Nikon announced the new CoolPix S1200pj digital camera with built-in projector, just like its predecessor, S1100pj. As Nikon’s third projector camera, the S1200pj offers a 40% increase in projection brightness and three times greater projection contrast, enabling projection of vivid images at a projection size of up to 60-inch display. It can even be connected to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch via the dedicated cable for showing images and movies stored on these devices as well as online content from websites such as YouTube.
The 14.1 Megapixel S1200pj comes with a 5x optical zoom NIKKOR lens with 28mm wide angle and a 3-inch LCD display. Its built-in pico projector uses a three-lamp (red, green and blue LEDs) projection system offering 200:1 contrast ratio and 20 lumens brightness. The camera is equipped with EXPEED C2 image processing engine and provides four image stabilization functions – Combined lens-shift and electronic vibration reduction (VR), support for high sensitivities up to ISO 6400 with little noise, motion detection, best shot selector (BSS). It has 18 built-in scene modes and easy auto mode that identifies the type of subject and automatically applies the optimum scene mode.
The Nikon CoolPix S1200pj will be released in September for $429.95 in black and pink.
