Nikon Coolpix S1100PJ camera with integrated projector
The Nikon Coolpix S1100PJ is the successor to the award-winning S1000pj, the world’s first camera with an in-built projector, and allows new ways of image viewing and sharing, without the need for additional equipment or having to crowd round the camera’s LCD display. At 14 lumen, the projector is 40% brighter than its predecessor, enabling projection in new situations such as in lighter rooms or against lighter surfaces. It can also be linked to your PC or Mac so stored pictures or presentations can be shown instantly through the projector.
14.1 megapixel Nikon Coolpix S1100PJ camera
Boasting a 14.1 megapixel sensor, a wide-angle 5x zoom Nikkor lens, and 7.5 cm (3.0 inch) extra high resolution (460K-dot) touch-screen LCD monitor for intuitive touch control, the Nikon Coolpix S1100PJ is not just a fancy gadget but is a typically high-quality Nikon camera. To ensure crisp photographs every time, the Nikon Coolpix S1100PJ digital camera contains five functions to reduce image blur, while convenient modes such as Easy Auto mode and Smart Portrait System mean you don’t have to worry about choosing the right setting for your shot, leaving you to focus on getting just the right picture.
Retouch features on the Nikon S1100PJ digital camera
The Nikon Coolpix S1100PJ also introduces a range of retouch features so you can really get creative, including Fisheye effect, selective colour highlighting on an otherwise monochrome picture, and background softening, so you don’t have to go anywhere near a computer to edit your images. To liven up your slideshows you can use the built-in animations, background music or slide transitions. Finally, the Paint function means you can add handwritten annotations to your images, even while you are projecting them on a wall.
