The Nikon Coolpix s1000pj is the world's first compact camera with an inbuilt projector.

Nikon Australia today announced the Coolpix s1000pj: the world’s first compact camera with a built-in projector. The Nikon Coolpix s1000pj digital camera can project photos and movie clips on to any flat surface at the press of a button. The images can be displayed at up to 40 inches in size (around one metre).

Pictures can be projected individually, or as a slideshow complete with music and digital effects. The Nikon Coolpix s1000pj will come bundled with a projector stand and a remote control that can be used to operate the camera and projector.

The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj can snap 12-megapixel photos and it has a 5x optical Nikkor zoom wide-angle lens (28mm to 240mm) and a 2.7in LCD. It can shoot photos at up to ISO 6400. The projector has a VGA resolution and a brightness rating of 10 lumens (the same brightness as many mini projectors).

Our colleagues at PC World US had some brief hands-on time with the Coolpix s1000pj. They reported that the projector works well in a dimly lit room, especially when images are projected on a blank white surface about a foot away from the camera. (The projector still produced visible images when projected onto a wall about 10 feet away, but they were less sharp and bright.)

The Coolpix s1000pj will be available in September for a recommended retail price of $699.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
