About Nikon B700

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. Plus, the whole time you're shooting, the COOLPIX B700 can be connected to a compatible smartphone through Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) technology for instant photo sharing and remote camera control. This is more than a compact camera—it's a creative powerhouse.

Get closer to what matters

Few shots are too far away for the COOLPIX B700's NIKKOR Super ED glass lens. 60x optical zoom gives you super telephoto power, then Dynamic Fine Zoom, an enhanced digital zoom, effectively doubles that reach for a whopping 120x zoom. Dual Detect Vibration Reduction (VR) counteracts camera shake to keep your shots steady, and a 20-megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor captures every detail, even in low light.

Install Nikon's new SnapBridge app on a compatible smartphone or tablet* and unlock exciting new capabilities with the COOLPIX B700. Built-in Wi-Fi®, NFC and Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) maintain a constant connection between the app and your camera, so each shot you take automatically transfers to your smartphone or tablet for sharing, editing with photo apps or uploading to your favorite sites. You can even use the SnapBridge app to control your camera remotely!

Create movies like a pro

The COOLPIX B700 is a serious movie-making tool. Create with the awe-inspiring resolution of 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) and selectable 30p or 25p frame rates. Face-priority AF keeps focus where you want it, and 5-Axis Hybrid Vibration Reduction (VR) keeps videos tripod-steady. High fidelity audio is captured with a stereo zoom mic that changes directivity according to zoom operation. Record up to 8 minutes with the touch of a button, then quickly delete unwanted footage right in the camera. Save still images while recording or during playback, connect to an HDTV with an optional HDMI cable, set autofocus to operate only when a subject moves and much more.


Preserve every detail

For those who want to preserve maximum image quality and have greater flexibility for editing images outside of the camera, the COOLPIX B700 supports RAW (NRW) image capture. Capturing in RAW format preserves all of the data captured by the image sensor, making it easier to adjust exposure settings, white balance, colors and other settings using photo editing software.


Enjoy the view

3.0-inch 921,000-dot Vari-angle LCD makes every photo and video look great. The COOLPIX B700's large, LCD display makes it easy to compose your shots or monitor your video recording. Reviewing and sharing your creations is a pleasure, too—every shot looks fantastic on the display.


Turn the ordinary into extraordinary

Creative Mode makes it easy to create artistic photos and videos, right in the camera. Capture fireworks like never before with Multiple Exposure Lighten, which combines multiple shots into one amazing image. Turn a sequence of action into a fast-paced video with Superlapse and much more.


Take control of your vision

When you want to take control of exposure, the COOLPIX B700 is ready. Select from P/S/A/M exposure modes and the creative options will seem endless.


Charge and go

The COOLPIX B700 is powered by an included EN-EL23 battery that charges quickly and delivers up to 420 shots per charge. Buy a second battery, and you can always have a fully charged back-up in your bag.


Freeze action in its tracks

When the action speeds up, simply hold the shutter button and fire off up to 5 continuous shots per second. Catch views you may not have seen before in your photos.

The Nikon COOLPIX B700: The Ultimate Close-Up 
The B700 is the most compact ultra-high-power 60x optical zoom, 120x Dynamic Fine Zoom*1 camera in its class, presenting an advanced balance of mobility, zoom performance and imaging technology. Users can look forward to capturing vibrant scenes and portraits in sharp detail, both day and night, backed by the camera's 20.3 million megapixels*2 delivered with a backside-illumination CMOS image sensor. 

This is further enhanced by superior NIKKOR lens optics to ensure that subjects always look crisp and vibrant. With the incorporation of a Super Extra-Low Dispersion glass element, chromatic aberration is effectively reduced and excellent image quality is maintained, even at a higher zoom ratio. Advanced users now also have greater freedom to experiment and edit their images with the camera's ability to shoot in RAW format, with no impact on image quality. 

Helping users navigate ultra-high-power zoom, are snap-back zoom and side zoom control for easy operation. If a subject is lost during telephoto zoom operation, the camera's zoom position can be shifted to wide-angle with the press of a button, allowing the user to recapture the subject easily which can come in handy when capturing fast-paced sporting action or birds moving through the canopy. To reduce camera shake for crisp, clear images, the camera's side zoom control ensures stable zoom operation while holding the lens barrel with the left hand. 

Combining technological refinement with lightning-fast performance, the B700 ensures that special moments are never missed. Locking on to subjects is even faster with high-speed autofocus at approximately 0.12 seconds, aided by a pre-focus function which allows the camera to detect composition change and camera shake. When tracking moving subjects such as children at play or animals on the move, the enhanced Vibration Reduction (VR) performance with improved camera shake detection and at a compensation effect equivalent to a shutter speed of 5.0 stops*3, help to ensure that images are sharp and shake-free when shooting on the go. 
The B700 comes with an extensive suite of stand-out video features for the aspiring movie-maker. Advanced 4K Ultra-high-definition movies with stereo sound are a snap to create in 2160/30p format, for vibrant videos with sumptuous details. Features such as a dedicated movie-record button, still image shooting, and push autofocus function during movie recording, further simplify the movie-making experience for everyday users. HDMI support is also available in the B700, allowing the direct playback of gorgeous video creations for immediate enjoyment on bigger screens. 

The 2016 Spring COOLPIX range sees the introduction of a "Superlapse" movie function for selected models in the line-up. The B700 is able to stitch still images saved from a recorded movie into a 30 or 20fps fast-action movie from the user's unique viewpoint, even while recording in motion, allowing the user to experiment with creative composition or changing landscapes. In addition, impressive time-lapse creations can be put together with the quick selection of a shooting scene and appropriate time interval, for the convenient enjoyment of cityscapes and sunsets, ready for sharing on social media. 

Creative image creation is embraced with an array of versatile and intuitive editing and post-processing functions. For celebrations with extra sparkle, Multiple Exposure Lighten is a new function for photographing light trails. The camera automatically composites two or more images taken with interval-timer photography, for the best shots of fireworks, star trails and flying aircraft. Another new feature, Creative Mode enables users to combine preset modes such as "Light", "Depth" and "Classic" with options such as appropriate aperture, contrast and color reproduction before shooting, for a unique visual narrative with every shot. 

Elevating the COOLPIX user journey is the launch of SnapBridge, a brand new connectivity experience from Nikon which turns the B700 into a powerful image creation device with always-on smartphone connectivity. SnapBridge powers the automatic transfer of images to the user's smartphone as they are captured for a seamless Bluetooth connection between the camera and social media. This service comes with a host of features for added convenience and connectivity such as the embedding of location, date/time and image credit information, automatic uploading of photographs to the NIKON IMAGE SPACE, as well as remote shooting via a Wi-Fi connection for shake-free shots. Users looking to re-live holiday memories or special occasions can also browse camera images, even when the camera is turned off. 

The design DNA of the B700 is inherited from a SLR camera marrying both style and function. An electronic viewfinder, equipped with an eye sensor, ensures a stable shooting position and easy switching between monitor shooting and viewfinder operation. The camera's vari-angle TFT High-definition LCD monitor allows for convenient shooting from high and low angles, with clear visibility even under direct sunlight. Additionally, a premium body construction is conveyed by the camera's refined styling and high quality textures, for secure yet comfortable handling.
