Just Posted: Nikon Coolpix S800c Review

Jeff: Welcome to DPReview; I look forward to your contributions increasing when you join the team full time!

Another good review; but I’d like to see more about the camera from a programmer’s perspective? This is what makes the camera (nearly) unique afterall!

Android means we can now program the camera, but I want to know how much we can change? How much of the camera functionality is exposed to developers?

For example: Can we access the RAW image from an app, and perform our own demosaicing, or is the image only ever presented to Android as a fully baked JPEG?

Can we program the lens focus via an app?

Now, I’ll admit this is niche information, and maybe it’s a better fit to a different site, but as a camera geek I want to know. I know there are many camera geeks here, so maybe they want to know too?

Any chance of a more in depth dig into the software/firmware guts of the beasty?
