As well as being compared against other travel zooms, the Nikon Coolpix A900 is also often compared to super zooms, pro digicams, boutiques and mirrorless. The Nikon Coolpix A900's top rivals come from Canon (such as the PowerShot SX720 HS and the PowerShot G7 X Mark II) and Nikon (such as the Coolpix S9900 and the Coolpix B700)

compared toTravel zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Nikon Coolpix A900 compared to other travel zoom competitors include: it records very high quality movies (UHD @ 30fps vs 1080p @ 60fps), has a screen which flips out, is newer (february 2016 vs april 2015), is more popular and has a faster max shutter speed (1/4000 of a second vs 1/2000 of a second).

However, on average it doesn't have a built-in GPS, slightly lower maximum light sensitivity (3,200 ISO vs 12,800 ISO), doesn't record movies in 24p, doesn't shoot as fast continuously (7 fps vs 40 fps) and doesn't have a viewfinder (none vs digital).
