Our verdict

The Nikon Coolpix S800c has the feel of a camera rushed through to be the first of its kind. It offers a glimpse of how smart cameras can revolutionise photography, which is an exciting prospect given that the technology will probably be developed further and find its way into more high-end cameras. Apart from its Android functionality, think of the S800c as a consumer-level compact with an excellent screen but poor battery life.
