USMCwife-

So, the next question probably is how can my Nikon P-90 use an external flash? Well there is an answer. You acquire and use the Digislave 3000 slave flash which do just about exactly the same thing, with one exception, the use of the P-90's built-in flash is require to trigger the DigiSlave 3000 slave flash. Here is how it looks.

jim-

Welcome to the Forum. We're glad you dropped by.

Yes, PS3 will support and allow you to edit images from the Nikon P-90 anf the Sony H-50 cameras. For most folks the primary attraction of the Nikon P-90 is the massive 24X optical zoom.

Have a great day, and a Merry Christmas.

Thanks so much Mtclimber! I'm trying to get more into photography right now. And, I love taking outdoor pictures with the P90, however, indoor pictures aren't good for me AT ALL. I'm saving up for a DSLR right now actually. I really love taking pictures! :-)


I originally bought the Sony-h50 and exchanged it for the Nikon p90.
The reason? More zoom,megapixels,and functions. However, I have
noticed some of the p90's pictures are more grainy than sonys. Sony can record HD video and Nikon's p90 records video but not in HD. I didn't really have any issues with the Sony that I can remember. Depends what you are looking for and what you are mainly going to be taking pictures of.

Camera choice is a rather complicated process. And then to further tangle things up, we sometimes change our original objectives. That has happened to me.

I do think that you will enjoy the superior performance of the a DSLR, particularly the high ISO capability. I shoot both DSLR cameras and super zooms.

Mtclimber,

I wanted to get the P90 because I thought it was a GREAT point & shoot camera, and didn't want to splurge on a DSLR yet because I wanted to learn more about them and on a budget right now...

But, I'm getting more into being an on-location photographer, and a DSLR will be better for what I intend to do. I've always loved photography and photo editing. So, I'm learning all I can now, reading books, looking online, and practice..practice...practice.... hoping to create a great business in the process. So thats my background & what I like to do :-)

I do love the zoom on the p90 though!! :-)

Like Concert Pianists, we photographers have to practice as well, all the time, to improve our skills. Therefore, I can certainly relate to your post. I have been at this photography game for multiple decades, and I continue to learn all the time.

As the old adage relates: It is practice that makes perfect.

Have a great day and a Merry Christmas.

Wow! I has been a while since I've been on here. This post I started is still going strong. As I said a few months ago, I had gave my P90 to my Uncle as I made the jump to DSLR's.

If I had to use or pick a superzoom again, I'd still pick the Nikon P90. That is a sweet camera.

I have the next best right now, two Nikon D5000, one with the Sigma 50-500mm & one with the Sigma 18-250mm. I may yet buy another P90 superzoom when I get my income tax return next month.

Jack,

Did you have any problems of using the P90 indoors without flash?
I get a lot of grainy pictures!

I'm saving up for a Nikon D90, is there a huge difference between the
Nikon5000 and d90?

Hope to hear from you,

Merry Christmas!

Not that I recall. It's been 5 months since I've had mine. I think I adjusted the white balance.

I had to go to DSLR as I like shooting fast birds such as hummingbirds etc and the superzooms can't match the DSLR speed & focusing for that. The superzooms does well for all other shots and boy can it reach out there. If you check my photos posted before August, you can see how I did with it.

Merry Christmas to all here.
None of that "happy holidays" from me!

Hi Ashwin,

An hour to spare at work so, although this is an old thread, I thought I'd play around with your photos to see what I could get out of them (spent around 15 mins on each of these two).

This was your original pigeon :



This was Paulo's post processed version which you can see has been heavily sharpened and the contrast brought way up :



I have taken a different approach by trying to preserve as much detail as possible but at a cost (neither is right or wrong - just a matter of preference) :



As regards the photo of you against the bay this is the original :



and again I had to try to resist the urge to over-sharpen !



The PP was done in Lightroom 3 (beta). You can easily download it (the beta version is free at the moment) and just play around with the program and a few photos until you find just what you want. If you want something with not so much of a steep learning curve then Lightbox is freeware and does a really good job quickly and easily. Good luck !
