The rumors we heard before proved to be true as Nikon officially announced the Nikon Coolpix S800c, an android-powered camera. While the masses are focused on android phones, Nikon took the leap on venturing to the ever-growing android community. However, this isn’t the very first android powered camera as it was already seen on the Polaroid SC1630 camera.


Nikon Coolpix S800c Features

The Nikon Coolpix S800c runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has a fortune of accessing Google Play Store. With Play Store, it will be able to download almost every camera app available on android straight from the device. Also, accessing the web is also possible as it has a 3.5-inch OLED touchscreen display for navigation and overall user interface interaction. What seems to be very interesting is if this Nikon S800c will be able to have access to either Google Drive or Dropbox, it can be used to directly upload the pictures to the cloud.


Another thing, this camera has a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor with an optical zoom of 10x wide, a 1080p video recording capability, GPS, and most importantly, Wi-Fi. Yes, that simply means you can upload your photos almost instantly! This will be very beneficial to avid Facebook and Instagram photo uploaders. And if you don’t want it out for the public, it has a 4GB internal storage too – which I think is relatively small for a 16MP camera. For sure, it will get filled in no time.

Price and Availability

The Nikon Coolpix S800c will debut next month with a price of $349.95 (roughly Php15k) and will be available in both black and white colors. Although this Coolpix S800c seems interesting, it might have a hard time competing with the android phones since it has an expensive price tag that matches mid-range android handsets.

What do you think about this new device from Nikon? Is it a hit or a miss?
