Nikon camera with built-in projector!
Nikon released a new camera that sounds like something you would find in a sci-fi movie. The Nikon S1000pj, has a 2.7” screen, a 12.1 mega pixel sensor, and a VGA projector. The dimensions of the camera are; Height: 2.5 in. (62.5mm) Width: 4 in. (99.5mm) Depth: 0.9 in. (23mm), and only weighs 5.5 oz. The camera has an ISO setting of up to 6400, with a 5x zoom. The projector can put a 40 inch projection on to the wall. The camera comes with a remote control and a tri-pod stand. The output resolution for the protector is VGA (640 x 480) and it will be able to play recorded videos, and play slide shows of the pictures you take. This little gadget will be running you around $430 USD.
When I heard about this camera I really couldn't believe it. I've been waiting for an affordable camera like this. Instead if hooking up your camera to your laptop, or even your TV, you can just throw up image slide shows and videos on to the wall! You can brag to your friends by showing them your vacation pictures projected in high quality on to any wall! This is a major step into the future for in the camera industry. Hopefully we will be seeing a lot more cameras that are offering new and more advance capabilities.
