Summary: If you like unique features in your digital camera, it's impossible to ignore the built-in projector with the Coolpix S1100pj camera from Nikon. The S1100pj's projector offers 14 lumens of light, which is an upgrade over what was available with Nikon's first projector camera, the .
Pros: Built-in 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, Camera is very easy to use, thanks to var...
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 problems in low light on occasion
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S1100pj adds a projector to an otherwise simple ultra-compact camera. Its projector is a unique feature to instantly share images and videos using an available surface up to 47" diagonally.
Pros: Rich image colors up to ISO 800, Reliable automatic white balance, Good metering system, No optical distortion, Reliable autofocus, Short shutter lag, Good LCD visibility, Solid build quality
Cons: Visible noise at all ISO settings, Useless output from ISO 1600, Pronounced vignetting, Slow shot to shot speed, Slow playback mode, Inefficient interface, Video takes 2½s to start, Impossible to setup initial framing for HD video, Below average battery life, Useless continuous drive mode
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S1100pj is arguably a better-looking camera than the model it replaces, and it's hard not to be impressed with its headline feature. Even so, frustrating operation and unreliable image quality make it a difficult camera to recommend.
Pros: Projector functionality, included stand and remote
Cons: Image quality, LCD unresponsive at times, price
Summary: 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 immersive.
Pros: Packs in a projector; high-resolution touchscreen; one-touch video-recording capability; useful 5x optical zoom.
Cons: Pricey; a modest snapper beneath all its gadgetry.
Summary: 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 potential is there for an extremely useful...
Summary: 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 be a winner.
Pros: The projector function is certainly a Wow! thing, but after the Wow! comes the “what’s it for”? The movie mode is good, so it could be useful in a presentation where instant record and playback to a group is the requirement of the day.
Cons: The resistive touch screen is awful. Smart phones, such as the best Android and iPhone devices, use capacitive screens – the lightest brush of a finger fires the action. Resistive screens react to pressure, and this screen needs a lot of pressure. Compared with the best Panasonic and Samsung came...
