The new Coolpix S1100pj is definitely a big step up from its predecessor, the Coolpix S1000pj. It responds even better to the needs of users of projector-equipped digital cameras. The brightness is increased to an amazing 40%, so that the projection is larger and clearer. The results are impressive. Even in a not-so-dark room the images shown are crisper than expected.
Nikon has also decided to make the projection feature one-touch, which simplifies the camera somewhat. Alongside the sharper design comes tweaks to the camera's features. These include the addition of in-camera editing.
The chassis of the S1100pj is slimmer than you may think for a device which has a projector built in, and Nikon assures us that it has sacrificed none of the quality of the snaps the camera takes. In addition, there is a 3-inch TFT LCD touch panel monitor giving you a very easy to use camera.
The Nikon Coolpix S1100pj also supports the projection of computer data when connected to a computer, increasing the ways in which the built-in projector may be used for both personal and business application. The Coolpix S1100pj continues to offer the necessary camera functions for recording still images and movies. It is the model that proposes new ways to enjoy a digital camera with the ability to record and immediately share memories and lasting impressions anywhere and anytime.
The Coolpix S1100pj has a14.1 megapixel resolution lets you capture amazing detailed images. It has a NIKKOR wide angle 5 x optical zoom giving you the precision and sharp resolution you need. This digital camera offers many more exciting features and can definitely be classed as a high quality camera and not just another "cool looking gadget".
The S1100pj also introduces a range of retouch features so you can really get creative, including Fisheye effect, selective color highlighting on an otherwise monochrome picture, and background softening, so you do not have to go anywhere near a computer to edit your images. To liven up your slideshows you can use the built-in animations, background music or slide transitions. Finally, the Paint function means you can add handwritten annotations to your images, even while you are projecting them on a wall.
The Nikon S1100pj is capable of focusing as close as 1.2 inches (three centimeters) in macro mode, and includes both face detection and focus tracking capabilities.

Certainly expect to see a huge interest from people when the Coolpix S1100pj is released mid-September. You will be spoiled for choice as it comes in four cool looking colors, I am definitely giving this the thumbs up and would advise anyone remotely interested in this type of camera to get in quick to avoid any disappointment.
There is already quite a lot of hype about this digital camera, and who am I to disagree with all the positive comments. It's definitely worth pre-ordering and you'll be pleased to know that it's actually $ 80 cheaper than the previous model, the Nikon Coolpix S1000pj.
