Nikon Coolpix S1200pj digital camera : Nikon introduces a new Coolpix S-series compact digital camera. The new Nikon Coolpix S1200pj features an built-in projector that incorporates advanced functions in a stylish design. The Nikon S1200pj is the third projector-equipped model from Nikon, offering a 40% increase in projection brightness and 3x greater projection contrast, enabling projection of vivid images at a projection size of up to 60-inch display. In addition, the Nikon Coolpix S1200pj can be connected to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch via the dedicated cable, allowing users to project images and movies stored on these devices as well as online content from websites such as YouTube.

Besides a good looking design, the Nikon Coolpix S1200pj offers new ways of using a camera with the ability to view and project pictures and videos photographers have recorded themselves, as well as images and videos acquired from the Internet. The Nikon Coolpix S1200pj offers clearer and more vivid image projection with the adoption of Digital Light Processing (DLP) for larger (up to 60-inch display) and brighter (40%) projection. The Nikon Coolpix S100 can switch from a single-lamp (color) projection system to a three-lamp (red, green and blue LEDs) projection system, this guarantees a display reproduction of roughly the entire sRGB gamut and a contrast ratio of 200 : 1 or better.

Adoption of a sliding projector cover that also serves to turn the Nikon S1200pj projector on and off prevents dust and foreign matter from adhering to the projector lens. Operation has also been improved with the automatic illumination of frequently used buttons on the rear of the camera during projection, making it easier to use these buttons in dark surroundings.
