Sharing the Yuletide joy just got a little easier with the Nikon Coolpix S1000PJ, the first digital camera with a built in projector that allows users to display photos and videos anywhere. Kevin Pereira and Alison Haislip demonstrate the S1000PJ with its 12.1 mega pixels, advanced image stabilization, and more for $370.

What You Need To Know

  • The camera is pretty compact even with its built-in projector.
  • The device measures under an inch thick and weighs about 5.5 ounces.
  • The metal design makes the camera feel sturdy.
  • The interface is really easy to use and all the buttons are self-explanatory.
  • The LCD screen is easy to read.
  • The projector has a brightness of up to 10 lumens and displays up to a 40" image.
  • This is pretty comparable to the other pocket projectors we've reviewed, like the 3M MPro 120.
  • The projector works well for the most part: all you do is press one button, focus with the slider on the top and start projecting.
  • The camera can display photos and videos, but only at 640x480 resolution.
  • There's even a remote control for the projector feature.
  • Overall, this is a really impressive feature to have on a digital camera.
  • However, the full quality of the pictures are only average.
  • Most normal light photos looked good but there were times where we had soft focus.
  • Colors were bright and accurate.
  • Low light photos suffered, and there was still some blur, even with five different forms of image stabilization.
  • The flash was nice and didn't overexpose the photos.
  • The camera only records video at 640x480 resolution, which is not as high as other digital cameras.

Price

  • $350.00

Rating

  • Don't Buy. (How do we rate gadgets?)
  • We were impressed with Nikon's projector technology and see a future for it with new cameras, but the photos don't look as good for a $350 camera.
  • Check out the Canon SD940 if you're looking for a standard (and cheaper) point-and-shoot camera.
