Sporting a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, a 10x optical zoom lens and a high-resolution 3.5-inch OLED touchscreen, the Coolpix S800c is Nikon's first compact camera to run Google's Android operating system.
With Android, users can download applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, among many others, to share their images directly from the camera. "The Coolpix S800c is a camera that acts smart and has been designed to enhance connectivity for photographers," says James Loader, product manager for consumer products at Nikon UK.
"The Coolpix S800c helps you to capture a stunning image and then allows you to instantly share them via social media platforms, extending your experiences to friends and family. As soon as you've got your shot, you simply tap the screen to upload to Facebook, Twitter or to send via email, for example."
Users can also download other apps and games, transforming the camera into a media centre, says Nikon.
As for its more traditional features, the Coolpix S800c has a 10x optical zoom lens equivalent to a focal length of 25-250mm in the 35mm format. It uses an ED glass for "superior sharpness" and sports blur-reduction technology.
The Coolpix S800c will be available in white or black from 27 September. It retails at £380.
