Among Nikon’s latest launch are two unusual point-and-shoot models. The first is a completely integrated mini ultra-compact with a 10 megapixels sensor and a 3X optical zoom lens, the Nikon Coolpix S01. This one uses a small 1/3″ size sensor to achieve an extremely compact 77 x 51 x 17mm (W x H x D) size. To further save space, this one features 7.3 GB of built-in memory rather than using a memory card and a built-in Lithium-Ion battery as well.
The second point-and-shoot is the Nikon Coolpix S800c, the first Android-powered digital camera. It relies on Android 2.3 to provide it with full application support, including web-browsing and games. This Android camera is extremely connected with WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities as well as a built-in GPS. The Android interface and most camera features are controlled by a 3.5″ touchscreen.
The photographic features of the S800c include a 16 megapixels CMOS sensor capable of shooting full 1080p HD video and a stabilized 10X ultra-wide-angle optical zoom lens equivalent to 25-250mm. This one uses a proprietary removable Lithium-Ion battery and standard SDHC memory cards.
The Nikon Coolpix S800c is scheduled to ship this September for $349 USD or $379 CDN. The Nikon Coolpix S01 also ships next month but for only $179 USD or $149 CDN. Now we know which one to buy on which side of the border!
