A compact digital camera with its very own built-in projector, the Nikon S1100PJ ($299.95 list) offers a 14 megapixel image through its CCD image sensor, a 5x optical zoom Nikkor lens and more. The camera is controlled through a 3-inch touchscreen...

The Coolpix S1100pj fulfils its aim as a pocket projector well, with large clear images and the helpful inclusions of the built-in stand and remote. Indeed, this is the camera's major selling point and with no alternative than the S1100pj's...

If this were just a camera, without the unique projector feature, it would still come out quite well in this review. It is capable of producing decent quality images and the 5x zoom range is very useful, especially on a compact camera like...

The second of Nikon’s compacts cameras to feature a built-in projector (and only the second such camera in the world) is a neat compact that provides a really novel user experience thanks to the projector. Image quality lacks punch though and...

We can see a use for this little camera – in training sessions. If, for instance, you wanted to record a person training in public speaking or presentation and to give them an instant review of their performance this little camera/projector could...

A combined digital camera and pico projector is more likely to appeal to teenagers than business users, but it does have its moments in the workplace. We’re not convinced by the ability to use the projector with a laptop, as the dim image is...

Nikon created much interest last year with the launch of the first projector-equipped digital camera, the S1000pj, and many predicted that the feature would soon be commonplace. While we've yet to see it stray outside of Nikon's own Coolpix...

One-of-a-kind camera with clever photo-sharing features: a gimmick, but it works well Good points Unique concept; well built; 14 megapixels and 5x optical zoom; colourful and detailed images Bad points Costly; take away projector and you’re left...

The Nikon Coolpix S1100pj does an impressive job of letting you capture an image and project it with the same compact device. We look forward to Nikon bringing out a 3D version that will prove even more...

It may not be the most practical digital camera, but if you're a gadget nut then Nikon's COOLPIX S1100pj is almost a must-have item. It's not without its drawbacks, but it'll definitely make your friends 'ooh' and 'ahh'...

There are plenty of features to like about the Nikon COOLPIX S1100pj apart from its innovative built-in projector. As we've mentioned, its picture quality is actually very good and its lens is nice and wide. We also like its focus tracking and face...

Nikon has made improvements in key areas on the Coolpix S1100pj, although not significantly enough for my liking in image quality and light output. The touchscreen function makes for much more intuitive operation, and I hope Nikon persists because the...

Pros: Builtin projector is a very interesting option and works well, Camera design looks great with unique color options, Touch screen LCD is sharp and bright, even in sunlight, and includes shutter control, Camera exposure is really accurate most of the time,

Cons: Image quality is only average to slightly above average, If you don't need the projector feature, price is a little high, It would be nice to have the option of a directional button for working through menus, You may notice some focus or camera shake

International Review By Bild & Ljud Hemma on 50

Om S8100 hade haft högre optisk kvalitet så skulle den ha varit en vinnare. Nu lyckas Nikon bara nästan. Kameran är väldigt enkel att sköta och blixtsnabb, även i seriefoto, och bild- och video­kvaliteten är...
