A dozen new kinds of point-and-shoot cameras flood electronics stores
each year, and that’s often just from a single company. To distinguish
itself, Nikon took an interesting approach with its Coolpix S1000pj.
Instead of focusing on pictures, this camera shines--literally. It can
project photos and movies on a wall so everyone can see them. We like
the concept and had fun presenting instant vacation slideshows while
still traveling. But the average quality of both its photos and its
projection make this camera purely a technoholic’s toy. Discerning
photographers and home buyers on a budget should think twice.
