Nikon COOLPIX S800c Reviews

Engadget reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S800c and writes;
“The most interesting thing we discovered was that it seems the camera part of the S800c can run independently from Android while the latter is still booting up. You see, rather than letting the device stay on standby like most other Android devices, Nikon uses a shut-down timer that activates once Android goes on standby.”

CNET reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S800c and writes;
“Forgetting about the Android part of this camera for the moment, overall photo quality from the Nikon Coolpix S800c is above average for a point-and-shoot with its features, suitable for prints up to 8×10 or slightly larger and Web use. You will get better photos (and videos, for that matter) from it than from a smartphone,”

T3 reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S800c and writes;
“We did have fun playing with the S800c that increased in proportion to the amount of time we spent with it. But, for the price, a more realistic offering would be to witness this technology on a camera that offered better quality than your average snapshot – and undoubtedly one day very soon we will.”

Photographyblog reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S800c and writes;
“In truth then it is among early adopters rather than camera enthusiasts that the Coolpix S800c stands the best chance of finding an audience. Not just because of the premium asking price but also the initially modest camera specification, when compared what could be bought if you’re not bothered about, or even put off by, an Android operating system.”

“with the Nikon S800c’s Android capabilities, you don’t have to transfer your image files to another device if you don’t want to.
