Nikon has a new 24x ultra-zoom digital camera, the Coolpix P90, with an equivalent zoom of 26-624mm. That means wide-angle capabilities for a camera that also shoots super telephoto.
It packs 12.1 megapixels and the 3-inch LCD screen ainâ€™t at all bad. High-speed continuous shooting up to 45 shots at 15 fps means the P90 is an ideal camera for sports photography. It can even record images before youâ€™ve pressed the button.
The camera offers many other Nikon-quality features such as four Anti-blur technologies, Auto Scene and Face Priority AF, recognizing up to 12 faces in the frame. It also includes the latest features, such as Smile Mode and Blink Warning, Nikonâ€™s proprietary D-Lighting for optimizing contrast and Quick Retouch.
The camera can also record movies, including time-lapse movies and its 3-inch vari-angle LCD screen makes taking pictures easy even in challenging situations.
The Nikon Coolpix P90 is available starting March 13, 2009 for $400.
