RM 1,168.00


Expand the boundaries of everyday photography with the 16-megapixel COOLPIX B500, fitted with a high performance 40x optical zoom*1 and 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom*2. 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 every one with 40x optical zoom*1 and 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom*2. 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*1. 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 combines 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*4 for wireless image transfer on compatible smart devices by using the SnapBridge application. BLE maintains 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*3.

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

CAPTURE NIGHT IN A NEW LIGHT

Master night scenes with the new Multiple Exposure Lighten feature that perfectly seizes fireworks and stars. In this mode, the B500 takes multiple shots at intervals then composites them to create impressive images of light paths.

PUSH CREATIVITY TO ITS LIMITS

Express yourself your way with the new Creative mode. Choose from an array of presets and let the camera do the rest, so all you have to do is click the shutter-release button. Personalise your shots with 12 Glamour Retouch options and make your adrenaline-fueled shots even more thrilling.

DESIGNED TO EMPOWER YOU

At approximately 542g and measuring 113.5mm (width) x 78.3mm (height) x 94.9mm (depth) without projections, the B500 comes with a comfortable grip to shoot with enhanced stability. Intuitive control features such as the mode dial and Side Zoom Control means you will always be ready for the next photo opportunity.
