I'll hazard a guess that your problem is shaky, blurry shots. My first advice is to be sure to use the half press of the shutter button to lock focus and eliminate lag, (the fraction of a second delay between the time you press the button and the shot is taken).
Other than that I would set the top dial on sports mode (the running man icon) and when you shoot hold the shutter button all the way down (after you lock focus) for several seconds each time you shoot, this will fire the camera in continuous mode and give you a better chance of a sharp pic.

You can also set the top dial to "S", shutter priority mode and use the thumb wheel to dial in the fastest shutter speed available.

Good luck.

Hi all,

Ive done some experimenting over the past few weeks and have a couple of simple tips that may help some people. I cant stress the importance of using the flash with this camera. Today I took some portrait shots using a few different modes in what I would describe as being really good light. Sun shining etc etc. I found the face being a little underexposed whilst the rest of the background were perfect. I turned the flash on, took the same shot, and its perfect. Even though there was plenty of light, the flash made all the difference. Also tried a couple of night landscape shots. Put the camera on a tripod, and it worked perfect. Without the tripod, it was pretty terrible. Most of this was based on the P mode. Slowly getting there, and starting to like the camera more and more as I learn how to use it.

Default Newbie & quite happy w/ P90

Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum and it's because of this particular thread post that I finally decided to get a P90 myself.

First, a disclaimer. I'm a newbie and someone who, until now, didn't give a damn about cameras as long as it shoots pictures. So probably I'm someone who ranks even below that of an amateur.

I'm from Cebu, part of the Visayan group of islands in central Philippines. The weather as you can see is pretty warm and inviting although a strong typhoon is raging in the north (Manila & Luzon) when these shots were taken today (Oct. 31, 2009)

The following are shots I made using only all default or auto (except for the zoom features).
