Nikon Coolpix A900 Verdict

The Nikon Coolpix A900 offers a 35x optical zoom lens, in a fairly compact travel zoom camera. The camera also offers a proper tilting screen, that tilts both forwards and down. This will be useful if you often take photos at different angles. With 4K video recording, the A900 offers high-resolution video recording, although we found the Panasonic Lumix TZ90 video quality better. On default settings, the photos from the camera aren't as saturated as we'd have liked to see, and we found the image quality of the Canon Powershot SX730 slightly better, particularly for colour reproduction. 

Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC make it easy to connect the camera to a smartphone or tablet, making it quick and easy to share images to social media websites. The camera is easy to use, and there are a number of scene modes and creative effects to suit the beginner. There are more advanced controls, including manual control, and with two dials, it's easy to set both aperture and shutter speeds. The Nikon Coolpix A900 is feature-packed and is competitively priced, making it good value for money.
