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. I was pretty surprised at how well Nikon implemented a mini-projector into the Coolpix S1000pj.
  • 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 help tooltips, Easy to use; three useful playback editing tools, Very good bundle: includes projector stand and wireless remote
  • 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

  • Excerpt: Tools for sharing photos and videos are increasingly being seen in digital cameras these days. Features such as image enhancement and slideshow with background music and transition effect are common. Some cameras also offer selectable music tracks to go with the mood of your photos. Nikon has gone a few steps further and packed a projector in their latest addition to the Coolpix lineup, the S1000pj.

  • 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.

Nikon Coolpix S1000pj Review

Digital Camera Review
23 March 2010
  • Summary: CONCLUSION The Nikon S1000pj was created for a specific set of photographers: the party-goer, proud parent, and all-around show-off are most likely to find this camera appealing. Based on my experience using the S1000pj, I'd say that if you fit into one of the categories above, you won't be disappointed. Just don't expect it to outperform other basic Nikon point-and-shoots or to project images in bright rooms or against dark surfaces with stunning results.
  • Pros: Sharp lens with minimal distortion, Projector has a nice "wow" factor, Good image quality
  • Cons: Noise at ISO 400 and up, Poor video quality, Limited exposure and processing controls, 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 technology into a compact digital camera, the Coolpix S1000pj.

  • Excerpt: We like some tech because it lets us get more done in a day. We like some tech because it produces excellent results. And we like some tech, such as this outwardly unassuming compact digital camera from Nikon, because it surprises and delights.

Nikon Coolpix S1000pj Review

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. Add the projector and the ‘world first’ box is certainly well and truly ticked, yet there’s limited application and that fact it will only show images (no documents, basic text files, etc) will limit this from...
  • Pros: Projector, remote control
  • Cons: Light fall off at corners when shooting wide-angle, ISO 3200-6400 poor quality, price

  • Summary: This Nikon Coolpix S1000pj Review is based on a production model. All sample images are unretouched, except where specified. The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj is the world's first point-and-shoot digital camera with a unique built-in projector. It is a handsome ultra compact digital camera that easily slips into a Jeans pocket or a small fashion purse. Handling is good and the controls and menu are intuitive to use.
