Get closer to what matters

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

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

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.

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

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.
