It is a big day for consumer point and shoots, as Nikon has introduced five new models fit for mass consumption. All five models will be available in India, by October.
The first in the list is the new Coolpix S800c, a first of its kind as it is an Android-powered camera. Featuring a 3.5-inch 819K dot OLED display with full touch support, the camera takes advantage of the Android system as it packs in a Wi-Fi chip as well. The S800c is aimed towards those who are very hooked to the social networking scene as it allows direct uploading to the most popular sites. In terms of imaging, the Coolpix S800c packs a 16MP back-side illuminated sensor which gathers light thanks to a 25-250mm (10x optical) zoom lens. It comes with 1.7GB of onboard storage space and surprisingly, packs a USB3.0 connection for fast image transfer.
