NIKKOR 40X OPTICAL ZOOM
Capture all the action at sporting events, shoot distant subjects in crisp detail in urban landscapes, or take astoundingly clear shots of the moon and night sky with the NIKKOR 40x optical zoom lens, extendable to 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom¹. Trusted NIKKOR optics offer exceptional performance, so you can enjoy a powerful lens that covers from wide-angle 22.5 mm to through to super-telephoto 900 mm angles of view (equivalent focal lengths in 35 mm) in the Nikon COOLPIX B500.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE VIBRATION REDUCTION (VR)
Camera stability is the key to achieving clear images. High-performance VR effectively suppresses the blur caused by camera shake, even at full 40x zoom, so sharp shots are guaranteed. The Lens shift VR effect is equivalent to a 3.0 stop increase in shutter speed (based on CIPA Standard, at the maximum telephoto position) and the easy-hold grip helps to keep your camera stable too.
Customise your shooting experience by setting your favourite functions like Auto, Scene Mode or Sports in the mode dial at the top of your camera for easy access. Then it’s just simple intuitive operation to change settings, making shooting a breeze.
ULTRA-SMOOTH FULL HD MOVIES
Say goodbye to blurry videos forever when you can shoot Full HD (1080p/60i) movies with the help of high-performance 4-axis Hybrid Vibration Reduction (VR) that combines Lens-shift and Electronic VR to combat camera shake and effectively reduce blur – even at full 40x optical zoom. Impress your friends with crystal clear movies of family celebrations, concerts, architecture or wildlife, all shot in clear detail no matter how distant your subject – and save stills during movie recording.
COMFORTABLE GRIP, PORTABLE SIZE
Your camera is ergonomically designed for a stable grip, even though its body is extremely portable – approximately 113.5 (W) x 78.3 (H) x 94.9 (D) mm – and it fits comfortably in your hand. It’s classically styled, with high performance and low weight too, weighing in at around 542 g, including batteries and SD card.
TARGET FINDING AF
Focus on your subject instantly with Target finding AF technology that analyses your shooting conditions to rapidly identify your subject. Just aim your camera at the intended subject and it will instantly predict where focus should be acquired. Active focus areas are set automatically in relation to the size of the subject, so your images will always be in clear focus. Target finding AF works as well with subjects found at the centre of frame as those off-centre, and is also effective in shooting smaller subjects like food and flowers.
