Cameras, for the most part, run on their own proprietary software, although given the open nature of Android and the apps available for the platform, we’ve seen how some camera manufacturers have decided to integrate Android into their cameras, perhaps presenting photographers with a more familiar user interface.
That being said, it seems that Nikon is trying their hand at another Android camera with the recently announced Nikon Coolpix S810c, which we guess would be the successor of the Coolpix 800c from back in 2012.
The camera itself is a pretty basic digital compact camera which will pack a 16MP sensor under the hood. It will also come with a 12x digital zoom lens, a 3.7-inch display, geotagging, vibration reduction, Full HD video recording, and even Google Play support.
There’s even a pretty interesting feature where photographers can add their own comments to their photo, perhaps to note a particular moment when the photo was taken, or perhaps to explain why they chose to take that particular shot, and so on. The camera will also run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and will come with WiFi for wireless transferring of photos.
Priced at $350, the Nikon Coolpix S810c is expected to see a release around May, so if you’re in the market for a new camera, perhaps the Coolpix S810c could be what you were looking for.
