Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"It's what I've always wanted no more batteries and it is just wonderful for the price and easy to use and takes wonderful pics"
_
"This camera's easy slide front turns itself on with the slightest bump and your battery is constantly dead because it was taking pictures of the inside of its case."
_
"It has a powerful flash which will unfortunately drain the battery rapidly."
_
"Only 2 things that I didn't expect when ordering it.1) Battery is weak."
_
"Or the battery level displayed on the screen is incorrect."
_
"Maybe it shaved a dollar off the price, but i'd never be comfortable tossing this battery in a bag without putting it in some sort of hard container (though i do admit, i rarely carry my batteries outside of their camera).And, alas, the bad:The picture quality is not consistent."
_
"It comes in a variety of colors and a battery thats easily rechargeable."
_
"I have a love-hate relationship with the lends cover that doubles as a power switch, as it opens easy enough to open while in my backpack, draining the battery as it travelled."
_
"For $100 I'm good with my small kids messing with this camera and will continue to see about quality settings and battery life (which is holding up pretty good so far).But you get what you pay for in this price range: an okay camera with a nice touch screen, nice color and good lens protection."

Button

Button:
"I have missed A LOT of Great pictures because the Z is like the end of the alphabet, (takes forever to get to) = a horrible delay from the time I use the top button or even the tap screen or the shutter finally clicks."
_
"Criticisms are few but would include the finicky detection on some buttons on the touch screen and the fact that 38MB of on-board memory is a total joke for the huge pictures this camera can take."
_
"More bad: after endless frustration trying to hit the buttons on the touch screen (i have pretty small fingers, and never have trouble on other touch-screen devices), i found the 'calibrate' option buried in the menu."
_
"The touch screen is responsive and the buttons big enough that they are easy to push without accidently pushing other buttons by mistake11."
_
"But for anyone with a moderate grip on the state of modern technology and fingers nimble enough to handle a few small buttons, stay clear of this camera."
_
"For people who are intimidated by all the buttons and such on modern cameras, this camera will be great."
_
"More bad: after endless frustration trying to hit the buttons on the touch screen (i have pretty small fingers, and never have trouble on other touch-screen devices), i found the 'calibrate' option buried in the menu."

Image

Image:
"The problem Im having is the images are blurry, no matter what I do, they are always blurry!"
_
"A. s Crashed and burned on this runway causing many to go down in flames of losses meaning a lot of pics just not worth trying to save to that cause (figuratively) just to the junk folder -YEPP I actually have a z-90 trash pic folder, perhaps I 'll sane it & send to fuji - someday just for grins, entitled SEE WHAT I MEAN?"
_
"It's an excellent compromise between image quality, features, size, and portability."
_
"-Charger is smaller with the plug offset to allow it to use only one receptacle on a power strip (as long as it is at the end of said strip).CONS of the Z90:-Picture quality was not as good as the Sony 80% of the time (tested in various modes and lighting conditions)."
_
"The indoor pics were just NO GOOD!"
_
"I've taken it outside for pics and seems to do great."
_
"I turned on the image stabilization and I can get 1-2 decent pictures."
_
"I went on a hike and pics came out pretty good."
_
"(all's I can say is I am TRULY Thankfull there were MANY other camers happily SHUTTER-A-BUGGIN away so between many, we got a large pool of good pics to work with - i had the same results at the Phoenix Zoo some 'z' turned out the shutter time dragged missed some rare critter shots, again Really glad my kids had 3 other cameras churnin and a burnin floating around to dump int to the batches or foldrers."
_
"The Z90 has a lot of nifty settings and takes good looking pics."

Lens

Lens:
"Zoom lens error!"
_
"There are several specs that got my attention with this camera such as: interior zoom lens (broke 2 camera from zoom lens), touch screen, slim size and it starts up pretty fast, 3 inch screen."
_
"Its a lot of fun and is one that I recommend because the lens is protected from dirt and sand! "
_
"The cover that is manually pulled over the lens to shut off the camera is fairly robust."
_
"On the other hand, it IS handy and it does a very nice job protecting the lens."
_
"So, some nice ideas with the lens cover switch and touch screen, but they're swamped by the poor images and so-so implementation of the touch screen."
_
"First, the good:I love that the lens cover slidey-thing is also the power switch."

Photo:
"Just as many cameras, taking photos indoors where there is less light, the photos are not as good,, but this little camera does am admirable job and even at night."
_
"Whilst I quite like this look for photos of myself and friends, it's certainly not good for evening time use in a non-going out setting."
_
"I forgot to buy an SD card, so I first had to take photos on the camera memory- Totally My Fault!"
_
"I missed 2 days of vacation photos I can not get back."
_
"These faults mean 75% of your average photos are going to be disappointing."
_
"The only problem with that is when you zoom in as far as it will go, the photos come out a little grainy."
_
"I always took my Z100 when I traveled because it is so small an easy to carry, but also because it takes great photos."
_
"I love that I can easily carry this with me and get great photos."
_
"The Z90 takes fabulous photos outdoors in full sunlight and passable photos indoors."
_
"i had the flash off most of the time, and if you try to take a really fast photo that way you can get some blurry photos, but in general they were pretty decent."
_
"if you're looking to take slightly fancier photos, artistic shots ect, this camera is pretty good for that."

Screen

Screen:
"The options for taking pictures is good if you want to take advantage of the touch screen ( I haven't done so yet and probably won't but it's nice to have) and take pictures using the screen."
_
"I didnt even think anything was wrong but when I look at the camera I see the screen cracked now I can't touch it which means I can't control anything."

"Its pretty good, but the bad part is that its a touch screen."

Setting

Setting:
"Whilst I quite like this look for photos of myself and friends, it's certainly not good for evening time use in a non-going out setting."
_
"the focus doesn't do so good and I have not found a setting that PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS yet - I'm not TOO crazy about the video results of this critter either Have attempted many shots of bike riding, kite flying, bubble blowing, not exactly really good results as I keep trying to 'chew threw the micro print of the manuel of the camera."
_
"Again lack of manual to explain the camera settings is frustrating.7."
_
"First -- the Auto White Balance setting wasn't quite as accurate as on my Canons."
_
"The touchscreen works well and there are not a ton of settings for the average photographer."
_
"The automatic settings work quite well and there is a reasonable amount of manual control for those who want it."
_
"The Z90 has a lot of nifty settings and takes good looking pics."
_
"It's not a 1000$ camera so you get what you pay for but honestly for someone who doesn't need complex photo settings it's perfect."
_
"For $100 I'm good with my small kids messing with this camera and will continue to see about quality settings and battery life (which is holding up pretty good so far).But you get what you pay for in this price range: an okay camera with a nice touch screen, nice color and good lens protection."

Video

Video:
"Videos are not that great (say a 3 out of 5) but overall I'd say this is a solid 4 out of 5."
_
"This is genius to me, because I hate to miss a great video opportunity while fumbling through the menus."
_
"It's a problem that you can't watch your photos or video in your TV, you need an accesorie, that's a big problem to me."
_
"the video quality is pretty good and it automatically adjusts for the lighting in the area to take the best picture."
_
"this is my 3rd Didgital camera I have owned and have used more I was really looking to this littl gem would be a continuum of the J-38 model I had from before, was a GREAT camera, simple, good reaction time and very good clean presentable pictures and video clips, both inside and out - my experience so far."
_
"I've recorded 2 videos with it, 1 in SD to test the standard quality as well as in HD (just earlier today) to test the quality of high def."
_
"The HD Video camera takes excellent quality video...even the audio is fairly good."

Zoom

Zoom:
"Zoom lens error!"
_
"The only problem with that is when you zoom in as far as it will go, the photos come out a little grainy."
_
"There are several specs that got my attention with this camera such as: interior zoom lens (broke 2 camera from zoom lens), touch screen, slim size and it starts up pretty fast, 3 inch screen."
_
"Zoom is clear and usable."
_
"So if you use this camera for videos, keep your finger clear of the zoom dial, or you'll end up with a lot of High-Def fuzzy blurs."
_
"* Zoom in out easily by touching a round button on top of the camera - easier to get to and use than the bars on other cameras that must be tapped on one end or the other to zoom in and out* Can select a mode that allows a photo to be taken by touching the screen instead of the shutter button* When turning the camera vertically to take a picture, the menu options are automatically displayed in a portrait mode so they are easy to readOverall, this camera has several unique, up-to-date features that are surprising, especially for a camera at this price point."
_
")Despite the Fuji having better specs (megapixel, touch-screen goodness, better zoom), for cameras in this range, I'd recommend the Panasonic Lumix DMC-S1 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom with 2.7-Inch LCD (Black) over this one."
_
"The photos come out crisp and in high definition and the zoom range is excellent and clear."
