Nikon has released its all new Wi-Fi compact digital camera running Android operating System. Dubbed Nikon Coolpix S800c seems to beat up Samsung, Sony and many others — including planning soon-to offer such camera companies — in smart cameras foray.
Featuring a 10x optical zoom [25-250mm equivalent F3.2-5.8] lens and 16MP BSI CMOS sensor, the Coolpix Android Smart Camera has a 3.5-inch OLED WVGA touchscreen all flavored by Android 2.3 Gingerbread. As I mentioned above, it is WiFi compatible and has support for downloading Android apps via Google Play Store. It also has Bluetooth and GPS along with 2GB of internal memory.
Nikon also bundles ‘My Picture Town’ app for uploading images directly to its cloud storage.
The new Coolpix-S compact digital camera users will also be able to record full high-definition video on the device as well as being able to directly upload all captured content to social networking sites. The Nikon team behind this device have also made it clear that the 1080p video you’ll be capturing here is top-notch, made to be able to be shared to HDTVs without a hitch.
According to folks over at Nikon, stable HD video and blur-free images are also in the offing, thanks to the inclusion of Nikon’s VR optical image stabilization. You can also check out some screenshots – courtesy SlashGear.
