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.
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.
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.
The COOLPIX A900 can go as far as you want to go. 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. But you don't have to understand exposure controls to get great results-the COOLPIX A900 can do all that work for you.
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 one hour 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.
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.

This camera takes AMAZING photos. If you are just getting started, I recommend this camera. This camera will upload a photo right to your phone or tablet. You just need to download an app. I read if you have IOS it may take a couple times. I have Android and it works amazingly! This camera is compact enough to bring with you anywhere.

I love this camera
By Joey and Morgan Cato
This camera is very good for the price. It takes clear pictures and good in low light. With any digital camera the further out you zoom the less clear the picture becomes. If you want super duper crystal clear pictures then spend the money and buy a better (more expensive) camera or get a tripod. Also if you plan on taking low light pictures without a flash then you should also be using a tripod. I keep a mini poseable tripod with me at all times. I've used this camera in all light settings and haven't been disappointed. I had the s7000 for 2 days before I returned it and got this one. As for SnapBridge, I too was having connection problems. I think I figured it out. Once you're done with transferring your pictures unpair the camera from the SnapBridge app. You'll have to pair every time but it seems to work every time.

The software setup is atrocious... I've only had it for 6 weeks and now I'm having problems with the camera itself... there's a black shadow appearing in each corner of the pictures... guess I'll have to see how Nikon's support works... Very Disappointed!
