with the settings - the more I love it!

Here are a few from this week's adventure...from the Maroon Bells near Aspen, CO. One of my new favorite places!

well the p90 has the auto mode just like most cameras you already used. but it is fun to play around with the settings to see what else it does. sometimes it takes me 10-20 shots to get one good one out of it, but thats just because i dont quite understand the settings yet. i just keep playing. But on auto mode, its simple and easy. look back in the thread, almost every page has photos. some not as great, but others are just beautiful.

although i am still fighting with the indoor people and things pictures. its not great for that, i will use my other camera for that, until i learn what i am doing wrong, if anything.

that's what cnet.com says. they say that the auto white balance makes indoor subjects look too yellowish, and there can be noticeable purple fringing

Hi everyone. Have been reading this for a few days and was persuaded to make the purchase. I bought the P90 two days ago and have been playing with it over the weekend. Took it to a boxing event last night and did everything wrong and got no results. Took it today to the footy and cant believe how good the shots were. Will try and post the pics.

The first shot is landscape mode, no zoom.
The second shot is landscape mode, full zoom on someone in the crowd directly opposite me holding up a sign. The grass area is about 70m wide so the zoom shot would be close to 90 meters away. Sorry to anyone who doesnt use meters for measuring. ( About the length of a football field )
Very impressive.
