    I did this 7 times and it made no difference. It doesn't matter what I turn the dial to (P, S, A, M,) or the auto focus setting, it's the same quality picture on the screen. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I contacted Nikon about the problem. Turns out there was an update that needed to be installed and that allowed the reset to work properly. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!!

    What kind of an update is it? Can you update through your computer?

It doesn't reset everything, but there is a "Reset All" command in the Setup menu. Press the MENU button, then the wrench and then "Reset All."
This reset leaves the date/time, white balance, language, and video mode alone.

Having gone a month with no further response, I assume this is no longer a problem.

You should change the ASA or ISO equivalent value--ie, change from 200-speed film to 1600-speed film. This will make the photo appear "grainier" but will show more detail. You can also manually choose slower shutter speeds--even longer than one second--but this will require that you hold the camera very steadily, probably on a tripod.

When you put the picture into your computer, you should be able to modify it with any available software. You can make the picture brighter, change the contrast, or change something called the gamma curve. ALWAYS work from a copy of the original file, so if you screw it up, you still have the original information intact!

I'd like to reset my Nikon Coolpix P90 to RESET ALL ~


I don't hunk there is anything like reset your camera. Nikon allows you to set back settings, each to a certain level, but that has nothing to do with a compete reset, like you would do on a computer or phone.
If your camera should be "reset" Nikon would not only say reset the camera, but also should explain how to do that in the instruction for how to put in a new update.

RESET ALL Button


I'm convinced you already did read the user manual. There are three things you can reset:
1. User settings. In menu mode P, you can undo all the settings you made. Page 69.
2. Reset all settings. Page 151 Menu settings, chose the wrench symbol and chose reset all. All settings will be restored to factory settings.
3. Reset file numbering. Page 154 Menu settings, chose the wrench symbol and chose reset file numbering.
In the same menu is also the view firmware version. Yours should read Coolpix P90 Ver.X.X .
The latest update of firmware for the P90 is 1.1 Great chance your camera came with that revision already. If you registered your camera with Nikon, they will inform you when a new firmware is released.
Really, there is nothing more you can reset on the camera.
So if something is wrong, it can't be helped with the reset you have in mind, because that reset does not exist.
If you want the firmware 1.1, goto Nikon USA and support. Everything you want is there.

How to adjest shutter speed of nikon p90


In the P, S, and M modes, turn the command dial on the back of the camera. In the A mode, turning the command dial changes the aperture and the camera will change the shutter speed to compensate.
In the point&shoot modes the camera will set the shutter speed on its own.

Hello, the nikon P90 is a great buy for photography enthusiasts and this make and model is in between point and shoot and DSLR when it comes to features. The lense retracts up to 24x great for taking macro shots and very user friendly. No known issues so far with this model and a great starter kit when you decide to upgrade DSLR.
