A digital camera on the front, Google Android v.4.2.2 smart device on the back

Nikon Coolpix S810c This Nikon COOLPIX S810c Digital Camera is a digital camera on the front and a Google Android v.4.2.2 smart device on the back. The COOLPIX S810c shoots photos like a point and shoot with a 16MP CMOS low-light image sensor and a 12x optical zoom lens and allows you to edit them using your choice of Google Play apps. Then you can use the built-in Wi-Fi to upload the photos to your favorite social media websites. Additionally, you can check your email, browse the web, and stream music. If you are out of Wi-Fi network range, you can still wirelessly transfer your photos to a compatible smartphone or tablet using the optional "Connect to S810c" app.

The camera features lens-shift VR, or vibration reduction image stabilization, which helps keep your photos steady even when your hands are not. To view your photos, there is also a large 3.7" rear touch-screen display. Additionally, there is full HD 1080p video with stereo sound and a built-in GPS.

Google Android v4.2.2 Powered Smart Device

    Nikon has integrated Google Android version 4.2.2 into their COOLPIX cameras with the S810c, and that means the Google Play library of apps is available to you on your camera. With this technology you can download your favorite photo editing apps, or your favorite games. Edit the photos you're taking and upload them to your favorite sites in your camera without computers or cables. You can even wirelessly transfer images from your camera to compatible smartphones and tablets. Attach them to an email and send them with the built-in Wi-Fi, then message friends to meet up and take more pictures.
16MP CMOS Sensor
    Capture detail and texture with the camera's 16MP CMOS low-light image sensor, which provides clarity to your images even to the long end of the optical zoom. Having a high-resolution CMOS sensor is great for shooting indoors or low light situations and is ideal for creating larger prints.
High-Resolution 3.7" Touch-Screen
    Photos and videos are a joy to view on the 3.7" touch-screen display with 1.2-million dots of resolution, bringing your image to life. The extra large size of the screen also makes it easy and comfortable to use apps, watch videos, and browse the internet.
12x Optical Zoom Nikkor Lens
    The S810c features a long 12x optical zoom range taking you from wide group shots to telephoto close-ups in an instant. To get even closer, there is 24x Dynamic Fine Zoom that effectively doubles your reach.
Full HD Video
    Record high-resolution full HD 1080p video with stereo sound and connect it to an HDTV with an optional cable to make your memories come to life.
