  • Summary: The Nikon S800c is an interesting hybrid of connected mobile device and traditional compact camera. The end result is a capable, but far from inspiring product which offers a lot of potential but not without some frustrations.

  • Excerpt: At first glance, the Nikon Coolpix S800c ($349) looks like just another compact ultra zoom camera. It's anything but ordinary. The Coolpix S800c is one of only two cameras on the market powered by the Android operating system, with the other being Samsung's Galaxy Camera .

  • Excerpt: We’ve grown a bit weary of the quest for instant gratification (“can I get a retweet, bro?” comes to mind). But Nikon’s COOLPIX S800c ($350) moves in a positive direction by blending point-and-shoot photography with smartphone connectivity.

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S800c has the feel of a camera rushed through to be the first of its kind. It offers a glimpse of how smart cameras can revolutionise photography, which is an exciting prospect given that the technology will probably be developed further and find its way into more high-end cameras.

Considering the S800c lacks good zoom range and manual modes, coupled with the fidgety user interface and performance that...

23 October 2012
  • Summary: The first of any new product line is never going to offer value for money alongside the thrill of the new. And the Nikon Coolpix S800c is an exciting product, even if the short battery life is an issue as is the fact that accessing the ability to take photos isn't as immediate as we feel it should...
