Nikon Coolpix S1000pj projector cam officially unveiled

Following on from rumours yesterday, Nikon has officially unveiled the Coolpix S1000pj, a high-end compact complete with built-in projector.Able to pr

Able to project images from 5 to 40-inches in size, Nikon said it hoped the built-in projector would be a new way for friends and family to share photos with one another, when showing off your snaps on the camera’s 2.7-inch LCD screen just won’t do.

To set the projector going, you simply press a dedicated button to play stills or video onto any flat surface, and use the slider on top for focusing. As you'd expect, the closer you are to a wall, the sharper and brighter the image is.

Aside from the projector, the camera also packs 12.1 megapixels, a 5x wide-angle optical zoom, and high sensitivity up to ISO 6400.

It will also come complete with Nikon’s Scene Auto Selector mode, a “skin softening” function, face tracking, and anti-shake functionality.

The S1000pj will be available in September for £399.99, and you’ll be able to pick it up in a choice of black or silver.

Keep it locked to for a hands-on video very soon, and be sure to let us know what you think to Nikon’s latest innovation below.
