An impending update to the mini-projector sporting S1000pj we adored is on its way, according to leaked images by German mag Foto Digital. The S1100pj will add a touch screen and remote control, as well as other unrevealed improvements.
We were enamored by Nikon's first-gen projector camera, the S1000pj, but for the price ($430) we expected better photographic quality. This second-gen model Nikon's rumored to be planning is expected before August, with a lower price with any luck.
The setup looked ingenious. Using a series of photos and the projectors on a bunch of those quirky Nikon Coolpix S1000pj projector cameras, these two tots looked to be recreating a Daft Punk music video. Then they started dancing.
I don't think we've written a single story about the S1000pj without making fun of it somehow, and now I feel bad. Yes, a projector-camera is still a patently ridiculous piece of hardware, but I'm kinda of crazy about it.
Nikon's new Coolpix point-and-shoot line leaked yesterday, but today Nikon unveiled the official prices and specs (though no release dates) for all four cameras, including the crazy S1000pj with the built-in projector.
