Expand the boundaries of everyday photography with the 16-megapixel Nikon COOLPIX B500 Compact Camera, fitted with a high-performance 40x optical zoom and 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom. 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.


SEE THE BEAUTY IN THE DETAILS

The magic is in the details. Capture everyone with 40x optical zoom and 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom. By switching to macro mode, you can get as close as 1cm from the subject. An outstanding Vibration Reduction stabilises your shots even in the most precarious situation, with a shutter speed effect at approximately 3.0 stops faster and 40x optical zoom. Keep swift, speeding subjects in focus with Target Finding autofocus (AF) and Pre-focus AF. For moments that deserve more than a photo, the B500 offers Full HD (1080p/60i) video-recording and creative shooting modes such as Short Movie Show that combine multiple clips into 30-second films.


THE SMARTER WAY TO SHARE

Share your best shots with SnapBridge, a new feature that automatically downloads your images to your smart device via a constant Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connection. Once SnapBridge application is installed, you can easily activate the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi for wireless image transfer to compatible smart devices by using the SnapBridge application. BLE maintains a constant connection with minimal power, so you can continue shooting and sharing without draining your batteries too quickly. SnapBridge also allows your smart device to access your camera, even when the camera is switched off. It even automatically archives your pictures onto Nikon Image Space.

SnapBridge is now available for download on Google Play™ for Android™.  For iOS, SnapBridge will be available for download from the summer of 2016 on the App Store®.


40X OPTICAL ZOOM AND 80X DYNAMIC FINE ZOOM IN A COMPACT BODY

The 40x optical zoom takes you from 22.5mm* wide-angle to 900mm* telephoto, plus 80x** Dynamic Fine Zoom (up to 1800mm*), 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 optimise 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, 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 to be 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.


YOUR GREAT PHOTOS ARE IN YOUR SMARTPHONE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT

SnapBridge eliminates the barrier between your camera and smart device, through a combination of Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) technology and a dedicated app.* In addition to automatic picture transfer from camera to smart device thanks to the constant connection between the two devices, it also offers free, unlimited upload of thumbnails on the NIKON IMAGE SPACE cloud service.** It’s possible to embed location, date/time, and two pieces of credit information (i.e. copyright, comments, text and stamps). Plus, support for Wi-Fi® and NFC further expands wireless connectivity. Shoot yourself from a distance or get into group shots with camera remote control, then wirelessly share your images right away.


*Using this service requires installing the app SnapBridge app to the smart device prior to use. This can be downloaded from the application store of each smart device (free).

**Using this service requires customer registration (free).
