Nikon Coolpix S1200pj Reviews

Photographyblog reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1200pj and writes;
“Macro performance is very good, only allowing you to focus as close as 3cms away from the subject… Anti-shake is a feature that works very well when hand-holding the camera in low-light conditions or when using the telephoto end of the zoom range.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Pocket-lint reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1200pj and writes;
“For low light photography without flash, an ISO range is provided that runs from ISO80 to ISO6400, again a respectable level of spec for a compact camera. But at ISO3200 and ISO6400 resolution drops down to three megapixels to limit the gritty appearance of image noise, which is a slight if not uncommon cheat.”

Techradar reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1200pj and writes;
“The projector is fun, and the camera’s easy to use. Nikon’s automatic shooting modes, including Smart Portrait, make it a simple process to take generally pleasing pictures.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

T3 reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1200pj and writes;
“The suggested cost of £399 is considerably more than a point and shoot camera with the ‘basics’ of a 14 megapixel resolution, 5x optical zoom and 1280×720 pixels video, so you have got to want to use the projection facility for something more than just a bit of fun.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Ephotozine reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1200pj and writes;
“This is the third projector camera from Nikon and is still a pretty unique product on the market. The projector works well and is versatile given that it can also be connected to a computer and an iOS device. Image quality is good for a compact but on the downside, it is quite expensive and bulky, so it’s likely you’ll only want the camera if the projector is the feature which really excites you.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

CNET reviews the Nikon Coolpix S1200pj and writes;
“Pans and zooms are smooth, and thanks to the optional continuous autofocus we were able to reframe our shots while shooting and keep everything sharp, with only momentary lapses into blur as it corrected itself. Compensation for changes to the level of available light were handled both smoothly and swiftly, for an impressive finished result.”
