Expand the boundaries of everyday photography with the 16-megapixel COOLPIX B500, fitted with a high performance 40x optical zoom and 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom. See the world from new angles with a flexible 3-inch tilting LCD monitor and share it all with SnapBridge, a new feature that connects the camera to your smart device. Experience these powerful features in a compact size.
See the Beauty in the Details
The magic is in the details. Capture every one with 40x optical zoom and 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom. By switching to macro mode, you can get as close as 1cm from the subject. An outstanding Vibration Reduction stabilises your shots even in the most precarious situation, with a shutter speed effect at approximately 3.0 stops faster and 40x optical zoom. Keep swift, speeding subjects in focus with Target Finding autofocus (AF) and Pre-focus AF. For moments that deserve more than a photo, the B500 offers Full HD (1080p/60i) video-recording and creative shooting modes such as Short Movie Show that combines multiple clips into 30-second films.
The Smarter Way to Share
Share your best shots with SnapBridge, a new feature that automatically downloads your images to your smart device via a constant Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connection. BLE maintains constant connection with minimal power, so you can continue shooting and sharing without draining your batteries too quickly. SnapBridge also allows your smart device to access your camera, even when the camera is switched off. It even automatically archives your pictures onto Nikon Image Space.
Capture Night in a New Light
Master night scenes with the new Multiple Exposure Lighten feature that perfectly seizes fireworks and stars. In this mode, the B500 takes multiple shots at intervals then composites them to create impressive images of light paths.
Push Creativity to its Limits
Express yourself your way with the new Creative mode. Choose from an array of presets and let the camera do the rest, so all you have to do is click the shutter-release button. Personalise your shots with 12 Glamour Retouch options and make your adrenaline-fueled shots even more thrilling.
Designed to Empower you
The B500 is performance and portability personified. At approximately 542g and measuring 113.5mm (width) x 78.3mm (height) x 94.9mm (depth) without projections, the B500 comes with a comfortable grip to shoot with enhanced stability. Intuitive control features such as the mode dial and Side Zoom Control means you will always be ready for the next photo opportunity.
Get Closer to What Matters
Few shots are too far away for the COOLPIX B500's NIKKOR ED glass lens. 40x optical zoom gives you super telephoto power, then Dynamic Fine Zoom, an enhanced digital zoom, effectively doubles that reach for a whopping 80x zoom. Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction (VR) keeps your shots steady-crucial at such long distances-and a 16-megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor captures every detail.
Install Nikon's new SnapBridge app on a compatible smartphone or tablet and unlock exciting new capabilities with the COOLPIX B500. Built-in Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) maintain a constant connection between the app and your camera, so each shot you take automatically transfers to your smartphone or tablet for sharing, editing with photo apps or uploading to your favorite sites. You can even use the SnapBridge app to control your camera remotely!
Enjoy the View
The COOLPIX B500's large, tilting LCD display makes it easy to compose your shots and monitor your video recording. You can also use it to find exciting new shooting angles. Reviewing and sharing your creations is a pleasure, too-every shot and video looks fantastic on the high resolution display.
Master the Camera in No Time
The COOLPIX B500 is so easy to use, anyone can take great photos and videos with it. Just turn the camera on, point, shoot and marvel at the results. For maximum point-and-shoot convenience, select Easy Auto Mode. It automatically optimizes the camera settings for each shot, no matter how challenging the situation. You'll be free to enjoy the moment while you capture it.
Make Movies that Amaze
The COOLPIX B500 is a powerful video camera, too. Capture moments in Full HD 1080p quality with stereo sound and marvel at how 4-Axis Hybrid Vibration Reduction (VR) counteracts shaky hands for tripod-steady videos. Transform a regular video into a thrilling fast-motion sequence with the new Superlapse Movie feature, great for first-person perspectives, sports moments, video tours and more.
Don't Sweat a Little Camera Shake
When shooting photos, Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction (VR) counteracts the smallest movements for sharper, clearer photos. When recording video, 4-Axis Hybrid VR offsets up/down, left/right, in/out and even tilting movements for remarkably steady videos, even if you're walking or riding in a car.
Let the Camera Call the Shots
Easily match your situation to one of 18 Scene Modes like Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, Sunset and more, and enjoy effortless great shots. Or, choose Easy Auto Mode and let the camera choose for you.
