Photo Scenarios

If you're looking to simply use your camera to point-and-shoot everyday moments with an item or person as the subject matter, then the COOLPIX B500 is an easy recommendation for this.

While taking those action shots during the day's event, you'll be aiming to keep your subject matter in sharp focus while they're in motion. The Auto Focus Tracking capability that comes with this camera helps with this.

Whether it's golf or tennis and everything in-between, the Tracking Focus capability in this camera allows you maintain your subject as the centre of attention even while in motion. It's Continuous Shooting Mode also helps take multiple shots in a couple of seconds allowing you assess a set of options you can pick from.

Whether its for living or non-living things, using the Nikon COOLPIX B500 for aquatic photos is a treat.

Sometimes while on sightseeing or on a tour, you can only observe things from a distance. Which is why the zoom capability on this camera comes in handy in that situation.

In scenarios where animals are darting about, the burst mode on this camera comes in handy as well as it's Tracking Focus capability. The combination of these features and the 6.17 x 4.55 mm (mm) Image Sensor on this camera, provides you with a device that suits your wildlife photography needs - whether tranquil or dramatic.

Sometimes carrying cables about just so you can move your photos across the devices can be a pain. Good thing this particular model comes with Wi-Fi.

Whether you want to blend in, or have a camera that doesn’t attract unwanted attention, the basic design of the COOLPIX B500 fits the bill.
