  The Nikon COOLPIX B500 Digital Camera (Red) 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 easliy and seamlessly connected to a compatible smartphone through Bluetooth low energy (BLE) technology for instant photo sharing and remote camera control. Simply brilliant.


Zoom in on faraway details

Don’t miss it when your daughter scores a goal on the other end of the field from where you’re sitting. The Nikon Coolpix B500 is ready for the moment, with a powerful 40X zoom lens built into a compact body. Sure, she’s dribbling through the defense quickly, but the camera locks in with target-finding autofocus and subject tracking so you can keep the focus right where it belongs. Optical vibration reduction keeps those little tremors from sneaking in and blurring the image when you don’t have time to grab your tripod.

Shoot in natural light

Bright daylight is easy to shoot in. But what do you do when you’re in a dimly lit ballroom or photographing city streets at night? The B500’s 16-megapixel image sensor works well in low light situations, allowing you to retain the warm, romantic quality of the existing light without using a flash. Then, if you’re switching to a portrait in the same environment, you can employ the built-in flash to add a little brightness to your subject’s face when you need it.

Stay connected

The B500 is equipped with Wi-Fi and NFC, so you can quickly share photos and videos online, and touch-pair the camera with compatible mobile devices. Better yet, built-in Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) lets you establish a constant connection with your compatible smartphone for instant photo sharing and remote camera control.

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.

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!

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.

Fair for a beginner

Good: It's easy to use and has a fairly large screen. The image quality, on the screen at least, seemed fine. It's aesthetically pleasing.

Bad: It has a 40X optical zoom but doesn't focus in on small objects. It doesn't have a viewfinder so you always have to use the display screen which uses up more battery power. This also makes it more difficult to take pictures outdoors on sunny days. The screen slides up and down. This is better than some cameras, but it doesn't turn inward to protect the screen.

Conclusion: There is very little advantage to this camera over a pocket camera the size of a pack of cigarettes. The optical zoom (as long as you're nit taking tight shots) and the look and feel of the body are the only real benefits.

Full disclosure: I ended up returning this item.

I've used a Nikon Coolpix for years and this was just a step up from what I had. It's a little bigger than the one I had so not quite as easy to throw into my purse. But the quality of the pictures is fantastic as it always is with a Nikon camera. I haven't had the opportunity to use it much but will be in the coming year. I am excited to see what I can do with it. Nikon will always be my brand. Absolutely love the quality of the camera and the pictures they take.Read full review...

Super product and great company to buy from

I have had an older Nikon of the same type and was well pleased but I gave it to my sister for her birthday and she loves it. The new B500 is just as easy to use but it has more to offer when taking far away snapshots. I love it and can't wait to take it on our cruise to Alaska in September 2018. The downloads are easy also. Great camera!Read full review...

This camera has very good quality and more than enough options to take great pictures. It is very easy to understand the available options and settings. For the price, this is the best out there in this price range for most photography. And has more than enough zoom power to make easy close ups from far off. Has a few settings that could be improved on, but for the price range it excells.Read full review...

So far, so good

Bought the red ones - delivered looking like brand new. Works well. Fast (with the right mem. card). Easy to use - I'm not camera proficient. I bought a second one for a friend because it was such a good deal.Read full review...

Love it! Great for a beginner!

I'm new to photography... I wanted a point and shoot that had a good zoom capability, while being decently priced. I chose the b500 over the p900, based on price and comparable features. I love the b500! Easy to use, great pics... the nikon snapbridge app works great too!Read full review...

Nikon camera

I luckily purchased this when Beach Camera was having an additional discount sale. It's a nice camera works well light weight I would have preferred the black color but it sold out quickly so I settled for the red I would like better in a more muted color but it gets the job doneRead full review...

Lovely camera - looks new!

I got this camera for my husband, who had his stolen. I thought I was getting him the same camera he had, but this one is far superior to the old one. He is overjoyed and loves his camera so much. It has 4X zoom, which he loves, and takes lovely photos, which show so much detail. I would definitely buy this camera again, and certainly would look for this seller to buy from. Great seller - great product!Read full review...
