Nikon's New Camera Doubles As A Projector For Your PC
The projector in the COOLPIX S1100pj is 40 percent brighter than its predecessor. This 14-lumen internal projector works with the camera's touchscreen user interface. For ease of use, the camera also has a built-in stand. The COOLPIX S1100pj can project images up to 47-inches from over 7-feet away.
Additional features with the COOLPIX S1100pj include a built-in slide show feature that plays photos with music, one-touch HD 720p video recording, and a 3-inch 460,000-dot LCD touchscreen with Clear Color Display. The camera also has editing features such as a new Paint function and new Retouch functions which let you edit your images directly from the camera.
The COOLPIX S1100pj has a 14.1 megapixel sensor, 5x wide-angle optical zoom lens (28-140mm), and 5-way VR Image Stabilization System with ISO settings up to 6400. The COOLPIX S1100pj will be available in September for $349.95 in black, violet, green, and silver.
Nikon also added the COOLPIX S5100 to its lineup. This camera features a fast start-up time, a short shutter-release time, and one-touch HD 720p movie recording at 30 fps. This 12.2 megapixel camera has a 2.7-inch LCD, 5x optical zoom, and a 4-way VR Image Stabilization System with ISO settings to 3200 at full resolution.
The COOLPIX S5100 also adds a new tripod detection function found on premium NIKKOR lenses. This feature will detect when the camera is on a tripod and adjust the exposure, ISO sensitivity, and shutter speed accordingly to reduce blur. The COOLPIX S5100 will be available in October for $179.95. It will come in four colors including black, pink, purple, and blue.
