Camera Reviews: Casio Exilim ZR1000 and Nikon Coolpix S800c

Two very different compact cameras

This week we're reviewing two very different cameras, the Casio Exilim ZR1000 compact and the Nikon Coolpix S800c on Android.

Following the nice, but rather basic Exilim ZR200, Casio is back with the ZR1000—a model that stands far apart from other Exilims thanks to its tilt-screen, RAW mode and customisable settings wheel around the lens. But while the design may have changed and the ZR1000 may have a few new features, it still inherits some key specs from the ZR200, namely the 16-Megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and 24-300 mm lens.

Announced at the end of August 2012, the Nikon Coolpix S800c was the first consumer compact to adopt Google's Android OS, more frequently seen in smartphones and tablets. A week later, Samsung arrived on the scene with the Galaxy Camera, which we've already had the pleasure of testing in our labs. The two firms have inevitably taken different approaches to building their Android cameras. So how does this classic camera-maker's venture into the world of Google's OS compare with that of smartphone-making electronics all-rounder Samsung? Time to find out!
