    Photo review button location on B500 camera

    Posted by NMphotog on July 26, 2019

    The photo review button is inconveniently placed because it is easily activated by inadvertently touching it when shooting photos or when just handling the camera. This button is located in a better place on my Nikon DSLR cameras.

    This camera does exactly what I needed it to do my only complaint is that it is difficult to tell when the camera is off so I have burned through some batteries.

    I did a lot of research before I purchased. I decided to get a bridge camera because I was not purchasing just for vacation pictures but to dabble in creative photography. It is a little bulky for that reason. The telephoto len is great. To get the most from it you really have to experiment with the camera. So if you are looking for a basic point and shoot this is not for you. When you use the telephoto len to the max the picture quality decreases and the ´´stabilizer´´ slows meaning it takes time to focus. If it is a small target far away the quality is not great. But for close up targets or large distant subjects it is great. I recommend on those grounds.

    Great features... great looking camera... great value!!!

    Posted by Sirknightday on June 7, 2019

    I had been contemplating getting a new better camera for a long time and had been eyeing this one during that time... I was attracted to the look of it and the features, especially the incredible zoom, and it´s reasonable price. All of those expectations were met and them some. My wife and I like bird watching and this camera does a great job zooming in and grabbing them! I am enjoying it very much! Nice product!

    Everything you wanted in a ´point and shoot´ and more.

    Posted by JOinAZ on April 19, 2019

    The Nikon Coolpix B 500 is a great camera for those wanting something that is easy to use for both professional pictures and for simple ´point and shoot´ type photography. One of the things that is important to me is that a camera has the capability to switch from settings that are point and shoot to settings that are professional. This camera does that. It has a quality lens and focuses well. It is also easy to hold in my hand and I don´t feel like I am going to drop it due to lack of grip.
    The flash is easy to use and it isn´t a heavy piece of equipment. Settings are fairly easy to set up as well.
