We heard it from the rumor mill first – that there is going to be a camera that works from the Android platform, can connect to the internet and online social networking sites and is relatively inexpensive – but back then, I was doubtful whether it was at all relevant because most of our phones have pretty good cameras as it is. Why launch a camera that works pretty much the same way the smartphone works WITHOUT the call function? Well, if it had a call function…that would make everything confusing.
But anyway, Nikon recently announced that they are going to be releasing the world’s very first Gingerbread Android 16-megapixel camera with 10x zoom function. Word has it that the phone…no, camera…can hook onto Wifi connections and has full access to Google Playstore.
This got me curious. Does this mean that we can download all the apps that we have on our tablets and phones onto the camera as well? If it is going to be a touchscreen camera, does this mean that we can now have our Temple Run fix on the camera too?
But of course, with a camera like that, Instagram is an essential – how else do we share the food pictures that we never stop taking? And with access to Twitter and Facebook, we are pretty sure people will be endlessly taking pictures, if the quality of the pictures are substantially better than the ones we take on our phones.
One of the greatest things about an Android camera is that you can put it on a tripod, the quality is most-of-the-time better than a phone’s camera and it is also more stable because of its size and functions.
Together with the camera, Nikon is also geared to launch its very own app called Picturetown…as if we don’t already have enough places to post our pictures up to. Just like Instagram, the app lets you geotag the pictures, letting others know where the picture was taken instantly when others load up the picture.
Am not sure how people are going to take to the new camera. If you have an opinion, please do feel free to share with us in the comment box. Is it going to make people drop their phones and pick up their cameras more?
