Nikon Coolpix S800c Review

 

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...

The Nikon Coolpix S800c is one of only two Android-based cameras on the market, with the other being the more expensive Samsung Galaxy Camera. The S800c takes the 'guts' of Nikon's Coolpix S6300 compact ultra zoom and adds a dual-core processor, 3.5'...

Nikon Coolpix S800c review

 

It was only a matter of time before a major camera manufacturer started using Android as the operating system for a camera. Nikon made the jump first with the Coolpix S800c.

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.

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.

The Nikon Coolpix S800c marries an above-average point-and-shoot with the functionality of an Android device with mixed results.

Nikon Coolpix S800c Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S800c is the first ever camera to use the Android smartphone operating system. The S800c is also Wi-Fi enabled with a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, 10x optical zoom, built-in GPS and a 3.5-inch OLED touchscreen. The 25-250mm Nikkor lens...

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...

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,...

Nikon CoolPix S800c (Android OS) Review

 

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...

Good build, Fast startup to camera

Nikon Coolpix S800c

 

Nikon may have gotten there first, but Samsung did it better

Nice menu system

Outdated OS; no 3G/4G access, Unresponsive shutter button, Screen could be bigger

At a $350 asking price, the Nikon S800c is essentially an amusing if slightly expensive curiosity. Next to the as-yet-unannounced but presumably much higher price tag for the Samsung Galaxy Camera, though, it’s a pittance to get in on the ground floor...
