Rumors Suggest Nikon Camera / Projector Combo

Details are still pretty sparse, but Nikon Rumors is reporting that Chasseur d'Image (a French magazine that has a history of publishing rumors that turn into reality) has published an article that talks about a new Nikon camera with the code name Nikon VP650.

According to the report, the Nikon VP650 is expected to be announced in August and shipping in September. What’s really cool about the Nikon VP650 is that it will have an integrated LED projector that could project up to 8x12 images in good quality in the dark. The VP650 will be a compact camera.

Another report from Photo Review offers some additional information, calling the camera the Coolpix S1000pj. According to Photo Review, the camera’s projector will be able to project an image up to 40 inches in size. The camera will supposedly come with a remote control and projector stand. The camera itself will be a 12.1 megapixel model with a 5x Zoom-Nikkor lens with 28mm wide-angle coverage. Pricing is said to be around $587.
