Nikon Coolpix A900 Compact Digital Camera

The Nikon COOLPIX A900 Digital Camera features a BSI CMOS 20MP 1/2.3" sensor for high-resolution images and 4K videos at 30 frames per second. This sensor's engineering utilizes a stacked backside-illuminated (BSI) creation to improve clarity and photo quality when working in poorly-lit situations. The 35x optical zoom lens delivers a 35mm equivalent focal perspective of 24-840mm, covering wide-angle thru telephoto ranges to handle working in a wide array of situations. Additional subject magnification can be enacted using the 70x Dynamic Fine Zoom that in-effect doubles the camera's horizon. The lens also has Vibration Reduction to help diminish the display of camera shake when photographing at the longer zoom reach or with enduring shutter speeds. A 3" LCD 921k-dot tilting monitor allows image composition from various angles, as well as providing image review and navigating the menus. The camera is manufactured in Silver or Black

In camera Bluetooth low energy (BLE), NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity allow the A900 to combine with a compatible smart device employing the Nikon SnapBridge application. Images may then simply sent to the joined smartphone or tablet, and from there shared on poplar social media websites. While a PSAM mode dial mounted on top of the camera offers complete control over the aperture and shutter speed, automatic exposure and scene modes make it straightforward to capture a wide variety of often-encountered subjects under multiple lighting situations.
