This handsome camera with a slightly retro style looks to be a real breakthrough for Nikon, with its compact form and large-camera sensor.”

A Smart Camera that takes app integration to the extreme is the Nikon COOLPIX S800c. If you’ve ever wanted a smart phone with a 25-250mm NIKKOR glass lens, the S800c is about as close as it gets. While this point-and-shoot camera cannot make telephone calls, it does run an Android operating system and feature a 3.5” OLED touch screen. You can play Angry Birds and shoot photos of birds from the same camera. There is also a wide range of photo apps that are available to download directly into the camera from the Google Play store. There are photo-editing apps, retouching apps, filter apps, time-lapse apps—you name it. The COOLPIX S800c is available in black and white.
