The nifty S1100pj’s computer connectivity offers a new way to view photos, movies and even presentations. The new camera offers a 14-lumen internal projector complete with a built-in stand and an easy-to-use touch screen interface. With the computer connection feature, the S1100pj also lets you  connect the camera to a computer via USB and project whatever is on the computer screen. Additional creative features include a built-in slide show function playing photos with music, as well as one-touch HD 720p movie recording with easy projection playback. Nikon says the projection function delivers a 47-inch image from more than 7 feet away.

The camera also features a 3-inch touch LCD screen with Clear Colour Display. A new Paint function lets you write and draw on projected images in real time, while a wide range of new in-camera Retouch functions allow you to add stamps for an entertaining effect or rate favorite photos for a more convenient search. Other new functions in the S1100pj’s in-camera Retouch Menu include Soft, Selective Color, Cross Screen, Fisheye Effect, Miniature Effect and Makeup Effect.

The 14.1-megapixel camera includes a 5x wide-angle optical Zoom-Nikkor glass lens (28-140 mm equivalent) and a 5-way VR Image Stabilization System with ISO settings up to 6400. The S1100pj also features 17 scene modes, Subject Tracking, Easy Auto Mode and Nikon’s Smart Portrait System.

The S5100 sports a fast start-up time, a short shutter-release time and one-touch HD (720p) movie recording at 30 fps. It features a number of Nikon technologies used to capture beautiful nighttime and low-light shots with less blur and noise. These features include image processing that results in less noise at high sensitivities, motion detection function, lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function and a new flash control system.

In addition to 12.2-megapixel resolution, the new camera also offers a 2.7-inch LCD display, 5x optical zoom and a 4-way VR Image Stabilization System with ISO settings to 3200 at full resolution. The S5100 also adds a new tripod detection function found on premium Nikkor lenses. This function detects handheld or tripod shooting and automatically selects the ideal exposure, ISO sensitivity and shutter speed to reduce image blur and ensure sharp photos.

The camera, available in purple, blue and black, has 18 scene modes, Scene Auto Selector, Subject Tracking and Nikon’s Smart Portrait System.
