Simply brilliant photos and videos

The COOLPIX B500 feels great in your hands, whether you're zooming in with its super telephoto NIKKOR glass lens or recording 1080p Full HD video using the flip-up LCD. And it takes all the work out of shooting beautiful photos and videos with its 16 megapixel low-light sensor, Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction (VR), easy menus and controls, fun creative effects and outstanding automatic operation. Plus, the whole time you're shooting, the COOLPIX B500 can be easily and seamlessly connected to a compatible smartphone through Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology for instant photo sharing and remote camera control. Simply brilliant.

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.

Always connected

Built-in Wi-Fi®, NFC and Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) maintain a constant connection between the Nikon's new SnapBridge app and your camera, so each shot you take automatically transfers to your smartphone or tablet for sharing.

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.

Master the camera in no time

The COOLPIX B500 is so easy to use, anyone can take great photos and videos with it. Just turn the camera on, point, shoot and marvel at the results. For maximum point-and-shoot convenience, select Easy Auto Mode.

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.

Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction (VR)

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.

Let the camera call the shots

Easily match your situation to one of 18 Scene Modes like Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, Sunset and more, and enjoy effortless great shots. Or, choose Easy Auto Mode and let the camera choose for you.

Intelligent autofocus

It's frustrating when a smartphone camera focuses on the wrong thing. With COOLPIX B500, Target Finding AF quickly determines your intended subject and puts the focus where it belongs—on your subject.

Shoot without interruption

The COOLPIX B500 is so energy efficient, you can take up to 600 shots on four regular AA alkaline batteries. Capture an entire vacation—and then some—on just one set of batteries.
