I am a serious photographer and have been such since the year 2000. Although I travel with and shoot with a big Nikon D 7100 for important photos, I have used a small, compact Nikon Coolpix S8200 camera for fun and to sneak a small, but very good, camera into concerts and performances that do not allow photography. As a result, I have been able to take GREAT pictures, and some videos (at a distance of 200+ feet) of Cher, Santana, Eric Clapton, Andrea Bocelli, In Volo, and other celebrities. The S 8200 is a 16 MP camera and has a 14X zoom (4.5 - 63mm) and has served me VERY well for a camera that--at the time--cost less than $300.00 and is small, came with a handy leather case, and captures images almost as sharp and with the accurate colors as my big Nikon D7100! Then, about a month ago, I saw the Coolpix A900 on the Nikon website and decided to upgrade to a better small compact camera. I was NOT disappointed! The A900 is just as good (in terms of sharpness and color accuracy) and is only slightly larger than the S8200 but has more megapixels (20 MP) and more zoom (4.3 - 151mm) with almost the same aperture range as the S8200. Additionally, the A900 has WiFi and Bluetooth capability and, after downloading the free Nikon app, I can set my A900 to send my images to my iPhone in the event that I want to instantly send a picture to someone (but, obviously a better image than I could have captured with my iPhone's 8 MP, tiny lens camera) without waiting until I'm in front of my home computer or laptop in my hotel room (when traveling) to send as an email attachment. The only thing that I wish the A900 has that my S8200 has, is the ability to easily see the metadata of an imageat the push of a dial, and the ability of the S8200 to automatically raise the flash when the camera is set to automatic; I'm not sure that I like the fact that I have to manually raise the flash on the A900 if I need to use flash, although, in a way I like the fact that I do not have to remember that my A900 camera will accidentally flash if I've forgotten that I had left it in either automatic or force flash mode (like with the S8200). The A900 does, however, have some very nice features that my Coolpix S8200 lacks: If I have captured an image in portrait orientation, I can see it at its full length when reviewing an image simply by turning the camera sideways (as I would with any other digital camera) , but I can still view the SAME image (albeit smaller) without having to turn the camera sideways. I also really like the fact that the A900 has a moveable LCD screen that enables me to take pictures from down low next to the ground to over my head, while viewing what the lens is seeing from a comfortable position. All in all, I really like my Nikon Coolpix A900 camera BETTER than my great Coolpix S8200 and will be sneaking it into future concerts that also forbid taking pictures or videos! (SUGGESTION: Why doesn't Nikon make a similar camera with a small viewfinder and a way of turning OFF the LCD screen on the back of the camera? I say this because, when I try to surreptitiously take photos in a darkened environment, the bright LCD is annoying to others sitting behind me, and, it is a dead give-away (while sitting in a concert where I am taking photos or videos) to the staff in a performance venue who will run over to me and tell me to put my camera away!)

Been using it for a few weeks now; took it on a few expeditions with exemplary results. The different settings work well; programmable options work as promised, and the scene settings have been very useful. Photos average about 8.7 MB each so be prepared to have an extra memory card if shooting for extended periods of time. 4K video fills up the memory very quickly as well. Positioning the screen has a smooth but sturdy feel to it. Notches on either of the top corners are available for wrist straps or a neck strap.
Only real caution is the flash feels a little flimsy; take care while it is extended. Despite that, would definitely recommend.

Posted are a few of the photos I have taken so far.

I have used many many Nikon and Canon point and shoots over the years.

This Camera has a flaw.

Handheld or on a tripod with or without timer, at moderate to full zoom, this camera cannot hold the framed image.
If a subject is centered when you take a picture the subject is in a corner of the image.
I have to spray and pray in order to get my subject properly centered.

This never happened on my S9900, S6500, AW110 or P510. I could always HANDHOLD the full zoom and get my subject properly framed.

I take a lot of images (200,000 plus per year) and I am very hard on cameras (went through at least 10 S6500's loved them but wanted higher zoom) and I think I may need to replace this with something other than a Nikon.

I also wish it had a fully movable screen like the S9900 and that it did not get rid of GPS embedding like the S9900.

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.

Worst Panorama EVER! I've been shooting with Nikon Coolpixes for a good ten years now. Have had 5-6 models and always been happy with them. A brief flirtation with a Sony CyberShot, but went back to a Nikon for the next phase. The new "Easy Panorama" is the most obnoxious, practically useless feature ever. I'm experienced with these cameras and I'm lucky if I get 1 in 4 efforts to work. The most frequent result is "Unable to Create Panorama."

Aside from that, it takes good photos, but it's a bit on the heavy side. Battery life is an issue..... I found out the hard way on a European cruise. Too bad all the camera stores in the world are closing. Hard to switch brands when you can't hold something and ask a human being questions. Nikon, you let me down.

Took this new camera on a recent trip to PCB. Works great! I read all the reviews before purchasing it. The person(s) who say the zoom doesn't focus doesn't know how to use a camera!!! Obviously, to max full zoom, you need a tripod or set the camera on a steady surface. Duh!

Size is great for a large pocket or fanny pack. I bought a special case with wrist loop as I wanted to keep it out of the fine sand and wind.

Not gonna lie, I have been an Olympus fan for many years. But when I dropped my point and shoot Olympus and discovered they didn't make that particular model with the super zoom and features that I wanted, I had to go looking. I was not happy about having to change camera models because the beauty of the Olympus cameras that I have previously owned, the batteries/chargers/camera cases were all interchangeable, so I could keep on using perfectly good batteries with the new camera. Long story short, I am thrilled with this Nikon Coolpix - the zoom capability is superior to my previous Olympus cameras, the features are pretty much equivalent to what I was used to and the photos I'm getting are stunning! This camera was very affordable and the battery charger/batteries are reasonably priced. The more I learn about the camera functions, the better my photos are - I am a Nikon convert, this is a great little camera!!

Good camera who loves auto system.
Nikon also provides Aperture Priority mode, Shutter Priority mode & Manual mode in this.
If u want to take blur background with crystal clear object then u will disappoint but it is not DSLR .
Zoom is good if u take portrait apx.10x then camera gives good result if u go further then should use Tripod.
Nikkor lense has 4.3 - 151 mm range . Can take photo in dim light but ISO range not sufficient. COOLPIX A 900 SILVER
4k video quality is per expectation .
Overall it is good travel camera with point n shoot.


In these modern days this camera cannot even be described as good. My HTC U11 phone camera takes better shots. I am a seasoned photographer of over forty years experience with all top brands. All pictures taken with this are dark and blurry if blown up. Definitely NOT recommended. The attached pic was taken with the sun to the left.

Es un excelente producto de muy alta calidad, le puse esa calificación debido a que podría ser mejor en ambientes oscuros sin embargo el zoom y todas las funcionalidades no me han decepcionado hasta ahora.

Not expected this performance and the picture quality is not upto the mark.
Battery is very low and getting exhausted very fast. As they claimed it losts for 200 shots long but not actually.
Nikon is already providing good other point and shoot cameras in a budget less than this.
Only pro is it can record 4k videos and moving screen.
