Nikon announce new point and shoot camera, lens

Nikon has recently announced they are releasing a new Coolpix point and shoot camera along with a new 18-300mm f3.5-6.3g lens. The Coolpix S810c camera is a 16mp point and shot camera and comes with the latest 4.4.2 version of Android KitKat operating system. This means that a person will be able to use all of their camera apps that they might have on their Android, so you can directly upload your photos instantly to Instagram and even edit your photos using VSCO Cam all conveniently on the camera. If you’re in the market for a point and shoot camera, you may want to look into it when it releases sometime in May for around $350.

Along with the Coolpix s810c, Nikon also announced a new 18-300mm lens 3.5-6.3g lens which is supposed to be 30% lighter than its predecessor. Because of the loss in weight, when the lens is fully zoomed it will lose about 1/3 of stop light, but it is built to minimize lens flare and chromatic aberration. The lens will come in at around $900, and like the Coolpix point and shoot camera, should be release sometime in May.

Move over Samsung–you’re not the only game in town trying to get further into the Android-powered camera world. Today Nikon introduced the Coolpix S810c, a 16MP point-and-shoot camera preloaded with the latest 4.4.2 version of Android KitKat.

Nikon promises the camera will let users launch all their favorite Android camera apps without the compromises of a lackluster smartphone snapper. The Coolpix S810c is equipped with a 12x optical zoom Nikkor lens, albeit with an unimpressive f3.3-6.3 variable aperture. It might not produce very shallow depth of field but the Coolpix backside illuminated CMOS sensor should make up for the lack of light coming through that somewhat narrow aperture lens. Read on for more about Nikon’s new Android camera plus the new 18-300mm lens for its DX DSLRs.

More details are after the jump.

 

Just like the Samsung Galaxy NX and the Galaxy Camera 2, the Coolpix S810c will be able to use Android’s full range of camera apps. This includes everyone’s favorite Instagram, VSCO and Camera Zoom FX. The camera is also backed by a massive 3.7-inch touch-screen LCD monitor with 1.2 million-dot resolution, which should make it more than decent for photo editing apps like VSCO Cam.

The Nikon Coolpix S810c will be available by early May 2014 in Black or White for a $349.95—just a little more than your high-end Android smartphone.
