Nikon Coolpix S1100pj review

 

Depending on how much you like viewing your photos or letting others view your photos, the Nikon Coolpix S1000pj is either really cool or a waste. The compact camera houses an ultrasmall projector able to display photos and video at sizes up to 40...

Compact, attractive body with a projector built into the front for instant slideshows up to 40 inches in size.

Photo quality, shooting performance, and features are all that of a less expensive camera.

The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj is all about the built-in projector; if you don't need it, you don't need this camera.

Review: Nikon COOLPIX S1000pj

 

A point-and-shoot with a projector in it? Get out of town! It's true, and despite being super expensive, Nikon's novel shooter displays vibrant hi-def images...

The projector feature is Yuri Gagarin-stellar. Pictures were pretty good in most situations without having to adjust a lot of settings

Low-light pictures are a struggle, especially if the ISO has to be raised. Camera is heavy and bulky. Novel feature means early adopter price tag

Nikon Coolpix S1000pj

 

The Coolpix S1000pj is the first point-and-shoot camera that lets you project your images and video.

Built-in projector. Decent operating speeds.

Very expensive. Subpar feature set for the price. Soft images. Some color fringing. Bulky design. No lens cover to protect projector window.

Despite its other features, the projection capability of the S1000pj really makes you ask why. There is plenty of capacity right now to send digital copies of whatever you need around to your friends, so would you really feel the need to subject them...

Nikon Coolpix S1000pj Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj is the world's first camera with an integrated projector. A supplied remote control allows you to wirelessly operate both the projector and usual camera functions, and a simple projection stand is supplied for optimal viewing....

The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj caused quite a stir when it was announced. We are used to more and more features being crammed into digital cameras, but an integrated projector was something truly novel. And, while we are sure that the future will bring more...

Nikon Coolpix S1000pj Review

 

CONCLUSION The Nikon S1000pj was created for a specific set of photographers: the party-goer, proud parent, and all-around show-off are most likely to find this camera appealing. Based on my experience using the S1000pj, I'd say that if you fit into...

Sharp lens with minimal distortion, Projector has a nice "wow" factor, Good image quality

Noise at ISO 400 and up, Poor video quality, Limited exposure and processing controls, Cost

Nikon Coolpix S1000pj (projector camera) Review

 

Camera manufacturers can't use megapixels to woo savvy buyers any more, so they increasingly try to get our attention in other ways.

A decent point & shoot camera with a neat trick up its sleeve: a built in projector

Built-in projector; Decent color

Noise reduction can be ugly; Soft images at long zoom

The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj is a decent point & shoot camera with a neat trick up its sleeve: a built in projector. And it’s a good trick; the projector provides a whole new way to show off your photos.

Nikon COOLPIX S1000pj Digital Camera Review

 

Indeed this camera is a novelty in the affirmative sense of the word: it is fresh, interesting and innovative and while consumers will initially be struck by its exciting and previously unseen ability to project images and movies onto flat surfaces,...
