Add flair to your images with the new Creative Mode that allows selection of preset settings for various scenes. Experiment with 12 Glamour Retouch options, designed to create eye-catching portraits.
The A900 is built with a 3-inch 921k-dot TFT LCD monitor, equipped with RGBW alignment, anti-reflection coating and brightness adjustment to ensure colour accuracy and visibility, no matter how harsh the sunlight is.

1. Key features
The compact body houses a 35x optical zoom lens (24–840 mm*) with 70x** Dynamic Fine Zoom (up to 1680 mm*) to enable versatile image acquisition from wide-angle vistas to close-ups of distant subjects. At any zoom range the combination of optical and electronic VR (Vibration Reduction) helps you take steady pictures at slower shutter speeds — so even in dim environments, your subject can be captured crisp and clear. Core technologies including Backside illumination CMOS image sensor and high-performance NIKKOR lens assure you of high quality images at all times. *35mm format equivalent. **Magnification of Dynamic Fine Zoom is calculated from the maximum wide-angle position of optical zoom.
This camera is fast, ofering quick power up, and responsive Autofocus to get your subject clearly focused without having to wait. When a unique shutter opportunity comes your way, capturing the moment is only a split-second away.
SnapBridge eliminates the barrier between your camera and smart device, through a combination of Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) technology and a dedicated app.* In addition to automatic picture transfer from camera to smart device thanks to the constant connection between the two devices, it also offers free, unlimited upload of thumbnails on the NIKON IMAGE SPACE cloud service.** It’s possible to embed location, date/time, and two pieces of credit information (i.e. copyright, comments, text and stamps). Plus, support for Wi-Fi® and NFC further expands wireless connectivity.

The Command dial lets you swiftly access four exposure modes (P/S/A/M) and other manual settings for personal control that full auto cannot provide. Have an easy time taking creative pictures just the way you want, using Creative mode; it offers nine built-in preset modes that you can choose in-camera while checking out how they look with four different effects applied to it. When you decide on a mode, press the shutter and the camera automatically takes five images — the original plus four with effects applied. In other words, you have a choice of 36 image options in total. A great way to take nightscapes is with Multiple Exp. Lighten function, which compares multiple images and automatically composites the brightest parts to express light paths such as fireworks or streaming traffic.
Capture the details with captivating 4K UHD 3840 x 2160/30p* movies including stereo sound. What’s more, you can capture still images during movie playback for easy sharing.
