Nikon Debuts 16MP Coolpix S800c Camera with Android OS App Versatility & Wi-Fi Connectivity
Working with Google Play, the S800c provides access to a world of applications for games, productivity and personal communication/e-mail, including Nikon’s photo storage and sharing site, my Picturetown. Users are also able to watch video downloaded from Google Play right on the camera.
While rivaling the versatility of a smartphone or tablet, the Coolpix S800c provides such Nikon imaging technology as the Expeed C2 processing engine, built to offer rapid response and speedy performance. Additional benefits include the ability to use a camera flash to illuminate subjects, while continuous drive mode captures up to 8 frames per second (up to three shots). Plus, there are a variety of scene modes, 18 creative filters (including toy camera effect, pop and super vivid color filters, cross process and peripheral darkening filters), Full HD 1080p HD video recording with full stereo sound, and built-in GPS so users can geotag shooting spots and record shooting location information on stills and movies.
Smartphone and tablet users will feel at home with the S800c’s controls and operation, with easy navigation via the camera’s wide 3.5-inch touch-screen OLED monitor. The camera will connect to the Internet with granted access to any Wi-Fi network. Upon connection, users will be prompted through an easy setup process, similar to that of other Android devices. The S800c also has the ability to connect through WPS for secure push-button connection. Additionally, when a Wi-Fi connection is not open or available, the camera can transmit images and videos wirelessly to a smartphone or tablet, so users can share images through a mobile network.
