Product Description

The travel-friendly A900 packs 20.1 Megapixels with a Backside illumination CMOS image sensor and 35x Optical zoom1 with 70x Dynamic Fine Zoom2. The new SnapBridge feature also stores your pictures on Nikon Image Space3 and lets you share your favourite moments online.

The A900 captures memories in the richest colours at the press of a button. Its Intelligent Target Finding Autofocus, which has Face Detection and subject-prediction technology, ensures remarkable accuracy in every shot. With its powerful 35x Optical zoom1 and 70x Dynamic Fine zoom2, even distant subjects can be photographed with astounding clarity.

Share your best shots with SnapBridge, a new feature that automatically downloads your images to your smart device via a constant Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connection. BLE uses minimal power, so you can continue shooting and sharing without draining your batteries. SnapBridge also allows your smart device to access your camera, even when it’s switched off.

The A900’s primed to grasp photo opportunities with a snap-back zoom that retracts to a wide angle and a pre-focus function that gets you ready. 5-Axis Hybrid Vibration Reduction nullifies shake and blur to deliver pixel-sharp images, while face-priority autofocus lets you lock onto your subjects. Then, capture memories with Time-lapse and Superlapse modes.

Perfect for shooting fireworks, stars or moving vehicles, the A900 offers maximum control of night scenes. It takes multiple shots at intervals then composites them to create impressive images. Traces of light are now easier to track, all at the touch of a button.

Add flair to your images with all-new Creative Mode. It lets you experiment with 12 Glamour Retouch options, designed to create eye-catching portraits. Next, with the power of 4K UHD, you can discover expansive landscapes, rich textures and lush colours.

The A900’s built with a powerful 3-inch 921k-dot TFT LCD monitor. It’s equipped with RGBW alignment, anti-reflection coating and brightness adjustment to ensure colour accuracy and visibility – no matter the sunlight. In your pocket or in your hand, the A900’s highly portable at just 300 g and 113 mm (w) x 66.5 mm (h) x 39.6 mm (d), without projections.
