Nikon Coolpix S1200pj Review

 

While the S1200pj is heavy on the wallet at $429.95 USD, it offers great performance, image quality, and plenty of easy to use exposure options. The projector feature makes the camera worth the extra coin over other compact cameras with similar...

Awesome projector for sharing with friends and family; all you need is a flat surface to project onto ; Easy to use and carry ; Captures nice 14-megapixel photos ; Versatile zoom ; Lens-Shift Image Stabilization ; High-quality 3.0-inch LCD ; 720p HD...

No full HD video option ; ISO 3200 and 6400 show a ton of imager noise ; No external battery charger ; No HDMI outout ; No AV cables ; Projector drains battery quick ; Expensive

Nikon Coolpix S1200pj Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S1200pj is the world's third camera with an integrated projector, replacing last year's S1100pj model. The new S1200pj has a 40 percent brighter internal projector and three times greater projection contrast than its predecessor...

The thrid-generation Nikon Coolpix S1200pj is still the only camera with a built-in projector on the market, further refining last year's model mainly by signifcantly improving the projector unit and ditching the S1100pj's touch-screen interface. The...

Nikon COOLPIX S1200pj

 

The "pj" here stands for "projector", for the S1200pj actually includes a built-in projector for displaying images or a supported Apple device. While the projector is brighter and displays larger than the S1100's, unfortunately the imaging half of the...

Nikon Coolpix S1200pj Review – The Ultimate Projector Cam

 

The Nikon Coolpix S1200pj digital camera is breed of its own, migrating a 20-lumen projector into its compact point-and-shoot body. Believe it or not, this is Nikon's third projector cam, and after a full testing phase, I can safely report…

Nikon Coolpix S1200pj review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S1200pj is the brand's third-generation projector-wielding compact digital camera incorporating iPhone capability

Fast power up ; Easy to use ; Built-in projector

No HDMI port ; Pricey ; Video not full HD

It has to be noted that thankfully the S1200pj is no mere gimmick masquerading as a camera, but a decent enough camera in its own right if you took away the projector facility entirely. That’s as it should be and was we expect from Nikon. The only...

Nikon Coolpix S1200pj

 

At one time - say the mid 1970s to mid 1980s - projecting our photographs or Super 8 films was the chief way to share holiday exploits and pictorial adventures with friends and family. In the digital age, when most of our snapshots are dumped on a hard...

Projector is handy, camera is still compact

Expensive

More than just a mere compact camera, but rather - if we’re feeling grand - a broadcast device, the Coolpix S1200pj satisfies on several levels. However, ironically, image quality isn’t its strongest point.

Nikon Coolpix S1200pj review

 

Nikon's new 14.1MP projector camera features iPhone & iPad compatibility

Decent projector ; Bright 3-inch screen ; Build quality ; iPhone/iPad connectivity (cable required) ; Useful level of on-board effects

Expensive ; 5 hour full battery charge time ; Disappointing medium/high ISO performance ; Camera features available on cheaper compacts ; Fairly bulky

Nikon released the world's first digital camera with a built-in projector in September 2009. The Coolpix S1000pj offered an easy, retro-tuned way to share photos and video clips with your nearest and dearest, although the tech came at a cost. Its...

Nikon Coolpix S1200pj Review

 

Nikon has been trying to revolutionize cameras by adding in-built projectors for the better part of the last three years. They had introduced the S1000pj back

The Nikon S1200pj is available in India at a street price of Rs.13,300. If a person is looking out for a camera with manual or semi manual settings then this is not the option for them. This camera has really good features and is basically designed for...

Nikon Coolpix S1200pj review

 

You'll need a special cable (not supplied) to connect your Apple devices, with a port on the camera's side for this purpose, alongside AV and USB 2.0 output. The flipside is that the Nikon sacrifices HDMI output in the process, but it could be argued...

Integral projector aside, this Coolpix is still a decent camera in its own right with picture quality on a par with a £200 point-and-shoot snapshot. However, this one retails for £379.99. To be critical, at maximum 28mm wide-angle setting there’s some...

Nikon Coolpix S1200pj

 

Is there a market for cameras with a projector built-in? Nikon seems to think so.

On top of the projector, the camera also gets special effects and filters to change the look of images. The projector is stated to be 40 per cent brighter than previous models, though there is no lumens or brightness rating provided. A design tweak in...
