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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to operate, excellent value I used to use non-digital SLR cameras, had a couple of point and shot digital, but wanted to upgrade. Had no problem learning to use all functions in the first couple of hours. Do order additional memory card at the same time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Camera Ever I have been dealing with cameras and photography since 1981. This is the WORST camera ever. Don't waste your money on it. It is impossible to access or download photos from it. I've tried everything, and I know what I'm doing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for beginners! This was my first Camera purchase after using my mothers a Bit to much and realizing my full interest in photography. I knew very little about cameras, But this was very straight forward to understand and learn, as well as very versatile. Ive used it for some Macro, Some family and pets, Would very much recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I intend to buy one of these cameras soon although I would like one that the lens can be removed and a different one used, but do not know how to tell the difference from a fixed lens to one that can be replaced. Is there a sure fire way of determining the difference. Thanking you in advance for any and all response's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from B500 very nice upgade for beginners! Bought this for Christmas gift for my daughter. The wifi setup to the app was easy and works well...nice remote feature. My daughter took some really wonderful pictures of our dog playing in the snow...the bright snow did not wash out the pics...I would definitely recommend for a beginner photo enthusiast as a bridge to DSLR. The fact that it runs on AA batteries is + for my daughter who will undoubtedly forget to charge her batt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera Nikon B 500 will work wonders with you when you read the manual carefully and experiment with settings. The settings are simple and automatic. Shoot and snap with auto mode. Blur the background and get depth of the focus object with scene mode by using zoom. With night landscape setting get good pictures without flash. Use micro setting for closeups. Be patient when using zoom. You will have to hold your hands steady. The best camera for its price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really easy to use for an experienced camera This camera is really advanced but so easy for a first timer like myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect, great zoom & video A great camera in a handsome skin. Positives- awesome zoom, cool photo transfer to mobile device (although it can be slow), great pictures, multiple "modes" for varying types of shooting, price, feels great in hand, and great videos. Negatives- neck strap is too short, when zoomed far away (optical only) it was nearly impossible to get a clear shot at a recent graduation, video mode did just fine. If you're not technically inclined I would opt for a simpler camera as this one has tons of technical options (bluetooth and wifi specifically).
