Nikon Coolpix B500 Digital Camera with 40X Optical Zoom is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Doesn’t focus well and when the lens is completely out for a close up it isn’t steady. Not sure why it does that but wish I had returned it. Only thing I like about it is that it pairs with my iPhone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera but I did not receive the ac adapter I only gave 4 stars because in order to receive the missing charger I was going to have to send the entire thing back. Instead of waiting weeks for that I opted to buy the charger separately elsewhere. As far as the camera is concerned, awesome camera!! It takes great pictures even if you know nothing about photography. This only improves as you get to know your camera. I highly recommend this for the newbie who is looking to learn how to take great pics!! Battery life is pretty good. The wifi option is a winner (although the software can be more difficult to use than the camera itself). Bluetooth is also a great feature but the quality is better on wifi or just grabbing straight from memory card. I am really happy with this camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Zoom Point and Shoot This poor camera seems to be getting a bad rap. I purchased one and I absolutely love it! This is a great camera that takes awesome zoom pictures! The wifi/bluetooth feature can be a little frustrating at first, but if you work with it you will figure out how to use it without any problems. The camera will stay on (after turning it off) if you use the SnapBridge App to download the photos. I worked around this by turning off the camera and then "killing" the app on my smart device once all photos have been uploaded. That severs the wifi/bluetooth connection that is still running once the camera has been shut off. The zoom on this camera is pretty good, but I highly recommend using a tripod to steady it otherwise your photos can come out a little blurry due to movement. I took a picture of an Osprey from quite a distance away and the photo came out beautifuly! The only thing I wish this camera had was a viewfinder.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from defective I thought this was a great deal, purchased for a trip. Was so excited to learn how to use before trip....Well, the on/off button stays lighted after you turn off the camera. This drains the battery. I reached out to Nikon and the camera is defective. I must now pay to ship to Nikon for repair. And will not have the camera for my trip. Very disappointed, wondering if it had previously been returned, (box was not sealed) or refurbished.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I had high hopes for this B500 I got this Nikon B500 to alternate with a Panasonic Lumix FZ70 that I bought two years ago that doesn't have Bluetooth/wireless but is similar looking...that's about all that's similar. .........................The B500 is "ok" but the Bluetooth/wireless doesn't function well most of the time with my Samsung Galaxy S5 phone. I've had to unpair and repair several times. They pair fine and the camera finds the phone, whether Bluetooth or NFC, but it constantly disconnects, which uses up the batteries in no time. ...........................It won't work with regular AA NiMH rechargeable batteries so I've ordered the Nikon AA NiMH rechargeables and charger. In the meantime, I've been going through AA alkalines, which isn't bad if the Bluetooth would work or if I just use the camera for taking pictures and pull out the SD card to transfer photos, but with having to leave the camera on for long periods of time trying to get it transfer images to my phone, the batteries don't last. ......................................The automatic picture taking settings aren't all that great either. Very limited. I'll keep ditzing with it, but I probably just use the Panasonic FZ70 most of the time.
