Just to make sure that the novelty of in-built projectors doesn’t rub off, the new Nikon Coolpix S1200pj projector camera is out with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad compatibility. What this means is users can now project images and videos stored an iOS device through the camera by simply hooking both gadgets to each other.
Previously, the concerned Coolpix members weren’t interested in projecting anything more than content shot on the camera or stored on a PC. This changes with the S1200pj which happens to be the company’s third projector-equipped imaging product. There’s a dedicated cable for connecting the camera to an iDevice and users can also project streaming videos from the internet.
Offering 14.1MP capabilities, this snapper users 5x optical zoom Nikkor lens with a zoom ranges starting at 28mm. While the older S1100pj was allowed a projector brightness of 14 lumens, the Nikon Coolpix S1200pj delivers up to 20 lumens and a maximum display size of 60” from a distance of up to 310cm. What’s more, the single-lamp technology has been replaced by the three-lamp system for better image reproduction.
An Expeed C2 image-processing engine works under the hood to improve on image quality and processing speeds. The user interface includes a 3” 460k-dot TFT LCD and there are 18 integrated scene modes to choose from. Among the other main features four image stabilization functions, Easy auto mode, Smart portrait mode and a bunch of the usual effects and touch-ups.
The Nikon Coolpix S1200pj projector camera is available in hues of pink or black for $429.95.
