Photos and Full HD videos only a Nikon can capture

The brilliant image quality of a Nikon camera

So many moments deserve the superior image quality and zoom power of a camera. With the COOLPIX S800c, you no longer have to choose between great photos and connectivity—you get both! Shoot beautiful 16.0 megapixel photos and Full HD (1080p) videos, even in low light conditions. With a 10x optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens, zoom in to telephoto distances (25-250mm) and make faraway objects appear right in front of you. Forget about blurry images—Optical VR image stabilization means a little camera shake won't keep you from taking sharp photos. And when you're in a tricky shooting situation, let Scene Modes optimize the camera settings for you.

bluetooth don't work i am a Nikon fan. I have 4 nikon camera: D800, D7000, cool pix s3500 and recently purchased s800c. The only weak point in s800 is it,s bluetooth setting. I couldn,t set it,s conection with other divices. At all s800c is an excellent camera.don,t hasitate... Buy it. April 2, 2014
Great for uploading pics to social media I would recommend this camera to anyone who is familiar with smartphones. I myself have an android, though I found this camera really easy to use. I am a blogger and use Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram regularly and this camera is able to upload pictures straight to them using the local wifi. I bought this camera for mine and my daughter's first vacation and wanted a better way to share the pictures with my friends and family through social media while we were on our trip, instead of waiting until we got home. I have finally found the camera for me. May 13, 2013
Great camera! This camera is a great camera for somebody who wants a good camera. I love the features it has like the built in GPS, google play store so you could put games on your camera etc. great camera for the price. I'm writing the review on the camera right now!. I know people have said it takes long for the camera to come on at first it does but it hasn't taken long at all since.not a bulky big camera like some other cameras which I personally like. Very portable, the wifi runs fast and it takes great quality pictures!. Hope you like your nikon s800c like I do December 29, 2012
first camera in anroid it is a very good model,it is a camera with like asmart phones and it has a better megapixel and zoom, you can download any application and i like this model of nikon October 12, 2012
NewUser I just purchased this camera yesterday and am anxious to learn how to use all the special features. The camera seems to have a lot of potential...I love the GPS feature especially. I am hoping to find plenty of helpful videos to get me started. January 28, 2014

Answer: 
I can verify what diffdude says: The android Camera API only lists image sizes up to 3264x2448 as available sizes for taking pictures. It is currently impossible to develop a custom camera app for this thing which can take 16 MP pictures. To me this invalidates the entire point of putting android on the thing! Nikon desperately needs to provide an SDK addition with some classes android developers can use to get to all the features of this camera (and I checked: going through the SDK signup process does not lead you to any development material for the S800c).

Answer: 
I am writing my own android app, and the camera returns 8MP as the largest photo capture size.

Plus, optical zoom does not work in 3rd party android photo apps, it only uses digital zoom.

I would have thought they would have an SDK or documentation on how to get access to the optical zoom, which most other android devices do not have.

Answer: 
The camera app that is used to take pictures by default is still an Android app. Ergo, yes, it is possible to take 16MP pictures with an Android App.

Caveat: Most 3rd party apps have their own limitations on image size, which has very little to do with what the sensors are capable of. (Most are aware of the upper limits, if they happen to be lower than the app allows; for example, if the app allows up to 5MP, but the tablet only has a 1.2MP front-facing, the app won't try to take a 5MP picture. But if the phone supports up to 8MP, and the app only goes up to 5MP, 5MP is you limit with that app.)

Most current Android apps were built during the days when even the 8MP sensors in phones were rare enough, and 16MP was unheard of. Ergo, they app developers built their apps to the days common specs.

I've also seen some apps that have image size crippled in the free/ad-supported/demo version, but unrestricted in the full version.

Many of the common image editor apps (Pixlr-o-matic, AfterFocus, Instagram, etc) are capable of either taking a picture or loading one from your Gallery. However, in common use, most people ignore the load one from the Gallery feature and only use the from camera option...

If the apps you want to use will only snap pictures at 8MP, look to see if there's an import feature, also check the options to see if it allows for "save at original size" or something to that effect.

Hope this helps more than "read the manual" that you got from the official Nikon answer guy.

Answer: 
On Play Store I found only

WirelessMobileUtility
Nikon Corporation - February 5, 2014

I updated S800c firmware to v 1.3

When I start WirelessMobileUtility on my Smart Device (LG G2, Android 4.2.2) and "Upload"/"Simple Setup"/"Start" on my S800c I am getting "Camera Disconected" on smart phone and "Searching ... SSID: NikonAD000041107424" on my S800c

After some time S800c response with "Could not complete setup" with "camera disconected" on Smart Device and wireless icon is "backslashed"

Both wireless are enabled, with following combinations:

Smart Device - connected to WLAN / S800c - connected to same WLAN
Smart Device - connected to WLAN / S800c - not connected to wireless
Smart Device - not connected to wireless / S800c - connected to WLAN
Smart Device - not connected to wireless / S800c - not connected to wireless
Smart Device - connected to S800c's SSID
Smart Device has HotSpot Activated / S800c - connected to Smart Device's Hot Spot
Smart Device and S800c paired by Bluetooth

Any hint?

Answer: 
I use android apps Mapswithme and Navigator. These two apps uses the GPS but does not need wifi. The apps allow you to download the OSM maps of the states and/or countries that I visit. I only need the wifi to download the apps and the OSM maps. With the OSM maps, I am able to use this super smart camera as a Navigator (like TomTom and Garmin). With the OSM maps and Mapswithme, I instantly have my location on the map displayed on the screen. and instead of looking like a lost tourist with a printed map, I appear to be texting on a smart device. It is an outstanding travel tool with a great camera and lens. Just like a Garmin and TomTom, the GPS does not work inside parking garages and inside airports. This super smart camera is so useful that I carry two extra batteries and a charger when I travel. This device came with Google Map preinstalled. Google Maps work very well but requires wifi. When traveling, I look for the nearest free wifi to exploit the android apps to help me enjoy my travels. I use OSM offline with GPS to do a 'Search Nearby' restaurant, hotel, hospital, etc. I continue to be amazed on what I am able to do offline. Also, its a Nikon and takes great photos.

Answer: 
Nope, installed v1.1 and then v1.2 microcode when it arrived, and the cell standby still reports as using most of the power (but from lots of reading on the web about similar devices with no cell hardware and old android versions, this really seems more like a bad statistic being reported than an actual drain on real battery power).
