The Nikon Coolpix A900 offers comes complete with the highest resolution available packed into a very mobile camera. The Nikon Coolpix offers a range of video quality ranging from 4K to standard 720. It also makes for a great action camera by offering a high frame rate, up to 60 frames per second, perfect for travel vlogging. The Coolpix A900 is well known for being the upgraded versions of its popular predecessor the Nikon Coolpix S9900. However there are some small downfalls versus its predecessor. The S9900 had a build in time lapse recording option which for whatever reason Nikon decided not to include in the A900. A decision that surprised most considering the time-lapse feature has appeared to be growing in popularity over recent years. One of the best features of this camera is the wide variety of auto focus features it offers. This is very important for the typical one the go film makes who needs a camera that will adjust focus while constantly being on the move and subjects consistently changing. Like most point and shot camera there isn’t an adjustable lens option however this camera comes with a 24–840 mm F3.4 – F6.9 Zoom Lens with a 35x optimal zoom great for getting shots from a long distance away. For those who are not familiar with the look and feel of the camera it the same similar size to most point and shot camera on the market and nearly identical is size and weight to it spiritual processors the Nikon Coolpix S9900. With regards to memory the A900 has an adjustable SDHC memory card slot which allows you to use any size interchangeable SDHC memory card. The A900 has a beautiful 3 Inch HD display that can flip in multiple directions. Such a feature is critical when considering a vlogging camera.
Overall the Nikon Coolpix A900 is a great camera for the casual film maker looking for mobility and ease of use. The auto focus, auto stabilization as well as the ability to film decent quality in low light make it a solid option for anyone considering purchasing a new vlogging camera.
