Nikon has announced two new models in its Coolpix compact digital camera range. The Nikon Coolpix S5100 is a 12.2Mp camera with the ability to take photos even in low light conditions. In this respect it's similar to the Canon IXUS 300 HS we reviewed earlier this summer.
The second newcomer to the Coolpix range is the S1100pj. This is a 14.1Mp camera with a built-in projector. Capable of throwing an image on to a nearby screen, the Nikon Coolpix S1100pj produces 14 Ansi lumens of light - a modest amount but enough to enlarge a video clip and show it off at A4 size in a darkened room.
The Nikon Coolpix S110pj has a 5x optical zoom. Images can be previewed on its 3in 260K dot-resolution touchscreen LCD. Four dedicated low light modes for capturing shots at night. The camera has an ISO rating of up to 3200 and combines this with low noise. A motion detector, flash and lens shift vibration reduction all feature.
The S1100pj is the second projector-toting compact camera that Nikon has launched. The first model, the S1000pj, went onsale in 2009 and was a world first. The new model goes onsale in the UK from 16 September with a recommended retail price of £349.
