Nikon may have just introduced two new DSLR cameras, but the company is not neglecting its consumer offerings, rolling out the new Coolpix S70, Coolpix S570, Coolpix S640, and the Coolpix S1000pj—and the latter is the world’s first compact camera to include a built-in projector, for sharing photos with friends and familiar on any convenient surface at at sizes up to 40 inches across.

The Coolpix S1000pj packs a 12.1 megapixel resolution, a 2.7-inch LCD display, a 5× optical zoom lens, and stores images to SD/SDHC cards plus 36 MB of internal memory. But the camera’s signature feature is an integrated projector that enables users to share shots with friends and family on any convenient flat surface at sizes up to 40 inches. The camera comes with a convenient projector stand and a wireless remote for flipping through photos. The camera also boasts a face-priority autofocus and skin-softening features for portraits, built-in retouching capability, 16 scene modes, four movie modes (with audio), and a time zone function for easy use in multiple locations. The camera can also manage shots down to ISO 6400, although resolution drops down to 3 megapixels. The S1000pj will be available in September at a suggested price of $430, with either black or silver bodies.

Nikon is also adding some other new members to its Coolpix line, including the Coolpix S70, featuring a 12 megapixel resolution, 5× optical zoom, and 3.5-inch OLED display, along with both optical and electronic image stabilization for clear shots along with Nikon’s smart portrait system and skin softening technology. The Coolpix S570 features a 10 megapixel resolution and 3× optical zoom, while the Coolpix S640 pops back up to 12.2 megapixels and a 5× optical zoom with image stabilization features and a face-tracking lock-on feature that tracks and maintains focus on a subject…even if they move out of frame for as long as three seconds.
