Nikon unveils Android-powered Coolpix camera
Camera maker Nikon has announced their first Wi-Fi compact digital camera to incorporate Nikon’s camera imaging technologies and the Android Operating System (OS) – in the form of the COOLPIX S800c.
The S800c delivers the high picture quality and performance expected from a Nikon camera coupled with communication functions and app-based versatility of a smartphone or tablet.
“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.
The S800c answers the call by users who need the ability to capture photos and HD video with amazing clarity and colour, yet offers a familiar portal to connect to social networks and popular imaging applications through an Android Operating System. With the introduction of the S800c, beautiful images can now be confidently and quickly shared with friends and family.
“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.”
The camera’s connection features allow users to seamlessly connect, browse and upload to their social networks, including Google+, Facebook and Twitter. Users can also take advantage of the full functionality of Android technology to surf the web or even download applications and games onto their S800c.
Just like a smartphone or tablet device, the camera has the opportunity to run camera-specific photo and video applications, yet enables the various benefits of shooting with a real camera.
