Nikon has a new take on point-and-shoot digital cameras: it’s one with a built-in projector. Yes, that means you don’t need to upload your pictures to a large-screen monitor or plug into a TV. Just point your camera at the nearest wall and share with everyone.
The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj is the world’s first such digital camera. It is a 12.1 Megapixel camera with a 5x wide-angle Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens, a 5-way VR image stabilization system and a 2.7″ LCD screen.
And the projector? It can project 10″ to 6’6″ away, with VGA-equivalent resolution to produce images up from 5″ to 40″ large. Not too shabby. Battery life is about an hour, which is not too long to start boring everyone. Amazon has a nice video of this camera in action.
The S1000pj is a bit pricey, but that usually comes with being 1st to the table. But to be fair, it has a slew of features that are usually found in more advanced point-and-shoots.
