The first camera to feature the Android operating system is the Nikon Coolpix S800c announced in August. Nikon has recently launched the Coolpix S800c in India with a price tag of Rs 20,950.
Over the past few months, the world has witnessed a major transformation in the user interface (UI) of cameras. What were once basic UIs, have now become smartphone-like UIs in point-and-shoot cameras. Now the Android operating system is used with a couple of cameras in a bid to separate them from the rest of the pack.
Here is a quick look at some of the major features associated with the Nikon Coolpix S800c:
- Android 2.3 and Wi-Fi compatibility
- GPS Function (A-GPS compatible)
- 3.5-inch, Approx. 819k-dot Widescreen OLED Monitor
Nikon has recently introduced its first Wi-Fi compact digital camera to incorporate Nikon’s camera imaging technologies, and the Android operating system.

“With the new COOLPIX S800c, Nikon designed a camera for users looking to capture stunning images and videos with a compact digital camera but also want to share their content with their friends and family in a familiar way,” said Bo Kajiwara, Vice President of Marketing, Planning and Customer Experience, Nikon Inc. “Now users can connect easily and instantly with their social networks through the wireless connection, and take advantage of the vast possibilities of the Android Operating System. The new S800c is truly the easiest way to share amazing images on the spot”.
Features such as the 10x NIKKOR zoom lens, and the 16-megapixel CMOS sensor allow the creation of photos and HD videos that Nikon claims to offer sharpness and clarity, whether up-close or at a distance, even in not so great lighting conditions.
The camera comes with the EXPEED C2 processing engine, which helps users to get a rapid response and speedy performance from their device. The camera flash can be used to illuminate subjects while continuous drive mode captures up to approximately 8 frames-per-second (up to three shots). Apart from this, a variety of scene modes and creative filters assist in capturing artistic shots.
The S800c comes with Full HD 1080p HD video recording capabilities as well as full stereo sound. The GPS function loaded on the camera helps in logging the shooting location information on stills and movies. The camera can connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi. Also, when a Wi-Fi connection is not open or available, the camera can transmit images and videos wirelessly to a smartphone or tablet, allowing the user to share better images through a mobile network.
