24x zoom that delivers both
wider and longer reach
3-inch vari-angle LCD adds
greater framing freedom
The COOLPIX P90 offers the unbeatable
compositional freedom of a quality 24x
Zoom-NIKKOR ED lens that features outstanding
focal range from 26mm wide-angle to 624mm
super-telephoto shooting. And it even covers
macro shooting ability from as close as
0.4 inches (1cm) from your subject.
Given the versatile reach and range of the
24x zoom lens, you’re bound to find yourself
wanting to shoot from the hip, or from a higher
angle. That’s why, in addition to its electronic
viewfinder, the COOLPIX P90 features a huge,
bright 3-inch high-resolution vari-angle LCD
with anti-reflection coating. The LCD can be
tilted upward as much as 90 degrees, or
45 degrees downward.

as 45 consecutive pictures2 at 15 fps to stay
ahead of most any action you wish to capture.
Furthermore, the Pre-shooting Cache option
enables you to record up to 10 frames
just before releasing the shutter.
ISO 6400 capability 1
Light sensitivity range up to ISO 6400 creates new
opportunities to take sharper, more natural-looking
photos in lower light conditions, or when shooting
fast-moving subjects.

scene and selects from one of six
scene modes for best results.
