If you're the sort of person who wants to see his/her photos and videos as soon as you make them (and who isn't?), Nikon's Coolpix S1100pj Digital Camera (Violet) is going to be your new BFF. With the S1100pj's bright (14 lumens) built-in projector, you can instantly show images at distances up to 7', at sizes up to 47" across, on a screen, blank wall or other flat surface. The S1100pj can also be linked to your PC or Mac so stored pictures or presentations can be shown instantly through the projector (battery life using the projector is approximately 1 hour).
And when you're using the S1100pj, those pictures and video are likely to be spectacular--a 14.1 megapixel CCD sensor, 720p HD video, and a 5x (28-140mm equivalent) NIKKOR glass zoom lens combine to give you the capability to make world-class images, still or moving.
Images can be composed, reviewed, and edited on the camera's 3" TFT LCD, which uses anti-glare coatings and an adjustment slider for better image brightness to complement the ambient lighting conditions. For sharper images, the S1100pj has a 5-Way VR stabilization system that combines multiple technologies to smooth the bumps when shooting under low light conditions or in situations where you can't use flash.
For spectacular portraits, Nikon's Smart Portrait System offers Skin Softening filters (3 levels of adjustment), in-camera Red-Eye Reduction, Face-Priority AF, D-Lighting, a Smile Timer takes the picture only when your subject smiles, and Blink Proof, which automatically takes two quick shots and saves the one with eyes open.
Other outstanding features include Quick Retouch, which works with the D-Lighting function to optimize shadow and highlight detail, fisheye effect, selective color highlighting on an otherwise monochrome picture, and background softening, 17 scene modes, and macro shooting down to 1.2" from the front lens element.
If that's still not quite enough, you can also liven up your slideshows with the built-in animations, background music or slide transitions. Finally, the Paint function means you can add handwritten annotations to your images, even while you're projecting them on a wall.
