    More functionality needed.

    Posted by Robert Pfeifer on March 19, 2022

    This camera would be so much better if it had manual settings. Canon, Lumix, Sony, and even Kodak have similar cameras but are better because they have manual exposure settings. If you included manual exposure settings and the ability to shoot RAW this camera would be a best seller. As it is, it isn't even as good as a phone.

    COOLPIX B500....Almost a perfect camera

    Posted by Walter on November 10, 2021

    I own a Nikon D5100 and a COOLPIX B500 and while I love my D5100 the COOLPIX B500 has slowly become my go to camera. It is compact, light weight and travels well, plus it takes awesome photos. It has all the features I need and is easy to use. While I really enjoy using the B500 there are a few improvements that would make this a perfect camera. These would be a view finder, a fully articulating viewing screen like the D5--- series cameras have and moving the record button to a different location so it does not interfere with thumb placement on the rubber thumb rest pad. Other than that the B500mia almost perfect!

    We love our Nikon Coolpix B500!

    Posted by DELORES JOHNSON on June 3, 2021

    I don't understand some of the low reviews and the trouble they had. I bought this camera for my husband. We took a trip to Ireland...didn't know much about cameras or photography. This was the perfect camera!!! We love it so much that we are buying one for our grandson for his birthday this year. We were amazed at how well it did. We always carry an extra pack of batteries but we took almost 2,000 pictures before we had to put in new batteries. We have actually watched youtube videos to learn more about what this camera can do. We tried taking moon shots & did okay. Then we found something on the menu that says use this setting for moon shots. We got some fantastic moonshots. You can see craters and spots really clearly. Our pictures from Ireland were so good we have framed many and they look professional. We really can't say enough good things about the camera. Any trouble we have had was because of our lack of knowledge. After researching we were able to fix every problem.

    Great Camera for taking photos

    Posted by Thomas Molina on April 9, 2021

    I have had this great camera for about going on 2 weeks now and from the very start i have had the most enjoying expierence with it. I dont know all the features just yet and i am not a expert on handling the whole camera but of what i do know so far, I couldnt be happier with it. I already started downloading my pics from the app straight to my phone which i truly enjoy. I love taking photos of anything and anyone and so far my pics have been turning out great. Couldnt have made a better choice when i bought my camera. I LOVE IT!!!

    Image downloading issues.

    Posted by Michelle Phillips on March 14, 2021

    Me and my mom bought this camera as a birthday gift for my brother on 2019. Everything with the camera works perfectly, but he has had insane problems trying to download the pictures from SnapBridge. At this point his camera is not able to connect at all to the app, so he is not able to download any images. It would be greatly appreciated if somebody offered an actual solution because we have tried practically everything and nothing has worked. Also is there a way of downloading the pictures from the camera without using SnapBridge?

    Just ! Get it.

    Great Camera ! Coming from Smartphone or Compact Digital Camera. This camera is perfect to learn a step before jumping into DSLR. This camera has number of modes to react camera according to situation but since this camera doesn't give manual controls. Hence there are modes. Although Zoom 40x is pretty good to go far.

    It´s an amazing beginner camera!

    Posted by IloveThem on April 20, 2020

    For the time I have had the COOLPIX B500, I have loved almost everything about it. I´ve only been taking pictures for a couple of years now, so I´m still learning. The picture quality was really good but like other cameras the farther you go the more ´fuzzy´ it gets. The options that you get with it is a great way to really get to know how to take a great picture. The movable screen has saved my on many occasions with taking a picture on a difficult angle. The only thing I had problems with is sometimes my camera won´t turn on. It has happened to me more than I like but other than that I´ve really enjoyed this product. I recommend this for anyone who is getting into photography or wanting to try it out.
