Coolpix S810c uses Android Jelly Bean, has 16MP sensor

Nikon is adding another camera to its popular Coolpix line, with an Android-based device. The Coolpix S810c runs on Android 4.2.2, an upgrade from the Android 2.3 used in the Coolpix S800c two years ago, and while it has a similar 16-megapixel sensor to its predecessor, its optical zoom has been improved from 10x to a greater 12x, doubling to 24x using "Dynamic Fine Zoom."

On the back is a 3.7-inch 1229k-dot LCD display, which is said to allow for not only access to the camera's controls and image editing apps, but also allows for the browsing of social media apps and playing games sourced from Google Play. Connectivity to Google+ and its image editing service is also touted, with Google's 15GB of free storage adding on top of the 20GB the Nikon Image Space provides.

Capable of a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000s, it has face priority, subject tracking, target finding, and an automatic nine-area automatic selection autofocus, as well as a manual version, and an ISO range of 125 to 3200. It also includes a Wi-Fi connection, stereo headphone output, and a 1850mAh battery allowing for up to 270 shots on a single charge.

Nikon is shipping the Coolpix S810c in the UK in April and the US in May, priced at £250 and $350 respectively.
