Nikon Inc. has announced the COOLPIX S810C, which combines Nikon’s powerful camera imaging technologies with the vast capabilities of the Android operating system (OS). Whether photographing friends dancing into the night or fast-action sports, the 16.0-megapixel COOLPIX S810C helps users to never again settle for sharing a sub-par smartphone photo to their
social networks.

“The COOLPIX S810C combines the best parts of a Nikon camera and the limitless possibilities of the Android operating system so users can seamlessly integrate their digital lives with their creative passions,” said Gregory Flasch, National Advertising and
Communications Manager at Nikon Canada. “S810C users will be able to stay connected and share everyday moments with ease through Full HD video and amazing stills.”

Capture and Share Photos Without Sacrificing Image Quality
The COOLPIX S810C provides users with the power to capture high-quality images in low-light or from a distance, delivering results that would otherwise be a challenge to capture with a smartphone. The S810C features a 16.0-megapixel, backside  illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor for excellent low-light shooting ability, and a 12x optical zoom NIKKOR lens (with 24x Dynamic Fine Zoom) to get the sharp shots from up close or far away. Further bolstering the low-light capability of the S810C, the camera has an ISO range up to 3200, as well as Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction (VR) to help prevent blurry photos, even while shooting
handheld. To capture those special moments, the camera also has a fast continuous shooting mode.

Stay Connected and Share Effortlessly with Built-in Wi-Fi
Whether liking a status or tagging a photo, COOLPIX S810C users can seamlessly share their most memorable moments with friends and family with the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. When accessing the Google Play store through the S810C, users have access to myriad apps including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others where they can share photos and stay connected. With the Android OS, users can surf the Web, read their latest emails, browse through their friends’ photos and
videos, navigate with maps as well as take advantage of many other functions offered by Android apps. By leveraging the built-in Wi-Fi capabilities of the S810C, users can directly share photos instantly with friends and family. When no external Wi-Fi network is available, users can also connect to a compatible smartphone or tablet via the dedicated “Connect to S810C” app in order to transfer, share and view their images on that smart device. Additionally, the COOLPIX S810C has built-in GPS for location-based apps, as well as a stereo headphone jack that allows users to operate their camera as a mobile media player device. With the S810C, users can easily navigate to their dinner date while listening to their favourite playlist, and then shoot and share their entrée as well as the night’s details with friends, all with the same device.

Proven Nikon Technologies and Features
Whether sharing, swiping, composing or navigating, users will appreciate the wide and bright 3.7-inch touch-screen LCD monitor with 1.2 million-dot resolution, as well as the ability to capture Full 1080p HD videos. S810C photographers can explore their creativity with a variety of special and creative effects including user-friendly modes and features like Easy Panorama, which allows users to simply sweep the camera to create an ultra-wide panoramic image. The camera also features a new enhanced battery, allowing users to stay connected longer.

The Nikon COOLPIX S810C is scheduled to be available at Authorized Nikon Canada Dealers on or about April 24, 2014, at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $369.95. It will be available in white.
