The COOLPIX B500 feels great in your hands, whether you’re zooming in with its super telephoto NIKKOR glass lens or recording 1080p Full HD video using the flip-up LCD. And it takes all the work out of shooting beautiful photos and videos with its 16 megapixel low-light sensor, Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction (VR), easy menus and controls, fun creative effects and outstanding automatic operation. Plus, the whole time you’re shooting, the COOLPIX B500 can be easily and seamlessly connected to a compatible smartphone through Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology for instant photo sharing and remote camera control. Simply brilliant.  


40x optical zoom, 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom

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.

Unleash new possibilities with a compatible smartphone

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!

Tilting 3.0-inch 921,000-dot LCD

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.

Simple, convenient operation for stress-free shooting

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.

Full HD 1080p videos with stereo sound

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.

Intelligent autofocus

It’s frustrating when a smartphone camera focuses on the wrong thing. With COOLPIX B500, Target Finding AF quickly determines your intended subject and puts the focus where it belongs—on your subject.

Flatter your friends and family

Create beautiful photos of the people you care about. Smart Portrait System activates several features ideal for portraits, like Face Priority AF, Skin Softening, Blink Warning and more.

Shoot without interruption

The COOLPIX B500 is so energy efficient, you can take up to 600 shots on four regular AA alkaline batteries. Capture an entire vacation—and then some—on just one set of batteries.

Show off your creativity

Easily create artistic high-impact photos with the new Creative Mode. Select from five professionally developed presets that combine options like aperture, contrast and color reproduction for stunning results. Preview the effects before you shoot or capture one image all five ways and pick your favorite.

Fantastic For the price

Super zoom compact cameras have come a long way.
I purchased this for my granddaughter who at a young age is interested in video production and the smartphone is no longer good enough.
As a former professional now a avid hobbyist I use high end DSLR cameras but was very satisfied with the overall build and image quality. It had some difficulty staying in focus when zoomed to long telephoto length , it tended to hunt .But this is not a fair comparison because to get lock on focus, you are looking at paying 10 x the price. It compares favorably with similar cameras in this price range. Still photos are also on par with the competition.
A real plus is the use of AAA batteries and overall simplicity of operation.
I would recommend this camera as a step up from a camera phone or point & shoot.

Good Quality Camera

I've had similar cameras before, so knew pretty much what to expect. The camera is the perfect size for travel. I take it with me on trips rather than my larger DSLR Nikon. The viewing screen is large and bright. The picture quality is very good and the controls are easy to understand. My only complaint is that no instruction manual came with the camera. I realize it's a refurbished unit, but the manual would have been nice to have.Read full review...

Great little camera

Easy to use. Best feature is the moveable viewing screen. I'm a professional photographer and use this as a back up and sometimes use it in general. I get about 350 to 400 pictures on battery life depending on zoom and what feature your shooting in. Great clear pictures and video. I purchased an aftermarket lens tube, filters and sun shade cap. See below pic of the moon with this cameraRead full review...

Beautiful camera

Love it!
I saw the same one at Walmart for 299!
Great deal! I finally decided to make the upgrade from my iphone camera in hopes of creating better images for my jewelry boutique: Golden Zen Boutique (
It's important you hold the camera very steady in order to maintain a crisp focus. It zooms crazy far! This is a great value and totally worth the money.
