Nikon S1100 pj

The Nikon Coolpix S1100pj is getting popular by the day. It is an one of a kind compact digital camera which flaunts an in-built projector. Well, not to mention, the projector undoubtedly allows for live display on a blank surface of images directly from a connected laptop, or you can try projecting from pictures or video stored in memory. Infact, the 3 inch high-resolution touch screen is efficient enough to allow for a quick and intuitive interface to move through various pictures, also to add it there is the option to draw on top of images in real time. There is an excellent 14.1 megapixels that takes photography to new horizons, and HD video is recorded at 720p resolution. To make it a little more spicy they have provided with 5x optical zoom which allows for closeups, and a combination of lens-shift and electronic VR accounts for slight movements of the camera to provide a sharper picture. What’s more there is a Smart Portrait System and Easy Auto Mode work together to intuitively adopt the correct settings for any situation.
