Nikon Coolpix P500 Point & Shoot Digital Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Nikon Coolpix P500 is a refreshing super zoom compact camera that will attract the semi pros. Enthusiasts will find it fascinating that this camera features a mechanically stabilized 36X optical zoom with a massive focal range beginning from 22.5 – 810mm,  this over a very innovative side zoom control. It is further capable of recording full 1080p HD videos with stereo sound, full time AF, and optical zoom. The icing on the cake comes with the camera’s ability to record slow motion videos at up to 240fps. More features include manual shooting modes and a burst mode of five continuous shots at 8fps. You can review your photos and videos on the given 3-inch LCD 921K dot articulated screen. And it sports a three and a half inches back side illuminated CMOS sensor together with 12.2megapixels. The sensitivity range too is amazing that stretches from ISO 600 TO 3200, and the camera is a modest upgrade of its predecessor. However, Nikon Coolpix P500 stays to be a proper choice for those who want the convenience of a super zoom but also search for the creative control that the high-end cameras offer. It may not give you the best photos at higher ISO speeds but it is still a lot more portable and convenient than an average SLR with a stack full of lenses. It is also advantageous as an amazing video camera, all thanks to its precise video mode.


Design and Build Quality

When it comes to the weight, Nikon Coolpix P500 is slightly heavier than the old P100, weighing at 494 grams, but in an overall spectrum it is very much the same. It scales only 115.5mm x 83.7mm x 102.5mm. Like with most high end super zoom cameras this camera too has a traditional bridge look coupled with a chunky handgrip, a big lens grip, a flash resting directly on top of the lens and an eye level electronic viewfinder. The grip is perfect to fit into you right hand, and has this rubber texture for your comfort. Also, the camera is not only available in your basic Black but a striking Red as well. Pick whichever you like!

Focus and Face Detection

For focus, this camera consists of an AF mode, Macro, Infinity and even a Manual mode. Each works differently; the AF is centre spot, which is user dependant, selecting from 99 focus points or if camera is selectable from 9 points. It is to be noticed that needless of the AF area mode, the auto focus speed is decent for still subjects but rather slow for subjects in motion. The manual mode offers much freedom to you but is quite a slow process, nevertheless, a delightful addition in case your autofocus system ditches you. While during face priority auto focus, the camera has the ability to focus on 12 human faces and will focus predominantly more on the subjects close to the lens.

Lens and Image Stabilization

The magnificent 32X zoom lens is the star of the camera, putting it out there in the market. The praises go side by side to the ultra wideness of the lens from 22.5mm to 810mm in 35mm terms. This range is equivalent to your changing least 3 – 4 lenses to cover a similar focal range. This range gives you freedom unlike you have experienced and with the speedy processing, this will make shooting fun for you. The aperture of f/3.4 at 22.5mm and f/5.7 at 810mm is the reason for its fastness. This single lens is remarkably compact in respect to its attributes. For image stabilization, the camera sports a Vibration Reduction (VR) that is, to battle camera shakes in order to give you thoroughly vibrant pictures, and this is something essential for a camera that features a super zoom lens. The result displayed by the Vibration Reduction feature is noticeable as it gives you sharp images and beautiful photographs without blur. 

Screen and Menus

A fully articulated screen of 3-inch size and called the vari angle monitor is placed in the rear of Nikon Coolpix P500 to offer 921,000 dot-display, which is excellent for you to capture and then preview photos. Of course, all the added advantages of a tilting screen comes with it, you can take photos from tricky points and unusual angles. The screen has a brightness adjustment setting to it and an anti glaring coat, so that even as you are outdoors in the sun, viewing does not become an issue. The additional eye level electronic viewfinder is just a joy to those who require compositional freedom. As for the menu, it is a button away to access and is as easy as that. Navigation will not be a problem, all that you need has been provided for.


Nikon Coolpix P500 is operated by an 1100m-AH lithium ion battery. They are placed next to the car slot, which is by the way, compatible with SD / SDHC / SDXC cards; the compartment is on the base of the camera and is shared. The camera on a full charge will last for as many as 240 shots. There is also a small internal memory card but it will keep a few photos, so a memory card is mandatory. 

Video Mode

A stunning feature that you would end up appreciating in the Nikon Coolpix P500 is its capability to record Full HD 1920 x 1080 p movies at a decent 30fps. And while recording the stereo sound and optical zoom are operable, it offers different frame rates and quality standards, one being 720p at 30fps ( 1280 x 720 p ) and another being a VGA mode again at 30fps but with 640 x 480p. Added helpful features like Wind Noise Reduction are a gift! It will reduce wind noises blowing on the microphone. The drawback is that the sensor shift VR does not work as you record but as per your wish, you can use the given electronic image stabilization. This doesn’t end here, the camera can record high speed movies at QVGA at 240fps, in VGA at 120 fps and even HD (720 p) at 60fps. You can even turn them into slow motion, all with the option of playing them back at 30fps. All this with that one button, sitting on the rear, you click and in whichever mode the device is, it will start recording. 


The camera sports a commendable 12.1megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor, with a dual image processor and Nikon’s very own EXPEED C2 image-processing engine. This in end works brilliantly, offering you detailed image with minimal noise or distortion. The processing is quick such that one cannot complain about it.

With a zoom that's both remarkably wide and extremely long, the Nikon P500 exceeds all expectations in a long zoom digital camera with only a few optical compromises. This is the camera you grab when you don't want to heft the SLR and a bag full of lenses.
The Nikon P500 takes only 1.5 seconds to power on and take a shot. That's very fast for an ultra-zoom camera.
Full autofocus shutter lag is very fast, at 0.158 second at wide angle and 0.119 second at full telephoto; faster than most DSLRs. Prefocused shutter lag is 0.012 second, which is excellent.
The camera's AF system was able to focus down to just above the 1/4 foot-candle light level without AF assist, though the camera was able to focus in complete darkness with the AF assist lamp enabled.
Connected to a computer or printer with USB 2.0, the Nikon Coolpix P500's download speeds are moderately fast. We measured 4,942 KBytes/sec.

Awesome Camera. Loved It :)
by Shanti Swaroop Swain on 2012-02-07

Loved this camera. As usual, flipkart service was great and packaging was very good. Received the product exactly on the date expected (on my birthday). So here is my experience with this camera.

This camera is great if u can use it properly. U need to knows the settings and the environment so as to adjust your camera to get the best picture quality. It even takes awesome pics in low light conditions. I read a lot of reviews and found a number of bad reviews regarding this product. But still I bought it as it was the best in my budget.

Now I am glad I didnt believe those reviews. Time for Pros and cons.

Pros :
1) Great camera, great build, stable.
2) Fast startup, max 2 seconds. Very less time lag between flash charge.
3) Low light pictures are great with proper camera settings.
4) Normal light pictures are quite great. Well u cant expect SLR type picture quality. But still its very crisp and clear.
5) Battery life is good too. Was able to take around 250 pics one day, although I was saving battery by using the viewfinder most of the time and flash only when required.
6) Video recording is ultimate. The quality is too good. Only problem is shaking, but i think that can be solved using a tripod.
7) U'll surely love the super zoom. Just reduce the shaking and u can take extremely nice close ups.

1) Still photography in low light is great, but if the subject is moving or in case of disco lights, taking gud pictures becomes a little difficult.
2) In low light, u need to wait a couple of seconds before u can shoot another picture. I don't know why it waits, but it doesn't starts focusing immediately after a pic is taking.
3) High Speed video recording is a mystery to me still. I dont know why I am not able to take good videos in it. When I try to take videos, the videos are very dark. But in the same conditions, the HD video is great.
4) charging of fully exhausted battery takes around 5 hours or more.

It has been only 15 days since I purchased it, and I haven't faced any technical problems yet. I hope I don't face any.

In a nut shell, if u are good with camera settings u can take ultimate pictures with this camera. This is the best point and shoot camera providing SLR features ...

by manik batalvi on 2011-09-28

The decision to buy Nikon P500 was taken after a long research. Wanted to buy a SLR but the simplicity of this camera caught my eye. Its so easy to use and the results are really good.

This was my first major order through Flipkart. Earlier orders were books and DVDs only. So i was a little apprehensive to be honest.

The camera was deliverd to me in three days in pristine condition with everything as listed on the site. Got a 2 GB Go Gear USB player with it for free.

Kudos to Flipkart Team .

Packs a punch
by Rohit Dhawan on 2012-01-29


Ultra Zoom is great.
Full HD Recording.
Slow Motion Recording.
Ease of use.
Excellent burst mode shooting.
Macro mode is highly impressive.
Variety of shooting modes and scenes.
Good for its price.


Gets grainy in Telephoto zoom.
Battery runs out of juice quickly.
Camera freezes if turned on with lens hood.
Can't click pictures in video mode (compared to other camera).
Noisy when zooming during video capture.
Picture quality mediocre in low light.

In my opinion, this camera is worth money but you will have to spend a little extra on another battery. Picture quality is quite impressive. Buy it if you do not want to carry a Handycam and a camera together. It is a great tool combines in one.

by Adithya Das on 2011-11-27

Simply superb. i bought this camera after months of deliberation and almost
went in for a nikon DSLR,but this stopped me in my tracks.. great wide
angle and even better telephoto (albeit with a bit of chromatic aberration
at 1:1).with this cam i was assured of any pic i ever wanted. video is
great @1080p and the stereo sound recording is exquisite. a bit distortion
when taking closeup pics.(to be expected from this sort of lens).but that counts for nothing.. great macro and in
camera editing options.. but keep at least a 32GB card and a spare battery
handy for trips or events..runs out of juice a bit faster than your typical
cybershot..MUST BUY FOR A SERIOUS NON PRO Photographer

NIKON P 500 is magical,magnificent.... What a camera !!!
by Abhishek Verma on 2012-02-25

Well, must I say , it took about 20 days of intensive research, comparison, guidance from some of the good known photographers in the city as well as reviews from youtube and other internet sites including Flipkart, for finalizing this amazing camera called NIKON P 500 !!
what a camera..!, what a performance !!...what a zooooom !!!
I am really impressed with its features which even beats , sometimes the close SLRs/DSLRs also ...( i know few of you may have your eyebrow raised on this comment , but trust me... I have taken few snaps with N P 500 as well as a DSLR and found both to be at par)

The red color adds spice.
smooth functioning is a plus plus.

Very small two issues ( being an honest reviewer, I must add here) :
(1) the display is adjustable... which is ok for photography but it should have that swing/rotation effect in CANON SX40s..
(2) deleting the unwanted snaps is a tedious affair, especially the selection is a bit time consuming and confusing.

But rest, This is a 9.5/10 camera !
Go for it.

Great Product:-)
by Jason Caleb Raj on 2011-10-11

I was looking for a SLR when this Cam caught my eye.
The features offered are pretty high and to-operate its pretty simple.
Not to mention the weight...its damn light compared with SONY HX100V(the only match in its category).
P500 stands out due to its wide viewing angle (handy in sight-seeing locations).

Thanks to Flipkart for their great service and the prompt delivery!
Wish they bring-in more product categories:-P

Superb Camera....
by Biswajeet Patra on 2011-12-29

I have used this camera....its having superb functionality and features.Its 36x zooming performance is too good, I have just taken this camera from one of my friend for few days.

I just love this camera, Now I also planning to buy one butI cant spent tht much amount at once and i also dont have credit card, i only hve debit card and i wanna pay whole amount in 6 installment or Post dated cheque.
But as per its not possible, so this is my problem but This camera is Superb once again.

by Jondeep Das on 2012-01-11

The Nikon Coolpix p500 is really a nice camera.the main advantage of this camera is the 36x optical zoom which enables us to reach clearly then our eye.i think the price of the camera is much less in comparison to the features of the camera.
It has dual image processor,CMOS technology,Red eye reduction etc.i found the camera to satisfactory up to the full is suitable for those who wants much clear image and full hd videos and who doesnot want to carry a huge DSLR with the extra lenses.
I have been discovering a new function daily in the has lots of those who are planning or in doubt to buy it should buy it with out any my openion the camera doesnot have any disadvantages.

Good Camera
by Mandeep Singh on 2011-11-22

Camera with cool feature, using it for last 6 months no issues. Only problem is with high zoom when you need a more stable hand though the image stabilizer is available but still it takes time to get a clear image.
