Last night, Nikon announced one of their new point & shoot cameras, the Coolpix S1100pj. This 14.1 megapixel camera seems to look like many other P&S Nikons except for one thing, it’s also a projector! A neat feature, I personally would never have thought of, but I’m sure its great for showing pictures and video at a family gathering or in an impromptu situation. This model replaces the Nikon Coolpix S1000pj, which is very similar to this newer model, from the link you can see how the price of the Nikon S1000pj has dropped.
You can find the Nikon press release here.
Amazon is already taking pre-orders, I’m assuming the camera should start to ship in a few weeks. Price is $349.95. You can get the Green version of Nikon Coolpix S1100pj 14 MP Digital Camera or choose from other colors here Nikon Coolpix S1100pj.
I normally don’t talk so much about a regular point & shoot camera, but if the projector feature turns out to be powerful enough to do what is show in the promo video below, I suspect other makers will start to add this to their line of cameras.
