The Nikon Coolpix B500 truly is a camera for travelers. Because the camera has a 40x optical zoom, there's a lot of freedom to choose your picture frame when photographing a landscape, for example. Capture a razor-sharp portrait, thanks to the autofocus with face recognition. The powerful image stabilization allows for easy handheld photography or recording, even while walking. The camera performs well in poor lighting, thanks to the maximum ISO value of 6,400. Tricky angles can be easily captured with the tiltable screen. The camera has an integrated WiFi function. This means you can wirelessly send your recordings to your friends via the Nikon SnapBridge app. In addition, the app lets you operate your camera remotely using your smart device.
