Nikon COOLPIX P500 Firmware Update

Nikon COOLPIX P500 Compact Digital Camera

Nikon COOLPIX P500 Firmware Update – Its main feature is the Nikkor 36x optical zoom lens, 35mm equivalent to 22.5 – 810mm. The Nikon Coolpix P500 has adjustable Zoom in two places – a sliding zoom control button next to the lens and a standard rocker zoom around the shutter button. There is a re-illuminated 12.1Mp CMOS image sensor for comfortable shooting in any light.

Nikon COOLPIX P500 Design, Features, and Performance

The camera has seven anti-blur methods: Hybrid VR (Sensor-shift and Electronic Vibration Reduction) reduces the camera shake effect and can be set simultaneously for additional protection. Iso can be adjusted as high as 3200, and motion detection compensates for camera and subject movements. Best Shot Selector (BSS) will automatically select the sharpest of up to 10 consecutive shots. There is a special light mode that aims to deliver outstanding results in any light, even without a tripod – Night Portraits and Night Scenes. Backlight mode offers impressive color tone details in any situation.

The controls on the Coolpix P500 are all well labeled, most of which are quite large and easily fall under your fingertips or thumb. The rear plate looks like a cross between a compact camera and an entry-level DSLR – which is a fair way to deduce the P500 in general. It provides both command dials such as a rear DSLR to scroll quickly through selectable shutter speeds plus a four-way control pad with an ‘OK’ button in the middle to apply any changes to menu settings, where a special menu button is placed just below. While we want the control for direct access to the ISO option, we also get a special button to remove, rotate, and display the settings – again, what you’d expect to find in any compact camera. So, those who switch from point and shoot cameras will not consider the Coolpix P500 scary in day-to-day operations.
