Nikon Coolpix S800c Review

Tech2
2 January 2013
  • Summary: At Rs 20,950 (including a 4GB SD card, pouch and HDMI cable), the Nikon Coolpix S800c is priced at par with premium travel zoom digital cameras such as Canon PowerShot SX260 HS. Considering the S800c lacks good zoom range and manual modes, coupled with the fidgety user interface and performance that doesn’t match up to other cameras in its price range, the asking price is too high.

Nikon S800c

Imaging Resource
10 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The Nikon S800c's design feels conflicted, with its camera and Android portions often seeming to be at odds with each other. Our conclusion after shooting with the S800c for some time is equally conflicted: there were things we liked about its design, and others that drove us batty. It's handsome, compact when you consider its zoom reach, and has swift autofocus.
  • Pros: Powerful 10x optical zoom lens, Can shoot photos before Android finishes booting up (but not change settings), Large library of available apps for download from Google Play store, Third-party apps allow functionality unheard of in closed-OS cameras, Integrated Wi-Fi and friendly app ease photo sharing, if you're not using a Jellybean-based device, Processor is fast enough even for some light gaming, Internal memory is pretty generous, Bright colors with very good hue ...

Nikon Coolpix S800c marries Android, point-and-shoot with mixed results

CNET
26 October 2012
  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S800c marries an above-average point-and-shoot with the functionality of an Android device with mixed results.
  • Pros: The Nikon Coolpix S800c is a good-looking point-and-shoot running on Android with a nice touch screen, Wi-Fi, GPS, and full access to the Google Play store and all the apps and content you'd find on other Android devices.
  • Cons: The S800c feels like a camera with an Android smartphone tacked on, and a slow and old one at that. Battery life is very short. Photo quality isn't any better than its far less expensive line mate, the Coolpix S6300.

Nikon CoolPix S800c (Android OS) Review

thinkdigit.com
24 October 2012
  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S800c is the first Android powered camera in the market, but at the end of the day, it is meant to be camera first and anything else, second. For us, photographic performance is supreme, and we hoped that Android would actually add something to the shooting experience, but all it did was bring the 'freeze experience' to the camera. The average image quality doesn't warrant the Rs. 20,950 price tag.
  • Pros: Good build, Fast startup to camera
  • Cons: Apps can cause lags, crashes, Dated OS, Average image quality

Nikon Coolpix S800c review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • 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. Apart from its Android functionality, think of the S800c as a consumer-level compact with an excellent screen but poor battery life.

Nikon Coolpix S800c review

Pocket Lint
12 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Conceptually courageous, the Android OS feels like it’s forged rather than forced into this camera concept. Android - even version 2.3 - works as a great base to run apps, share images and much more. But the S800c has two main problems: it’s far too expensive for what is essentially an Android version of the point-and-shoot Coolpix S6300 at almost three times the cost, and battery life really isn’t up to scratch.
  • Pros: Responsive touchscreen, capable 10x optical zoom, better-than Smartphone pictures, browsing plus apps and sharing all possible, 1.7GB internal storage
  • Cons: Too expensive, battery life not good enough, slow start-up time, no manual controls
