      Answer

      The Nikon COOLPIX B500 digital camera allows you to capture video in Full HD 1080p quality with stereo sound and Hybrid Vibration Reduction (VR) to counteract shaky hands. There's even a Short Movie Show mode which helps to combine multiple videos into one thrilling, fast-motion sequence movie. In addition, this easy-to-use, point and shoot camera has a Creative Mode that lets you apply different effects to your video to really help them stand out. It is recommended you use an approved memory card with a speed of 6 or more for videos.

    Does this replace the L840 ?   (2 Answers)

    I am eager to purchase if so

      Answer

      While it does share a lot of the features that the Nikon COOLPIX L840 has, the Nikon B-500 actually forms a new line of startup cameras. The B-500 combines the ease of a point and shoot with the control that comes with a PSAM dial. This model is equipped with a 40x Optical Zoom and an 80x Dynamic Fine Zoom that allows you to capture moments normally not within your reach. You can then choose from the camera's Built-in Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth options to send them wirelessly. This camera also has a new Superlapse Movie feature, which can change a regular video into an exciting fast-motion clip.

  • Question
    does this camera have a viewfinder?   (2 Answers)

      Answer

      Sadly, it does not. The optical viewfinder has all but disappeared except on the high-end DSLR cameras. The 3" LCD display seems to do a good job and I am able to see images in bright sunlight. The LCD on the B500 has the ability to tilt down so you can see what you are snapping even if you are holding it above your head. I'm kind of short so I am looking forward to using this feature.

          Answer

          The COOLPIX B500 requires the use of Nikon's Snapbridge app to sync with any smart device, whether iOS or Android based. The iOS based app will be available for download in August. You will then be able to use the camera's bluetooth or wireless connection to sync with your iPhone.
