When Dpreview.com camera reviewer Amadou Diallo found himself assessing a smartphone camera for our mobile photography site, Dpreview Connect, he had his doubts about what the hardware could accomplish. But his review of the HTC X One (published late last year) challenged his preconceptions about camera phone photography and inspired him to embrace both the limitations and the possibilities of shooting with a mobile device.
The Nikon Coolpix S800c is the first compact camera from a major manufacturer to openly use the Android mobile operating system. On one side it’s a 16MP BSI-CMOS compact camera with a 10x, 25-250mm lens built in, on the other it’s a 3.5” OLED touchscreen device running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
We’ve had an opportunity to use a pre-production camera and have prepared an overview of the first real compact camera/smartphone hybrid.
We’ve posted our in-depth, 20-page review of the Nikon D3200 entry-level DSLR.
The Nikon D3200 is the company’s 24MP entry-level DSLR that can be used with an optional WU-1a Wi-Fi module. The camera can shoot up to 1080p30 video (rather than the D3100’s 24p) and has a 920k dot LCD, up from 230k dots. Beyond this, and improved continuous shoot rate despite the pixel-count hike, the biggest change is the ability to add the Wi-Fi unit.
