Nikon is no stranger to creating cameras with Android, but their first merry-go-round wasn’t that exciting. They’re giving it another honest attempt, though, with the newly-announced Nikon Coolpix S810c.
The camera features an upgraded screen size over the SC800 at 3.7 inches, and also brings the operating system up to Android 4.2.2 Gingerbread. No, it isn’t KitKat, but it’s still modern and we imagine it’s not as crucial to have the latest and greatest version of Android on a point-and-shoot camera as it is on a phone or tablet.
The camera bits on this thing are most important, so let’s not waste any time talking about them. You’ll be treated to a 16 megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor with 12x zoom (24x digital), giving you a pretty flexible lens for capturing memories of most musings. You’ll also get up to 3200ISO and vibration reduction, as well as the ability to record video up to 1080p.
WiFi and GPS are on board to help you geo-tag your photos and get them uploaded to Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram in a jiffy. So when can you get one, and for how much? Early May, says Nikon, with a price tag of a cool $350. You’ll be able to buy one in white or black if you’re interested.
