Here Amy Davies of our testing team takes a look at what the Nikon Android camera has to offer in our Nikon S800c review.
Even before the Canon EOS M was announced in July it was the subject of intense speculation and interest.

The new Sony NEX-F3 replaces the NEX-C3 and features a 16-million-pixel CMOS sensor, improved grip and 180 flip up screen. In our new video, Amy from our testing team takes a look at what the Sony NEX-F3 has to offer.
This morning Sony announced its ‘game-changing’ compact camera, the RX100, which has created quite a buzz with its 1-inch Exmor CMOS sensor, full manual control and fast f/1.8-4.9 Carl Zeiss 3.6x optical zoom lens with an equivalent focal length of 28mm-100mm. Our testing team was one of the first to get their hands on Sony’s new premium compact camera and spent the long weekend here in the UK testing out its impressive spec list.
Our team has posted the first full, scientific Sony RX100 review over on our sister site, TechRadar. So go there for all your RX100 sample photos, noise charts and more. If you want some of the review highlights and the verdict… well, find out inside what our experts thought.
Inside Fuji’s first compact system camera (CSC), the Fuji X-Pro1, is a 16.3 million pixel X-Trans CMOS that produces images of up to 15.89MP. This means that when images are printed at 300ppi, they are just a small fraction short of full A3 size – ideal for most enthusiast photographers.
Although this sensor is APS-C sized, Fuji claims that its cunning design enables the X-Pro1 to produce images that are superior to those from a full frame DSLR like the Canon EOS 5D Mark II or Nikon D700.
The Nikon 1 system marks a new era in Nikon’s history: it’s the company’s first digital compact system camera and it introduces the first new Nikon lens mount since 1959
