galaxy s3The first mainstream digital camera power-driven by Google’s Android operating system has arrived from the house of Nikon. The Japanese maker's point and shoot Coolpix S800c is adverstized as the social imaging gizmo.
Lately the demand for compact cameras has dwindled thanks to the rise of smartphones with high-resolution camera. But, Nikon claims that its new camera gives superior image quality due to the size of its lens, and the prospect to install photo editing applications & other software.
An announcement from Nikon stated that the blend of the snapper's Wi-Fi connectivity & fresh software will make it convenient for users to upload their photographs to social networking sites.
Similar to a smartphone or tablet computer, the snapper has the chance to run camera-specific photograph & video apps, still enables the assorted advantages of clicking pictures with a snapper. The S800c offers access to the huge world of apps for productivity, games, & personal communication/email, counting Nikon's image storage & sharing website.
This camera is being retailed for $350 (£220), and hence is approximately half of the cost of high-end droids like the Galaxy S3 & the HTC One X, however the Japanese manufacturer might have to struggle to sell this to consumers.
The reason is very obvious. Camera manufacturers all over the world are suffering because smartphones have become a lot powerful than they used to be, thus a gadget similar to this might be too late to the marketplace. Smartphones are now mainstream products in many developed markets, and digital cameras are considered only an add-on product.
