About the Product
Nikon COOLPIX B700 Digital Camera From the Manufacturer: The power to capture and create. The first time you hold the COOLPIX B700, you'll know it's an exceptional camera. Its DSLR-style design, including a PSAM mode dial, puts key controls where you want them and feels great in your hands. The first time you zoom in with it, you'll wonder if any shot will ever be out of reach again. Subjects barely visible to the naked eye come into tight focus, held steady by cutting-edge Vibration Reduction technology. Use that power to capture stunning 20.2 megapixel RAW images, 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) videos with stereo sound or 5 FPS high-speed sequences in nearly any light.
The zoom power of the COOLPIX P900 is nothing short of spectacular. This is 83x (2000mm equivalent) optical zoom—more than any Nikon COOLPIX yet. Advanced shooters will appreciate the outstanding image quality and DSLR styling—a sure grip, a swiveling Vari-angle display, a high-resolution Electronic Viewfinder that turns on automatically when lifted to your eye, even a PSAM mode control dial. Those who simply want great photos and Full HD videos without any fuss will appreciate the point-and-shoot ease and long battery life—up to 360 shots per charge! And everyone will appreciate the built-in Wi-Fi® and Near Field Communication technology (NFC)** connectivity which wirelessly connects the COOLPIX P900 to a compatible smartphone or tablet for instant photo sharing and remote camera control. Change the way you see, capture and share the world.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Nikon COOLPIX B700 Digital Camera
  • Has the look and feel of a DSLR camera, but is half the size making it more portable and cheaper to carry around.
  • Great quality! Easy to use for a beginner and as I advance this camera will grow with me. Love the size and bird mode.
  • Like the size, zoom is good but pictures are dark on all settings
  • This camera is amazing. The sharpness, the clarity, the colors, the handling, the capabilities. The weight, the size, all great.
  • The compact size... This size is perfect for my small hands. I use the a 6000 for the same reason they are both small.
Nikon COOLPIX P900 Digital Camera
  • This camera is amazing! I love the size of the camera and the quality of the pictures. The flash is very bright, which is good. I enjoy the little filters.
  • Would recommend this to anyone looking for a mid size camera that can do ti all.
  • The size is bigger than my SLR, but it's lighter and I don't have to worry about dropping lenses when I need to change them.
  • Camera is light weight, takes quality pictures and has a zoom lens like no other I have used. Worth the small cost.

What customers say about "Imaging"
Nikon COOLPIX B700 Digital Camera
  • The picture quality and focus blows me away...take the plunge!
  • Shortcomings: you will need a tripod for stabilizing the camera when shooting at its longest zoom focal length, and because the lens' widest aperture is limited in "Auto" shooting mode the camera tends to select very slow shutter speeds when taking indoor shots.
  • However when you go to Raw mode the zoom will stop at 60x no digital zoom. However I am still amazed with the quality of the picture at 60x however I still do need to practice.
  • RAW files (only in optical zoom, not in digital zoom), which is great for the small sensor it has.
  • The zoom is truly excellent and with good illumination you can get great photos
Nikon COOLPIX P900 Digital Camera
  • Focal length of lens provides great flexibility in a single package! Special features for varying light conditions easy to use.
  • The focal range on this camera is fantastic. It is the best point and shoot for birding on the market. I would buy it again and recommend it to friends.
  • Takes a little practice to figure out best settings to use. Overall easy to use.
  • I love the dynamics of the digital zoom. No changing of lens for this ole' guy. Great pictures from a versatile and simple camera, but a camera you can adjust if you want to.
  • Failed to perform as expected in rain forest environmental. Extremely hard to focus on wildlife in a jungle setting.
  • I don't always shoot in burst mode but having to preview each image after shooting can cause you to lose a shot . I wish I could turn on the image preview.

What customers say about "Display"
Nikon COOLPIX B700 Digital Camera
  • Easy camera to understand it's features. The auto transfer of LCD screen to viewfinder is great
  • I like the viewfinder and flexible view screen. I'm planning to put it to the test on an upcoming trip.
  • he swivel screen in the back is tremendously helpful in shooting video and getting the odd shot.
  • Camera has view finder-tiltable screen all directions- not found in any other cameras at this price catagory.
  • It has a decent EVF and flip out display but no touch screen.
Nikon COOLPIX P900 Digital Camera
  • It's has an awesome zoom and resolution, as long as you can focus properly.
  • Special features for varying light conditions easy to use.
  • Kinda hard to keep subject in viewfinder at max zoom!
  • The viewfinder isn't the best especially if you wear glasses. I have tried to find a different one but they aren't compatible.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Nikon COOLPIX B700 Digital Camera
  • Allow connection by USB or 3.5. Extremely light, don't even realize they are there and superior sound quality.
  • A super zoom with very good optics, and WiFi or NFC for the up-to-date connectivity, I still only bought it to capture great images, which it does.
  • Love that you can connect to phone through SnapBridge so that pics can be loaded straight to phone.
  • The real reason I got it was the Bluetooth ! How it Bluetooth pics to my phone, except it wil not connect to my iPhone 7... multiple tries w/support, many replies/tries... but will not connect..
  • Issues with Bluetooth/wifi connectivity, plus, this is a battery drainer. I disabled during my vacation.
Nikon COOLPIX P900 Digital Camera
  • The GPS function was amazing! It's just magic that it knows where you are by specific name... in fact we were in a huge botanical garden and it knew which specific area of the garden we were in.
  • The GPS tagging on the pictures is also nice so I know right were I took the photo from once I upload it to Photos on my computer.
  • A USB cable is included to transfer to a computer.
  • The camera easily connected to my phone and was easy to manage my pictures, no problem.
  • The reality is that it is capable of connecting with only a limited range of cell phones and not at all capable of connecting with lap tops.
