Nikon Coolpix S810c point-and-shoot Android camera costs $350

The Nikon Coolpix S810c launch is the second time the company is trying its hand at an Android point-and-shoot camera since it released its predecessor in 2012. Nikon says that users will never have to post a ‘sub-par cell phone photo’ to their social network now. Well, we don’t know about that considering the excellent technologies being injected into smartphone snappers these days.

Unless you’re particularly finicky about images you upload on Facebook, Twitter and other networks, we don’t see why pictures from a handset can’t cut the mustard. Well, Nikon’s just trying to sell its Coolpix S810c Android camera in an age where point-and-shoots are earning less and less respect.

The device embeds a 16MP backside illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor and a 12x optical zoom Nikkor lens. For shooting at evening parties when you’re likely to be facing low light conditions, there’s the option to crank up the ISO to a maximum of 3200. And because of the possibility that your hands will be all shaky while dancing or after a few drinks, a Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction (VR) feature steps in to reduce blurriness in photos.

The Coolpix S810c has the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS onboard and offers access to Google Play. This means users can download various compatible apps including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter directly onto the camera. The device is capable of connecting to Wi-Fi hotspots as well as your tablet or smartphone. It has a 3.7-inch touch-sensitive LCD for allowing access to the various controls and modes provided to users.
