Hi, Nikon

Santa (that's me) brought me a new camera.  I already have a Canon Rebel and it's great, but it is bulky to carry around.  It's heavy and it gets in the way.  My biggest complaint was the shutter noise also.  There is no way to turn it off so with every picture you take, there is a loud 'click' of the shutter.  Nobody wants to hear constant clicking during concerts, recitals, awards, etc.

I had been eyeing this red Nikon Coolpix B500 at Target for a while.  It's cheap for a Nikon.  I wanted a smaller camera to bring places and this seemed to be pretty decent.  I found it on sale on Amazon and decided it would be my Christmas present. 

So far, I like it.   Here are some test shots I took around our yard with it. 


  1. What a wonderful gift from Santa!
    And you are already taking beautiful photos!

  2. The photos look fantastic. I am also looking for a cheap but decent camera that I can take on vacations. Will check out the Nikon Coolpix B500.
