Up high looking down, on the ground and all around, creative angles are fun and easy with the 921,000–dot 3.0–inch tilting LCD screen. Professional looking images are a snap with Easy Auto Mode – just point, shoot and voila! Amazing photos with just a click. Easy Auto Mode automatically optimizes camera settings for each shot whether it's day, night, light, dark or a challenging shooting situation – the B500 takes all the work out of beautiful photography. Video is recorded in stunning 1080p Full HD with stereo sound, 4–Axis Hybrid and Vibration Reduction, and fun features like Superlapse Movie. Intelligent Autofocus finds your subject and accurately places the focus where you want it.

    Simply Brilliant Photos And Videos

    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.

    Get Closer To What Matters

    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.

    Always Connected

    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.

    Enjoy The View

    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.

    Master The Camera In No Time

    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.

    Make Movies That Amaze

    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.
