Get stunning image quality the Simple way with the Coolpix B500. Capture life from a creative angle with the large 3.0” 921K Dot LCD Tilting Monitor. A Nikkor 40x optical zoom with Vibration Reduction and 16-Megapixel sensor allows you to get to close to what really matters and capture distant subjects in fine detail. Built for convenient, stress-free shooting - Easy Auto Mode - turn on, select and shoot away whilst the camera automatically optimises the cameras settings for each shot. The B500 is packed with features to help you whilst shooting and is so easy to use, now anyone can take stunning images.


Simple and Intuitive Operation with Superior Image Quality
Enjoy ease of operation with superb results guaranteed, so you can concentrate on creative composition. Frequently used functions are at your fingertips via the mode dial and a host of features make it simple to achieve impressive Full HD movies and outstanding photos of your travels or hobbies. With 16-Megapixels and a highly efficient Backside illumination CMOS sensor you’ll be shooting the kind of high-quality images you’ve always wanted to achieve.

Nikkor 40x Optical Zoom
Capture all the action at sporting events, shoot distant subjects in crisp detail in urban landscapes or take astoundingly clear shots of the moon and night sky with the Nikkor 40x optical zoom lens, which can be further extended to 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom. Trusted Nikkor optics offer exceptional performance, so you can enjoy a powerful lens that covers from wide-angle 22.5mm through to super-telephoto 900mm angles of view in a compact camera.

High-Performance Vibration Reduction  
Camera stability is the key to achieving clear images. High-performance VR effectively suppresses the blur caused by camera shake, even at full 40x zoom, so sharp shots are guaranteed. The Lens shift VR effect is equivalent to a 3.0 stop increase in shutter speed and the easy-hold grip helps to keep your camera stable too.

SnapBridge maintains a constant, low-power connection between your camera and your smartphone or tablet to give you easy control over your photographic life. Now you can sync shots to your smart device while you shoot, and share Nikon-quality images in an instant. You can also control key camera functions via your phone, keep your camera on time and up-to-date, and more.

Mode Dial
Customise your shooting experience by setting your favourite functions like Auto, Scene Mode or Sports in the mode dial at the top of your camera for easy access. Then it’s just simple intuitive operation to change settings, making shooting a breeze.

Ultra-Smooth Full HD Movies
Say goodbye to blurry videos forever when you can shoot Full HD movies with the help of high-performance 4-axis Hybrid Vibration Reduction that combines Lens-shift and Electronic VR to combat camera shake and effectively reduce blur – even at full 40x optical zoom. Impress your friends with crystal clear movies of family celebrations, concerts, architecture or wildlife, all shot in clear detail no matter how distant your subject – and save stills during movie recording.

Large 3.0” LCD Tilting Monitor
Enjoy ease of shooting with tilting monitor, making creative composition simple and ensuring that you know exactly what’s in frame. Shoot stills and movies in comfort from a wide range of angles, with flexibility for every type of subject. The high-definition display consumes very little power, so you’ll have plenty of battery life to keep shooting when you need it most. It offers sharp colour reproduction and superb visibility even when viewed from a diagonal direction. Anti-reflection coating and anti-fingerprint acrylic coating ensure clear viewing at all times, and the 5-level brightness adjustment function gives superior visibility while playing back images on sunnier days.

Comfortable Grip, Portable Size
Your camera is ergonomically designed for a stable grip, even though its body is extremely portable – approximately 113.5 (W) x 78.3 (H) x 94.9 (D) mm – and it fits comfortably in your hand. It’s classically styled, with high performance and low weight too, weighing in at around 542 g, including batteries and SD card.

Target Finding AF
Focus on your subject instantly with Target finding AF technology that analyses your shooting conditions to rapidly identify your subject. Just aim your camera at the intended subject and it will instantly predict where focus should be acquired. Active focus areas are set automatically in relation to the size of the subject, so your images will always be in clear focus. Target finding AF works as well with subjects found at the centre of frame as those off-centre, and is also effective in shooting smaller subjects like food and flowers.
