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.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
