A dozen new kinds of point-and-shoot cameras flood electronics storeseach year, and that's often just from a single company. To distinguishitself, Nikon took an interesting approach with its Coolpix S1000pj.Instead of focusing on pictures, this camera...

In dark rooms, built-in projector will wow friends. Vibration reduction helps hold images steady. Vibration reduction helps hold images steady. Fun novelty features include smile and blink detection

Image details can lack definition. Room lighting washes out projector. Lacks full manual controls. Extra features aren't useful on a regular basis. Red-eye mode only moderately effective

While its image quality is only adequate, the novelty of its built-in projector lifts the Coolpix S1000pj above otherwise similar point-and-shoot cameras.

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.

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 up to 72 inches.

The projector feature is Yuri Gagarin-stellar. Pictures were pretty good in most situations without having to adjust a lot of settings ; TIRED Low-light pictures are a struggle, especially if the ISO has to be raised. Camera is heavy and bulky. Novel...

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

As the point-and-shoot digital camera market matures, it seems like flashy, never-before-seen features are what manufacturers are using to make their shooters stand out of the crowded pack. Case in point: The $350 Samsung DualView TL225, which features...

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

The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj's built-in projector offers a unique and fun picture- and video-playback experience, but when it comes to performance and features this $400+ camera doesn't deliver.

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

Noise reduction can be ugly; Soft images at long zoom
