Nikon Coolpix S1000pj

Digital Photography Interface
28 September 2010
  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj is one of the more unique digital cameras of year 2009. Besides having the 12 megapixel sensor, 5X optical zoom lens and 2.7 inch LCD, along with other bells and whistles like your average point-and-shoot camera, the S1000pj also features a built-in projector.
  • Pros: Fairly good image quality; on par with much of the competition and few issues, Built-in projector with good performance, 5X optical zoom lens with optical image stabilization, 2.7 inch LCD with decent visibility, Automatic scene selection, elaborate face detection/portrait features and built-in h...
  • Cons: Images look a touch too soft, No HD video recording, So-so battery life for taking pictures; power-hungry projector will further reduce runtime, On-screen display lacks info about photos both in shooting/playback modes, Lack of manual controls, Limited burst mode

  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj's built-in projector offers a unique and fun picture- and video-playback experience, but when it comes to performance and features this $400+ camera doesn't deliver.
  • Pros: Built-in projector. Decent operating speeds.
  • Cons: Very expensive. Subpar feature set for the price. Soft images. Some color fringing. Bulky design. No lens cover to protect projector window.

Digital Camera Review
23 March 2010
  • Summary: Every time I tried to describe the Nikon Coolpix S1000pj to someone, my words fell flat. “It’s a projector camera. A camera with a projector inside.” It seems straightforward, but people didn’t fully grasp the concept until I turned the camera on and projected an image onto a wall.
  • Pros: Minimal distortions, Sharp lens, Good images overall
  • Cons: Noise at ISO 400, Poor video quality, Cost

  • Excerpt: It only seems like yesterday that so-called 'Pico' projectors, battery-powered and pocketable, first arrived on the scene. Battery-friendly LED illumination and successful miniaturisation of projector imaging components made Pico projectors a reality and now Nikon has incorporated this projector...

Review: Nikon COOLPIX S1000pj

Wired
13 November 2009
  • Excerpt: When Nikon released the S1000pj, we were stoked about having a projector grafted to a traditional digital camera. When we put it to the test, the camera did a decent job but was definitely, ahem, outshone by its luminous counterpart.
  • Pros: The projector feature is Yuri Gagarin-stellar. Pictures were pretty good in most situations without having to adjust a lot of settings.
  • Cons: Low-light pictures are a struggle, especially if the ISO has to be raised. Camera is heavy and bulky. Novel feature means early adopter price tag.

What Digital Camera
26 October 2009
  • Summary: The Nikon S1000pj is definitely an innovative product, but it just falls a tiny bit short of the mark. First and foremost it should be a camera – and image quality, light fall off at the wide angle, and lack of manual controls and a better overall layout lack.
  • Pros: Projector, remote control
  • Cons: Light fall off at corners when shooting wide-angle, ISO 3200-6400 poor quality, price

11 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Indeed this camera is a novelty in the affirmative sense of the word: it is fresh, interesting and innovative and while consumers will initially be struck by its exciting and previously unseen ability to project images and movies onto flat surfaces, soon after they will realise the camera itself is...

Nikon Coolpix S1000pj

CNET
7 October 2009
  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj is pricy and its projector is rather feeble, but, if you like your camera to sport wacky and original features, you might just be hooked
  • Pros: Projector sounds stupid in theory but is quite impressive in practice; included projector stand and remote; really easy to use.
  • Cons: Weak projector; expensive; pretty ordinary as a camera.
