Nikon Camera Contains Built-in Projector

Posted Tuesday, August 04, 2009

Now this is something completely different. Nikon's just-announced Coolpix S1000pj is a point-and-shoot camera that contains a built-in projector capable of projecting on a screen up to 40 inches across. Crazy!

I like the camera's specs, too: 12.1 megapixels, ISO speeds up to 6400, and VR image stabilization. It lists for $430 and hits stores in September. Engadget has published the press release.

I've been thinking about getting a new TinyCam for those times when I don't want to haul my digital SLR around. This might be the one, though I'm also intrigued by Panasonic's waterproof Lumix.

Sigh. So many cameras, so little money.
