Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the introduction of the COOLPIX P90, a new compact digital camera model that offers extended reach, wide-angle coverage, the intuitive ease of advanced shooting functions and outstanding performance. A new 24x Zoom-NIKKOR lens for the COOLPIX P90 covers a broad focal range of 26mm wide-angle through 624mm super-telephoto (35mm format equivalent). The clarity of these precision optics combine with 12.1 effective megapixels of sharp resolution and advanced Nikon digital image-processing to faithfully reproduce fine details and subtle tones, and to maintain image quality when taking advantage of extended light sensitivity settings as high as ISO 6400. Image sensor shift VR image stabilization adds extra reassurance of sharper and clearer results.
