Nikon's Second Generation "Projector" Camera Debuts

By September 19, 2010

Follow me on:

Tiny pico projectors, which can be about the size of a still image digital camera, are beginning to grow in popularity for a variety of situations, so it's only natural that digital cameras will begin offering built-in projectors.

Nikon is introducing its second generation of point and shoot cameras that offer a built-in projector, with the Coolpix S1100pj camera. The S1100pj's internal projector offers 14 lumens of light and can project an image from up to 7 feet away, which is an upgrade to what was available with the Coolpix S1000pj, announced in 2009.

The S1100pj includes a 3-inch, high-resolution, touch screen LCD; a 5X optical zoom lens with limited wide angle capabilities; 720p HD video recording; and 14.1 megapixels of resolution.

Nikon will offer the Coolpix S1100pj in a couple of traditional colors -- black and silver -- and a couple of non-traditional colors -- purple and pale green (pictured here). Look for the S1100pj to be available this month at an MSRP of $349.95. (Compare Prices)
