London, UK, 10th April 2014 Nikon today announces the new Android™¹ OS (version 4.2.2 Jelly Bean) powered COOLPIX S810c – the compact camera designed to make life even more social. With improved image quality and enhanced functionality, it offers fantastic photography features and connects to the Internet so you can access your favourite social media channels and gaming apps from Google Play™.
A significant improvement on its predecessor, the camera takes you closer to the action with its impressive 12x NIKKOR optical zoom lens, doubling to 24x Dynamic Fine Zoom² for finer detail. Its sensitive back-illuminated 16-megapixel CMOS sensor captures great shots as well as Full HD movies, even in low light conditions, and its built-in Wi-Fi means you can instantly share your efforts on social media.
With a wider 9.4cm (3.7in) LCD touch screen than the previous model, operating the camera is easier than ever. The sensitive high-resolution 1229k-dot screen means scrolling through your photos, browsing social media sites or playing games in your camera is simple and fun. Plus, you can enjoy your camera for longer. The prolonged battery life gives you the power to keep shooting, and you can even carry-on using the camera while the battery is charging through the micro USB port.
With its Android operating system, the COOLPIX S810c gives you instant access to Google+™ so you can connect with your friends and family and join communities directly from your camera. Not only can you share your images with others but, if the 20GB of free storage available through the pre-installed Nikon Image Space isn’t enough, you can access the Google Drive™ cloud service for unlimited space for low-res photos and 15GB of free storage for larger files.
