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!



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.)



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
