Point and shoot cameras have all been the same, relying either on optics or gimmicks to stand out from the crowd. How can you make a camera better when it shoots in great quality? Toss Android onto it, of course!
The rumored Nikon S80C will be a traditional point and shoot with a big touchscreen showing off Android Gingerbread. The app selection will appeal to many, who want to ruin great quality photos with Instagram (I kid!). Also various connectivity options mean you can post photos straight to sites, instead of needing a computer to do so. Possibilities are expanded by the inclusion of Android, and this could very well be a great device.
What do you guys think? Is an Android powered camera a good idea? Or just a gimmick? Will it pair well with Nikon’s famed image quality, or will it be a detriment to it? Tell us in the comments!
