The Nikon Coolpix B500 features 16 million pixels which have the potential to capture finer details of your subject like texture, etc. The high resolution sensor makes every individual person in a group photo stand out.
Full High Definition Videos
The camera supports full high definition videos which can capture the moving subject with great clarity and sharpness. 1080i resolution of the video can record subjects with a good depth which looks amazing when seen on your Full HD television or large screen home theatre systems.
40X Optical Zoom
The zoom lens stretches from 22.5mm to 900mm (35mm equivalent) to provide you access to almost any object you want without thinking twice about its distance from you. You can shoot parties, landscapes, portraits and even birds using the same camera. Controlling the zoom using slide switch on the left side is easy when holding camera with both hands. Superior ED glass elements help you extract more from each image by controlling the chromatic aberration and reproducing natural colours.
The VR (vibration reduction) lens helps you keep the camera steady while aiming and capture stunning images even in low light conditions. Movies benefit from both optical and electronic stabilisation to give you smooth video output free of any sudden camera shake.
3.0" LCD Capacitive Touch Screen
3.0" (7.5cm) large monitor has many advantages in shooting and previewing you images. The LCD screen can be tilted up to 90 degree or down till 85 degrees. The flexible viewing angles help you aim at your subject holding camera high in your hands or bring it down to your toes for that low level perspective. The 921k dot LCD also has an anti-reflection coating which helps you in stress free viewing in by cutting down the reflection of any incident light.
Bluetooth, WiFi and NFC options in the camera enable you to connect it to your smart mobile device to control your camera or share images through internet. Remotely controlling your camera over wireless connection gives you freedom from handholding it and focus on your creative project. Camera can obtain location information from your smartphone and store it right into image's exif metadata. This can be useful in cataloguing them for an easy retrieval later.
The creative self expression goes a step further with the use of Creative Mode. 12 glamour retouch options and other presets help you personalise the pictures. All this can be done within the camera without any extra software.
