The Coolpix S800 will be the first Android based camera from Nikon

Nikon will finally announce a new Android based compact camera. The model name will probably be Coolpix S800 (or S800c) as you can see in this Indonesian Communication Agency filing (filed on July 31, 2012):

The expected camera specs are:

  • 25-250 mm lens
  • 3.5" OLED screen
  • The camera runs all Google Play apps
  • The camera will probably run Android 2.3
  • Built-in GPS
  • Built-in Wi-Fi
  • Possible announcement: August 22, 2012
This will be a major Photokina announcement for Nikon. It will be interesting to see if Nikon will release high-end Android based cameras (and maybe DSLRs?) in the future.

    I wish this had a phone in it I would have bought in a heartbeat. Seriously.

  • Gab

    If it had a phone in it it would be a total game changer, like this it’s just a slow compact camera.

    I wouldn’t ever buy an android DSLR for sure, battery life would suffer and I’m not sure about the speed, android can be quick, but not DSLR quick, unless super expensive.

    • The logic of development is about improving of using things and activities …
      It means that there is a few or many possibilities how to do one thing or activity.

      There is a new modular system Asus Padfone and what would want to get photo-enthusiasts is to add possibilty of choosing camera module (simply phone camera tehse days or e.g.Ricoh GXR camera unit with lens, LYTRO system or Samsung NX system, MFT etc.)

      Second things are a technical solution of computing engines and chargers for all part of modular system when it would be separate …
