A Different Perspective

Nikon Coolpix S9900 Compact Digital Camera The Nikon COOLPIX S9900 Digital Camera available in black features a 16MP 1/2.3" CMOS sensor for high-resolution images and full 1080p HD movies at 30 fps. The 30x optical zoom lens delivers a 35mm equivalent 25-750mm focal range for a wide-angle thru telephoto zoom range. The lens can additionally be zoomed using the 60x Dynamic Fine Zoom that profoundly doubles the distance. The lens also offers Vibration Reduction to help diminish camera shake when photographing at the longer zoom lengths or with long shutter speeds. A 3" LCD 921k-dot vari-angle screen lets you compose images from specialized angles, as well as review your pictures and navigate thru the menus.

Connected with built-in Wi-Fi and NFC, then paired with Nikon snapbridge, lets you easily transfer images from the S9900 to your smartphone or other compatible smart device, and then share on a favorite social media sites. Enabling the camera's GPS function allows you to record the location where each image was captured and map your shooting passage. A PSAM mode dial on the camera top lets you take control over the shutter speed and aperture.
