As well as being compared against other travel zooms, the Nikon Coolpix A900 is also often compared to boutiques, super zooms, pro digicams, mirrorless and entry-level DSLRs. The Nikon Coolpix A900's top rivals come from Canon (such as the PowerShot SX720 HS and the PowerShot SX730 HS) and Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-HX90V and the Cyber-shot DSC-HX80)

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 480p @ 30fps), has a screen which flips out 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 50 fps) and doesn't have a viewfinder (none vs digital).
