This morning, Nikon UK announced a range of new compact digital cameras, including the new Coolpix S800c – the first Nikon compact camera to include an Android operating system to easily connect to the internet.
You’re probably thinking, hang on a second, Smartphones have been able to take pictures, movies and connect to the internet for ages now, and of course you wouldn’t be wrong. However, with the S800c, you’ll be able to get a much higher quality image that you can then upload to a website of social media site using the Android OS and built-in Wi-Fi, or if you are not near a Wi-Fi hotspot, you can transfer images from the camera to your Smartphone or tablet.

Last week, Nikon UK announced their latest addition to their relatively new ‘1 series’ of interchangeable lens cameras, with the J2.

The Nikon 1 cameras have been specifically designed for users that have been using a compact camera for a while, and wish to be more creative, yet don’t want the size of a traditional Digital SLR. Nikon have also designed them in such a way that high-speed performance can be achieved in a variety of situations, by incorporating an advanced hybrid autofocus system.
