Taking a look at the new Nikon projector camera
- 22 Jun, 2010
Nikon are due to release the replacement for the S1000pj. But what do we think?
The Nikon S1000pj was meant to be a revolution, you could take photographs and then project them onto the nearest surface to show off to your adoring fans. However, it didn't sell as well as they had hoped, and there was rumours that they had been dropped by at least one major retailer.
Now Nikon are planning on releasing a second generation projector camera, which supposedly, can also function as a conventional external projector. The camera itself contains 12 megapixels, and 5x wide angled zoom, but the projector only packs 10 lumens of brightness.
Quality over quantity?
There is a risk when trying to pack too many features into one product that you can loose the quality of those features. Unfortunately, when it comes to this specific camera, it seems to be the projector that is compromised. If you have spent time getting your pictures right, you want the projector to show them in their best light (if you will excuse the pun).
Project anywhere, just not there.
As with any projector, you have to be selective when it comes to where you project your images. So let's think for a moment where you would want to project when you have the Nikon camera. Outside on your walk? At a party? With only 10 lumens, the amount of places available to you to project becomes limited.
So what do we think?
We think it is a great idea, but, we think we'll wait until the projector has more lumens and a better picture.
