Nikon's S1000pj comes with a novel feature — a built-in projector. Use it to review images and videos from a soccer game at the picnic afterwards or on the wall of your home later that night. You can project images onto surfaces up to six feet away from the camera, or as close as 10 inches. And the included remote makes it easy to flip through photos or queue up a slideshow of your favorite pics.
The S1000pj is an extremely capable digital camera. You get detailed 12-megapixel photos, and a handy 5X optical zoom for bringing your subjects closer. Nikon's digital and optical vibration reduction compensates for camera movement caused by a shaky hand, giving you blur-free photos. The clear 2-11/16" LCD makes it easy to compose photos and videos.
This camera's intelligent shooting features help you get great photos of your favorite folks. The S1000pj recognizes and automatically focuses on the faces in your shots, and can smooth out uneven skin tones for a flattering look. It even alerts you if one of your friends blinks while you shoot, so you can try again. And in-camera editing functions let you correct the red-eye effect and brighten dark shadows before you print your photos.
The camera's built-in 36MB memory holds approximately six photos at top resolution add optional SD or SDHC memory cards for more storage.
The best type of camera is the one you actually have on hand when photo-worthy moments come along. At less than an inch thick, these tiny cameras fit in a pocket or handbag, so it's easy to take them with you just about anywhere. Capture memories with ease, from a night out with friends to a little leaguer's home run swing. Today's compact point-and-shoot cameras take sharp, detailed pictures, and some let you record high-def videos, too.
