Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 84?

purchasers report that it has marvellous user reviews but ok expert reviews. 96% of buyers recommended this camera to others.
This digital camera is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer digital cameras with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Nikon digital camera is one of the best selling cameras currently on the market.
The COOLPIX Coolpix B500 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Very big 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 it with other relevant digital cameras, we have concluded that it is excellent for wildlife photography. It is also very good for everyday photography as well being very good for sports photography.
