The red COOLPIX B500 Digital Camera from Nikon features a 16MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor for high-resolution imagery as well as Full HD 1080p video. This sensor's construction utilizes a stacked backside-illuminated design to improve clarity and image quality when working in dimly-lit conditions. The 40x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm equivalent focal range of 22.5-900mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of environments. Further subject magnification can be achieved using the 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom that effectively doubles the camera's reach. The lens also features Vibration Reduction to help reduce the appearance of camera shake when shooting at the longer zoom lengths or with longer shutter speeds. A 3" 921k-dot tilting LCD screen allows image composition from unique angles, as well as image review and menu navigation.

question

Can the b500 be set to take widescreen photos?
Asked by: Anonymous
According to page 105 of the Nikon Coolpix B500 Digital Camera's Reference Manual, the aspect ratios (horizontal to vertical) available from the camera would be 4:3 (default), 16:9 (widescreen), and 1:1 (square). You may choose the image size and quality (and as such, the aspect ratio) as indicated on page 105 by entering the shooting mode, then pressing the MENU button --> Image Mode --> OK button and selecting your chosen image size.

It can shoot Full HD Video, if that is what you are referring to for film. However it does not shoot stills on to film, it is a digital camera.

Nikon COOLPIX B500 Digital Camera does not have a built in view finder. If you need this feature on a Nikon Bridge camera you will need to step up to the Nikon COOLPIX P950 Digital Camera.
