Nikon B500 overview

  • 1Description

Comprising the essentials needed to begin shooting, the black Nikon COOLPIX B500 Digital Camera with Free Accessory Kit from B&H bundles the long-zoom camera with a 16GB SDHC memory card.

  • Nikon COOLPIX B500 Digital Camera (Black)

    The black 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.

    Built-in Bluetooth low energy (BLE), Wi-Fi, and NFC connectivity allow the B500 to pair with a compatible smart device using the Nikon SnapBridge app. Images can then be easily sent to the connected smartphone or tablet, and from there shared on favorite social media sites. Designed for simple, stress-free operation with point and shoot capability for both still imagery and video, convenience is maximized by selecting from among 18 scene modes or using the Easy Auto Mode, which automatically optimizes the camera's settings even while shooting under challenging lighting conditions.

    16MP Image Sensor
    The 16MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor features stacked backside-illuminated technology to enhance its low-light capabilities. 7.4 fps of continuous shooting is possible along with an ISO range of 125-6400.
    40x NIKKOR VR Zoom Lens
    The B500 has a 40x NIKKOR ED VR zoom lens with a focal length range of 4.0-160mm, giving a 35mm equivalent of 22.5-900mm, which covers wide-angle to telephoto shots with a maximum aperture range of f/3.0-6.5. It features three ED lens elements for improving sharpness, color, and image quality, as well as Vibration Reduction to reduce the appearance of camera shake.
    3" LCD Screen
    The B500's tilting 3" 921k-dot TFT-LCD monitor has an anti-reflective coating as well as 5-level brightness adjustment; making it easy to compose images from unique angles, monitor video recording, and navigate menus.
    Bluetooth low energy (BLE), Wi-Fi, and NFC with SnapBridge App
    When paired with a compatible smart device using the Nikon SnapBridge app, built-in Bluetooth low energy (BLE), Wi-Fi, and NFC connectivity allow the B500 to quickly and easily send photos for sharing on social media sites. Upload photos on the go, even in remote locations, or use a smartphone or tablet to control the camera.
    Full HD Video
    Record Full HD 1080p video at 30 fps with stereo sound. 4-Axis Hybrid Vibration Reduction (VR) keeps videos steady. Transform a video into a fast-motion sequence with the Superlapse Movie feature, great for first-person perspectives, sports moments, video tours, and more.
    Easy Exposure Control
    Simple, stress-free operation with point and shoot capability for both still imagery and video. The Smart Portrait System utilizes multiple features such as Face Priority AF, Skin Softening, Blink Warning, and more to enhance images of people; while Target Finding AF quickly determines the intended subject and maintains focus. Choose from among 18 scene modes or Easy Auto Mode, which automatically optimizes the camera's settings, even while shooting under challenging lighting conditions.
    Built-In Flash
    When shooting in low-light or backlit situations, the pop-up flash can act as a fill light to produce well-exposed images.
    Energy Efficient
    Take up to 600 shots on four regular AA alkaline batteries. Capture an entire vacation and more on just one set of batteries.

Nikon B500 reviews

COOLPIX B500 Digital Camera with Free Accessory Kit (Black) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My third one I bought one of these cameras three years ago for a trip to Africa and I didn't want to worry about changing lenses on a regular basis. I had done this on a previous trip and missed a lot of pictures as I had the wrong lens on at a given time. Two years later I bought two more for my ll year old grand kids (twins) to take on a trip. They loved the camera and so when my 10 year old asked for a camera for his birthday this was the only choice. To date all but one of my five grand kids have the Nikon Coolpix B500. Guess what the youngest one will get for her next birthday. The camera takes great pictures and easy to operate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A lot to like - some things to hate I didn't want to take my full camera set-up�on my vacation to Australia, so I got the Nikon, expecting it to be an intuitive point-and-shoot camera with a few extra whistles and bells. It takes generally good photos, especially outdoors with sunlight. However, the auto-focus often lost its mind when the lighting was dim. The camera has infrared focus assist, so I'm not sure what the problem was - I often had to mess around to try to get the focus assist to turn on. I don't like the menu structure, but my standard equipment is Sony (which many people also dislike). I am used to the menu showing all settings and graying out those settings not applicable to the current mode. Nikon, however, only shows settings applicable to the current mode. This made it much more difficult for me to browse around and learn what I had control over. You set the camera mode with the dial on top of the camera (e.g. night landscape, night portrait, backlighting, sports, etc). One of the modes on the dial was listed as "scene", and when it was selected the display showed "Portrait'. At first, I mistakenly assumed those were the only modes available, however, I discovered that if you go to Menu while in "scene" mode you have access to a whole list of additional modes. I should have figured that out sooner, but it strikes me as counter-intuitive to have some modes on the dial and some accessible only through the menu. The camera supports a "Night Portrait" mode which has two settings in the menu: hand-held and tripod. However, hand-held is totally inappropriate for hand holding. It takes two flash photos and attempts to merge them into a single image. First, I don't understand why it is taking two flash photos, and second, the delay between the two photos is such that the two images will never line-up. Essentially you get a double exposure with ghost images. So, all-in-all I'd say it is a pretty good camera with sub-optimal low light focusing and a less-than-intuitive menu structure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera/Great Package First off, the camera is fantastic. �Compact, yet substantial in your hands. �The optional setting are great, and the "Auto" mode adjusts to each situation very nicely. �The package available with the case and SD card �are well worth the price. �Great value all around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for infrequent photos Bought this because for infrequent use (family holiday get togethers, occasional birthdays) rechargeable batteries are always dead. This takes 4 AA batteries so is always ready to go. It is a decent super-zoom. A bit heavy and bulky compared to a smaller camera but it takes a good picture.
Date published: 2018-10-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coolpix B500 - Sweet! We just recently received our 3 new Nikon Coolpix B500 cameras with free accessory kits. It was really easy to setup so the staff can start using them. My people really appreciate being able to use the regular batteries over the square ones.
