Nikon S1000pj Projector Camera, I just love it!

When Nikon first announced the S1000pj Projector Camera I had a good laugh and just forget about it… But then the opportunity came for me to test this camera and to give it a try.

Since the S1000pj is not our average Point & Shoot, I will try to review this baby differently, and skip many aspect that we usually cover when review a camera, and let’s be say it now… And despite its 12.1Mpix Censor, the image quality of the S1000pj just plain sucks… No offense to any Nikon fan boys here, since the S1000pj is in fact not worse or better than other 12.1Mpix capable Point & Shoot, but there is no way for us to advise you to purchase a S1000pj solely on its image quality.

Now this said, the S1000pj is definitively not your average Camera, and its huge plus comes to its tiny little embedded video projector module which will change once and for all the way you used to share photo and video with your friends.
Really it makes sense when you think about it, and we wonder why such cameras haven’t reach the market before.
Making it WAY more expensive than other equivalent Point & Shoot, the S1000pj with its Video projector is just brilliant and will give you instant sharing capability wherever you are and almost whenever you want. Just shoot a couple of picture or a tiny little video, find a dark place whether at home or in the street, press the Video projector button… “Tadaaaa” You can instantly share with your friends your photo on a surface equivalent to a 40” display…
If seriously you cannot expect HD capabilities on such tiny projector, the output image is just enough to enjoy a propose slideshow with your friends or family and share how much fun you had during your holidays.

Granted the S1000pj is more expensive than other 12.1Mpix capable cameras, but the addition of this video projector is enough to justify the price bump, and with an impressive built quality added to an easy to use UI and correct pictures up to ISO 640 (Clean enough to be printed), really worth the extra cash needed to get one of these.
No of course if you still don’t get it or if you think that this video projector is just a lame gadget, and you will be wrong, it will be difficult for us to advise you this camera, but if you just think about it and often needs to share pictures with your friends or parents but don’t want to be bothered with cables or do not have a TV with Jpeg and SD card support around you, the S1000pj is definitively made for you !

PS : For those curious to see some photo samples taken with the S1000pj just follow this link !

    Bought one of these because I wanted a good brand that would take decent photos and try out this new gimmick “projector feature”. Turns out the projector’s really good. Photo quality is great (which is what you expect from Nikon) and the projector works really well, even in rooms that aren’t completely dark. Build quality is also very good. I have a 3metre screen in my theatre room. This tiny projector was able to fill it up without issues. A very happy owner here. Time owned with camera: 1 week.
