Nikon B700 overview

  • 1Description

Pairing a long-reaching zoom with a high-resolution sensor, the COOLPIX B700 Digital Camera from Nikon spans a range of multimedia assets for both stills shooting and video recording. Based on a 20.2MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor, notable image quality is possible with enhanced sensitivity for working in a range of lighting conditions. The sensor and image processor also afford quick continuous shooting up to 5 fps for working with moving subjects, as well as UHD 4K video recording at 30p for clear, high-resolution movie playback. Balancing these imaging attributes is an expansive 60x optical zoom lens that provides a 24-1440mm equivalent range, covering wide-angle to super telephoto focal lengths, and is complemented by Dual Detect Vibration Reduction to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharp handheld shooting. An ergonomic body design reminiscent of a DSLR also benefits handling, as well as the incorporation of both a 921k-dot electronic viewfinder and rear 3.0" 921k-dot vari-angle LCD. For wireless sharing and remote control of the camera from a mobile device, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC is supported as well as Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity. More than just a long-zoom point-and-shoot, the B700 balances both stills and video recording assets, along with intuitive handling and file sharing components.

20.2MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS Sensor
A high-resolution 20.2MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor affords impressive image quality with enhanced sensitivity to benefit working in difficult lighting conditions, along with the ability to record in the NRW raw format for expanded post-production capabilities. The sensor also affords quick performance throughout the camera system, including a continuous shooting rate of up to 5 fps.
60x Optical Zoom Lens
A wide-ranging NIKKOR 60x optical zoom lens provides a 24-1440mm equivalent focal length range that covers wide-angle to super telephoto perspectives, and its range can effectively be doubled through the use of Dynamic Fine Zoom for a total 120x zoom magnification. Dual Detect Vibration Reduction balances this awesome length by compensating for the effects of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Additionally, the lens' optical design incorporates extra-low dispersion glass to minimize chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range for cleaner, clearer image quality.
UHD 4K Video Recording
In addition to stills recording, UHD 4K video recording is supported in both 30p and 25p frame rates for clips up to 8 minutes long. Face-priority autofocus is available during recording to maintain sharp focus on detected subjects and 5-axis Hybrid Vibration Reduction can be used to suppress the effects of camera shake that occur while moving when recording. Additionally, rounding out the movie feature-set, the built-in stereo zoom mic automatically changes directivity according to the zoom position for more refined audio quality.
Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
  • The ergonomic body design resembles a DSLR and incorporates a large grip for more stable shooting.
  • A 921k-dot electronic viewfinder is available for clear eye-level shooting, which is especially beneficial when working in bright conditions.
  • The rear 3.0" 921k-dot LCD features a vari-angle design to support working from a range of shooting angles.
  • An HDMI port permits connecting the camera directly to an HDTV or 4K TV for high-resolution playback.

Nikon B700 reviews

COOLPIX B700 Digital Camera is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Nikon B700! I am enjoying my new Nikon B700. I have used it for birdwatching, sports photography and landscape photography. It has a variety of scene settings that makes it easy and mostly automatic to take photos of the moon, sunsets, birds, etc. The 60X zoom and vibration reduction has resulted in great shots at maximum magnification, even when hand-held. The results have been superb so far. You can also set it up with your smartphone so that you can use your smartphone as a view finder and shutter button when using a tripod. It has a few drawbacks. The lens will not take filters (e.g. polarizing) and it takes a while to get to know and use the camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it so far I have a Coolpix 510, which I love, and Coolpix 900. I've not explored many of the capabilities so far of the B700. It's lighter-weight than the 900, allows the manual type settings of the other two. The 60x zoom is in-between the range of the other two, have planned to replace the 510 with the B700. The RAW option was much of the reason for getting this one. The burst mode seems to work very well, writing to the SD card quicker than the other two models. One disappointment so far is the tripod connection is next to the battery opening, so the B700 will have to be unhooked from the tripod mount to change the battery or card. This had been fixed on the 900.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent point-n-shoot Camera! I replaced my Nikon COOLPIX P510 that died(dropped, too many times), and got this to replace it. It was like a 4+ year newer version, and much better of the old one with many more, new, and better features(better optical zoom, wifi, bluetooth, takes pics faster, better in low light than last one, etc). As well features I would have like to have gotten, but would have had to spend $200 more for an older camera(different Time lapse Video options, and i would lose some in the new one if i bought the old one), I found out about when I used it that are not mentioned in the description, even on Nikon's site when I looked, so was very happy with it, and then some.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't set up SnapBridge I had been anticipating the arrival of this camera since last spring. It finally became available at the end of October. Mine arrived and took very good photos. I had only taken about 10 however, when I tried to link the SnapBridge app to the new B700. No luck. I called Nikon multiple times, and the last time spent more than an hour with several different levels of technical support. No luck. They asked me to send it in for repair. I called B&H back and they recommended not keeping problem camera. They suggested I return it for a new one. I have done that and the new one is on the way. I hope the new one connects readily. If not, I will be shopping for a different model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Rounded Camera Considered a Bridge Camera...better than a Point and Shoot and yet not a professional camera. This is perfect for any age assuming you are not a proffessional. Took it to Dubai and was more than please with the results including the 60x zoom. Going to Africa this June, so it was good preparation for that safari. Loved that I did not have to add a new lens. An excellent all around great Camera which I highly recommend. You will not be disappointed.mj

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent image quality can come out of this bridge camera... I'm into image quality especially concern about the sharpness and color of the images coming out of a camera. This camera delivers when the lighting condition is adequate, in low light you can also get that when it's mounted on a tripod. The quality of the images cannot compare to those coming out of my DSLRs (D700 and D810),� but decent enough; and I believe it's among the top of its class (bridge and point-n-shoot cameras). The zoom is powerful, but taking the picture hand held in maximum optical zoom (1440mm, 35mm equivalent) does not produce good output even in high shutter speed, I would recommend using a tripod - in this case the digital zoom (2880mm) comes out surprisingly acceptable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Where were you when I needed you! After years (40 or more) of carrying full-size Nikons on group travel tours, winding up most of the time with grab shots, the weight of such cameras around my neck was becoming a hassle. I tried a number of point and shoots, but never felt that I had the controls that I wanted. Many newer small cameras only had viewing screens--no optical view-finder. These just never felt right. Then along came the B700, with almost all the functionality and control of the big boys, and with a powerful zoom lens--at a fraction of the weight. A dream come true, and I'm not looking back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong contender for intended purpose I have always carried around a small camera to photograph a bird (my passion) or other interesting subject that I came upon. Previous cameras included a Olympus SZ-30MR and a Pentax XG-1 that I just purchased. The Pentax had potential, but using the viewfinder was difficult and the autofocus was slow. Although I got some great shots out of that camera, more times than not I had to discard way to many to get that great one, mostly due to poor image stabilization. I considered the P900, but when the B700 came out I chose that one because it is smaller, shoots RAW and produces 20 megapixel photos. I've only had this camera for a few days, but its easy to learn and has plenty of features to maximize the output. However, I almost always use the AUTO setting on the camera given how I use it. But it is easy to change parameters without having to go into the menus using the 2 fn buttons provided. For example, to change from single shot to multiple shot for moving birds. It has a side zoom button and a side Zoom back button which is very useful for photographing small birds in trees as you can re-compose the subject easily. It also has a Birdwatching Mode which I've not explored yet. The camera focuses quickly, and writes multiple shots to the card very quickly with almost no delay. The viewfinder is very good as is the image stabilization-clearly MUCH better than the XG-1So far. I've not see any vignetting. I have't set-up the SnapBridge or WiFi connectivity yet as that's not really part of my workflow, but I will certainly try it. I have it set Airplane mode to conserve battery. I also haven't tried the movie Mode, but again, that is NOT why I bought the camera. I've attached the first few images from the camera-set on auto, didn't read the manual first. Images were just cropped. I think they are more than acceptable almost on par with my big boy camera with the big boy lens. (Nikon D500 with Sigma 150-600 mm lens)
