About Nikon A900

Pack light. Go big.

Think you have to give up great photos and videos to travel light? Think again. The versatile COOLPIX A900 isn't much larger than a smartphone, yet it has a super telephoto NIKKOR glass lens with Lens Shift Vibration Reduction (VR), takes beautiful 20 megapixel photos and 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) videos—even in low light—and is always connected to a compatible smartphone through Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) technology for instant sharing and remote control. Tilt the high resolution screen and find unique new angles, add creative effects with ease and zoom in with 70x Dynamic Fine Zoom! Bring home more than memories; bring photos and videos that will last a lifetime.

Small size, big versatility

Pull the COOLPIX A900 out of a pocket or purse and capture distant subjects in staggering detail. Its super telephoto NIKKOR glass lens has the most zoom power of any COOLPIX Slim Zoom camera—35x optical zoom and a whopping 70x Dynamic Fine Zoom (an enhanced digital zoom that effectively doubles the reach)—and its 20 MP backside illuminated image sensor produces brilliant image quality in nearly any light.

Always connected

Install Nikon's new SnapBridge app on a compatible smartphone or tablet* and unlock exciting new capabilities with the COOLPIX A900. Built-in Wi-Fi®, NFC and Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) maintain a constant connection between the app and your camera, so each shot you take automatically transfers to your smartphone or tablet for sharing, editing with photo apps or uploading to your favorite sites. You can even use the SnapBridge app to control your camera remotely!

The COOLPIX A900's large, tilting LCD makes it easy to compose your shots and monitor your video recording. You can also use it to find exciting new shooting angles. Reviewing and sharing your creations is a pleasure, too—every shot looks fantastic on the display.


Take control of your shots

For advanced shooters, a PSAM mode dial is available right on top of the camera, much like a DSLR. Control the COOLPIX A900's aperture and shutter speed to shape your shots exactly as you want them or overcome difficult shooting situations.

Ultra impressive videos

Capture sights and sounds in the awe-inspiring resolution of 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160/30p). Face-priority AF keeps focus where you want it, and 5-Axis Hybrid Vibration Reduction (VR) keeps videos tripod-steady. Record up to 4GB or 29 minutes worth of video with the touch of a button, and save still images during recording or playback. Quickly and easily delete unwanted footage right in the camera, or transform a video into a thrilling fast-motion sequence with the new Superlapse Movie feature, great for first-person perspectives, sports moments, video tours and more.

Turn the ordinary into extraordinary

Creative Mode makes it easy to create artistic photos and videos, right in the camera. Capture fireworks like never before with Multiple Exposure Lighten, which combines multiple shots into one amazing image. Turn a sequence of action into a fast-paced video with Superlapse and much more.

The Nikon COOLPIX A900: Pocket-friendly Travel Companion 
Made for the user with small pockets but the biggest luggage, the A900 is the perfect small camera for the user on the go. With 35x optical zoom and 70x Dynamic Fine Zoom, the camera ensures that the user is always poised to capture the perfect shot, whether watching the sun set on a beach, or soaking in a street carnival. For those looking to capture the tiniest details on their travels, the A900 also achieves sharp focus even in macro mode at a distance of approximately 1 cm. With the camera's 20.3 effective megapixels delivered with a backside-illumination CMOS sensor and high-performance NIKKOR lens, all these adventures can be captured with rich and remarkable detail, even in low light. 

Shooting on the move can be tricky, be it from the back of a camel or on a tour bus. Hence the A900 is equipped with a high-performance VR that works effectively to reduce camera shake even when using the camera's 35x optical zoom. For still images, the lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) and electronic VR work in tandem to create beautiful, sharp images, providing an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops*4 faster which would come in handy when photographing activities involving children, sports or pets. Snap-back zoom also aids functionality during telephoto shooting by switching to wide-angle with the press of a button, allowing subjects that have been lost to be re-captured in focus instantly. Releasing the button allows the user to revert the zoom back to its original position. 

Great photos become a breeze with a suite of functions to aid image capture. For greater convenience and ease-of-use, the A900's design incorporates Mode and Command dials. The former allows mode selections of Programmed auto, Shutter-priority auto, Aperture-priority auto and Manual while holding the camera in shooting position, while the latter enables options such as exposure control, scene mode changes, and AF area selection during shooting. 

For situations that call for video creation, the A900 excels with 4K UHD video recording with stereo sound. High-definition movies with resolutions up to 2160/30p are available, along with the ability to take high-quality still images during playback. A brand new "Superlapse" function has also been introduced in addition to time-lapse capability for unique movie expressions that blend changing landscapes and unique perspectives for sharing. Useful for vloggers and those who prefer to shoot without a tripod, the camera's 4-axis Hybrid VR helps to effectively reduce the effects of camera shake during video creation. 

Image creation is made fun and simple with a suite of intuitive tools to use during and after shooting. A new Creative mode allows the selection of various presets to create a personalized feel that matches the user's preferences, enabling up to 36 unique options. For dramatic images of light trails, the A900 also comes with the Multiple Exposure Lighten, a nifty new feature that composites multiple images taken with interval-timer for beautiful images of light trails and fireworks. Glamour Mode has also been incorporated into Smart Portrait Mode, with an even wider selection of intelligent options such as "Blink proof" and "Smile timer" to help subjects look their best. 

In an era with ubiquitous mobile connectivity, the new application of SnapBridge, with seamless Bluetooth connection, allows images to be automatically synced to a smart device for convenient browsing and uploading. Wireless remote shooting for difficult-to-achieve shots is also possible with SnapBridge, along with the easy embedding of photo credit information and a suite of other connected features
