About this product

The Nikon 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 . It takes all the work out of shooting beautiful photos and videos with its 16 megapixel low-light sensor, Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction, easy menus and controls, fun creative effects and outstanding automatic operation. Plus, the whole time you're shooting you can be seamlessly connected to a compatible smartphone through Bluetooth for instant photo sharing and remote control.

Few shots are too far away for the 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.

Lens-shift vibration reduction (vr) keeps your shots steady—crucial at such long distances—and a 16-megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor captures every detail.

The 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. Reviewing and sharing your creations is a pleasure, too—every shot and video looks fantastic on the high resolution display.
