Nikon Coolpix A900│Review

Nikon Coolpix A900│Review

Hey guys!

I have had a few people requesting that I do a review of my new camera. So here it is! (Also I’m not talking about the video quality because I have never tried it.)

Before getting a camera:

Before deciding which camera to buy, you should do lots of research. They definitely aren’t cheap and you want to be sure what you are getting is a good camera! As it was my first one there wasn’t really a point in getting a really expensive and big camera.

First impressions:

So when I first got my camera at Christmas it, unfortunately, broke down whilst taking the first photo. I have to say I wasn’t impressed when it happened. Before getting my camera, my parents and I had looked into reviews of the camera and they were all, generally, very positive. I was quite disappointed because I was really looking forward to having my OWN first camera!

A month later (after having sent it back to Nikon), It came whilst I was in my ski camp. When my mum told me that I was so happy! I couldn’t wait to try it out! So the second I came home I instantly wanted to try it out. I set it up and did a few test photos and it worked (finally!). The screen on the camera isn’t very pixelated so at first thoughts, I wasn’t very impressed with the image quality. The day after I really went out and took a few photos. Later that day I put them on my computer and let me tell you; the screen on the camera is perhaps not very detailed but some of the photos turned out really detailed!

Design:

Zoom:

The A900 has a whopping 35x zoom. I have to say I’m pretty impressed with the quality too. I was taking a few close up shots with it a few days ago and I zoomed in about halfway to get the details of a dog. Even though it was moving a lot (I mean it is a dog after all) I was able to take a really detailed photo. (I’m proud of myself.)

Screen:

The screen can face all the way forward to help you take selfies, and it can also tilt downwards, which can help with other shooting positions – such as holding the camera high above your head to get the shot.

The screen isn’t touch sensitive which could be a bit frustrating for users coming from a smartphone. But personally, I don’t mind.

I also find the screen a bit sensitive. I haven’t touched the screen (at least I have tried not to) and I can already see a few scratches (which is a complete catastrophe for me because I always like having everything neat and clean, apparently you can hardly see them but it drives me nuts😉). I am probably going to buy a protection screen, though (I’m not even sure that exists? I’ll need to check that.

Image Quality:

In general, I find the image quality is really good. On the camera’s screen my first impression was that the quality is a bit poor but when I looked at a few photos on my computer I was really happy because they turned out really detailed (I know I already said this in my first impressions but I couldn’t decide where to it so I put in both categories).

The only problem is that the image quality is pretty bad if there’s bad lighting. There is the flash but I find that it doesn’t turn out good when I use it.

As for the colours of the images. I find that they are nicely balanced and turn out really well! I have been playing around with lighting and have got some really cool effects. A few days ago whilst going out, it was really foggy and it was so cool taking photos of the road!

So that was my review! I am really happy with my camera and would definitely recommend it if you are looking into getting a camera! The price isn’t too bad and it is perfect for travelling because it fits in your pocket.

Also now that I have a camera (how many times have I said this?) I am going to write posts show pictures of places I visit. I hope you will enjoy that!

XOXO, Rosie <3
