A Closer Look at Nikon’s New Android-Powered S800c Compact Camera

Nikon made a big splash in the compact camera world yesterday by being the first major camera manufacturer to bake Android OS into a compact camera, the Coolpix S800c (Polaroid released one a while ago, but it’s hardly a major player at the moment). The S800c looks and sounds interesting as far as specs and press releases go, but what’s it actually like to use a camera that could be mistaken for a smartphone?

Nikon Unveils the S01 and P7700: Beauty and the Small-Sensored Beast

In addition to the Android-powered compact camera announced this morning, Nikon has also announced two other compact cameras in the Coolpix lineup. We’d call them “beauty and the beast”, except for the fact that the beast isn’t very beastly (on the inside).

Lets talk about the semi-”beast” first. It’s the new P7700 — successor to the P7100 — which was leaked extensively prior to today.

Nikon Coolpix L610: A Compact That Turns AA Batteries Into a Feature

Remember the days when portable electronic devices were mostly all powered by AA and AAA batteries? Consumers had to regularly purchase new batteries to keep their gadgets juiced — a big sink for your hard earned money. When rechargeable batteries started becoming ubiquitous, they were touted as a feature for saving both time and money. All you had to do was plug your camera into the wall (or your battery into a charger) and a few hours later you were recharged.

Now things are moving back in the other direction. It’s more difficult to find a quality AA-powered camera on the market, and it can be difficult for travelers to find a suitable power outlet while overseas. That’s why Nikon’s new CoolPix L610, freshly announced today, boasts about the fact that it supports AA batteries.
