Compact quality, expressive versatility
Your pocket-friendly travel companion
Made for the user with small pockets but the biggest luggage, the A900 is the perfect small camera for the user on the go. With 35x optical zoom and 70x Dynamic Fine Zoom, the camera ensures that the user is always poised to capture the perfect shot, whether watching the sun set on a beach, or soaking in a street carnival. For those looking to capture the tiniest details on their travels, the A900 also achieves sharp focus even in macro mode at a distance of approximately 1 cm. With the camera's 20.3 effective megapixels* delivered with a backside-illumination CMOS sensor and high-performance NIKKOR lens, all these adventures can be captured with rich and remarkable detail, even in low light.
Shooting on the move can be tricky, be it from the back of a camel or on a tour bus.
Hence the A900 is equipped with a high-performance VR that works effectively to reduce camera shake even when using the camera's 35x optical zoom. For still images, the lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) and electronic VR work in tandem to create beautiful, sharp images, providing an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops*4 faster which would come in handy when photographing activities involving children, sports or pets. Snap-back zoom also aids functionality during telephoto shooting by switching to wide-angle with the press of a button, allowing subjects that have been lost to be re-captured in focus instantly. Releasing the button allows the user to revert the zoom back to its original position.

Great photos become a breeze with a suite of functions to aid image capture.
For greater convenience and ease-of-use, the A900's design incorporates Mode and Command dials. The former allows mode selections of Programmed auto, Shutter-priority auto, Aperture-priority auto and Manual while holding the camera in shooting position, while the latter enables options such as exposure control, scene mode changes, and AF area selection during shooting.
For situations that call for video creation, the A900 excels with 4K UHD video recording with stereo sound.
High-definition movies with resolutions up to 2160/30p are available, along with the ability to take high-quality still images during playback. A brand new "Superlapse" function has also been introduced in addition to time-lapse capability for unique movie expressions that blend changing landscapes and unique perspectives for sharing. Useful for vloggers and those who prefer to shoot without a tripod, the camera's 4-axis Hybrid VR helps to effectively reduce the effects of camera shake during video creation.
Image creation is made fun and simple with a suite of intuitive tools to use during and after shooting.
A new Creative mode allows the selection of various presets to create a personalized feel that matches the user's preferences, enabling up to 36 unique options. For dramatic images of light trails, the A900 also comes with the Multiple Exposure Lighten, a nifty new feature that composites multiple images taken with interval-timer for beautiful images of light trails and fireworks. Glamour Mode has also been incorporated into Smart Portrait Mode, with an even wider selection of intelligent options such as "Blink proof" and "Smile timer" to help subjects look their best.
Automatically sync to a smart device for convenient browsing and uploading.
In an era with ubiquitous mobile connectivity, the new application of SnapBridge, with seamless Bluetooth® connection, allows images to be automatically synced to a smart device for convenient browsing and uploading. Wireless remote shooting for difficult-to-achieve shots is also possible with SnapBridge, along with the easy embedding of photo credit information and a suite of other connected features.
