Nikon’s S800c is an Android-Powered Camera

Aug 23, 2012

Nikon has a crazy idea for a camera that could just might work. They’ve announced their S800c camera, boasting the ability to take photos at up to 16 megapixels and videos at up to 1080p with a 10x optical zoom lens. So why talk about here on Android Rundown? Because this camera is packing Android. Featuring a 3.5" OLED touch screen, the S800c makes it possible to share photos over wifi using one of the many camera apps out there on Android, or even just sharing to social networks via the apps available. Plus, the benefit of Android is that an app like Dropbox or Google+ can be used to automatically share photos to cloud storage instantaneously. It is likely that users will need to bring their own SD card for storage.

The downside is that the camera runs Gingerbread instead of a later Android version, but even the aging version of Android is superior to the default software that powers most phones, and most apps should still work with Gingerbread. The S800c releases in September in both black and white colors for $349.99.
