Nikon Coolpix S800C is the very first camera by Nikon which has Android Gingerbread 2.3 Operating system along with some more connectivity option through Wi-Fi and others. After hearing its functionality you will really want to buy one – right? It carries out standing functionality with it.

Imagine waiting for a shot and playing fruit ninja on the same device, or even managing to have a Skype video call. Once a picture is taken, editing and sharing it instantly with Instagram on Facebook, twitter, etc, is simple.

Nikon Coolpix looks the same as the smartphone from the back side. It has a 3.5 inch WVGA OLED touchscreen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS for providing smarter connectivity options and for easy image share, along with 2GB of internal memory, out of which only about 700mb is meant for the applications. There is an option for expanding its memory through memory card slot. Let me make things clear, this is not a smartphone!

It boasts a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, a 25-250mm equivalent F3.2-5.8 lens, 10x optical zoom, up to 8fps continuous shooting, and Full HD 1080p 30fps (frames per second) video recording capability. While there are hundreds of good features there are also a few faults in this device.

Nikon Coolpix S800CProcessing is much slower as it loads up with some heavy duty features with it. It’s not so good in the professional photography as it has a small screen which is not appropriate for professional photography. Plus it has not a good display to let load up your mood with it.

There are a lot of apps being running by this cam and hence it does not have a good battery backup. GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, the Android OS and Apps will shorten its battery life. If you want to explore a new world of photography, this would be the initial way of getting started with photography.

This Smart camera is available for $349.95 in USA, £219 in Europe. It’s a worthy device for all the photo freaks out there.
