Nikon UK today announces the introduction of the world’s first camera with an integrated projector, as part of its new autumn/winter COOLPIX range. The ground-breaking COOLPIX S1000pj is expected to shake up the compact digital camera market and revolutionise the way we share images and videos, using personal projection.

People can’t help but be blown away by such a beautifully crafted device. It’s packed with everything you need to take amazing photos so easily as well as to show your pictures; a great screen and amazing projector. Sharing photos and videos has never been so easy – or so fun.”
