Why Has it Scored 85?

reviews indicate that it has good expert reviews and very good user reviews with 96% of buyers recommending this camera to others. This digital camera has received five awards including a "Recommended" award from Camera Labs plus two other sites and a "Highly Recommended" award from Dkamera.de plus one other site.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer cameras with better features are available. However this Nikon digital camera has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
The Coolpix B500 is one of the best selling digital cameras currently on the market.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Huge optical zoom
Make movies that amaze
Show off your creativity
Shoot without interruption
Flatter your friends and family
Intelligent autofocus
Let the camera call the shots
Don't sweat a little camera shake

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each digital camera by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the digital camera is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec digital cameras come to market, the older digital cameras will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.

What is This Digital Camera Best Used For?

Having compared this digital camera with other relevant digital cameras, we have concluded that it is excellent for everyday photography. It is also very good for landscape photography as well being very good for portrait photography, ranking number 46 in portrait photography cameras.
