Nikon Coolpix S1200pj camera projects iPhone, iPad

Nikon's projector cam is back and has a cable for connecting to Apple devices.


The Coolpix S1200pj is the third generation of Nikon's compact camera with a built-in pico projector. The first version let you show just content from the camera. The second let you view stuff with the projector when connected to computer. This time around, you can get a cable for connecting to to an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, and iPod photo and project photos, movies, and Web content from the device.

Though it looks a bit different, the camera itself seems pretty much the same as the S1100pj: 14-megapixel CCD sensor, 5x f3.9-5.8 28-140mm zoom lens, 460K-dot-resolution 3-inch LCD, and 720p HD-resolution movie capture.

The Coolpix S1200pj comes in black and pink and will sell for $429.95. That's a whole lotta money for what amounts to a basic compact point-and-shoot with a projector in it. And it seems like the cable for connecting to Apple devices is not included.
