Our Head-to-Head features as of late have been pretty evenly matched. Unfortunately, this one isn't. Our advantages weigh heavily in the Coolpix P100's favor. Nikon's addition of the venerable 10.3 megapixel BSI CMOS chip puts it on par with the best cameras in its class.
High speed shooting, a variety of video options, and improved low light performance give the P100 an edge that's hard to top. The Pentax X90 is a fine camera in its own right, but if you're in the market for a 26x ultrazoom, consider the P100 first. It's not the bargain that the X90 is at close to $300, but it's a good buy and a heavyweight in the ultrazoom ring.
