  • What It Does
  • Specifications

The 16-megapixel COOLPIX B500 helps you to capture life from a creative angle. 
 
SIMPLE AND INTUITIVE OPERATION WITH SUPERIOR IMAGE QUALITY 
 
Enjoy ease of operation with superb results guaranteed, so you can concentrate on creative composition. 
 
Frequently used functions are at your fingertips via the mode dial and a host of features make it simple to achieve impressive Full HD movies (1080p/60i) and outstanding photos of your travels or hobbies like stargazing or bird-watching. 
 
With 16 megapixels and a highly efficient Backside illumination CMOS sensor you'll be shooting the kind of high-quality images you've always wanted to achieve, plus you can keep shooting wherever you travel as your camera is powered by AA batteries that are readily available anywhere in the world. 
 
NIKKOR 40X OPTICAL ZOOM 
 
Capture all the action at sporting events, shoot distant subjects in crisp detail in urban landscapes, or take astoundingly clear shots of the moon and night sky with the NIKKOR 40x optical zoom lens, extendable to 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom¹. 
 
Trusted NIKKOR optics offer exceptional performance, so you can enjoy a powerful lens that covers from wide-angle 22.5 mm to through to super-telephoto 900 mm angles of view (equivalent focal lengths in 35 mm) in a compact camera. 
 
HIGH-PERFORMANCE VIBRATION REDUCTION (VR) 
 
Camera stability is the key to achieving clear images. High-performance VR effectively suppresses the blur caused by camera shake, even at full 40x zoom, so sharp shots are guaranteed. 
 
The Lens shift VR effect is equivalent to a 3.0 stop increase in shutter speed (based on CIPA Standard, at the maximum telephoto position) and the easy-hold grip helps to keep your camera stable too. 
 
SNAPBRIDGE 
 
SnapBridge maintains a constant, low-power connection between your camera and your smartphone or tablet to give you easy control over your photographic life. 
 
Now you can sync shots to your smart device while you shoot, and share Nikon-quality images in an instant.
 
You can also control key camera functions via your phone, keep your camera on time and up-to-date, and more. 
 
MODE DIAL 
 
Customise your shooting experience by setting your favourite functions like Auto, Scene Mode or Sports in the mode dial at the top of your camera for easy access.
 
Then it's just simple intuitive operation to change settings, making shooting a breeze. 
 
ULTRA-SMOOTH FULL HD MOVIES 
 
Say goodbye to blurry videos forever when you can shoot Full HD (1080p/60i) movies with the help of high-performance 4-axis Hybrid Vibration Reduction (VR) that combines Lens-shift and Electronic VR to combat camera shake and effectively reduce blur – even at full 40x optical zoom. 
 
Impress your friends with crystal clear movies of family celebrations, concerts, architecture or wildlife, all shot in clear detail no matter how distant your subject – and save stills during movie recording. 
 
LARGE 7.5-CM/3.0-IN 921K-DOT LCD TILTING MONITOR 
 
Enjoy ease of shooting with the wide viewing-angle tilting monitor, making creative composition simple and ensuring that you know exactly what's in frame. 
 
Shoot stills and movies in comfort from a wide range of angles, with flexibility for every type of subject. The high-definition display consumes very little power, so you'll have plenty of battery life to keep shooting when you need it most. 
 
It offers sharp colour reproduction and superb visibility even when viewed from a diagonal direction.
 
Anti-reflection coating and anti-fingerprint acrylic coating ensure clear viewing at all times, and the 5-level brightness adjustment function gives superior visibility while playing back images on sunnier days. 
 
COMFORTABLE GRIP, PORTABLE SIZE 
 
Your camera is ergonomically designed for a stable grip, even though its body is extremely portable – approximately 113.5 (W) x 78.3 (H) x 94.9 (D) mm – and it fits comfortably in your hand. 
 
It's classically styled, with high performance and low weight too, weighing in at around 542 g, including batteries and SD card. 
 
TARGET FINDING AF 
 
Focus on your subject instantly with Target finding AF technology that analyses your shooting conditions to rapidly identify your subject. 
 
Just aim your camera at the intended subject and it will instantly predict where focus should be acquired. 
 
Active focus areas are set automatically in relation to the size of the subject, so your images will always be in clear focus. 
 
Target finding AF works as well with subjects found at the centre of frame as those off-centre, and is also effective in shooting smaller subjects like food and flowers.

Customer Reviews
Great Camera!!,
Very, very, happy with this camera - it said 'refurbished' - but it was essentially 'as new' still in the box, with all included accessories - and works perfectly. You'll be hard pressed to find a camera of this quality at this price anywhere else!
