Nikon COOLPIX S Range: The Details

The new Nikon Coolpix S range highlights the impact smartphone technology is having on digital cameras.

Digital cameras were until very recently seen as one of the most amazing pieces of technology in the world; a massive leap from the nineteenth century world of film, blurred exposure and dark rooms. But then along came the smartphone – a device that can take photographs and make calls, as well as a whole lot more.

But there is still a place for digital cameras, especially among the pro-am segment, where users want a camera for taking photographs, not for taking calls and playing Angry Birds. All of this must have been in the mind of Nikon when they developed the new Nikon Coolpix S range.

Among their new range of digital cameras is the COOLPIX S800c, which comes with Wi-Fi and is equipped with Android OS. The small, compact digital cameras also features a high power zoom and a built-in touch panel. So it looks like many of the features we like from our smartphones have found their way into the latest digital camera range.

Here’s some details on the new S6400 and COOLPIX S800c Nikon COOLPIX S range;

Nikon S6400

The S6400 comes with a CMOS image sensor and has an impressive pixel count of 16million pixels and a 12x optical zoom. Advanced photo functions include Target Finding AF; Quick Effects (Pop, Super vivid, Painting, High key, Toy camera effect, Low key, Cross process, Soft, Fisheye, Cross screen, Miniature effect, High-contrast monochrome, Sepia, Cyanotype, Selective colour) and a fully functioning HD recording function – perfect for YouTube movie making enthusiasts.


The S800c is powered by Google Android and has a built-in Wi-Fi compatibility, just like a smartphone. The device has 16million pixels and 10x optical zoom lens. The S800c is undoubtedly targeting those smartphone users who like taking good photos, but are often left disappointed.

Nikon claim that the new device will help capture ‘sharp, blur-free and beautiful images’ that smartphones fail to get right. You can also post straight to social networks via the device. Support for Google Play and built-in Google apps are also included in the device. Like the S6400 it also has full HD capability too.
