pics with my Nikon p90

Recommended Posts

I think it would be close.  Canon and Nikon are fairly similar.  However, if you are already familiar with one, the learning curve is a little less.

 

Priced low to high, here are a few used cameras that look somewhat interesting (with at least a 20x optical zoom).

Lol wow thanks! Now I have 100 choices. Safe to say most of them likely have all the settings I could want? That's what was cool about the p90 was once I figured it out there was enough adjustments that I didn't need to edit pics after words.

There are a few nice cameras in that list (some better than others).  I haven't gone through the specs on all of them, but most should be suitable.  The two that you compared seem like good choices.  I went to the used sites to see if there was something cheaper.  While there are some decent choices, I don't think you'd feel bad about either a new Nikon or Canon like you asked about.

Ended up buying a Nikon P600. Excited to get back into taking reef pics. Thanks again for the help!
