Nikon Coolpix S1100pj Reviews

PhotoRadar reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1100pj and writes;
“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.”
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

ePhotozine reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1100pj and writes;
“Images taken at the base ISO and ISO100 are clear, sharp and full of detail. Although there is no significant noise by ISO200, there are signs of softening due to noise reduction present, which can be seen in finer details. This softening due to noise reduction continues as the sensitivity increases and becomes quite noticeable by ISO800…”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1100pj and writes;
“Overall then this is a fun camera to own and use, and while the novelty value makes it stand out from the compact camera crowd, the price you have to pay for it plus issues around the image quality mean it cannot attain the points heights we’d have thought possible.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

NeoCamera reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1100pj and writes;
“The Nikon Coolpix S1100pj is all about its projector. Given the fact that this camera is as ultra-compact as many of its peers without a projector, this is an achievement in itself. The projector works well and can project an image up to 47” diagonally from 2.4 meters away. The output is clear with a resolution similar to a standard definition television. “
Rating: ★★★½☆ reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1100pj and writes;
The bottom line: This point-and-shoot delivers acceptable performance and image quality, and its onboard projector works well for its class, too. “
Rating: ★★★½☆

InfoSync reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1100pj and writes;
“We also get 720p HD video, which performed well in bright light and gave us a lot of noise in low light. We could optically zoom in video mode, which was a plus, and it was a lot of fun watching video on the projector. “

Rating: ★★★★☆

PhotographyBlog reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1100pj and writes;
“Being able to show-off your photos, videos and work to an audience in a way that you can’t with other digicams, however, instantly elevates the Nikon Coolpix S1100pj above the competition, for both casual and business users alike.”

Sharper results with five advanced Nikon image stabilizing features*1
Nikon’s 5-way VR Image Stabilization System utilizes both Optical lens shift and Electronic VR image stabilization systems to help produce blur-free images. High ISO 6400*2 capability allows faster shutter speeds when shooting in low light or capturing fast-moving subjects. Motion Detection automatically controls shutter speed and the ISO setting to compensate for subject movement and camera shake. And, Nikon’s original BSS (Best Shot Selector) function automatically shoots a series of sequential frames and saves the one with the sharpest focus.

Nikon’s Smart Portrait System with Skin Softening
Face-priority AF helps produce more satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure for as many as 12 faces in the framed shot. Skin Softening function detects and analyzes a framed subject’s skin, and then adjusts smoothness to produce enhanced results.

Smile Timer automatically releases the shutter when the subject smiles, while its Blink Proof function shoots two sequential frames, then saves the one in which the subject’s eyes are widest open. Blink Warning presents an alert when it suspects that someone in the shot has blinked. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects any perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.

Intelligent automated shooting modes that promote carefree shooting
Nikon’s Easy Auto Mode makes it faster and easier to capture the moment by eliminating the need to manually select a scene mode to match the intended shot. This intelligent function determines the subject, analyzes the surrounding settings, and then automatically selects the appropriate scene mode for optimal results. Subject Tracking enhances the shooting experience by following the subject’s movement to ensure clear focus and quick response when that special shutter opportunity presents itself.

Quick Retouch
Quick Retouch automatically adjusts the contrast and saturation of selected photos to create an enhanced copy with the right finishing touch.
