Description

Expand the boundaries of everyday photography with the 16-megapixel COOLPIX B500, fitted with a high performance 40x optical zoom*1 and 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom*2. See the world from new angles with a flexible 3-inch tilting LCD monitor and share it all with SnapBridge, a new feature that connects the camera to your smart device. Experience these powerful features in a compact size.

40X OPTICAL ZOOM AND 80X DYNAMIC FINE ZOOM IN A COMPACT BODY
The 40x optical zoom takes you from 22.5 mm* wide-angle to 900 mm* telephoto, plus 80x** Dynamic Fine Zoom (up to 1800 mm*), allowing you to capture a wide range of images from wide-angle vistas to close-ups of distant subjects. At any zoom range, optical VR (Vibration Reduction) helps you take steady pictures. Dedicated Bird watching and Moon modes make it easy to optimize nature shots without complicated operation. *35mm format equivalent. **Magnification of Dynamic Fine Zoom is calculated from the maximum wide-angle position of optical zoom.

CAPTURE THE MOMENT FROM ABOVE AND BELOW
Shoot from so many interesting angles and positions with the 7.5cm/3-in., approx. 921k-dot TFT LCD tilting monitor, plus count on clear vivid viewing even under the sun. Use high-angle to shoot over people’s heads at weddings and games, and low-angle for shots from a child’s or pet’s perspective.

SUPERIOR USABILITY FOR A WORRY-FREE EXPERIENCE
Stay in charge as your subject or situation changes; the 10-position Mode dial offers instant access to the shooting mode you want. There is also a Snap-back zoom button to keep you from losing sight of your subject, and Side zoom control so you can concentrate on what you’re shooting. To set the information you want displayed on your photo, just hit the Display button. Any function is easier to use because of the self-explanatory Help display. All of this is packed in a compact body that’s easy to take along with you.

KEEP ON GOING WITH R6/AA-SIZE BATTERIES
Never worry about running out of power because the camera runs on R6/AA-size batteries you can buy just about anywhere. Thanks to low power consumption design, this camera is able to deliver approx. 600 shots using fresh alkaline batteries so it can accompany you on trips and excursions.

CREATIVITY IS BUILT-IN BUT YOU CAN TAKE THE CREDIT
Have an easy time taking creative pictures just the way you want, using Creative mode; it offers nine built-in preset modes that you can choose in-camera while checking out how they look with four different effects applied to it. When you decide on a mode, press the shutter and the camera automatically takes five images — the original plus four with effects applied. In other words, you have a choice of 36 image options in total. A great way to take nightscapes is with Multiple Exp. Lighten function, which compares multiple images and automatically composites the brightest parts to express light paths such as fireworks or streaming traffic.

SHOOT MOVIES THAT WILL AMAZE YOUR AUDIENCE
Shoot beautiful Full HD 1080/60i movies of parties and events, with 4-Axis Hybrid VR assuring a stable image even if you’re moving around with the camera. Relive wonderful memories through images and music with Short movie show — it stitches together multiple video files plus Special effects and 4 types of soundtracks to create a 30-second movie.

Note: Full HD refers to this camera’s ability to record movies in 1920 x 1080 format.
