Nikon's new point-and-shoot camera "COOLPIX S800c" was announced to release. It's scheduled to be released in the end of September, and the price is open. The main feature is that it is an Android-powered camera.
Andoird-powered camera enables users to upload photos onto the social network services, such as Twitter and Facebook easily and instantly. Also, by using all kinds of apps available at Google Play, you can customize this camera as much as you like. This is very interesting.
2 colors, black and white, are available. Wi-fi will be used to connect to the internet.
Please see the official product website for more details.
Since the smartphone has debuted, so many products were taken their market share by smartphones. One of the best examples is the camera, especially the point-and-shoot.
The camera still has much better resolution than smartphone's camera, but just taking snap shots, there isn't much difference between smartphones ad cameras. And it's far more convenient for users to take photos by using their smartphone, as they can upload instantly onto social networking sites.
I guess one of the main use of photos is to share with friends through twitter and Facebook.
Also, there have been so many unique apps around since smartphone's debut. Users are becoming more creative and having fun experimenting photos they shot and sharing them with friends.
Even just for posting photos onto Twitter or Facebook, it's obviously much better to use proper camera. I hope this product can beat the smartphone and regain its market share back.
I was thinking this Nikon camera must be more than the best, if it has phone functionality. ... is it too much?
