Nikon today announced the COOLPIX S1100pj, its second projector-equipped digital camera, offering brighter projection and a larger touch panel monitor than its first digital camera with a built-in projector, the S1000pj.
The new COOLPIX S1100pj takes advanced technology a step further with a 40 percent brighter, 14-lumen internal projector complete with a built-in stand and an easy-to-use touch screen interface, allowing the user to share photos and movies in even more environments. By increasing projection brightness by 40%, projection is larger and clearer producing 47-inch projected images from over 7-feet away. In addition, adoption of a 3-inch TFT LCD touch panel monitor enables intuitive camera operation.
The COOLPIX S1100pj also supports projection of computer data when connected to a computer, increasing the ways in which the built-in projector may be used for both personal and business application. The COOLPIX S1100pj, with its brighter and clearer projection, simpler operation and support for a broader range of applications, continues to offer the necessary camera functions for recording still images and 720p HD movies. It is the model that proposes new ways to enjoy a digital camera with the ability to record and immediately share memories and lasting impressions anywhere and anytime.
The COOLPIX S1100pj features a 3-inch 460,000-dot touch LCD screen with Clear Color Display. A new Paint function allows users to write and draw on projected images in real time, while a wide range of new Retouch functions allow users to add stamps for an entertaining effect or rate their favorite photos for a more convenient search. Other new functions in the S1100pj's in-camera Retouch Menu include Soft, Selective Color, Cross Screen, Fisheye Effect, Miniature Effect and Makeup Effect, giving the user creative freedom without the need for a computer.
The 14.1-megapixel COOLPIX S1100pj includes a 5x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens (28-140mm) and a 5-way VR Image Stabilization System with ISO settings up to 6400 to ensure incredibly sharp, crisp images in low light or while shooting handheld. To further help users capture stunning photos easily, the S1100pj also features 17 scene modes, Subject Tracking, Easy Auto Mode and Nikon's Smart Portrait System all packed into a colorful, compact design.
At the core of all new COOLPIX cameras are Nikon's world-class NIKKOR lenses, delivering accurate detail, brilliant color and amazing clarity. For the first time, Nikon's new EXPEED C2 high performance digital image processing engine is implemented and custom-optimized for each COOLPIX model to ensure high-quality pictures with stunning color and sharpness. The new S-Series models embrace the addition of High Definition (HD) video accessible via an ideally located video record button on the back of the camera. Other COOLPIX features include Scene Auto Selector or Easy Auto Mode, which automatically recognizes the shooting situation and adjusts camera settings accordingly for great pictures anywhere. To help users create better portraits easier, the Smart Portrait System incorporates a series of automatic functions including In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, Improved Face-Priority AF, Face-Priority AE, Smile Mode, Blink Warning and Skin Softening to flatter even the most camera-shy subject (features vary by model).
