Nikon Coolpix S1100pj review

The second Coolpix camera to come complete with projector functionality

Nikon coolpix s1100pj

The Coolpix S1100pj fulfils its aim as a pocket projector well, with large clear images and the helpful inclusions of the built-in stand and remote. Indeed, this is the camera's major selling point and with no alternative than the S1100pj's predecessor – at least not in camera form – it's likely to attract attention.

But those who are drawn to it will need to place a great deal of value on this feature alone, as it's an otherwise average camera with frustrating operation and mediocre image quality, certainly not to the standard of other camera's with a £330 asking price.

Hopefully one day the technology will proliferate to other manufacturers which will create both variety and competition, but for now the S1100pj remains a pricey lifestyle gadget that can only be said to do one thing well.
