Nikon Coolpix S800c: Bringing Back the Point-and-Shoot


Most of us have ditched our point-and-shoot cameras and we're taking photos with our phones. iPhone cameras are pretty darn good, and by using a phone as your camera, you carry one device and you can upload pics instantly. Phones lack a lot of the features of a good camera, but we’ve learned to settle.

Now Nikon has announced a device that means we don't have settle. Nikon's new Coolpix S800c point-and-shoot is a 16-megapixel, Android-enabled camera with a 10x Nikkor vibration reduction lens that, like a smartphone, connects to the Internet instantly so that you can upload pictures you just shot. It lets you edit images in-camera. It shoots full HD 1080p video. And it has a built in GPS, so you can geotag the spot where you saw that stellar sunset, and you can retrace your route back to the car in the dark. It’s a bit like having an iPad inside your camera.
