I'm not really sure how to put the camera into this mode or what it does... help? Thanks!
Telephoto is dealing with zoom, thus the need for a 'zoom' lens or telephoto lens; that's not a function of the camera itself.
If you're looking at the dial and have mistaken the Tv setting for telephoto, then what you're really looking at is Shutter Priority mode; which is a half auto mode where you can choose the shutter speed to use and the camera decides the aperture.
Reading the camera's users manual is always helpful.
If you don't have the manual, you can download it here:
User's Manual - Coolpix P90 - Guide to Digital Photography
does that mean that most portrait photos are taken in telephoto with the lenses all the way extended?
