Further advances to projector-equipped digital camera with brighter projection and larger touch panel
The built-in ultra-compact projector increases the ways in which the camera can be used

TOKYO –┬áNikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the COOLPIX S1100pj, its second projector-equipped digital camera, offering brighter projection and a larger touch panel monitor.

With the release of the COOLPIX S1000pj, the world's first digital camera with a built-in projector, in October 2009, Nikon proposed new ways to enjoy a digital camera with the ability to project and share images captured with the camera.

The new COOLPIX S1100pj responds even better to the needs of users of projector-equipped digital cameras. By increasing projection brightness by 40%*, projection is larger and clearer. In addition, adoption of a 3-inch TFT LCD touch panel monitor enables intuitive camera operation. The COOLPIX S1100pj also supports projection of computer data when connected to a computer, increasing the ways in which the built-in projector may be used for both personal and business application. The COOLPIX S1100pj, with its brighter and clearer projection, simpler operation and support for a broader range of applications, continues to offer the necessary camera functions for recording still images and movies. It is the model that proposes new ways to enjoy a digital camera with the ability to record and immediately share memories and lasting impressions anywhere and anytime.

COOLPIX S1100pj Primary Features

1.40% brighter projector function

By increasing projector brightness from the 10 lumens supported by the COOLPIX S1000pj to 14 lumens, projection at a distance up to 240 cm and a size of up to 47-inch display is possible, and projection in brighter surroundings, such as inside a tent or onto a ceiling is clearer. What's more, simultaneously display of images in the camera monitor with projection put projector operation in the palm of your hand, allowing for more ways to enjoy the feature.

2.3-inch, 460k-dot TFT LCD touch panel monitor with beautiful reproduction of even the smallest details

High-resolution monitor

The 460k-dot high-resolution monitor with high visibility reproduces detailed portions more clearly.

Resistive touch panel

The touch panel supports intuitive operation, including utilization of the touch shutter function for focusing and shooting, with the touch of a finger.

Hard coating

Even with touch panel operations, fingerprints do not easily remain on the monitor and those that do are more easily wiped off.

3.Projection of a computer display with USB connection of the camera to the computer

Functions for computer connection

When the camera is connected to a Windows PC or Macintosh computer, images and text created and displayed on the computer can be projected by the camera as is.

4.Interactive operation of a variety of retouch functions utilizing touch panel characteristics

With projection

Collaboration between the touch panel and projector function allow users to add text, drawings, or decorations such as flowers or fish during projection for interactive operations that make projection more enjoyable.

With monitor playback

Six filter effects and "Glamour retouch," which applies adjustments to faces detected in images, are available for editing images without using a computer. These effects can be applied by simply tapping an image displayed in the monitor. Images to which effects have been applied are stored separately from original images, enabling editing of the same image in a variety of ways.

6 filter effects

(1) Color options

Modifies color tones.

(2) Soft

Emphasizes the subject by blurring the area surrounding the point that is tapped.

(3) Selective color

Keep one specified color in the picture and change other colors to black and white.

(4) Cross screen

Produce star shapes with lines radiating outward from bright objects such as reflected sunlight or city lights.

(5) Fisheye

Make pictures look as if they were taken with a fisheye lens.

(6) Miniature effect

A diorama effect is created by sharpening the center of the image and blurring portions at the top and bottom of the image.

5.High-definition movie recording that preserves excitement at the touch of a button

Adoption of a movie-record button enables quick and simple high-definition movie recording at a frame size of 1280 x 720 pixels.

6.Circle motif and design that emphasizes projector operation and enjoyment User-friendly design

A circle motif and design has been adopted to emphasize the projector window and lens. The camera has been designed to express the enjoyment and user friendliness the projector offers.
Project stand

Advanced projector operation

An integrated projector button and projector focus dial has been positioned on the top of the camera for a design that is also functional. Adoption of a dial structure makes focus fine tuning simpler than with the S1000pj. In addition, the built-in projector stand on the bottom of the camera enables projection at a clear 10-degree angle by simply placing the camera on a table or desk. This eliminates the need for a separate dedicated stand.

7.An effective pixel count of 14.1 million pixels and a built-in 5X optical wide zoom NIKKOR lens with a zoom range beginning at 28mm (equivalent with 35mm [135] format angle of view)
